Today I'm dreaming that I am sitting by the lake at Georgia Veterans State Park

...reading my book. I'm reading a John Grisham book, PLAYING FOR PIZZA. A pretty good read for the subject being football. I used to watch football all the time. Somehow over the years I've just gotten too lazy to go to the bedroom and watch sports. It is no fun watching on a 13" screen anyway.

This weather has been fall-like with temperatures in the mid forties in the morning and in the low seventies for the high in the afternoon. The weather is just perfect for camping.. oh that should be rving :-) We still cook on an open fire sometimes, but most of the time I just heat something up in the microwave when we are out... it is hard to have fun when you have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so I keep it simple. I usually cook extras in the weeks prior to our trip and freeze the meals and reheat in the microwave. My husband cooks Slum Goodie over the camp fire... he just doesn't think it is camping without doing so. Maybe soon we can go camping.. er.. rving.

Fall means the peppers will soon be gone. This is the last of the banana peppers.

They have tasted very good this year. They are sweet except when you use the seeds too and then they are slight bit warm.

I made a pot roast today. I cooked it in the cast iron dutch oven... I haven't done that in a while. It sure is good... it just seems to taste better cooked in the cast iron pot. (I should have taken pictures, but I was so hungry) We have enough for tomorrow. I can get the pot into the oven, but getting it out is another thing.. so Frank lifted the pot out of the oven. He is so handy to have around :-)

  3. Thank you, Grammy. The roast was even better today. Thank you for the link.

  4. Thanks so much for visiting me...I daydream about just such a peaceful place myself...I agree, everything tastes better in cast iron.

    Warm Regards,

  5. Your roast sounds yummy---especially cooked in a cast iron pot!!

  6. Everything taste better cooked in cast iron but you are right; it is heavy and hard to handle. I've said this before but your pictures are great! Camping, er, RVing is a lot like "sittin on the porch" when I was a child. We've lost the art of sittin on the porch and that is a shame. Need to slow down and watch the leaves turn, smell the flowers, enjoy!
