Copper Penny Carrots

Mom is once again baking and making salads and preparing for our friend Steve's barn workshop this weekend.  September 11th and 12th is his barn raising and the timberframers have work to do to get to that point!

We helped her make Copper Penny Carrots!

Dice 1 small onion
Then dice 3 bell peppers and put aside.
In a small saucepan,  heat 1 minced garlic clove, 1 can of tomato soup, 1/2 cup of salad oil, 1/2 cup of sugar, 2/3 cup of vinegar (we used wine vinegar), 1 teaspoon dry mustard and 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce. 
Bring this mixtuer to a boil.
Drain three 15 oz cans of sliced carrots and add them to the diced onion and bell pepper.
Pour the boiling liquid mixture over the veges. 
Cover and let the entire salad marinate overnight.    yummmmmmmmmmm

Have you all heard that our friends, Inky and Molly are having a give-away on their bloggie? Head on over and check it out!  You don't want to miss out on this!

We have a new handsome friend that we want you all to meet!  His name is Fabrizio and he is an Italian Spinone pup.   He lives in Germany and right now he is trying to grow a beard!   Mitch was only too happy to let him know that he thinks that apples are the way to go! 
Does anyone have any other special tonic that they might want to share with Fabrizio
So until next time.........

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

    We hope the apples work for Fabrizio, but we're afraid he may have to buy a fake beard!
