1. I am not a jam fan, so the typical use for this tart fruit, making Damson jam or jelly, was out
2. I found a cake recipe that included blackberry jello as one of the ingredients and seemed like it would add up to a tasty cake.
However every time I went to pick a few more seeds out of the meat, there were a few more seeds. I'm not saying the seeds multiplied, but it certainly felt that way. And as the meat got more and more stirred around as I picked through, it coalesced, making it harder to see any more seeds. So in good conscience I could not give away a cake that would likely have teeth- busting seeds in them. And I certainly could not eat a whole cake myself. So scratch the cake idea.
3. They require too much sugar to make palatable. I don't like refined sugar.
So in the end I tossed it. I'll stick with peach cobbler. THOSE seeds you can see!
Report: New BBQ Restaurant in Danielsville:
Williams BBQ moved from their roadside stand to a nice new building with sit-down seating. They are located right next to my insurance agent, so yesterday after settling this year's vehicle policy I moseyed on over. The place was jammed. I loved the menu. Aside from the fabulous BBQ pork and chicken and sandwiches they are so locally famous for, there were a few other items which drew my attention as I scanned for a vegetarian entree. They offer veggie plates available from the lunch buffet and wait-served at table for dinner. In addition, here are a few other items:
Grilled cheese: $2
Tomato sandwich: $1.50
French fries: $1.50
It's nice to know you can still get a lunch for $3!!!
Your daily economic doom:
From George Ure's economic site: I love that he speaks in plain language. I can't understand most economic reports but George tells it like it is-
"In case you were sleeping through that Econ class, the idea with a fractional reserve financial system is that banks and depository institutions have reserves. But what the chart clearly informs us is that not only are the nation's banking reserves gone, but they are now funding their day-to-day operations on....tax dollars and printer's ink!" And never mind the NY Times reporting on the upcoming economic tsunami related to prime mortgages ...
The chart looks like a Brinks truck carrying US "money" drove off a cliff ... so the question of the morning is, have you stuffed your mattress yet?
