Fairline unveils first boat showcasing its new Capri interior   

Photo

The neutral Capri scheme was chosen by the owner for the interior of the boat, because it offers an elegant, muted palette featuring soothing taupe, white and cream colourways with duck egg blue hues, accentuating the feeling of space of the Targa 48 OPEN. The new look interior makes an impact on the boat’s ambience, which is further enhanced by gloss veneers replacing fabric panels and luxurious touches, such as leather bound and stitched handrails.

In its open form, with the canvas roof retracted, the Targa 48 OPEN offers a sense of freedom that continues out onto the cockpit with its large, inviting sunpad. Free-flowing sociable areas and large panoramic windows add to the sense of light and space in the generously well-appointed saloon. The new interior adds to this sense of freedom.

Fairline’s new interiors scheme was launched to great acclaim at the London Boat Show 2015.  It features four design themes, Amalfi (mustard and teal), Capri (neutral), Hamptons (reds) and St Tropez (blues) each with its own distinctive colour palette. The colour schemes provide complete flexibility in a choice of fabric and surface finishes allowing for a wider personal expression of interior styling.

Fairline’s interior designer, Robyn Notley, adds, “The inspiration behind the four new ranges is to offer luxurious, bright, modern interiors that fully complement our range of luxury boats. Following feedback from our customers that they wanted to make bolder interior choices, the myriad of options available within each range blend perfectly together, giving Fairline owners the confidence to make stylish choices in their interiors.

“We have designed each collection to evoke the experience and sensation of four of the world’s best-loved boating destinations. Capri always holds a special place in its visitors’ hearts, with spectacular coastal scenery and the freshness of the Mediterranean breeze inspiring a collection rich in textures with a neutral colour palette.”

          Horror Headlines: Thursday February 24th, 2011   
In Real People News: 

An Oklahoma man who apparently thinks highly of himself was recently arrested while trying to sneak a chainsaw out of store by shoving it down his pants. Those things can't just turn on can they? I'm not very manly but I assume they can't but man that would be awesome if it had.

Stealing from someone and posting a picture of yourself holding the cash you stole on facebook is stupid. Posting that photo on the person's facebook page that you stole it from is crazy stupid. Or really ballsy. Mostly stupid because you'll get arrested for it for sure. But still, they must be the size of cantaloupes to pull that kind of crap.

News Bullet: 

A trailer for Danny Boyle's "Frankenstein" has made its way online and from the name I'm guessing it a retelling of the classic story but from the video I have no clue what the hell is going on. I would think you can't call a movie "Frankenstein" and then have it be about to star crossed lovers who find each other in the middle of an amusement park but what the hell do I know.

A new trailer for "Source Code", which I had no idea about but Duncan Jones made it and he made "Moon" so now I'm excited, has hit the tubes and it's your civic duty to watch it. I'm not even sure how to explain it because the description sounds fake but I think there's something about Jake Gyllenhaal trying to stop a bomb from going off, or a web site from crashing, probably the first one though.

You like the Ha-Ha yes? Good, if you said no I was going to ask you to get the hell of my lawn. But since you do here's the new trailer for "Paul" which stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a couple of comic book geeks who come across an alien during a road trip. I swear you better like the Ha-Ha.

Flesh eating acid, a killer High School Mascot and a bunch of kids stuck in a school? Sign me up folks! Here's the trailer for the new flick from "Gutterballs" director Ryan Nicholson titled "Famine". Just so we're clear I don't want those things to happen to me, I just want to see a movie with it. Don't show up to my house dressed as a Spartan looking to murder me or anything.

          Toddler-Friendly Food   
Assalam alaikum, peeps. 


Its been a whole ten (!!) days since my last post. The past two weeks have been absolutely, mind-bogglingly crazy, not least because of Baby Girl.

While the main cause of worry was (and is) her sleeping habits, her eating habits have also caused some concern. She's not always a fussy eater; but when she is, she makes sure not to eat a single thing the whole day. Except what falls on the floor. Oh yeah, floor food is the best. 

But I persevere. On her picky eating days I give her bread and butter, or Ella's Kitchen Puffits and raisins, to assuage my guilty conscience that atleast she's eating something. On the other days, if they happen to coincide with the days where I manage to cook actual food, I try new recipes. Because I really want us to have a varied, balanced diet. So what if the kitchen is an absolute mess and the sink (and the counter tops and kitchen table) are overflowing with dishes? If there is anything motherhood has taught me, it is that dirty dishes don't matter as much as full tummies and happy hearts.

And boy, were the tummies full and hearts happy with Chicken Pie and Cheesy Broccoli Bites! Not only hubby, but Baby Girl loved these as well. Baby Girl LOVED these foods! Can you sense my happiness? I found not one, but TWO fail proof recipes for my toddler that had actual vegetables in them! So, without further ado, the recipes:-

1. Chicken Pie


(This recipe was given to me by my oldest and dearest friend, Ms. Wardah Fayyaz - baking whiz and best friend extraordinaire.) 

Ingredients:

500gm readymade puff pastry block
2 onions (chopped)
2 medium capsicums (chopped)
2 carrots (chopped)
2 medium potatoes (boiled and chopped)
3 chicken breasts (cubed into 1 inch pieces)
1 cup peas
1/2 sweetcorn (I used 1 cup because I love sweetcorn; feel free to adjust according to your taste)
Spices, to taste: salt, black pepper, paprika, chilli flakes
4 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp garlic paste
2 tbsp plain flour
1/2 cup cooking oil

Method:

1) Pour oil in a large pan, and heat on medium/high flame.
2) Add garlic paste to oil. Take care to step back, it will sizzle.
3) After a few seconds of cooking the garlic paste, add the chicken cubes. Cook till all the water from the chicken evaporates and oil separates.
4) Add onions; stir fry till translucent.
5) Now add spices and soya sauce. (At this point I also added a generous dash of lemon juice and 1 cube of chicken stock. And I didn't add chilli.)
6) Add veggies and stir fry on high heat for 5 mins. (I also added mushrooms and leeks, and omitted the potatoes.)
7) Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and mix well.
8) Finish off with 1-2 cups water; cover and cook for 5 minutes. You should have a liquidy, creamy texture. Pour into a casserole dish.

Directions for covering the dish with puff pastry taken from BBC Good Food:-

Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. On a floured surface, roll the pastry to the thickness of two £1 coins. Cut a long strip as wide as the rim of the pie dish and, using a little of the egg, fix to the edge of the pie dish. Brush with egg, then lift the rest of the pastry over the pie, using the rolling pin to help. Gently press the edges with your fingers and trim with a sharp knife. Brush lightly with egg to glaze, then bake for 30 mins or until the pastry is risen and dark golden brown.

Cheesy Broccoli Bites


Ingredients:

  • 2 cup chopped – broccoli, raw
  • 2 large – egg
  • 1/2 tsp – salt
  • 1/2 cup, crumbs – panko (japanese bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 cup – parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoon – olive oil

Method:

  1. Steam 2 cups of broccoli
  2. Add broccoli, egg, salt, panko or bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese to a food processor.
  3. Blend just till chopped finely.
  4. Using 1 tablespoon at a time, form into balls.
  5. Heat oil in a skillet.  Drop balls of broccoli mixture into pan.  Flatten with a spatula and cook until both sides are crispy.

          It's Cold and Damp and I Just Want to BBQ   
It is chilly and damp in Philly.  A typical December day.  I keep looking out the back window at my Big Green Egg.  I love that thing.  I cannot tell you how many people around these parts look at my Egg with a puzzled look.  "What the...  What is that?  It looks like an alien pod or ...something."  Oh that!  That's my super awesome BBQ and smoker.  It took John several hours to assemble (he's not all that handy AND he's a perfectionist. Perfect storm).

When the Green Egg first arrived I could not really understand its power, its bravado, its general staggering magnificence.  I smacked some burgers on the grill, maybe some seafood.  Standard fare, really.  Then I accidentally got it up to 800 degrees and melted off the felt gasket.  That blew.  800 degrees prompted pizza.  A little too smoky.  Which got me thinking.  Smoky....  I pulled out my BBQ book.  I read, I studied and I became determined to tame this beast.  It's easy to get the temp up, but how to get it to a slow smolder.  Air was the answer and playing with it was my task.



I was ready.  I purchased a bone in pork shoulder.  Roughed it up and smacked it around with some salt, brown sugar and hot  pepper.  Got the Egg ready and added some soaked hickory chips and produced thick smoke.  In went the shoulder.  Two hours later, out went the charcoal.  Not a complete bust, as the shoulder eventually cooked, although it was dry and squeeky.  Know what I mean?  Some homemade BBQ sauce masked its imperfections and my choice of a brioche roll was not quite right.





After numerous tries, I got it down.  Don't give up, friends.  A promise is a cloud; the fulfillment is rain, said someone smarter than me and I am using it to suit my meaning.  I knew that if I kept at this Egg, it would yield something magical. I did not give up.  Eventually I arrived home, baby.  I used some super squishy yeasty rolls I purchased at a deli in Jersey that had little burnt onion pieces.  So delicious.  The meat was juicy and smoky and well, incredible.  The Egg did its job. It just needed some love and appreciation.  I had a Ferrari in the back yard and I was treating it like a 1985 Toyota Tercel.
          Fox News Legal Expert: SUSAN RICE COMMITTED AT LEAST 3 CRIMES (VIDEO)    
One, it’s a crime to lie about your masking request.
Two, it’s a crime for you to use your office for political purpose.
Three, it’s a crime to leak unmasked details.

She better get herself a good criminal defense attorney Gregg Jarrett says.


FOX News Legal Expert Gregg Jarrett dropped a bomb on Susan Rice when he said she likely committed three crimes. Jarrett was on with Sara Carter of Circa News when he made the claim of criminal behavior by Rice.

Gregg Jarrett: Susan Rice, whose got a lot to answer for. She is sort of the Queen of the False Narrative which is a polite way of saying “lie.” She not only lied about the Benghazi case and Bowe Bergdahl but then she hauls off and tells Judy Woodruff, “I don’t know anything about incidental collection” and then when she gets caught red-handed she says, “OK, I knew all about it, but I never asked for the unmasking on Trump Transition officials.” Well now the NSC has the goods on her and that appears to be a lie as well. So she may have actually committed three potential crimes here.



          Lady's Chocolate Chip Cookie & Cookie Butter Skillets   
Lady's Chocolate Chip Cookie and Cookie Butter Skillets - made May 26, 2017, modified from Modern Honey
I've come to believe that one of the easiest "comfort food" desserts you can serve is the chocolate chip cookie skillet. There's nothing like warm chocolate chip cookies. Served with ice cream. Baked in a cast iron skillet. Oh, and while you're at it, put some nutella to slowly melt over the warm cookie. Because....why not? Okay, yeah, you're going to have to do some massive workouts and live on rabbit food for 3 days but it's worth it. Especially this one.
Pre-bake
It's also quite versatile. If you have some non-chocolate lovers (I know, I don't understand them either), you can make the dough and right before you add the chocolate chips - which, hello, make the whole thing - separate out the plain dough and add cookie butter to that batch instead. No need to mix it into the actual cookie. I layered it into the cookie skillet for a cookie butter cookie skillet. It's hard to top a brown sugar sugar/cookie butter combination.
Post-bake
Unless, of course, you make the traditional chocolate chip cookie skillet with big milk chocolate chips, bake it, then spread a layer of nutella to melt over it. And serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. Yes, it was as good as that just sounded. Or better.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet covered with Nutella
While chocolate chip cookie skillets are easy to make, you do want to make sure you choose a chocolate chip cookie recipe that spreads. I know, that's against my usual grain of thick, chubby, chunky cookies that remain thick with very little spread. But since it's in a skillet, you want it to spread at least enough to make it to the edges of the skillet. Otherwise, you'll get a weird cookie in the middle of a skillet that looks like it didn't need to be baked in a skillet. Plus the cookies that spread tend to be more buttery and less floury, also a good thing.

The cookie butter, chocolate-chip-less version was also good. It's hard to see the cookie butter in the picture below which only means I should've used more. But it, too, was good. Next time you have a group of friends or family over for an informal meal, this is a good dessert topper for a casual gathering.
Cookie Butter skillet cookie
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup + 1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate chunks
1/3 cup cookie butter
vanilla bean ice cream
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Spray two 6-inch cast iron skillets with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a small heavy saucepan, melt brown over medium heat, stirring often, until it bubbles and milk solids turn brown. Turn off heat and add brown sugar and granulated sugar, stirring until completely blended. Cool slightly.
  3. Add egg and vanilla, stir until combined.
  4. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Stir until well combined.
  5. Pour half of the cookie batter into 1 6" skillet, adding dollops of cookie butter and covering with dough,
  6. Add milk chocolate chips to other half of the cookie batter and pour into second skillet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly golden brown and middles no longer look like raw dough. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Add vanilla bean ice cream and serve.


          Kunnskap på bok(s)   
En viktig oppgave for Fotosamlingas Venner er å gjennomgå allerede digitaliserte bilder, og komplettere informasjon om bildene. Den store fordelen med å ha et antall oppegående, spreke og kunnskapsrike medlemmer – som i tillegg har levd en stund – er at de er levende leksikon i seg selv.
Svært mange bilder i samlingen til Narvik Kommune og Museum Nord – Narvik har økt sin verdi gjennom detaljinformasjon som legges til bildene.


Andre kilder?
–Vi har mye bruk av bokserien til Per Helge Berg/Fremover om hus og gater i Narvik: Gatelangs i Narvik, forteller Harry Hjelle.
-Disse bøkene er selvsagt skrevet for sitt bruk og ut fra gitte forutsetninger, men til vårt spesielle bruk vi kunne selvsagt godt tenkt oss enda mer detaljinformasjon om enkelte gårder eller gater. De er uansett en liten skattkiste for oss som er ute etter å komplettere Narviks historie.





          Skanning i stort format   
Nylig fikk Fotosamlingas venner og Museum Nord - Narvik en A3-skanner. Giver var tidligere Kolbeinsen Foto ved Atle Kolbeinsen. Med dette kompletterer Fotosamlinga sin park av A4-skannere.
Lrs Slettjord fra Museum Nord - Narvik med den nye skanneren som blant annet kan  skanne store bilder .
Hva er så fordelen med en skanner som tar dobbelt så store bildeflater?
Eldre bilder som leveres til FV kommer gjerne som bilder innsatt i fotoalbum. Med en A3-skanner kan hele album legges inn i skanneren. Med dette kan man være sikre på at det ikke oppstår fysisk slitasje på verken bilder eller album.
I tillegg sier det seg selv at det er enklere å digitalisere bilder i format opp til A3.
Den "nye" skanneren har noen år på baken, og krever dermed litt spesialtilpasning før den er på nett.
Vi takker Atle K for gaven.

Finn Simonsen med en A4-skanner. Her vises tydelig at det kan by på problemer å digitalisere bilder som er limt fast i album.

          Internasjonalt i Fotosamlinga   


De kommer fra hver sin kant av Europa, men sitter nå sammen med resten av FV-gjenget på loftet til Museum Nord – Narvik og digitaliserer gamle bilder. Berhard fra Østerrike og Käbi fra Estland skal jobbe på Museum Nord i Narvik de nærmeste ni månedene, i et EU-program kalt European Voluntary Service. Det vil si, de skal ikke hver jobbe her eneste dag. Litt tid går med til skole og norskundervisning.

I sine hjemland arbeider Bernhard i barnehage mens Käbi studerer språk. Begge snakker meget godt engelsk. Plutselig har det blitt en viss «internasjonal» atmosfære på loftet sammen med gjenget fra Fotosamlingas Venner. At de i tillegg bidrar til å senke gjennomsnittsalderen betraktelig hører også med i bildet.

For øyeblikket sitter de to og digitaliserer såkalte visittkortbilder: Dette var bilder tatt for å vises frem i spesielle fotoalbum, noe som på mange måter fungerte som datidens Facebook.



          Årsmelding og regnskap for 2012 klart   
Da er styrets beretning klart, og regnskapet for året 2012 er ferdig revidert. Begge deler sendes som epost-vedlegg til alle betalende medlemmer. Hvis du ønsker å ha med disse i papirformat til årsmøtet, bes du skrive ut og ta med.

Bildetekst: Det kan være viktig å dokumentere dagsaktuelle hendelser.

Årsmøtet finner som tidligere informert sted på Museum Nord - Narvik, tirsdag 19. mars kl. 19.00.
Årsmøte avvikles etter fast prosedyre med gjennomgang av beretning og regnskap, samt valg.
Etter årsmøtet tar vi en liten diskusjon om dagsaktuell fotodokumentasjon, dvs. hva noen av oss kan gjøre i dag for å dokumentere dagen i dag for fremtiden.

Vel møtt.
          Referat fra årsmøte i Fotosamlingas Venner   
Årsmøte 2011, FV: Museum Nord - Narvik, onsdag 28.3 2012, kl 19-2045.
Tilstede 10 personer

Yngvar Ramstad ble valgt til ordstyrer.

Årsmelding lest opp og godkjent. Lars Slettjord kompletterte med å fortelle om antall bilder som var gjennomgått og kontrollert, samt økning av digitaliserte bilder i fotosamlinga. Mye av arbeidet er vanskelig å tallfeste, da det eksempelvis handler om å kontrollere tidligere innlagte bilder og sjekke at bildeinformasjon er korrekt. Lars konkluderte med at innsatsen til FV er uvurderlig og svært verdifull. FV utgjør en stor ressurs.
Også regnskapet ble godkjent.  (Det sendes som epostvedlegg til alle medlemmer)

Valgkomiteen foreslo gjenvalg. Valgt med akklamasjon: Leder Harald Harnang, styre: Yngvar Ramstad, Harry Hjelle og Erik Kimsaas. Revisor: Henry Norvik. Formannen fungerer som kasserer. Valgkomite: Finn Simonsen.

Årsmøte slutt.
Etter årsmøte ble det diskutert flere aktiviteter, blant annet samarbeid med Fremover, innsamling av stoff fra Facebook og generelt utlegging av bilder via Primus på Digital Museum. Også ønske om flere medlemsmøter med program kom opp, samt mer aktivt arbeid for å få inn medlemskontingent. Dette er saker styret skal ta tak i.

Etter møtet viste Harald Harnang en liten bildeserie fra en nylig avsluttet rundreise i India.

          Vet du noe om Narvik sentrum fra 1940-70?   

Har du kunnskap om forretningsbrakkene langs Kongens gata, om de tyske brakkene kalt «Belsen» nedenfor, om selve toret og rådhusområdet i perioden fra ca 1940 til ca 1970? Da er du hjertelig velkommen når Museum Nord, Narvik, i samarbeid med Fotosamlingas Venner og Sparebanken Narvik mandag 26. mars kl 1900 inviterer til åpent bildemøte på Sjømannskirka.

-Vi mangler en del viktig informasjon om dette sentrale området i vår by, og håper gjennom dette arrangementet å kunne få noe mer kunnskap, forteller konservator Lars Slettjord ved Museum Nord.
-Vi vil vise en del bilder fra dette området, ta en kopp kaffe, og så gjennomgå bilder litt grundigere og da med forhåpentligvis mange solide innspill.
Som mange vet ble store deler av Narvik sentrum bombet og brent våren 1940. Kort tid senere ble det reist brakker langs nedsiden av Kongens gate. Her kom det forretninger, dvs mange av de som var blitt brent ned tvers over gata. Også NSB, rutebilstasjonen, kiosk, og andre holdt til her.  I tillegg kom det i denne perioden også mange endringer på nordsiden av toget, der til sist Folkets Hus og litt senere Rådhuset ble reist.

-Har du kunnskap om noe av dette – eller bare er interessert i å få vite mer – så er du hjertelig velkommen til Sjømannskirka mandag kveld, sier Lars Slettjord.
Etter møtet vil Roger Bergersen informere kort om de planene som foreligger med tanke på utbygging av sentrumsområdet.

          Kenji Darvish of Golden Bomber: "That pissed me off. Why would shop employees tweet that?"   


1: Egg ★@\(^o^)/:2014/07/08(火) 08:28:36.63 ID:???0.net
There has been no end to instances of celebrities being tweeted about our photographed when seen out in the street, and Kenji Darvish has expressed his anger on his blog after experiencing a similar fate.

July 8, Darvish updated his blog: "Apologies for this late night update... I just got pissed off". Darvish did not mention the name of the restaurant, the person, and the tweets in question, but he said: "I was just eating at a restaurant a while back, and I'm not sure if that guy was a staff member, but it seems that person tweeted the events as they went on; in full detail".

"It didn't seem like anyone noticed me at all... Where were they watching me from? Scary!". "To think that the food was actually good. How should I put it, this just left me with such a bad aftertaste. Actually, it gave me a bad impression.".

Not just celebrities, but intrusion into one's privacy is generally not accepted. "Why would shop employees tweet something like that? Weren't they taught not to do such a thing? I have experience in customer service and I really don't get this. I don't think I can eat out in peace anymore. It's all so troublesome." "Stress! I'll go run for a bit."

Other Twitter incidents involving celebrities are Junichi Inamoto and Miho Tanaka's date before they got married in 2011, which turned into a huge media circus. Recently, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Ebizo Ichikawa both complained about being pictured without permission last month. Akemi Darenogare and Hachimitsu Jiro also complained about similar incidents soon after.

