Aren't these the sweetest little pads? I love the pretty fabrics she used! She also sent big brother a little gift...something all boys enjoy: dinosaurs! He is going to love those! Thank you, Debbie, for being so thoughtful.
We didn't grow corn in our little garden this year, but received 12 ears from hubby's coworker on Monday. I cut it off the cob, cooked in a little bacon grease with a small amount of onion, and froze it. I plan to finish it up next week, on Tuesday, which is our traditional family night with the children. I am going to add a little cream, a little sugar, and salt and pepper. It will be my first attempt at making creamed style corn and I hope it will be as yummy as I imagine it will be.
I've heard a lot of people say that they haven't had too much luck with their tomatoes this year. We only planted four plants, but ours have been some of the prettiest tomatoes we have ever grown. I've also received tomatoes from others and have managed to freeze a few quarts for later. I enjoy the freezing process and can just imagine how yummy these home grown tomatoes will be in chili, soup, and spaghetti sauce when the weather turns cool. I'm not rushing it, but I am looking forward to cooler weather!
