Do You See What I See?

Here we are the Sunday before Christmas when our thoughts should be turning towards peace on earth, goodwill towards men and what do we get instead? A snarky little piece in one of our most reliable left-leaning propaganda outlets. In an article titled “Today we are gathered…to hear more about me”, the author notes that “Obama likes to see events through the lens of his own life’s chronology.” And then she impertinently proceeds to demonstrate:

Someone needs to tell Barack Obama—it must get particularly confusing this time of year—that his own birth is not Year One, the date around which all other events are understood. His much-noted, self-referential tic was on cringe-worthy display Friday when the president gave his eulogy for the late Sen. Daniel Inouye, who served in Congress for half a century representing Obama’s birth state of Hawaii.

While Slate is not the first to note how inappropriate BO’s self-centric eulogy of Senator Inouye was, it’s certainly the first liberal rag to drop a piece of coal in his sock. In return, the publication received this Holiday token from the Big White:


Plus, they were required to return the official T-shirt they were issued at the DNC.

Expect an apology and/or retraction shortly after the New Year.

And now back to our normally scheduled programming: another sweet treat for breakfast. This one is brought to you by MOTUS’  little sister who skipped the partridge and went for the fruit of the pear tree. A delicious make-ahead.

Pear Gruyere Strata

4 c. sliced peeled Anjou pears

2 tsp. butter, melted

6 tbsp. granulated sugar, divided

12 slices cinnamon swirl bread cut in half diagonally

Cooking spray

1 cup 4 ounces shredded gruyere cheese

1 1/2 cups milk

1 c. eggs

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 tbsp. turbinado (or regular) sugar

½ c. maple syrup

Combine pear, butter, and 1 tbsp. sugar in a large bowl, toss gently.

Arrange half of bread in an 11 x 7 inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon pear mixture evenly over bread; top evenly with cheese. Arrange remaining bread over cheese.

Combine the remaining 5 tbsp. granulated sugar, milk, egg, and cinnamon, stirring with a whisk. Pour milk mixture over bread, pressing down to submerge. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover dish. Sprinkle the  tbsp. of turbinado  (or regular) sugar evenly over bread. Bake at 350 for 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Let stand 10 minutes. Cut into 8 pieces, drizzle with syrup.

Great with bacon and/or sausage.

Musical interlude:

Said the night wind to the little lamb,

cauliflower sheep

do you see what I see

Way up in the sky, little lamb,

obama sheep 

do you see what I see

A star, a star, dancing in the night


With a tail as big as a kite

butt the seats are roomy and comfortable

With a tail as big as a kite

As you know, I could go on and on, butt as a special pre-Christmas treat, I won’t. Now get out there and bake some cookies!
