The Picture-less Post

Did you ever hear the fashion saying that if you purchase a cheap suit, but wear either an expensive tie and or shirt with it, it wont look as cheap?  The same can be said when having friends over for dinner. Main course last night was a Dominoes pizza.  Not necessarily cheap, but cheaper than cooking…

Why Doesn’t your Guacamole Turn Brown?

This question was asked of me this week. What led to this question?  As you may or may not know Southern California, where we are right now, has a great blend of American and Mexican food.  The climate here is great for growing avocados and unlike the UK you can pick them up fairly cheaply…

Favourite Things

An LA adventure

It’s been quiet on the Muddy Kitchen Floor blog. The last post was just over a month ago. Most of you know, as much as I would like it to be, Muddy Kitchen Floor is not our main job. The bill paying job, our school and nursery has been extremely busy this past month and…
