Yea for holidays! Three days off work this week – how great is that?
Eighty one degrees today – thank goodness our summer weather has returned again. With this cooler weather we’ve been having, summer has gone by too fast.
Miss Gracie chose to sleep on the chair while I played on the computer today. She insists we must always be in the same room together.
Me, I like to add blueberries in addition to white peaches and yellow nectarines and peaches. I would have added strawberries, but I only had enough left for Nipper who insists on eating them twice a day. That’s okay, tomorrow is another farmer’s market and I’ll get some fresh ones for her and me. Got to keep the kitties happy.
My favorite cookie: Almondina, original style. I buy them at Trader Joe’s. By the way, the latest issue of Fortune magazine has a fascinating article about Trader Joe’s. I highly recommend reading it.
This biscotti cookie is great because it’s not sweet but it has almonds and raisons that give it a natural sweetness.
Perfect for dunking – try it with your favorite coffee.
Lastly, you may have seen on the news today the terrible fire in San Bruno, California that happened when a gas line exploded. This happened in the county where I live. How sad and shocking it was to see this on TV last night. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.
