Catching up on Monday....

 How are things with you?  Are you still keeping close to home?  Are you still taking precautions for safety?  Did you have a full weekend?

It was a busy time here!  Zoom sessions and FaceTime are great for filling time, and it’s always good to be able to see family and friends who we haven’t been able to see due to the pandemic.

I have a question for you, if you are a blogger and have comment moderation activated.  Do you know if you are receiving notice for all the comments that might be made on your post?  With comment moderation, I receive notices in my email to publish or reject, and I publish all that are appropriate.  Having this option helps keep undesirable comments from being published.  I didn’t receive email about my sister’s comment on Friday’s post.  Do you find that some of your notices aren’t registering?  I checked my settings; can’t really tell, except it seems a Google account is required to make a comment.

Now, let’s see what was cooking here over the weekend!

Pumpkin Muffins made from the recipe from Publick House in Sturbridge, MA!  Yes, it’s October and time to enjoy pumpkin!  These were a great breakfast treat, and you may see them again in this post!

Sunday’s lunch menu was Chicken and Dressing Casserole, green beans, roasted sweet potato wedges, a little cranberry sauce (made from frozen cranberries I had in the freezer), and a bit of gravy.  Oh! Dessert! Yes, there was dessert.  We’ll get to that.  First, here’s the table for lunch....

....and here’s dessert just prepared!  Cooked on top of the stove butterscotch pudding!

Just a little preparation to help presentation....

Topped with fresh whipped cream with one of those pumpkin muffins alongside....perfect for dessert!

Sending you wishes for good health and safety!  Take care!


  1. I can't say that I've noticed missed comment notices, but I do check on my dashboard from time to time, just in cases, and I have noticed some notifications take their time coming into my email. Hope this helps. I will accept payment for my help in the form of a dish of your butterscotch pudding. I haven't had that in donkey's ears! Looks so deliciously tempting.

  2. Good afternoon, Sister! Let's see if this one comes through! I love everything on that table, and wish you could email a dish of that chicken/dressing casserole to me! I have a container of pumpkin spice muffins from Wally World, and I must say they make a wonderful breakfast alongside a cup of steaming hot coffee! Now, it's my lunchtime, so I'll move along with dreams of your dishes in my brain. Have a lovely afternoon. Love you!

  3. Your muffins and butterscotch pudding look delicious.

    I don't have comment moderation selected. I used to be able to select from the dashboard any comments that landed in spam but weren't spam, but they don't seem to have that option in the new way.

  4. I too check my comments on my dashboard to moderate, Nellie. That's where I publish or delete a comment, not from my email.
    Your dinner looks great. The butterscotch pudding and pumpkin muffins top off your lovely meal.
    We are staying close to home as well and enjoy visiting our family via Skype. Not the same as a touching visit, though, but I'll take it!

  5. I only moderate comments after a few days, but when I do it is from my dashboard.

  6. Your blog looks delicious. I stay close to home, and I wear my mask when I must get groceries.
