Good Morning! I had a no so quiet weekend due to a knee injury so just read and watched the race and football, but now I am ready for a great new week especially now that it's my favorite season - FALL is here Y'ALL!.  It's Monday morning so join in with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom  for Happy Homemaker Monday.  Be sure and stop by to see what it's all about!

  • A big cup of coffee and apple maple cinnamon oatmeal with golden raisins.
  • Pool Time
  • Laundry
  • Groceries
  • Errands
  • Paperwork
  • Phone Calls

The FALL schedule starts so many new shows to try before working out our new fall routine.

Still really warm here, but supposedly we will drop down to double digits later this week.  I just keep reminding myself that it's only for a short time more.

Do a little quilting and finish a few older projects though I have yet to have a few minutes to myself LOL like that's going to happen.

I have a list of tons of recipes I want to try, but this week I think I'll try one I found in my box of tricks for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies as well as the 5 new ones above for dinners.

Garden is looking good and in need of just a little pruning this week.

I tend to eyeball some measurements because that's the way I was taught, but often, especially with a new recipe I'm exact.

There are 2 different types (many people don't realize this) - dry and wet measure.

Liquid measure tend to be glass or plastic with a pour spout.

Dry measures are your nested cups and spoons.

basic MEASURE EQUIVALENTS to get you started - I'll let you do the rest of the math
1 cup = 8 ounces liquid or 16 tablespoons dry
1 tablespoon = 1/2 ounce liquid or 3 teaspoons dry

Been a busy week with my knee, emergency vet and such so I really haven't done any blog hopping to see what's going on out there.

Just seriously wondering when so much of the world lost its common sense and kindness?  

Common Sense to prevail with some medical issues and the imbeciles, idiots, ignorant, clueless people handling the paperwork and appointments dealing with it.


  1. Sounds like a great week! All the previous weeks recipes look great too! Oh and love the photo!!

    1. Thanks! I love the sunset photos here too, but I won't be sorry to leave this place. :D

  2. I would love to have one of those peanut butter cookies!

    1. Here you go Celes :passing plate through screen:, fresh from the oven. YUM!

  3. Your recipes are always so yummy. You know I miss being able to fill my menus with new things to try, but unfortunately these past few months I haven't been able to.

    I hope your knee is doing better.

    I hear you on the Fall shows, there are so many good ones starting.

    Have a wonderful week my friend,

    1. Thanks Sandra, this is kind of my last hurrah for new recipes as I'm dwindling down supplies getting ready for the move and am anxious to remake some soups and stews for fall on the other end and get some new pictures.


Thanks for stopping by. Please leave your ingredients for this recipe we call life!
