Circleville Pumpkin Show

Today I thought we would take a walk through the Circleville Pumpkin Show, 'the greatest free show on earth'.

A community coming together to celebrate agriculture, homemade, handmade, and of course all things pumpkins.

Our Lives Are The Dash

Our lives are the dash ( - )

The dash on the tombstone nestled between our date of birth and our date of death.

Years ago a Pastor gave a sermon about making the most of our dash.

Something I ponder often...

(These pictures were taken from an airplane window last week.)

Farm Sitters

It's inevitable.
Sometimes you need to go away and sometimes you just want to go away.

When you have chickens (or other animals), a little planning is needed before you pack those bags.

If you go away for a day trip, a friend or neighbor can minimally take care of your animals.
If gone for longer periods of time, we hire farm sitters.

I entice them with food, pay, and a list.

Tucking Fall Into Our Lives

Fall is my absolute favorite season!
Tucking a little fall into our lives makes my heart sing.

I love to feel the crisp air that blows through the house when the windows are open.

Black Bean Burger

Black bean burger.

This is a first for me.

I had never eaten a bean burger before.

I love a good 'ole hamburger.
I didn't make this to stray away, I simply wanted to try something different.

Pretty good, I must say...

Buckeye Bars


Chocolate and peanut butter.
The delicious combination that is a favorite among many people, me included.

I love the traditional round buckeye, after all I'm from the Buckeye state of Ohio. ;-)
But, I don't like the labor intense process of making buckeyes.

You don't either?
Well, I have a solution for you.
You can enjoy the flavor without the l-o-n-g process of making them...

Ta Da!
I give you buckeye bars.

You make them in a 9x13 dish and cut them into squares.

If you're going to make them for an 'occasion', make sure you mark them so your family won't devour them!

When I recently made these for my daughter's tennis team, I covered them with foil and marked them with a warning wrote in capital letters, 'DO NOT EAT!!'

Here's the easy recipe...

Buckeye Bars

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (1 sleeve of graham crackers)
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
10 ounces milk chocolate chips
6 tablespoons cooking oil

Soften peanut butter and butter in the microwave.
Stir in graham cracker crumbs and powdered sugar.
Mix well.
Pat mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 dish.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave.
Stir in cooking oil.
Pour over graham cracker crust.
Refrigerate for several hours.
Cut into squares.

Sit back and enjoy the applause that  you will receive!
