October Challenge and a short absence


Rach's October Baking Challenge was something Halloweenie that is baked so here we go-
This was going to be a Green cake with a cute little orange pumpkin on top, Miss M last minute decided she wanted a blue cake with a pink pumpkin so there you go-

Pear Butter (with pears from my pear tree) I peel and cube the pears add sugar brown sugar and spices and bake on 300 for about 1-1/2 hours then blend- yummy.


Our Chili with spiders from this post-

And Miss B's MummyDogs-


I am going traveling for a couple weeks and may or may not be able to post and I may or may not be able to keep up and comment with all of your great Blogs, but I am going to try!
I hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
