 When Fall brings you a big bag of local Italian purple plums, and you just happen to have read a wonderful post on a favorite food blog, there is just nothing else to do but bake this purple plum torte, following directions exactly ( a rarity for this cook). VOILA!  This beautiful deliciousness that freezes well, and is better as it ages. 
It's pretty quiet here in Ms G land right now, and that is just fine with us. We're catching up with ourselves, finishing off some quilting projects, re-organizing a very messy sewing area, assessing the excess of fabric and telling myself, said excess must be called on for future quilts before anymore fabric purchases occur!  A tall order.
Tomorrow night LM cooks one of his semi-annual fish dinners for his fishing club. Always a huge and delicious extravaganza.
Teddy and Samantha are excitedly preparing for Halloween and we are hoping for a fair eve on which they can do their fun excursions for trick or treat.
Meanwhile, Ms G, herself, is gearing up for winter, under the down comforter most everyday, and snuggling with her people whenever they agree to finally sit with a fleece coverlet.  A lot of campaigning goes in to staring her minions down until they do her bidding.
Happy Tuesday, love and peace to all!!

Love those purple plums!! My Dad planted a tree of that variety. I can't even sit in my recliner for a second and both cats are snuggled in--laying across my legs so I dare not move and disturb them. Why do we let them rule us so? What you say about your fabric stash is exactly what I say about my yarn stash--until I am in the store and see a new color or type of yarn--then all is lost. :-)

That looks so delicious. I love purple plums. I bet this dish is truly one to die for.
