Autumn at Busy Solitude Farm

We're on the left-hand side of the street, the grain storage buildings are the farm across the street. I took this photo on a morning walk with Oskar.

And here's the tree in front of the house (as seen in 2005). Spectacular!

Before we know it, we'll be taking a Christmas photo!

Hot biscuits!

Last Sunday I had a hankering for some apple biscuits. I sauteed the Honey Crisp chunks in some butter, cinnamon and nutmeg, then spread them on the biscuit dough with some raisins, walnuts and brown sugar. Ten minutes later, hot biscuits!

(OK, I'll share the secret, I use yogurt in the biscuit dough instead of milk or buttermilk. That's how they get nice and puffy with a brown glow!)
