Got Milk?

A true mother

St John, Virgin Islands. This was an ongoing site there; A cow nursing a baby pig. It has been going on for as long as I can remember. Not sure which cow started it or why. It is not all the cows, usually you will just see one cow nursing a pig. These are Moses’ cows who lives in the valley, Cows run free so it is common to have to wait for them to cross the road.

Pumpkin Blossom Sandwiches, YUM!!!

Fall has arrived, it’s time to make a pumpkin blossom sandwich.
The pumpkin blossoms can be picked early in the morning, before 9am.

Take out stamen, soak in Tupperware of water, just enough to cover.

When ready to fry them up just dip them in flour and fry in small amount of oil.

Once crisp, put on piece of soft bread (soft oatmeal by Pepperidge Farm is my favorite), add mustard and you have a delicious sandwich.

I grew up eating these and have passed it down to my kids, they also love them..

While looking for a blossom picture I found this fun blog, http://www.mybitofearth.net

She happens to also have an article about fried blossoms. I love it! We fry ours flat verses hers look like they were picked closed. They also look yummy.
