I have so many great magazines, so I have challenged myself to try at least one recipe from each that I breeze through this fall and winter. This time, thanks to a 2008 Country Home edition, I baked today.
I tried something new to me~~~
I baked Scones for the first time ever.
I apologize for not having a picture of the finished product but they really did turn out like the ones above, Just ask my Mom. I thought for sure Bill would love these, I did! but he didn't. Not to make excuses for him, but he just never liked me trying new recipes out on his ' delicate ' palate~~~so I took the rest of them to the farm to share with my Mom....she said to tell Bill that she was glad he didn't care for the scones, because she Loved them. I made sure to thank him for her.... Maybe, just maybe Bill didn't care for them because he doesn't care for any texture resembling a baking powder biscuit. What's wrong with that man? Every one loves biscuits!
Yes, Good Eats!

This recipe turned out better than I could have dreamed. The bacon came from the pig our neighbor raised for us to share with Bill's brother. It sure added to the Bacon Black Pepper Scones fantastic flavor. That was breakfast with eggs.
For ' Lupper,' ( that's lunch and supper ), I made soup.
This time it was Venison Vegetable with Egg Dumplings.
The best thing about this particular soup was that everything came off the land. The venison was harvested and canned during last falls deer season and all of the vegetables, green beans, tomatoes, potatoes, celery, yellow wax beans, Buttercup Squash, onions and peppers, all came this season's garden. The eggs for the dumplings came from Mom's productive chickens.
Yes, Good Eats! and healthy too!
OOPS, I lied~~the flour, salt and pepper came from the store, but yet, from Someones gardens.
It's funny how so many little kids today, think that EVERYTHING
comes from the store....sad, isn't it?
To end the day, Chocolate Snicker Cake with Chocolate Glaze.
Who could ask for anything more?
Putting the glaze on while the cake was still hot sure did make the cake extra moist. Yes, Good Eats!
And the rest remains tight around our waists~
but it was worth every delicious bite.
Time to hit the hay,
And sleep, sleep, sleep!
Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing from you.
