THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Celebrate what you want to see more of.
Thomas J. Peters
This granddaughter becomes an official teenager today and my birthday wishes for her have been sent off in the mail. Hopefully I’ll be seeing her soon at one or another of the up and coming functions this month. It seems this month is just packed with one kind of celebration or another going on.
Today is also Teachers Day. Everybody who does something good, important, and valuable deserves a day in their honor. Teachers certainly are among the most deserving. This day honors those hard working, patient and understanding people whom we entrust our children to. Teachers mold our kids in a positive direction, affecting who they are and who they become. From Kindergarten through college, teachers are an important part of our children's lives.
If you happen to be a teacher reading this, I’m sending my thanks your way. Teachers are so important - the future of America is in their hands.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
It’s Chocolate Custard Day and another reason to indulge in Chocolate !
Chocolate Custard for Two
1/4 cup milk
3 tbsp sugar
1 large egg yolk
3 ounces semisweet mini chocolate chips
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
In a small saucepan, combine the milk and 2 tablespoons of the sugar. Heat until steaming and the sugar is dissolved. Put the egg yolk in a small bowl and gradually whisk in the hot milk. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over moderate heat, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.
Turn off the heat, add the chocolate chips and salt, whisk until smooth. Whisk in the butter. Pour the custard into 2 shallow bowls and refrigerate briefly, about 5 minutes, before serving.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey!
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
