     I love this time of year. I hear people complaining, all the time. the suns going down sooner, the weather is getting cooler, its raining again. Thats what makes this time of year great!
    My garden is overflowing with veggies, I can hardly keep up with it. I go out first thing, in the morning. and pick them, just me and the birds singing in the morning sun. The bugs are not as thick, so no more stinky spray; thats always a plus.
    I eat nothing but what comes out of the garden this time of year. I get to try new recipes and some old favorite ones. Fried green tomatoes, tomato pudding, zuccini bread and salsa. grilled eggplant, and many more.
   I love going to bed earlier since it gets dark sooner, who could not use a little more sleep. and the sun seems so much brighter in the morning, not the harsh bright light, but a soft bright glow through the morning fog. How can anyone hate that?
   The air is cleaner due to the rain, you can breath now. Take a big breath and I know you can tell the differance, its clean and clear. Which make working so much better.
    The most favorite part of thistime of year is canning. Seeing the fruits of your labor satcking up on the shelves. its a wonderful thing, somehow comforting to me.
     life is slowing down right now and I am loving it. I wish I could have September and October year around. That would be pure heaven for me.
     Thanks for reading my gushing, I just wish I could share this feeling with everyone.

About Me
I am a care taker for my 8 handicapped adopted brother and sisters. I was widowed in 2009 and have a stepson and grandson. I am just trying to keep it all together and cooking is my escape. Thank goodness my family loves to try new things.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. It helps me to watch something I mix in a bowl.turn out so brown and perfect. My favorate things are cakes I love trying new versons.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a German and Irish background, so I try to waste nothing. Everything can be saved and made into a casserole at the end of the week.
My cooking triumphs
I made a seven tiered anniverary cake for my grandparents when I was thirteen. Best thing I ever made. It was perfect.
My cooking tragedies
Tried to make beans and dumplings. My late husbands mother made them. I dont know what I did wrong but mine turned out like a pot of glue.
