Heat ~ Mowing and Trimming ~ Golf Cart ~ Unusual Pals ~ Baby Bird ~ Leftover Remake ~ Pralines

Good 56º clear sunny morning.

The temps yesterday progressed ... by noon it was  89º ... and late afternoon it was 102º! Today will be hotter.

Yesterday breakfast was the left over chicken fries, ear of corn, and a couple hard-boiled eggs...

I started trimming a few rose bushes and grapevines....

Mike got hear early and started weed-eating and mowing.

Dude was happy to lay in the shade and keep an eye on him!

I called the golf cart guy saying I hadn't heard from him and had called him Tuesday. He apologized, is recovering from surgery, has had to deliver many carts for graduations and golf tournaments, etc. He said he'd be here after lunch.
I got it out and waiting...

I park my golf cart on the back patio and this was taken before Bruiser became part of the family. I'd put food in the back of the golf cart for him. He'd show up and eat it and disappear again. LOL, now he's in charge of everything around here!!!!

Daryl showe up about 1pm and got the golf cart...

This is a very unique trailer he uses to transport the carts. You unlock one side and then he just backs up his truck and it pushes the deck off the body. Also, interesting, he had a cart he was taking back to his shop that belongs to the son of the man Mike's dad used to work for!

You know how Dude loves to run when I drive the golf cart, so the look on his face as it went away was like "why????"

Did you know that originally praline was roughly a sweet confection made of almonds and caramelized coating?

Food Facts of Pralines:

  1. Praline is a type of candy made from nuts and sugar syrup, whether in whole pieces or a ground powder.
  2.  Although the stories surrounding the creation differ, it is widely agreed that pralines are named after French diplomat from the early 17th century whose name and title was César, duc de Choiseul, comte du Plessis-Praslin.
  3. French settlers brought this recipe to Louisiana, where both sugar cane and pecan trees were plentiful. During the 19th century, New Orleans chefs substituted pecans for almonds, added cream to thicken the confection, and thus created what became known throughout the American South as the praline.
  4. In New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast, where there are many communities settled by the French, the pronunciation is prah-leen, with the long aaah sound. Other regions of the country, including parts of Texas, Georgia, and New England have anglicized the term and pronounce it pray-leen.
  5. In Europe, the praline has evolved to an entirely different candy altogether. In Belgium and France, praline is a smooth paste of cocoa blended with finely ground nuts and used to fill chocolate bon-bons, but when it came to New Orleans it took another road.
