A very special Blossom...

A post your family cannot afford to miss...

It's okay to say gay*...

I know!

Bonus factoid: It's okay to say ghee now too.  Julia Child is dead.  Beurre noisette or clarified butter is much too complicated to say.  Just say ghee, and your Indian friends will be pleased.

* I noted that already after the Pope said it. What?


  1. Now I'm hungry for fried butter. Is the Iowa State Fair still going on?

  2. No - but Minnesota's starts in a few days - come on up!

    1. I could use a Pronto Pup (or three.) Waaaaaaay better than a corn dog...

      BTW - Ghee and clarified butter are not exactly the same thing. Ghee is clarified butter that has been cooked longer to remove all the moisture, and the milk solids are browned (caramelized) in the fat and then strained out. This gives a rich nutty taste. I make ghee all the time. Love it!

    2. I know - I stretched the truth just a bit - noisette is actually browned butter.

    3. Silly me!! My reading comprehension is poor early in the morning.

  3. I'll call Clare McCaskill and hitch a ride; I hear she's making the rounds. :p

  4. Deep fried and on a stick.
