Fall is in the Air (and on the ground, too.....)
I love the twirly top on this sweetmeat squash. The squash grew fine, but it's been a weird garden year - too much humidity or something and lots of the veggies grew strangely or not at all.
Today we canned up the potatoes that are too small to keep long. The King apples are about ready to be pie filling but today is a cancer treatment day for my mom and a bit of grocery shopping, too.
Just mash up some cooked spuds with an egg, a little flour, some grated cheddar and garlic....drop by spoonfuls into your deep fryer (you DO have a deep fryer, don't you???) and keep warm in the oven until......
Easy peasy, boss.
Autumn, falling leaves, cooler days....pumpkins & squash, flannel shirts, warm sox!! A bit of melancholy always goes along as we reflect on the changing seasons - both the calendar seasons and the changing seasons of life.
Psalm 118:24 says, “This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
