Well we have made it past the average frost date of Sept 20th. We actually made it TWO weeks past that. That is quite amazing! Thank you Lord for the extra time! This is only the second time we even made it to the average frost date. Normally we get a frost by the end of the first week in September. See, quite amazing!
We had a run of a few cool days and it put me in the mood for soup. I've always been a fan of soup. Anything that goes well with fresh bread slabbed with fresh butter is going to be a winner in my book. I don't know if I like the bread and butter or the soup better. Maybe that's why they go so well together- no need to choose!
Well I have finally found a way to get my husband to eat beets. He now eats beets chips and asks for more! I have to say these are truly scrumptious. Frying them takes away that slight dirt like flavor beets are known for and replaces it with a slightly sweet flavor.
We also made chips out of the greens but beware. The greens cause the oil to pop and splatter. The kids love them but mom can only take so much of that so we don't do to many of the greens.
