Mama’s Patriotic Fruit Tart

Happy 4th of July!

Our house has been a buzz with excitement today, not only for the festivities going on tomorrow to celebrate Independence Day, but also because my pet Dairy Cow, “Jemimah” is going to have a baby calf anytime now! I thought for fun, that I would ask you all if you have any suggestions for girl names for the calf. Feel free to post any names you think might be good! I will let you know if I pick yours in a few days! Now, I know this is a “cooking blog”, but I just couldn’t resist telling you about this special event. 🙂

Now, for the quote of the day!

“Blessed is he who has learned to laugh at himself for he shall never cease to be entertained.” ~John Boswel
