Chop cucumbers. As many as you want. I think I had 4. Put half a container (approx 8 oz) of plain yogurt on top of that. Make sure you get the yogurt with the arabic label from the international grocery store. Oh my, is it ever yummy. Have I ever told you people how much I love dairy products? I could eat it plain with a spoon. I could also do that with sour cream and wash it down with whole milk, but I digress. Rip up some little pieces of cilantro and toss that on top. Put the lid on the tupperware and shake it until everything is pretty much evenly coated. Eat. And eat. And eat.

Melt 1 stick o'butter in a 13x9 glass pan. I don't know the temperature. Supposed to be 375, but my oven is way way off, so I put it at 450. I really need to get an oven thermometer and see just how off it is.

Mix 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugah, 1 cup milk, 1/4 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a bowl.

Once the butter has melted, pour all this stuff in the glass pan. It will look soupy, that's all ok. Patience, child.

Add 2 cans of apricot halves. I used the lite kind in pear juice. Also one can o'peaches. Again, I used the light can in juice. Not that syrupy spooge.

Bake until done.

Serve to self and other person of choosing. Eat half the pan. Swear to be good until after dinner. Go out to Botanical Garden. Rationalize making pot of coffee when you come home so you can have more cobbler. Make pot of coffee. Ignore it. Eat rest of cobbler.

Happy Fun Potato Wedges

Get you some good bakers.

Run them under water, remove the worst of the eyes and blemishes, run them under water again.

Cut them in half the long way. Now take those halves and cut them in thirds the long way. Put the potatoes "back together" and then wrap them in aluminum foil (they're still damp, right?). Put them in the oven for 3-4 hours at 325.

Take the potatoes out and unwrap them. Set the oven to 450. Break apart the potatoes and put them on a pan that has aluminum foil on it. Sprinkle cheese and bacon on top of the potato wedges. Place back in the oven for 10 minutes.

Serve the wedges with sour cream.
