Signs of October


New large dehydrator and jar of dried plums behind.  Marshal is enjoying them for his lunch each day.
Dried pears, pear butter, a couple jars of plum jam, and a few jars of canned pears in honey syrup.  I was just dabbling in the preserves.
Leftover Birthday Cupcakes - (Dr Oetker box mixes and enjoy life sprinkles)

Quite the caterpillar on his lip.  Enjoying mustaches and cowboy themes.

A brilliant full-arching rainbow at the end of the day.

The end of the rainbow ran to the neighbors'.  They are a pot of gold.

Last minute creative culinary concoction for dinner again.  Kale chips and sprouted bean, canned salmon, and garden salad.  There are many kale chip recipes online.  I tear the leaves in large sections, drizzle with melted coconut oil, sprinkle with sea salt and bake at 325ºF convection for about 15 minutes.

Costco has these sprouted beans, tru roots, over by the organic quinoa.   They cook up fast.  I rinsed them with cold water and tossed them with salmon, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, spring onions, and parsley from the garden, squeeze of lemon and olive oil, seal salt, and pepper.

Eleven sugar pie pumpkins from our own garden, kabocha from the farm, and some special large unnamed ones from Grandma curing by the stove for our winter supply.  This month was a first large endeavor in food storage with the fall produce.
