We are conceding this round to the puff pastry. I gather no points and have thrown in the towel, but Daniel wants to step back into the ring, eventually. For now, no recipes and no pictures to share.
I will say this though, my beautiful cousin Jannel’s home-made lemon curd was EXCELLENT! Even if the appearance of what we put it on/in was less than pleasing. The taste was exquisite.
At one point during our endeavor Dan opened the oven door, as I stepped close, inquiring, “how’s it look in there?”
His calm and clear answer was, “on fire.” So, yeah. That’s kinda how our evening went. (The flamage was not from burnt food, just some melty, spilled mess that had gone down the back wall. And then caught fire. A lot.)
No harm done, I grabbed for the baking soda and doused the worst of it. In the end, all was edible. Not EVEN CLOSE to what we had planned, but we ate it. And didn’t die.
We aren’t fishing for assvice today, or even baking suggestions, but thank you, sincerely, for the offer, if that was at your finger-tips. We may or may not attempt this type of enterprise again. You’ll be the first to hear if we do.
Let’s move directly on with our daily draw, there is next to nothing else worth reporting right now. (We went to the pool, it was noisy and crowded with our shared-water time, not so great, many of us will be making formal complaints.)
“God Of Reflections ~
The qualities you see in others are simply your own reflection.
You are giving away your power because you fail to recognise and acknowledge the many wondrous qualities that you possess. The qualities you admire in others are simply reflections of the same qualities within you. Yet often, you falsely believe that others are better than you in some way.
It is now time to let go of this belief and allow your beauty, your talent, and your creativity to shine through. From now on, every time you see beauty in another, let it serve to remind you of your own beauty. If you recognise success in another check to see how success also exists within you, and so on.
As your perceptions are brought into balance, you become a more effective force in the world and have more impact on those around you. By acknowledging all the beautiful qualities that you already possess, you open the door to an endless stream of abundance and blessings which stem from the heart of creation.”
This one could NOT have come at a better time for me. I truly hope it’s as helpful and enlightening to all of you, too.

Today’s Good News:
because of Delia‘s superior google-fu skills, we know what my new antique treasure is called, and what it was used for. NOT a pie plate at all! It’s a small roaster. The name of that pattern is Philbe. (I know, PHILBE?!) And the color is Sapphire. (Seems appropriate since that’s my birthstone.) Thank you, so many more details than we had before.
from Corina (after we’d just been discussing this very event), go HERE. And jot that shit down, it all looks WAY cool.
