Nice to use ones own pots

No college classes this week and a holiday weekend so I felt more inclined to take a bit more time over meal preparation.  I made this mortar and pestle set a couple of years ago and find it very useful to make pesto.  I have some basil and rocket growing in the back yard and along with some parsley, pine nuts and parmesan, hey Pesto!

I've also started to put together my jewellery pieces:
My first Steampunk inspired necklace plus a heart shaped one:

I'm off over to Mud Colony now to see what everyone else has been up to, Oh and you can find me on Facebook too - Anna's Ceramics or my Group page, Anna's Aussie Ceramics.  See you later :^)

I love your steampunk necklace and I use a mortar and pestle in the kitchen quite a bit, I have a wood one and a marble one but not a ceramic one. My basil is just coming on now and I love homemade pesto, what is rocket?

Hi Linda, thank you. I have more Steampunk inspired pieces in the kiln at college so I'm looking forward to getting them in a couple of weeks time. Rocket is a salad green that has a peppery flavour. Love the smell of fresh basil :^)
