I had plans, earlier this week, to do some bread baking and to retrieve my slow-cooker from the garage. You see, I do enjoy rain and that is when I love to braise, and roast, and bake bread. Instead, our Indian Summer has arrived. So I had to change direction, and I made iced tea and decided that it was too hot for me to be in the kitchen.
Pinterest. I set my timer for 15 minutes, and it took a little less than that to make the streusel and the batter. Streusel is pretty basic to make-- flour, cinnamon and butter. With my hands, I combined everything and then used a fork to make even "crumbs". Done.
...then add more streusel on top. Cook another 2-3 minutes.
I won't do a long post about our road trip, but... Craig and I drove to Bodega (Bay), one afternoon and I spotted this house. I quickly pulled over and grabbed my camera. I got so excited that I found this house!
Do any of you Alfred Hitchcock Movie Buffs recognize this house?
It's where one of the most famous scenes from "The Birds" was filmed. This is one of my favorite classic horror films.
...there's the church that was also in the movie.
... and one grave marker.
Our hot weather is supposed to stick around through next week. I have to rethink my dinner plans. Pumpkin, however, is something I enjoy year-round. I hoard pumpkin puree, by the way. (Maybe that's why there's a supposed pumpkin shortage. Ha!)
