Pepperidge Farm Recipe

Today I bought the stuff to make skillet sausage and stuffing. The recipe called for a couple of kinds of Italian sausages but I just bought a lot of a sausage that I'm sure I like. Tomorrow I'll put my adapted recipe together.


Today I started moving plants into the greenhouse. It's early, but I don't want to wait until the last minute. I've done it that way and it's a pain. So moving a few at a time is better.


After I made my lovely casseroles, I had pepperidge farm stuffing mix left. I went to their website to hopefully find a recipe that would use the rest of the stuffing mix. I found a promising recipe and then got sucked in found a couple more likely looking being banana panini! So I have my shopping list ready, clothes on, breakfast consumed, bedclothes in the washer...ready to run errands😀

Bad Choice

I've been choosing a book to listen to while trying to drop off to sleep. Last night I chose one of the Vorkosigan books by Lois Bujold. It turned out to be a bad choice as I was soon shaking with laughter, trying to be still and quiet so as not to disturb my husband. It also isn't easy to drop off to sleep while giggling.

Food Saving

This is a recipe we got when Leigh took home ec a long time ago. It is a favorite still. If something is a lot of trouble to make, either because of specific shopping and/ or time, I like to make part to eat immediately and part for the freezer. I keep disposable aluminium pans that stack nicely in the freezer. This sheet cake pan lined with foil makes it easy to handle them without the stuff spilling and making a mess. Currently I have dressing, eggplant Parmesan, and one chicken, broccoli, and cheese casserole in my food savings account...labeled and dated on each. I thought at first I could just remember, but we had unexpected combinations using that method.

Angelwing Begonias

It's time to start taking cuttings to save over the winter. The top picture shows the plugs that I use for my cuttings. The bottom picture shows the baskets and flower boxes I have across the front porch.

Fall is officially here so I've started planning what I'll do when it feels like fall. I'm willing to plan when it's hot. But cleaning the greenhouse when it's hot isn't going to happen.
