Pear Vodka ~ Vietnamese Fish ~ Jean ~ Lovella ~ Hot Mulled Cider

Good 46º supposed to be slightly cloudy morning. Another 90º day. Come on Fall!!!!

And can you believe it....this is the END of September! Where did this month go???? Do you realize how close Christmas is?

I have finished the infusing of the vodka with the pears. OMGood! In one jar I put some cinnamon sticks. That's good too. Going to share with my friends. And by the way, the pear pieces I took out of the vodka are POTENT! Yummy.

You might want to watch this 4 minute video of the Vietnamese fish farms. If you buy fish from Viet Nam, catfish, talapia, be warned. Check the packaging to see where the fish comes from. In restaurants, ask. This from my friend George Bachmeier.....

Yesterday was a surprise birthday luncheon for Jen's mom Jean. Jean turns the big 70 on 10-3 so Jen fixed a bunch of food, made a fabulous carrot cake, and we all had mimosas and lots of chatting....

National Hot Mulled Cider Day

With this 'still too hot' weather we are having, I think the mulled cider will have to wait for cooler days....
