FUNTASTIC FRIDAY LINK PARTY 403 AND PUMPKINS

WELCOME TO FUNTASTIC FRIDAY 403--SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE!


Anyone out there Halloween decorations out yet or still in early Fall mode? My neighbor across the street has been putting out a Halloween yard decoration about once a day.  Neighbors around the corner have their Halloween inflatables up and going.  Staci has a few things out, too.  I will probably wait till next weekend, as long as I am feeling up to it.  I haven't shared anything on the blog about my health but will probably add a post soon.....

Here's fun idea for a Halloween gift or a party favor: HALLOWEEN GIFT JARS
Fun for kids (maybe not too little unless you use a plastic jar but I used Mason jars) and look pretty nice out on display.



ONTO THE PARTY!

FUNTASTIC FRIDAY LINK PARTY 402 AND FALL IS IN THE AIR


WELCOME TO THE PARTY! 
I haven't been up to too much this week and the weather has gone from the 90s and sunny to the high 60s and rainy today.  Still, I am enjoying a break in the heat and that's probably it for heat till next summer.

Thank you for stopping by--let's get to the Features from 401.

FUNTASTIC FRIDAY LINK PARTY 401 and BIRTHDAY BATH BOMBS

WELCOME TO THE PARTY! LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING ALL THE CREATIVITY THAT YOU HAVE TO SHARE.

Halloween isn't too far off--I usually put my decorations out on October 1st.  Though we have a neighbor around the corner who already has several Halloween inflatables glowing each night in their yard (to be fair, they have two adorable little ones so I can see them wanting to make their season last longer).

I have made a few things over the years and for that to happen, you have to think ahead.  I made this EASY HALLOWEEN WREATH a few years ago for my daughter-in-law.  I had everything I needed already, and you just might, too!  Inexpensive to make, even if you have to purchase a few things.


Let's get it started!!

DOLLAR TREE SUGAR SKULLS DECOR AND FLAT RATE SHIPPING


** This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Yep, school is back in session in many areas of the country, summer is winding down, and many are visualizing a break from high temperatures and sipping some pumpkin spice.  

I made a quick stop at our local Dollar Tree today and, while I wasn't looking for sugar skull solar lights or succulents, I did buy several of each lol.  


Who could resist this face?


Or this one?

If you are in the mood to get a jump on Fall holidays, try Dollar Tree for your decorations, party supplies, etc.  No Dollar Tree near you? No problem!  Here is a link and promo code word "HARVEST" for flat-rate shipping:

Here is a link to the Dollar Tree page for all things SUGAR SKULLS

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND HAPPY SHOPPING!

WHAT TO MAKE WITH ALL THOSE BACKYARD EGGS? BACK TO BASICS 101



So now you have your little backyard flock of hens and are waiting on them to produce eggs (usually at 4 to 6 months of age, depending on breed).  What are your plans for those eggs once they start coming?  Take into account how many hens you have, that they usually only lay one egg per day and there are "off days".  We have four hens and mostly get four eggs each day in the summer but there have been days, especially in this high 90-degree heat, we have only gotten one egg or two!  As long as the girls are eating and drinking well, no need to worry.  ALWAYS make sure they have access to clean, fresh water at all times.



We share some of our eggs with neighbors and friends, who are more than happy to receive them. 





Of course, we use them for our own meals as well.  Today I thought I would share a recipe with you that I received at a church meeting years ago and was a go-to for my family for years and still is.

Some call this dish "DUTCH BABIES' but my recipe came as "POPEYE PANCAKES" so that is what I will refer to it as.  Do you have another name for this recipe?  If so, share in the comments.




POPEYE PANCAKES

Six fresh eggs
One cube butter
One cup milk
One cup white all-purpose flour
Dash of salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees
Melt butter inside of 9"x 13" casserole dish

Place above ingredients (except butter) into blender pitcher.  Blend for approximately two minutes, till foamy.  Pour mixture over melted butter into casserole dish.  Optional: you can add six more thin slices of butter t/o top of mixture to give it more of a "pop" look. 

Bake in 350-degree oven for approximately 20 minutes.  Edges of pancake will appear "curled" and browned.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for five minutes and then cut into squares.  Serve warm with powdered sugar, syrup, jam, jelly or fresh berries!


Of course, you can make cookies, cakes, egg salad, quiche, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, hardboiled eggs, Eggs Benedict, eggs over easy, etc.  The possibilities are endless and as I mentioned earlier, share or even sell eggs (check with local laws and ordinances first).
