Silly Sunday

Holy Mother of Bast! Mom is moving stuff around! She's moving books from one bookcase in one room to another. It's crazy around here, and I am trying to staying out of the way. According to Mom, I am IN the way.Can you see me in this picture? Mom stands on this little stool to take a picture of the tree outside. Alright, already! I'll move, so everybody can see what the tree looks like today!
~~~~~~~~~~

Some of you have commented on the dried apricots wrapped in bacon. Yeah, sounds weird to me too, but Mom says everybody loved them, and they disappeared real quick at Mim-may's Art Show yesterday. Mom says all you have to do is get some dried apricots and some bacon. Cut the bacon slices in half and wrap them with the bacon, and skewer them with a wooden toothpick or skewer that has been soaked in water. Mom says you can do this well ahead of time. When you are ready to cook them, put them on a baking sheet and bake them in a 400F oven for between 10 - 15 minutes. Mom puts them on paper towels a bit before she serves them. She says they are a combination of sweet and salty, soft and crunchy. The recipe book calls them "Cherubs on Horseback."

I hope Mim-may's show went well. I know she has been working on it for a long time. Rusty won't be joining us, but we are walking around Dodger stadium twice today for JDRF. Rusty will be waiting for the stinky shoes to come home. He always likes to smell where we have been.

Those apricots sound super yummy! Can we send some glue so the leaves can stay on until Nov 27??

Make sure your mom knows that it is NOT POSSIBLE for you to be in the way since you are the queen. Did you get to sample the bacon apricots?

Our mom is trying to get in that mode. She's got books to sort and too much clutter.

We figure ya cant keep track of what is goin on UNLESS ya are in the way (some).

We arent worried about the leafs fallin fast yet. There are always a few sticky ones what dont wanna "leaf" the tree. ;)

These apricots and bacon were a huge hit. thanks L. for all the delicious goodies you made for my show. Love Mom

Mom says she's not sure about the apricots either. She thinks it would be better with mushrooms rather than apricots.

Hope that Mim-may's Art show went very well.

Mom's a big fan of pork and fruit combined so da bacon wraped apricots would go big fur her. She likes to make pork chops wif apples.

Oh, goodness ... Those sound so delicious. Perhaps Mom would stuff the apricot with goat cheese an' drizzle the lot with some port wine-an'-balsamic vinegar reduction? Mmmm ...
