We Have Grill Guests!

A few days ago when it was 60 degrees here...Den went out to the deck to start the grill...upon opening the grill...we found her...and a friend. They have a lovely house constructed on the grill pan...so...we gave them a huge Italian roll...and we are leaving them there. We did not have the heart to hurt them or move them...I want Den to take them some dinner today. Researching/googling little mouse treats now...






Ok...loving this book and it is not Historical Fiction as I thought...no clue why I thought that...but it's lovely and it is about a family of midwives although I have to say some of the midwifery baby delivering stuff is not fun to read...sigh! Birthing pools? Birthing balls? Pulling out your own baby? TMI...
I will finish this one later today.





That's it for me on a Friday...tidying up...making Jamie Oliver's creamy mushrooms on toast for Den for lunch and the pasta Chef Tom Colichio made on the Today Show for dinner...pasta, broccoli, ham, Parmesano Reggiano cheese...pretty much all done in one pot! Love one pot suppers on a cold Friday night!






I leave you with this thought...

  1. I miss wide pasta. I used to love to just serve it with butter, shaved parm and toasted pine nuts. They don't make wide gluten free pasta, yet. I know the shape has nothing to do with taste really, but I do believe the wider surface area catches the butter better :)

    Mice, in your grill? My son had a mouse in the choir room that was eating music sheets. He was told to capture it with a trap so he built a humane one but when he caught the mouse, there were babies too and now they all live in the choir room.

  4. We had a tiny field mouse in our last home in upstate New York. We used a humane trap, caught him (her?) and released it behind our woodpile out back and put some crumbs there to encourage it to stay there. We had cats and the cats never caught it or tried to kill it either.

    Love that pasta dish for your dinner. I've made something similar: sometimes I use turkey kielbasa cubed-up and sauteed in olive oil,with broccoli, cheese tortellini, and freshly grated parmesan. Yum!

  5. Be very careful or you will have an infestation in no time! We get field mice and deer mice nesting in the garage occasionally. When I had hip surgery, I could not drive. A mouse moved into my car!

  6. I cannot stand mice....I would have evicted them! LOL

    The food looks good...and I enjoyed The Secrets of Midwives...but there were some parts that were not pleasant...

  7. Feeding mice?! Girl, you are too kind! Off with them, I say...lol...I'm scared of them. Pulling out you own baby?!? That's possible?!? Pushing--- yes. Pulling?!? Sounds freaky scary! Lol...Whew!
