Much ado about nothing. Yes, the waves were bigger but no flooding no big winds just nothing. I do not say that about Canada I think they got the brunt of it, and I am so sorry for them.
Husband had a Dr's appointment in the city. So, I went along for the ride. This is not the greatest part of the city, but this fence is old.
And lovely but sadly not being up kept that well. I always wonder if those who pass it daily notices this pretty fence?
Today after the non-storm (a bit of rain a little wind nothing much)
I headed out into my very neglected gardens, and I pulled weeds for a few hours and cleaned up. This hummingbird was all about my zinnias. He must be getting ready to leave.
I found this years old farmer's almanac. We hang it in the bathroom and by the time the new one comes out it is well read lol.
They are predicting a cold snowy winter. The weather man is not we shall see who is right.
It really is a great book lots of info and recipes.
I will give you my spice mix but I also wanted to let you know about this powered cheddar. I got mine at king Arthur Flour, but I am sure you can find it other places. This is made with Vermont Cheddar. If you want to make anything cheesy such as baked in breads and biscuits, I made a white sauce and added some of this to it gave it a nice depth. Sprinkle it on popcorn yumm that is just the beginning of ideas.
Ok my spice mix
11/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp of tarragon
2 tab salt
1 tab onion powder
1 tab garlic powder
1 tab of thyme
1 tab of parsley
1 tab of black powder
you can leave out or add to
whatever suites your taste buds.
because I dried a lot of my own herbs, I put it all through the grinder and into an old shaker I had. I have been using this on everything and it is delicious!
My tiny garden that never really got started this year because of all the rain decided I needed zucchini late august early September.
So, I made sweet zucchini relish. The best sound in the world is when canning and all the tops are popping to seal.
I also went to our local farmer. He had lots of sweet peppers.
For 5.00 a bag I took some home and roasted them, peeled them and put them in olive oil. I still have more to do but this is a start I think I will end up freezing some of them.
My rhubarb is still growing pretty well so I cut some to freeze.
I will make strawberry rhubarb pie for the holidays.
I guess that is it for the food part of my blog lol.
I have been stitching this summer instead of hooking, so I treated myself to a needle minder. The witchy season is just around the corner.
And speaking of the witchy season. I am going to
"The Witches of Wells hook in" in October.
I will be the one with the crystal ball......
Have a wonderful week!
