Broiled Plums with Sour Cream and Honey

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We have been on the prowl for property to settle into for retirement, which has come for one of us, and the other of us (that would be me!) can negotiate in a couple of years. And now after being consistently frugal and level headed, we decided that while we will get what we want, we will do it the old fashion way, our way, the frugal way.

We have dreamed up about every scenario imaginable, some of which included:

Selling our current home in a thriving real estate market and walking in with cash to make a purchase, flat out! Yeah well, that didn't happen, so on to plan number two.....

Waiting until actual retirement for me. Yeah but the market where we want to live is coming out of a deep slow-down and now is the time for us to buy, as prices are rising and will continue, yikes! So on to plan three......

Taking an equity loan, finding a solid yet (very) needy fixer and just going for it! So we did. After thinking about where to retire we thought of staying in this area and living on a floating home, but that does not really work well for the entire lifestyle we hope to enjoy. We thought about a couple of smaller places and bouncing between the two, but again that does not work well for our intended lifestyle.

After much anguish, we took a day off (sort of, we were still dreaming about property on the water somewhere....) and hit the beach on the Washington peninsula and just like being struck by lightning, or in my case brought to sobbing tears, I knew immediately where I needed to go. Back home to the beach where I lived as a child.

This lake is a 5-minute walk from the house, east side.

This ocean is a 7-minute walk from the house, west side.

And this weekend we made an offer on that very needy fixer I mentioned earlier, and now we are at the mercy of the sellers.......but those pictures above? That's right the beach and the lake, well that little fixer has deeded access to those places.....

I don't wait well, but this morning I did make breakfast. This is a process more than a recipe, and a delicious way to use up fruit that is still deliciously healthy, but possibly a bit wrinkled. This also makes a great after-dinner dessert.....

Broiled Plums with Sour Cream and Honey
by the seat of my pants!

Fruit, peel or pit as needed - We used black plums
sugar - 1 to 2 teaspoons, to get the crusty goodness going under the broiler
Sour Cream or Yogurt
Honey, Jam or Cinnamon - or all three, after all, it is your breakfast!
