Thank you for all of the kind comments concerning my brother. A few of you brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for the blog love!
Fall came in last night with light rain. Leaves skittered across the road. A cool breeze blew
through the kitchen window. I took this photo after work yesterday of a tree near my parking lot at I.U. I took this for my displaced Hoosier sister, Holly over at Hoosier at Heart. She doesn't live in Indiana any longer and misses our beautiful fall leaves. I'll be thinking of you and Kris this weekend...wish I could join the fun!
I found this recipe, yesterday, at Mennonite Girls Can Cook. It is very light. I hope you appreciate the photo below. I am right-handed and it is a difficult task to take a photograph left-handed!
This cake bakes up light and fluffy. They advise to let it cool for fifteen minutes in the pan. I normally only let a cake cool for ten minutes before flipping it. I had a little difficulty getting it out of the pan so I might only let it cool for ten minutes the next time. The also say not to under-bake. My oven runs hot so fifty-five minutes was perfect for me.
The recipe says to dust with powdered sugar. I might put cream cheese icing on it the next time. I am forever changing recipes- thinking how might I make this better? Doug brought this pumpkin home to me last night so I thought it would look pretty in the picture.
A perfect way to welcome fall. I love keeping a tablecloth on my farmhouse table. My mother bought this one for me years ago and it is one of my favorites. I am a candle nut. I went to Michael's a week or so ago and got three jar candles in fall fragrances, three for ten dollars. (Note: Michael's did not ask for an endorsement.)
Crunching leaves, cool temperatures, camping and campfires. Lighting a fire in the wood stove. Chili (or any soup) on the stove. Time to cozy in. Welcome, fall!