Letter to the editor regarding "GRAS from the ground up: Review of the Interim Pilot Program for GRAS notification" by.

Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Jun 26;:

Authors: Sewalt V, LaMarta J, Shanahan D, Gregg L, Carrillo R

Abstract
Present letter is aimed at clarifying some critical points highlighted by Hanlon et al. regarding the common knowledge element of the safety of food enzymes in support of their GRAS designation. Particularly, we outline the development of peer-reviewed, generally recognized safety evaluation methodology for microbial enzymes and its adoption by the enzyme industry, which provides the US FDA with a review framework for enzyme GRAS Notices. This approach may serve as a model to other food ingredient categories for a scientifically sound, rigorous, and transparent application of the GRAS concept.

          Salute! Beer & Sauerbraten   

“We’ll be back in 2 hours - just in time for that sauerbraten dinner you promised us!” Dad said as his long legs carried him swiftly across the front yard toward his pick-up truck. His friend Pat was waiting in the truck leisurely puffing on his pipe. They were going on an afternoon adventure to scope out a piece of “ground” as they did so often when Dad was preparing to build another house.

“That’s perfect timing! While you’re gone, Mom and I are going to do some prep work for Cheryl’s baby shower, and bottle a batch of Christmas beer,” I shouted to Dad from my back porch as he closed the truck door behind him and waved a hasty goodbye.

When I went back into the house I could see that Mom had finished washing the old brown 1-quart beer bottles. We arranged the empties on the floor in a half-circle in front of the weathered 10-gallon crock, which Pat and Dad had hoisted onto a chair for us so it would be easier to siphon every crystal clear drop from the crock into the bottles.

“You know, for two people who don’t drink beer, we certainly spend a lot of time bottling it!” Mom smiled. She was ribbing me and I knew that she also enjoyed the challenge of making home brew, because much like wine, the finished product turned out different every year.

“It’s worth all the fuss to see my beer-loving friends’ faces light up at Christmas when I hand them a bottle of pure golden, bubbly brew, made right here in my own dining room!” I replied peering down into the crock. We listened for the beer’s familiar “hiss, sizzle, gurgle,” that we had heard earlier in the week, it was quiet and still, a temporary flatness, which indicated it was ready to bottle.

We each grabbed a siphoning tube and pulled up a chair. We dipped one end of the tube into the crock, sucked on the other end of the tube to start the brew flowing through the tube and began siphoning fresh green beer into our 72 bottles.

We no sooner got started when the phone rang. I removed my siphon hose from the crock and laid it aside to answer the phone. Throughout the afternoon we had numerous calls, which meant we had to start a new tap with each interruption.

The phone rang again just as we were filling the last few bottles. “Eello! Oh hi, Cheryl. I’m so glat you called. Ows our expectant Mommy do’in?” I said into the phone.

Mom tapped me on the shoulder and whispered, “remind her that we need a final guest lissht.”

“Do ya think we should start cap’in some of these baattles?” Mom asked, pulling the bottle capper to the edge of the dining room table and through several pools of spilled beer, which had dribbled down the table leg and had splashed onto the floor.

“That’s a gooot idea, Mom, the crock is emtee.”

I glanced out the dining room window, “Oh my gaawsh! Pad and Dat are comm’n up the driveway! Is it dinnertime all ratty?”

Mom started tittering and pointed an inebriated finger at me, “I think yur tiptssy!”

We looked at each other with a wavering glance, and realized that we were both feeling the effects of the beer. Suddenly everything was funny! We couldn’t stop giggling, our faces quickly covered with tears of laughter.

Much to Dad and Pat’s surprise, they found Mom and me surrounded by a sea of beer bottles, reeking of brewski and three sheets to the wind.

“Hey, Pat, get a load of these two teetotalers - they’ve got a snoot full!” Dad cried out above the clamor, and then both men burst into laughter.

Dad and Pat were good sports about our unintentional toot. With the help of our slurred instructions, the men boiled some red potatoes and put the finishing touches on the sauerbraten, and all was well with the world.

Oktoberfest Sauerbraten

1 large arm cut chuck roast

2 medium onions, sliced

1 lemon, sliced

1 ½ cups red wine vinegar

2 ½ cup water

12 whole cloves

6 bay leaves

12 whole black peppercorns

1 tablespoon salt

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

2-4 tablespoons cooking oil

1 pint sour cream

Place roast in a large glass or plastic marinating container. Prepare marinade in a large bowl (a mixing bowl with a pour spout works good) by combining onions, lemon, vinegar, water, cloves, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt, sugar and ginger; stir well. Pour marinade over roast and cover. Marinate roast in refrigerator for 3-4 days, turning at least twice daily.

Set oven at 300°. Remove roast from marinade, reserving all remaining marinade except for the lemons, which should be discarded. Using paper towels, dry the roast thoroughly and set aside.

Pour cooking oil into a large heated skillet and brown roast on both sides. Place roast in a large baking pan or roaster, that’s been treated with cooking spray, pour marinade over roast; cover.

Bake for 3 hours, or until tender. Move roast to a serving platter, and keep it warm in the oven while sauce is being prepared. Remove and discard bay leaves, cloves and peppercorns from pan juices. Pour juice into a saucepan, bring it to a boil, and remove from the heat; stir in sour cream. Boiled red potatoes and slow-cooked green beans or steamed green cabbage make an excellent accompaniment for sauerbraten. Yield: 6 to 8 servings

Note: I'd suggest making Sauerbraten in the crock pot and serving it simply with egg noodles and steamed carrots or green beans when making it in August to celebrate National Beer Day. It's traditionally an October-fest meal, or a German Pot Roast made more during the cooler months. But who can resist washing down delicious savory sauerbraten with a cold, frosty beer? Certainly NOT Mom and me!

          Crazy Chocolate Cake   
It's National Chocolate Cake Day so whip up this wonderfully moist chocolate cake that's so rich it doesn't need frosting. Grab the kids and make it tonight. It's fun and easy to assemble with a unique no-bowl mixing technique. And it gets even wackier because the recipe calls for vinegar and no eggs. It's crazy delicious!

Crazy Chocolate Cake
No bowl required. Mix ingredients together in a 9”x 13” baking pan. No need to grease the pan. Preheat oven to 350°.

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons baking cocoa
2 cups white granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
Sift flour, cocoa, granulated sugar and baking soda into baking pan.

Make 3 wells in flour and add:
2 tablespoons vanilla
2/3 cup salad oil
4 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 cups water

Mix well with a fork. Bake for approximately 35 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar or frost as desired. Cake stays moist and fresh for several days. NO EGGS REQUIRED.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Quick Fluffy Frosting
1 cup white granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla or flavoring of choice
1 egg white

Dump all ingredients into glass or stainless mixing bowl. Add ½ cup boiling water. Start mixer and mix until the frosting will stand in peaks.

Both of these recipes can be successfully cut in half, although a half-size baking pan for the cake might be a challenge to find.

Last weekend I read that Americans love their holiday cookies and they look forward to cookies during the season more than any other treat. So I've put together a repertoire of cookie and cookie bar recipes. Most are old recipes made for us by our moms and grandmothers, cookies that have tasted heavenly to us since childhood.

I've also added a couple of runner-up recipes from the recent Favorite Holiday Recipe Contest. After personally stirring-up a batch of these sweet, tender morsels, they've officially been added to the holiday cookie list at the Briggs house as new traditions. Enjoy!

           2015 Governor’s Travel and Tourism Awards Announced   
By ND Commerce Tourism Division
Six Governor’s Travel and Tourism Awards recognizing outstanding leaders in North Dakota’s tourism industry were presented today as part of the 2015 North Dakota Travel and Tourism Conference in Minot. The awards were presented by North Dakota Department of Commerce Commissioner Al Anderson.

“North Dakota’s tourism industry is making significant contributions to our communities and state, and plays an integral role in the growth and strength of our economy,” said Gov. Jack Dalrymple. “These tourism professionals are being honored for their dedication, innovation and leadership, and exemplify the outstanding work occurring across the state to advance our tourism opportunities and successes. They are on the front lines as ambassadors for North Dakota and we are proud to honor and thank them, as well as all of our tourism partners, for their service to the industry and to our state.”

Tiffany Irving, Front-line Tourism Employee. Front Office Manager for Staybridge Suites Fargo and the Intercontinental Hotels Group 2014 “Best of the Best” Guest Service Representative, Tiffany Irving has worked to personify customer service. With glowing reviews from hotel guests after helping with reservations, billing, and other general issues, Tiffany has also earned respect from her industry peers.  Her training methods and enthusiastic attitude have helped fellow employees improve their job performance, ultimately improving Staybridge Suites Fargo’s guest survey scores. In part due to the superior service standards Tiffany oversees, the hotel earned the company’s 2014 Quality Excellence Award.

Fred Flood, Behind the Scenes Tourism Employee. As a staff member at Staybridge Suites in Fargo since 2012, Fred Flood has worked his way up from housekeeper to assisting the hotel’s chief engineer. Although fellow staff members describe him as a “jack of all trades,” handling everything from driving the shuttle, taking care of maintenance, guest luggage, housekeeping, and gardening, Fred’s top priority is ensuring he makes a difference in the experience of each guest. He believes in continually creating value for others and building relationships with Staybridge guests and co-workers.

Terry Harzinski, Travel and Tourism Industry Leader. Terry Harzinski was instrumental in establishing the Bismarck-Mandan Convention and Visitors Bureau and has worked to serve the community since 1986. He retired from his position as CEO of the CVB in 2015. His passion and dedication helped attract several national and international events to Bismarck-Mandan and in the process promoted the entire state of North Dakota. Some of the events Terry helped attract include the 1989 Women’s International Bowling Congress drawing roughly 50,000 people; the 1991 National High School Athletic Coaches Association national convention, the WBCCI Airstream Rally in 1993 and in 2000; the World Horseshoe Tournament in 2000, the World Curling Championship in 2002, and the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in 2012 and 2014. Terry truly helped the Bismarck-Mandan area become a destination for both business and leisure travel, conferences and conventions.

Unglued Craft Fest, Event of the Year. This two-day event at the Plains Art Museum in Fargo attracted 5,000 attendees to view a curated selection of the region’s top makers, crafters and artists. More than 80 vendors sold their wares against a backdrop of live local music, artisan food and local coffee roasters. Unglued inspired the community to get creative through free workshops and project offerings, the make-and-take craft lounge and an indoor chalk fest by the Art Partnership. The event was started in 2011 by a small group of friends who did sewing and other creative projects in the evenings and has proven profitable to participating artists and vendors.

Williston Area Recreation Center, Tourism Attraction of the Year. Since this state-of-the-art facility opened one year ago in March 2014, it has hosted more than 330,000 guests. While Williston resident members have been active users of the ARC, more than 78,000 non-members have also used the facility through day passes and special events. The ARC has enhanced the Williston community’s ability to provide year-round recreational activities including swim meets, basketball tournaments, community fundraising events, training sessions, and even wedding receptions. The ARC will continue to grow its offerings by hosting volleyball tournaments and track meets in 2015.  While the facility has received a lot of local attention, it has also earned broader attention being featured in print, radio, video and social media stories including in the National Recreation Parks Association magazine and website. The ARC has also earned North Dakota Recreation and Parks Association Golden Egg Award, the Williston Economic Development Award as Project of the Year, and the North Dakota Ready-Mix and Concrete Products Association Gold Award for Government Projects. 
North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department, Tourism Organization of the Year. Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015, the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department has grown to include 13 state parks and 10 recreation areas, hosting millions of visitors each year. From marinas, beaches, campsites and corrals, to hiking trails, scenic overlooks and interpretive centers, North Dakota’s parks and recreation sites are available for all and encourage an appreciation for the great outdoors. They also play an important role in the economy and recreation opportunities of nearby communities. While its responsibilities have expanded since 1965, the department continues to remain focused on conserving nature, preserving history and providing outdoor recreational activities to residents and visitors alike. Visitors often cite the cleanliness and appearance of the parks as first rate and praise the staff for their efforts, friendliness and helpfulness.
“We are proud to have such great individuals and partners across the state representing the travel industry,” said Sara Otte Coleman, director of North Dakota Tourism. “The personalized service and unique opportunities they provide are truly what sets our state apart. They are what makes North Dakota Legendary.”

Back again at Easter Road. The sunshine was there, Zemmama and Riordan entertained us with their repertoire of skill, and Yogi showed he is suffering from a touch of the Mixus when it comes to picking a decent midfield.

The glaringly obvious truth is that Yogi's first pick midfield trio of McBride, Cregg and Rankin are three Johhny Average SPL journeymen who wouldnt get a game for any of the other top six contenders. Whereas a midfield trio of Bamba, Stevenson and Murray would hold their own against anyone. Get it sorted Yogi.

          Broncos Vs Ravens   

After two weeks of ship warfare the Broncos are hitting the road to take on the formidable Ravens. The Broncos have run away with the AFC West winning seven straight games since the bye and are battling for the number two seed in the AFC. But they are going up against stiff competition in the Ravens. The Ravens are the only team on the Broncos schedule since the bye that are heading for the playoffs.

The Ravens defense has been struggling with injuries but their offense has kept them in games this year getting their record to 9-4. Luckily for the Broncos they are taking on the Ravens at the perfect moment as the Ravens are coming off two close loses, one in overtime.

Before the bye I would have said the Broncos would not win this game. But the Broncos have been the story of two teams this season. There was the new team learning about each other and the dominate force that has bonded together since the bye. If the Broncos want that number two seed and to keep momentum going a win against the Ravens is a must.

Other News
RG3 could be out for the skins this Sunday. And a round up of all the other injuries.

The Cards are going back to Ryan Lindley. Must be like picking between the nicer turd.

Jovan Belcher was laid to rest.

The Gronk could be back for the Pats

Also with Stallworth injured the Pats are going to bring back Branch.

Bounty suspensions were dropped for the players. The Ginger Hammer wasn't to pleased about it.

Gregg Williams is pointing the finger though all this at current HC Vitt over the bounty scandal. But it sounds like they are all out for themselves. Vitt of course denies the claims.

To make himself feel better Goodell is thinking about expanding the playoffs from 12 teams to 14 or 16. Why change something that ain't broken?

Greg Hardy calls Matt Bryant small! LOLs

After bringing back Edwards, Sexy Rexy says he wasn't the one being called the idiot.

Why to Watch
Two top teams fighting over a possible bye week in the playoffs. All on a bright sunny afternoon, what more could you want?

Inside Story
I would like to use this section to give big props to Luke Richesson and his team. What they have done with the Broncos this season has been exceptional. I want to bring specific attention to what they have done with Knowshon. As we know Moreno has gone from bulking up too big, to trimming down too much and dealing with all the injuries in between. But with what Luke Richesson and his team have done with Knowshon, shaping and building his body have turned him into a solid football player. These guys were a great find in the off season.

Match Ups
Both sides of the ball will be hotly contested. But I want to focus on the Ravens offense. They have some serious weapons in Ray Rice, Torrey Smith and Anquan Boldin, not to mention their decent QB in Joe Flacco.

The Broncos defense I think will be up to the task and should be able to get after the QB but I am worried more about Ray Rice and the middle of our line. If Woodyard is rested again Williams will need to step up and plug those holes.

Prediction
I don't see the Broncos dropping 30 points on the Ravens but I do think this game will be very close. 26-23 to the Broncos, going right down to the wire.

          The Luna Moth Chronicles: The Final Chapter   
Our last cocoon hatched early, despite my hopes for it to overwinter. This time, however, I was ready!

This is Clover, who is a male Luna moth. He emerged from his cocoon after being in the pupal stage for 7 weeks. We had warm weather at the time and I wonder if he emerged too early?

Sadly, Clover's wings were deformed. The lower wings were nothing but little grey stubs, and his upper wings never fully expanded. His sister, who emerged a week ago had fully developed wings. Clover had a little spell during his 4th instar where he got sick and we thought we might lose him...I wonder if that affected his wing development?

Isn't he sweet? Okay, maybe a face only a mother could love!

Clover, crawling on my son's hand. Clover had a weird "bubble" on his wing (on the right), which burst and sprayed green blood (?) on the floor. He didn't seem to be bothered by that incident and kept right on crawling.

We had to keep him indoors since the weather turned cold again. I kept him in the bathroom with the door shut, trying to keep the humidity levels higher for him. The dry heat in the house caused his sister Corvella to dry out.

Back view

Clover was with us for 6 days. The lifespan of an adult Luna moth is a week, so even with his deformities he lived a full life! Note the difference in his wide, feathery antennae from his sister, Corvella's, which were much narrower.

Front (belly) view

Clover was buried under a rock, next to Corvella, and his other caterpillar siblings.

It's hard to believe my Luna Moth Chronicles are over after three months of caring for these guys. It was an awesome experience to watch the life cycle of this gorgeous creature, from egg to adult moth. I'm saddened by the thought that they didn't get to fly off and mate to complete their life cycle.

Considering they would have never hatched from their eggs if I hadn't rescued them from the beetles I suppose they had a good life, filled with yummy sweet gum leaves and sticks to climb!

          Eggstravaganza   
Got together with my peeps at The Craft Shack last week to make alcohol ink Easter eggs.  We followed Tim Holtz's instructions to make these lovelies!














All you need are various colors of alcohol inks, alcohol ink mixatives a blending tool, alcohol ink blending felt & white plastic eggs!  You might want blending solution too just in case you want to change the color on the eggs or need a little clean up.

So simple just put the 1 or more inks & a mixative on your felt, tap, tap, tap on the egg (do half of the egg at a time), dry, add 1 or 2 of those inks that you want to stand out to the felt, swipe to show a little white on the egg then tap, tap, tap again & dry.  Voila!

          CIRCLE OF OUROBORUS – The Final Egg CD - €12.00   
For the very few ones who don’t know, Circle Of Ouroborus is a Finnish weird black-metal band formed ten years ago which has released many many records since then. With The Final Egg this Finnish enigma strikes back with another album of haunting and beautiful underwater music. This recording follows in the footsteps of their previous albums Eleven Fingers and Abrahadabra, although unlike the band's latest efforts, the music here overall comes across as a little 'brighter', with more melody than before that almost seems a bit shoegaze-like at points, especially on opener "Closing The Door." Nevertheless, although a bit relaxed, many of the melodies sound quite fitting for your typical atmospheric BM album, especially on "The Surface The Deep" and "Sleepless." This is quite the interesting method, because it still gives The Final Egg its black metal aesthetic, but with a very distinct, nuanced type of delivery. Experimental black metal, shoegaze, or whatever you'd like to call it, with The Final Egg Circle Of Ouroborus have delivered another solid effort, continuing to add to the growing trend in their country's metal underground for haunting atmospheres and unorthodox song structures. Mandatory as always! Includes a double-sided lyrics insert.

          Fruit and Nut Rye Bread   






I heart freshly baked bread. I have always been intoxicated by the smell of freshly baked bread. The whole reason I try to avoid Bourke Street Bakery and similar, when i'm feeling peckish.

The smell of this bread is especially delightful. And fills the house with a wonderfully spicy, sweet orange aroma, that is very difficult to resist indeed! I could not. As soon as it was out, steaming hot, I sliced the end off and stuffed it in my face!

I recently switched to using This Rye Flour and am absolutely in love with it. It have a mild nutty flavour, and I use it in making plain NY No Knead Bread, fruit bread like banana and pear (is this really bread? Can't we all agree to call it cake?, Rye Crackers, and also this fruit and nut bread. Rye flour, has a much denser crumb and texture, so its much more difficult to use, and to make rise. You can adjust the quantity to a 1/4 cup, but I love it like it is. It is surprisingly quite a light loaf, not as heavy as I thought it would be. Perfect for what I wanted to use it for.

You can add as many fruits, nuts and spices as you wish to this bread. I added a rough guide as to what I added to my loaf.

This makes a small loaf, my husband hates fruit loaves, so I don't bother to make them too big. If you want a larger size, I suggest to double the quantities.

Also you don't have to add the butter, but it makes for a softer crumb, delicious. Besides, butter is the food of the Gods, isn't it?

Makes 1 loaf.

1 1/2 cups plain flour
!/3 cup rye flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 heaped teaspoon dry yeast, or 1 packet
zest of 1/2 orange
2 tablespoons currents
1 tablespoon dried cranberries
4-6 medjool dates, sliced the bigger the chunks the better
handful of walnuts, I prefer not roasted for this bread
10-20 roasted unsalted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
25 grams melted butter
pinch salt
3/4 cup warm water

I use my Kitchenaid, with the dough hook attachment for this bread.

Place all of your ingredients, besides the water into the mixing bowl.  Mix for a minute to combine the ingredients first, then slowly add the water. Knead for about 6 minutes on a low speed. You may need to add a tablespoon of either water or flour at this stage depending on the flour your using.

Once the dough is ready, i leave it in the bowl, cover it and set it aside to rise for about 1-2 hours, till double or at least close to it. 1 hour is usually enough.

Turn the dough out and shape it how you like. I just plonk it into a lined loaf pan and kind of shape it into a loaf. I haven't got that much time to fuss, with a toddler at my heels! Then set that aside for about 1 hour to prove. Start preheating your oven to 200C fan forced, in the last 30 minutes.

