The porch thermometer read 110 degrees in the shade this afternoon. You can't breath, walk very far or DO ANYTHING.
IT'S SO HOT...
that cows are giving evaporated milk.
that hot water is coming out of both taps.
that chickens are laying fried eggs.
It’s So Hot That People Are Baking Cookies on Their Dashboards.
OK, I just had to add some levity to this post. I think I got it out of my system.
We didn't even take a walk this morning because we didn't get an early enough start.
Yesterday we walked the river road. It was warm, but tolerable.
Yea, Winter......... Oh, Winter.... cold days... sweaters... maybe some snow... boots... frost on the pumpkins... rain... homemade soup... NO RATTLESNAKES... and long walks up to the ridge. Sorry... just a bit of nostalgia...reminiscing about a distant time and place.To drown my sorrows, I came home and made a Blackberry Galette before the heat hit. I didn't get a photo of it until this...
here. It's a good one.
My cousin and I made one up at her Tahoe house and we made it from scratch. It was much tastier. Please try the recipe pastry. It's very good.
All the same... the Jackson version didn't last any longer that the Tahoe version. I added some blueberries to the blackberries. You can add anything that you like. I also used some lemon zest in the fruit.
There are all kinds of savory Galettes too with potatoes, vegetables and meat. ( Here's a little information for you.)
It's easier than pie.
Now you know... We will survive this summer with Galettes...
Do you need any tomatoes?
