We did Martha's pumpkin pancakes again, gluten free, which simply means I divide the total cups of flour it calls for by 3 and use a third each of buckwheat, rice, and potato starch.

We ate on some of these vintage Corelle plates. I'm newly converted to Corelle and Fiestaware since discovering so many dishes are still made with lead and cadmium in them. My pretty blue and white ones had it and so out they went. The kids love finding Corelle for me at the thrift store. Last week we found a few of these vintage Corelles and a few cute-as-a-button vintage Corelle strawberry mugs for .49 each.

And the colors in my broom which make what could be considered as drudgery, not so. The best broom corn broom ever. I'm a convert to broom corn brooms also.
