Since retirement, my Sweetheart has proven to be quite adept in the kitchen. Some of his specialities are:
- Peanut brittle
- Shrimp Etouffee
- Omelets (breakfasts – each day of the week!)
- FIG PRESERVES!
Recently, Hubby and Oldest Colorado Grandson went fig-gathering – filching figs from a friend’s tree. The result of this excursion provided delicious fig preserves – bless my husband’s heart (and cooking skills!).
I never had it so good!!
Our first home in Seguin had a large yard with a great many trees; one of the trees was a loquat tree.
I recall the delicious loquat jelly Hubby made one year; however, gathering loquats is a bit different from gathering figs (much more labor intensive with the smaller loquats).
Ah – I love a man in the kitchen!
