October’s over? ;)

October was a bit odd this year… usually by October my life is in Fall routine and I am going with the flow… but not this October…I should have known it was going to be an odd month … when my daughter started wearing her pillow on her head =)

274/365

Here is my Odd Month at a semi-QUICK glance… 365 photo style…

yep I know… quick is very unlike me … if I succeed! =)

275/365

Sammy and I did some baking together

(that isn’t too weird for us)

276/365

Gluten Free banana bread

(I will type this recipe out for y’all one day!)

A good gluten free version.. not too gritty.. just moist enough… =)

277/365

isn’t this steamy picture kinda dreamy? =)

278/365

home made cranberry sauce for Canadian Thanksgiving on Oct 10th

Easy sneezy:  1 cup Apple Cider, 1 tbsp Vanilla, 1 Cup Sugar, 1 bag o berries… boil… reduce heat and simmer your steamy pot til the berries break down to your liking… puree a bit for thicker sauce… sweeten it more or less… Tasty!  eat on turkey…eat on bagels… eat on cheesecake… eat by itself!!  YUM!

(this doesn’t count as talking I was sharing a recipe!~!)  =)

Click on the tasty kitchen ~ search ~ as titled above.  =)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes = a little bit of bliss!

381/365

you didn’t think I wouldn’t tell you HOW did you?

1 egg, 1/3 cup Apple Cider, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon,  1/4 cup pumpkin… whisk… add gluten free bisquick (about 1/3 cup give or take) til it is kinda thick but still pours… I find GF pancakes hard to flip… thicker SMALLER pancakes flip easier for me in my Cast Iron pan… with a little extra oil… this amount serves two happy kids or one happy grown up!

282/365

Note … smaller pancakes… =)  can’t you just smell em cookin?

I am obsessed with pancakes right now… Cider, pumpkin, gingerbread…

SO AMAZING!  all my own creations!  =)  I should write a pancake cookbook!

Check out these funky fall clouds in the sky

we have had some weird clouds/skies this Fall!

I have a few funky Nov. sky pics too!

speaking of skies…

290/365

at  the last home game of the Sounders

in the ‘regular season’

291/365

my little soccer players’ team went as a group…$10 tickets!!

the soccer girls and all their families… all 60 of us… fun time!!

(the soccer families don’t know I have a blog yet… no group pics… I don’t post pics of folks w/out permission!)  =)

292/365

last 10 minutes are always the most exciting!

The Sounders scored in the last 3 minutes & won…

sending them into the playoffs… (I think)   =)

*just like my little girls soccer team**   (odd)

293/365

This little brother is SO OVER Soccer!

he’s been attending sisters soccer games for 9 months straight…

(well 5 years + 9 months each year …what a trooper!!)

Abby plays in a Rec league…  but this year was a bit ODD…

Her team were undefeated in the regular season!!

so they had a special play off  b/c there were two groups in the local league this year…odd… they took the 2nd place title in that tournament… their first loss in the season! =)

AND

Abby’s team played in a tournament … 4 games later they took

The District Championship!!

which means we go on to play Regionals and maybe State??

(its going to be a LONG FALL… soccer’s going to be 10-11 months this year)

One loss the whole season … with the two extra tournaments!!

**what a great season**  SO MUCH SOCCER and we are not done yet…

Better stock up on more of this

294/365

AKA a pesky little mail man barker

299/365

pesky little bugger sitting right in front of Mr. Super Sniffer

whilst he sniffs out the nearest cat, squirrel, deer, raccoon to chase/bark at…

300/365

and he made my blurry girl a happy girl that day!

puppy sitting is fun b/c you get to send him home at the end of the day!

301/365

303/365

For Halloween this year we had a “Halloween Hide-In”… odd I know.
