camera dump

 My new FAVORITE mug.  It's cream colored.  It's big.  It cost me 49 cents!!

 The big four-oh and a forty-four magnum!  What a pair!

 This was supposed to be Hubby's birthday cake.  Old Fashioned Nut Cake from Eula Mae's Cajun Kitchen.  I call it the half-baked cake.  Daughter is really the only one still eating eat.

Orange Cranberry Maple Syrup over a special waffle.  The syrup was good the waffle not.

**edited with the recipe**
Cranberry Maple Syrup
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 c pure maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoon orange juice
3 tablespoons water
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt

Combine the cranberries, maple syrup and oj in a medium saucepan.  Cook over medium-high heat to bring to a boil.  Boil for 3 minutes.  Meanwhile, stir the cornstarch into the water.  Add the cornstarch mixture to the syrup and continue to boil for 2-3 min or until cranberries are tender.  I "smooshed" some of the cranberries.

If  the syrup is not thick enough for your liking, add a teaspoon or two more of cornstarch while the syrup is cooking until desired thickness is reached.

Syrup will last 3-4 days in the frig.