Bake for about 35-45 minutes depending on your oven and the size of the loaf, for a small 35 minutes should be enough. You can glaze the top with egg before baking to give it a deep rich colour.

I challenge you not to eat it fresh, and steaming out of the oven this smell and tastes that good!

NB Only use this method when you know your yeast is good.


I served this fruit and nut loaf toasted with:

Stewed Apple Spread
1 whole large apple, cut into smallish cubes
1 orange juiced
vanilla to taste
Stew everything for about 15 minutes until quite soft

Fresh strawberries

Cream Cheese Cream

1-2 tablepoons cream cheese softened at room temp
dash cinnamon and vanilla extract
1 tablespoon fresh cream
pinch nutmeg

Served this then topped with coconut syrup, you can substitute with any syrup, and a sprinkle of walnuts. Hope you enjoy!
          Wholemeal Pear Pancakes   



 


Man I am loving this cooler weather. I feel like I can be myself again. I cannot even think straight in the heat, let alone, think of what to cook for my family. So we tend to eat A LOT of salads.

Anyway, grateful to have a cooler change in the air, especially the mornings! I decided to celebrate by making my little one and I some pancakes.

Now I can't just make normal pancakes. I haven't made that kind of thing for years! I wanted something a bit more wholesome, filling, and down right delicious.

This pancake works cause it is so light and fluffy, all due to separating the eggs and beating the heck out of the whites. Also adding baking powder helps to create lots of air bubbles, to lighten up the batter.

You can also keep this batter and use it the next day. In saying that though you lose all the air bubbles, therefore the fluffiness of the pancakes, they still taste great though!

Dry ingredients
1 1/2 cups wholemeal flour
1 cup whole oats
1/4 cup bran
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch salt
spices as much as you like, i used cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves

Wet ingredients
2 egg yolks
1 1 /2 cups milk
1 pear, like a packham, chopped roughly
2 teaspoons vanilla essence

2 egg whites

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl, set aside for a moment.

Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks.

Stick blend the wet ingredients, then pour that into the flour bowl, mix really well. Then gently fold the egg whites through. Use immediately, so you don't loose all the air bubbles.

Heat a pan with a little butter and fry the pancakes.

I served mine with fresh figs, pears, Greek yoghurt, maple syrup, walnuts and a light dusting of cinnamon.


I don't like pancakes that are dripping in syrup, but I do like a little. If I order it in a cafe, I always ask for it to be served on the side. But thankfully, most don't do that anymore!






          How Do You Stop Others From Feeding Your Kid?   


How to stop others from feeding your kid?....If only I knew cause this is absolute pet HATE!

Maybe if I had a kid that didn't eat, I wouldn't mind so much. But my little G eats, and when I say she eats, she eats very well. She loves her food, always asking for "more!" To the point that some people have dubbed her Oliver, cause all she says is "more, more MORE!" She would eat till she explodes! She really doesn't stop eating unless there is a far more exciting option. Balloons, other children etc.

I go out of my way to prepare, balanced and healthy meals for her. I love doing this for my whole family. I really do. It's something I get a kick out of. I love seeing G's face light up trying something new. Eating freshly made tofu and sushi or falafel and hummus, all sorts of foods and cultures. She has very rarely said no to anything except meat. She likes meat, but not a lot of it. Yes we eat a lot of vegetarian foods, which she prefers and enjoys more.

This is why I suppose it gets to me that people, family, friends and even strangers, try to give her junk food rubbish. Don't get me wrong, I want my daughter to experience all sorts of foods, even chocolate. But I would like to be the one to give her this, I can control how much she is given. Or at least PLEASE ask me if she can eat it! My biggest disappointment are friends and family. They should support me in my choice's. Choosing to feed my child so healthy most of the time is MY CHOICE. I don't need negative comments, or weird looks because I ask people not to give her this stuff. They look at her, like oh you poor thing, your mother is sooooo controlling, but this is not the case. She has most likely just enjoyed a freshly baked pear and raspberry bread at home, or a fruit and spinach smoothie, or  a softly boiled egg with soldiers, or freshly cut fruit salad with yoghurt and muesli. My kid eats really well.

They funny thing is I think I'm looking after my child by making sure she doesn't eat much junk. I've seen kids have packet chips for breakfast for God's sake! This makes me so upset and angry!!! At least give them a yoghurt if you need packet convenience. Or something similar. I realise I'm criticizing these people, the exact thing I hate people doing to me, but I feel like I need to stand up for all the mums that bother to do these things for their children. We are being made out to be the bad guys. I'm sick of going to a children's playgroups, and the only food that I see some kids have is junk! Lollies, chips, chocolates etc, it makes me sick. I need to find a group of adults that enjoy feeding their kids well, and are happy for it, and don't look at it like it is SUCH A CHORE!

This week had been full of such battles, she has been given, without hesitation, biscuits, chocolate, lollies and extra helpings of food, mostly cause she is asking for it "more, more MORE!" People think she is cute, I know she is, but this is no excuse for a nurse in a doctors surgery to offer her a snake, true story this happened a few days ago, of all places....

I am no where near perfect, she has all sorts of food. I just like to limit it a little, if she wants to try chips, she can but just a few... Or a little tiny bit of chocolate. Or the occasional gelato, if I know what its made from etc. I hope I'm helping her to already understand the joy of food. I adore food, but I think the problem with most people is there are no limits. Even for their kids. Do what you like with YOUR child, but don't hand mine a cookie, unless either of her parents say it's ok...



What do you do? Do you simply tell them please don't feed my child? Or do you turn a blind eye and let them enjoy whatever they want? within reason or coarse.




          Lentil & Spinach Sausage Rolls   






I love nothing more than baking. Well besides my family of coarse!

I also love nothing more than having either leftovers, or food to freeze for another day, when I can't be bothered to cook.

These rolls are so tasty and very filling! My family and I think they are much more filling than any meat variety I have made. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Makes 12

Ingredients

1 brown onion
1-2 garlic
2 cups dry green lentils
2-3 tomatoes, or a can of whole
2 big handfuls of baby spinach
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons beef style stock powder I always use a vegetarian one, Massel
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 sprigs vietnamese mint or coriander, roughly chopped
4 sprigs mint, roughly chopped
Salt and pepper
chilli, fresh or powder optional

3 flaky pastry sheets

beaten egg

Method
Cook lentils as per instructions. Puree the lentils and set them aside to cool completely.

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Place the onions & garlic in a food processor, and pulse until very fine. Fry this mixture in a little olive oil until it gets very little colour.

Pulse the tomatoes add to the onion, keep frying. Then add everything else except the lentils. Keep frying only until the spinach has wilted enough. Then throw all this into the lentils and mix very well. I put on gloves and mix with my hands.

Cut each pastry sheet into 4 squares. Fill with a tube of lentil mixture and roll upwards. Close the roll with a little brushed egg. Brush the tops with beaten egg and sprinkle with either sesame or poppy seeds. They seem small, but they`will puff up when baking.

Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on your oven. They will turn a lovely golden brown.

Delicious served with Tahini sauce.

          Catching Up   
It's been a little too busy for me the past two months, so I am just catching up and finally really, really enjoying slower days.  I also have a renewed commitment to make no commitments to anything but my family and home life after making a few this spring that I realized would make life busier than usual.  I guess every 5 years or so I need that reminder of why I say no-because I have enough to do right here.

I love this quote so much:

"It is ok to be happy with a simple life."

But it takes dedication to lead a simple life today-really perseverance and focus, and tons of discretion especially as mothers.  It also takes the generous use of the word 'no'.  And it takes seeking out of like-minded friends, who also enjoy the simple life-walks, strolls to the park with littles ones, good books, shared enthusiasm for family dinners, new recipes, and most of contentment in our role as home makers, mothers, and wives.  

Enough said about that.  Here are some of our highlights of the past weeks (months?).


Lent was over and this boy was so happy-and I was so proud of both Andrew and Patrick who gave us ice cream and pop respectively.  I bought some rootbeer for Patrick to enjoy a nice big glass on Easter day and Andrew had a huge bowl of his favorite ice cream. 

Easter eggs!  That book in the back called Betty Bunny Loves Chocolate Cake is hilarious and one of Janey's favorites.

Easter morning!  So exciting!  We woke the older kids up bright and early and had a big breakfast and went to Mass, where Andrew served...

...and then out to Grandma's for the Easter Egg hunt.  We had beautiful summer-like weather which is quite unusual.

Janey wants to play restaurant for lunch every day-she knocks at the "door" (in the family room) and I seat her and tell her the options and then give her a bill.  

Andrew was Rooster in our little school's annual play.  He did such a great job-so funny and really enjoyed every minute of it.


Annie's voice was incredible.  Really, it was as good as any professional Annie I've ever heard.  She was absolutely the star of the show.  I heard through the grapevine that she never took voice lessons and her parents didn't even know she could sing like that.  What a nice surprise they must have had opening night.  Listening to her gave us all chills.

Matt turned 18!  Janey was just a little excited for him. :)  One more year left of high school-we did a quick college visit to Isaac's alma mater and it went well-can't believe we are doing this all over again. He's had such a great junior year with the best teachers and really loves school.  High school flies by for sure.

It is a tradition in our school for 7th and 8th graders to go through a week called Teens High On Life where they listen to inspirational speakers and learn how to be healthy and make smart choices. It ends with a 5K that they all trained for all spring.  I love this idea and this race and watching all the kids work hard and support each other.  We had terrible weather this year but they still ran in the rain and wind.

All race I was fielding texts from Matt and Isaac who were at school and work, asking how he was doing, if he was ok (did he puke? did he cry, why does he look like he's crying in the picture-no he didn't!).  They've all ran this race and tried their hardest.  I can't help reminiscing about Andrew running cross country as a little guy and how difficult it was for him to make his legs go fast...really he just didn't get that coordination.  Nor did he understand the concept of the race, since it took about till the season was over before he started asking why everyone was always in front of him.  It is true though-the guys and girls who have to try harder sometimes develop an awesome grit and determination and don't fear the hard things in life or taking a chance on new things.  This is Andrew for sure.  
We are so proud of him!

Next big event:
Patrick made his First Holy Communion which is just one of my favorite events to celebrate (and I only have one more boo hoo!). He was so so nervous, he cried a couple times that day, which is extremely unusual of him.  Once the ceremony started I could tell he finally relaxed and within minutes of joining us in the pew was whispering to me how uncomfortable ties are and how hot he was in all these layers.  This is a kid who lives in t-shirts and shorts so I had to laugh and say, "Well now you know how Dad feels every day."


We all love him so much.  

We came home and had a great family celebration.

And for the most part that was the last big to-do in our house this spring and I breathed a sigh of relief and looked at my calendar that had white space the rest of the month and cleaned my house and caught up on laundry and went to the park.  
Happy Spring!

and

Happy Mother's Day to you all! 


          Does It Count?   

This is one of my favorite soups. It has onion and celery sauteed in Earth Balance, white beans, broth (Better Than Bouillon No Chicken), lemon and orange juices. An unusual combination for sure, but so good.



This tofu was (I think) from Better Homes and Gardens new cookbook. Can't remember exactly as I returned it to the library. The tofu was marinated in a sauce of mint and cilantro. After grilling it was amazingly juicy (can tofu be juicy?) and flavorful! I will have to get that book out again and write it down this time!


Here is the 40 clove chickpeas and broccoli from Appetite for Reduction. Good but the broccoli was overdone. The recipe calls for roasting first, then adding broth and cooking another 15 minutes. I think next time I will take the broccoli out before adding the broth. Why, yes, that is ketchup on my pasta!


Here is the new label on the Junior Mints box. As you can see, the gelatin has been removed, as a reader previously reported. How about that line "milk and egg may be present?" Guess that is just a CYA line for allergy sufferers. Does it count?

          What to Expect When Cal-Maine Foods Reports Earnings   
It's been another tough year for egg farmers, and the industry leader is no exception. Here are a few items to look for during the upcoming report.
          VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY (VIDEO)   
If you shun the sun, suffer from milk allergies, or adhere to a strict vegetarian diet, you may be at risk for vitamin D deficiency. Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to sunlight. It is also occurs naturally in a few foods -- including some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks -- and in fortified dairy and grain products.
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn't properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities. But increasingly, research is revealing the importance of vitamin D in protecting against a host of health problems.

Symptoms and Health Risks of Vitamin D Deficiency

Symptoms of bone pain and muscle weakness can mean you have a vitamin D deficiency. However, for many people, the symptoms are subtle. Yet even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks. Low blood levels of the vitamin have been associated with the following:
  • Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease
  • Cognitive impairment in older adults
  • Severe asthma in children
  • Cancer
Research suggests that vitamin D could play a role in the prevention and treatment of a number of different conditions, including type1 and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and multiple sclerosis.

Causes of Vitamin D Deficiency

Vitamin D deficiency can occur for a number of reasons:
You don't consume the recommended levels of the vitamin over time. This is likely if you follow a strict vegetarian diet, because most of the natural sources are animal-based, including fish and fish oils, egg yolks, cheese, fortified milk, and beef liver.
Your exposure to sunlight is limited. Because the body makes vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight, you may be at risk of deficiency if you are homebound, live in northern latitudes, wear long robes or head coverings for religious reasons, or have an occupation that prevents sun exposure.
You have dark skin. The pigment melanin reduces the skin's ability to make vitamin D in response to sunlight exposure. Some studies show that older adults with darker skin are at high risk of vitamin D deficiency.
Your kidneys cannot convert vitamin D to its active form. As people age their kidneys are less able to convert vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing their risk of vitamin D deficiency.
Your digestive tract cannot adequately absorb vitamin D. Certain medical problems, including Crohn's disease, cystic fibrosis, and celiac disease, can affect your intestine's ability to absorb vitamin D from the food you eat.
You are obese. Vitamin D is extracted from the blood by fat cells, altering its release into the circulation. People with a body mass index of 30 or greater often have low blood levels of vitamin D

          The Simplification of English - Stage 2, The Viking Settlers   
The first written texts of Middle English in the late 12th century show a remarkable simplification from Old English, just a century or two before. Verb and pronoun endings are reduced and simplified. Nouns lost their inflective endings (which indicate whether it was the subject or object of the verb) and relied more on prepositions and word order for meaning. Grammatical gender (nouns, adjectives and pronouns having different forms for male, female and neuter genders) was lost. And a few other simplifying changes that only a linguist could understand and appreciate. See this post by Linguistics Girl for a better explanation of these changes.

Linguists tell us that simplifications of this magnitude occur in a language only when it is learned as adults by a large enough group to influence the language spoken by the natives. It wasn't the Norman French, who were too few in number and mostly kept to themselves, who initiated this change. Rather it was the Norse from Denmark and Norway who had settled in eastern Britain in the late 8th and 9th centuries. This settlement (in contrast to previous Viking raids) was more or less peaceful. They ran businesses or farmed beside their English neighbors and often married English wives.

Because of their integration into English society, the Norse had to learn English. And adults, as you will know if you ever tried, find it difficult to learn another language fluently. Evidently they learned enough to get along and their simplified version of English gradually became the new standard across the country. Historical linguists tell us that these changes began in the northeast and gradually moved south over a period of several centuries.

A story related in Caxton's prologue to his translation of the Book of Eneydos in 1490 illustrates these changes in transition. A merchant ship was stranded in the Thames estuary by calm weather and a few of the men walked to a nearby house and asked the woman there for food. One asked for some "eggys", using the new (Norse) word. The woman didn't understand and said "Sorry I don't speak French", to which the merchant indignantly replied "Neither do I". Another merchant came to the rescue and explained that he was asking for "eyren", the old English word (singular "ey"), which the woman understood. You can read the story in Caxton's words here (page 2 starting line 25). He told the story to illustrate the predicament of English publishers in having to choose a dialect in which to print. It took over 200 years from the 14th to the 16th centuries for the word egg to become standard across England.

Norse also contributed many words to the English vocabulary. The most amazing are the pronouns they, them and their, replacing the Old English equivalents. Borrowing of pronouns is very rare and shows how significant the influence of Norse was on the core of the English language. Other core words include get, both, take, and want. Still other words are sky, skin, knife (and many other sk and kn words) and, as described above, egg. In many cases the Norse word was added, creating a synonym, rather than replacing the English word. Sometimes the adopted word took on a slightly different meaning, such as skirt (Norse) and shirt (English). Note that these words seem very English; they don't seem borrowed at all. Two reasons for this - Norse is another Germanic language so its words are more similar to English words than French or Latin words would be; and they were borrowed so long ago that they have become "Englishified" over time.

So English has two stages of people learning the language as adults and simplifying it in the process. First some people (possibly Semitic-speaking) in northern Europe learning Proto-Germanic (discussed in my previous post), then the Norse settlers in northeast England learning Old English. For them, all we native English speakers should be grateful, and those learning English as a second language even more so.


          Malapropisms, Mondegreens & Spoonerisms   
Let’s have some fun with English. This post will deal with three types of English mistakes which can be humorous.


Malapropisms are, in my opinion, the funniest. They occur when the speaker substitutes a similar sounding word for the one intended, sometimes resulting in quite a different meaning. The word malapropos means “inappropriate”. The term malapropism comes from an 18th century English play in which a character named Mrs. Malaprop frequently, and hilariously, used words that weren’t quite what she meant. Shakespeare made good use of malapropisms both to inject humor and to show a character’s ignorance. Archie Bunker in the TV show “All in the Family” was famous for his malapropisms like “a woman doctor is only good for women’s problems, like your groinocology”. Most of us have an acquaintance that practices malapropisms frequently; we have to stifle our snickers and then secretly write them down before we forget them.

Malapropisms commonly occur when the speaker is using a figurative expression that they don’t quite understand, and think that any word will do that sounds similar. An example I heard recently was “chopping at the bit”. If you have ever worked with horses, riding or driving, you will know that when a horse is anxious to get going he will chew energetically at the bit in his mouth, thus “chomping at the bit”. My daughter-in-law was telling someone a year or two ago that her daughter was starting to develop a bad habit, but she “nicked it in the butt”. She’s not a gardener.

Technical terms, especially medical, that people are unfamiliar with are often substituted with similar sounding words that sound more familiar. In my health food store I frequently have elderly gentlemen confide in me that they need something to help with their prostrate. I recently heard someone talk about his digestive track. If he had a case of diarrhea I suppose his food might speed through his digestive tract as if it was a racetrack.

Often, though, it is plain carelessness that causes the substitution. I overheard a mother of two young children telling a friend that her kids went to “vocation bible school” last week. While she might wish them to eventually go into the ministry, age 6 or 8 is a bit young for serious training in a profession. For any unfamiliar with the concept, what she meant was “Vacation Bible School” which some churches hold for a week during the summer holidays to entertain young children and teach them biblical principles.

There is a subset of malapropisms, called Eggcorns (named for the example of egg corns for acorns), where the substituted word makes sense, even if the meaning is changed, while malapropisms do not have to make sense. Most of the examples given above could fit in the eggcorn category.


Mondegreens are similar to malapropisms. They result from the mishearing (rather than misremembering or misunderstanding) of a word or phrase from a song or poem. The name comes from a line in an old Scottish poem which an American writer, Sylvia Wright, misheard as a child:
Ye highlands and ye Lowlands, Oh, where hae ye been?
They hae slain the Earl O’Moray, and laid him on the green.
What she heard in the last line was “…and Lady Mondegreen”.

Mondegreens commonly occur with phrases whose language is antiquated or of a foreign dialect, as in the founding example. Two great sources are the King James translation of the bible and old hymns. These have the advantage (for Mondegreen genesis that is) of having difficult concepts expressed with unfamiliar words but readily accessible to young children.

My aunt, who had two older sisters named Eva and Frances, thought the line of a hymn “Jesus loves even me” was “Jesus loves Eva and me”. (I’m not sure what she thought Jesus had against Frances). My older brother once thought the last line of Psalm 23 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life” meant that he would be stalked by Shirley and two other girls that he didn’t know. A classic example quoted in the Wikipedia article is a line from a Fanny Crosby hymn “Gladly the cross I’ll bear” misheard as “Gladly, the cross-eyed bear”.

Children can create mondegreens even from familiar songs and words. A good example is Olive, the mean reindeer in the song “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. You know, the one who “used to laugh and call him names”. [I don’t know who first originated this mondegreen but it's been made into a book (1997) and an animated movie (1999)].


The third type of amusing English error, Spoonerisms, is quite different from the first two. It occurs when parts of words are interchanged, sort of a verbal dyslexia. Its name comes from Rev. William Archibald Spooner of New College, Oxford, who was famous for these slips of the tongue. Apparently students would flock to his lectures hoping to experience one of these first-hand. One attributed to Spooner that is often quoted today is the question “Is it kisstomary to cuss the bride?”

Spoonerisms are not as common as malapropisms or mondegreens. The only one I know of personally (and it’s second hand) was related to my plant ecology class by Dr. Stan Rowe at U of Saskatchewan. A colleague had shared with Dr Rowe his excitement at discovering a group of large stones known in geomorphology as erratic blocks (erratic because they had been transported by glaciers far from their origin, and block because of their large size). The way it came out was “…we came over a hill and there before our eyes was a whole field of erotic blacks.”


