Festivals and Fairs

Most of you know that we have
alot of these here in the Kansas
City area.

Here in Lenexa we start the Fall
off with the Lenexa Spinach Festival.
A fun time celebrating the "Spinach
Capital of the World." Back in the
day Belgium farmers planted tons
of Spinach and a "capital" was born.
Popeye and Olive Oil always make
an appearance.


Lots and lots of craft and food
booths. The Lenexa Historical
Society sponsors the spinach
food booth. One can find spinach
pizza, wraps, dips, cupcakes and
the "world's LARGEST spinach


Plus bounce houses, face painting,
pole fishing and much more for
the kids.


Last Sunday we went to the
Plaza Art Fair.


Fun for the kids.


The Nelson Art Gallery's
new exhibit announcement.


Beautiful glass art work.


This is one of our favorite
artists. He sculpts from
bronze and each one take
30 hours to sculpt. Look
closely--you can see her
shadow behind her. High
dollar stuff here.


One of the four music stages.


Look who came to the fair.

E is for...

Extra sleep

When we "fall back" as
daylight saving time ends
we attempt to get some
extra sleep.

It doesn't always work but
we try.

(Remember yesterday, I
said this would stretch
your imagination.)

Tomorrow is F.

Dancing leaves

I love to watch the leaves dance
in the wind, often wondering
where they will end up. NOW
if I am raking, this DOES NOT
apply! :)

D is for...

Daylight Saving Time Ending

This takes place in early November.

D is for...


No not the kind that goes with
chips. I am referring to when
the temperatures take a dip.
One day it is warm and the
next has a bit of a bite to it.

Have a wonderful first week-
end of Fall! We will continue
tomorrow with E and I will
tell you now it will be a

stretch of the imagination.

With crackers &cheese
or cornbread. Everyone
makes their chili different
so I am not posting a recipe.

Something different about
our chili is that I use Pork
and Beans. I am not a fan
of beans, when I was little
this was how my Mom
made it.

What makes your chili
different from others?

Louisburg Cider Mill

A is for...


A is for Autumn---

The origin of the word comes
from the Latin "autumnus."
Harvest was the English name
for the season until autumn
displaced it in the 16th century.
Here in the US we flip between
"Fall" and "Autumn." I most
usually use Fall when I am talking
about the season. How about YOU?

A is for Apples---

There are so many varieties of
apples today and and not all parts
of the country have the same kind.
My faves are Golden Delicious and
Pink Lady. What is yours?

One can make many things with
apples and one of them is...

Slow Cooker Applesauce

In a 5-6 qt slow cooker, toss
together 6 lb Gala apples (about
12 peeled, cored, and cut into
1/2 in pieces), a 2 inch piece
of fresh ginger (peeled and grated)
and 1 cinnamon stick.
Cook until the apples break down

when stirred, 7-8 hours on low
5-6 hours on high. Stir in 1 tsp.
pure vanilla extract.

Makes 8 cups

Recipe from Women's Day
October 2014 issue

Stop by tomorrow for B.
