"Get your boots on Virginia, were goin' camera shopin'."
Although my camera isn't as old as the one pictured here...it certainly felt like it at times, especially without a macro option (that word has become music to my ears).
It's quite possible I've paid the equivalent of two new cameras with all the batteries purchased over the course of time.
For any of you that have stock in Duracell batteries..."you're welcome."
"Holy macro " just think what I could capture in a single shot...
Wow, that would be one hard flash dot to shake from your retinas.
I'd be the envy of every paparazzi in Hollywood.
Due to the demise of my camera... I wasn't able to bring you all my personal favorite Thanksgiving confections. So, I'm bringing you a few samplings with a little help from my friends.
Here's a simple, but elegant gift for your host or hostess.
Preserves or compote jars adorned with a few autumnal embellishments.
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon rum (substitution- rum extract)
1. Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat, whisking constantly; boil, 1 minute. Remove from heat; gradually whisk in powdered sugar and rum until smooth. Whisk gently (or mix on low) 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture begins to cool and thickens slightly. Pour immediately over pumpkin cakes.
