baby showers!

Plum Apricot Puff Pastry Tart

1 (1-inch piece) vanilla bean, split lengthwise

1 tablespoon sugar

Pinch cinnamon

1 (1/2-pound) frozen puff pastry sheet, thawed

2 plums, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

2 fresh apricots, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices

3 tablespoons apricot jam, melted, strained, and kept warm

Vanilla ice cream, as an accompaniment, if desired

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Scrape seeds from vanilla bean with a knife into a small bowl, saving pod for another use, and stir in sugar and cinnamon.
On a lightly floured surface roll out pastry 1/8-inch thick and cut out 2 (6 by 5 1/2-inch) rectangles. Arrange pastry on a baking sheet and fold edges in on all sides to form 1/2-inch borders, leaving corners unfolded. Form points at corners by twisting ends and pressing them gently onto baking sheet. On pastry arrange plum and apricot slices, overlapping them slightly, in rows and sprinkle with sugar mixture.
Bake tarts in middle of oven until pastry is golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool tarts on a rack and brush with jam. Serve tarts warm with ice cream.

I Made this for the baby shower. It looked like pepperoni and sweet potatoes, but it was sooooo good! I got the recipe from foodtv.com!

Anyway, nothing new, except susanne and i get to hang out tuesday with sophie-poo! Woo hoo!
I even changed her diaper last time... i'm so good :).

Shout out to prego Lo!!!!

well folks, begining wheel throwing 1 is a lot harder than i thought. i knew it was going to be hard, but not THIS hard! I made a bowl right off the bat and it was rather good if i do say so myself. but then my next thing just fell over on the wheel, and #3 went from a bowl to a plate to something all weird and squiggly!

I will go in for more practicar later.

Sus and chris are ar an acorn fed pig farm!

Lauren is getting so prego it is cute!

Dad leaves for Panama tomorrow.

Cam is in Norman with his family while I sit here and be jealous.

that is all.
