It's good as a cake filling, pie (see above) and is delicious on scones with clotted cream. I had a Meyer lemon tree when we lived in Los Angeles many years ago. Our neighbors had an avocado tree. We traded - they wanted lemons for tequila drinking and I wanted avocados for guacamole eating. Everybody wins!
Wish I'd known about angel crust sooner! I love meringue in any form, including raw. Meringue cookies, Pavlova, pie meringue....Mmmmm,

Next thing is that I need to cut out (or at least way back) on sugar, so am wondering how Stevia, Truvia, etc. would affect the resulting meringue. I do hate wasting good egg whites on a failure, but I do have 4 left over from making a custard sauce, so could give it a try.

I'm just beginning on the path to gluten free and very low carb intake, so have a lot to learn about allowed ingredients and how they behave and interact. It's a worthwhile path if it will help with the aging brain, arthritis and weight control, but that doesn't mean it is easy to unlearn old habits and learn new tricks. Old dogs, you know....can learn new tricks, but it takes longer!

That's a very good trade to be able to make: lemons for avocados. Bartering seems to be almost lost these days. Too bad I can't pay my doctor in spring asparagus!

Cheers!
Sue

I too will stay on the ground and take pics... I get queasy when I go to s&b second floor and look over the railing..... And I know where the hospital is, and a few of the local doctors..... So will enjoy the FLYING Mutant show....

SPLENDA works well in meringues.... My DH is type 1 diabetes, so i make all his sweets with it. Controls his blood sugar and satisfies his sweet tooth... It is designed for cooking and does not break down with heat... Stevia just doesnt seem to work as well in cooking....

Hey Steve, and all RVMs.

Steve has brought up a very valid point.
We have limited days and time at the GC. There have been a lot of terrific ideas for activities, but I think it is time to throttle back a bit, and ponder stuff.

Steve, you are the Potentate of awesome ideas, coordination and temp management. I ask your indulgence and patience as I kick this off.

There are 6 days and nights.

Some folks need/like to kick back into unstructured time. Sometimes, much of it.

K.
I'm gonna kick off an idea that can morph.

Day 1. Relaxed. Totally adhock. With and evening campfire.

Day 2. Brunch. Free time in Hot Springs. GC Opening Ceremonies at 7PM.

Day 3. Free time until an RVM dinner. Maybe Mardi Gras?

Day 4. Breakfast (brefast) and a daytime event. Evening camfire.

Day 5. A daytime event. Evening dinner and awards ceremony.

Thats about it for now. K?
Help me out aye?

Ah, more folks who know the joys of the kayak! Good memories, aren't they? Mine is a Perception Swifty 9.5', definitely an entry level boat, but one that fits my skill. There is a newer version of it that I may trade up for. Friends are now telling me about lighter weight 'yaks, like carbon fiber, but very expensive. Sold by the foot! And I'm hearing about the Hullavator too...a system that essentially lifts and lowers the boat to and from your vehicle for you. That is very appealing!

Just for the record, 4 of us went out for about an hour and a half today at high tide, and none of us took a dunking. It was a gorgeous day, mostly sunny, light breeze, and plenty of birds about...until the big pleasure boats started roaring by. They were all good enough to drop to safe speed when they saw us (not every one is!) This is, after all, a manatee zone, so high speed up this river is not a good idea anyway.

Next week our larger organized group is going up to Manatee Park on the Orange River where we hope to see manatees in the warmer waters there. Dolphins are not uncommon, but still exciting. Boy is it good to be back on the water! Y'all come and we'll find you 'yaks to borrow or rent!

Cheers!
Sue

As we prepare to eat entirely too much, Nola and I salute you, the RVMs, the STMs, that make the Rainbow so much easier to ride.

Happy New Year folks!

Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve both, the traditional supper in my family is Oyster Stew. Just fresh oysters, butter, milk, and seasoning. For DH I started adding chopped onion and celery, and we like that version too. Add potatoes and it would be quite hearty, but I haven't gone that far yet. Oh, bacon? Hmmm....

Cheers!

I'm in!!! Not quite sure about that family plan, though.

DH's first comment was, "I don't want to lose you that way." Silly man!

I've only been zip-lining once, and loved it. My son and I went with a company in Boulder City, NV, and it was over rocks and dry terrain. The shore excursions from our cruise ship to do that in Costa Rica filled up in a flash, so I didn't get to zip through the jungle. :( The Ouachita Mountains will do nicely, though, methinks.

Cheers!
Sue

They announced on the news tonight, that a man was in the hospital because he fired two shots into the ground and then put one through his ankle. His blood alcahol was .17, better then twice the legal limit in Texas. He's being charged with 1)discharging a fire arm in the city and 2) public intocation (drunk).

We have started the year off right with the black eyed peas, ham, cabbage, and cornbread. Then Stephanie tried walking with a quad cane instead of holding onto me. She's been "walking" all day with the cane. Not long walks but recliner to bathroom, recliner to kitchen, just did recliner to bed - I'm tickeled to death at her progress. This, for us, is a great way to start the new year.
