Let's all get fat!

We here at Radar Love would like to invite you all to get fat with us. This recipe that Angela made on a recent visit is really delicious... maybe it has something to do with the copious amounts of butter? Whatever the reason, it's better than apple pie.

Angela's “nothing diet about them” Apple Pastries

2 large Granny Smith apples
2 cans of 8 crescent rolls (dough)
1 ½ cups of sugar
1 ½ sticks of butter
1 tsp cinnamon
Mountain Dew (1 can will be more than enough)
Preheat oven to 350

Peel and slice apples into 8 equal slices each / 16 total
Wrap each piece in a crescent roll and place onto a large cookie sheet.
Bring sugar, butter, cinnamon to a boil for 1 minute.

Pour liberally over the apple rolls... use it all up!
Pour a little Mountain Dew over each of the rolls.
Bake for 45 minutes.

Just have a salad for dinner and it all ought to balance out (yeah right). Anyway, enjoy.

On another topic, I don't know if any of you have been following the comments over the last couple of days, but it seems that my dad and tia Sara and cousin Marco have entered into something of a mojito war of words. My dad seems to think that his Cuban blood and a mojito he had on a recent trip to Cuba (see picture) somehow make him an afficianado.

My aunt and cousin seem to think that just because they fixed their mojitos in a 90 gallon drum and people drank every last drop, that they are somehow the experts. Personally, I prefer a cold microbrew, but maybe someone else has their own opinions on the matter.

Lots of love,
Titi and Radar

Now now, I've never met a mojito I didn't like. In fact, I can go for a mojito and a apple crescent right now. drool....

If you google mojito, angostura bitters you get thousands of hits. Its true that angostura is not in the original recipe, but in Cuba its all the rage now. So there is the revolutionary red mojitos from Cuba and the exile, original cuban american mojitos. Maybe we need to have a world series of mojito making/tasting/winner take all at the next familily reunion.

Gosh, I wonder if the Pazos clan would be amenable to a mojito tournament at a family reunion? That's a tough one.

Pancho's recipe should be included. His take: yerbabuena, equal parts of sugar, lime and rum and a splash of soda. But here's the kicker: He blends it and then strains it. The result: A green drink free of the leaves debris which some people find annoying, but with a wonderful minty taste. We should definitely have that competition!

Nobody answered Lizzie. Shame on you unifocused guzzlers. Crescent dough is croissant dough. You elite kiwis probably haven't updated to English. We're a manly culture not given to foufou terminology. Great doubt has arisen about Barack Obama here-not about his financial rescue plan-but that he put Dijon mustard on a hamburger. Ya think I'm kiddin'? Check Fox News.

As an act of protest against FAUX News, for breakfast tomorrow, I will be eating croissants dipped in Dijon mustard.

DISCLOSURE: The Grey Poupon I have is in a plastic squeeze bottle, so I'll probably just squirt the Dijon mustard on the croissant.

I believe the issue is that he ordered the burger medium-well, not that he squirted mustard into his bitters laden mojito...
