a faulty recipe and Patrick Swayze
All of us potters live in the shadow of GHOST with Patrick and Demi. When I taught high schoolers in the mid-90s, day one of class I played THAT segment, so that students knew this was NOT like history or geometry. Pottery was fun, and wicked sexy.
So this evening I am sitting in the front of Kyushu, waiting for the rice, broccoli, the wee little avocado rolls and tempura takeout, and I read US magazine. They have pics of some starlet in LA in a tiny little black dress and UGG boots coming out of Costco with a 48 roll package of TP (MAN, is that a career killer or what????) and that is how I hear, or maybe I heard and forgot, that my man Patrick Swayze has pancreatic cancer???? Seems like pancreatic is the worst.
Patrick and his wife have been together through thick and thin since they were teenagers. He is handsome, she is beautiful, he is charming, he loves horses. We have to hope that Patrick....... anyway.
SO, I wanted to make peanut butter cups at home. Recipe number one tastes good but is a MESS. I will not share the recipe with you. Doesn't look much like peanut butter cups, DOES IT? Don't worry, next week I will try recipe number two which looks easy and perfect.
