We went to Hiawassee, Georgia this past weekend and it was absolutely beautiful! We stayed at the Georgia Mountain State Campground. It's right on Lake Chatuge. The weather was so much cooler there than here! It probably got up to eighty, when the sun was shining, but it was cloudy a lot with spotty rain. The air was almost chilly at night. Here, we're still muggy and in the 80's! There's a chance of strong storms during the middle of the night since there's a cold front moving through. (I don't like getting awakened in the middle of the night to loud thunder!) The high tomorrow is supposed to be in the lower 70's. Finally! Some cooler weather for here.
I'm still working on my Halloween wreaths and decor. I don't know why I got into that this year, but I'm having fun with it. I wonder if I can sell these wreaths? I surely don't need them all! I might list them on Craig's list and see what happens. I also need to list the bucklings and try to get them sold. No one wants to pay the price for a blue-eyed Nigerian Dwarf! I wished I'd known that before I invested in them! I believe the right person will eventually come along and buy them. I have to have faith!
I purchased a candy-roaster pumpkin at a farm-like stand on our trip and roasted it this morning. It gave me enough for two pies and some pumpkin humus. I found the recipe reference at http://shadygroveadventures.blogspot.com/2014/10/roasted-pumpkin-hummus-delicious.html Yay! I did it! It is delicious! But of course I made some changes to it by using Great Northern Beans instead of chick peas, and whole sesame seeds instead of the tahini. Use what you've got or what you like, right? I also made some pita chips from white tortillas that I cut, sprayed with coconut spray, sprinkled with salt, and baked at 450 for about 8 minutes. Talk about good! Yum! Thank you for sharing this Lisa!
I sure do enjoy this time of year! Even though it's still warm and humid, there are changes all around. The leaves are showing more yellows now than green, and I love the smell in the air. Autumn is almost my favorite time of the year! I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading and commenting! Blessings from Bama!
