Does anybody have any ideas where I can find more photos of the 3rd kitchen? There are no more at the original site and i'm totally in love with it.

I spent a summer working as the office coordinator of a butler academy and placement agency. The training manuals were wild. At least one class devoted to "how to properly iron a newspaper", hours of learning how to make an attractice fire and a laundry list of other skills IU didn't even know existed.

I don't have a good photo, but my xmas tree this year is an antique judy that I've stuffed full of white lights and put a star on top of.

I made lovely chilled bortsch for a picnic today. 2 pounds of beets boiled and chilled, a pint of rasberries, a handful of red onion, lots (like 1/2 a cup) lemon juice some balsamic and a few spoons of sugar all blended with beet cooking water. So many compliments and so wonderfully summery.

Not technically a cocktail, but a wonderful summer drink that has the added benefit of being wonderful made without the booze for those who can't imbibe or for evenings when a lot needs to be done.
1 ounce rum, approx 3 ounces spicy ginger beer, 2 generous dashes angostura bitters and 1 tsp lime cordial. Serve over lots of ice with a wedge of lime.
They somehow cut through the humidity and refresh like nothing else.

Well, it wouldn't be a bargain for Americans, but for Canadians reading the thread I always go with 40 Creek Whisky which is $25 for a 26 (sadly good value up here) . My partner is a high end bartender and we tend to buy this for drinking at home. Fantastic as a summer drink with maple syrup, lemon and mint.

Toasted miso sammies. I spread a thin layer of miso and mayo on lightly toasted bread and then top with a piece of fried tofu and some veggies (sprouts are especially good)
