Super Band Yes Page is Up!

Finally the page Super Band YES is finished. Here is a link to the Salt Pepper Brilliant Facebook page where you can see a video I took in 2011 of them. They are performing “Yours is No Disgrace” at Penns Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA. I had such a blast!

Take a look at the page to get some background of YES and of them in my life plus some concert photos.

Watson Jay Clairemont the 3rd Esquire: Update!

20 Aug

Now who is this stranger with the fancy name? A Duke? A country gent? Nope, Watson Jay is a…possum!!! Haha yes it’s true, and no I am not ill. Around here in NEPA we have a lot of wildlife and sometimes we have regular visitors to our home. We have a female deer who returns to our woods every year to have her babies called Mama. We have the little rabbit that you already have been introduced to called Little Rock. Then there is Snefru the chipmunk, named after a pompous and bratty ancient Egyptian royal. Snefru is not afraid of anything even though he can potentially be dinner to pretty much every animal around here. And finally there is Watson the possum. Watson has been making regular appearances lately one of them being during the day yesterday. I found it odd seeing a nocturnal creature out in the day feverishly looking for food. Then it dawned on me, what if Watson is a Wilhelmina? The only time I have heard of possums being out in the day is when the mothers are looking for extra food for growing babies. She also had a funny gate which could indicate she had babies in her pouch. Well if this is true congrats to Watson (We will still call the possum Watson even if it is a girl, haha). We are quite familiar with animal babies around here. We have hade fawns, tons of bunnies, and even baby skunks. We don’t have a picture of Watson yet but once we do I will definitely post it. Have a great day everyone, new beauty post coming soon!!!

*******Update: Guess who I got a photo of!!!!********

Little Rock

Little Rock

This is a photo of a baby cottontail rabbit I took the summer of 2011 in NEPA. I watched this tough little guy grow up in my front yard. We named him Little Rock because he was very protective of his mother and would chase away any male rabbits. Even if the rabbits were twice his size! He wasn’t intimidated by me and actually let me get within five feet of him and his meal of yummy grass. He now is a fully grown adult who still lets me get close to him. He is a special little guy.—-CMY

Summer Sky

Summer Sky

This is a photo of the summer sky in NEPA. It is always filled with miles and miles of white fluffy clouds. I have an obsession with the sky just like I do with the sea. However, I never really get the chance to enjoy the sea so the sky takes its place for me. This is only one of thousands of sky photos I have. My goal is to be able to make one giant wall in my home a sky photo collage so I can have a piece of heaven right here on earth. Hope your day is wonderful.—-CMY (Photograph Property of Salt Pepper Brilliant CMY)

Giving the baked potato a seriously delicious makeover…yum!

30 Jan

       Ah, the baked potato in its sour cream and cheddar cheese topped glory. It is an American staple that is simply delicious, but what if you gave this quick lunch a makeover? One day I was craving a baked potato really badly. After seeing my father on my most recent visit have a baked potato every day for lunch I was really craving a spud.  However, I wasn’t really in the mood for the same old baked potato toppings. I wanted something exciting; something to really make the culinary angels sing. So I grabbed my bag and set my sites on the grocery store.

       The second I arrive I make my way to the cheese case. Now when it comes to cheese I am not picky. I don’t discriminate against any of these dairy delights, but I wanted something I don’t usually stock in my kitchen. There it was a wheel of triple cream goat cheese brie, what a beauty. So what can I have with this brie? Honey would be nice, but I’m not really seeing honey in my baked potato future. Then it hits me, dates! They would be perfect for my delicious experiment. Now I only hoped this store carried dates, and to my complete and utter joy they did.

       The second I arrived home I went to work, and so should you (hehe):

Date and Brie Stuffed Bake Potato

(AKA Best lunch ever!)

 

A potato per person medium to large in size

A wedge or a wheel of brie cheese

Dried dates, soaked in a little warm water so they can soften a bit

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Scrub and rinse your potatoes, leave the skins on. Prick your potatoes all over with a fork and wrap in foil. Bake your potatoes for one hour. Let them cool slightly then cut them lengthwise down the center without breaking the bottom skin. Season them lightly with salt and pepper. Now take a fork and stir up the flesh of the potato slightly. This will let all of the brie melt into all of the crevices.

        Add as much cheese as you like, and then add the dates. I leave them whole but you can chop them if you like. Close the potato around your filling and rewrap in the foil and place back into the oven until the cheese melts. I usually leave it in for about ten minutes. When finished unwrap and enjoy.

 

       This is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. The melting oozing brie with its salty goodness, coupled with the rich honey flavor of the dates is amazing. When I first came up with this combo (I’m not going to lie) I ate this for lunch three days in a row. It is just that good. Try it out for yourself and tell me how you like it! —-CMY
