Last Update: 7 January, 2011
- So what's the big deal? We made a BLT. From scratch, including curing and smoking our own bacon, growing our own wheat, and making mayonnaise from local eggs. Oh, and added garden onions and avocados to make it a BLOAT.
- Spice Boy(z) Camp again made it to Burning Man. As usual, the GreaseBeast was loaded to the rails with too much crap, but it sure made for a comfortable and well-stocked camp. This was the best weather I've experienced there, but that does not say that there were no big dust (and rain!) storms. (Warning: yet more adult images and rampant art, plus a few large downloads.)
- After a rainy Spring, the weather cleared up just in time for our Flame-on Hotluck. With a contest for the hottest dishes.
- After a too-long hiatus, we enjoyed more hot food with friends at the Phoenix Hotluck.
- We travelled around Europe with our nieces Marissa and Hillary, plus a bit on our own. We visited over 20 cities, some new, some quite familiar. Along the way, we also joined some friends at the #2 restaurant, the Fat Duck. The first portion, travelling with Hillary, is now posted.
- We traveled to Spain and Morocco, and dined with friends at the top restaurant in the world, El Bulli. Twice.
- Roswitha volunteered with the American Red Cross for the Wild Fires in San Diego Oct. 26 - Nov. 4, 2007.
- The Spice Boyz were again back at Burning Man, this time joined by a Spice Görl, Roswitha! (Yes, she was convinced to brave the dust, and reports that she had a good time, mostly, except for the dust. This earned her her playa name, Dust Bunny.) We were joined by another woman, our mutant vehicle Ginger Rogers, the Green Woman, who danced around the playa fueled by waste vegetable oil. She has her own gallery within the link above. (Warning: yet more adult images and rampant art, plus a few large downloads.)

As always, the food was outstanding, the demon rum was demonic, and the guests were both entertaining and entertained. A great time was had by all. A call for recipes has gone out; please stay tuned.
