Good Evening everyone..
I am finally back here..
So sorry that I have been away for a bit and I have many excuses but let's just say that I am glad to be here again and hope all has been going well with you all..
We enjoyed our last few days at the cottage ...
The Bay of Fundy was at it's finest the last weekend..
The yard sale went very well and I think that perhaps one more next year will clean the most of it out..
Then on Monday we returned home..
How sweet it is to be back even though I do not enjoy the thought of Summer coming to an end..
The weather here is still lovely and I have enjoyed a night or two under the stars for awhile..
The wind comes up and out I go and cuddle up under a cozy comforter and enjoy the wind blowing in my face for a couple of hours..
Then awhile later I crawl into our water bed and finish a lovely night's sleep after all that fresh air.. smile..
The apples are red on the trees and the leaves are changing a bit..
The house is slowly coming to rights..
There is just soooo much stuff to put away..
Baskets of clothes, groceries, and so much more..
But there are other things to do, too..
We spent a day at the farm just mowing the lawn and catching up...
The fall colors are setting in here, too..
We had a meal and enjoyed our time there..
We went out for another day for Terry to cut up a bit of wood and I took along some veggies to make up a couple of recipes..
One thing I try to make each season is Sunny Window Dill Pickles..
I made them there and then brought them along home to place on my sunny kitchen window...
Here is the recipe for you..
SUNNY WINDOW DILL PICKLES..
2 1/2 qts of very fresh pickling cucumber
3 T. dill seed
3 bay leaves
3 cloves of garlic, sliced
dill flower heads
pinch of chili flakes, opt..
2 cups of water
4 cups of white wine vinegar
1/2 cup of coarse salt
Sterilize a large bottle..
Slice washed cucumbers into medium thick slices..
Put water, vinegar and coarse salt in a sauce pan and bring to a boil..
Layer the herbs and garlic between cucumber slices until the jar is full..
Cover with brine and seal well..
Place in a sunny window for a couple of weeks..
I hope you enjoy this recipe ..
I noticed that there are still nice little cucumbers in the markets and this is a very simple recipe .
This is a very short post and hopefully I will get back to you soon..
Our internet was down for a few days and then we took a couple of day trips, yada yada yada ... grin..
We are going to the cottage for a couple of days this weekend, Lord willing..
It takes a few times to get everything back here and close the cottage up..
Thanks for visiting and for your sweet comments..
Take care dear hearts..
and to ..STEPHANIE..
