Menu plan Monday Dec 1st

I have been a bit of a slacker in the kitchen lately. I wasn’t feeling well, but hopefully I’ll be easing my way back into the kitchen this week. I can’t believe that it’s December already, and I feel spoiled that I was able to spent a few hours out in my garden this weekend cleaning things up!

My camera is broken. Believe it or not, that’s what happens when you drop them. Actually, please believe it, you don’t really need to try it and see for yourself. It still kind of works, but just sort of. When you turn the camera off, it takes a picture, which is how I got the picture above. Somehow borrowing my husband’s is a bit that’s a bit of a hard sell–for some reason, he doesn’t want me to drop his, too. Hopefully Hanukkah Harry will bring me a new camera, preferably an inexpensive one that bounces. =)

This week’s food is persimmons. I used to eat them a lot as a child, but haven’t had any in years, so I certainly appreciate Sarah’s pick. Regretfully, the one I have doesn’t look so great, but it was the best I could find, so fingers crossed!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    sorry to hear about your camera. If it makes you feel any better I dropped one a couple off of a cliff a few years ago while rock climbing (it was a goner) and then I dropped my current one in the snow last winter. I can’t remember who, but there’s a company that sells these great protective rubber cases for cameras and they work like a charm!!!

    Happy December!

    My camera objected to being dropped rather too but we suspect the dip in the canal is what finally finished it off.. I’m having to wait till at least christmas to get a new one so currently have to use himself’s little basic one.

    M-elle–I’m so glad I’m not the only one! I’ll have to look into that.

    Esther–I wish I could say I only dropped it once, but this finally did it in. Hopefully there’s a camera in the near future for both of us!

    Oh no! I’m so sorry about your camera. I am the queen of dropping things, and I’ve had many close calls.. Can’t wait to see what those hazlenut/agave caramels are all about!

    Persimmon season ended with the first hard freeze here in Indiana. I was lucky to have a whole persimmon day a while back. I had good luck with a persimmon bar recipe that I posted. I also think persimmon pulp would be tasty in Carrie’s Pumpkin Custard Pie, in place of the pumpkin.
