Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge asked for joints and or things you enjoy, Does laughing, and food, and a return visit from one of our students from Czech Republic qualify? I believer her head is just over CR on the map.
Besides all the bent elbows and fingers it was a “joint” effort making these crepes or Czech pancakes.
Is cooking the Thanksgiving meal or any big meal a cooperative venture or a one person show at your house?
While visiting The Native Plant Garden late in the day on Saturday, there was little light or color but a festival of texture surrounding me. The little dog that wandered by joined in with his rough wooly coat.
Does anyone else love the Thanksgiving day Dog show as much as I do? Even if I’ll probably just record it to watch later.
Around where I live there’s been a bumper crop of Fuyu Persimmons (the small hard kind) and we have been given a passel of this brightly colored fruit. We’ve passed some on and yesterday I made two Pies with. It was Easy as Pie! I make it just like an apple pie and
Here’s the Fuyu Persimmon Pie Filling recipe I used. I chose this recipe because it uses Meyer lemons which we also have a passel of.
I must confess I use frozen pie crusts. Who among us can make good pie crust? Please advise.
3 pounds persimmon, peeled, cored, and sliced into thin wedges
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
pinch of salt
Juice from 1/2 Meyer lemon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1. Mix persimmon slices with pumpkin pie spice, salt, and Meyer lemon juice.
2. Add fruit to pie shell.
3. In a bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/3 cup melted butter. and 2 eggs until smooth.
4. Pour mixture over persimmon in pie shell. Cover with top crust.
5. Brush top crust with one beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar. Cut a few slits in the pie to allow steam to escape while baking.
6. Bake the pie at 375° for 45 minutes, until the crust is golden (if the edges brown too quickly, cover with aluminum foil).
7. Let cool 1 hour, then serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
Let me know about your Pie Making experiences.

Here’s one way to get Grandmother’s house in time for the turkey on Thanksgiving day.
This, just off the show room floor, Lamborghini almost disappeared in the reflected fall leaves until I noticed some one standing in the street taking pictures of it.
I know this is supposed to be a roadway image challenge but you can see a curb, right?

That’s how shiny the paint job is.
I’m a sucker for a pretty car, because my dad was a car guy who taught me to identify all the 1960’s cars by sight.
What do you pull over to snap pictures of?
Let yourself be silently drawn
by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.
I used to sit in the cafe of existentialism,
lost in a blue cloud of cigarette smoke,
contemplating the suicide a tiny Frenchman
might commit by leaping from the rim of my brandy glass.
