Kids enjoying home made donuts
I have been all talk and no action for the last year on making donuts! Finally an overcast day with nothing to do! The girls and I made the dough this morning and let it chill for 2 hours. We had a neighbo over wo of course wanted to help! I used a basic recipe from a Betty Crocker cookbook. They turned out pretty good but next time I will add a bit more nutmeg and some vanilla extract.

We used some leftover frosting – next time I will make a glaze.

Home made donut holes
I love donut holes. Next time I will make them a bit bigger!

Bush early girl tomatoes
These are my tomatoes this year – I am getting a lot!

Sunsugar Tomatoes
These ones are sweet and small.

Pumpkin patch
This is the harvest of what the cub scouts planted.
Baby pumpkin
These are what they start out looking like. I have about 12 of the small ones and two of the above big ones! Last year, we carved the pumpkins and I roasted the pumpkin seeds! Yummy!
