I thought I would give you all a break from festival pictures today. Underneath these two trees sits my “green swing” which as you know I dearly love.
This is a picture of a late blooming hollyhock. See how tall it is. Our house is a two story house and if you look in the upper left corner of the picture you can see the edge of the roof on the house. Just look at how blue the sky is today. God is so good!

Today I am trying a new recipe. Well, not completely new, I have made it once before. The other time I made it in the oven. Today, I am making it in the crockpot. The recipe is called Honey Baked Lentils and Rice.
1 cup lentils, 1 cup brown rice, 4 1/2 cups water, 2 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp minced onion, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/4 tsp each). Place in crockpot, cook on low for about 4 hrs or until lentils are done. You can also cook this in the oven in a casserole dish for 1 1/2 hrs at 350 degrees.
School today as usual. It is an absolutely beautiful day here in Floyd. I am doing another batch of apples in the steam juicer and will be making applesauce later on today. I also want to go up on the hill and gather some mullein leaves to dry for making tea. This tea is very good hot or cold and it is very good for respiratory ailments. I usually just pick it in the summer and make a cold tea from it. I have never tried drying it before.
Our supper tonight will be bbq made from the remainder of the roast I coooked yesterday. Homemade buns, home fries and the honey baked lentils. I think we will have peaches for dessert. Enjoy your day and God bless.
