~CRAVING CALIFORNIA FOOD TODAY~ This is what Anna and I had at THE MILL in Murrieta. Above is the Bruschetta....isn't THAT AMAZING??? Below is the BLACK FORREST HAM Sandwich (does anyone know where I can get that kind of ham???) and GARLIC SMASHED POTATO SALAD (WOW....that stuff is FABULOUS) This is from another day we were at The Mill. It's pictured below.... Sourdough Garlic Cheese Bread WITH Sun dried Tomato Spread (we always had to take this home with us and then ate it in the evenings for an extra treat)

I AM SOOOO HUNGRY for the MILL. I just had to share these photos with you. THE FOOD IS AMAZING and the PRICES ARE FANTASTIC. We always ended up bringing food home (to eat later that night) and I wish we had someplace like that here!!!
I am so excited, I FINALLY finished listing all 201 new treasures on the website so if you get a chance, check it out.
NOW......get this, Bob is leaving Friday for Laughlin/Las Vegas for a Firefighter Conference. I WANT TO PAINT MY LIVING ROOM because I HATE IT. I know that is a strong word but it is so depressing to me. I will post pictures of it tonight..... why we never painted the 5/8 inch 1950's MAHOGANY Walls is because you can't get mahogany like that anymore. Plus it was part of the original house. BUT I AM SICK OF IT!!!! It looks like paneling to me and I want my house COTTAGE PRETTY!!!
OKAY....enough said......Back to work for me...
Love and Hugs, Amy

Amy, Thanks for all the delicious pictures!
You can get Black Forest Ham at any grocery deli. They really all carry's just a matter of you asking for samples of the different brands so you can decide which one you like best. I've been buying it for my hubby for years as it's the ONLY ham he will eat!! I'm sure nothing will taste the way that yummy sandwich did at the Mill, but I'll bet you can get close to it!
Happy Wednesday!!! Your site looks great!

Kisses to you

Oh wow, Amy, you are making me hungry with those pictures!

And hey, don't worry about the walls....if they make you depressed then paint over them! We painted our custom made oak cabinets and I am so glad I did! Best thing ever! We also painted over the custom made beams in our family room which was probably a "no no" but I like it lighter and's just beams!

Go for it!

PS. Pretty things in your shop!!!!!!

Amy -

I've ordered the German Black Forest ham from this company before:

Great food, wonderful service, and shipping is free.
