SCOTCH ~ Some light laugh………..

           On the first day of school, the children brought gifts for their teacher.

 

The supermarket manager’s daughter brought the teacher a basket of assorted fruit.

 

The florist’s son brought the teacher a bouquet of flowers.   

 

The candy-store owner’s daughter gave the teacher a pretty box of candy.  

 

Then the liquor-store owner’s son brought up a big, heavy box. The teacher lifted it up and noticed that it was leaking a little bit..She touched a drop of the liquid with her finger and tasted it.  

 

“Is it wine?” she guessed.       

 

“No,” the boy replied. She tasted another drop and   asked, “Champagne?”

 

“No,” said the little boy………….”It’s a puppy!”

Marinated Mozzarella

Marinated Mozzarella
Marinated blocks of fresh mozzarella in an Mediterranean-inspired mixture of olive oil and seasonings, then top with tangy sun-dried tomatoes and fresh rosemary. Since it needs to marinate for 8-24 hours before serving, this appetizer is a great make-ahead choice.

Ingredients
3 (8-oz.) blocks mozzarella cheese
1 (8.5-oz.) jar sun-dried tomatoes, drained and halved
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Garnish: flat-leaf parsley sprigs or fresh rosemary stems

Preparation
1. Cut blocks of cheese into 1-inch cubes. Arrange cheese cubes and tomato halves in an 8-inch square baking dish.
 2. Whisk together 1/2 cup olive oil, chopped parsley, and next 6 ingredients; pour evenly over cheese cubes. Cover and chill at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Transfer mixture to a serving plate. Garnish with fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs, or spear tomato halves and cheese cubes with short rosemary stems, if desired. Drizzle with marinade, if desired.

“If your cake recipe calls for nuts, heat them first in the oven, then dust with flour before adding to the batter.”

Sounds like great advise to me!

Waking up with thoughts

Breakfast

Have you ever been awakening from a night’s sleep to know that you ‘found’ (that Perfect Something) wll mine was the perfect candy  — when you just needed that taste – not toooo sweet – not really candy taste – but candy all the same?  I did this morning – and I was discovering that – that perfect just a bite of candy is butterscotch!

I’ve been having these weird dreams of things since my surgery on the 23rd of March, and could that surgery have something to do with my remembering my dreams? They say everyone dreams (which I used to do a lot) – but not everyone remembers them.

Another dream I had was one talking to two ‘chaps’ about a eatery~!  They were going to do the work & cooking, I was telling them how it was to be laid out – what the menu was going to be … etc…. down to the name of the place! “Artists Nook” …  Only open Breakfast & Lunch Eggs – Fruit – Breads…Fun things to eat – but in a hurry – don’t worry – we’re ready!  with specific things….(Yes I told them what that was to be too)…..

SEE the place would have delightful colorful artful dishes for breakfast – eggs benedict, fresh fruit, special breads, just to name one — then on the go with fruits & salads all fresh – like greens and rasberries, oranges with slice bread!  At least I have the ideas! AND of course ther Artists works in a little ‘nook’ which most certainly would house some of my hand-painted glass. And making the dishes (to be quick) in my head and unique for all that would be coming!

So see these dreams are unusualy – weird & wonderful!

(( and I might add-Very Real )).

EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 40

Potato cultivars

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.(I’m at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.
