Good Morning Everyone

  Loving October so far, although we are in much need of  rain here as we got missed last weekend. So no outdoor work for me til we get a good rain.

  I did get a couple dye projects in last month and still spinning-see here

   We were treated to a fish fry last friday evening. Three couples total and we had such a good time. The guys have been going fishing in Larry's new fishing boat so one friend took all the catfish home cleaned and set up his fryer-he even made a batch gluten free for me. We all brought a dish to pass so good eats with good company.
   This was really nice for the two of us, as we have  not done something like this in years and years. I think we all get along so well that we will be doing this again soon.

   So how have you all been?? The leaves are just thinking about changing colors here-always so pretty when they do. The deer are not coming by on a daily basis for some reason, have seen or heard a few turkeys and the hummingbirds have now left the area.  Neither of us has seen one for three days now so just took down their feeders to clean and then store.
   Now to put up some seed feeders.

Enjoy your day!

Good Morning Saturday & Linky Parties Question

Good morning everyone,

   Any plans for your weekends?  Yesterday I did more dutch oven baking with a gluten free upside down cake-which actually baked better than in my gas oven in less time. This cake is difficult to bake done in the middle so in the house oven half way into the baking time I put a piece of parchment paper on top and then check often til done-but outdoors it baked much more evenly.
    I only use mixes for a couple gluten free baked goods as I know it will turn out and sometimes just easier. The fruit I used in this one was a can of drained no sugar fruit cocktail and diced fresh pears. I set up the dutch oven the same as when I do my pies-on a trivet inside the dutch oven in a glass or glazed pottery pan, coals on top and on the bottom around the edge just barely under the oven. Next time though I will place maybe two or three hot coals under the dutch oven around the center so for this it will carmalize better -but was very pleased.

   I ended up doing a grilled friday too-grilled italian brats, pork and beans doctored up a bit, grilled onions, peppers, my own canned chantrelle mushrooms-the cake was dessert.

   I am off to take a short walk this morning and gather up some more goldenrod before it gets rained on -thinking of experimenting dyeing artists papers-not sure yet.

Those of you that set up linky parties here on your blog-what company or sites do you like to use?? I tried a couple for my Creativity Wednesdays on my Hummingbird Woodland Studio blog and one I just couldn't get to work-and the other one I didn't like, had to pay to personalize it which I thought was a bit much?  Anyways if I get allot of participation a link set up would be nicer for everyone. so any help would be appreciated  Thank you

    Enjoy your weekend-we have a cold front moving in with some rain and promises of fall weather-looking forward to it.
