Friday's Feast and Flutterings
Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim? Not really. In college I was part of a group practical joke. One of our group had a Karmangia, and a group of us (okay, it was mostly the guys) picked it up and moved it into the locked pool enclosure. That's about it. Well, if you don't count random calls at sleepovers. Are those practical jokes? Nothing very elaborate, anyway.
What do your salt and pepper shakers look like?
They are clear glass with goldtones tops. I like them because that way they match whatever dishes I'm using and I tend to change dishes with the season.
Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)? Well, right now I'm writing to you from vacation (aren't I the dedicated blogger?) We FINALLY were able to get away to our place at Eastpoint for a long delayed escape. We had hoped to come down for Valentines Day but work interfered. So... we are here (the second time in seven months we've been able to make it). Next time, I guess, will the the writers conference the end of March. Anyone else going?
What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry? Whatever happens to be handy. I get lotions and potions from my mom for every holiday and birthday, just about, so I have a stockpile. I have a bottle of something in my car, a bottle of something else next to my bedside table, and a bottle of another thing by my kitchen sink for after I do dishes.
Make up a dessert, tell us its ingredients, and give it a name. hmmm... chocolate chip cookie dough.. spread it all out together in a pan. Bake it til it's just about done.. but not quite. Put chocolate chips and chopped nuts all over the top of it and put it back in the oven til the chocolate chips melt and the cookie is done. Drizzle some melted caramel syrup over the top of it (make a pretty design, now) and top that with melted chocolate in another design. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. The name is Sinfully Delicious.
THIS DATE IN HISTORY
Sorry for the lack of video, but we only have dial up down here on the coast, so... you get to enjoy still pictures from history.
