I hope you don’t mind if I post more pictures of the goldfinches. I am aware of being in a bird mania–in the grips of their little claws–and can’t resist taking more pictures. So I hope you will bear with me!
Pausing for a moment.
I hope to be posting more recipes soon, but there will be a change in them. Some of you may know that Jim had chemotherapy this year for colon cancer. He’s doing fine. We have found, however, that sugar consumption is not good for cancer survivors. So, we are swearing off sugar. This is actually a big deal–no more brownies? chocolate chip cookies? Gulp. So I will be doing some heavy-duty investigating into low or no-sugar desserts and baking. I have already made a delicious recipe of apple slices cooked in lemon juice with a bit of butter, and cinnamon, dried cranberries, and toasted almonds. The entire recipe called for one tablespoon of brown sugar. Served with Greek yogurt, it was delish. So all is not lost.
Please take care. Namaste. Fran
