Beth, do you leave your carrots in the ground all winter? How do they do?

The mixers need frequent use or they get cranky.

They do great. We grow a large long carrot and they sorta hibernate when it gets cold. You need to cover them with adequate hay so the tops of the carrots and the surrounding ground does not freeze. I plant in several small plots around the garden to foil any rodents. The past several years we have had no animal damage to the carrots. Also, we plant a lot of carrots so any loss is not noticed.

Indeed. I took garlicjosh's advice and we used the last of the "slightly dense" bread I made earlier this week to make French toast for our lazy Sunday morning brunch. It was dee-lish!

i made a pumpkin dump cake today. of course i fooled with the recipe. called for spice cake, used a yellow cake mix. called for evaporated milk, i used sweetened condensed milk. i left out the 1/2 cup of white sugar. added 3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice and a teaspoon maple flavoring in the pumpkin,eggs,milk part. used 3/4 cup melted butter for the top.

next time will use a cup of butter, had a few dry spots in the topping. will add a bit more spice, next time.

if anyone wants the whole recipe , just ask!
