Baked Alaska Day!

Well the first month of 2019 has passed us by and it has been a blur of activity but also a quiet month after the fun of November, December and Christmas.  DH and I visited Edinburgh twice in January for work and I was just a bit sad we were not continuing North to get to where we stay on holiday, but the way the months fly by it will soon be August!!!!!

Today, February 1st, is Baked Alaska Day!  Who knew that a dessert has its own day!  Anyway Baked Alaska was created by Charles Ranhofer, Chef at the famous Delmonico’s Restaurant in New York.  He created it to celebrate the United States purchasing Alaska from Russia in 1867!  I have eaten it a few times and find it to be quite sweet, so it is not one of my favourites, however it always fascinates me how the ice cream in the middle does not melt!  I have never tried to make it but may have a go one day!!!

I always feel better when January is over as I feel that January is like Monday morning!  You have a great weekend and then it’s Monday again.  So the same with the year; you have a great December and Christmas and then it’s January!!!!

When I was little I always felt that February was the longest month ever, even though it is short by three days (or two in a Leap Year!)

This weekend DH is compering a swimming event on Saturday evening but we have the rest of the weekend to get some more jobs done in our home!  Who knows what the weather is going to do, certainly not the weatherman!!!  We have had some snow showers today but it has not settled!!!

I hope you lovely lot have a wonderful weekend and if you are somewhere it is very, very cold, stay warm and safe.

Hugs, Susie xx

    With all the crazy our weather has…we are so blessed! A quilty-blog friend in northern Australia is dealing with flooding from a monsoon dumping 8″ of water in 6 hours…and it is expected to continue for at least the next week. Dams are spilling over and multiple pumps are going trying to keep the water from breaching their home. Further south in Australia, wildfires are tearing across the land. We get a mixed bag, but none is as awful as the floods, fires and killing cold being experienced elsewhere. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get some quilting time in!

    We have always wondered how the ice cream doesn’t melt too! If mom has ever had it, she doesn’t remember – so it couldn’t have left a great impression if she did. We have always felt that February was too long too. It must be because it’s still a winter month and can be bitter cold.
