I was looking for Orange and found some in the kitchen.
Later, I found the RED OY of Cooking.
Orange was still on my mind when I added an egg wash to my crust.
I wanted to make an orange sky topping on my
Turkey Pot Pie Delicious.
I usually prepare my own crusts and tend to press rather than roll....that sounds funny. For the innards, I combine leftover cooked turkey chopped with fresh mushrooms, celery, carrots, onion,and dry thyme. To bring it all home stir in Campbell's Mushroom Soup. Scoop into baking dish and drop on the crust. Pierce with a knife so steam can escape, unless you want to put your blackbird to function.
I had never been to an event like this. The little town was jam packed with people and lots of fancy cars with fancy paint jobs....
We headed on over to the Lotus Dealer when we were told that they were GIVING
Free food too was a big draw...too bad no free cars.
Furman worked many years at Malek Chevrolet on Broad Street the main drag through town. It was mind boggling to see the BRICK FARM MARKET open its doors in the restyled building. Can't wait until they stock the place.
They already had some cheese and honey in stock but lots of empty food cases.
We took our meal at an old standby the Hopewell Inn.
It did me good to go see, smell, and pet the critters...Even got to hold the leash to this beautiful Border Collie. Yup...his handler was heading into the Rally Course to do a walk through and she asked me if I would take the leash ...."Will he want to be with you?" I asked. She said "just pet him"...Well that was NO PROBLEM.
What a nice boy.
Walked over to see the Flat Coats because they were pretty too.
Could not leave without looking at the Westies. Turns out they were the largest group to come out for the show. 111 in all. Sooooooooooooooooooo cute.
This week really zipped buy. The weather has been cool and crisp and the sky blue. Yesterday was a great day to be outside supporting the Mercer County Wildlife Center at the Spring for Wildlife Festival, way atop Baldpate Mountain. Finally, I would get inside the house I have been snooping around and peering into the windows for the last few years. And wouldnt you know, I did not take one picture of it inside or out.
It is amazing what has been going on there. From what I learned the old Kuser estate on Baldpate Mountain is now owned by Mercer County Parks. They have added a magnificent patio to the back of what I still think might have been the original kitchens and a sort of mess hall. It looked really nice. Fresh new bathrooms are working. Still there is much to do. Of the many buildings on the property that I know of, and I dont know them all, this is the worst of the ones I've seen. Somehow beautiful in its disrepair.
I was able to grab a few good images of the eagle and owl on display with their handlers. I had taken several of these two and was not that happy with one of them...this was the best one, but their was a third peg. Do you see the pegs coming out of the wall. The third one looked like it was coming out of her mouth, so I removed it in Photoshop Elements 8 and added some hair to finish covering it up. hehehehehehe I cant believe last year I was Photoshop Phobic.
The Eagle, having fallen WITH her nest, out of a tree broke her wing and the ultimate damage to it would keep her from hunting, thus surviving. She is now in the care of the Wildlife Center. Hard to believe but she only weighs 12 pounds.
The view from the patio goes down the mountain all the way to the River.
Revere was there to show support and Marcillios too. A few places I never heard of like
TRENTON SOCIAL sounded worth investigating.
I wondered about the eagle and decided to go have another look from outside, using the window as a sort of frame. She did me the honor of looking out as I looked in. It was a rather odd sensation I felt having her look at me, from in there.
