Fall Foliage and Hot Peppers

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Part of my walk each morning:

Tamdoll's walk 2010 October

It’s really nice out, cool crisp air and pretty to look at, just like an autumn patchwork.  I won’t mention that all the leaves eventually fall and need to be raked up, or they cause horrible leaf mold and yucky allergies along with smothering the grass that we try to grow every summer.   Tamdoll's Workspace

Jane P, that’s pretty interesting/funny that applesauce = baby food.  I guess it’s just a tradition here to preserve the apples that way when there are too many.  I have one daughter that can’t eat fresh fruit – she gets an itchy mouth – but when they’re cooked, she can have them!  I’d like to dry them one of these days but that may take too much electricity & I’m afraid that if I put them in the sun to dry, the animals will devour them.

As far as bread baking goes, if you make bread & it’s too hard it means there’s too much flour.  Slightly sticky dough is ok, you just have to hold it gently and not squeeze it (just knead gently) so it won’t stick to your hands.  This way it will come out tender. 

Thank you anonymous friend – I found my View Master & will get a chance to look at the slides & story this weekend.

Hot peppers strung to dry with thread and hanging in a cool, shady spot of my kitchen:

Tamdoll's Hot Peppers

Love spicy food, and this is the one plant that thrived, so I have an abundance of peppers.  Actually, I moved 2 of the pepper plants from my garden into my kitchen, so I’m hoping they will keep producing over the winter – or at least survive to get an early start next spring when the weather warms up again.

  1. The colours of the leaves on the "Fall Trees" are really gorgeous. Of course I've never seen any up close. Thanks for the tip on the bread. I have an oven that rarely gets used! School hols are coming up - will get the kids to bake something. It's really humid hot in Singapore this week. I feel a layer of heat envelope me the whole day.

  5. Oooh. Pretty.
    Yay bread! It's on my list of things to learn to properly bake. Right now I'm working on pastry.
