Roadrunner Encounter!

Well Good Morning out there in Blog land and another fine day it is. The temps are getting chilly and the leaves are all falling, tis the season to start your baking and canning. After a day in Pahrump I am home today to rest up some before taking hubby to Vegas tomorrow to the doctor and have a nice supper some where. As I was checking out Sues Blog she posted about Mini pies in a canning jar. I saw that and thought that was the cutes thing around. I have tons of them kind of jars I got at a thrift store awhile back. So I am going to try to make these cute jar pies, I was never any good about making a good pie crust, so if anyone out there has any tips on making a good one, please pass them to me. There muct be a trick I am missing. I hope your enjoying the Fall season as much as I am. I can tell the weather is cooling down because boy the roadrunners are sure out and about, I saw 2 coming home yesterday from Pahrump. They are such a pretty bird. Enjoy your day.

I'm so proud of you for trying your hand at those cute little pie jars. I'll let you in on a little secret, just for beginners, buy the jiffy pie crust mix, it's easy and very good. But when you add the water, use ICE water, that's the trick I've found to a good pie crust. I love your fall look here but can't see Alpicks treasures, maybe if you change it to white or black? Rest up and let me know how Mark does tomorrow! Safe travels! Love ya!

What a nice picture of a roadrunner. I don't believe I've ever seen one, myself.

So nice of you to visit my blog, you are welcome at any time.☺

You got a great picture of him, Allison! There is one I see a lot back on a mountain road and he likes to run along the road in front of the truck. It's hard to get away from him!

Hope everything is well at the doctors!
