There are wild asters in the woods. They are a magnet for bees and butterflies.
Today was just about perfect....again. The leaves are changing before our very eyes. It looks like it will be a fast fall and we had better enjoy the nice weather while we can. Every fall, when I work out in the garden, I seem to get a cough. I think it's from the dusty garden and dead leaves mixed in. It's an asthma type thing. It's not anything that makes me ill.....just annoying. When we go for drives at harvest time, I can hardly stand driving down the country roads while they are cutting corn down.
We had chili mac for dinner. I love this simple dish. You just brown 1lb of ground beef with a chopped onion, chopped gr. pepper, add a can of diced tomatoes, a sm. can of tomato paste, then add some cooked macaroni and some chili powder, (cayenne if you are brave) 1/2 tsp cumin....1TBs. seasoned salt and pepper, and let it simmer for a while until thickened and then top with grated cheese. I've made it with a can of Chili No Beans, and also have added kidney beans. Very simple recipe....because you can add things and make it your own.
Well, gotta go and get ready for TV. Are you finding any new shows that are worth watching? I'm kind of tired of the DWTS and other musical shows. I'll be glad when Downton Abbey starts again.
