Sarah's Diner Folk Art Print & Apple Dumplins & Sir Charles King of the Toads

Everyone meets at Sarah's Diner on Sunday evening after church. Meals are served home style in huge bowls in the center of the table. Platters are piled high with their famous fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, etc., Dessert is a choice of warm apple pie or gooey cinnamon rolls. When tummies are full and the little ones start to doze, it's time for families to head home, walking in the cool evening air.
This time of year Sarah also offers her favorite dessert,
Apple Dumplins. Sarah got this from one of my favorite blogs and you can get this wonderful recipe here!
I think I forgot to share this little guy who thinks he reigns supreme over the garden, Sir Charles the "King of the Toads." I put him here to keep a watch out for the squirrels who keep digging up my potted plants looking for nuts. He's not been proven to be very reliable though.
