Another great fall day, and genealogy stuff

Where are we today ?
Rock Glen Resort Arkona Ontario
        Another great fall day, sunshine and almost warm weather. Great day to make a pot of soup. So while in Forest this morning I stopped by the grocery store found a a small "bone in ham" and some split yellow peas. Gonna make a pot of "French Canadian Pea soup" Trish reminded me that I made some last year about this time and enjoyed it. It's so good and just another comfort meal. The recipe is posted on my previous posting or check the recipe tab above. It is so simple and very tasty.

        Well made this huge pot for lunch and took the rest to Mike and Trish's, her Mom and Dad were there and they had just had lunch, her home made Lasagne soup. So we swapped some  soup and had a nice sample of their's too. 
        Next thing we know we are computing outside, Genealogy Stuff. Trish and Suzie are right into it and me just checking email on my Mac, all three of use enjoying the nice fall weather, computing and chatting away.
All three of us computing
         Now we have their Little dog Maggie (a.k.a. "Killer") watching and wanting to get into the acton as well.
can I help?
         Now she found a nice cozy spot,nside Suzie's  jacket and is getting right into it.

        Finally, shortly after 5 o'clock time to head home for supper. Fired up our Weber Q 100 grilled a couple burgers and heated up some pea soup for me and lasagne soup for Suzie. Kinda really hit the spot as the sun was going down and evening air cooling off, down to 50f (10c) 
yep and nice comforting supper
        Just another great fall day in the lives of us fulltimers. We enjoyed it, and hope you did yours too!

  1. Eat, eat, eat ... I gain a lot of weight just reading your blog and seeing all that food.

    1. Just look at small portions of food, a lot less calories.

  2. Yes it was a great day here for being outside as we'll...

  3. That is Paulette's favourite soup - thanks for the recipe, we'll be trying that one out for sure.

    1. No problem, it gets thicker after it cools down too, great for reheating!


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
