As we all woke up Tuesday morning and turned on the local news with our morning coffee the pictures started to show up of the devastation left behind by hurricane Sandy. Our heart goes out to all that sit in darkness and to all that have lost not only loved ones but property as well to Sandy. Coming from coastal Louisiana I know hurricanes well and the fear and destruction that accompany them. You are all in our prayers. For those of my regular readers on the east coast and especially the northeast please leave a comment and check in for me. I'm a worrier : ) Heck everybody just check in if you want and tell me how Sandy impacted you!
So with my mind on the storm and it's aftermath I decided to spend the day in a little kitchen therapy. Knowing Halloween was Wednesday I decided to bake my little ghouls some fresh cookies as goodies. We don't really get many trick or treaters but the few that I do get always get homemade treats and they usually always show up year after year.
I threw some home grown sweet potatoes in the crockpot
Went out and picked some turnip greens and a few turnips when I picked up the eggs that morning.
Threw on a pot of field peas
And made a skillet of crusty buttermilk cornbread. And with all this we will have pan cooked bass caught from our pond this summer.
I spent the day just tinkering in the kitchen and listening to some quiet gospel music. Cleaning out the fridge. Making salad dressing for the week.
And making Halloween cookies. These are called buffalo cookies and you can find them over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook blogspot. Go over for a visit cause them mennonite girls sure can cook!
