It has been just a beautiful fall here in Oregon! The days have been warm and sunny and windy!
After days of strong east winds, the trees are getting a little more sparse. Oh, but there are lots of leaves left to fall!
The wind piles the leaves up against Jim's cottage...they are piling up.!
I decided to do a bit of baking to enjoy a bit of tea today. Something for me and something for Jimmy.
I've been experimenting with almond flour. The tea bread is a pumpkin spice almond flour bread.
It's very moist and has a lot of flavor. It only has 2-3 T of honey, no sugar. I had a 1/2 can of pumpkin, so made Jim some soft drop pumpkin cookies with an old fashion butter cream frosting. YUMMY.
I have had these pumpkin mugs for over 40 years. I got them at the Oregon State fair when we were first married. I have used them every year.
My friend LaVonne gifted me with this darling acorn teapot. I brewed a chai tea by Stash-mild and delightful.
Our weatherman says we will have about 5 more days of this lovely weather.
