First: There's the corner by my front door. Love the little scarecrow and it makes me smile when I go to the door.
Second: It's finally cool enough to have heartier food. Today it's speckled beans to which I'll add pork neck bones Just enough meat to give it flavor.
Third: The smell of fresh baking bread, is there anything better. I use a bread machine because it makes my life easier. I just pour in the ingredients and it does the rest. I make honey wheat bread and it's so good it almost tastes like cake.
Fourth: Miss Kitty loves Fall, all summer she lays around sleeping about 26 hours a day (yes I know there are only 24 hours in a day, but we're talking cat hours). Then comes Fall and she's on the move. Yesterday she took out the screen in the backdoor trying to get to a lizard, today she's considering whether she can go through glass to get to another.
Fifth: I learned that Lima Beans, also known as Butter Beans are poisonous if eaten raw, they contain cyanide. I knew that kidney beans (read about that in a Felix Francis book) have to be thoroughly cooked or they can be dangerous, but I didn't know about Lima Beans. They recommend cooking uncovered and dumping the water . Notice mine are covered, but then they were already mostly cooked when I started them.
That's my Five, have a good weekend.
