under the apple tree and recipe

Think of me in the evenings at 8:00PM est, I've got a special-sittin' spot behind the barn where I watch the deer that come munch on the apples. Yep, along with my own critters, that's my enetertainment.

This is what's for dinner tonight. I won't have the exact ingredients that the recipe calls for, but I'll get pretty close.

Summer Squash and Corn Chowder from the latest issue of COOKING LIGHT.

2 slices applewood-smoked bacon (I'll use Hormel bits)
3/4 cup sliced green onions, divided (I'll use Vidalia Onions)
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 pound yellow summer squash, chopped
1 pound white and yellow baby corn kernels, divided
2 1/4 cups of milk, divided (I'll use raw goats milk)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme (hmmm, I'll dig around)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
Have a great weekend, I have plans to go to bed early this evening and sleep late in the morning! yipee!

What a pretty sight...those deers under the tree.
The recipe sounds good and the picture looks good too, hmmmm.

oh how blessed you are to have that special spot. I agree with you on a early bedtime. This heat has wiped me out. Fred and Tessa had 13 babies but we have lost 4 so far because of the heat. The heat index is 112F right now and the next few days are suppose to be even worse.

I'd love to sit with you and watch the deer! And I'm anxious to try your recipe - looks and sounds really good.

And to Sandy - I didn't think anyone else knew that song! My mother used to sing it around the house....
