The Republican Party of VA has rejected an application by Women’s Strike Force to sponsor a table at the Virginia Republican Convention this weekend. RPV says they “lost” the application of the new VA-based pro-choice PAC led by Republican Katherine Waddell. The Women’s Strike Force is dedicated to defeating VA lawmakers determined to highjack women’s rights and reproductive health. More about WSF.
If he was alive, Thomas Jefferson would be inviting the Women’s Strike Force folks to Monticello. Not only was abortion legal and widely advertised, when America was founded.
Founding father Thomas Jefferson was also a firm believer in the separation of church and state and worked to RESOLVE conflicts among delegates
Here is a Monticello recipe for Peach Cream, Thomas Jefferson Style.
Thomas Jefferson was fond of ice cream. This recipe for Peach Cream is based on one found in Marie Kimball’s book about Monticello.
If you don’t have one of those shiny things MItt Romney’s advisor talks about in your kitchen, get out the potato masher or a mighty fork. A hand mixer will also do the job for those without a Cuisinart.
6 ripe peaches
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups cream
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1. Peel peaches. To easily remove skins, bring 5 inches of water to a boil in a stock pot. Put peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove and put into an ice water bath. The skins should practically slip off.
2. Slice peaches in half and remove pits. Cut into small chunks and place in a medium bowl.
3. Sprinkle sugar over peaches. Stir and let mixture sit for about 15 minutes to “juice”.
4. Use a fork, potato masher, hand blender, or food processor to turn peaches into smooth pulp.
5. Stir in cream, salt, and almond extract. Chill and freeze according to ice cream maker’s instructions.
