Autumn But for the Dogs

Autumn decorating this year will be kept to a minimum 
because of these guys.

Just look at these cute little 4 1/2-month-old faces!
These brothers like to chew and play with anything
that half-way tempts them. That means anything
within their reach!  (See the corner of the mat?)

They really are good little boys and they are learning...

What they haven't learned yet is staying out of the
dirty small pond which they were in before the above pic.
They don't get to come inside when they've been in that pond.
They haven't figured that out yet either.

Thanks for visiting.

Tomorrow is the first day of October and
with it brings the official color of Orange.
Are we ready?


Beginnings of Autumn

This Autumn, after a 28-hour and three-day drive,
I have relocated myself to Kansas.

Although I have been to Kansas many times,
this will be my first time experiencing a beautiful
changing of the season that I hear so much about.

Driving through the countryside, I am seeing signs
of Summer fading and Autumn approaching.

The hay has been baled and sits drying in fields.

 The fields of sunflowers are fading as their
beautiful faces no longer look to the sun but begin to 
face downward as they turn to seed.

The soybeans are turning yellow as their seed pods
on their tops turn brown.  I think I heard soybeans
are grown in the Midwest for fuel.

Even the corn has turned brown as I peek
through the roadside wildflowers.

What I am truly looking forward to are the leaves
changing on the trees and foliage.
As you can see, on this last day of September,
I am seeing just glimpses of what I am told
will be spectacular and I can't wait!

Thank you for visiting!

Lemon and Pistachio Cake with White Chocolate Sour Cream Icing

This cake is simple to make and delicious.

I recently made it as the dessert for an outdoor dinner.
You can see more of that dinner HERE.

 The cake is made with cake flour and ground pistachios along
with yogurt, lemon juice, and lemon zest. The icing
 is to die for! As simple as melting a bar of white chocolate 
and combining it (once it has cooled a little bit!) with sour cream.

 I want to give due credit to the source of this recipe 
(at least where I found it) which can be found HERE but
 beware, there are some measurements listed in metric
that can be easily converted by searching on your iPhone.

This is a keeper recipe!

Thank you for stopping by!

I will be joining the following blog party:
