caramel tarte tatin

caramel tarte tatin, originally uploaded by candice quates.

A lovely french tart to distract from the lack of actual content, as I fear I've bored you all to death with viruses.

This was inspired by having read an assortment of recipes and piecing them together, and it's some caramel made in a No. 5 cast iron frying pan, two apples worth of pie filling and half of a tart shell crust on top. Baked for half an hour at 375 and flipped over, and it was awesome.

One day I will do the "how to make pie crust" post with bunches of pictures, but probably not in the summer; because you have to work so quickly in the heat, even when you have an air conditioned kitchen, that there isn't time to take pictures.

happy birthday susie

Today Susie is at least 10 years old. I declared her birthday to be June 1st years ago, as it was the best estimate I had for her age when I picked her up from the pound in Rochester in 2001.

The picture here is because she conned the wedding photographers into taking pictures of her while we got ready to go take portraits in the evening.

Clay is going to try to feed her steak tonight or something probably.
