I have never made these before, but there was a lemon that needed using, so I made the attempt. As usual, when I make something new and tasty, the whole pan was gone within the day. That was the extent of my homesteading/homemaking activities on this rainy weekend.
The outside garden got a once over and quick weed-pulling in between showers, and the laundry got hung (under the deck where it will take days to dry in this rain), and it appears that while I was work on Saturday, some of the floors were swept, vacuumed and/or mopped, which is always a good thing.
We had the rare and wonderful opportunity to completely embarrass our teen-aged son. We took the younger kids to the movies and ran into him and his girlfriend. He needs to read up on reverse psychology - the more he tries to avoid him, the more pleasure I take in rubbing it in that I am still his mommy. The young lady in question is quite lovely and was actually excited about the invitation to a decades old rock band (which is more than I can say, since I loathe, loathe, loathe this band enough to want to wash out my mouth when I find myself singing along with them on the Classic Rock station - not because the lyrics are so bad, just because they are irritating and ubiquitous). She may not thank us later, but who knows - maybe these elderly men who should know better than to wear leather pants will surprise me.
I am not being ageist - I really enjoyed seeing The Moody Blues two years ago, even though their bassist was wearing leather pants, but the band in question - I didn't like them thirty years ago, either.
Well, I am well of the homesteading topic. I'm off to buy purple sweet potatoes, since mine are still determinedly all leaves and no tuber, to make a sweet potato and haupia (coconut pudding) dish. I am also going to attempt a pumpkin flan. We'll see how that goes off. I'll let you know.
