It's Autumn at Scotty's Place.
♥ LOVE ♥
Let's go inside and see what's cookin'...
First, my latest tea obsession is this tea.
Add about 2 tsp honey and the juice of 1/4th a lemon.
Don't forget the doggies. They have to eat too, ya know.
It's snack time!
Someone asked about the food dehydrator Ken uses.
This is it. He ordered it online and highly recommends it.
He did his research before deciding on this one.
Cost: $62.35 on Amazon
He dehydrated two large bunches of celery this weekend.
Amazingly, it dehydrated down to less than a cup of dried celery!
It'll be so easy to use this for soups this winter.
Speaking of soup, I made a really good one last week...
Ingredients for Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
It turned out SO GOOD!
We ate it for two meals and then I froze enough for another meal.
You can find the recipe here: Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
Do you know what this is?
It's the BEST Rice Pudding you'll ever eat, that's what!
I can't begin to tell you how good this is. Comfort food at its best. I made myself sick cuz I ate too much one evening. Not so comforting when you do that! I couldn't help myself, but I won't do that again. I felt so sick I had to go lie down for about 30 minutes until it passed. How pathetic am I that I can't control my eating like that? You can find the recipe here: Helen's Rice Pudding
(Do y'all get that reference to the movie Dude, Where's My Car? I'm ashamed that I even watched it. It was Ken's fault!! Anyway, this group of boys was ordering from a Chinese drive-thru window and everytime they'd order a dish, the Chinese lady would come through the speaker and say, "And theeeeen?" And they just kept ordering and ordering because she was saying that. Maybe you had to be there. LOL. Now you know.)
I made hamburgers and fried onions one day while the painting was going on.
Holy Moly, they were good!
I'm surprised we didn't both keel over from a heart attack though.
I made this Margarita Pizza yesterday for the race.
Martha White pizza crust mix (thin crust), Chef Boyardee pizza sauce, fresh basil, fresh mozzarella and a little regular-grated mozzarella, thinly-sliced Roma tomatoes, and a sprinkle of oregano. Eight minutes in a 475 F oven. Yummy!
Is that enough food?
I think so.
I got my picture frames painted RED and hung them in the office.
Those are some of our dogs we've had that are now deceased...
The Dead Dog Wall of Fame.
From the top: Phoebe, Abby, Nicki (with me), and Little Boy.
It's sad to think we'll be adding to it some day. Gah.
But this cheers me right up...
My adorable little Ollie.
Very much alive and well.
