the imperfect but tasty breadsticks - they are more uniform when the bakers haven't been drinking wine!
|rolling out the sourdough breadsticks - yum!|
We played Sequence and finally a good ol' family favorite - 500 Rummy. Boy we get excited over that card game.
Sandi got the tour of the ranch, met the Dots for the first time, gathered eggs and got to pet a couple hens including "Goldie" who was so happy to see me since they are now free range again once we got the flower beds planted with bulbs and covered with chicken wire. I have to admit it is fun to have an animal like you enough to come running when you enter the yard. Sandi is taking several dozen eggs back to Denver. When I gardened this summer, I put up produce with the idea of sharing with her. As you can see, she benefited from the bounty of the summer!
|Eggs, homemade bread, homemade ketsup, jams of many flavors, pickles, pickled beets, marinara sauce and cherry pie; endamame, corn on the cob and some meat locally raised round out the bounty she is taking home.|

TG day opened with below zero temps and high wind but today it is 52 balmy degrees and no wind. Lovely!
