Simple Secret Snack, (3-M)


marias.JPGIt’s the little things that are sooo good. A fish caught on a fly I tied myself. A 100/10x with loads I developed myself. Running an extra mile and feeling good about it. The combination of tastes and textures selected for dinner that comes out perfect. And my favorite . . . 3-M.

3-m.JPGI don’t quite remember when I stumbled on it, but I know that it was about ten years ago. I’ve never seen any mention of a similar combination of tastes and textures.

I offer it here for your enjoyment. A roll of Marias Cookies, a jar of Smucker’s Sweet Orange Marmalade, and a sip of V. Sattui Madeira. (MariasMarmaladeMadeira)

You can serve this as an elegant dessert, if presented individually at table – or – just pile on the marmalade and sit in front of the fire – or – put a plate next to the computer and substitute fresh, cold, whole milk for the Madeira, (still 3-M.)

Do please try this – you’ll love it!


The Contemplative Angler is at it again. Bringing forth sensible and cogent concerns about the state of our sport. I enjoyed the wet flies immensely and now the thought of Catch & Retain is explored – nice.

“Without going into the origins of “Catch and Release”, its debatable ethos, its harm to the fish, its advancement of the fringe element of the Animal Rights movement, and the unnecessary suffering it inflicts upon the quarry, let’s examine its usefulness.”


Sara Anderson over at f-words has just posted a scrumptious sounding recipe using smoked blue cheese. It’s her husband’s, via “Vegetarian: The best-ever recipe collection edited by Linda Fraser.” Now all I need is some smoked blue cheese.
