I've decided we're having breakfast for supper tonight and we're having pancakes and sausage. Hubby likes pancakes but let's be very clear here. He likes pancakes because he likes pancake syrup because syrup has what in it? Yep, SUGAR!!! When I checked my cabinets I realized I had just a little maple syrup and absolutely no pancake syrup. I grew up on sugar water but he turns his nose up at that so . . . I've found a recipe for homemade pancake syrup that tastes perfect!! It's not necessarily what I would call good for you but it is frugal. Hubby is going to love it!! I put the recipe on my Recipes page.
Last night we went over to our friends' house for supper and they grilled some cheeseburgers, made fried potatoes, green beans and an apple crisp. I brought deviled eggs, some sliced red and green peppers, open-jar pickles and a fruit salad. Oh my, it was all pretty tasty. On a Fall evening it was just shy of perfect!! After we ate we took a walk down over their hill and picked up persimmons. I got several but their trees are still absolutely loaded. There most certainly are bushels of persimmons still hanging on the trees and should be ripe within the week. I was giddy!! I am always so impressed with what the natural world provides in the way of food. People would be amazed if they would just stop and look around them. And the beauty, well, she said she would try to get me a pic of the tree so I could let you all see just how beautiful. I hope she does. If will gratify your very being.
I've had a great day at work and am beginning to get the hang of things. I still have a lot to learn but I want to learn it so that makes it come a lot easier. I've fed the chickens and horses and fixed supper so I'm getting ready now to get out to the herb garden and check on the fig tree. Have a great evening!!
