Fall is definitely on it's way. Besides the GrandLoves getting primed for the first days of school, their pumpkins are beginning to ripen. Grandpa didn't think there would be enough to go around, ( we do have 11 GrandLoves plus 2 more were added over the summer. ) I do think we will have enough.
There are all kinds from,
bumpy orange, lumpy cream,
smooth ones of all the fall colors.
Big ones, little tykes too. It just does not matter, for they all are
' just right.'
We do have a problem, however, so we hired a ' scout '
to be a look-out for bears. It seems they have been testing the pumpkins for ripeness...
This is not just a smiling pumpkin,
that smile is made of tooth marks.
What do you think made that smile so perfect?
Off the subject of pumpkins,
remember all of the onions we worked on yesterday~~~
well, a bag of them were beginning to spoil from wet ground or they were split from rapid growth. Nothing goes to waste around here, so first the dehydrator trays were filled for dried onions.
I cannot explain how wonderful they smelled while drying.
It reminded me of French Onion Soup, so
of course, guess what we had for lunch?
It was wonderful!
To top it off, there were a couple slices of leftover Zucchini Parmesan Bread that I toasted and melted more fresh Parmesan and a slice of Provolone on top, floated it on top of the hot soup, and my, oh my, we went to heaven!
I don't mind cooking a fine meal
but I especially do not mind eating one.
What did you have to eat today that made you smile?
Thanks for stopping by and
