The World Peace cookies url needs a fix.

Mari

I so know that feeling, that was me yesterday, so I left my big cake project for a sweeter disposition.

Julie

Cindy, thanks -- the link's been fixed. Typepad has this weird new interface which is, I suppose, an upgrade, but which is giving me some trouble...grrrr.

Mari, you're clearly a smarter woman than I. A big cake project should NEVER be attempted when you're not feeling the love, is what I think.

I hate when that happens. Just get through all this and you'll feel like cooking sooner or later.

That is a perfect tart shell, my love. Absofreakinglutely perfect. The fact that you could turn out something so right when all about you is so not right, well, that just proves that you are a Super Genius, unlike Wile E. Coyote.

Lovely strawberries, too. I would almost kick myself for missing them except that my mom found some Jersey strawbs at her local produce place, so I got mine after all -- but of course, I didn't get to shop for them with you, which is a crying shame.

Knowing that our days for doing this are at a premium, we need to have us a baking day. I have some awe-inspiring new recipes at my fingertips, and they need to be at your fingertips, too. F'r'real.

Julie

Evil chef mom, you are so right. This too shall pass.

Bakie my love, don't mourn the berries. They were pretty good, but nothing like the tri-stars we'll get later in the season. When I asked Mountain Sweet Berry when they would have berries, the nice lady almost laughed at me. "We had snow the other day," she told me. "Berries won't be out till well into June." Now I get it. Our beloved market has a large spread of farmers both to the north and south, which gives us an extended range for our favorite seasonal goodies, if you think about it. And yah, let's do that baking day. Tell me when, tell me what -- we can do it at my place, if you like.

If these cookies can spread world peace, I'm counting on them to soothe marital discomfort. It's the morning after the hissy fit and I'm still feeling whiny and horrible. Salt and chocolate are going to have to work their magic, fo' sho'.

Lee Ann, it's so nice to see you here. I'm a big fan of yours. One word of advice -- if you're making the World Peace cookies in order to soothe marital discord, be sure to make a really big batch. When there aren't enough to go around, they get renamed World War cookies, because they invoke the desire to kill the person who ate the last one.

The other day my cousin emailed me and told me that if anyone else ate any more of the stash I'd brought her, she was going to "take them out at the knees."

So you see what I mean.

I'm bookmarking the recipes. I broke into the rhubarb you brought us--and the bacon--last night and we had a bistro salad of roasted red peppers and red and yellow tear drop tomatoes, new potatoes, poached eggs and bacon and roasted green beans followed up by a *I must clean the refrigerator* dessert of the leftover poached apricots, fresh rhubarb and strawberries, old oranges cooked to a jam and topped with bread pudding made with chopped pistachios and cardamom. It was pretty good.

We thought of you. Hope we are all together again soon.

But also know that if you can't quite accomplish the joy and happiness part, you'll probably still do fine, and no-one will be the wiser.

I said to G, "Something's different. Something's changed, and I can't quite put my finger on it. He's less responsive." He seemed to me to be going inside himself, retreating from all of us. http://www.nikesoccercleatsshoes.com By Thanksgiving day, he had stopped responding, although he was not unconscious. He simply would not open his eyes, and batted away any form of help or inquiry, refusing even to take water. During the phone call I made to ask for counsel, one of my wise and beloved cousins (who is also a gerontologist) said, upon hearing my description of his behavior, "He's trying to leave, sweetie," confirming what I had both suspected and feared.

So we're off to the barbecue, my sweet ever-patient G and I. And all this will pass, and it will be better, I know. And I'll cook more things just for the joy of cooking them and enjoying real food and spring produce. I've actually taken some ramps and asparagus and spring greens and rhubarb out for a few turns. This has made a very welcome respite from the endless bags and containers and cartons of less-than-stellar take-out, which are the hallmark of weary evenings after extreme days. More about all of that, later.
