Adam and Eve Rocks, cooler weather and home made soup for a perfect September day.

Where are we today ?

        This morning it was quite cool (45f) and remained that way all day did not get much about 65 F. So needed a sweater and longer pants for most of the day. But heck we just not used to it. The heat wave will be coming back next week again.
       So today a was a good one to make a large pot of homemade Turkey Noodle soup from that huge 10 lb turkey we cooked on our Weber Q last Sunday. We ate for 5 days with that Turkey for $9.90 and still some in the freezer and lots more soup, now that was a great deal.
        Got the carcass boiling at 6:30am for a couple hours and made a wonderful broth,. While that was going on I got a couple nice walkabouts the campground and noticed the wonderful sumach in the morning sun.
looks so colorful in the morning sun  
      Then a quick trip into Buckhorn just down the road for a few supplies. Spotted a sign for the "Adam & Eve Rocks" so had to check it out. A wonderful spot to check out these huge glacial rocks with a nice story attached to them.
this is them
       On my way back down the road spotted these wild turkeys running down the shoulder. Such a nice site to see right here in the village. Where is the turkey hunters when we need them? Great eating.
        Now home and the turkey broth is ready to strain, pick the bones and add some fixings. Onion, celery, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, bay leaves, garlic, spices and egg noodles.
     The soup was done in time for lunch and once again so tasty, perfect for a cooler day.
love home made soup for lunch
     Then some nice afternoon reading time in the shade , kinda cool but dressed for it. Reading a new science fiction novel Seveneves by Neal Stephenson 880 pages and I am hooked. Can hardly put it down.
      But we we got invited to Emile and Moniques' for Happy hour at 3:30 so had to go, just because we can. Chatted for a while told stories and exchanged ideas, Steve and Gail stopped by to join us as  well. Then time to head home to whip up supper.
yup we happy
      For supper tonight pan fried Basa fillets with fish crisp on our Weber Q.
As I have mentioned before
the grilled lemon is so juicy
         Added that to a salad and cantaloupe and had a very nice healthy tasty meal.
was wonderful
       Now enjoying a cooler evening outside reading (dressed accordingly) until things cool down and time to head inside.
       Hope you had a wonderful day as well enjoying this much cooler weather and thanks bunches for stopping on by.

  1. I think you can read this before you finish the book, without it spoiling anything important for you:

  2. I remember studying erratics at school but have never seen any knowingly. Very square looking. I suppose as they weren't shaped by water. Don't those turkeys know you were boiling a fellow fowl.

    1. There is a lot of these Glacial Erratics all over this area which makes it quite beautiful.
      Think maybe the turkeys were running away from me,lol.

  3. Days have cooled down here. Summer isn't really gone but it is. At least the hot, hot days are. Your turkey soup looks wonderful. I always like fixing that after we have turkey too. Enjoy yourselves.

    1. Yes almost sad when the weather cools down and the days get shorter.
      Love homemade soups especially, chicken or turkey.

  4. According to the forecast, we aren't done with the hot hot yet, check out Tuesday. I'm great with that, not ready for the cool stuff to stick around yet either. Have to ask if you and your sweetie touched the rock together holding hands? I certainly hope so!

  6. That 45 degree weather sounds awfully good to me (and I don't even like cold weather). Left a hot Ohio... now in Glen Rose at 89 degrees. Enough already! I, too, love a pot of soup, a good book and preferable a cat on my lap when the weather turns cold.
