Yummy Monkey butter

The name of this butter is odd, but it is delicious. Just listen as I taste it.

Someone uses a great sense of humor in naming these products.

I hope you stop by Wagners in Black Creek and select something for yourself.

BTW, the Monkey Butter cost me $5.25 for 19 oz.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Dogs do the darndest things

Stella likes to dig. I’m glad she wasn’t really digging this time.

I guess she wanted to save her chew for another day. Hiding was cute this time. I sure hope she doesn’t really try to dig a hole into the couch.

We are working daily at learning how to live with each other. Some days are better than others. This time she was just cute.

Remembering our 1973 engagement

We were in Bob’s Impala that day. It was his first car. Up until he bought that car, he used the farm truck. Neither of us knew that it would turn into a special day for us. I can’t believe it is 49 years since he proposed. Listen to my account of Bob’s proposal.

August 8, 1973, was the day Bob finally asked the big question.

It’s a good memory, but a little tough, too.

I sure do miss my soulmate. Love you forever, Bob.

(The photo was taken at a friend’s 1973 wedding.)

Tasting red pepper jelly

Last Thursday I bought another assortment of jellies at Wagner’s in Black Creek, Wisconsin. Even though hot peppers aren’t my usual selection, I thought I’d give this red pepper jelly a try. Here’s my first taste.

There isn’t any fruit in this jelly. The ingredients are sugar, water, jalapeno, vinegar, pectin, red and yellow food color, and citric acid.

The first thing I tasted was the sweetness and second came the red pepper. It tasted good, but was a bit more pepper than I’m used to. I’m sure anyone who likes jalapeno peppers would love this on their toast.

Triplet pear tomatoes

I don’t have much of a garden, but I do have some things to show you today.

The best tasting fruits and veggies don’t have to be perfect to adorn your dinner table. My odd-shaped tomatoes didn’t even make it to the table. I ate them as soon as I finished this video.

Later, I’ll use the rest of the tomatoes in a taco salad. M-m good.

These tomatoes were grown in a large pot. This shows that even in a small space you can grow a garden you can be proud of.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
