I think we need a little fluff :)

1. Have you/Will you decorate(d) for the fall?

2. Have you started any Holiday shopping yet?

3. What is one food (or drink) that you look forward to when the weather gets cooler?

Bonus (it was a discussion at work yesterday and wondered others opinions):
4. If you were able to have an inheritance for your children (or maybe you have already experienced this with your own family), and you were able to live comfortably and was not relying on that money to survive, would you rather spend the money while you are alive and watch your children enjoy the money now or would you rather have it given to them when you died?

How odd. I tried the link in my post and it came up recipes just like when I goggled it. If I don't add the word recipes, goggle will come up with percussion instruments. The food is called timbales because they look like the instrument. From that google page, here's some pictures of food timbales. http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=ahH&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&q=timbale+recipes&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=RxyRTNmqGpKosQONmtixDg&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=4&ved=0CDAQsAQwAw&biw=1280&bih=534

Here's my recipe that dh is taking to work:

1 6 ounce can of tuna, salmon, chicken
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup monteray jack cheese, shredded
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk

Mix everything together. Spoon into greased muffin pans. Cook at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Makes 6 large muffins.

Not all timbales use rice but they all have eggs in them.

1. Have you/Will you decorate(d) for the fall?



aside from a harvest flag hanging out front, we save most "Fall" decorating for closer to Halloween time, pumpkins become jack-o-lanterns, lights in my window,

1. Have you/Will you decorate(d) for the fall?

**I don't decorate for fall unless you count buying some mums for outside. Actually, I have several mums that came back this year so I don't have to buy as many! It's too early to get them yet.

2. Have you started any Holiday shopping yet?

**Not really. I have a few things I bought spontaneously and put away as Christmas gifts. I've been keeping track of things the kids have asked me to buy for them and mentioning that maybe they can get it for Christmas.

3. What is one food (or drink) that you look forward to when the weather gets cooler?

**Anything with pumpkin, hot chai tea, comfort foods like soups/stews, meat and potatoes, etc.

4. If you were able to have an inheritance for your children (or maybe you have already experienced this with your own family), and you were able to live comfortably and was not relying on that money to survive, would you rather spend the money while you are alive and watch your children enjoy the money now or would you rather have it given to them when you died?

**I'm sure I'd probably spend some of it on my kids/grandkids while I were still alive, esp if there was something special they wanted to do that was out of their budget (like a school trip abroad). I'd probably heavily invest in my grandkids' college funds to relieve some of that burden from my kids, and then the rest I'd leave for them when I die.

Red potatoes, skin on and with a masher so there are chunks.

Other potatoes, skin off and with a ricer so there are no chunks.

You're welcome. Most of my timbale recipes come from old cookbooks or cookbooks with old recipes. According to one cookbook, timbales were popular in the first half of the last century but fell out of fashion some time by the 50s-60. They were made with a custard foundation and were a way of using up left over meat and fish before electric refrigeration. And usually served for brunch, a tea, or lunch.

And your dh takes them for lunch all the time, and you make variations of them? Does he just really like them or are the super convenient? I'm just curious.

The recipe I posted is so far his favorite and has been the one that I make the most. Every now and then, I'll try out a new recipe on him. If he likes it, it goes into the 3-ring notebook. He likes the tune ones the best and eats 1-2 cold for his dinner break with either raw veggies or a salad. I make them about once a month or 6 weeks to change up his dinners.

Why ever? You never know how life will turn out. Many people do know.

DH would love those! Do they freeze well? I'm thinking I could make a big batch for DH to take on nights he doesn't have time to come home for dinner.
