Hey, Jeannette, I was thinking exactly the same thing.  It’s probably the ‘quiet before the storm’ of the new book coming out.  I think you should have a holiday too - you COULD come to Scotland….

Hi everybody! I’ve been busy with work and garden—it’s school uniform ordering season at work. I have a huge backlog of posts for my blog (sigh) including several Rose recipes.

Wish I could send you all some green beans—we’re having a huge harvest this year. Today we am cooking down some “scratch and dent” apples from the co-op for applesauce, processing and freezing a 10 lb box of Michigan blueberries, and processing some green beans for freezing. Dinner tonight will be Wisconsin brats with potato salad and steamed green beans, followed by ice cream with fruit on top. It’s summer!

Ooooooooooooooh blueberries!! My favorite. Many good blueberry memories.

..............As the oldest of three, I always had to share everything. One day, when I was about 8, my dad called me into the dining room. there was a large glass bowl water in it. And the treasures within this water were my first blueberries, and just for me! I had a ball smile

Congratulations, Cate!  What a lovely picture of brotherly love , I hope it continues as they grow up. 
Barbara, I have blueberries every morning on my porridge, I read they are good for the eyesight, but I like them anyway.  I have never been able to buy them in the quantity you quote though!  Wish I could!  Another thing, what on earth are brats, apart from being naughty children?  Not heard of them in a food context, must be an American thing? question

Hi Jeanette!  Wisconsin “brats” are short for the German-style sausage, bratwurst.  Parts of Wisconsin are great for German-influenced food and beer, Milwaukee is known for its Oktoberfest.

Cate, congratulations on your new arrival, so sweet to see them in a moment of peace and love!

I’m hoping this weekend, or early next week at the latest, to post a Bake-Off cake, I’m about half way through it now.  It always seems to me that projects (like baking) proceed in slow motion during the summer, what with kids out of school, travel plans, and hotter weather.

Congratulations, Cate, what a great picture of the little ones.  I did wonder where you were.  Hope you’ll be back baking soon.  I intend to make something for the bake off next weekend.

Gene, I can’t believe you have survived without an oven for two months.  Have you been buying bread?  Where can one read info about that oven?  Is it gas fired?  I have to say it looks very interesting and probably makes great pizza.

Cate, congratulations!

Julie, thanks for the clarification. I hear that Wisconsin “brats” have changed a bit from their German ancestor. Jim and I rarely eat red meat but we always have to make an exception a few times a year and grill some brats. It’s just one of those iconic Wisconsin summer things…

I have the itch pretty bad. The last two weeks has been the worst because the repair guy came but the factory sent the wrong parts. I got a call this morning that they have the correct parts now but it will take them another week to schedule a technician. Arrrgggh!
All I know about that oven is the craigslist pictures. I am fascinated by mechanisms though and it has all of those mysterious wheels and levers. What do you suppose they do?