Please share examples of any of these that you have heard, either as a comment below or directly to me in an email to sghingston@saskel.net.

          Farm Income Forecast To Drop Again   
This year will be another tight one for farmers, at least if the federal government’s predictions are correct. Farm income will sink to its lowest point since 2009, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast . The USDA expects net farm income will drop 11.5 percent to $71.5 billion this year, which would mark the third-straight year of falling income. “(Net farm income) is a bottom-line measure and it includes money available for farms to expand, to invest, or to pay down debt,” says Jim Williamson, an economist at the USDA. “What this means, it’s indicating they have a lesser ability to do that.” Farmers expect another record harvest for corn and soybeans, the country’s most important crops, on top of recent bumper harvests. That oversupply is pushing down prices, leaving farmers in the lurch. Wheat country is faring no better, with prices at ten-year lows and exports slumping, in part due to a strong dollar. Dairy, meat, poultry and egg producers can all expect

Yes, Atlanta weather can be a fickle temptress, seductively luring us into flip-flops and patios only to punish our premature spring fever with a blustering wind or a few raging snowflakes. But can you blame us for day-dreaming about... well, day-drinking? Preferably on a sunny patio, with a refreshing libation at the ready? We're hereby flinging away our scarves and socks, and swapping out the maple syrup, nutmeg and pumpkin spice for basil, grapefruit and lemongrass. We checked in with our favorite cocktail slingers to see what fresh libations we could look forward to.

          50% off dinner at Lime Juice Thai   
Original

Scout Notes: If you're anything like us (and we hope, dear reader, that you are) your mouth salivates and your ears perk up involuntarily at the mere suggestion of Thai food for lunch or dinner or (let's be honest with ourselves) snacktime. Because few things satisfy our cravings for spicy, exotic cuisine quite like a steaming pile of egg and bean sprout infused pad thai. It was with an understanding for this yearning that Karita and her husband Sam took over the quaint Lime Juice Thai Bistro, tucked away in a strip mall along a busy Alpharetta road. The space is intimate and calming—with soothing greens and sleek blacks adorning the booths and tables. And when you first step foot inside, you'll be surprised at just how comfortable you feel. But that's no accident, Sam and Karita want their customers to feel at home as they chomp Pineapple Chicken (which is served on a pineapple) and daintily sip their supremely-sweet Thai tea.

Chef Apirat hails directly from Thailand, and it's safe to say that, as an employee of a famous 5-star Thai hotel, he's a pretty big deal. And he's not just authentic–he's a perfectionist. Every dish that leaves the kitchen has passed his standards with flying colors, from the coconut soup to the pad thai, and every plate of seafood in between. This dedication to quality shows, especially in the faces of customers, happily chatting, dining on Ta-Lay-Thai (sauteed shrimp, squid, scallops, mussels and vegetable in creamy chili sauce) and grinning. We'll have what they're having.

Menu Highlights:
Pineapple Chicken, $10
Ta-Lay-Thai, $10
Hot Sea, $10
Thai Iced Tea, $3
Pad Thai, $8 (with shrimp, $9)

          Comparison of size, terminal fall velocity, and density of bighead carp, silver carp, and grass carp eggs for use in drift modeling   
Invasive Asian carp established in the United States spawn in the turbulent water of rivers, and their eggs and early larvae develop while drifting in the current. The eggs, which are believed to perish if they settle before hatching, are slightly denser than water and are held in suspension by water turbulence. It is possible to use egg drift modeling to assess the capability of a river to support the survival of Asian carp eggs. Detection of spawning and estimation of egg abundance in the drift are typically assessed by ichthyoplankton trawls. Correct sampling design and interpretation of trawl data require knowledge of the vertical distribution of eggs in the drift, which can be accomplished with particle transport models. Data that are required to populate models of egg drift and vertical distribution include physical properties of assessed rivers and information on egg size, density, and terminal fall velocity, but data on these egg characteristics have not been previously available. Physical characteristics of the eggs are presented as a function of postfertilization time. We recorded mean egg diameter and terminal fall velocity for eggs from each Asian carp species during the first 5 h of development and at approximately 12 and 22 h postfertilization. Eggs of all species reached their maximum size before 4 h. Water-hardened eggs of Silver Carp Hypophthalmichthys molitrix and Grass Carp Ctenopharyngodon idella were similarly sized in our trials, and water-hardened eggs of Bighead Carp H. nobilis were the largest. After water hardening, Silver Carp eggs sank slowest, and Bighead Carp eggs sank fastest. For a given species, smaller-diameter eggs generally had faster terminal fall velocities and higher specific gravity than larger eggs. We provide regression models of egg density and diameter for all three species, discuss usage of these data in modeling the drift and dispersion of Asian carp eggs, and discuss implications for egg sampling design.
          Inter-annual variability in apparent relative production, survival, and growth of juvenile Lost River and shortnose suckers in Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon, 2001–15   

Executive Summary

Populations of the once abundant Lost River (Deltistes luxatus) and shortnose suckers (Chasmistes brevirostris) of the Upper Klamath Basin, decreased so substantially throughout the 20th century that they were listed under the Endangered Species Act in 1988. Major landscape alterations, deterioration of water quality, and competition with and predation by exotic species are listed as primary causes of the decreases in populations. Upper Klamath Lake populations are decreasing because fish lost due to adult mortality, which is relatively low for adult Lost River suckers and variable for adult shortnose suckers, are not replaced by new young adult suckers recruiting into known adult spawning aggregations. Catch-at-age and size data indicate that most adult suckers presently in Upper Klamath Lake spawning populations were hatched around 1991. While, a lack of egg production and emigration of young fish (especially larvae) may contribute, catch-at-length and age data indicate high mortality during the first summer or winter of life may be the primary limitation to the recruitment of young adults. The causes of juvenile sucker mortality are unknown.

We compiled and analyzed catch, length, age, and species data on juvenile suckers from Upper Klamath Lake from eight prior studies conducted from 2001 to 2015 to examine annual variation in apparent production, survival, and growth of young suckers. We used a combination of qualitative assessments, general linear models, and linear regression to make inferences about annual differences in juvenile sucker dynamics. The intent of this exercise is to provide information that can be compared to annual variability in environmental conditions with the hopes of understanding what drives juvenile sucker population dynamics.

Age-0 Lost River suckers generally grew faster than age-0 shortnose suckers, but the difference in growth rates between the two species varied among years. This unsynchronized annual variation in daily growth may be an indication that environmental conditions are affecting growth rates of these species in different ways.

The combined evidence outlined in this report and in Simon and others (2012) indicates that years of relatively high age-0 sucker production occurred in the late 1990s through at least 2000, in 2006, and in 2011. Our analysis of annual age-0 sucker catch per unit effort (CPUE), which accounted for zero inflated data and annual variation in sampling gears and locations, indicated that 2006 had the greatest apparent relative production of age-0 suckers ≥ 45 mm standard length (SL) during the time period examined. Midsummer trap net effort by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) was too sparse to examine age-0 sucker CPUE from 2011 to 2013. Relatively frequent catches of age-1 suckers in 2001, 2007, and 2012 corroborated relatively high CPUE for age-0 suckers during 1999–2000, 2006, and 2011, as reported by USGS or Simon and others (2012).

There were several indications in the data that juvenile sucker survival is low from at least midsummer of the first year of life through mid-September of the second year of life. Our estimated index of relative apparent age-0 sucker late-summer survival, which accounted for zero inflated data and variations in sampling gears and locations, was higher in 2009 than in 2004. Our index of apparent age-0 sucker mortality for all other years from 2001 to 2015 was similar among years. Seventy-five percent of age-1 suckers were captured prior to July 17 each year. In 2007, the one year with substantial age-1 sucker summertime catches, the proportion of nets to capture age-1 suckers decreased from July to mid-September. Maximum annual age-2+ sucker CPUE was 0.02 fish per net, 10,000 times less than the maximum annual age-0 sucker CPUE.

Analysis of species data indicated that juvenile Lost River suckers may have greater apparent mortality than shortnose suckers. Lost River suckers made up a smaller proportion of age-0 suckers captured in July each year than would be expected, based on the abundance of adult Lost River suckers relative to shortnose suckers, and higher Lost River than shortnose sucker fecundity. The proportion of age-0 suckers captured that were Lost River suckers decreased from July to September in several years. Only 14 percent of age-1 or older juvenile suckers identified to species over the 15-year time period were Lost River suckers.


          The evolution of different maternal investment strategies in two closely related desert vertebrates   

We compared egg size phenotypes and tested several predictions from the optimal egg size (OES) and bet-hedging theories in two North American desert-dwelling sister tortoise taxa, Gopherus agassizii and G. morafkai, that inhabit different climate spaces: relatively unpredictable and more predictable climate spaces, respectively. Observed patterns in both species differed from the predictions of OES in several ways. Mean egg size increased with maternal body size in both species. Mean egg size was inversely related to clutch order in G. agassizii, a strategy more consistent with the within-generation hypothesis arising out of bet-hedging theory or a constraint in egg investment due to resource availability, and contrary to theories of density dependence, which posit that increasing hatchling competition from later season clutches should drive selection for larger eggs. We provide empirical evidence that one species, G. agassizii, employs a bet-hedging strategy that is a combination of two different bet-hedging hypotheses. Additionally, we found some evidence for G. morafkai employing a conservative bet-hedging strategy. (e.g., lack of intra- and interclutch variation in egg size relative to body size). Our novel adaptive hypothesis suggests the possibility that natural selection favors smaller offspring in late-season clutches because they experience a more benign environment or less energetically challenging environmental conditions (i.e., winter) than early clutch progeny, that emerge under harsher and more energetically challenging environmental conditions (i.e., summer). We also discuss alternative hypotheses of sexually antagonistic selection, which arise from the trade-offs of son versus daughter production that might have different optima depending on clutch order and variation in temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD) among clutches. Resolution of these hypotheses will require long-term data on fitness of sons versus daughters as a function of incubation environment, data as yet unavailable for any species with TSD.


          Demographic consequences of nest box use for Red-footed Falcons Falco vespertinus in Central Asia   

Nest box programs are frequently implemented for the conservation of cavity-nesting birds, but their effectiveness is rarely evaluated in comparison to birds not using nest boxes. In the European Palearctic, Red-footed Falcon Falco vespertinus populations are both of high conservation concern and are strongly associated with nest box programs in heavily managed landscapes. We used a 21-year monitoring dataset collected on 753 nesting attempts by Red-footed Falcons in unmanaged natural or semi-natural habitats to provide basic information on this poorly known species; to evaluate long-term demographic trends; and to evaluate response of demographic parameters of Red-footed Falcons to environmental factors including use of nest boxes. We observed significant differences among years in laying date, offspring loss, and numbers of fledglings produced, but not in egg production. Of these four parameters, offspring loss and, to a lesser extent, number of fledglings exhibited directional trends over time. Variation in laying date and in numbers of eggs were not well explained by any one model, but instead by combinations of models, each with informative terms for nest type. Nevertheless, laying in nest boxes occurred 2.10 ± 0.70 days earlier than in natural nests. In contrast, variation in both offspring loss and numbers of fledglings produced were fairly well explained by a single model including terms for nest type, nest location, and an interaction between the two parameters (65% and 81% model weights respectively), with highest offspring loss in nest boxes on forest edges. Because, for other species, earlier laying dates are associated with more fit individuals, this interaction highlighted a possible ecological trap, whereby birds using nest boxes on forest edges lay eggs earlier but suffer greater offspring loss and produce lower numbers of fledglings than do those in other nesting settings. If nest boxes increase offspring loss for Red-footed Falcons in heavily managed landscapes where populations are at greater risk, or for the many other species of rare or endangered birds supported by nest box programs, these processes could have important demographic and conservation consequences.

 PQF Maximum Sugar Bar 2-year-old APHA Grullo Overo Gelding. 2500.00. Max is a 2-year-old APHA Grullo Overo Gelding and he has EJ The Loot, Gold Crown Jule, Blue Max and Clegg Bars right on his papers. He currently stands 14.2hh at 2 years old and still has some growing to do. He is very kind and gentle and will try anything you ask of him. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations, wormers and farrier trimmings. He is not started under saddle yet as we wanted to let him grow more before we started him. We originally purchased him last summer to be our future stallion but have decided breeding is not for us hence the gelding (just gelded in May of this year). We are really in no hurry to sell him but if we can find a home that will have more time for him and work with him we are willing to let him go. We would just like to get out of him what we paid for him. (Please note these photos were just taking today. My husband is 6'1.)

 “Conspiracy theorists concentrate their time on transmuting the "base matter" of current events, official stories, propaganda and public relations into the gleaming golden truth buried within. They do this through the very right-brained activity of uncovering and inventing connections between disparate elements.
They create story-systems to understand and explain events - essentially a religious activity. For whatever reason, it’s much easier for us to deal with our internal contents by projecting them into the world around us. These outward signs inevitably become carriers of the archetypal content and psychodrama latent in the seeker.
Conspiracy theory also overcomes the strictures of literalism and the problems of simplistic thinking by experimenting with multiplicity of meaning. Ordinary events, people and signs become symbols bristling with complex, malleable, even contradictory meanings. Mystery is revived and idealized. Facts become more than the sum of their parts. Theory becomes poetry and even theology.”

          Quantifying edge effects on apple snails ( Pomacea paludosa ) and their eggs at the junction of two wetland habitat types   
Abstract
Plant community structure and the creation of ecotones from the juxtaposition of distinct habitats influence gastropod distribution, abundance and species diversity. However, the influence of edge effects associated with ecotones may be influenced by scale and sampling issues. In Florida’s Everglades, a common ecotone exists between dense sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) and less-dense wet prairie habitats dominated by lower profile sedges and grasses. Previous studies indicate that Florida apple snails (Pomacea paludosa) concentrate their eggs along ecotones and that they appear to favour sawgrass for oviposition. However, snail densities along the ecotone have not been reported and total egg production at the landscape level has not been considered. Egg-cluster densities were greater along the sawgrass ecotone; however, total egg production in wet prairie (egg density multiplied by total area) was greater than in the sawgrass ecotone. Greater egg-cluster density along the sawgrass ecotone may be a result of increased stem encounter rates by female snails. We found that snail densities were not significantly different between sawgrass ecotone and adjacent prairie habitats in the Everglades. The results of our study, combined with observations from previous reports, indicate that the importance of edge effects on apple snails depends on the spatial scale and the particular landscape being considered. Changes in plant community structure resulting from changes in hydrology caused by wetland restoration may impact recruitment of apple snails and, ultimately, those species that prey upon them.

So, I have heard the Fu Sing just reopened a few days ago. 2140 Artesia Blvd Ste #G Torrance, CA 90504 Phone number (310) 327-4071 Some comments I've read. "I remember Tin Sing, was it the 70's when i first experienced the food there, yes it's been that long lol. All i remember was Tin Sing was the best chinese food around, it was cantonese style but i think they advertised Szechuan style food as well. It was geared for the tastes of the local Japanese American population and of course the African American population, I mean the menu at Tin Sing also had ribs, now these weren't southern style ribs, they had a Chinese 5 spice on them, but they had ribs lol. But guess what, this place was always packed because they cooked great food and adapted to the flavors of the local people. Now move on like 40 years lol. Fu Sing is finally open, I've been waiting years and years and heard through the grapevine here and there about possible reopening of Tin Sing, we got flyers for Tin Sing sauces and finally a fellow yelper told me about this opening. So first, for those who don't know, this is on the SE corner of Van Ness Ave. and Artesia Blvd. It's technically N. Torrance, but it's as close to Gardena as you can be. It's between Teri's place, and Doya Doya okonomiyake restaurant. Parking is available right in front, what's not available is anywhere to eat, it's take out only. They provide a few small benches, so it might be best to call in as they do cook to order. Now on to the food, one of the few dishes that set Tin Sing from other places around was the good quality of food, plus their Cantonese style chow mein, which they used a custom thicker noodle back then, and it was such a great tasting noodle, so rich, maybe some custom made dark soy sauce. Today I ordered the BBQ Cantonese style chow mein, some vegie fried rice, asparagus chicken with black bean sauce, and Chinese broccoli beef (gai lan). Great as far as quality goes, everything was cooked to order, the beef tender and fresh tasting, the brown sauce good. The asparagus chicken, large asparagus, crisp, very tender pieces of chicken, again everything looked good quality and tasted fresh, the vegie fried rice, was good, had bits of broccoli, carrots, onion, eggs, peas, snow peas, and was the soy sauce type. The chow mien had bean sprouts, green onions and white onion I think, the sauce was good, but had a slight sweet taste which might be from the bbq pork (char siu) which was good pieces and not fatty. Overall, everything had a good taste, but the chow mein isn't the same, it's good, but it's not the old Tin Sing thick noodle chow mein with that rich tasting sauce that differentiated it from everyone else. Maybe it's pork chow mein, or beef, i'll have to try that next time to see if the flavor is richer. But todays dishes everything had maybe a slightly lighter taste, delicious though, and maybe it's because they don't use MSG lol. I'm not sure if they do or don't, but I think everything in the 70's had MSG so maybe I was tasting that? I don't know. What I do know is that it's quality food, and it beats almost everything I tried in a 5 mile radius of this place. Omg though, I was reading other reviews and man getting hungry again to try other old dishes. But check out my pics, I put a few pics of what I tried. 4 dishes was enough to feed 4 people easily, maybe order some hot sour soup as well and def should be enough. Oh and they deliver within 3 miles with 15 dollar minimum, not bad. They have a ton of lunch specials as well. Follow Dave K. 5.0 star rating 6/27/2017 Growing up in Gardena, Tin Sing was one of our family staple restaurants. After it closed, our best option was to drive all the way to LA Chinatown for Chinese food. I heard of Fu Sing from a friend who said the son of the original TS cook opened a Chinese take out. The owner said it took him two years to open this location. I ordered the House special chow mein, pakkai, egg rolls, and hung shu won ton. To my surprise the food is very similar if not the same or better than the original Tin Sing. They package the food in nice plastic containers but they don't seem as large as the traditional Chinese take out boxes. I understand they're extremely busy because of word of mouth and they only have two cooks. Many of the items run out and some are just not available each day. While I was there, the phone was constantly ringing with new orders. I do not blame the owner for all his start-up growing pains and I don't think he anticipated the huge interest in his business. I'm just happy I've found a good place for Chinese food and I can't wait to try other dishes . Eva J. 5.0 star rating 6/26/2017 this restaurant is owned by the same family that ran Tin Sing - a popular Gardena restaurant that closed many years to many fan's dismay... but they are back as Fu Sing!!! so... it is take out only. there's also sometimes a long wait as the word is getting out and spreading. until it dies down I'd order an hour before you want to eat. we had the pork foo young, chow mein, paper-wrapped chicken, and braised long beans. it was like tasting a memory the food was yummy! i think we all teared up a lil..."
          The Downside of Trying to Concieve: A Top Ten List   
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive or maintain a pregnancy within a certain period of time. For couples under the age of 35, infertility is diagnosed when they fail to conceive after 1 year of regular, unprotected sexual intercourse. In addition, couples who are able to conceive but experience repeat miscarriages may also be considered having infertility. If she is over 35 years old, it is diagnosed after 6 months of unprotected, well-timed intercourse.*

According to this definition, I've now been faced with infertility issues twice in my life. It took me and my husband a little over a year to conceive Abbey. Now we find ourselves trying for number 2, and facing similar circumstances.

I'm usually very private about this issue; I don't like to put our "private" matters out there, ya know. (I could make a joke about being a good Catholic girl, but I won't.) However, over the past few years I've been quite blessed with a very unique support group, and they've given me the voice to talk about it, and the courage to find the humor in my situation. In my humblest of opinions, humor is the best ally a girl can having when facing issues trying to conceive. I just wish I had realized that sooner! And so with that, I present to you The Downside of Trying to Conceive: A Top Ten List.

10. Listening to helpful advice about "not trying" or "just relaxing".  (As if I could ever really relax.)

9. Practically speaking in code. AF, BBT, 2WW, EWCM... you know what all of these things mean. And honestly, you wish you didn't.

8. Pregnancy symptoms mirror PMS symptoms, and your brain has the power to create symptoms all on it's own. This is truly an evil side-effect of ttc.

7. Peeing on sticks. And peeing on sticks. And peeing on sticks.

6. Charting. And Temping. And that damn thermometer beeping at you every morning.

5. Stalking the calendar. (Is it time to pee on a stick yet!?)

4. Hearing, and politely digesting with a smile on your face, such wisdom as "god's timing is perfect!" or "everything happens for a  reason!"

3. EVERYONE around you is suddenly pregnant. Even the neighbor's daughter's friend who swore she was done after number 5.

2. Sex suddenly becomes more regimented than your job.

1. Realizing you just peed on your last stick. At Midnight. And it's negative, again.

And as a bonus:

A chicken and the egg scenario... Sore boobs. If they're sore, I must be pregnant! Right? Or are they  sore because I keep pushing on them to see if they're sore? Discuss. Or, rather, let's not.

