I also have a video to show you that my son took in the yard either last night or early this morning. Our mama raccoon apparently has decided to bring her 5 or 6 baby coons to eat with her at the local diner... aka: our feral cats' dishes.
And the two little black kittens we took inside are all doing well. They are eating on their own and are friendly enough to go to the Adoption Center soon. They now hear my voice and come running, climb up on my lap and purr. I keep telling them that I love them and their mommy loves them, but they have an adventure to go on... and they must be brave.
On a different subject... I made a buttermilk peach pie this week with fresh peaches from Hamm's Peach Orchard. It was so-oo good. I've made buttermilk pies before... as well as peach pies, peach torte, peach cobbler, etc. But this was a recipe in the newspaper for a 'buttermilk peach pie'.
We go to Ham's Orchard in Terrill, Texas twice every summer. They open from May 15th to August 15th. Usually we hit them in May and then again in August. DH's brother and his wife always come up to Dallas for the August hit. They fill their portable cooler with fresh peach ice-cream. We love the home-made peach ice-cream also, but we pick up other stuff too like: fresh peaches, frozen home-made peach cobbler, peach salsa, and an assortment of other things made from peaches. They also carry fresh blackberries, blackberry cobbler, blueberries, strawberries, and even local pecans and veggies (onions, tomatoes, okra, etc.). Oh... and they have a special "dark chocolate fudge pie" that is delicious. When you heat it just a little the chocolate inside melts... yum!
