    That’s a fried pork chop.


    I forget Friday is open thread day. Too long of a summer, I guess.

    I have my first ever peach cobbler in the oven, right now. I’m practicing so I can get it right by the time my friend comes to visit.

    Hey hey! Now, that’s what I’m talking about!

    Nobody convinced you to put a crumb topping instead of a real crust on there while my back was turned, did they?

      No, and I am sweating my first attempt. The recipe called for a little bit of water mixed with the peaches, but I didn’t add any. By the time I heated the peaches (fresh) and added the sugar and stuff it seemed to liquidly, so I didn’t go with the water. We will see.

    Sometimes you have to add a bit of cornstarch or flour mixed in with the sugar. My mom used to.

    I live alone now, so rarely do that kind of baking anymore. *sigh*. I miss it.

    When I lived with my mother and my daughter I did all that. Baking rocks! 😀

    Kitty, if u take a bit of oil and flour and mix it and add some it will thicken the liquid. 🙂 and u can use it for anything, gravy, sauces that are too thin etc.

    I’m commenting here to say that I may pop in sporadically over the rest of the year and maybe not. I’m definitely not opening my blog back up. There are a lot of things going on right now and I am going to spend most of my time on that. Wish I could say more…

    I hope things go much better for all of u though and that you enjoy the rest of your summer.

    I was looking for your blog, soulsis, to add it to my feed. But I think it is by invitation only, right? I like your voice but I fully understand that the unrelenting day-to-day hatred can get very overwhelming and one needs a frequent escape. Take care.

      Right now its private, soon it will be deleted. I don’t have my comp anymore so I cannot maintain it.

      I have 2 battered women fighting a seemingly losing battle in court against their abusers. That’s way more important to me than blogging right now. If anything keep us all in your thoughts and meditations.

      I definitely will, and if you ever feel like emailing me down the line for any reason, especially if you ever think there’s anything I might be able to do (even if neither of us knows what it is yet), I will always be glad to hear from you, but I won’t expect keep-in-touch type emails from you. I will be thinking of you though. xoxo

    Sorry you’ve got so much to deal with justnow, soulsis. Hope you’re okay.

    That golden glory that can only be brought by deep fried food. Drool.
