E is for Eggplant. One of the most amazing fruits. I made a delicious vegetarian lasagne with these "models".

Dill Pickles, D is for Dill Pickle, ABC mini challenge

D is for Dill Pickle. My favorite brand. I used to make cold pack pickles but it is hard where I live to get fresh cucumbers and dill. Plus, the last few batches I made, something went wrong...several quarts ended up spoiling, as if the vinegar or something had changed. Did everything the way I always had...oh, well. These fill the bill nicely...crisp and garlicky!
I will post 2 a day until I am caught up. The entire set of 26 "letters" will be available soon.

ABC Mini Challenge II, C is for Coffee

"Cuppa Joe"

Borrowed my friends' Harliquin Homer Laughlin cups for this one. I love the Art Deco feeling of this vintage cup & saucer.

Boy, I am way behind in posting my ABC Mini Challenge paintings! Just finished "M" but here is "B".
Blueberries are a fun mixing the dull blue/grays.
