The dinner for Cate’s colleagues was successful – apart from the Patates Brava. They apparently tasted OK – but they looked disgusting. I checked the recipe – and I made them the right away. Perhaps the person who invented the recipe was short sighted
My second key lime pie was better than the first – and the graham cracker pastry was not quite the complete shambles it was the first time.
But surely there must be a better way to press pastry into a baking dish than with your fingers. I will ask Williams Sonoma if they have a machine that does this. Of course you can buy ready made graham cracker crusts – and I can just imagine what these taste like.
I managed to mow the lawn without doing any damage – but it was tough going. Garden person sowed some seed last week and I am hoping this sprouts quickly to fill in the gaps - some of which are almost as big as the potholes in the streets here.
I installed a squirrel feeder to take some of the pressure off the bird feeders. I bought some special corn which is supposed to be a squirrel magnet.
Of course they ignore it completely - and in fact walk around it to get to the bird feeders.
Ungrateful little blighters.
