We'd picked them from the ravine by my MILs place this summer and then froze them. It was darned tasty!

I was using up stuff in my fridge, freezer and cupboards today too - so no! No tears!!

But I think we both deserve some of these>

Wouldn't you agree?

That looks wonderful!

Year ago I had Saskatoons in a sort of preserve over hot buttered scones with a plop of cream, unforgettable!

Thanks Aunt Bea! They are my husband's very favorite.

Stirling made pasta with tomato sauce (store bought organic) and cut up, fried sausages that had been grilled. It was pretty good.

I went over to the garden and picked 4 eggplants. Sliced them lengthwise and thick and grilled them. Served with some potatoes au gartin and some corn on the cob.

I might have to get some sort of meat dish soonish.

Such wonderful sounding food here! Alix, I would LOVE a slice of that pie.

Grilled chicken and 'taters this evening. Yummy.

We had a fun day today. At least it was fun for me (and that's what counts, right?). Made a Penzeys Pilgrimage (not bad - got out for $48 plus two freebies), picked up fresh apple cider, and hit Five Guys for fries. When we got home I used up the drippings I had collected from the Baltimore beef, made gravy and added a little more from a jar, then heated the beef in the gravy. Not real hungry after the fries so had the beef with sliced tomato and Niblets corn. Moved on to the wine when the baseball game was over... *sigh* Well, at least I can get back to reading now!

Try using some of that fresh squeezed apple cider for a Stone Fence cocktail.

A highball glass filled with ice, 1 1/2 - 2 ounces of Rye, Bourbon or Rum add apple cider to taste.
