First get out your ingredients
and mix together per the recipe.

Then hang out around
the oven while they bake

Finish off the last batch while you wait

Here's the recipe. You can see from
my notes that I have reduced the
amount of sugar to 1 1/3 cups.
This batch I also used pineapple
juice instead of OJ and used lemon zest
instead of the orange zest.
Very yummy experiment.
Have fun in your kitchen!

Lucy is thinking to herself:
"When are my humans going to pay attention
to me? I want to go out on the balcony now !"
The humans are not about to let Lucy out
on the balcony because she jumped from the balcony
to the roof yesterday. Russell had to climb up a ladder
 and stuff her into a pillowcase to bring her back down.
Lucy promptly took a six hour nap.

I made a delicious dinner last night.
Instead of "Chicken Catch-a-Tory"
I made Chicken Ratatouille.
The eggplants, zucchini, onons,garlic, kale and stringbeans
all came out of the garden. I had to add store bought tomatoes
as all of ours are still green. It was yummy!
Tonight I will grill some more eggplants and zucchini
to go with the rest of our dinner.
