We're working on our new Fall line. This is a preview of a new scarf we're calling the Necktie, though we're not sure the name will stick.

Joe smiling. Maggie thinks I'm posting too many pictures of Joe :)

Trying something with video. Press the play button and if it works you should see poor Joe getting a bath...

It almost looks like this street marker reads Bungalow Land, but it really says Bungalow Lane. It's in the Spanish Town neighborhood in Baton Rouge. It is kindof like Bungalow Land down there.

We've been working on some new T shirts. This is a photo of the "tag" printed on the inside:

We had Green Chard and Potato soup for supper. The close cropping of this photo belies the messiness of the kitchen.

Here's the recipe:
1 Bunch of Green Chard
3-4 Medium Potatoes (Yukon Gold are good)
1 Head Fresh Garlic
1 Qt Stock
2 cups Water
Olive Oil

Peel and cube the potatoes to 1/2"
Wash the chard, cut out the stems, and roughly chop. Keep some long thin pieces as well as some fine confetti pieces.
Roughly chop the garlic, then toss it into the hot oil. I like to saute it very lightly, to the detriment of anyone who gets too close for a while afterward (unless of course they've had the soup too).
When the garlic is done to your liking pour on the water and stock. Homemade stock is good if you've got it. Imagine Foods (terrible name, good products) makes a fabulous one called No-Chicken Stock (that contains no poor chickens). Bring to a boil.
Add potatoes and cook till almost tender
Add the chard and cook uncovered 10 minutes or so

Wah-La! Salt to taste.

Hello! I'm Michael, the other half of Supermaggie (Maggie being the first half). We're making an effort to keep up with our blog (of course, everyone says that, but we are!). We're thinking we can post cool links and also notes about what we're going to be up to in the future. For instance, we're going to be blogging more (!), and we're changing the website homepage and colors today (once I make all the edits).
Also, we're going to be making a new batch of T's over the weekend so keep your eyes peeled for inventory to change :)
More later.
