One pizza is for week end feasting and the other […]

There are pumpkin pies, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes, and now, pumpkin curry. Using a base of chicken broth and coconut milk, with spices of curry, cumin, coriander, and cloves, added to onions, garlic and ginger, with a dash of cayenne pepper, pumpkin curry can warm you down to your toes!

Red Slicker

The season has changed when I put on the red slicker and barn boots to feed the puppies! My slicker is rubber, comes down below my knees, has a hood, and keeps me dry.  You see little kids wearing yellow versions of the same slicker.  I like my flaming red slicker better! Happy fall!!
