I went to see the ASS man...

TMI? Rolling your eyes? Well, stop and consider this, colon cancer screening is better done earlier rather than later . Given Hanna's predicament, my age and my grandfather's death from the disease, I decided that sooner was better. I was told that my colon was "spectacular". THANKS MOM for insisting on a fiber rich diet since I was about five or so. Everyone said the hardest part was the preparation, well, the hardest part of the prep for me was avoiding fruits and veggies for three days. OK enough about my insides.

I am stuck at home for the rest of the day, warned that if I drove and got pulled over within 18 hours after being under sedation I would be given a DUI. I am a bit light-headed, feel like I have been drinking all morning without the gastronomic effects of alcohol. So I am sitting here, too tired to work in my studio, too tired to do much of anything. Though I did put in a peach pie a few minutes ago (recipe below). I had a half a bushel of peaches from the orchard that were very ripe and my post the other day has had me longing for a fruit pie. SO, I made this easy prep version of peach pie:

In the processor:
2 cups of Honey Nut Cheerios
2 tbs Almond Butter
1 tsp cinnamon
Process until almond butter coats the cheerio crumbs (you will have a fine meal)
Press into pie pan

For the filling:
peel and slice 15 or so peaches
1 6oz container of PLAIN GREEK YOGURT with the following mixed in:
2 tbs Honey
1/4 tsp each of cardamom, nutmeg, cloves
1/2 tsp ginger

Layer the 1/2 the peaches in the pan, coat with the yogurt/honey/spice mixture, pile the rest of the peaches on top

Bake in 425 degree oven until bubbly

Considering this recipe is experimental, I didn't have graham cracker crumbs or a suitable oil to bind them... I used cereal instead. I also didn't have sour cream so I used yogurt. I used honey because its better for you than sugar. SO, I will let you know. It sounds good in my head? Unfortunately, though it still is very high in calories so a few bites will be all I am tasting.

OK, enough computer time. I am off to do some errands with Kenny. Its nice to spend the time with him.

Hello. This is the young man from Korea. Mine did end up being heat rash. I came home every day for about a week and a half and took cold showers, without using any soap. I could tell mine was heat rash because whenever I was in the AC, I didn't itch at all. If I would step outside for a minute or two, it would start to itch. So yes, mine was heat rash and since then, it has gone away.
