BLD No. 2 (2)

I told Angelique I wanted her cranberry sauce recipe and she laughed. ‘Mom it is the recipe off of a bag of cranberries.’ That doesn’t matter I tell her. I love it and you make it and so I want to share it.

I laughed last night when I got the recipe because I told Angelique even with the news we got; the show must go on with my blog and so when she sent me this, she called it ‘The show must go on.’

Cranberry Sauce

¾ cup white sugar
1 cup water
1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the water. Stir in cranberries and cook until they start to pop (about ten minutes). Remove from heat, and transfer to bowl. Cranberry sauce will thicken as it cools.

I add a little orange zest to mine and just a shot of lemon juice. That really puts the show on the road. Oh, Lovee. **heart sinks** Deb

A million kisses. xoxo

Yeah, that's what I do too...I love orange in mine. In fact, this year I made some with a few kumquats in there, but next time I take the insides out of the kumquats, they're a bit tart (strange, how the peel is the sweetest part.)

don't know what else to say - I'm still hung up on your test results...

The show MUST go on.
What a brilliant woman your daughter is ;)

I think that recipe is too difficult for me to follow.

I'd love to see those balls all lit up in a snowy field. What a sight that would be!
And pinwheel macaroni snowflakes!
How cool is that?

The top one makes me sad.
I don't like faceless characters. And they don't have noses so how could they possibly Eskimo kiss?
And no hands?
Must be the Winnipeg temps.

Do you know that I'm in denial?
I am.

Sue said...

"The show must go on".........LOL, have to say that I love your 'routine' Renee! The sauce looks pretty good too.


Jasmine said...

The show must go on, and Renee, you do it beautifully. Sending healing thoughts xxx

Daria said...

I sure love the pics .. all the best to you girl!

secret agent woman said...

This may sound silly but I never knew the recipe was on the bag.

Marie said...

That recipe on the bag is the best. Sometimes I add a bit of orange juice instead of water and some chopped candied ginger. Lovely.

momcat said...

Yum. I've never eaten cranberries but you may have convinced me. I agree 100% with that comment, that 'The Show Must Go On'. I firmly believe that we are not what our bodies are going through, we are more than that. We are only temporary residents in these shells and sometimes they are as fragile as eggshells but our spirits are strong and one day they will soar. You will handle this as you have handled other bad news and you will carry on. Such is the human spirit, that trouble and tragedy can only make us stronger and more resilient! Have courage my friend and remember that the world hears you and holds you in our hearts.

Isabel said...

I do the same recipe but had clover and orange zest to mine.

From today on, I will definitely adopt your daughter's name for the recipe.

I'll call it Renee's The Show Must Go On



Sarah said...

LOL Renee..this is my kids favorite Thanksgiving treadition..simple but fun..they love to hear the berries pop...

Baino said...

OH Sweetheart it's way too hot for Turkey but I'll keep it for Christmas in July. Actually don't underrate frozen berries. I always have them in the freezer, usually raspberries which are very expensive here cos it's too warm to grow them in most places. Great with ice cream. (shhh . . don't tell anyone I have ice cream)

It is also very good with honey instead of sugar.
Best recipe ever!
