Brussels sprouts. Gary doesn't like them but I thought why should I deny myself some. I didn't want to turn on the oven since it was very hot day. I decided to use the toaster oven. These are so easy to cook. Place the sprouts in a bowl and add a tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with some sea salt and freshly ground pepper and toss to coat. Place in an oven proof cooking pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350 F. They were so delicious.
Guess What? I got a call on Thursday that I now have a permanent spot at the farmer's market to sell my pottery. That means I don't have to get up at 4:30 and show up and not know if I have a spot. I can also set up on Tuesday evenings. I know the Tuesday evening market isn't as well attended. I'll have to see if it's worth going on Tuesdays. This past Saturday I didn't have many sales at the beginning of the market so I stepped away to get some vegetables. While I was gone, Gary manned the booth and he sold three items. Some people are just natural sales people and Gary's one of them.
The other day Gary was reading my blog post about tagines. He said that type of pottery needs to be thrown and I can do it. Gary thinks he can throw a tagine and he's only used the wheel a few times. I guess a positive attitude helps; we shall see. Stay tuned for some pottery thrown by Gary. I'm firing a glaze load so check back for some new pots too. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
