a good day for cooking

We made our second trip of the season to Rasa's orchard yesterday, and picked up two bushels of Fuji apples; the Galas we bought a couple of weeks ago are almost gone: my granddaughters love apples.  I picked up three butternut squash, too.  They're fifty cents each there, and in the store, they're ninety-nine cents a pound.  I also got the first really great-tasting watermelon I've had this year.

It's a cool, rainy day, and I felt like cooking a substantial meal.  So I made an apple cobbler (the kind with biscuit-type topping) and sausage corn-bread in the oven, and microwaved a squash stuffed with chopped apple, brown sugar, and a few pecans.  Cliff is a happy camper with that sort of meal.  Here's a picture of our plates, with the cobbler behind.

It's time for us to start actively searching for some pigs to raise.  Our freezer is looking pretty empty. 

Here's the recipe for the sausage-corn bread we both love; Cliff likes to top it with hot Pace Picante Sauce:

My friend Ora left a comment that made me realize I didn't quite scan all the recipe!  You put half the batter in a greased pan, 8X8 or 9X9, top with the hot meat mixture, put the other half of the batter on top of that, and bake at 375 for 30 minutes.  Then let it set for 5 minutes, cut, and serve.

Oh yum, Mosie!  That looks so good!  I am going to have to try that one!  I have been getting some pretty tasty recipes from some of you guys, and I can't wait to try them!  I just have to wait until I can gather my brood around me and do some good downhome cooking!  I may be a Cali girl, but I am still a pretty good darn cook!  :)