          Something for the weekend   
Flowers on our newly planted nectarine tree. 
So, here we are at the verge of the weekend! Is it a big one for you, or just another ordinary couple of days? It's going to be a busy one for our family, but the best kind of busy, filled with lots of activities that we're actually looking forward to, instead of just grocery shopping and yard work (although I'm sure that some of those will happen too). We're having a good friend over for dinner tonight, and then tomorrow will be mostly just relaxing together as a family. Sunday is of course Easter Sunday, so we're having some family over for dinner (I still haven't decided what we're having!) and giving the kids their Easter baskets and whatnot. Then some other good friends have invited our kids to come and share in their Easter egg hunt, which should be lots of fun.

I've missed blogging so much lately that now that I have been getting back into it again, I can't get it off my mind! My fingers have been itching to hit the keyboard all morning, and so I decided to put together a list of some of the things I've been looking at online lately.

  • I've dusted off my knitting needles at long last, and am working on a sweater vest/pullover for Espen. Specifically this one. (Better pictures here on Ravelry.) Of course I've been so slow about it that it won't be finished until the height of summer, but if I add an extra inch or so of length, he can still wear it when the weather cools down again. 
  • This recipe for zucchini cakes with mushroom ragout, which is what we're having for dinner tonight. We haven't made them for ages because they're a bit too spicy for the kids, but holy moly, they are tasty! And they get extra bonus points for being so quick and easy to make. 
  • It's maybe a little odd for a Mormon girl (or am I lady now?) to be such a fan of the pope, but I really, really am. He just seems like such an amazing person intent on doing as much good as he can. I loved this news story about how he opened the Sistine Chapel for the homeless. My favorite part was that he asked the homeless to pray for him, saying "I need the prayers of people like you". You must feel so broken when you are homeless, and to have the Pope say that he needs you would mean so much, don't you think? Also, how cool is it that they have installed showers for the homeless on St. Peter's square? Total fangirl. 
  • We've been a bit obsessed with a BBC series called Fake or Fortune? lately. PBS airs it sometimes, and you can also find it on Youtube if your morals are just a touch shady. It's going to sound like a total snooze fest when I describe it to you, but it's a non-fiction series that follows a journalist, an art dealer and an art historian as they investigate the authenticity and provenance of "sleeper" paintings (paintings that are thought to be by great artists, but have yet to be authenticated). And it is so crazy fascinating! The outcome of a few of the episodes has been surprising that Nick and I find ourselves talking about the episodes days later, and researching what happened after the cameras stopped rolling just so we can know. I know that having studied art history in college, I am just a little biased, but trust me when I say that it is just fantastic television. 
  • Watching this series lately has made me daydream about buying art for our home, and so I ended up browsing the "Under £30,000" section of Philip Mould's website lately (he is the art dealer in Fake of Fortune). I still couldn't afford anything, but I'm pretending that I'm going to buy this reclining nude by Paul Aysford Methuen. The art loving nerd in me seriously digs the lighting in the painting (look at the light on her left thigh - gah!) and the close cropping of the subject that is reminiscent of photography. There's also a patch on her right thigh where the artists suggests muscle tone with just a few tough brushstrokes that I think is absolutely gorgeously done. I could go on and on. What do you think?
  • Another television series that I am completely into right now is Call the Midwife. Goodness, the new series is good! I think I cry at every single episode. I was skeptical about how they were going to manage without Jenny Lee, but I find I hardly miss her at all. I do miss Chummy, though. Why did you have to go and get so wildly successful, Miranda Hart?!? Have you been watching? What do you think?
  • I got Design Mom/Gabrielle Stanley Blair's book How to live with kids: a room-by-room guide in the mail this morning, and although I haven't read it cover to cover yet, from what I have seen, I can highly recommend it. Every time I pick it up to try to skim through a few pages, I end up reading them in depth instead. Listen to this quite from the introduction: "Design isn't some froufrou gloss or shiny veneer on life, it's insisting on a solution (preferably an elegant one) and working carefully to make sure that solution works within whatever constraints you have - architectural, financial, or the fact that children live in your home." I absolutely believe that. Really good design is simply a solution that solves a problem for you, and looks good while doing it. 
OK, it's time for me to swing into action and get Gwen up from her nap, clean up the living room and start cooking dinner for our guest who will be here in 45 minutes. Have a lovely weekend!

          OSF REVIEW: "Cocoanuts" (2) Absolutely NUTS!   
Photos from the OSF production of "Cocoanuts" adapted by Mark Bedard.

It is my great privilege to review four of the eleven 2014 shows staged by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Of the seven currently running, I am reviewing:



This is our second year reviewing OSF productions. Last year we covered "A Streetcar Named Desire," "The Unfortunates" and "Two Trains Running." I do regret that I didn't start sooner. Since I was in high school drama I have had an interest in attending an OSF production. I just didn't have a real drive to see Shakespeare, I guess. My bad. I regret not coming sooner and more often. I highly recommend the wonderful experience and that YOU not put it off like I did.

This is our second review. To read the first review (and read more of this intro) click here or scroll down. Here's a couple of new facts: OSF was established in Ashland in 1935 and has the oldest full-scale Elizabethan stage (a replica of the Globe) in the Western Hemisphere. More than 125,000 patrons attended shows each year seeing and average of three shows per visit (that's more than 400,000 seats). They've won a regional Tony Award and they employ approximately 600 theater professionals.

Also you'll find more supplemental information to help you plan your own OSF visit with each post. Each play review will also offer an OSF Trip Tips section to help you better enjoy your visit as well as brief restaurant reviews.

Making Their Marx


I have NEVER seen a show I enjoyed so much. EVER.

Harpo (Brent Hinkley), Chico (John Tufts) and Groucho (Mark Bedard)
make an entrance. Photo: Jenny Graham.
"Cocoanuts:" always amusing, often funny, and at times uproariously hilarious, this adaptation of the Marx Brothers comedy, with music by Irving Berlin, is an absolute hoot. This play alone is worth a trip to Ashland. This should be on Broadway with these actors. If it were it would run for years.

The adaptation, by Mark Bedard (who also plays Groucho), is brilliantly modernized with contemporary relevance while holding true to the original. He is a comic genius who effectively channels the Marx Bros. leader. And while he,  Eduardo Placer (Zeppo),  and Brent Hinkley (Harpo) were extraordinarily exceptional, all the other players were top notch as well. However, I felt that Chico, played by John Tufts, could have been better matched, but overall the roles were ideally cast. I enjoyed the entire ensemble.

It should be noted that the cast, especially Bedard, were exceptional at ad lib and improvisation. There were several times that Bedard took the show off track to do an improv shtick usually involving an audience member and ad libbed puns off the top of his head. In many regards this was a very live performance and reminiscent of how Tim Conway would surprise the cast of The Carol Burnett Show and how even though you could tell he had thrown them, they were able to pick up and carry on with their own ad lib. In this particular showing Superman (a toddler in costume) even made an impromptu appearance, and they "flew" with it!

Detective Hennessey (David Kelly, center) has much to sing about at the
wedding rehearsal dinner. That's Mrs. Potter (K.T. Vogt, far right).
 Photo: Jenny Graham.
As mentioned, Bedard was simply amazing, as was the silent Hinkley, but two amazing actors exceeded their performance. K.T. Vogt as Mrs. Potter and David Kelly as Detective Hennessey were so stellar they were out of this universe. Not only were they extremely good sports, they threw themselves into their roles. Each had great comic timing and embodied their characters bodily, vocally, and facially. I absolutely loved Vogt's performance and she sang excellently, as well.

However, it was Kelly who truly stole the show for me. What appears, at first, to be a bit role, turns into a show stopping performance. Not only does he display perfect comic timing with a rubber face to boot, he has striking vocal chops. His was a most surprising and delightful performance.

Again, the entire ensemble was great, but I did want to mention the best voice of all was Jennie Greenberry. Whoa! And her duet "Always" with Eduardo Placer in the Zeppo role of Robert Jamison was the vocal highlight of the production. Placer, I could tell, is a musical theater triple threat master.

Making a Scene

The production values were, in every aspect, exceptional. Overall, the singing, dancing and acting were extraordinary and credit is due director David Ivers for delivering a constantly moving and visually interesting show. The choreography by Jaclyn Miller  was superb and fun. Music direction by Gregg Coffin, scenic design (colorful and effective) by Richard L. Hay, costumes (very colorful as well) by Meg Neville, lighting (quite lovely and complex) by Marcus Doshi, sound, video, etc.--all stunning. The band, too, led by Darcy Danielson, was superb. Everything about the show was a delight.

It is unfortunate that I cannot find listed the person responsible for the video mapping on the set. That was a jaw-dropping surprise and so well done.

Robert Jamison (Eduardo Placer, center) and his staff (Katie Bradley,
Miles Fletcher, Erin O'Connor) review the situation. Photo: Jenny Graham.
It should be noted that the show, with original music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, does have a story line (book by George S. Kaufman) and basic musical theater themes, but it is relatively unimportant. It is the slapstick, shtick, gags and improv from an extraordinary cast--as well as the beautiful design and direction--that make this show a spell-binding spectacle.

Colorful, interesting, amusing Broadway-hit style theater, and right here in the PNW! I URGE you to get your tickets ASAP. They do sell out and in 2013 OSF had an 87% capacity crowd over their eight month season.

OSF Trip Tip


The Lithia River. Photo: Gregory E. Zschomler.
Another Ashland delight is Lithia Park directly to the northwest of the OSF grounds. It is a beautiful 93 acre green way park running along both sides of the Ashland Creek flowing out of the local hillside. Walking paths, picnic grounds, ponds, wading areas, grassy lawns, tennis courts, gazebos and all kinds of places to get away and relax are just some of the features that make this city park one of the best I have been in.

Buskers are also part of the flair of this artsy community, and they can be found playing cello, sax, didgeridoo, guitar, congas or any other variety of instrument along the parks paths. This is not as annoying as it may imply because there is plenty of space to find a quiet area if you wish--especially if you are willing to walk to the upper parts of the nature area.

There is also a variety of restaurants along the lower part of the creek where it flows out of the park and into the city along a river walk dining area not unlike the ones found in San Antonio and Oklahoma City (though on a smaller scale). Riverside dining is delightful this time of year before it gets to muggy and buggy.

However, these establishments can be pricey due to their ambiance and convenience to OSF. One can easily pay $15 to $20 average (or more) for a simple meal, but it need not be so. One great place to eat  along the creek is Louie's, known for a wide variety of fairly price fare. The indoor ambiance is decidedly turn-of-the century western featuring a hardwood long bar and ceiling beams. Jazz and light funk music provides the background and the outside eating area is shaded and inspiring.

In a business where establishments come and go with regularity, Louie's has been open for twelve years. Likely because the wait staff is polite and on the ball and the main entrees [we had] were of good taste and well priced. I had a vegetarian black bean burger and Ruth had grilled salmon with a Caesar salad. Both were delicious, but the fries were nothing special (even though they offer a variety of toppings, these low quality fries cannot be saved). I should have opted for their in-house made kettle chips. Click on their link for the menu.

Though Louie's offers a delightful array of desserts I wanted to enjoyed an iced mocha  and Ruth wanted a white hot chocolate (it was 80 degrees out, but she's like that), so we strolled down a block to Mix a hipster espresso bar and bakery. Mix serves Stumptown coffee concoctions (why they don't use a local micro roast I don't know), teas, Italian sodas, wine, beer and "light" cocktails and in-house made baked goods. Ruth found their lemon bars delectable, but wasn't impressed with their steamer. I loved my mocha, though would have preferred a different bean.

          Margarita Shrimp Appetizer   

Ingredients: 
Shrimp & Marinade:
  • 32 large, frozen shrimp, peeled & de-veined
  • zest of one lime
  • juice of two limes
  • 1 Tablespoon tequila
  • 1/2 Tablespoon granulated sugar
Sauce:
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 large canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce (seeded & chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce (from the can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
Remaining Ingredients:
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin 2-inch strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into thin 2-inch strips
  • 1 box Puff Pastry
  • 1 large egg mixed with 1 Tablespoon water
  • 32 cilantro leaves (picked off of their stems)

Directions:
  1. Place shrimp and marinade ingredients in large zip bag, and let defrost in refrigerator overnight.
     
  2. Mix sauce ingredients; transfer to a plastic, covered container and refrigerate until ready to use.
     
  3. Prepare appetizers: On a lightly floured surface, unfold one sheet of Puff Pastry and roll out to eliminate fold marks and to get a nice, even square. With a sharp knife, cut down the center both vertically and horizontally to create four equal squares. Then cut each square both vertically and horizontally to create four small squares. You should be able to create 16 small squares from each sheet of Puff Pastry.
     
  4. Drain thawed shrimp and pull off tails.
     
  5. Remove a small square to a cutting board work surface. Place one piece of red bell pepper and one piece of green bell pepper diagonally onto the square. Make sure that a little green is peeking out of one side and a little red is peeking out of the other side. Lay one shrimp on top of the peppers. Fold Puff Pastry corner to corner over the peppers and shrimp. Use a little water to stick the corners together and use a fork to seal the corners completely. Wrap the corner up and over the top of the appetizer (you won’t see the fork marks at all when you do this). Seal again with a tiny amount of water, if necessary. Place appetizer on parchment-lined (or greased) baking sheet. Repeat with remaining squares of Puff Pastry, shrimp and peppers. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake.
     
  6. When ready to serve, take off plastic wrap and brush each appetizer with egg wash. Bake in preheated 400 degree F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
     
  7. To serve, move appetizers to a platter. Scoop southwestern sauce into a zip baggie. Snip a small piece off of the corner and drizzle onto each Puff Pastry bite. Place a cilantro leaf onto the top of each appetizer; serve immediately.


Note:Makes 32 appetizers.

          Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee   

Ingredients: 
  • 4 cups organic heavy cream
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • ½ cup plus 1 Tbsp. organic cane sugar
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • Extra granulated sugar for topping (1-2 Tbsp per ramekin)

Directions:
  1. Set Eight (6 ounce) ramekins in a baking pan (or two). Have hot water ready to go for the water bath when it is time to bake the custards.
     
  2. In a medium sauce pan pour in all of the heavy cream. Split the vanilla beans and scrape out the seeds into the cream. Whisk to disperse the seeds. Add the beans and set the heat to medium. Heat until steaming, being careful not to let it boil. Once hot, cover and let steep for 20 minutes.
     
  3. Preheat oven to 325 deg F.
     
  4. In a separate bowl combine the egg yolks, sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Mix well until thick and pale and when you lift the beater a ribbon of mixture pours back into the bowl. When the cream has steeped for 20 minutes, strain it into another bowl or large mixing cup. Rinse and reserve the vanilla beans for another use. Start to whisk the eggs slowly and add the warmed cream mixture a little at a time to temper the eggs, warming them up being careful not to scramble them. Keep the cream pouring in a thin stream as you whisk, being careful not to incorporate too many bubbles or cause the mixture to foam up. You can strain again at this point to make sure none of the egg scrambled during the tempering.
     
  5. Divide the mixture amongst the ramekins in the baking pans. Pour hot water into the pan, making sure it reaches to about halfway up the ramekins. The water needs to be hot to ensure even cooking.
     
  6. Place pans carefully in the oven, making sure no water splashes into the custards. Bake for 30-35 minutes. The custards will set on top but still be a little loose, they will set fully once cooled. Remove from the oven and remove the ramekins from the water bath to a cooling rack to cool completely. Chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
     
  7. When ready to serve, bring the custards to room temperature. Spoon 1-2 tbsp granulated sugar over the top (you don’t want too much, but you don’t want too little either). Heat with a blowtorch until the sugar starts to bubble and darken, moving the flame around so no one spot gets too heated up and burns. Make one pass around each ramekin and then repeat to make sure all the sugar topping is caramelized. Serve immediately.


Note: Serves 8.

          Angry Birds Birthday Party   

The invite:

(Invitation made by Mr. T, based on one I found on pinterest.)

After having his heart set on a Cars 2 party...Lil D saw an angry birds gift bag at Target and decided he had to have an Angry Birds party...so birds it was!

Thanks to Pinterest...I found LOTS of ideas...lots!
I even started a board dedicated to Angry Birds

For the Games:

Pin the beak on the angry bird

I free handed each part...then glued it all together. Lil D over saw the look of the bird very carefully. I found the black bird sleep mask at Michaels.


"Bowling for Pigs"
(as Lil D called it)

I used pineapple cans (then added the pineapple to my morning green smoothies for the next week). The balls I bought from Toys R us.

Find the hidden golden eggs.

I bought a couple of packs of gold eggs from the party store (aren't I lucky it's Easter time) and filled them with Jelly beans and we had a little "golden egg hunt".

For party favors I made up these cute pig bags.
Mr. T put the faces together in Illustrator and then I pasted them on.
We filled them with a few angry bird items we found.

(the bag idea came from this blog.)

Dessert:

I was actually excited about making angry bird cupcakes. I have seen them allover the blogs and I think that they are just so cute. I was pretty proud of how mine turned out. I'm going to do a separate post on what I used to make up each face in the next day or so.


Decorations:

I saw this super cute banner on Pinterest and had to have it.
Mr. T made the circles with the letters, again in Illustrator.

(font from dafont.com Feast of Flesh)

Lil D painted each of the characters in Angry Birds for some additional decor.


I printed the balloon faces from this site.



The kids had a lot of fun...I was super happy with how everything turned out.
I was even happier that the weather was nice so we could play all the games outside!
Thank you Angry Birds for giving me such a fun party theme!

...but today JibJab launched its latest video called "What We Call The News" – it's a parody of the media and the crazy things they now call 'news' (Britney Spears, fingers in food, etc.).

 

According to my step-son Joey - who works there - it'll be on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight…and JibJab founders Gregg and Evan are actually getting to meet President Bush today. That would be interesting...

          "The debugger is not properly installed"   

I too have been a victim of this dreaded problem, likely caused by installing and uninstalling various beta versions of .NET 2.0 frameworks and tools. A great post by Gregg Miskelly (a dev on the VS debugger team) offered tons of promising looking tips, none of which worked. (note: Does anyone know how to interpret the output of DebuggerDiagnostics.exe?).

Of course, Setup - removing, repairing, or reinstalling - all failed. Finally, I just deleted all the files in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VS7Debug (stop the Machine Debug Service first), copied fresh ones from my MSDN DVD, and restarted the service. Bingo.

 


          What the Heck is a Hoecake, Anyway?   
Ah, the humble, oh-so-yummy hoecake. It's just a part of my Southern heritage, so the word rolls off my tongue easily, but it's drawn some pretty funny looks quite a few times for me as well. So, since it is Thanksgiving Eve, I thought there was no better time to explain one of my favorite holiday traditions.

A Little Hoecake History...

It's isn't so much of a cake as a bread really. This most humble of breads goes by many names: Johnny cake, Shawnee cake, ash cakes and even corn pone...but it will forever be a hoecake to me. Hoecakes have a long heritage in the South. According to one source, they were called johnny cakes in South Carolina as early as 1739, but the word hoecake first showed up around 1745.  I've read loads of different stories and tales about the origins of the hoecake, but nothing seems to pin down exactly where they came from. Suffice it to say, Native Americans had a long tradition of using corn and slaves carried on that tradition and are usually credited with making these Southern treasures.

So, what the heck is a hoecake, anyway?

It's different the world over now, but the traditional Southern hoecake is basically a cornbread pancake. These yummy little boogers get their name from the method used to cook them. Shovels and other farming tools were regularly used for cooking throughout the South in the 1700's, and one such utensil was the garden hoe. The large, flat spade on the hoe made it perfect for using as a griddle. Now that's ingenuity, people!  Don't tell me necessity isn't the mother of invention! Slaves would make a batch of corn mash (at it's simplest, ground corn meal mixed with hot water or milk, then fried in some sort of fat. I mean, it is a Southern thing, remember?) and then cook them on the blade of a hoe over an open fire. If you were super lucky, they might have even been served with a side of honey or maple syrup. Yum!

Nowadays, the recipe is a tad more involved (and the cooking surface is much improved) but the tradition is still one of my favorites. My sister loves herself a hoecake, and whoever makes the dressing always has to save one for her...if she isn't on hand to snatch one, that is! I remember listening to my grandmother talking about her recipe while I helped with preparations. We never had an educational discussion about why they were hoecakes. They were simply hoecakes and part of our Thanksgiving dressing recipe.

I think I was in 2nd grade before I learned why they had such a name. Mrs. Risher was awesome, and I spent a lot of time just talking to her at recess...yeah, I was that kid. It was Mrs. Risher that ended up explaining what a hoecake was during a class discussion/coloring worksheet session about blessings we were thankful for at Thanksgiving. (That was back around 1988. You know, when you could still talk about being thankful for blessings in school.) She had asked the class to raise our hands if we wanted to share a family tradition and I volunteered hoecake dressing. Yep, I was that kid too...always thankful for food.

Anyway, ever since then I was in love with anything about the past, so I cherished the fact my grandmother's recipe was centuries old...kind of. Who knew a little thing like a hoecake could hold so much history! So, now you know what a hoecake is and how it came to be. I guess you want the recipe to try your own, right? OK!

