The boot option

Tags: ,

Trial boot with "lace race"

You really can’t call this a boot.  It’s a shoe but I’ve snugged the top right up against the bottom of my ankle bone to help stabilize my foot.  This design really works.  I run around outside and don’t even notice I have them on.

I’d like to thank Larry Anderson for the “lace race” term.  It’s perfect.

Now that I know this design works I’m going to make a “real” pair.

Recipes

Squash Season

Tags: ,

A slice off the side of a cube of butter, some maple syrup and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Awesomely delicious squash

In one of our rare outings, Wadly and I had dinner at one of our local eateries. They served squash wedges with a seasoned butter that made the squash taste like pumpkin pie. It was delicious. LouAnn says it was hubbard squash. I’ve duplicated the taste in both acorn and spaghetti squash.

Wadly will even eat this squash, and he is so not a squash fan.

This is a dead easy recipe.  Drop in a slice of butter, add a couple tablespoons of real maple syrup, sprinkle a little cinnamon and nut meg on top the butter and bake.
