I have been a wife and mother for over twenty years. Now I am becoming my husband's lover, too.
We owe it all to my fellow bloggers who gave me the courage to come out to my husband as a spanko.
I do feel like this is a New Beginning for us.

Well I can cook -- if I have to!


Eva implied the other day that I did not cook. Well not so much implied as stated it implicitly. Well actually she is right, I don’t. But I can. I just don’t like to. We will be at my in-laws for our Thanksgiving meal tomorrow. Although my MIL is perfectly capable of doing the meal herself we all try to bring something. Usually somewhere between those volunteering for breads, desserts, sweet potato casseroles and stuffing I will volunteer to bring the plates and cups.

But this year I am actually bring food and so I am giving you my recipe. Well it’s not my recipe; it’s something my mom used to make.

Curried Fruit

¾ stick butter or margarine

1 Cup packed light brown sugar

1 tsp curry powder

1 can of the following fruits

peaches

pears

pineapple (sliced or chunk)

1jar spiced apples

Maraschino cherries

Mix butter, sugar and curry powder and bring to boil. Drain fruit and arrange in a baking dish. Pour hot sauce over fruit. Bake at 350 until it bubbles (about 30 to 40 minutes). Serve hot.

Not exactly diet food but it smells fantastic and it is also pretty dish. I think it’s best if you are cooking at home. It can be a little messy to transport. But I usually do it anyway.

I am not going to put up a Fantasy Friday this week. Sorry folks but some very good stories have been submitted and I don’t want these stories to get lost in the hustle and bustle of traveling and holidaying! But come by I will post something for those of you out and about in blog land over the Thanksgiving holiday. Nothing spectacular but since I won’t have to spend a lot of time cooking I will see who is here. Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. That sounds really really good and I think if I made it with fake brown sugar I could eat it.

    I'm so excited for Thanksgiving even though I won't be eating much. In fact, I'm looking forward to a couple casseroles I plan on making over the next couple days also. Maybe I should post those recipes? Hey, now there's a thought... you just inspired me!!!

    Thanks twin!!!
