Tomatoe Fail

I am in the middle of my first garden fail of the year.   Way back in March I planted my pepper and tomato seeds. The plants sprouted just fine and everything was going the way it should.  Then there was Bijou.  Bijou is a 16 year old cat who came into my life when he was a 3 week old kitten and maybe gets away with more than he should.  He  decided that tomato seedlings that are sitting on a sunny windowsill made the perfect cat bed. so he curled up on them for a nap.  Needless to say he killed all of then.  I decided I would try again since I still have a few weeks before the danger of frost has past.  So far one has sprouted.  Looks like I am growing tomatoes from transplants this year.  Lesson learned?  Stick toothpicks in starter trays to make them uncomfortable.

What have you failed at recently? What did you learn from it?  Leave me comment and let me know

Oops I Forgot

I was supposed to tell you about corned beef ravioli with mustard sauce. Recently the hooligan and I have been making our own pasta. One of the things we like to do is to make interesting ravioli. Now there are lots of simple pasta recipes online so I am going to concentrate on the filling and the sauce.
Our filling was corned beef chopped fine and potatoes that were mashed but still chunky. The sauce was simple too. Melted butter and deli style brown mustard with a splash of irish whiskey. They were a fantastic appetizer for the podcast crew.
I am sorry it took so long to tell you about this recipe. Next time spring! And craft projects.
