So, was out yesterday as I said, and had the most fantastic homemade espresso ever. This family had a new machine, and it produced CREMA. Crema is the dark foam from a super duper espresso. We have a stovetop espresso maker here, but there is no crema. A person is tempted to get a wee little Mister Espresso machine....
In 2009 so far:
--feels like life starts again, just finished glazing a wee little load of potlets, firing in the wee little kiln.
--got my first paid order of 2009 last night :)
--and today? Still have to clean the house, which may take days to do a proper new year's cleaning, but we are making jam today, from berries we picked and froze last summer. 4 batches.
--I am in the mood to try making peanut butter cups again, you will recall last week's didn't turn out right.
