WEEKEND POST 43

Wild grapes_HGN

The wild grapes in our backyard have begun their transition from gold to purple-y black, and are a pretty addition to the seasonal tapestry. Not tasty, however. Not. at all. tasty.

Don’t forget to catch the ‘supermoon’ lunar eclipse tonight (or links below). Use this quick GIF to help you schedule this rare event into your evening. It’s been a dreary, rainy weekend here, so we shall see if the eastern skies clear in time for us to get a glimpse. Hopefully your view is unobstructed.

Enjoy the week ahead!

Cheers, Heather

Some interesting, fun, delicious reads:

  • September is National Cholesterol Education Month. DYK that a build-up of cholesterol and other deposits can block arteries and lead to coronary artery disease (CAD) – the most common type of heart disease in the United States? Knowing how to maintain healthy cholesterol levels is essential to your health — learn more from the CDC.
  • New research shows that resveratrol, a polyphenol found in chocolate, grapes and wine, may have benefit for slowing the brain’s decline into Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Ahoy! Lively up your conversation game with 34 new (old) interjections.
  • Autumn feels like crockpot season to me, not sure why. Meatless ideas for this hands-off kitchen workhorse.
  • I know without a doubt, though, that it’s football season. Wisconsin-inspired slow-cooked cider brats with apple-onion relish will be amazing for cheering on the Packers.
  • And to continue the related bullets, I highly recommend you check out my new blog crush: The View From Great Island. Four suppers in the past week and a half were inspired by Sue’s creations!
  • This week’s pinned words of wisdom.

      Oh I bet that setting provided a fantastic backdrop for the supermoon eclipse! Glad the clouds parted for you, as they fortunately did here as well. And yes, you MUST try the brats. We made the recipe (serving with braised greens instead of the bun), and give it four enthusiastic thumbs up!
