The Scavenger Hunt

 We are joining Miss Anni this month for her scavenger hunt.  This is our first time participating.  All photos had to be ours - no stealing from the intermutts.

We had to find a sign~
Something seasonal~
A yellow leaf~
A miniature~
A pumpkin~
Something dated~
Anything lighted~
A decorated door~
A printed author's name~
And finally, a mystery photo.  The photo has to be a close-up with a hint.    This item belongs to me - Molly!

This has been oodles of fun and we can't wait to participate in another one of Miss Anni's scavenger hunts!  You have until Halloween to join in.   What are you waiting for.   Follow this link~

Love ya lots♥

Tasty Tuesday

 A few days ago, mom bought apple cider muffins at our local Northford Store and they were To- Die-For-Delicious so she decided that she was going to search for an apple cider quick bread recipe to make.  She found one that sounded pretty yummy to her~

 Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • cups peeled and chopped apples
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, sift the dry ingredients (flour through cloves).
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together the sugars and butter. Beat in eggs. Add in flour mixture alternately with cider- about half at a time, and mix just until combined.
  • In a small bowl, toss the apples with lemon juice. Stir into the batter.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared pan. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for at least 20 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and let cool completely.  Time for a taste test before you scoop it into the loaf pan, mom!
    It tastes good and it's looking good~
    An hour later, it's out of the oven.   It smells soooo yummy!
     
    In all honesty, the apple cider loaf bread was moist and delicious but the apple cider muffins from Northford Store win out~
     
    Have a terrific Tuesday!
     
    Love ya lots♥

Tasty Tuesday

 Mom decided that she wanted to make lentil soup and she wanted it to have more veges in it than she has put into her lentil soup in the past, which is great with me because I love veges!

She started sauteing the onion and garlic and sausage together and then added the carrots~

She added celery next and let the mixture cook and soften.
Next she added the chicken broth and the lentils and Mrs Dash spices and salt and pepper and got it nice and hot and let it cook for a bit to soften the lentils.  Then came the diced tomatoes.
When the soup was almost done - she added the spinach and parmesan cheese and black olives. She puts black olives in almost everything because she loves them and she won't share not even one of them with me!
She really likes this recipe. It's a keeper and she'll be making it again as the weather gets colder.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Love ya lots♥

Molly
