Fall Foliage and Jacarandas. Bowling.

Denise at Yes Virginia There is Life After Retirement posted fall colours from her garden so I thought I would take a few pix of the park outside our window.






 At least we don't have to rake up the leaves.

Then there is this fabulous picture from Australia showing Jacaranda Trees.



It was Monday again, and I bowled an average game. Better than below average I guess. Thursday is our Travel League.

Here's something I have  never heard of before, from Kraft Kitchens. Yes I know, noodles again.

Shrimp Stroganoff

Serves 10

If you like stroganoff and shrimp, this entrée has your name written all over it. It's packed with noodles, broccoli and shrimp—not to mention flavor!

3 cups egg noodles, uncooked
4 cups small broccoli florettes
1 lb Velveeta cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of shrimp soup
1 cup Sour Cream
1 lb uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

Cook noodles in large saucepan as directed on package, omitting salt and adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 5 min. Meanwhile, cook VELVEETA, soup and sour cream in separate saucepan on low heat 8 min. or until VELVEETA is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta mixture; place in 13x9-inch baking dish. Top with shrimp. Pour VELVEETA sauce over pasta mixture; cover.

Bake 25 min. or until heated through; stir.


Have a great day

  1. When I purchased this lot for my house, there were plans for the 5-acre park behind me. Now 40+ years later, all the ash trees are gone and I have a fence to keep out deer which messes up my view of the open space. You have a lovely view from your apartment and I envy that. Thanks for the mention.

    1. Pity about that Denise. I know what trouble you have with animals. We think we are lucky with "our backyard" too.

  4. I miss shrimp. I love it and I've almost eaten some but I get such a rash. :( Those jacaranda trees are amazing. Wish they grew around here. The leaves are that shade of purple or are those the blossoms?

    1. Although I don't write Yolanda, I do know what you mean. I meant to take these pix earlier whilst there were more leaves still on the trees.
