John’s mom wanted to get us an air fryer for Christmas. I wasn’t super excited about a “gadget” that I knew was going to take up quite a bit of space but I selected a color and said OK. John assured me we could return it. I didn’t promise to keep it on the counter. Deal.
The fryer came. We took it to Missouri to my parents to test drive it over the New Year holiday. An instant hit.
Since that time we’ve tried multiple items and for the first time tonight, I did a large chicken breast for him. I looked on @pinterest for a guideline on time and temp and ended up breading the chicken in a little panko bread crumb after covering it in a little ranch (because it was handy) and some tumeric for his high BP. It turned out excellent! How exciting.

Well. We stopped at the ATM and mom checked a couple items I just sprayed this morning to make sure they were nestled safely (we packed the vehicle last night so these were new additions). We heard a clickity clunk and mom said “I didn’t like the sound of that” but we kept rolling (things always shift while driving). About a quarter mile later we realized the hatch was open and stopped immediately. One must love automation–the super helpful rear cargo door closing mechanism failed us. We only lost one item and figured we knew where it was…

The annual Growing Place Gardener’s Art Festival is coming up fast. Saturday, June 25, the doors will open at 9 a.m. at the 25w471 Plank Road, Naperville, Illinois, IL location.
I will be located on the east side of the front lawn. I’m very excited to be back this year and hope to see you there. I’ll have my always-popular assortment of garden-inspired goods including watering cans, stools, chairs and more. There’s also a good chance I may have some additional India-inspired items, so be sure to come and say hello.
Watch here for updates and photos of what I’ll be bringing to the show.
See you soon!
