Good evening ladies,
Today I made a Greek Pasta Salad from the new american heart association cookbook and used some fancy pasta I got at the country shop- it was bow tie pasta in black & white stripes. I couldn't resist trying it. The salad was good.
Our youngest son helped me with some gardening chores and he cooked up some lobster mushrooms he found yesterday.
Oldest son's cat is hovering around me because she is lonesome since he has been gone for a few days with his estranged wife in town. Estranged or strange.
Louise, I just hate dealing with insurance companies. For me that was the worst part of working in a doctor's office. I hope it goes smoothly for you contacting them. Can you tell DH you need him to walk or swim with you?
Ann, I'm glad you're enjoying the cool weather. Things did not grow well here this year so it's amazing to think of truckloads of tomatoes.
Glenna, I sliced up some fresh peaches to add to DH's and son's oatmeal this morning. I love peach or apple dumplings. The smell of canning and the sight of the jars lined up with their colorful contents is so satisfying.
This is a poem Alma Barkman had published in Country Woman:
Crowned in color, autumn comes.
Topaz kernals, amethyst plums,
Ruby jelly, emerald dills -
With brilliant gems, the pantry fills.
Gleaming jewels sealed in glass,
Treasures of the harvest past.
