Maybe I'm just hungry

I just read a book that made me hungry and made me laugh at the same time. I am a little hungry. This morning I put a Texas style brisket in the oven to slow cook, and during lunch (because the top element in my oven is broken) I went home to flip it over. One sniff of that and I've been dreaming of dinner ever since.

Sort of silly then that a book with lemons and bananas on the cover can make my mouth water.


Counting Crocodiles by Judy Sierra; illustrated by Will Hillenbrand

I hope you can find it at your library. It's a counting book with a very fun rhyme.

Here is a haiku and a short cooking tip too, because it's been so long since I've offered anything:

The long night
The Monkey thinks how
To catch hold of the moon.
-Shiki

I love homemade banana chips made in my food dehydrator. I add a little extra flavor to mine by dipping the bananas in lemon juice before drying. Yum! Now that makes my mouth water.
