102 Chats- not dalmations

Everyday Ruralty
Greetings! I'm glad you joined us on the porch today. Sorry I got this up a bit late this morning. I am spending WAY TOO MUCH time in the kitchen. I'm canning, freezing, and dehydrating everything in sight. By the way, has anyone seen the cat?
  1. Have you cooked any interesting dishes lately?
  2. What question would you like to ask Wendell?
  3. Have you had any thoughts of Christmas yet?
  4. Do you make jams and jellies?
  5. Do you have any board games that you enjoy?
My answers:
  1. I made a crisp with zucchini (simmered in lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar) that tasted very much like apples. I just posted the recipe for you this morning.
  2. Do you ever stop eating? There are days I could ask you that, Patrice!
  3. I saw a blog a few weeks ago that reminded us that it's six months away. It dawned on me that it would be easier on the purse strings if I started getting things slowly now. It usually is too much spending for December. With that said, I haven't started yet.
  4. Yes! Lots!
  5. I like Scrabble,and Monopoly. I never win Monopoly, so I'm not sure why I like it so much. Perhaps it's the eternal optimist in me.:)
Have a wonderful Wendell kind of week!


  1. I agree that starting early with the Christmas shopping is a great idea--but I haven't started either!

  2. I like to play Monopoly, too, but David doesn't seem to particularly enjoy it and it is no fun to play it alone. We generally just play cards.

    Your zucchini crisp sounds like it might be pretty good. :)

    Have a great week!

  3. I now have to go home tonight and make a zucchini crisp!

  4. That same thought occurs to me year after year about Christmas. And yet, I never get started early. Never. I haven't stopped eating all summer. Sigh.

  5. I have made zucchini crisp before, it's really good! :)

  6. my grandma Ruby was great at playing Scrabble ... she was an English teacher, me - not so good. i will play but i'm not one to come up with long huge word. unless i cheat. ha. ha!! ( :

    i have to ask what kind of week is a "Wendell week"??! so curious. big big hugs.

  7. I think Christmas is a bad word in July :)

  8. I think there's a spam link in the linky list of our blog posts... I hate when people do that! Blogging with Cindy link!

  9. Hello Patrice, sorry I haven't been by for awhile. Hope you don't find that cat under your feet, would hate you to trip with all that activity going on in the kitchen.

  10. I don't like Monopoly. I love Clue.

  11. Oh my goodness. I discovered your cute little site about two weeks ago and I'm hooked. I just so happen to be a proud farm girl/chicken lover/horse owner/blogger and more. Plus I dream of either marrying a rancher or a farmer, Lord willing, just because that's what I love and how I've always lived..I'm the owner of Modesty Is My Policy up there, a southern/vintage fashion/farming/living blog and I've been taking part in your chats for two weeks now. I love it!
    Yay for another farm girl. ;) With a horse. :D My horse is a wonder horse, as well, but don't tell him..his head is already big enough.

  12. I just made Blackberry Jam yesterday :)

  13. I forgot about Scrabble! Mom is the only one that ever liked to play it and we would play for hours on end. I remember in the summer we would go outside and take glasses of lemonade and play at the picnic table for hours on end.

  14. Hi, Ms. Patrice!!! Sounds like your very busy this summer. I've got great news to share as soon as I can find the time....yet another GRANDbaby!!!

  15. Monopoly was a favorite from childhood. I've played it a few times as an adult, but the fun-ness of the game has been lost for me. :(

    Thanks for hosting another farmhouse chat!

  16. You sound busy. I bet you find the cat in the coolest place in the house.

  17. I am enjoying making dishes with my homegrown tomatoes. They did well this year. Mix spinach, rice, walnuts, Parmesan cheeese,olive oil and garlic. Stuff large tomatoes. But this time of year the tomatoes have gotten smaller so I just chopped them up. It was more like a salad. I haven't made any jams or jellies this year. I love Up Words, Monopoly and Risk.

  18. I've seen the so many days until Christmas signs and posted on a forum about our yearly homemade ornament swap. I need to start making stuff. I don't mind Monopoly as much as some of the other games.