The Recipe

Now, I have to warn you of something: this recipe is like a lot of my grandmother's recipes. She doesn't measure. Ever. I don't think I've ever seen a measuring cup in her kitchen. She is an on-the-fly, just-gonna-eye-it kind of gal so I'm sorry in advance for the vague directions. This is as close as I could get after making it right along with her and writing things down every 5 to 10 seconds.

You're welcome.

Ingredients:
1 cup self-rising corn meal  (*corn meal + a sprinkle of baking powder)
1 1/4 cup self rising flour   (*I used the same amount of Pamela's GF Baking and Pancake Mix)
1 egg
8 TBsp butter, melted (1 stick)
about 3 cups chicken broth (you may or may not use it all)

*Special note! Follow the starred suggestions for gluten free hoecakes, like me!

Directions:
-Get yourself a skillet or griddle and heat it to medium or medium high.
-I spray my pan with cooking spray, but you can go all Southern Traditional and use butter.
-Whisk your corn meal and flour together, then add your egg and butter and mix until combined.
- Begin to add your chicken broth, stirring until combined. Add as much as you need to make a batter the consistency of thick pancake batter. It shouldn't be too runny.
-Use a medium spoon (I use a 1/4 measuring cup for larger ones, a tablespoon for smaller ones) and drop small to medium puddles of batter into your hot pan. Brown, then flip when you start to see bubbles. This is basically when you cook them just like regular pancakes.
-ENJOY! These are great with just a pat of butter, or you could go old school and eat them drizzled with honey or maple syrup.

Our Thanksgiving from 2010! These pictures were better than 2011, haha!
Thanks for listening to my ramblings, y'all. All this aside, make sure to take time tomorrow between the gravy and the cranberry sauce to be thankful for the fact you have both those things and more. I am so very thankful to be blessed with family and friends I adore, a roof over my head, a caring husband with a wonderful career, and food on our table...and much much more. I'm thankful you decided to share a moment here with me and I wish a Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you! God Bless!





          A Lesson from a Carrot, an Egg, and a Cup of Coffee   
     I was in search of some quotes last night and remembered Hey! I follow The Twice Remembered Cottage! A beautiful blog full of inspiration, motivation, and...quotes! I was having fun reading through posts when one in particular caught my eye. 
     Now, I have to explain something. I feel like this year is a time of change and metamorphosis for me for some reason, and I have been antsy, almost tortured, by the fact that I don't let my creativity out to play enough. I know I have a whole galaxy of creative... oomph inside me, and I could be doing more, but fear (among other things) stops me. I like to think I'm strong, but sometimes (and I know we all do this at some point) I just want to throw up my hands, throw in the towel, and give up. I'm not quite there yet, but I've been there many times. Right now, I am just...I don't know. I think the universe is working around me and I just don't know where it's taking me right now. I feel fragile right now and in need of some motivation and inspiration to propel my creation. 
     That's where this post from The Twice Remembered Cottage comes in. I truly believe the universe puts things in front of me when I need it, and this is one of those things. This story is so simple, but it's essence is wonderful. Well here, let it speak for itself.

Carrot, Egg, and Coffee


A carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee...You will never look at a 
cup of coffee the same way again.
     A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.
     Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil, without saying a word.
     In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.

    Turning to her daughter, she asks, "Tell me what you see."
    "Carrots, eggs, and coffee," she replied.
     Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.
Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"
     Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.
     "Which are you?" she asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?"
     Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength?
     Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a break-up, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?
     Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavour. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is the darkest and trials are their greatest, do you elevate yourself to another level? How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
     May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.
     The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
     When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.


     Isn't that beautiful? There are so many things in there that I need to be reminded of and retaught daily. I have been, and probably continue to be, all three from time to time. What this little story was put in my path to tell me was that I should strive to be the coffee. Thank goodness I will never see these three objects in the same way again. From my heart, I repeat these beautiful words: May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong,enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy. And, may we all be coffee.


          Weight Watchers & Homemade Goodness...   
imagesource.com
     January and 2011 has started out pretty good around here, and that makes me feel...well, awesome! The hubs and I are doing well with our renewed commitment to healthy and long lasting weight loss. Ok, back up a second...I guess I should mention my Christmas gift! All I could think of when Rob asked me what I might want for Christmas was the new kit from Weight Watchers.
     This was more difficult than it sounds. Neither of us are members, nor do we have the money to join. (Yeah, yeah. We'd love to, but the whole pay-your-bills thing was more important.) Anywho...we have a few friends at work that are members that we were talking with and were totally willing to pick up a kit for us. Of course, we never got around to coordinating it all. So, I told my hubby all I really wanted was the new PointsPlus kit. I even looked up a local store, but I figured we'd either have to go to a meeting, or have a member get it for us. Those of you who know me know one thing...I don't do meetings. It's the whole public speaking/ fear of groups thing, and frankly, it's a huge problem I'll talk about at some point. Just not now... So Christmas came and I get the most beautiful card from my hubby promising to commit to being healthy and growing old together. And the new Weight Watchers PointsPlus Kit!

     We officially started our journey on New Year's Day, and I have to say it's great! It was easy the first time, but I tended to crave things. This time around, I have to remind myself to eat! I think my favorite part if that fruit is now "free". I'm much more likely to reach for a banana or grapes as a snack now instead of a granola bar. The wonderful thing is, this new program helps me to manage my protein to carbs ratio and I feel so much better! The first week's weigh in was January 8th and I'd lost nearly 3 pounds, and Rob lost 7.2 pounds. Needless to say, we are two pretty happy campers.
     Because it's easier, and more affordable, to eat at home, I've been cooking even more, so I've been a recipe hound. Also, I'm a sucker for homemade anything! Well, I found this recipe posted on Weight Watcher's Facebook page and stopped cold.
     I love chicken pot pie. No, seriously... I LOVE it. Alas, most all of them are so loaded with fat and calories that they are a huge no no. I was skeptical...Weight Watchers or not, is a light pot pie recipe worth the trouble? Well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is! I was so excited, I decided to document making it, so get your napkin, it's time for tempting to begin! Here's the recipe link, but I'll list it here for you too. Complete with my advice of course!
The result...I can't tell you how happy I am. That's one more photogenic pot pie!
Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
from Weight Watchers
Cooking Spray (I like Pam)
1 tsp butter
1 small onion chopped
2 cups mushrooms, sliced (I cut this...not too big on mushrooms)
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
2 cups frozen mixed veggies
1 cup chicken broth (I like Swanson's)
3 cups roasted chicken, chopped (again, I used Swanson's White Meat canned chicken)
2 TBsp all purpose flour
1/2 cup fat free evaporated milk, divided
4 reduced fat crescent rolls (8 come in a can, I used 6...more on this later)

  • Preheat your oven to 375° and find a 9 to 10" pie plate. The recipe calls for a 10" but I used a 9" and it came out just find. Spray the pie plate with your cooking spray and set it aside.
  • In a large sauce pot, melt your butter over medium heat then add your onion and mushrooms. Sauté  for about 5 minutes, or until tender.
  • Stir in your spices, veggies, broth, and chicken. Cover and simmer over medium heat for about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup evaporated milk and your 2 TBsp flour in a small bowl. Pour into your sauce pot and mix over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly. ( about 2 minutes)
  • Stir in remaining evaporated milk and cook to slightly thickened. (2 or 3 minutes more)
  • Remove from heat and pour into your prepared pie plate.
  • Unroll the crescent rolls and arrange on top (I put four around the edge, corners touching, then covered the hole with two more. That makes six.)
  • Brush top lightly with a small amount of egg white. (I used a teaspoon or so of Egg Beaters)
  • Bake in your preheated oven until the crescents are golden brown, and filling is bubbly. Enjoy!

     This recipe makes six servings, and they are huge. Huge! Seriously, it's not a skimpy portion at all, and it is totally worth the Points! Just to put it in perspective...my favorite store bought pie is something like 18 Points...for half the small pie. It's a measly amount of food for the Points, believe me. I get 29 daily Points total. This recipe is 6 Points per serving as they posted it. Adding the two extra crescent squares makes each serving 8 Points, according to some of the comments on their website. Yeah, I was super excited about that...Chicken Pot Pie is my favorite comfort food! I must say, I had one happy hubby on my hands as well, which is always a bonus.
     As you can tell, I love this recipe and I will definitely be making it regularly. I can't wait to try different takes on it, and play around with it a little. I think this would be amazing as a beef dish...I'll let you know when that happens! I'd love to know if you take this recipe for a test drive, too! I'm all about sharing a good thing! For now though, I need to put the leftovers away....in the fridge.
    
          Comment on Fifteen things I’ve learned raising quail by Toon   
I like your 15 issues list, but my experience with (Japanese) quail is pretty different. ( I only have them for 9 months now.) Some thoughts: 1) my quail are really really quiet: I have 1 mail and 3 females: only the mail 'tsjirps' and it' s not loud at all. 2) I have them in an aviary of 10 square meters (I guess that's about 100 square feet) 3) They live outdoors with a rainproof roof and a little indoor area that 's darker 4) I' ve never had to clean an egg 5) no need for egg scissors : I boil them and they peel great 8-9) I didn't need an incubator: 1 female got broody half July... and succesfully hatched 7 eggs 14) I don 't give them extra light.. I think that a restperiod benefits their health..and is more naturally Greetings from Flanders - Belgium -Europe English is not my mothertongue.. sorry for my language :-)

          Snekring in progress   


Septemberblomster. Det er travelt nå etter ferien. Masse på jobben, og i tillegg er det sånn at man må rekke en haug praktiske ting før kulda og mørket setter inn. Jeg er seriøs snekker om dagen og setter opp nytt uthus. Det er så kult å klare det! Bygget er reist, døra skal på i dag, og etterhvert er det takstein som skal på plass. Det blir kanskje litt vanskelig... Og innimellom regnskurene må det jo males også. Så kan alt rot flytte inn, og jeg kan lage nye blomsterbed rundt. Hvis uthuset blir fint kan jeg jo slenge et bilde på bloggen ;-)


SOLIG SEPTEMBER!



          Høstens trøst   
Jeg tror det er på sin plass å finne planter og stauder som blomstrer sent. Etter den mest intense sommerblomstringen dabber det noe av her og der. Riddersporer tar stor plass og ser veldig bra ur helt til de er avblomstra og brune. Jeg har fjerna masse stilker nå og det blir sånne tomme plasser i beda. Her må jeg være lur å finne planter som kan fylle inn og blomstre litt senere.



Høstanemone skal få prøve seg på den jobben. Jeg har hatt den før uten den helt store  suksessen, men prøver altså igjen. Jeg tror at cluet er å plante den ut tidlig slik at røttene får etablert seg godt. Så disse bør jeg kanskje grave opp igjen og ha i kjelleren i vinter.



 Tusen takk til den anonyme som gav meg svar på forrige innlegg sitt spørsmål. I ampelen vokser en frøsådd rosevindel, eller blodbeger som jeg også lærte at den kalles. En utfordring som jeg tar til våren!



BLOMSTERKLEM!



          Lilla vitaminer   

I går gjorde jeg et  kupp hos Home and Cottage. Tror det er yndlingsbutikken min for tida. Fargene og materialene er så fine. Love it! Flaks for meg så fant jeg en kode på bloggen deres som ga meg 25% rabatt, og da klinka jeg til og kjøpte to store lilla tepper. Et til stua og et til til spisestua. Så blir det en slags helhet i stuene da!



Det ble en smule mørkere enn vanlig, men gud så praktisk å ikke ha lyst teppe da. Lupinene er blitt luka og satt inn. De er i ferd med å spre seg i hagen litt mer enn jeg setter pris på.



Små rom, men høyt under taket! Det kunne vært undertittelen på bloggen min, egentlig :o) for sånn er det jo her hos oss.




Her er helgens gjøremål. En vegg i stua skal tapetseres, har fått melding om at tapeten har kommet. Jeg har revet ned en lengde som syns bak blomstene her. Får dra ned resten etterpå. Går fort å lime opp tapet heldigvis.


GOD FREDAG!

          Eggceptional Breakfast for Two   


CIMG3540


About three weeks ago I went to my front door…….the one with freshly planted Kimberly Queen ferns…..


CIMG3539


the one with the spring and Easter wreath that I have neglected to show you :)…….and there was a surprise!


envelope


My friend Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen fame had sent me a gift. I had won one of her very gracious giveaways! Kathleen and I share a love for the same man…..Bill. You may know him by William Sonoma, but trust me on this one. Kathleen knows him well and calls him by his nickname :)


CIMG3529


Inside the envelope I found six beautiful napkins!! They were covered in sunny happy barnyard animals and just naturally made me think of pairing them with these happy placemats for a special breakfast for two.


CIMG3536


These placemats are so cute that it’s almost a shame to cover them with a plate….almost.


CIMG3521


Now red and yellow is not a color scheme that I would normally even think of. But some tablescapes just create themselves. This one was just waiting to be born!


CIMG3525











My cute little egg cups with rosy cheeks and yellow egg-shaped bowls with strawberries cinched the red and yellow theme.


CIMG3541


These mini mason jars make perfect bud vases for individual place setting arrangements. They are actually salt and pepper shakers from Walmart. An unusual container makes a floral arrangement easy!


CIMG3534


And of course, the bunny and carrot salt and pepper shaker had to make its appearance no matter what the color scheme is :)


I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Please visit her by clicking on her button on my sidebar. And be sure to visit my benefactor Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen here! She is a master of food and its presentation!


Thanks so much for stopping by for breakfast :) I wish you and yours a blessed and joyous Easter! I hope you’ll drop me a note!~~Susan


          THE Cupcake of Cupcakes   

I have absolutely missed you! Life has been busier than a swarm of bees around here! Wedding plans are already in full swing. The bride-to-be invited me on a road trip with her and her mother to choose the gown! The mission was accomplished, the gown is beautiful and I loved being part of the process. However, I had also promised firstborn’s girlfriend cupcakes for a baby shower and I could not, would not renege.

CIMG3020

Although she loved the cupcakes with fondant flowers that I made for my baby shower (here), I knew this baby shower would not be all about finger sandwiches and sterling trays….a little more nontraditional. This mom-to-be is always on the cutting edge of fashion! SO….I gave the hostess this book I bought at Joann’s a while back and let her pick out the recipe and picture of what she wanted. This book is filled with both classic and unique recipes. The pictures are inspiring!

CIMG3011

Her choice was a recipe the book calls “Sweet Sixteen” cupcakes. I refer to them as “Two-Day-Lots-of-Trouble-But Oh-So-Worth-It” cupcakes :). She wanted them to complement her pink and purple color themed shower.

CIMG3010

We had the advantage of knowing that this baby will be a girl! The result was this pink confection with edible purple and pink glitter. I put the cupcakes in hot pink and silver foil liners to match her table.

Tricia's cupcake

Truthfully, the cupcakes will be much easier the next time (and there will be one) I make them. I learned a few tricks in the process. I am passing them along at the end of the recipe. I am joining Hoosier Homemade for Cupcake Tuesday! You can find the party here!

Golden Sour Cream Cupcakes

1 stick of unsalted butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup sour cream or buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 and line cupcake pan with liners. Cream butter and sugar with electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add vanilla. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour gradually , alternating with sour cream and beating on very low speed until just blended. Do not overmix. Spoon batter into into cupcake cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer pan to wire rack and cool cupcakes to room temperature.

Note: I used sour cream and this recipe made only eight cupcakes filled as directed. The results might vary with the use of buttermilk.

Custard Filling

1 whole egg

2 large egg yolks

4 tablespoons sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup whole milk

1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a small heatproof bowl, vigorously whisk egg, yolks, and sugar until mixture is pale in color. Add cornstarch and mix until fully blended. In a small saucepan, heat milk and vanilla over medium-high heat until it just comes to a boil. Add half the milk to the egg mixture and mix until smooth. Pour egg mixture through a fine metal sieve back into the saucepan, and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until cream thickens. Continue to cook for another two minutes, whisking constantly. Remove from heat and pour into a shallow flat pan. Cover with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic touches the surface of the custard to prevent a crust from forming.

Note: I made this a day before assembling the cupcakes. After filling a pastry bag with the custard I rolled the bag in my hands to warm it up and soften the chilled custard. This made it much easier to pipe into the cupcake. I tried using just a pastry tip to fill the cupcake once again. I find that I am able to get very little into the cupcake. I went back to my tried and true method using the apple corer. You can find that method here. This recipe makes more than enough to fill the cupcakes. Eat the rest with a spoon :)

Buttercream Frosting

1 stick unsalted butter, softened

2 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons whole milk

Pinch of salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Gel food coloring, optional

Cream butter and one cup confectioners’ sugar with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. Add remaining sugar and mix until smooth. Add milk, salt, vanilla, and food coloring. Beat until creamy. Use immediately or refrigerate in airtight container up to 3 days. If using chilled frosting, allow it to come to room temperature and beat until creamy.

Note: I doubled this recipe to frost 2 dozen cupcakes.

Assembly: I made the cupcakes and custard filling on one day. I made the frosting and assembed the cupcakes on the second day. I used a medium star tip to pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes. I sprinkled with edible glitter!

All recipes adapted slightly from Celebrating Cupcakes and Muffins by Michal Moses

If you have hung in for the entire post, thank you!!! You won’t be sorry! The recipe is long, but not difficult….I made it :) Drop me note!~~Susan


          It’s time Duterte’s supporters grow up and stop referring to him as ‘Tatay’   
During the term of former President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III, we criticised his government and his followers as being perpetually in campaign mode all throughout his term of office. His Yellow Camp would incessantly grandstand about his and his clan’s goodness and prayerfulness and every speaking engagement was seized as an opportunity to remind everyone that he is the son of “revered” national “martyrs”. This is what made Aquino and the Yellow Camp so repulsive. At the end of all that, Filipinos felt like they spent six years having their intelligence insulted at every turn.
Fast forward to today. The experience of being subject to Yellowtard propaganda for 30 years is something the supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte should reflect upon. Duterte has already spent one year as president. Perhaps it is time his supporters step up above campaign rhetoric and start behaving like critical supporters. The first step towards achieving that and elevating the quality of discourse is to see Duterte as a professional executive. It could begin by dropping this whole “Tatay Duterte” talk.
Duterte is a leader of a nation that aspires to modernise. But Filipinos cannot modernise their society if they continue to deify their government officials and routinely treat them like celebrities, saints, heroes, patriarchs, and, yes, father figures. The fact is, Duterte has a job to do. Being a “father” to Filipinos is not one of them. If Filipinos want to be treated likerespectable adults, they will have to get over their need to call their president Daddy.
Today, unfortunately, it looks as if Filipinos may be suffering from an acute case of daddy issues on a national scale. With the way some Filipinos latch on to their political daddies, I sometimes wonder what those individuals’ real daddies were like when they were growing up. Were they such bad daddies that their grownup kids now seek new daddies? I see the biggest risk to Duterte’s currently-massive support base as being an inability of his followers to grow up and start speaking to the president in the same way a grown up of sound mind speaks to her parents — in the respectful but dignified manner with which adults regard one another. As a parent, I wouldn’t want to see my grown up kids speaking to me like the needy toddlers I broke my back to raise.
What Duterte needs today are not blind followers and cheerleaders. He needs partners in his journey to reform the Philippines, not a bunch of screeching kids in his back seat who need hugs every now and then to calm down.
The biggest criticism Duterte cops from his detractors today revolve around his unstoppable mouth, his inept lieutenants and handlers, and his tunnel-visioned view of what is good for the Philippines. So the biggest challenge to his supporters does not involve simply ratcheting up the slapstick rhetoric they dish out to the public today. Rather, they need to send out moreintelligent messages — messages that stand a bigger chance of winning new supporters and less of the sort that simply kickexisting supporters into a Taliban-like frenzy. You cannot do this by calling the president “Tatay Digong”.
Duterte’s supporters need to provide the president with the right perspective so that he conducts himself and manages his staff in a manner that secures the astounding political capital he enjoys today. The fact that his approaches are unconventional and, in some cases, counterintuitive all the more makes the sustaining of this political capital very important. In a democracy, you cannot implement painful and confronting change without that massive support base. Duterte’s supporters therefore need to evolve from being mere cheerleaders.
A cheerleader’s job is to shout out loud but nonsensical jibberish and dance around in short skirts to egg on their team. That style of “support” is not what will sustain Duterte’s political capital. This political capital needs to be protected by mounting focused effort along two fronts: (1) preventing existing supporters from disengaging or defecting and (2) by pulling in newsupporters from the Opposition camps. The way some of Duterte’s most influential supporters are conducting themselves today does not contribute to achieving both ends. If we put ourselves in the shoes of, say, a Yellowtard and try to regard Duterte’s top-dog supporters from a Yellow lens, we begin to understand why, rather than see things a different way or at least open their minds to alternative points of view, Yellowtards tend to dig deeper into their trenches. It’s because, deep inside, Yellowtards see that Duterte supporters are no different to what they are.
There is also a third front: (3) protecting Duterte from himself. This last one is possibly the most formidable challenge — more so because none of his supporters seem to be up to the task of facing that challenge. Politics, specially in a “democracy”, is all about perception. Good intent is nice, but it will be crushed under the weight of bad public relations. Duterte must not underestimate the threats to his political capital presented by the crooked manner with which both local and foreign media portray him and his government, the way certain “human rights activists” invite foreign meddling into the Philippines’ domestic affairs, and the way incompetent secretaries, spokespersons, and staff erode the public’s confidence in his ability to lead and execute. But for him to recognise those threats, his followers need to remind him to, at least, get to know the enemy better. That way, he will be in a better position to address these political threats.
As we can see, it takes a lot of smarts to be a productive supporter of the president who contributes to protecting and building his political capital and strengthening his ability to fulfil his promises. Cheerleaders may be loud, perky, and pretty. But at the end of the day, many of them are dumb and one-dimensional. The challenge Duterte’s most influential supporters face is to evolve into evangelists and drop the pompom act.

