Fig and Oat cookies.

This looks like the best. Reduce the sugar a little and add some mixed nuts: walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple sugar (use the real stuff)
1 egg

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup rolled oats

the bean dish in Rioja, with Baigorri red wine  ref: http://www.cellartours.com/blog/spain/wine-tasting-site-inspection-in-la-rioja

Baigorri restaurant

Appetizer/Starter: Alubias del pais con morcilla (in the photo above, this is a simple and delicious country dish made with local beans, blood pudding and tangy Guindilla peppers), paired with the Baigorri Crianza (juicy red, loved it)

Entre/ Main Course: Carillera de Ibérico al maceración Carbónica con hongos (slow cooked Iberian pork jowl cooked in young wine and mushrooms- paired with the Baigorri Garaje (Garage wine, their top wine, very good) and we also tasted their Reserva wine (actually preferred the Crianza to the reserva, but Garaje was favorite of them all).

Dessert- Cremoso de yema con yogurt, frutos rojos y helado crujiente- too many calories to describe, lovely

Humble Me

“Humble Me”

Went out on a limb
Gone too far
Broken down at the side of the road
Stranded at the outskirts and sun’s creepin’ up
Baby’s in the backseat
Still fast asleep
Dreamin’ of better days
I don’t want to call you but you’re all I have to turn to

What do you say
When it’s all gone away?
Baby I didn’t mean to hurt you
Truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
No matter how hard you resist it
It never rains when you want it to

You humble me, Lord
You humble me, Lord
I’m on my knees, empty
You humble me, Lord
You humble me, Lord
So please, please, please forgive me

Baby Teresashe’s got your eyes
I see you all the time
When she asks about her daddy
I never know what to say

Heard you kicked the bottle
And you helped build a church
You carry an honest wage
Is it true you have somebody keeping you company?

What do you say
When it’s all gone away?
Baby, I didn’t meant to hurt you
Truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
No matter how hard you resist it
It never rains when you want it to

You humble me, Lord
You humble me. Lord
I’m on me knees empty
You humble me, Lord
You humble me, Lord
So please, please, please forgive me
You humble me
