Almost Maple Syrup

For those that can’t afford or get out to buy real maple syrup this spring.  Hers is a substitute.  Myself, I am in the process right now of making real maple syrup.  Tapped a few trees around my property, so shouldn’t be to long before I am having some of my wife’s home made pancakes covered with natures best.

1 c Brown sugar, Best to use raw sugar cane, tastes better and better for you.
1/3 c Water
1/8 ts Salt
1/4 ts Vanilla extract

In saucepan dissolve sugar in water. Add salt and boil for 1 minute. Add vanilla and mix well. Serve warm. Yield: 3/4 cup.

1/4 c Orange juice
2 tb Sugar replacement

Cook squash in small amount of boiling water until crisp-tender; drain. Melt butter in saucepan. Add orange rind, juice and sugar replacement. Cook over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Add squash; cover. Continue cooking until squash is tender.

Afgan Police Get Fundings From Canada. Can You Believe It?

You know I just can’t understand the thinking in the way we hand out our tax payers money.  Like this article.  Take A Look.

Canada will put $21 million toward the salaries of Afghan police and prison guards over the next two years, it was revealed on Tuesday.

In my eyes this will do nothing to help that country.  What they should be doing is looking after our own country.  We have to learn that it’s a selfish world.  We have to look after ourselves first then we can help others.  We got enough going on here in this country without looking after other countries. This image of peace keepers us Canadians is suppose to have should have never been started in the first place.  Peace keepers, nonsense, should be money giveres and the only reason we hand out money is to make money, but not for the tax payers. My Opinion Only, as  usual.
