This month Bacon of PIglove fame wants a dessert. Mom and dad are not usually dessert peeps but mom found a recipe for Peach Ginger Compote that only takes 15 minutes to make and it is so simple I’d bet ya that if mom screws it up…..I’ll eat frog spit! You got a deal Shoko and I know just the frog whose spit you can eat.
K, let’s get busy mom. There are mouses to catch and snakes to attack.
PEACH GINGER COMPOTE
Prep time 5 min.
Cook Time 15 min
2 cans Del Monte Sliced Peaches in heavy syrup( there is no heavy syrup in this town) or whole cling peaches, not drained.
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tblsps minced fresh ginger
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-high and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until liquid is slightly thickened and fruit begins to break apart.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Using a potato masher, carefully mash peaches to desired texture. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Mom has never cooked a Compote before and didn’t know you need something to put the Compote on like a shortcake or pound cake. Dad was not impressed but ate it by itself anyway. He liked it and is going to make pancakes for breakfast so he can put the Compote on. If you noticed mom threw in a few raisins for eyes….many eyes. MOL
So, to clarify, this is an excellent topping for shortcakes, pancakes, French Toast or anything plain that needs some zip. Definitely, not by itself.
Ellen of 15 and Meowing and Annie of McGuffy’s Reader have been posting sentences for us to fill-in once again.
I, Shoko Neilson, will take the first 2 sentences and sisteh Kali the second 2.
1. I can’t wait to see…MOM…open my gift to her. It’s a total surprise and she’ll never guess it. It’s something she’s wanted for a long time.
2. I have had the same…BLANKIE for…EONS… NOW WHEN I VENTURE NEAR, IT RIPS JUST STANDING ON IT. ONE COULD SPIT TREATS THROUGH IT.
My blankie is very shy and may rip if a picture is taken so no photos.
My turn tuna breath. It’s Christmas morning in just 3 sleeps.
3. I would not mind if Santa were to bring me….A NEW TENT..I SAW ONE WITH COW MARKINGS ON IT. MADE ME THINK OF COW KITTY.
4. On Christmas Eve, I always… SNOOP IN THE CHRISTMAS BAGS UNTIL I FIND THE SMELL WITH MY NAME ON IT. MEW, MEW MEW…
MOL…have a fun day.
A lovely day today. The sun is playing across the sky but the wind is strong and quite fresh. A lovely day for a stroll.
November and we can actually walk on the sidewalks without slippin’ in the snow. Can life be any better than this? Look, our Alpine Willy Clematis is mixed up and there are a few blossoms. A blossom in November. Never seen this before.
Mom and I are headed to the nearest pet store. It’s a very windy day and the wind is making my coat stand up. Refreshing!!
Mom was getting tired pushing against the wind. We stopped at the new industrial development and mom relaxed.
From Gateway we went into the pet store. No pictures here. They gave me some kitties treats. I was famished and grabbed onto one. Immediately I spit it out. Ewwww…it was gross. Don’t ever buy these mom….awful. Mom asked what they were. The clerk said those were freeze dried chicken livers. We won’t be getting those anytime soon.
Mom got a few Christmas presents and we were out of there.
I settled down after those yucky treats and we headed home. As we got closer to the house, mom and I heard some hammering and sawing coming from the garage. Dad was hard at work building something. What is it dad? It’s going to be a house for Cow Kitty so he can stay warm during the winter.
What if he doesn’t like it and won’t go near it….what will we do? Let’s try him with it first Shoko.
I think he likes it. So far so good. I can’t think of something for the door….we need warmth in the house but not to frighten Cow Kitty or make him feel trapped. Should we have clear plastic, a towel or something else. Please we would like your ideas of how to improve the house.
Busy day today.
May your boyfriend never hiss and tell.
