Ragged Winged Butterfly & Bee

This butterfly was so intoxicated by the flowers it would not leave. I was able to get multiple photos. The monarchs, which will be featured here tomorrow, were flitting around a bit.

The Great Toads of Kona Ranch

One of them anyway. I just snapped this a few minutes ago. I was out on the patio and heard something behind me moving. Sweet Pea perked up and ran over to the path to check it out. I actually thought it might be an opossum since I saw a large one out there last night. Nope, just a noisy toad.

Homemade Burger Buns

Made by txrad. The height of them is not ideal, but hey, first try. And way cheaper than those bought in a store. And nothing tastes like fresh bread. Nothing.

Yeast Infatuation

We normally buy those 3 attached packets of yeast for our baking needs. They cost about $1.09 each for 3 packs. Each pack has 2 1/2 teaspoons of yeast.

txrad decided to buy a bulk container of yeast which filled up an entire quart jar. It was under $3.00 and should provide us with enough yeast for 64 pizzas. Prior to this we would spend over $23 on yeast for 64 pizzas. Something to think about.

I think the little granules are beautiful to behold.

Check back tomorrow morning to see something new txrad made using yeast.

Debate Night #3

Let's hope it's worth the wait. I can't handle another snoozer.
