Can't beat the color lately.
As you can see, the front paddock is still a muddy mess...
so is the outdoor arena (not to mention the standing water).
After chores I changed my clothes and made myself
drive down to Agape.
Somehow I managed to do 20 minutes on the elliptical, 20 on the bike and 5 on the treadmill.
It sure would be nice if I could get back in the exercise groove.
After lunch I decided to make a pot of butternut squash/apple soup.
I large squash.
2 cups of onions.
First I sauteed the onions in a combo of butter and olive oil.
When they were translucent I added the squash, apples 1 cup of water, 1 cup of cider,
salt, pepper and a tablespoon of good chicken stock (organic paste).
When everything was fork tender I put it through the food processor.
Returned it to the pot and added a little milk to thin it out.
Easy and outstanding flavor.
After that, the pups and I went out to the garden
and I picked tomatoes....
mostly green/a few red.
Also found some cauliflower.
This is truly the end of the glads.
It is the third time I have cut them back.
Should be able to squeek out a couple more days.
Around 5pm, the setting sun was blasting through the west windows.
Dinner was delicious.
Salad-mixed greens, apples, golden raisins, bananas and peanuts.
Carina's multi grain bread...
and the soup.
