Pumpkins R US part 1

We love pumpkins  

Recently we took a short trip to the NC Farmer's Market to
buy some pumpkins.

Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere and not a pie in sight but evidently Jarrahdales are great for pies.  Never heard of them but I asked GiGi Google if they made green pies... this is what I found

Wordless Wednesday In Purrsit of Flavors


Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

Landscape art at the entrance to the Farmer's Market in Raleigh

 I thank Das Nelly and Phenny and Canadian Cats FOR HOSTING
This month's flavor is
(mine is actually a soup sometimes I'm a rule breaker)

Vegetarian Bean Soup

1 small onion chopped (optional)
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 16 oz can "baked" beans with liquid
1 16 oz can lima beans (rinsed and drained)
1 16 oz can red kidney beans (rinsed and drained)**
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon brown light brown sugar
1 tablespoon thyme
Salt and pepper optional
Cheddar Cheese to put on top before serving

Directions for crock pot:
Add onion to crock pot first, then add tomatoes, beans, brown sugar and thyme.  Stir
Cook on high for about 4 hours.  Served topped with cheddar cheese.

**Hints: I never substitute the vegetarian beans or lima beans.  I often substitute kidney with navy.  Sometimes I use kidney and navy if I want it thicker.

Makes 4 servings in the above size bowl

Happy Tuesday Trek

Join me today for a mini trek thru the 'hood, this one is about 35 minutes.
Starts on the corner of Hedgemoor and Cowden
Hedgemoor is the main entrance street into our area. It is about 3 long blocks

at the end of Hedgemoor I turn right onto Basil then left onto Bayberry which is probably the longest street in the area

sometimes about 1/2 way down Basil I turned on to Edgedale (could not take a photo there were several walkers gathered there talking).  I walked down Edgedale
to Longford Lane, which by the way is the shortest street in the area back to Bayberry toward home.
Along the trek I see lots of pretty berries and blooms

 For a longer trek  I take all the above streets going to the end of Bayberry to Valley Estates Dr. past Lemon Springs Ct. and Dresden Drive
That is about a 45 or 50 minute round trip.  This is my favorite  cooler weather trek 

Speaking of my EMW's I'm seeing  many very entertaining Halloween Decorations.  I'll be sharing them throughout the month.

Awww Monday and Sparks

Thank you to our   

Host Comedy Plus 


My friend and roving photojournalist, Janice, sent me today's Awww Monday photos.

 She took the first full moon shot leaving her grandson's ballgame in Wake Forest on September 19, 2021.  

It looked even brighter when they got home so next 2 pics are from their yard 

Janice and family are at Oak Island, NC 
this week to celebrate her son's 47th birthday.
He and his Dad will be fishing.  Janice sent me this beautiful view she has of the Atlantic Ocean from their rental cottage.
She said the Springer Spaniels and their owner (owner is covered by the border around the photo) were having a fine time
