Tasty Tuesday

Mom loves Cream of Tomato soup and she grew up on Campbell's Cream of Tomato but she doesn't buy canned soup anymore so she decided to find a recipe and make her own from scratch.

She found quite a few recipes and sorta created her own from all of the ones that she read.
She sauteed a shallot and a garlic clove together until soft and transparent and then she added a 15-oz box of chicken stock and salt and pepper and a tiny bit of sugar and Mrs Dash's Italian seasoning (which she could never live without) and let the broth simmer till it was good and hot and then she added a 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes and she let that cook for a bit.
 And then she added 1-cup of heavy cream.    One of the recipes that she read suggested stirring in a teaspoon of the pesto and she thought that was a great idea! 
It's the perfect color that reminds mom of all of the cold and crisp days that her mom made this for lunch for my mom and her brothers when they came inside from playing outside all morning.
 It's perfect, mom! 
 We'll be making Cream of Tomato soup more than once this season!

Love ya lots♥

What's with the witch's hat, mom?   This doesn't suit me at all - especially when Mackie is here ☺

The Home at Last Quilt

Mom won this gorgeous quilt that was made by the Airedale Rescue Quilting Bee in 2011.  Mom was a part of the Quilting Bee and this was the very first quilt that she ever made blocks for so it's a very special quilt to her.
Maggie and Mitch posted on our blog the day that the Home at Last quilt arrived.
This beautiful quilt has been stored in our closet for 99% of the time.   Mom puts it on the bed for a day or two to enjoy it and smile but then it goes back into the closet for safe keeping.     She feels that this is not right and that the quilt should be seen every single day - admired and enjoyed so she is donating it back to National Airedale Rescue.
It will be sold and a new owner will enjoy it for the next 100 years or so.   If you have any interest in purchasing it or know someone who might, please click on the Home at Last quilt picture on our sidebar and it will take you to National Airedale Rescue for more details.

I've gotten lots of treats posing with this fabulous quilt~
Life is good~

Nature Friday

We are joining mini Arty and mini Jakey this week for Nature Friday.

This is Landlord Bob's duck pond as we walked by it just after 7am at the start of this week.  It was 35 degrees.  

 Those are black walnuts, mom - not tennis balls.  You cannot fool me!
 Farmer Will's produce stand looks so pretty decorated for autumn.
 Move to the right you say, mom.
 Now can you see the pretty flowers behind me?!
 Such beautiful Asters!
 And we found a Daylily in bloom~
 Love the pretty pink mums!
 Happy Friday, everybuddy☺
Love ya lots♥

Terrific Tuesday

Throw it, mom!
 In coming~
 Got it!
 We discovered that our Lavender is blooming again~
 Mom picked Bittersweet that wasn't open yet.  She discovered last year that if you pick it when it's closed and bring it inside - it will open overnight or the next day.  
 Life is good~
Love ya lots♥
