Another Busy Week, Nectarine Pecan Cobbler Bread



Another Busy Week-
After a killer weekend last weekend canning and freezing nectarines, I was ready to crash. My back was killing me so I went to my miracle chiro/acupuncturist, Thursday, what a relief! All better. I had really thrown out my sacrum, oh joy. This weekend I'm relaxing more. Dave spread the compost today, I watered the garden and backyard, baked, and let the girls out. They do a great job digging it into the garden soil. Down to 3 hens since Ellie passed last week. Next spring I'll probably get 2 more chicks for 5 total. They're not quite laying but healthy and busy!

It's a bit cooler and not having to water quite so much. We had TERRIBLE smoky skies Wed./Thurs. blown in from S. Oregon/N. Cali. Just awful. Finally blew thru on Friday, blue skies again!!! About 82 today and clear, very nice. Putting out some fall decor tomorrow, what fun!

I sold 2 items on eBay with 3 more pending, if you're interested, they're women's warm winter goodies! L.L..Bean Women's Fleece Pullover   Eddie Bauer Women's Jacket   Women's LL Bean Parka

We bought a new mattress set today, what a process. We couldn't afford a Tempuredic but found another good foam bed, should help us sleep better. We had to do a lot of research but got a good deal. We both wake each other up with some leg movement, so this should calm that down, and ours was pretty saggy. It has a long warranty and should last. Bye, bye saggy bed next Saturday...

Back to work, things are much calmer. Thank god.

compost, what's that?

Nectarine Pecan Cobbler Bread-
I had just a bit of nectarines left, so I searched for some recipes. I found this- Peach Pecan Cobbler Bread  Yummy! I love the chopped pecans and brown sugar on top. Wonderful and moist, and I had enough for 2 loaves, 1 to freeze...

Nancy, I have to say your canned nectarines are fantastic. What a treat this winter. The bread looks really yummy, and here I am before breakfast really wishing for a bite! And I'm so sorry about Ellie. It's always a heartbreak to lose an animal. On a small urban homestead with few animals, the bond is all the stronger, I'm sure.

Glad you back is feeling better. That bread looks yummy. I hope we get plums on our tree next year. I would love to get some home grown fruit canned. This year I'll need to buy apples again. Not sure if I'll buy peaches, as it may be too late for us now. I've just had so many other foods to put up here this year.

Thanks! I may buy some apples as I miss canned chunky applesauce...
