“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods;
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
"And now for something completely different."
From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 07/31/10 - "Bless the Barley/Lughnasadh":
Bless the barley, bless the oats, bless both the wheat and rye; bless golden loaf, and brimming cask; without them we would die. Bless the hands that cut the grain, bless bakers, millers too; bless all those who make the loaf, to nourish me and you....
At the beginning of August comes the barley-harvest in Ireland. They are cutting oats in Wales and Scotland and Cornwall about the same time, and wheat in Brittany a week or two later, and rye in the Norse lands. Bread was indeed the staff of life for our ancestors in most of western Europe and elsewhere in the world, though the grain might vary-- teff, spelt, rice, quinoa, kasha, maize etc-- grain was the source of bread and of beer-- staples throughout most of the world. In Ireland the storm-god Lugh holds the funeral-assembly (Lughnasadh) for his dead foster-mother Tailtiu, at the time of the barley-harvest. For nine days people cut the barley, feast, and hold the funeral-games...traditionally the young people 18 to 27 who have not found a suitable marriage-partner locally travel to Teltown, to look over other eligibles...there are bonfires on the hills, and dances, and and what happens in Teltown DOESN'T stay in Teltown, but travels homeward in the shape of new betrothals (handfastings) and the promise of plenty.
A Greek friend, at this same time, celebrates new grapes and olives and olive oil. All cultures look to the harvest, and the blessings of the High Ones.
May we all reap the best of what we have sown. May our harvests-- first (August), second (September), third and final (October into the start of November), bring to fruition grain and fruit and vegetables and meat, relationships and careers affirmed; blessings offered, accepted, fully received.
Thank you, Domi, blessings to you and yours, too! Thank you also for the theme of the day)!
1. My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/01/13:
| We went to see
Paul's surgeon, the magnificent Dr. Debi Chaudhuri, yesterday
morning, and he removed Paul's stitches. We were able to see just
how nicely he is healing already. We're scheduled to see him again
on October 30.
We will visit Paul's dermatologist, Dr. Manfred Rothstein, again on Monday, August 19 to have the precancerous lesions which adorn Paul's arms and face removed.
2. Me ('65) of NC - 08/01/13:
I saw my PA, Jason Adams,
again this afternoon. The results of my recent lab work and CT
scan of my lungs were in. He said I was suffering from
slopitibostics of the lower chungalump. Okay, he didn't really say
that. I actually have no idea what he did say - something
about a lymph node and the sacs surrounding my lungs and heart. It
isn't healed, but does not seem to be very alarming, so I just need to
return in six months for another CT scan. Meanwhile, I continue to be
slightly congested, which at this time impacts what's left of my singing
voice more than anything else. Sometimes my throat just won't
clear, which again is more embarrassing than anything else.
In other news, my thyroid is still not functioning up to par, so he doubled the dosage on my medication. This was the medication in which I invested such great hope for a gigantic weight loss, but which bombed out after the loss of three measly inches. So I said unto him, "WHOO-HOO! Magic Beans! Now I shall drop 60 pounds by Sunday morning!"
Jason shot me a very dubious look.....

Oatmeal Chocolate Peanut Butter
No-Bake Candy Bars
It is sorta like a chocolate
oatmeal no bake cookie, but extra creamy and special. it almost reminds
me of fudge, but with the added texture of the oats and occasional chewy
sweetness of the dried cranberries--yum!
YUMMY! Thanks again, Susan!
|I want to try this with Gluten-free flour and see how it works. Then test them on primary kids! HAHA|
SOFTEST SUGAR COOKIE RECIPE
This Recipe is a State Fair Blue Ribbon winner. This is
an easy sugar cookie recipe, you don't have to roll it out, and the
cookies are soft and chewy, unlike other sugar cookies. Anybody can make
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, stir into the creamed mixture until dough comes together. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and roll the balls in sugar. Place them on an unprepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake cookies 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until bottom is light brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.
Oh, Crystal, you bad! But these look so good! Thanks!
