Cousin Paula, my girlfriend, Vicki, and I headed out on schedule in and around Wiarton doing the Garage Sale Circuit in the morning. By the time we arrived to the second one, I realized I didn't have my camera with me, thinking I had lost it somewhere. What a "sickened" feeling did I ever have, as I have become very very attached to my little FujiFilm Digital. I did manage to put my worse fears aside and continued on with the Garage Sailing at hand.
I think we must have "hit" at least 7 or 8 Garage Sales, with all three of us coming away with some pretty satisfying purchases.
"I was more "tickled pink" with this pair of Harley Davidson Motorcycle boots that had only been worn a couple of times for $5.00, opposed to $120.00 new (for that price who cares if we drive a Honda Goldwing, and I am not matched up, lol), a Laptop bag for $3.00, and the Rooster Teapot for $2.00. Oh yes, and the stand under the Teapot was 10 cents."
I must tell you, I have had everybody and their dog looking to find me a wagon for my gardening, as I am thinking I am to the point one would have a very practical use along side me in the gardens. Even used ones I have come across have had $50.00 prices on them.....
"I could not believe I absolutely stole this very nice "Model" for $5.00 ! I was beyond tickled pink, but still not as "tickled pink" as I was over the leather motorcycle boots. I am thinking Aiden & Connor will like this "model" too when they come to Grandma & Poppa's visiting."
- 6 cups sliced peeled peaches, (6-8 medium, ripe but firm; see Tip)
- 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
- 2/3 cup sugar, plus 1 teaspoon for sprinkling
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 large egg white, lightly beaten, for brushing
- Tip: Peaches that are ripe but still firm bake up perfectly tender while still holding their shape. To peel, dip peaches in boiling water for about 1 minute to loosen their skins. Let cool slightly, then remove the skins with a paring knife.
I find it strange, as usually when I put a recipe on "Cindy's Recipe Exchange", I put where I got the recipe from, however didn't this time. Wherever I did get it from I do so appreciate it, as it was sooooo "delish" !
We did get a little bit of rain yesterday after lunchtime, but by 3:30 we were able to head out on our Motorbikes for a little adventurous tour. First stop was at Renee's Restaurant & Gas Bar in Mar, a little ways up from us "Just North of the Checkerboard".
"There are certainly not too many places around anymore where you can stop for a meal, and fill up with gas at a "full service" gas bar."
Once gassed up, we headed up to and across the Red Bay Road, where we came along to the Oliphant Fen, where the four of enjoyed the walk around its boardwalk.
"A little posted history on the Oliphant Fen. A very enjoyable walk to the tune of the Bull Frogs."
"To the "trained eye", unlike my own, I am sure there were many more wonders to see other then these "Pitcher Plants" which seemed to be in abundance."
As a plant lover, I thought they were pretty cool and funky looking.
After the Oliphant Fen, we made our way back home since it was almost time for supper by that time.
"Um mm, a supper of hamburgers with the works !"
Ha,ha,ha.,...not really, this is a "Hamburger Cake" which our son, Paul, bought down at the bakery section of our downtown Foodland Store. I must tell you, I did try a little piece and it was very moist and good...lol.
"Speaking of our son, Paul, here he is on my laptop, I can assure you NOT reading his Mother's "blog", but more then likely checking out trucks on Kijiji if I know him as well as I think I do...."
"All the while I, his Mother, was in the kitchen slaving away to get one of his most favorite meals of Venison Roast and Sausage together for our "real" supper. LOL, and loving every minute of it, I was."
Supper was so good served alongside new potatoes and fresh picked sweet corn. Then fresh peach pie for desert, with the exception of Rob, of course, having his very own Key Lime pie.
Once supper was over and cleaned up with, we headed downtown to our local Tim Horton's to have a "Night Cap".
"Not too sure what Vicki was rooting around for in their back carrier, but hope she found what she was looking for..."
