That really hit the spot tonight - I might even make another one tomorrow while I've got all the fixin's. 5:15 - dinner is done, kitchen is cleaned up and closed, and I'm heading out for a little walk.

Cheryl! I see what I think is ranch dressing, or is it crema? And what kind of cheese?

MsM, sending along more good wishes, hoping that you feel better soon.

Craig, hope your family has a fun birthday celebration for your granddaughter's special day.

Nice salad, Cheryl. I'll stop by for mine later...hold the tortilla crisps, please.


Himself is off astronomy-ing again tonight (he has fans*), so I thought I would surprise him with an unexpected dinner. He is about to walk into the smell of kielbasa and sauerkraut, simmered on the stove, along with potatoes fried with bacon, homemade applesauce, homemade pickles, and pickled beets. I had been thinking about this last night, then saw Steve's photo in last night's dinner thread and decided that I would stop at the little Polish store in-town. Six choices, but I brought half-loops of just two kinds.

* His "booking agent", AKA the owner of the dairy with the corn maze, called him today to make sure he was coming. Someone had called yesterday asking if the "telescope guy" was going to be there that night. Turned out no one was there last night since the maze is open only F/S/S. Himself is there F/S, sky permitting.

Thank you, Dawg , yes that's ranch dressing - the cheese is crumbled Cotija. I cut a corn tortilla into little slices and fried them, and that was nice for a little crunchy topping. Yum.

Thank you, CG...ok, I'll hold the crunchy tortilla crisps for your salad. Your dinner looks fabulous - been a while since I've had kielbasa and yours and Steve's posts are giving me the hungries for it.

Is Himself out astronomy-ing to see the Harvest Moon and partial eclipse tonight? I've only read a little about it today - should read more - looks like it won't be as visible here in the Americas as other parts of the world. I was up and out on my patio at almost 6 this morning, and that big bright orange moon was incredible!!

Cheryl, he's one of the activities featured at a local corn maze. Last summer we stopped at a dairy that makes its own ice cream and sells it at their stand. I noticed a poster for their upcoming autumn corn maze that had a theme "The Milky Way". I mentioned to the proprietress that Himself had studied astronomy in college and would do field presentations at public viewings back home. WELL, she is this ball of energy - wouldn't let up until Himself agreed to come down there with his 'scope opening weekend. Once he did it, he remembered how much fun it could be. Went back many clear Friday and/or Saturday nights. When she called this year, even though the theme is something entirely different, he said he'd show up. He really enjoys this, so it's fun to see him doing something more than sitting around reading or watching TV. I'm glad to see he's back to getting use out of his equipment, too. When he bought the telescope/tripod/gear in the mid 1980's, it ran $2400!

The lunar eclipse occurred during daylight hours in the U.S. It was the other side of the globe that got to see it this time. Full moon actually makes it harder to see the stars and planets, but newbies to sky viewing still get a kick out of seeing the terrain on the moon. Alas, as good as his 'scope is, he can't spot the flag John Glen planted on the moon.