          Video: "Terms of Endearment" by Alistair Begg   

Writing from a Roman prison cell, Paul urged Philemon and his runaway slave Onesimus to be reconciled. Paul wrote with thankfulness and joy because he had been encouraged by stories of Philemon’s faith in Jesus as evidenced by his love for others. Alistair Begg teaches that genuine shared faith in Christ is so deep and transformative that it becomes impossible to remain selfish or unforgiving. (Philemon 1-7)

From tangy to mango: four summer beers worth a taste.

Suffering from writer's block, I went over to see David Smith at Hammer & Ale in Cooper-Young, because the guy knows an awful lot about local beer. Standing before the constellation of 24 revolving local and regional (if you include Iceland) beers, he pointed out the very popular Yazoo Summer Seasonal Gose. "It's a light ale, citrusy sour with coriander and sea salt."

He wasn't talking about a new salad on the menu, but one of those continental sour beers that started showing up about two summers ago, claiming to be the next IPA.

"That sounds dreadful," I said.

David has spent a lot of his adult life in the art world — operating on taste rather than utility — and was kind enough not to call me a Neanderthal. "Well," he said, "we are going through a lot of it." Knowing what I know about the good people at Yazoo Brewing, this was probably one of the better examples of a traditional Gose. It may not be to your tastes, but they don't get it wrong very often.

I'm a professional, so I ordered a flight of four, including the offending sour. It wasn't as powerful as those Lambics that make you want to suck your tongue, but four ounces was enough for me to know I'd had enough. It was very tart. In Yazoo's defense, these sour beers are not for me. A couple of people in this city have tried to change my mind about them but, evidently, I just don't like the style. To be fair, it wasn't dreadful, and if a lot of people are drinking it, there's got to be a reason.

Next on the flight was a limited Lagunator Lager — a bock-style lager by Lagunitas, another brewery not known for getting it wrong. It had that heavier bock finish, but it wasn't anything you'd call a heavy. It was light enough and very good. It is the sort of beer someone who spends the depths of winter plowing through Scottish ales would love to hoist in the summer.

My next beer was a Longfin Lager by Ballast Point. And this was where I stumbled on a really great summer beer: very light and crisp, without tasting watered down. It's the craft beer that Mrs. M, a Bud Light girl, and I would likely agree on. And that's the sort of compromise that makes for a happy marriage.

Where Ballast Point lost me was on the final stop: Mango Even Keel IPA. I like IPA, and I like Mangos. But similarly, I like chocolate, and I like olives, but not chocolate-covered olives. If I were inclined to throw some mango into something I was drinking, that something would be rum.

My dominant thought while drinking it was, "Can't we just leave IPAs alone?" These waves of innovation are teetering on the edge of what the Brits would call "Too clever by half," and they invented the stuff. It's like trying to put a modern spin on your grandmother's fried chicken when you ought to just admit the old gal got it right the first time. And I say your grandmother because neither of mine could boil an egg.

The great thing about Hammer & Ale, though, is its mix of new and traditional beers. Experiments, even failed ones, can be fun. So even if I was offended by mango in my IPA (this is a pretty popular selection, so try it yourself), I could contemplate the ordeal with a pint of one of my go-tos, like Founders All Day IPA — which lives up to its name with enough hops to know it's there, but not so overpowering to get bitter in the heat.

It's the sort of beer your grandfather might have had. Again, not my grandfathers, they were from Clarksdale. Mrs. M's grandfather, on the other hand, was a Brit. I don't think he could boil an egg either.

          Sandusky High School Graduating Class of 1917   

The senior class of 1917 was the largest class of graduates in Sandusky High School’s history up to then. The class consisted of 68 young men and women, but Esther Hartung was ill and could not attend the commencement ceremony. Rev. C. L. Alspach had addressed the class at the High School on the evening of June 4, 2017 during the baccalaureate service.


He urged the members of the class to seek to attain the ideals of true manhood and womanhood, rather than the ever-changing measure of success as measured by the world. During the baccalaureate service one hundred high school girls sang the song “America Triumphant” which was fitting, since the United States had just entered World War I in April. Rev. J.H. Holdgraf offered a prayer for peace, and the hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers” was sung.  

The Sandusky High School graduation ceremony took place on June 8, 2017 in the Sandusky High School auditorium, then located on Adams Street.



The speaker at graduation was Professor Delbert G. Lean from the College of Wooster. He stated that the men and women of the class of 1917 are the “men and women of the hour in an age of speed.” Professor Lean discussed the many changes in industry and technology, and spoke of the importance of education. He reminded the graduates that the youth of today “control the destinies of tomorrow.” He urged the senior class members to have conviction of purpose. Principal W.A. Richardson presented the class to Superintendent James T. Begg as “the largest and best class” ever to graduate from Sandusky High School.  Superintendent Begg pointed out that a high school education was valued at about $1800, according to figures from U.S. Government officials. Music for the commencement was provided by the high school orchestra, under the direction of Professor G.D. Jones. Several high school students also performed solos and duets.

          uovo sbattuto   




Literally this means smashed, or beated egg. T made this lovely concoction this morning for breakfast.
Recipe:
2 raw eggs
40 tsp of sugar, more or less according to how sweet you like it

Beat egg with sugar enthusiastically until heartrate is well above resting rate for 2 minutes.



For me, raw eggs and sugar are prime heart attack material but for Italians like my husband they are considered breakfast during your childhood years. Apparantly he ate this religiously between the ages of 6 and 12 because it was considered *good* for you. Raw eggs=protein. Sugar=energy. As a former vegetarian (ahem, vegan for 2 years) I have a really hard time believing this is good for anyone, let alone children. Needless to say I was slightly aghast when he concocted this up for breakfast this morning. But then again, who am I to judge? They say the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest on the planet. Although I'm not sure this falls into that category....

          New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016   

Oribe Hair Care was in the hands of dozens of hairdressers during the most recent New York Fashion Week, and our Oribe educators and network of stylists created an array of looks—from stunningly editorial to sweetly simplistic—to complement the designers’ Fall/Winter 2016 collections. Discover each show and style below.

NICOLE MILLER 
Hair by Tomo Jidai

Nicole Miller’s Fall 2016 collection draws inspiration from Nordic influences, from the topography and folklore of the region to knits and ceramics. The icy essence of the designs, balanced by a spirit of coziness and whimsy, is beautifully reflected by lead hairstylist Tomo Jidai’s simple, effortlessly Scandi-chic hair.

Get the Look:

  1. Start with damp-to-wet hair.
  2. Part the hair so that it falls naturally, then take the parting ear to ear and spritz Foundation Mist section by section. 
  3. Apply Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil from mid-lengths to ends.
  4. For thinner hair, apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to add volume. 
  5. Finish by blow drying in sections and smoothing out with a brush.

 

ADAM LIPPES
Hair by Ramona Eschbach

Inspired by British building designers Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll who combined formal and informal to modernize English estates while keeping their authentic beauty intact, Adam Lippes’ Fall/Winter 2016 collection presents with silk jacquards, velvet burnouts, Japanese denim and metallic lames—all of which stand the true test of time. Lead stylist Ramona Eschbach creates a classic shape with a slightly imperfect finger wave style and encouraged texture to complement the timeless sophistication of the line.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse on the roots and Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream on the ends. 
  3. Allow to air dry while using hands to encourage waves.
  4. Use a curling iron to define flat waves around the face. Spray each section with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray.
  5. Set the remaining hair with a large curling iron and smooth into loose waves. Brush out and finish with Dry Texturizing Spray throughout.

 

JILL STUART
Hair by James Pecis

Inspired by the ’80s and female icons like Paloma Picasso and Tina Chow, Jill Stuart’s Fall 2016 collection embraces a moody but feminine opulence with textured fabrics in jewel-toned hues. Enhanced by rich embellishments, ruffles, and luxurious fabrics that are quintessential to Jill Stuart’s design DNA, the line is perfectly complemented by the edgy ’70s-goth waves created by lead hairstylist James Pecis.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and blow dry straight. 
  2. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray over the top of the hair and brush through, making sure that the top is blown down flat. 
  3. Hold a large curling iron vertically to create an “S” shaped wave.

 

EDUN
Hair by James Pecis

Staying true to the brand heritage, EDUN’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection celebrated organic fabrics and artisanal craftsmanship. Inspired by Morocco, diversity and taking handmade artisanal items and incorporating them into fashion, lead hairstylist James Pecis created a beautifully textured ponytail that was light and airy to complement the collection. On some of the models he incorporated reworked buttons as hair accessories to reflect the theme of the show.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo and Essential Antidote Replenishing Conditioner to create a clean, soft base.
  2. Spray Maximista Thickening Spray section by section from roots to ends, focusing more on the mid-shaft to ends to start creating texture. 
  3. Create a soft center part. 
  4. Using a mid-sized iron, create natural looking waves, alternating directions towards the face and away from the face. Once you’ve completed the whole head, gently break up the waves with your hands. 
  5. Work Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-shaft to ends to create even more grit and lived-in texture. 
  6. Create a low ponytail and secure with an elastic the same shade as the hair. When in doubt, go a shade darker.

 

VERONICA BEARD
Hair by Kien Hoang

Presenting a fresh take on the bohemian gypsy, Veronica Beard’s Fall 2016 collection embraces a free-flowing, unstructured aesthetic with a light romantic ease. Lead hairstylist Kien Hoang explored a similar effortless femininity for the hair, creating a natural texture that is characterized by a light wave bend on the lengths and softly gathered at the nape of the neck.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist
  2. Apply Matte Waves Texture Lotion (launching April 2016) and use fingers to roughly blow dry and enhance the natural wave.
  3. Use a mid-size curling iron to fold the hair alternately through an iron to create soft bends. 
  4. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray at the base to add texture to the roots. 
  5. Rake AirStyle Flexible Finish Cream (launching April 2016) through the ends to enhance texture and add separation. 
  6. Finish by sewing a hemstitch with an elastic to direct hair together toward the nape.

 

BRANDON MAXWELL
Hair by James Pecis

Brandon Maxwell’s sophomore collection is a feminine and unapologetic love letter to the city of New York. Lead stylist James Pecis intensified the designer’s homage to the city’s greatness by drawing inspiration from the sexy uptown girl venturing downtown. To further strengthen the presentation of Maxwell’s art-deco-infused, modern take on power suiting and evening wear, each model walked down the runway with a unique hair look.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and a dime-size amount of Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream
  2. Cornrow the hair back beginning one inch from the center part and finishing below the crown. 
  3. Apply Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-lengths to ends on hair that is not already braided and use a wide-tooth comb to scrape hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. 
  4. Use Dry Texturizing Spray and Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste to create a super rough, smashed-in twist in the ponytail. 
  5. Finish with Superfine Hair Spray.

 

THE BLONDS
Hair by Kien Hoang

This season The Blonds Fall/Winter 2016 collection tells the story of twisted self-discovery through glamorous rose-tinted lenses in The Blonds Wonderland. Inspired by a Gregg Araki-Quentin Tarantino reinvention of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, lead stylist Kien Hoang creates an anarchic art piece that complements the showstopping line. Each ultra-high ballerina ponytail explodes with whipped strands and wild shades of pink.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with a combination of Foundation Mist and Maximista Thickening Spray.
  2. Pull hair into a high ponytail on top of the head and pull out random sections. 
  3. Apply Sculpting Cream to each section and use a Wind Spin Hair Dryer Curl Diffuser to twist and spin the sections into twisted knots. Hold the ends of the twist together with Original Pomade
  4. Wrap sections around the ponytail to create a messy bun that will serve as the anchor for the extension piece. 
  5. While each extension pieces are still individual, spray with Soft Dry Conditioner Spray and use the Wind Spin to spin and twist the extension. Apply Original Pomade to the ends as done previously to the natural hair. 
  6. Anchor each extension into the bun and expand each spiral to achieve a fuller twist. Begin to shape: The front pieces of the ponytail should drape over one eye with a few tendrils cascading while the rest should hang slightly off to the side. 
  7. Spray pink hair spray into the natural hair to create a seamless look with the extension pieces.
  8. Fashion the veil into the base of the ponytail using pins to secure. The veil should be tight on the sides to accentuate cheekbone structure. 
  9. Finish with Superfine Strong Hair Spray to set the style.

          Christina Tosi   
Christina Tosi is the chef, founder and owner of Milk Bar, the dessert offshoot of chef mastermind David Chang’s Momofuku restaurant group known for its addictively delicious baked treats like Cereal Milk and Crack Pie. Born with a picky palate and a permanent sweet tooth, Tosi always preferred dessert over a main course meal. Eventually her everyday diet turned into a culinary passion and profession. By 2008, she opened the first Milk Bar location in New York City’s East Village; it now has five other locations throughout the city as well as in Toronto, Canada.

Tosi’s love and talent for baking hasn’t gone unnoticed: In addition to the swarm of customers who ask for Milk Bar’s famous cake truffles, pies, cookies and soft serve, the James Beard Foundation awarded Tosi with the Rising Star Chef of the Year award in 2012. This year, she was a finalist for the James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award.

In between her busy schedule of baking and writing a second cookbook Milk Bar Life (slated for shelves next spring), Tosi talked to us about her summer plans, beauty routine and, of course, dessert.


What was the very first thing you baked and how old were you?


My grandmother taught me how to bake, and we made oatmeal cookies when I was five years old.

What's the most memorable dessert you've ever had and where?


Chocolate and peanut butter custard at Kline's Dairy Bar in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

What exciting things can we expect from your upcoming book?


It’s all about our life and lifestyle outside of the kitchen. Each chapter will focus on a different theme: think backyard barbecues, summer hangouts and team-building, snacks to make when you come home dog-tired at 10 pm and need to eat something but only have war rations left in the cupboard (it’s a specialty of ours) and more. We are excited to share the hilarious, youthful and fun-loving culture that is Milk Bar Life. We might even take a road trip!

We like to think that Milk Bar treats are what started the dessert craze in New York City. With so many dessert hybrids trending at the moment, what do you think will be the next big thing?


I think it’s all so exciting. I predict fun and boundary-pushing ice cream flavors and popsicles will be the big thing in these coming summer months.

What do you like to do when you're not at Milk Bar?


I love to travel, run, ride bikes and do silly things outdoors. I also love to listen to music, watch old and new movies and garden.

What have you been up to this summer?


I recently went to trapeze school with my siblings. I’ve also gone camping and to Hershey Park over the Fourth of July weekend. Since it’s so beautiful out, I love to transform all of my activities to outdoor movies. One of my favorite summer after-work activities is to go see movies in the park. I even have all the of park/movie schedules downloaded!

What's your beauty routine like?


I have to be prepared to bounce in and out of the kitchen at any moment, so I keep things simple and light. Usually, blush for my cheeks and a little on my eyelids for color and warmth.

I’m a tomboy from sun-up to sundown but when I'm jumping into a cute outfit and off to dinner or an event, I throw on my favorite lipstick to glam up my look and remind myself to let go of the tomboy a little and get girly. (I always keep a few colors in my bag.)

For hair, I go to sleep with my hair wet so when it dries overnight, it has volume and personality. It’s also probably because I’m too lazy to do anything fancier. I always twist and clip back my baby hairs with a bobby pin.

You once mentioned that Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray is your favorite product. What do you love about it?


Yes, it is! I have straight, thick hair that loves to pick up humidity any chance it gets. I spray a little bit of Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray in my hair every morning before I head off to work. It smells like a romanticized version of the beach to me, so it keeps my hair looking fresh and keeps me feeling cool and mellow. It’s my secret weapon.

If you had your own salon, what kind of sweet treats would you offer?


Chocolate chip cookies, gooey butter cake and cake truffles, which are all super easy to make.

Any recipes you could offer salon owners for easy pick-up desserts clients could eat while they wait?


We have a ton of easy recipes on our website, including our Cornflake-Chocolate-Chip-Marshmallow Cookies and Birthday Cake Truffles. For those of you in the New York City area, we also offer a monthly baking class in our Williamsburg kitchen, the heart of Milk Bar.

If you could recommend an easy summer dessert recipe for a first-time baker, what would it be?


Ice box cake! I created a version with strawberry marshmallows and Ritz crackers:

Strawberry Marshmallow/Ritz Ice Box Cake

Ingredients:
1 ½ tbsp Powdered gelatin
1/3 cup Cold water
1 cup Sugar
¼ cup Water
½ cup Strawberry puree (We take our favorite seasonal Tristars, puree in the food processor and strain out the seeds)
2 Egg whites
½ cup Confectioner’s sugar
¼ tsp Kosher salt
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1 pint Strawberries, cleaned and quartered

In the bowl of a stand mixer, sprinkle gelatin over 1/3 cup water. In a saucepan on low heat, combine sugar and ¼ cup water; stir just to combine. Increase heat and bring mixture to a boil, without stirring, until a candy or digital thermometer reads 240-degrees F (6-8 minutes). Carefully pour sugar mixture into stand mixer bowl over gelatin mixture.

With whisk attachment, beat mixture on high for 5 minutes until bowl’s contents are white, thick and almost doubled in size. (Set a timer, as more than 5 minutes will begin to deflate the mixture.) At 5 minutes, add strawberry puree and continue whisking until even in color. Transfer mixture to a separate bowl.

With a cleaned stand mixer bowl and whisk attachment, on medium high, beat the egg whites, salt and confectioner’s sugar until they hold stiff peaks. Pour in strawberry mixture and whisk until just combined.

On a serving plate arrange Ritz crackers in a 6” circle, spoon or pipe a layer of the strawberry fluff, stud with a few pieces of fresh strawberries. Arrange another layer of Ritz crackers and repeat, tapering in the ice box cake as you go. Refrigerate overnight. Serves 8.

          Josh Marquette    
Tony Award-winning Broadway show Kinky Boots, the story of the friendship and partnership between a man struggling to keep his family’s shoe business afloat and a drag queen looking for comfortable heels, is delighting sold-out audiences with its rousing song-and-dance numbers, incredible fashion and, of course, fabulous hair. “I was really proud of the hair,” said the show’s lead hair designer, Josh Marquette. “Everyone looks so beautiful; most people in the audience actually think they’re real women!” We chatted with Josh about prepping the show’s 50 different wigs, the famous divas who inspired the looks and what he’s working on next (HINT: He’s going from drag to Disney).

How did you get your start in Broadway?


I wanted to work on Broadway my whole life. I went to Southern Oregon University for theater, and I was exposed to every different aspect of putting on a show. I learned about wigs, makeup and facial hair in one of my classes and realized I had a talent for it, so I went to beauty school in New York City after college to learn to cut and color. Halfway through, I got a job on the crew for Flower Drum Song. After that, I did every free show and benefit that I could to get experience and make connections.

At this point, you’ve designed the hair for many shows. What’s your creative process for coming up with the various styles?


I usually start by meeting with the costume designer and getting his or her take on the show as a whole and each scene within it. Sometimes they have specific ideas for the hair; sometimes they’re open to anything. I also talk to the director about any ideas or input. Depending on when and where the show takes place, I research the era and culture. Then I think about what works for each character, the actor’s face, whether the hair needs to portray humor or disappear into the background, and many other contributing factors. I also try to get to know the music for the show; it gives you a better idea of what’s going on and what the dancing will be like.

Where did you look for inspiration for the "Kinky Boots" looks?


I collaborated a lot with costume designer Gregg Barnes (we’ve worked together many times; early in my career, he was my knight in shining armor!) and director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell to come up with the styles. Kinky Boots was interesting because the inspiration could really draw on any era for drag queens, so I had the world at my feet when exploring references. I looked at old Hollywood pictures and contemporary red carpet hair. For Billy Porter, who plays the lead character of Lola, I had to look at African American hair. I worked really closely with Billy on ideas, and we pulled a lot of inspiration from Whitney Houston, Beyonce, old school Diana Ross and RuPaul, plus elements of Queen Latifah and Tyra Banks.

In coming up with the looks for the rest of the cast, I looked at RuPaul’s Drag Race to some degree, but mostly got inspired by beautiful women. Of course, the proportion has to be bigger for a drag queen, but I didn’t want to cross the line into looking like a clown.

How many wigs are used for the show? How long do they take to be prepped for each performance?


There are a lot of wigs in our hair room—about 50 now! Lola has five wigs alone. There are eight shows a week, so there isn’t time to completely re-style every wig for each performance. The team does light touch-ups for every show and full touch-ups for a few wigs every day. They are working very hard back there!

My favorite wig is a braided Mohawk with curly red pieces; it’s so perfect. I also love Lola’s first wig because it moves so well and the gorgeous finale wig.

How many people are on the hair team? Are you backstage for every show?


