Pearl is a 'Jill of all trades' right now.
She's discovering what she's interested in doing when she grows up and she's also finding her way in her hobbies.
As of this writing. The grown up job will be marine animal something. Preferably, training. Preferably with Sea Lions.
The hobbies are wide and varied. It has always included art. Last year, quite by mistake, it became theater and singing.
Lately it has been decadent desserts.
The dessert to pictured above has a very simple title but a very complex taste. It's Figs in Puff Pastry. Please click on it, so you might enjoy all the yumminess you can via a photograph.
For those of us lucky enough to eat them, they are sinful.
We are lucky enough to have a wild fig tree growing not far from the house. Right now, these same figs are going in the grocery store for $9 a pound! The only price we pay for our figs are a few chigger bites. More than anything, we are amazed that the tree produced any fruit at all. We are 25 inches behind in our rainfall. The temperature has been over 100* at least 45 times since the beginning of May. Those things are not conducive for anything to grow, let alone a fruit bearing tree.
This recipe was harvested out of the latest issue of Good Housekeeping, but I'll repeat it here, since it's so easy.
Cut the puff pastry into equal size squares. Bake as directed on the box.
While they are baking, sweeten the yogurt to your liking with honey.
Once the pastry is cool, cut the figs into bite size pieces. Slice pastry in half, add a generous amount of honey sweetened yogurt and figs.
Drizzle with extra honey if you like.
As my sister says, "Sugar, Butter, Flour, what's not to like!"
This recipe has all three things. :)
