Oh how I envy you. Our closest farmers market is across the harbor in another section of Boston. We had one, one year, but it never came back the next.

I also bought a freshly baked baguette and a candied ginger-lemon-pecan scone from a local bakery and fresh mozzarella made this morning by a local restaurant. I love our market

It's on the sidewalk outside the courtyard of the art & cultural center, which is in the original courthouse building from the 1750s. So cool

Right now my butt is very sore. And all from kicking myself. Why oh why did I tell my daughter I would make desserts for Christmas dinner?

A couple of days ago I was checking to make sure I had everything I would need for the chocolate chip cheesecake. I knew I had the cream cheese. But for the life of me I couldn't find it. So I had Spike pick me up some more. He brought me only two. I needed three. So I hunt for a recipe that can be adjusted. I have a smaller spring form pan that an adjusted recipe will fit in. I found one, and it called for five eighths of a 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk. Huh? Math is not my best subject. In fact it is not my subject in any manner. Still haven't figured it out. The original recipe called for an Oreo crust for the bottom only. The smaller recipe called to have the crust go up the sides. So I mixed the crust for the smaller one.

Then today I find the missing cream cheese. I had put it in the drawer so The Pirate wouldn't touch it. Good! Now I can make the big one and use the whole can of milk. No measuring out five eighths. I have the crust mixed, but not enough to go up the sides, but too much for the bottom. The bottom is going to get a much thicker crust than the recipe calls for. I am tired of all these problems making something for someone who doesn't even care. It is for my grandson. I got a bit ticked off last year when he demanded it for Christmas. A simple "Please" would have been nice.

Life is not fair!

Most of old Boston is built of red brick. The old courthouse in Cambridge is the ugliest red brick you can imagine. A beautiful building inside, but the outside has got to go!

I kinda like the old red brick, although our downtown has been "revitalized," so there are various types of buildings now. But here's a better pic of the courthouse. The Artisans booth there is Artisans Bakery & Cafe where I bought the baguette and scone.

Shrek loves those things. He buys three or four of them every Christmas. I have so many of those tins and he gets the big ones.

Well, if I can't make a go of it in Canada, I am heading out west.
