I was delighted to get this photo of my PA sweeties at the Warner Robins (Georgia) Air Force Base Aviation Museum. I was there many years ago and Jesse remembered my love of this Stearman on display. Papa, my dad flew one as a crop duster in Idaho in my childhood and I have such fond memories just looking at this restored bi-wing.
But even more delightful are the smiling faces I get to see in this picture. I'm sure they had a great Georgia Christmas with Christie's family.
Now, for the record, some syrup recipes so we can find them easier (yes, Becca, thinking of you).
7-8 T butter
3/4 c buttermilk
1 c sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1 t coconut extract
Place butter, buttermilk and sugar in a sauce pan. Over medium heat stir until sugar is dissolved and butter melted. Bring to a boil and boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and add baking soda and extract. It will bubble up - just continue to stir and give it a few minutes for the "fizz" to reduce before serving.
1 c sugar
1/2 c light corn syrup
1/4 c water
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 c whipping cream
In medium sauce pan stir all ingredients together EXCEPT cream. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 2 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in cream. Cool 30 minutes, Syrup will thicken as it cools. Serve warm.
