Sharing a Tradition

I'm still adding new pieces to my Etsy store. I have some absolutely WONDERFUL things I raku fired this morning. I am so excited about this raku, I just LOVE the effects it adds to my pieces! There is nothing like it in the world. I am not going to pull the drawing winners until later on tonight, so keep leaving comments, it's not too late. Check back tomorrow for winner's names and hopefully pictures of the give aways. Winners will need to leave me their address at sharleen@shaterraclaystudio.com.

I'm so sorry I still can't add pictures today.

At 5:00 we were supposed to share a tradition. My family gobbles up this corn casserole dish every Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it is extra good made in August with fresh corn and tomatoes! My brothers call it "succotash" but I always thought succotash had lima beans in it? Anyway, here it is:

Baked Corn and Tomatoes

2 cups raw corn kernals
2 cups diced, seeded tomatoes
4 or 5 green onions, minced
1/3 cup minced green pepper
1/4 cup butter
salt and pepper
1 TB fresh chives, minced
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
4 or 5 slices of bacon, diced

Layer the corn, tomatoes, green onions and green pepper in a buttered casserole. Dot with the butter and sprinkle with the salt, pepper and chives. Strew the top with the bread crumbs and the diced raw bacon. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Serves 6.

Picture Icon Still Not Working

I will draw the winner of the pendant from the 14 comments I have had up until 3pm. New drawing starts now. Leave a comment! So sorry no pics. I have 25 new pieces from my raku kiln this morning. I am going to start listing them on Etsy.
And I forgot to add, I am giving 30% off my entire Etsy store all day. Please leave "Boc studio tour" in the comments of your invoice and don't pay the invoice. I will send you a revised bill thru Paypal.

What I Am Working On

Today for the open studio tour I was going to show some of what I was doing this morning. Except that my blogger isn't working. The icon to add pictures is gone. I hope that this will be fixed before the studio tour is over...or I think I will cry! Well, please leave comments anyway. I have a beautiful ceramic donut to give away at 3:00pm Eastern.
