Art Pottery, Politics and Food

A very interesting auction of several American Encaustic Tiling Company (AETCo) 6' X 6" relief portrait and figural tiles (here is a similar example) on Ebay this past weekend. Realized prices were extremely respectable and realized from large (for items like this on Ebay) bidding pools. It will be interesting to see if these price levels hold. The market for quality Arts & Crafts American Art Pottery has been very strong and seems to be getting stronger throughout these last sour years. More tomorrow...I had a longer post but the computer ate it. Honestly!
How about some soothing...

Lentil and Barley Pilaf

1 medium Onion, peeled and chopped
2 celery stalks, trimmed and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp Butter
2 1/2 cups Chicken broth
1 cup water
1 cup dried lentils
1/2 cup quick Barley
pinch of Sea Salt and White Pepper

Saute onion, celery and garlic in butter in a medium saucepan...add chicken broth and water and bring to a boil.
Stir in Lentils Sea Salt and White Pepper. Cover and simmer at reduced heat for 25 minutes. Blend in quick Barley, cover and simmer an additional 10
minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Thickens as it cools. Yum!
