Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween everyone! It is going to be a wonderful day in Shasta County a warmer Halloween if you will. I have not yet decided if I will dress up yet, but I have my Catwoman costume handy, and there will be trick or treating in the neighborhood. The picture below was taken I think two years ago. I found it in my folders the other day and had to post it.

Lily the Dog looking for Fuji Apples Under the Apple Tree, Trinity County

Lily loves fruit and vegetables. Her favorites are tomatoes, pears, and apples, probably because they are abundant in the fall for her to scavenge. Here she is when I was picking Fuji apples last week. Although, I believe, she likes the pears more, she tends to be under that tree more often. Apparently the bear cub likes the pears too. There has been two sightings of the bear cub already under the pear tree.

October and Fall Colors in Trinity County

I took these photographs over the weekend during a short walk. The trees are so beautiful during the fall season, all the different colors. The leaves are falling rapidly and the nights are growing colder.

I cut my walks short though because I was a bit concerned with a bear being around. There is so much bear scat, and I have never hardly seen any before. I went for a walk but was too nervous because at the riverside there was more, and it was not there the day before.

Pomegranate, A Delicious and Nutritious Fruit

A pomegranate fruit was one of my favorites as a child and still is. It is so delicious, worth the effort it takes to peel.I f you put one in a bowl or sink of water, it is less messy and also easier to peel. You can thank my aunt for that piece of advice. She uses them in a particular salad that she serves. I like to eat them alone.

Recently I read something about the pomegranate seeds being very good for you. They have large quantities of antioxidants also. I found this site which I found to be very well made. If you have never had a pomegranate, this would be a very helpful site.

Puff Pastry with Fresh Apples from Trinity County

I love these apples they are so delicious. They look like pink lady apples and are sweet like them also.

I have been making these apple puff pastries. I have not quite perfected the size and shape. I bought the frozen puff pastry, for now. I peel and slice the apples very thin.

Sundial Bridge, Sacramento River, Shasta County

This bridge is fantastic! I think that it was one of the greatest structures to be built in California. I have visited it numerous time and it is just wonderful to visit. My grandpa will argue with you till the sun comes up about what a waste of money it was. If you want to get him riled up just mention the Sundial Bridge. :-)
"Spanish architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava conceived the Sundial Bridge’s unusual design, his first free-standing bridge in the United States."
