A Fall Day at Home...

Hi everyone..
I wanted to thank all you sweet ladies for praying for my Mom. .
She is feeling great and is going home tomorrow..
 God is so good..
She could not even walk on Friday but now all is well..
Thank you, Lord.. He is always so faithful, eh?

It is a rainy day here today.. A bit cool and it certainly is Fall.. 
Kind of a stay at home day.. Especially since we have been either sick or on the road for two weeks.. 
I did up a few chores and made lunch and a batch of cookies and then I sat down for a while.. 
This is one view from there...


The dining room is in there through the French doors..

 
We love antiques... Did you know that?  Smile...

See the apples are still hanging from the old apple trees...


I love looking through there to the outside...Especially when the wind is blowing the branches around.. smile.

Here is the recipe I promised you..
I can not take the credit for it... smile..


Although, I did substitute ham for chicken and used zucchini instead of green peppers...And I used  a cup of the following recipe for zucchini pineapple instead of the can of pineapple called for in the recipe...

Sweet and Sour Ham we will call it...


We had it served over rice... Terry loved it and I liked it.. smile..
Depends on your taste buds, eh?  I think chicken would be nicer..

I also found the recipe for this at the same blog and made a batch on Monday..A farmer's wife we know still had some yellow zucchini... 
Pineapple Zucchini...

I did two mason jars which I will keep in the fridge to use.. They sealed but it was recommended to do a water bath so  I froze the rest in plastic containers...  
I love this.. She said you can use it like you would pineapple in BBQ sauce and such..
Here is the LINK FOR PRECIOUS PEAS BLOG...  where I found the recipes...

Thank you, my dears for stopping by..
I was happy yesterday to have so many visitors..  
I really look forward to hearing from you all..
I have a few ideas on my mind to share with you in the next while.. 
Perhaps some homespun Christmas gift ideas and some recipes out of an awesome book I found.. It is much older than I am..grin.. 
So keep checking.. ok? 
Hopefully, things will slow down a bit here.. smile..
God bless...

  1. Thank you for sharing! I just love the view out your door into your dining room, through the glass and out to the tress. Those apples look delicious. I love visiting with you this way! The recipes look so good, I will surely have to try them!

    We had our biweekly women's Bible study today on the righteousness of the Lord, so many scriptures, such good fellowship. Lunch afterward was Cowboy Beans, Cornbread & Strawberry Jello Cake. So good just to draw in, and celebrate the good life we've been given. The mountains are still glorious, but the peak of color has gone. A hard freeze is headed our way this weekend.

    When I read your blog, and your comments, it's just like that, being in s group of close friends who love the Lord. Such sharing!! So thankful your Mom is doing better! Blessings!
