Apple Pie

Mrs J made enough pie dough for two crusts.  Her plan was for one peach pie with conventional crusts top and bottom but she was easily talked into making the Martha Stewart crumble topping.  That recipe makes enough for two pies.  You see where this is going.One peach pie.  One apple pie.  Two enter, none leave.  That is the Way of the Kitchen.

I Like Pie!

Peaches are in!  Yay!  We used this Taste Of Home recipe for the pie filling, and Martha Stewart’s crumb topping recipe.

Moose!

Looking through my photos from yesterday I realized I never took any shots of the beautiful Grand Lake, where we spent most of the day. Oh, well, next time. The moose was fun, though. Still hoping for a more close up encounter, so the hunt continues.

 



 

Spaghetti and Meatball

I wanted to make the title to this post Spaghetti and Meatballs, but the HTML strikethrough magic doesn’t work in the title bar.

The turkey family has pretty much grown up.  They like to scratch up a dusty spot to flop in.

Wild turkeys dust, sun and preen from a young age, about 2-4 days old. Dusting is usually a flock activity. A dust bath is part of a bird’s preening and plumage maintenance that keeps feathers in top condition. Turkeys will flap frantically in the dirt to spread dust over their entire body. Doing so keeps feathers from becoming greasy or matted. Sunning and preening often follow a dust bath as part of their extensive grooming regimen.
