Twin Figs

August 28, 2011

Karen and I went to the movies today to see The Help! The movie was great – I laughed as much as I cried. Other than a poignant storyline and great characters, I really loved the vintage set – clothes, décor, furniture. I thought the movie was a fabulous adaptation of the book. When the […]

Morning all! I tried my hand at making Fig Oatmeal this morning. I basically substituted 3-4 baby figs for the banana. While they figs taste pretty sweet, they didn’t sweeten the oats nearly as much as a banana does. But it was still good. They also curdled the milk some, but by the time the […]
