I’m decorating for Fall today! I thought I’d look back through some pictures from last year for some inspiration.

First stop, the porch. A red tablecloth and a few fall items are ready for us.

This tree has started to turn early. It was damaged in the ice storm. Hope it makes it okay.

I love the pinkish red tint to these leaves - beautiful

Autumn Sedum - beautiful!

Now I’m ready! Happy Pink Saturday!

A wonderful way to make a great meal!

  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked, reserve grease
  • 3 lbs. beef, cubed
  • flour
  • 1 1/2 cups red wine
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 ribs celery, sliced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 4 to 8 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • salt and pepper

Slowly cook bacon in large skillet; remove to crockpot. Dredge beef cubes in flour, brown in bacon fat. Transfer meat from skillet to crockpot. Saute vegetables and garlic in bacon fat; remove to crockpot. Gently stir beef, vegetables, bacon and wine. Add bay leaf and salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low 7 to 9 hours.
