I'd be happier if the warmth stuck around here till mid November. Maybe in 200 years it might.

That sounds better than the end result I imagined.

unless it is a high sugar fruit most of the wine recipes I've found are all making the alcohol from the added sugar and unless it is fruit often do not taste like the 'base' ingredient. It will be some time before I know that to be a fact or not.

I'm not a big wine drinker so I am just playing. Should I find something I like, I might get serious about it. For now it is small batches of 1/2 or 1 gallon each.

I could enjoy a normal Fall warmth if we got some rain.

Just discovered cannolies are only 120 cals each. Got 8 from Longos for the fam desert tonight after a somewhat healthy meal courtesy of Jamie Oliver. Love his "5-ingredient" meals. Easy to make and relatively healthy.

So what meal did you have?

I'm tired of waiting for Fall so I broke down and made a pot chili for Sunday dinner. We live in style around here.

The official title: Hot-Smoked Salmon Pasta: Jamie Oliver 5 Ingredients

It's supposed to be "taglierini, or angel-hair pasta, but I couldn't find it in the one grocery store I was at. So, I used another thin pasta I found instead.

The pasta meal includes cooked salmon and asparagus all mixed in one pan with the cooked pasta. The other three ingredients include a little "crème fraiche" (I couldn't find that, so I used yogurt, which sounds weird, but it works), and lemon, squeezed at table if desired. My personal add, was a little parmesan sprinkled at the table

Our gang likes pasta, and for the most part, likes salmon, so it was a fairly easy meal, to an extent - on the healthy side, and although two cooks in the kitchen make it easier, it can be done by one.

Next one to try: Sausage & apple bake - another "5 ingredient meal"

Chilli's good - I want to try that for a Sunday meal one day. Happy Sunday to you.

How many eat at your table?

I ask because I have a simple country meal that we make in 2 sizes that you might like. It was my wife's grandmothers recipe.

Sometimes 3, but usually 4 mouths at the table.

Curious - what kind of recipe?

Thin spaghetti with colby (better) or cheddar cheese, oven baked.
1 8 ounce block of cheese
12 ounces of uncooked thin spaghetti

Real easy cook 3/4 of of 1 lb box of thin spaghetti to your taste (10 minutes for us)
Layer it with the sliced (best) or shredded cheese in an 8x8 baking dish.
2 layers of cheese plus the remainder as the top layer.
Add about 1.5 - 2 ounces of milk and about 3 TBS of butter distributed across the top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 until the cheese is well melted.

I like to add mild Salsa or tomatoes and green chilis at the table. Tomato ketchup is also good. The wife eats it plain.

We often do it as meal.

A good meat go with is fried sliced, mild smoked sausage.

Mmmmm. Sounds great! Unfortunately, the boss doesn't like cheese that much, so I think we could be voted out on this one. However, if I make the boss something different for her meal, and then I can try this recipe for the boys and myself - it might work.

It isn't like mac and cheese at all, different tastes.

90 degree yesterday and we greatly enjoyed the chili for dinner.

Even if it were like mac and cheese, I'd like it.

Just banned two members at another forum - fluff posting and spam. The fluff poster already received two recent infraction warnings for C&P. SMH.

Finally a green day on the markets - so far, that is.

Doesn't seem like there are many intelligent conversations going around on forums these days. Except for this high-level thread conversation, that is.

I'm a little tired. Standing on your head trying to clean out 70 gallon tank where the top of it is below you feet kinda wears a fella out. If curious, it is the bio filter for the fish pond.

I was in the green earlier haven't checked for a few hours.

If you know anything about animated ads a mentor could use your help in another thread.

S&P is still green - not by much, but better than red.

I had a look at that thread re "animated ads", and unfortunately, I am so far removed from that end of promotional elements, I would not be of any help - sorry.

If it was about weeds, watering, trimming soft-scapes, putting plants to bed for the winter etc, (something along those lines), I'd probably be of more help.

As I said there I also know nothing.

Went back out and finished cleaning the bio filter at dusk.

We are going to move the fish into it while we clean the pond; a project that has not been done for about 20 years. I guess I am going to dry the muck and send to the recycle center for yard waste where it will make some rich compost.

We have one hot day left on the calendar today. 85F, plus humidity to make it feel like 96.

Tomorrow? 59F and rain. Talk about a weather rollercoaster. Shorts and t-shirt today - long pants and hoodies tomorrow.

You think I'd be used to this sort of thing.

Add: Went for a walk this morning - luckily in the forest, there's lots of trees and shade. No bugs this time of year too! Whew its' hot.

But, I'd still have this over Calgary's 3 feet of snow ANY DAY!

You made me go look at our weather guesses.

3 More nasty days and then moderating to high 70s which is much closer to normal.

Watched the news last night. Our official weather station is the airport. There was ZERO measurable rainfall in the month of Sept. Three days had trace amounts. First time since the start of data collection in 1872 that has happened.

This fat boy think 60 degrees with no wind or rain is short and tee weather if you are moving.

From where you are approximately situated, I would guess that "no rain" for the month, is an anomaly. Any reasoning by the experts as to why it was so dry? Thinking back, you were mentioning a lot of rain over the summer where you are - is that normal?

If the sun is out, at 60F, and little to no wind, it's either t-shirt and pants, or warmer top and shorts. Both t-shirt and shorts at 60F, might be pushing it.

We Canadians get a bad rap about vacationing in Florida in the winter, walking around with t's and shorts when the native Floridians are wearing winter coats and hats.

This year was nowhere as wet as last year which was way above normal. The Spring started the same but it returned to normal or less by late June. Did not here any why.

Year round Floridians have water running through their veins.

Just found out, today was the warmest October 1st on record. Tomorrow....well...., not so warm.

I'll be in AZ for the month this coming February, then spend a week in Las Vegas in March before heading home. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's warm. I know it won't be "hot", but I'm hoping it'll be at least warm.

If not warm enough, I'll try south Florida in 2021.
