Smoke ~ Rice Cake Breakfast ~ Antipasto Stuffed Bread ~ Peach Liqueur

Good 58º some clouds morning.

Smoke filled the valley all day yesterday. It was choking. Also it was 96.2º. I didn't let PJ's cats out in that. Too icky. My pups and cat stayed in except to go out for potty duty.

Breakfast yesterday was rice cakes, melted cheese, avocado, and Baconaise! YUMMMMM!!!

Good Lord! Help us!

All I know. Hairdo day here. Then depending on the weather.... dinner out ... or in. Applegate Ranch is a choice unless thunderstorms, then a restaurant in town. Nuff said. Ciao.

Eat A Peach Day
(Ok, I can do that!)

... and going to make this:
      Yield: 1 liter

     12 med Peaches
      4    Lemon peel strips, scraped
      1    Cinnamon stick
      3 c  Vodka
      1 c  Sugar syrup *see recipe below 
  You want yellow or cream-colored peaches. Season is May to Sept.
  Avoid green ones as they won't ripen at home. Peel peaches and cut in
  quarters. Combine with vodka, lemon peels, and spices in covered jar
  and store for 1-2 weeks, shaking occasionally. Strain fruit,
  squeezing as much juice as possible, and filter. Add sugar syrup and store for an additional 6 weeks. Yield: 1 liter
            Container: Wide mouth gallon jar


2 parts sugar

1 part water


  1. Bring the water to a boil.
  2. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water, stirring constantly.
  3. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. (Note: Do not allow the syrup to boil for too long or the syrup will be too thick.)
  4. Allow to cool completely and thicken.
