Not much happening around here the past few days, and I’ve had nothing to really blog about which is pretty usual, so I’m just blogging on this and that!
I can’t believe that we have made “pets” of two crows! I hate the darn things, but for some reason, we’ve made friends with two of them, (mate’s we believe), who when Tom goes out and whistles, they appear almost instantly and come very close to us now, to see if it’s peanuts or popcorn for a treat.
What a mess they make of the deck though!! I wish they’d go crack open the peanuts some place else, instead of dropping the mess on the deck. I should have bought shelled peanuts!!
This is one of our very rare nice day’s lately! It’s been cold and rainy for days and more to come this week. I envy Ontario’s weather!! People in swimming on this day!
Triple Ginger Pecan Biscotti’s
This is about as boring as it can get, but I’ve been asked for this recipe, and here it is. Click on the small pictures to enlarge. They are DELICIOUS and Tom’s favorite, and they are ALL HIS!!!
Move over Paula Dean!!
Top left is what they look like after all the ingredience are mixed. The trick is to make sure you really mix the butter, eggs really well together, until they become almost thick. Then roll them out, put on parchment paper on baking sheet and cook for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. (I sometimes throw in different things, like cut up gumdrops, or cranberries, or walnuts instead of pecans, or anything I have on hand.)
Below is how they look after 1st baking, let cool for 10 min and slice!
Lower temperature to 300 degrees and second bake for 18 minutes. The one’s below are ready for the oven again.
The last pictures is the finished product. Serve with tea or coffee and dip!! Enjoy!
Meredith (my step-daughter) gave me these lovely flowers for Mother’s Day. I love them!! Thanks Mer!
She’s a fun person and we do have good chats and laughs!
This is Patricia’s partner in crime!!! She looks so innocent and sweet eh?
Yup, Linda, you are showing your age!!! Look at that turkey neck!
They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body.
