After all the rain yesterday this morning has broken clear and beautiful. A perfect fall day. Yesterday we drove 60 miles to get Norman’s eyes taken care of and the doctor said the degeneration was stable, no sign of a bleed or fluid of any kind so this month he doesn’t need a shot. We will get an appointment in Florida as soon as we get there and they will see if he needs one in Dec. Then it was 60 miles back home in the rain. Because today is so nice we did some outside chores. We transplanted the mums for Joe. We got Joe and Holly two nice big mums but they were so big and top heavy they would not stand up without tipping over and breaking off some flowers so we put them into bigger pots. Then they can transplant them into their garden or just leave them in the pots. One of them got frost bitten a little so isn’t as pretty as it was but still is a pretty plant and will come back next year. Then we went down to get a couple parsnips for dinner. This is what we got!!
At his size we only took one. I will bake this with sweet potato, zucchini and banana peppers. This one will make a whole chookie sheet full add olive oil, salt and pepper and yum, yum!! The bigger they are the sweeter they are.
This one weighed about 2 and a quarter pounds so you see when I say we have parsnips I don’t measure them by the bushel , I go by the piece!! Time to get cooking. Have a great day.
