What Do You Know? Not Much

Not much going on in this household. I'm back in school and we getting into our usual fall schedules and routine which means"
GHSFootball GHSFootball
High school football on Friday nights....

Beef Stroganoff
Cheesy Chicken Tortellini Bake
Trying to get back into menu planning ....

AppleCiderPudding Cake
Making sweets for night time snacking...

B and N
Making quick trips to Greenville. (There isn't a decent bookstore in our town plus we just enjoy going to Greenville for the day.) Speaking of bookstore. The other day we were in Barnes and Noble and I noticed a new magazine. The title of the magazine caused me to pause for a moment and wonder.
Garden.....Gun.....the two words don't go together, do they? When I think of gardens, the thought of guns never cross my mind. I picked up the magazine and was pleasantly surprised. Garden and Gun is "about the sporting culture, food, music, art, literature, and people" in the south. I don't hunt but I do enjoy the southern culture which the magazine spotlights and it is published in Charleston (one of my favorite SC cities.) Guess one shouldn't judge a magazine by its cover.

And speaking of wondering....

Why do young people like to wear their tags? Hmmm...
How fast does one need to travel to clip a utility pole? Hmmm..
How do you entertain yourself while sitting in the car as the car is washed? Hmmm...

This is going to be a strange fall this year. This is the first time in many, many years where we will not be attending USC football games. The increase in ticket prices and the amount of time it eats up on a weekend convinced us to just stay home and watch them on TV. One exception - the doctor son is coming home for a short visit in September and we have tickets while he is home.

Backyard Update - Whoopie!

Backyard Fence Backyard Fence
The fence is complete! Waiting for it to season so we can have it stained. Yes! Then the fun begins.....landscaping the yard.

I have mentioned before that one no longer needs to pull out recipe books to plan meals as long as the world wide web is available. I find it to be more interesting and definitely more fun to cruise the food blogs than to leaf through recipe books. A few months ago I found a new reader-submitted recipe community site (Tasty Kitchen) on the Internet created by Ree from Pioneer Woman. Check it out if you love reading/trying new recipes, and meeting new friends.You just might find recipes like:
