this cobbler. Now, I really prefer the kind of cobbler my mom and grandma used to make, which was more of a square or oblong pie; you know, with top and bottom pie crust. Unfortunately, that would mean we'd be consuming several tablespoons of shortening with each piece, and we don't need that.
I thought about making peach crisp, but in my experience the crispness doesn't last. It's only "crisp" right after you make it.
So I made this kind of cobbler with the shortcake topping; it'll be wonderful with just a little vanilla ice cream.
Because Cliff gets up at 10 A.M. and leaves at 2:30, it's hard to squeeze in breakfast and dinner; often he'll have just a tiny bit of breakfast to tide him over. But sometimes, when I am planning a more elaborate dinner, he gets dinner almost as soon as he's out of bed. I cooked one of the roasts from our butchered steer overnight in the crock pot (it's unbelievably tender). This always leaves lots of tasty juices with which to make gravy. I peeled some potatoes from the garden, and I will cook some sort of vegetable to go with this.
We'll be eating by 10:30. The worst thing about having dinner for breakfast is that we take our walk after breakfast; we will have some full bellies, walking in the heat of the day. It's really hard to keep up the daily walk when we don't get out there until 11:30 with temperatures already hitting 90 degrees.
I have good news from the garden front:
I also have bad news on the garden front: I found a squash bug on the zucchini plant that is almost ready to produce. I sprayed, but that hasn't helped much in the past. Oh well, I get an "E" for effort, right?
