I just joined dreamwidth.org if any of you are members, too. I have not figured out how to find out who else is on there. Used the same name.
I'm roasting garbanzos with siracha and lime for Bob's birthday party tonight. I already made 4 cheese pies... would be called cheesecakes except I couldn't find my other cheesecake pan so I got four graham cracker pie crusts and made them in those. There's a big hole in one of them where the hanging oven thermometer was sitting in the pie, but I think it adds character. My recipe is simply 2 lbs of cream cheese, 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and the rind and juice of 2 lemons. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2  hours, leave in the oven for an extra half hour. This time they didn't fall, but they always do in a cheesecake pan.
I also roasted sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and new crop pecans from the local farm stand. The new crop pecans are divine.
Made a huge pot of chili, too. Got stuffed vine leaves in the can from Felafel King, oil cured olives, and some weird looking pickled eggplants just for fun. Gotta put out the cheese so it will warm up. My friend Dawn who has goats is bringing herbed goat cheese and home made feta. I am really excited about that. Jack, my grandson,is coming with his mom, Karen. Big Jack is coming with his Aunt Suzi and Uncle Bruce since he has no car! I finally get to give Suzi and Bruce the rest of their Christmas presents. I could not find this huge book of paintings of WWII airplanes (it was in Bob's office on his chair) and I made Suzi pierced earrings and her ears have grown shut so I remade them as clip-ons. The Woods People are coming and some of our Gainesville friends and some of the helicopter guys from Trenton (FL) who make experimental one seater Mosquitoes http://www.composite-fx.com if you want to see what they look like. They let Bob fly them.
Bob actually turns 70 on Wednesday. It actually seems old to me, and I'm 68. I find that peculiar.
Time to go work some more.
