Hen Parrrrrtaaaay!

I am having a little hen party this evening with my friends Karen and Tami.  I have a Six Cheese Quiche in the oven and Rachel made Death By Chocolate Brownies.  That isnt the real name but it is until I get the recipe from her.  But just imagine this–NUTELLA!!! Bittersweet AND milk chocolate.  Enough said huh?  The quiche is a “made up something from what I had”.  But it has swiss, mozzarella, asiago, cheddar, feta and gouda.  YUM!  And I added some fresh asparagus, leeks and baby bella mushrooms.  I will let you know how it turns out and if it is worth repeating the recipe.  I will say this – IT SMELLS HEAVENLY!!! Now if it just tastes good.

Husband and I have talked several times today.  This is his hotel.

He went walking this afternoon/evening taking pictures.  He said the hotel is very comfortable and the town is very quaint and nice.  He thinks I would like it.  The most remarkable thing to him is the fact that sea gulls are out and about and loud 24/7!  I will post some of his pictures next week if they come out good.  He is using a camera he is not used to but I am sure he is very capable.

Company will be here shortly.  Look for the brownie recipe tomorrow and quite possibly the quiche as well.

Recipe of the Day: Peach and Blueberry Cobbler

This is one of the easiest recipes ever! And if you are not a fan of peaches or blueberries, please use whatever fruit you do like. Strawberries, raspberries, pears, blackberries…

Melt a half stick of butter in a 9 inch square baking dish. Melt the other half and mix with 1 cup self rising flour, 1 cup sugar (I used white this time but have used half white/half brown), 1 tsp vanilla, 1 cup milk, half/half or evaporated milk – depending on how rich you want it! Mix all ingredients but the fruit and the butter you melted in the dish with a whisk until smooth. Pour into dish. Add enough fruit to your taste. You can use fresh, canned or frozen. If using frozen, let it thaw and drain so your cobbler isnt “wet”. You can see above how much I used. I never measure this because I was never told to! This is how my granny made cobbler so this is how I make cobbler…hit and miss…but mostly hit! If you are using peaches you might like to sprinkle the top with a sugar/cinnamon/nutmeg mix before baking. I just sprinkled with plain sugar to make it a little crispy on top. I have also added spices to my “dough” part as well. Nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom and cloves, depending on the fruit I used.  Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until golden on top.  SORRY I left this part off earlier…dont know what I was thinking!

I know this is an odd format for a recipe but it is just that easy!

Guess what!!

Watermelons are not as benign as they seem…they can kill!! OR nearly.

I bought two watermelons on the way home from taking Husband to the airport yesterday. They smelled and looked sssoooo good. And tasted wonderful – so sweet. I fixed myself a bowl and about 4 bites in my throat slammed shut! Good grief. So needless to say I have been asleep most of the afternoon. Three benadryl, a claritin and two chewable singulair later and I can breath and even talk again! So let me add watermelon to my already really long list of things that I cannot eat. Crap.
