What’s cooking

So today Ohiophotogrl brought home some ready to bake cookies for us to make.

I put on my apron and laid the cookies on the cookie sheet while we preheated the oven to 350 degrees. Slid them on to the center rack and set a timer for 12 minutes.

MMMMMMMM fresh baked chocolate chip cookies for dessert tonight. But Ohiophotogrl stole one before we put them up for later…

Wonder what where gonna do next?

Baby it’s cold outside

Here in the 937 we were expecting to get 6-10 inches of snow yesterday. The good news was it wasn’t suppose to happen till after 3. So Ohiophotogrl and I went to the movies with some friends to see Marry Poppins Returns. What a fun, creative movie. Here is me with my snacks…

After the movie we checked the radar and they where just calling for rain till like 6pm. So we talked it all out and decided to stick around and watch Aquaman!

We got our tickets and found our seats. Our theater has recliner style seats that even have heat! Ohiophotogrl was really happy with that. We sat next to a young man that was really fun to sit with. After seeing the movie myself I’m not sure it was a kid friendly movie. Why do I say that….there where lots of bad words in the movie. Every time someone said one the 6 year old next to me would giggle. But excluding the curse words it was a good movie. The cinematography was really good!

Anyway it is really cold here in the 937. Gonna have to really bundle up. I let the dogs out this morning and they didn’t stay out long at all. Neither did I…

But I did build a snowman real quick!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

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!

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

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

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!
