Hi hi everyone! Lemoncello - lovely stuff. Brie omelettes. More yum. I used to sometimes indulge in brie macaroni and cheese.
Gwamma, it was about 1:15am here when you asked me what time it was, but I had practically fallen asleep on my keyboard.
I slept in this morning. It felt great.
While I love the Limoncello from Italy, I can make a very good imitation of it for about a third of the price, so I usually do that. Pretty simple: zest a lemon or two in strips (try not to get the pith as it's bitter), put the strips in a bottle of vodka. Everything I've read says it takes a week, but I get a nice lemony flavor overnight. If it's too sour, add a little sweetener of choice, and if you don't like it clear, squeeze a little lemon juice in it. I can make a liter for just under $8 compared to the $25 authentic one. Actually, any citrus zest works really well in vodka.
Gwamma, hope you don't have to sit on pillows for too long. But I bet the ride was tons of fun.
LL, what kind of newsletter do you do?
Sea, it amazes me how calm you are when the cat has a rat in the house. That would send me shrieking like an old 1950's comic strip woman standing on a chair. I loathe mice and rats. I'd rather see a snake in my house than a rodent. *shudder* We get little tiny lizards here, but they're so cute that if they come into the house, I catch them and release them outside.
