Happy Fall Y'all!

Well it's going to be a blistering 91 degrees this afternoon and I'm not feeling "fallish". Yesterday I promised the chickadees we would decorate, make a fall dessert, and have cider. Yes, I even -preplanned by buying cider. (Didn't have time to make my own-hehehe.)

We've been on a downhill slide all morning. Since I'm the co-captain in charge, I need to save this sinking ship. (don't ask)

First we'll make Pumpkin Spice Cookies. Then head out to garden at 4-H. Home for baked chicken, veggies, salad and biscuits. Then our yummy cookies ( you know they'll be good) and cider. Clean up the kitchen, let the chickens out and do a bit of decorating! These are pumpkin cookie. Sorry for the blurriness (one of the girls took a quick pic for me-not that it matters). They were good ,but not at all like a cookie. The tasted like muffun tops and we were wanting cookies. We use 2 apples, 2 cups of cider, and lots of ice to make our cider slushes. The chickadees liked it all. (and isn't that what it was all about?)

In a couple of weeks fall will come to our region and everything will kick into high gear around here. 4-H Apple sale, 4 Sweet Sisters Pumpkin Bread sale, Pickling, Backyard Camping and Thanksgiving.

I'll pop back in later and post some pictures.
