That's a good thing, right?
I mean, if someone says that about one it should be a compliment, right?
Does it hold true if said person creates the pressure in order to get the work done?
As well as I know me, I would think I would have sorted this out by now. But, regardless of how seriously I lecture myself, and totally ignoring the false deadlines I set myself, I still manage to (as my maternal family would say) fiddle-fart around until I'm in a panic to get everything done on time.
Oh, I always manage to get everything done; and I'm usually not more than a wee bit late, but I have been known to stay up all night or get up at 4 am to pack. Not to mention putting my face on in the car…
Every time we're going away I do this! Same old, same old. One would think I'd learn…But I always know that I can squeeze just one more thing in. And I always do…maybe that's why I never learn.
This time, this is the one more thing: my post for Weekend Herb Blogging, founded by the lovely and very busy, Kalyn of Kalyn's Kitchen. This will be the last event of the year and this is such a marvelous cranberry sauce that I wanted to share.
This week's host is the talented Astrid, of Paulchen's Food Blog. Visit her blog next Monday for all of the wonderful recipes from around the world… Your last chance in 2007!
Cranberries are incredibly healthy. Many people know that they're good for treating urinary tract infections; but did you know they also are good for inhibiting dental plaque? Can help prevent kidney stones? Are full of antioxidants?
And they're pretty…
Ginger Cranberry Sauce
Heat juice, sugar and half of the ginger until sugar is dissolved. Add the whole cranberries and cook, simmering, just until most of them 'pop'. Remove and, with a potato masher, mash 2 or 3 times, no more. Add the rest of the ginger, stir well and cool. This will get very thick when cool and will keep for several weeks in the fridge.
In an hour, the girls will be all excited as we bundle them into the car.
Then, very disappointed as we drop them off at the Pensione Canine. They'll get over it. All the young girls pet and brush them all the while we're gone.
We're off to Strasbourg for a few days to visit the oldest Christmas market in France! Details and photos when we return. Now…must pack!
I plan on doing an interim post of the Skeletons received so far next weekend….along with one or two of my own secrets laid bare… The final, total round-up will be right after Christmas. Soooo….
Don't forget to search your closet/pantry for skeletons. Remember, confession is good for the soul. It can, but doesn't have to, be an actual recipe. It could just be the description of the, um, food or a story of the, um, event; holiday related or not….
Really, any dirty little secret you feel like sharing! You have until Christmas to post – the round-up will be just before Dec. 31. The usual rules: post, link to me, send me an e-mail with permalink. Click for details!
Come on, tell! Share the pain…you'll feel better! And so will we!
