Both were yummy and now I need to buy more raisins and cinnamon so I can keep the big guy happy with his favorite bread.
Our fruit trees are full this year and have Pears and Apples galore.
Pears and a German Shepard butt photo bomb.
There will be lots of canning going on in the Fall. Lots of jars of yummy pears, that I can't eat and apple sauce and pie filling that I can eat.
Finally got most of my garden planted this month and it's 90% tomatoes with 80% of those being Roma tomatoes for making Spaghetti Sauce. The other 10% is six bell pepper plants and three cucumbers. I think I need another garden plot in the yard someplace.
I transplanted my Parsley last week, but that didn't go so well, I'm still waiting to see how many will take and start growing I know I lost at least half if not more. Back in April I was super surprised to find that my Garlic Chives had regrown and I've already been able to harvest once and soon will do cutting number two.
I was ecstatic to find that my Blueberry bushes had started to come back. This is one of two that I planted last year the second one only has one little branch that has sprouted new growth, but at least they came back. Maybe I'll be able to get a couple more this year and some blackberries to.
Well .... that's all for now, so until next post ......
All week long I've been watching storms roll in, the wind blow and the rain come down. Enough rain that I have had to empty the 55 gallon rain barrel twice in four days.
On one of the stormy days I figured I make the hubs and I a treat.
A couple of hours later two pans of Dark Chocolate with crushed and slivered almonds and a sprinkle of sea salt was the result. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!!
This will last about a month since we only have one or two pieces a day or so.
Tomorrow I'll get out the bread machine and make an Italian Herb bread to go with Spaghetti. The bread will be a boxed mix just to see if we like it. If it ends up being a bread were not fond of I'll slice it, dry it and run it through the food processor for herb-ed bread crumbs to use in recipes.
My life lately has been completely devoid of any crafting, stitching, sewing and designing mojo. Not even a spark to get me to look through my supplies.
So I have been going in a different direction and made Banana Bread and Cinnamon Raisin Bread much to the "Big Guys" delight. I also canned up some more Spaghetti Sauce and Olives.
Forgot to get a picture of the Cinnamon Raisin Bread.
Last month the Big Guy" brought me home a present and I completely love it. Best of all, it was FREE!
It is a 1938 Kohler Single Basin Drainboard Sink.
We may end up finding or making a base for it and use in an outdoor potting shed that I want to add out by our garden. Still need to clean it up.
Speaking of garden's I have 17 pots of Roma Tomatoes started that are around 6" tall and 3 each of two different Heirloom Tomatoes started, as well as cucumbers and a Wax Bean just to see if we like it. I've also started herbs like Parsley, Basil and Oregano. Trying Potatoes for the first time and look forward to seeing how it works out. Need to buy some Bell Pepper plants and onions, to help make up our mostly Spaghetti Sauce garden.
I just found out that Hancock Fabrics is going out of business. Right now everything in their stores and on-line is 20% to 50% off. It's a good time to stock up on any sewing, stitching, and craft supplies you need.
In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.
