Ice fishing tales...
Craft-making with Aunt Val...
Barbecued meat of every imaginable variety...
A slip and slide and one totally awesome dog which (heads up, Val) I am planning to dognap...
...and Baba Syrup. What is Baba Syrup, you ask? It is only the most mouth-watering, sinfully delicious waffle/pancake topping to exist in the history of the pancake-topping universe. And Val gave *me* her recipe. Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!
No, really. It's wonderful stuff. The only way to do justice to the marvel that is Baba Syrup is to write poetry about it.

So sweet and so sticky
(not that I'm being picky),
you're my new favorite condiment.
Pour you on rotten feet
And they'd taste like a treat,
I wouldn't give you up, even for Lent.
Not that I am a Catholic,
you just taste SO fantastic,
And nothing else rhymes with condiment.
[end of poetry]
I'm grateful to live in a country where our citizens are free to move to Canada for twenty years, collect delicious recipes from their Ukrainian neighbors, then move to Texas where they are free to wear a gun on their hip and share their recipes, but not to light a firework because that would be a class B misdemeanor.
Cue "The Star Spangled Banner."
(Thanks again for an awesome weekend, Val and Greg! You spoiled us rotten.)
