At our house the last couple of weeks....

We had a visit from our college girls and a couple of their  roommates. It was fun to meet and get to know them:)
The kids have been shelling and cleaning corn so we can use it to make cornmeal.

 A miracle day-Brent and Jonathan let me take a picture of them!  They even smiled:)
 Making pizza together Sunday after church
 I've been trying to develop some skills with cooking outdoors, so I have been cooking outdoors Monday evenings.  I got a sweet deal on a "Ultimate Turkey Cooker" on Craig'slist.  So, I tried it out-forgot to get a picture before we dived in.  It only takes about an hour to cook a turkey because is is cooking from the inside out, as well as the outside in.  Pretty cool!

 This was also part of my craigslist deal, so I tried it out last week.  We made some stew.  The rolls didn't turn out too good-they ended up on the driveway for the cats.  Yes, you have to preheat the pan before you try to cook the rolls.  Just sayin...
 We got some snow-some of the flowers hadn't frozen yet, so it was a pretty contrast.

 One of the benefits of doing homeschool-we called a recess and the kids got to play in the snow before it melted.  Gotta be quick for that!  :)
 A Leaf Snowman;)

 Got some flowers at Lowe's for 75% off, so I've been planting pansies, johny-jump-ups, & snapdragons.  They aren't minding the cold weather so far, and are doing good.

I've never heard of an ultimate turkey cooker....I'm intrigued. What did you think of it? And it came with a volcano? That's awesome........we do have one of those. Have you seen this site? It might give you some new ideas for your outdoors cooking. :). http://dutchovenmadness.blogspot.com
