Baking with plums is a part of fall that I always look forward to.

A new necklaces or two isn't so bad either.

Back to the plums. When I first noticed the Italian Prunes in the grocery my mind started racing! Think of  all the wonderful things that you can do with plums. Stewed plums and Greek yogurt, plum pie, plum kuchen. The latter won. And Charlie was very pleased when I walked thru the door with 3 pounds of plums.
So pleased in fact that he tried to steal one. Anyway, here is the making of the Plum Kuchen.

Charlie was a little upset. He didn't manage to steal a plum. :( Poor little buddy.


I went to visit my Aunt awhile back and I came home with these. Silver spoons. My Grandma used to collect spoons and I have become lucky enough to take over the entire collection (much to the chagrin of my boyfriend). Oh well. I kind of like them.
