I'll tell you how to make it, just in case you still have any appetite left after looking at those pictures. It's really easy. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (you could also spray the pan, but if you're lazy like me, then parchment paper is your best friend). Place a slice of bread on the paper. On the bread, layer basil leaves, tomato slices, and cheese. Bake at 350 until the cheese is melted. Mmmm. Just don't try to take a picture of it.

And here is a partial picture of the kitchen. It has a lot of cupboards and windows that look out to the front yard.

The first was this recording of cat and dog sounds that Lia gave me a couple of years ago. Believe it or not, I've actually used it. Woof woof! Meow meow!

Karl and I hit Maxwell Street Days first thing Friday morning. We didn't buy much, but we had a good time browsing. I did pick up these cute dish towels and napkins at Tellus Mater. Karl thought we had plenty of kitchen towels. He didn't know about the ones I recently ruined in my jam-making experiments.
Lia and I went to Hilldale on Sunday afternoon, where the tail end of the sidewalk sales meant great markdowns. I went crazy on the baby clothes. Playthings had almost everything in their sale 90 percent off. Ninety percent! That means that if something is usually $25.00, it was $2.50! One of the sweaters I bought was originally $74.00. I'm not sure who would ever pay that much for a baby item; I could barely justify $7.40. My Baby Presents Tote is now fully stocked... and maybe, if things go well, we'll be able to use some of these things for our own little one in not too long!
