Feeding Geese

This ended with me wildly waving a tree branch against a deluge of hissing &%$*head geese. Note to self: when feeding geese, maintain a 1:1, parent:infant ratio for ease of escape.

Double the fun

Actually it's two teeth...still won't let me get a peek... Ken gave him a clear lexan block and we can kinda see them when he chews on it. Kinda looks like a snail on the side of a fishtank...



A tooth came through this morning. He won't let me get a picture or even a look for myself.

Kickass Cherry Pie

Last year we didn't add a thickener at all and had a really soupy pie as a result. This year, Ken got on his bike at 11 o'clock at night to go to the store to get tapioca. It came out REALLY well. Sweet cherries were a mistake though. A sweet, sweet, delicious mistake.
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
4 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar
4 cups pitted cherries
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Place bottom crust in piepan. Set top crust aside, covered.
In a large mixing bowl combine tapioca, salt, sugar, cherries and extracts. Let stand 15 minutes. Turn out into bottom crust and dot with butter. Cover with top crust, flute edges and cut vents in top. Place pie on a foil lined cookie sheet --- in case of drips!
Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.
