A few days off...

I will be taking a few days off from blogging because of a finger injury that makes it hard for me to cook, do dishes, etc. So no blogging for me!

When I return, though, I promise a recipe that uses the tasty hickory nuts in our yard -- a wild rice-hickory nut salad -- and a pumpkin pie using fresh pumpkin, as well as a special creamed spinach recipe (an easy one!) just in time for Thanksgiving.

By the way, in case you've never tried hickory nuts, they taste like a cross between walnuts and pecans, and are a little sweet. I'd never heard of them before this year, and I can't wait to try the recipe out.

I had heard of hickory nuts, but didn't realize you could eat them until this year. Did you hurt your finger from shelling them? :-P

How did you hurt you finger?

Actually, I have two cuts that are just in the worst place on two fingers, and between washing dishes, changing diapers, and the like, I was in so much pain. Now they're better. I will be posting a recipe later today of Dan's awesome Indian rice that he made last night!
