I never posted a photo of the area off the basement that I bricked earlier this summer with the bricks I pulled up from the old walkway. Here it is:
Look at that level grade. Like a pro!
From the front. I put just regular sand in between the bricks, not the more expensive super sand. It looks so good!
On another note, check this out:
Fried lard bits. OMG, so good. They're going into a dish very soon. There are some things that I've learned from the Austrians that I will be forever grateful for. I believe Nick calls this "grammeln."
Also, no bake cookies have been a regular around here lately. For this recipe, I cut the sugar in half and added slivered almonds. Also a winner. This will be going in the lunchboxes all week, or possibly all year.
Off to hair night. That's the weekly shampoo, brush, and dry ritual. Takes FOREVER.
