In the Mud with Kiki

Ok, so it isn't really mud right now, but it was a one point. Actually, a couple different points it was mud. Last week I even brought my camera to the studio to have my picture taken while I was working. Twice. I even remembered that I had it one day, and asked someone to take my picture once I started working. We both forgot. But this really is pottery that I made with my own 2 hands.

The group shot, hangin' out on the love seat.

This is the big casserole. It may not look so big to you, but trust me, when you are wrestling that clay, it is HUGE!

Next we have the little brother. It's still not very little. The glaze is a little thin on this one, but I'm ok with it.

Look, it is a little family of prep bowls. Done in manly colors, for my B-I-L. The glaze turned out a little funky because it was fired in a different kiln (yes, that does make a big difference) so I'm not sure if I'll make another set for him. I have time, his birthday isn't until August. If I try to make another set how can I be sure
they will nest so nicely?

Well, this isn't mud, but I will share what I had for dinner tonight.
Barbeque Chicken Pizza. On the grill. I finally got at least a little picture.
I made pizzas on Friday night (no, I didn't have my Solstice Party, but at least I had some friends over for pizza and beer) I was a little wiser this time, I didn't make everything at once. I did a couple small batches so we wouldn't eat too much or leave too much. So today, I grabbed a hunk of dough out of the freezer (already rolled out) and threw it on the grill then threw the toppings on. I'm not sure if it would have been less crispy if I let the dough thaw a little more, but it was still pretty tasty for a super quick dinner while HP was in class.

5 garnishes:

If we end up ruling the world, you are in charge of cooking and pottery. Love the fact they nest!! And those casseroles--wow. So you can bake in them? Or are they bake in something else and then serve in the bootiful pottery (either way, wowsa.)

And now I'm hungry. I played a game of Bookworm while you were uploading...Tall Paul was grateful for lake inquiries, as usual, they hadn't started looking yet.

Great chatting w/ya, off to find some food and then, to bed.

Those are so cool. I love the casseroles, just love them.

You made those bowls and dishes? I'm jealous.

Hi! This is my first glimpse at your blog (I found it through Noble Pig) and I loved seeing your pottery. I am jealous at your talent! And the grilled pizza - don't you love that stuff? Hubby and I do that when I get my rear in gear and make the crust. I am trying to convince my mother to try it.

SL- Yes I can bake in them. I'm looking for a simplified cassoulet recipe to make in the big one.

Cathy- Thanks, I was very excited by them!

Krysta- yep, I made them. I know, I have a hard time believing it myself.

Trisha- Thanks for stopping by! And thanks for the compliment. I make more messes than casseroles, but I was tickled with these. As for the Pizza, I have finally developed a really great, really simple recipe, and discovered that I can make enough that I can freeze some of the dough and just throw it on the grill when I want a yummy dinner or lunch. I'll post the recipe some day. I promise. (Ok, I promise to think about it & try to get around to posting it)
