My sister owns a dinosaur. Actually it’s a parrot, but she’s a little bit frightening and there's something prehistoric to her. Her name is Bruja (‘Witch’ in Spanish), she likes to dance and will only let my sister touch and hold her. For some reason she doesn't really like our mom, flies at her hair whenever she visits. She loves to eat corn tortillas and to be carried by my sis on her shoulder like a pirate. She also does a killer car alarm impression. Below is a photo of Bruja attempting to murder my camera… not a fan of photographs.
Also ‘Boat Behind’ the new video and single off of the Kings of Convenience latest album, Declaration Of Dependence, set to be released on October 20th. Can't hardly wait!
Lastly, Coconut-Stuffed Lemons. One of my most favorite of sweets:
THINGS YOU’LL NEED
2 cups of shredded sweetened coconut
1 ½ cups of sugar
-green food coloring
(1) Scrape zest of lemons until almost all is gone. (2) Boil for 10 minutes, remove from water and cut a thin slice off the top and slice almost all the way through. (3) Remove all pulp and submerge in water with food coloring, boil for another 10 minutes. (4) Mix coconut and 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of water, cook on low heat until coconut is soft and syrupy. (5) Fill lemons with coconut mixture. Serve warm or cool in fridge first, but I prefer cool. ♥
