And, after due consideration, I have to be thankful for a doctor that said, "No. We're not doing your skin test today, you're not getting your shots today. They're too dangerous. We're going to take care of your breathing and your health, first." As much as I'd been all set to get the #@$*(! tests over, I now see his point.
Over the summer, I bought a 4lb bucket of frozen pitted tart Montmoracy cherries from the local farmer's market and figured that I'd take comfort in cherry pie, sometime. I have. It is wonderful, especially warm with a little with ice cream. The extra pound of cherries I've used for "cherry topping" as Crash's sister Coco, in "Crash of the Titans" keeps wanting a reward of pancakes with cherry topping! Too bad Jet wants the topping without the actual cherries... *laughs* Arrowroot starch does an awesome job of thickening but not getting in the way of the flavor of the fruit.
The topping is also very, very good on Greek Yogurt. *sighs happily*
I've also been painting as the writey was too... anxious lately. I need to get pictures up.
Thank you, everyone, that commented on the previous post. I appreciate you concern and care a great deal, it really helps.
