I’ve been enjoying these sunny fall days.
It makes me kinda sad to be getting my roses and other garden plants ready for winter, but, I guess that’s why I look forward to the coming spring.
Things have been hectic here, and yet, when I sit down to blog, I can’t think of a thing to write about!
Ever notice how hard it is to understand a little child when they talk, and yet, when they learn a swear word, there’s no mistaking it? The enunciation and volume are beyond perfect! Why is that?
Telling them that they can’t use words that you use, doesn’t usually work. At least that’s what I told my son and Dekeon’s mom. If they want their 3 year old to not drop the F bomb, then chances are they will need to stop dropping it around him. They DO listen to what’s going on around them ya know! lol
I some times wonder about myself. Case in point… the movie, "Silence of the Lambs" Very scary, great movie, and I admit I find the character of Hannibal Lecter to be very likable, interesting even. Then the other night "Con Air" was on TV. They have a character that is a serial killer on board, Garland Greene, played by Steve Buscemi, and… I like his character. Yet in real life I come from a family of ‘bad boys’ and have no attraction for real life bad guys.
I have no point, just letting my mind wander.
My older son lives in a neighborhood that has a "pet, mascot, neighborhood ambassador" that’s a wild turkey. I got to see him for the first time the other day. I didn’t have my camera, but from now on I’m taking it with me. I’ll post pics when I get them.
Well, I’m off to make cookies. It’s my first installment for the drywall guy. He’s going to stop by tonight.
OH, my younger son made me a wonderful dessert the other night, and I thought I’d share it with you.
1 Bottle of a good white wine
2 cinnamon sticks
1 vanilla bean
4 pears, halved and cored
In a saucepan pour the wine and add the cinnamon sticks, and the vanilla bean, which you have cut open and scraped the seeds into the wine, then tossed the bean in too.
(Hope that makes sense)
Poach the pears in the spiced wine. Remove the pears when poached and set aside.
Cook the remaining wine liquid, making a reduction. It should get to a syrup like consistency.
To serve, place a pear half on a plate or shallow bowl. Top with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and top with the wine/pear reduction.
This is soooo good! I hope it all makes sense, he was just told how to do it from a friend who’s a chef. If you have any questions, just holler.