I worked with the director, costume designer and choreographer early on to come up with looks, have the wigs made, do initial fittings and design the looks. I stuck around through tech rehearsals and hired a crew of three to take it from there. I pop in every now and then, but I know the show is in very capable hands.

What are your secrets to keeping the styles in place throughout all the dancing?


When designing the looks, you have to consider how the hair is going to look—and hold up—during dance numbers. I try to come up with styles that don’t need a lot of hairspray because it dirties the wig, so there are lots of hidden bobby pins. I also use good heat-protecting products instead of hairspray, and I love that mousses are making a comeback.

What are some other favorite shows you’ve worked on?


Drowsy Chaperone was my all-time favorite, even though it didn’t last as long as it should have! It has a special place in my heart because it was my first Broadway design job. We created 1920s hair; lots of pin curls! It was a challenge coming up with looks that were classic but didn’t make the actress feel like an old lady. My favorite part was outrageous Latin lover Adolpho’s wig, which was intended to look crazy and out-there. In a dream sequence, the white stripe on his wig turned into a gold stripe; it was a subtle touch, but it made me so excited when people noticed it.

Elf was also a blast; it was set in contemporary times and the elves themselves could be fun and wacky.

In addition to Broadway, I worked as a department head stylist on 30 Rock for three years, on Saturday Night Live for several years as a fill-in stylist and on seasons of Gossip Girl.

What’s next for you?


I’m working on the Disney production of Aladdin, which is currently doing an out-of-town tryout in Toronto and is scheduled to hit Broadway in March. We’re creating beautiful contemporary hairstyles, including Jasmine’s soft waves and ponytail.

          Love Bites   
Still planning your menu for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner? We asked personal chef Dara Lyubinsky, whose high-profile clients include well-known names from the entertainment and sports worlds, for some easy last-minute recipes. "They say the fastest way to someone’s heart is through his or her stomach,” says Lyubinsky, who runs Tastes Like More Culinary Services. “While that rings true all year round, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to whip up a delicious meal for the one you love. These recipes feature heart-healthy benefits (omega 3 fatty acids in the branzino and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate in the dessert), and there’s minimal cleanup and fuss so that you can get on to more exciting parts of your evening …



Oven-Crisped Branzino with Herbed Fleur de Sel over Lemon Basil Pesto Risotto
Serves 2 with leftovers

1 large Branzino, filleted
1 Tbsp Herbed Fleur de Sel or other sea salt
2 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken stock
2 Tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
4 Tbsp minced shallotts
1/2 cup Carnaroli or Arborio rice
4 Tbsp Brandy or Cognac
1/4 cup store-bought basil pesto
Zest of 1 lemon

In a small saucepan, heat the chicken stock until it boils, then reduce to a simmer and cover. In a 3-quart saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until it starts to foam. Add the shallots and stir, cooking until tender for approximately 3 minutes. Stir in the rice and toast it in the shallot and butter mixture for 2 minutes. Add the brandy or cognac, stirring until it has almost completely evaporated. Add 1/4 cup of chicken stock and stir until absorbed, approximately 2 minutes. Continue adding the stock, stirring constantly, each time waiting for the rice to soak up the liquid. Repeat until the rice is al dente—this should take approximately 20 minutes. While you add chicken stock, heat the broiler to high. Place the fish filets on a parchment-lined baking sheet and dab very dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle both sides of the fish with the fleur de sel and, with the skin side up, place the fish under the broiler for 5 minutes or until the skin slightly blisters and the fish turns opaque. Remove the risotto from the heat and stir in the pesto and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the Risotto to two serving plates and top with the crispy skinned Branzino.



Individual Warm Chocolate Gooey Cakes
Serves 2 with leftovers

3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
1/8 tsp sea salt
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate (I like Guittard or Valrhona)
4 Tbsp unsalted butter plus more for greasing ramekins
1 large room-temperature egg
1 large room-temperature egg yolk
4 Tbsp sugar, divided

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees with the rack in the center of the oven. Combine 1 Tbsp sugar with 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder. Butter two 4-oz ramekins and dust with the sugar/cocoa mixture, tapping out the excess. Place the ramekins on a parchment-lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and remaining cocoa. Set a heat-safe bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the top of the water. Place the chocolate and butter in the bowl, stirring with a heat-safe spatula until just melted. Remove from the heat and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, egg yolk and remaining sugar. Add the flour mixture, stirring gently into the eggs. Slowly add the melted chocolate mixture, being careful to bring the temperature of the eggs up slowly so they don't scramble. Divide the mixture between the two ramekins. Bake for 12 minutes, then transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack for 2-3 minutes. The cakes can be inverted onto a plate and topped with ice cream or eaten right out of the ramekins. Enjoy warm!

          Comment on CNN Proven Very Fake News, Dollar Tanking, Yellowstone Could Blow by Jennifer Arbach   
The last story about Yellowstone sent me immediately to Revelation 6:12; "And I beheld when He had opened the 6th seal, and ,lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood.". vs 17: "For the day if His wrath is come and who shall be able to stand?" Folks , we are living in the time of the 5th seal, the antichrist comes at the 6th and Yellowstone could be the opening of that 6th seal. Watch, pray and know that God's people will stand victoriously when all is said and done! Jesus comes at the 7 trump.........We are seeing the culmination of Scripture right before our eyes. And as Gregg says at the end if every show, God the Father is in charge!
          Potato-Crusted Quiche with Bacon, Mushrooms and Spinach   

I'm a HUGE fan of quiche!  I could eat it any time of the day...unfortunately my family, not so much.  Which means I only get to make quiche when I'm going to a bible study, or a brunch, or hosting something at my house.  I have seen this potato crust before but never tried it.  Will definitely be doing this again, it was easy and really yummy!  If you're not into making a pie crust or have some extra potatoes lying around, give this a try.  Really sorry about the picture...I was in a hurry to take this to bible study and I didn't have time to take a decent picture!

Potato-Crusted Quiche with Bacon, Mushrooms, Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
 {recipe adapted from cookincanuck }


INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 lb. potatoes, unpeeled, cut into really thin 1/8 inch slices {I used Yukon gold potatoes}
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup (packed) Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh baby spinach, torn roughly
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk {I used 1/2 cup low fat milk/1/2 cup half & half}
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded {I used Parmesan/fontina blend}
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch strips
DIRECTIONS:
  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  
In a medium bowl, combine the potatoes, melted butter, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, salt, and 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper.  
Coat a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray and arrange the potatoes in concentric circles on the bottom and sides of the dish.  Be sure to overlap the potatoes to avoid gaps between the potatoes after baking.  Bake until the potatoes are light golden brown, about 25-30 minutes.  Remove from the oven.

Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees.
In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon, stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crisp.  Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon from the pan and lay on paper towel.  Pour out all but 1 tbsp. bacon drippings.  To the pan, add the mushrooms and saute about 4-6 minutes.  Add the spinach and cook until barely wilted, about 30 seconds.  
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, and 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper.  Stir in the cooked mushrooms and spinach.  Pour the egg mixture into the potato crust.  Sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes and cooked bacon evenly over the egg mixture.  Bake the quiche until the eggs are set and golden brown, 30-40 minutes.  

          Pretzel Bites. A perfect snack.   

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been in the baking mood lately.  It's super rare, but I've been home a lot the past couple of weeks.  I'm usually, on a good week, home maybe 1 day out of the week.  With commitments at my kids school, meetings, or appointments, my week gets filled FAST!
Thankfully, I've had some down-time, which has allowed me to really tackle my house cleaning, organizing, and has even left some time for a little reading and baking :)
On Sunday I made these little pretzel bites which were a HUGE hit with the family!  I was a little uncertain if they'd notice that I used whole wheat flour, but thankfully no one said anything!!  The recipe really isn't difficult, maybe a little time-consuming, but not difficult at all!  If you've never tried making homemade pretzels, I highly recommend it. Your family will thank you :)

HOMEMADE SOFT PRETZEL BITES {recipe by Two Peas and their Pod }


INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water {not hot}
  • 2 Tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 packet active dry yeast {I used perfect rise yeast}
  • 3 oz. unsalted butter,  melted {I used salted butter}
  • 2 1/2  tsp. kosher salt {I reduced the salt to 1 1/2 tsp. because I used salted butter}
  • 4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour {I used about 2 1/2 cups of TJ's White Whole Wheat Flour}
  • cooking spray
  • 3 quarts water
  • 3/4 cup baking soda
  • 1 whole egg beaten with 1 Tbsp. cold water
  • coarse sea salt
DIRECTIONS:
  Combine the warm water, brown sugar, yeast and butter together in a bowl with a stand mixer.  Mix with the dough hook to combine and let sit for 5 minutes.
Add the flour and salt and mix on low speed until combined.  Increase the speed to medium and continue to knead until the dough begins to pull away from the side of the bowl, about 3 minutes {mine didn't take that long}.  If the dough appears too wet, add additional flour 1 Tbsp. at a time.  Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead into a ball with the palm of your hands.
Spray a bowl with cooking spray, add the dough and turn to coat with oil.  Cover with a clean towel and place in a warm spot until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.  
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Bring water to boil in a large pot over high heat and add the baking soda.
Have a couple of baking sheets ready, sprayed with cooking spray.
 Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a floured surface.  Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, about 4 1/2 ounces each.  Roll each piece into a long rope measuring about 22 inches. Cut the dough into 1 inch pieces to make the pretzel bites.  Boil the pretzel bites in the water solution in batches, about 15 bites at a time.  Boil for about 30 seconds.  Remove bites with slotted spoon and place on prepared baking sheet.  Make sure the pretzels are not touching.  Brush the tops with egg wash and season liberally with the coarse sea salt.  Place into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
 Serve with mustard or make your own cheese sauce.  The original recipe over at Two Peas and their Pod has a cheese sauce to go with the pretzels.  

          Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies   


Came home from church this morning with a desire to bake!  I was in the mood for cookies, but something a little healthy.  Then, I figured I'd make some soft pretzels for my boys.  I've come to realize that homemade pretzels really aren't too difficult to make.  I have one pretzel recipe on here already, but I'll blog about the other one soon!
Back to the cookies...I found this cute blog Food, Love & Life who had the recipe for my inspiration.  I do have an oatmeal peanut butter cookie recipe on here already, but this one is a tad on the healthier side...But it doesn't disappoint, trust me!!!
Her recipes look amazing and healthy too!  Anyway, the original recipe is a bar recipe, but I was in the mood for cookies, so that's what I made.  She also uses flax meal + water instead of egg, which I would really like to try sometime!  I've heard it works as a great egg substitute!!
Now that my baking is done for the day, I think I'll put my feet up and possibly even watch some football with my boys :)

OATMEAL, PEANUT BUTTER, CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
 {recipe adapted from Food, Love & Life }


INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup {if you don't have this, just increase brown sugar to 3/4 cup}
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter {I used TJ's natural creamy peanut butter}
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour {I get it from TJ's}
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut, optional
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment.
  In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter, brown sugar and brown rice syrup until fluffy.  Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined.  In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the flour, oats and baking soda.  Slowly pour into the mixer and beat until blended.  Remove bowl from mixer and stir in the chocolate chips and coconut.  
Scoop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart and bake for approx. 10-12 minutes, or until light golden brown.  


          Buttermilk Waffles   

Made these the other night for dinner.  Served them with a side of bacon and we were all very happy.
I love making homemade waffles and this recipe has just become my favorite!  It was pretty simple even though it required whipping the egg whites. The big plus was that it makes a lot of waffles, so I was able to use up all of the batter and freeze at least 2 ziploc bags full of waffles.  Makes for the perfect quick breakfast on school days!


BUTTERMILK WAFFLES { recipe slightly adapted from And Then I do The Dishes }


INGREDIENTS: {makes about 18-20 waffles}
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 6 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
DIRECTIONS:
  In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, sugar and baking soda.  In another bowl combine the egg yolks, buttermilk, oil and vanilla.
Preheat your waffle iron and if needed, spray with cooking spray.  While the waffle iron is preheating, beat the egg whites with electric mixer until soft peaks form.   Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk together.  Gently fold in egg whites.
Ladle about 1/2 cup of the batter into your waffle iron.  Be careful not to add too much...the batter will spread once it hits the hot iron...if you add too much batter, it will spill out the sides of the iron.
I like to preheat my oven to 250 degrees and have a baking sheet ready.  After the first batch of waffles are done, place on baking sheet and put in oven.  Keep making waffles until all batter is used, placing waffles on more baking sheets as needed.  
Serve immediately...we like good old syrup and powdered sugar :)
**To freeze waffles, place on cookie sheet and freeze until firm. Once frozen, put in ziploc bags and place back in freezer.  Waffles should last up to 1 month in the freezer.  
To heat frozen waffles, place in microwave for 30 seconds, then put in toaster to get crispy.

          5 Superb Ways to Prolong Your Life Span   
You’re too busy to maintain a healthy daily routine? Yeah, it’s always a good excuse, but please remember one important thing here… Your health is your wealth! Without a proper healthy body and mind, don’t even think of chasing the wheel of fortune, as you don’t even have the require strength to do so!

Below here are the 8 simple yet effective ways to help you keep your health and mind in good shape:

Method No.1
Protein is Your Best Buddy for Your Breakfast
Why? Our brains need lots of protein, especially during the morning time. Hence, it’s always good to add 10~15 grams of protein (Two egg whites might be barely enough) into your breakfast’s list!

Method No.2
An Hour of Walk A Day, Makes You Feel Energetic All Day
Most people like to sleep until the last hour and wake up doing everything in a rush mode. Frankly, it’s better to wake up, maybe an hour earlier and have a nice walk, either around your house or the nearest parks. This is not only good for your health, but also helps refresh your mind as well.

Method No.3
Water is The Main Key of Healthiness 
It’s advisable that we should drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. However, there’s also some “Best moment” to drink water. When? Well, you should drink a glass of water, 15 minutes before your meals. Why? Since you've drunk a glass of water before your meal, and you’re feeling a little bit full now. In this case, your hunger is not as strong as before.


Method No.4
A Stretch Out After Your Meals
Don’t just sit in front of your computer, once you've finished your meal. Go and do some stretch out, as it soothes your muscle stiffness and soreness. By performing some easy stretch out, it helps you to burn a few calories, reduce stress and enhance your focus on daily tasks!

Method No.5
Have Some Good Quality Moment
If your life is only fill with lots of unfinished workload, then I’d to say, “You’re very pathetic!” Seriously, our life is not only about work, but also need to have some good quality moment with family and friends. Don’t give yourself too much excuses, and try to squeeze out at least a few hours every weekend. Do whatever you want and feeling good with your loved ones!

That’s all from me, wish you all have a healthy lifestyle…

Namaste.

          WestJet Announces Service to Orlando from the Region of Waterloo International Airport   

Waterloo Region – The Region of Waterloo International Airport, in conjunction with WestJet, are pleased to announce the launch of new non-stop, seasonal service, between Waterloo Region (YKF) and Orlando, Florida (MCO). Service begins Thursday December 10, 2015 and continues through April 28, 2016.  Seats are now available for purchase on westjet.com or through your travel agent.

“Orlando continues to be one of the most frequently requested destinations by residents of Waterloo Region and we are thrilled WestJet will now provide our community with direct access to its famous attractions and theme parks during the winter months” said Ken Seiling, Regional Chair Region of Waterloo. “We appreciate WestJet’s continued investment in Waterloo Region and thank the thousands of passengers who continue to support their local airport and fly from home!”

The Region of Waterloo International Airport is committed to providing a cost-effective environment which enables airlines to remain competitive, and supports the airport’s efforts in attracting and expanding air service. Airport Management will be recommending a 25 per cent reduction in the Passenger Facilitation Fee for destinations in the United States, effective January 1, 2016, which is subject to Regional Council approval. This recommendation will ensure charges align with the current domestic fee of $15.00 per departing passenger and help maintain a low cost airport model which allows the airport to remain competitive.

“We applaud the leadership shown by the Region of Waterloo International Airport to recommend creating a more competitive cost structure,” said Gregg Saretsky, President and CEO of WestJet. “Initiatives like this help lower overall aviation cost infrastructure and create the kind of operating environment that encourages airlines to invest in new service. This is a positive, forward-thinking move that will benefit the travelling public and local community, and we hope other airports will consider similar initiatives to reduce operating costs and improve the competitiveness of the Canadian aviation sector.”

          Easter Egg Safety   

Easter egg decorating and hunting is a popular activity for families. To ensure an enjoyable experience with your family, it is important to remember that eggs can be hazardous if they are not handled properly. Eggs must be stored, prepared and handled properly to prevent cross contamination, growth of bacteria and food borne illness. Eggs are porous and can be contaminated with harmful bacteria including Salmonella. This bacterium can cause illness including symptoms of nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and fever.

To have a safe Easter egg hunt and to protect your family from possible food borne illness, follow these simple food safety tips:

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds before and after handling any eggs.
  • Clean and sanitize your work area before and after working with your Easter eggs. Clean food contact surfaces with warm water and a detergent. Rinse with water and sanitize using a bleach solution of 200 ppm (1 teaspoon of bleach / 1 litre of water).
  • Cool hard boiled eggs after boiling by running cold water over the eggs and refrigerating them immediately.
  • Use only clean, uncracked eggs.
  • When colouring use non-toxic food grade dyes (liquid food colouring, fruit drink powders), and store eggs in a covered container.
  • Refrigerate eggs at 4°C or less before and after dyeing. Eggs should never be left out at room temperature for longer than two hours if you intend to eat them.
  • Coloured eggs can be safely refrigerated for one week.
  • When hiding the eggs, keep them away from potential sources of contamination including pets, or dirty surfaces.
  • Discard eggs that are visibly dirty, cracked or that have not been stored in the refrigerator within two hours.

For further information about food safety, please contact: Region of Waterloo Public Health, Food Safety Program at 519-883-2008, or check out our Food Safety web page

          Sexy Fish Brunch   
Sexy Fish London Brunch
Sexy Fish London Brunch

Sexy Fish is an upscale Asian restaurant located in the heart of Mayfair. I went to the Sexy Fish for dinner on a few occasions and when  I heard that they launched sexy brunch, I had to go and try it out for the blog. The best thing about the Asian-inspired brunch at the Sexy Fish, aside from the sexy egg is their Dj line up and celebrity fans. I really like restaurants that have a cool atmosphere as this really compliments the food in the best possible way. We decided to arrive around 1.30pm starved as I really wanted to save myself for the Sexy Fish food. By the way, if you haven’t  tried it yet, I highly recommend. The opulent setting of the restaurant and attentive service put us in a good mood right from the outset. Once we comfortably settled into our comfortable seats, we felt that the refreshing cocktail was in order. I opted for the Sexy Fizz which is made with Absolut, citrus sherbet, thyme, Manzanilla and Champagne. We decided to have another glass of champagne as the branch continued. Food wise, we opted for a few starters including Pepper Crusted Wagyu Tataki which was definitely one of our favourites. […]

          Kypros   

Hei! Jeg hadde skrevet et innlegg om Kypros nesten med en gang vi kom hjem. Merket nå at det ikke ble publisert. Jeg hadde nemlig skrevet en fortelling om hendelsen på togstasjonen, men nå vet jo alle om det uansett. Så jeg dropper å publisere det.

Uansett, Lasse og jeg tok oss en tur til Kypros. Det var sinnsykt varmt, til og med jeg lå ganske mye i skyggen. Dagene gikk stort sett til det samme, våkne - frokost - tane - lunsj - tane - dusje - se how i met youre mother - middag. Dere kjenner jo oss, ikke de som er de mest rastløse. Deilig var det da!


          Les Petites Choses   
This morning, I was an ugly brass picture frame, covered in scratches (which is probably why I was on the uber~junk shelf at HomeGoods)

Now, with the help of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Antibes (green), Duck Egg (blue), Henrietta (the roses) and a wash of  Old White, I am now a miniature verdigris chalkboard that looks as if it belongs in a tiny French garden.

I'm to be a birthday gift for a special young lady.

          Cherry Dream Pie   
Hubby plans all sorts of "parties" all the time during each sport season. This translates into "Jay, can you do a ton of cooking and cleaning so that my friends can come over, eat, drink, and scratch things?"

(OK, in his defense, he does most of the cleaning for parties, but it makes my complaint sound better if I make him out to be caveman-ish)

So, maybe you have noticed that I exaggerate slightly here...
But we did have a handful of people over, and that meant food!
I made a huge pot of chili for everyone. Add in all the other yummies that people bring, we had some stuffed men folk.

Then I brought out this pie.
Every man's head swiveled. Like, as if a hot chick walked by.

Then you saw everyone grab their stomach, groan, and say how full they are. I had a piece, one of the men folk did, and that was about it. When it was time to leave, a couple of people took pieces home with them. Hubby made some comment about having a piece later in the evening.

Fast forward a couple of hours. I head off to fold some laundry, out of the room about 10 minutes.
I come back and there is hubby, looking like a kid caught cheating, with the whole remaining pie in his lap and a fork.
I am not exaggerating here, no matter what I said earlier.
He ate the whole remaining half a pie.

Glad I snagged a piece earlier! The girl child never had a chance.

Ingredients:
3 Egg yolks
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
⅓ Cup lemon juice
1 Ready made graham pie crust
