November 1st

Last night was trick or treat here I the 937. I couldn’t decide what to wear so I did costume changes.

Ok maybe more than a few but a Tator has to have options ya know! Hope you all had a safe and fun night last night. We had about 25 trick or treaters. Rain dampened the night but Ohiophotogrl has fun running around to all the neighbors to see what kind of candy they had….I’m not sure she will ever grow up. I think I’m ok with that!

Here is to a great November!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Applesauce

With fall being just a day or two away Ohiophotogrl thought we should make some homemade applesauce. It’s apple season hear in the 937 so we went out to Peifers Orchard for some local grown apples. This batch will be made with just apples, water and lemon juice to start. Then we will add some spices like cinnamon:0)

First thing we To is peel and core the apples

With the Apple peeler in the top photo it cores the Apple at the same time it’s peeling so it makes fast work out of getting the apples ready. Then we throw them in the pan with the water and lemon juice….

But a lid on it and wait for it to get all tender so we can squish it all up for our applesauce.

Then we will can it and it will look like this

Where Have I Been

Sorry for disappearing on you. Ohiophotogrl and I have had some crazy times. So much so that I’ve been taking the photos and not being in them. I told her it was crazy but she insisted that I do a blog post about her crazy few weeks. First off we went to the Cincinnati Scotty Friends Convention. She dressed for every event….

She made everyone laugh and have a good time! We spent a week with some good friends! Then we got home and cleaned out the garage! We can fit a car in there now.

Then as we were cleaning the garage we heard a very loud crashing sound from the back yard

Huge tree limb fell! Crazy….Ohiophotogrl was just on her way outback when it happened. Thank God everyone was ok because we had to call someone to come get it out of the yard it was so big.

But now we are back to getting some routine in our lives. Let’s hope that happens soon! Take care and I’ll be back soon!

Oh The Places We Do Go

Last night Ohiophotogrl and I went to First Friday in the Oregon District. On the first Friday of every month all the shops are open till 9 or later and there are street performers and people playing music in the street. This month we checked out a place called 416 Dinner.

The have the most wonderful potato twists there that you will ever have! Ohiophotogrl got a grilled cheese that was quite yummy and our pal ScottyScouts got a veggie burger. MMMMM they even have a kids menu.

The place seats about 25-30 people I would guess but the owner came over and talked with us and the waitress did a great job as well. Pretty sure we have a new favorite place.

They have vegetarian options and they have gluten free desserts! You really should go check them out if your in downtown Dayton, Ohio. There actual location is 416 E 5th St.

Tomorrow is Love Day

I couldn’t figure out what to do for Ohiophotogrl for Valentines Fay so I started searching Pinterest. I put my apron on

And pulled out some ingredients

I also found some melting chocolate so guess what I made…

How cute are those! They are now in the fridge getting cold to serve with dinner! I am one crafty potato!

Wonder what we’ll do next!

I’m ready are you

Here in the 937 we got hit with a few inches of snow last night

It was really bad this morning, but as you can see the roads are now clear. That little spot by my nose…..it’s a resident squirrel. He came down from his nest to get the corn I left him :0)

I am so ready for spring! I ordered some seeds for the garden and they came in the mail yesterday!

This isn’t everything I’m gonna plant but a variety of the things I want to grow. Do you have a Garden? What do you like to plant in your garden? Stay tuned as it gets closer to spring, we will be getting the garden ready and even planting some starters ahead of time! I love to garden! This year we ordered heirloom seeds from http://www.rareseeds.com no gmos. We will be sharing more about this as time goes on!
