    The rain finally let up again and we enjoyed wonderful sleep again. Up nice and early get some computing done and pot of coffee made for our good friends stopping by shortly after 7 am on their way to Florida. For a coffee and I had just made  fresh pot special for them.
     These friends be Gerry, Melinda and of course Tucker. As usual Tucker is excited to see us and right away had to jump right up and give Suzie a kiss.

     They still have a long drive today, and wanted to get back on the road again, So glad that they did stop on by, Safe travels guys and enjoy your winter.
Tucker says hey Dad you ready to go?
I'm driving.
    As they were leaving we got to enjoy a wonderful sunrise here right on our campsite.
love the sunshine and mist across the fields
       A bit later I took another walkabout the Arena area next to this campground. Lotsa horses here and I did get to take a few nice pics.
       I had started early this morning boiling up the bones from last nights chicken to make tasty broth for soup.
        After a few hours, I strained the broth and added the veggies and spices and lt simmered for another 2 hours. Now we have a very hearty soup for lunch today and a few more.
this was excellent and very tasty
a wonderful light lunch again
do love our homemade soups
    After lunch a drive into town pick up batteries for our smoke detectors , Time change tonight so this is when we do it. We supposed to get an extra hours sleep tonight, hope I can do it!
the horse place next stop they doing stuff
      While on my walkabouts I picked up a few pocket fulls of pecans. And brought them back home thinking I could  crack a few outside on this wonderful  very warm sunny after noon.
        We have to Pecan cracker that makes this a pretty easy job. With Suzie's help we were done on no time, plus enjoying this wonderful sunny day.
started with this
in the bowl was our haul today 
     Abut 4:30pm time to start supper . Tonight  fish and chips, Cod fillets and fresh cut fries did the trick in our Fry Daddy.
now this took care of a craving and we enjoyed it
    After supper outside enjoying the warm weather and new friends Rudy and Lorea stopped by to chat and catch up for a while, They are leaving in the morning.
the birds in these trees an amazing
so loud
Glad that Lorea and Rudy stopped by again for a visit
4 times this year. They heading out in  the morning
   Even though we had not much to do we were busy and really enjoyed the day.                  Thanks  for dropping in and hope you had great one as well,

  1. Sounds like a lovely day. Always nice to be abLe to spend time with friends.

    1. It was a very nice day, and meeting with friends is always fun too.

  2. I love the picture of the sun and the mist on the field!

  3. TUCKER! Looks like he sure missed Suzi! Nice to catch up with friends, both two and four legged. Anxious to see what you do with all those pecans

    1. Tucker does get excited when he sees Suzie he was in such a hurry to get in the coach he stumbled going up the steps.Have been nibbling at the pecans, Think I will freeze them for now and make some pecan tarts in the future

  4. Always great fun to meet old friends and new ones on the road.

  5. Just catching up reading your blog. Really enjoyed the trip through memory lane with all the 1950s memorabila. Looked for the old Lance Cracker jars, but I knew they had to be in there somewhere.

    You are piling up some pecans; thought I would give you my mother-in-law's recipe for pecan pie. She was a great southern cook.

    One pie crust
    One cup of sugar
    Two tablespoons of all-purpose flour
    Three eggs (preferably room temperature)
    One stick of oleo margarine (preferably Blue Bonnet)
    One cup of WHITE Karo syrup
    One cup of chopped pecans
    One teaspoon of vanilla

    Mix sugar, flour, and oleo margarine (let margarine soften a little before mixing).
    Beat eggs.
    Add eggs to mixture and mix again.
    Add syrup, vanilla, and chopped pecans and mix again.
    Pour mixture into one large pie crust or three small Pet Ritz pie crusts.
    Top mixture with whole pecan halves.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    On center rack, bake pies for 10 minutes.
    Then, lower oven temperature to 325 degrees.
    Continue baking for 50 minutes.
    Then, after removing pies from oven, let them cool.

    Good with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

    1. Thanks Dee, that recipe is very similar to my recipe for pecan tarts.

  6. So nice that you got to see Gerry and Melinda.....Tucker too.
    Soup looks good.

    1. It sure was nice that they had time to stop in for a short visit , Always enjoy their company. The soup very tasty thanks.

  7. What a great thing that Melinda, Gerry and Tucker stopped by on their trip through. Keep on truckin' though is the way to go.
    Great find with the pecans and handy that you have the cracker.
    Your soup looks good. I have chicken bones and some chicken in the freezer leftover for a soup once we settle a bit more. :)

    1. It was nice that they had time to stop by for a coffee. Love the fresh pecans have had that cracker since 2006 and works wonderfully. Always enjoy a homemade soup.

  8. What a nice sunrise! Your soup looks really thick and delicious for sure. Great haul on the pecans! Pecan anything sounds wonderful! Nice to be so near the arena and see all the horses and people.

    1. It was nice to see these guys again especially Tucker. Lotsa pecans here but n9t as many as past years. Not sure yet what I will make yet so probably freeze them for now.

  9. No matter where you are you have friends, pretty neat. Hope the weather stays warm for you.

    1. Seems that way, we do meet a lot of people in our travels for the last 20 years or more.
      Looks like we getting some rain, but not cold and that's a good thing.
