Reading by the window
Acrylics on masonite- 8 x 10 inches
Ok. So I am the Queen of the Snail's Pace.
All my life, it's true.
I am not bothered by this anymore (sort of). I try to work with it.(try)
Like I seem to dicscover some good things very late in the game .
Such as making a super moist, not too sweet, very peachy, peach clafoutis.
Of course I should have been making this already for years now.
Still...maybe it's sweeter that way...
And I made this darling treat, because I was so very
inspired by Alicia's blog from the thoroughly delightful 'Posie Gets Cozy'.
Again I am probably the last person in the blogging world to have come across her blog,
but maybe I came about it just at the right time.
You see apart from being 'slow', I am also very happy to be home and
stay home, and sit quietly in my corner and do my thing, paint. I don't need parties, or
too much social interaction at all. Indeed all activities that are out-of-home, are almost painful to me.
This always caused me great amounts of guilt, which
Alicia has totally thrown all out
the window for me, she had indeed 'healed' me from a load of nonsense it seems.
Thank you Alicia, you are indeed so very clever, and so very talented, and so
very happy at home...!
As for the clafoutis (Alicia seems to like clafoutis too),
I read three or four different recipes, and then did my own thing.
1 cup half/half
1 cup all purpose flower
1/2 cup brown sugar
1,5 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
Preheat at 375*
Slice the peaches and put them on a greased round 9inch baking dish.
Mix everything else starting with the sugar and eggs.
Pour gently over peaches.
Bake for ten minutes at 375* and then lower the temperature at 350*
for about forty minutes .
Some people cover the baked clafoutis with icing sugar.
I just put a nice spoonful of whipped cream over each slice.
Now all are content and happy (at home)-
