Hope you are all doing well with the
storm which is blowing outside our windows on this Sunday night.
It has been forecast for a week now so everyone is probably prepared and many were looking forward to it.
We live here in Canada so storms are a way of life, eh!
I don't mind them once in awhile but to really enjoy it then it has to be on my conditions!
A list of rules for a lovely storm:
1. That everyone is healthy and well.
2. None of my children or grandsons are working.
3. The hydro does not even flicker.
4. A soup or stew is on the back burner.
5. A loaf of bread is rising to bake in the oven.
6. I have a lovely new book that turns my crank.
7. A few projects that I can doodle away at.
8. I can watch a show of Mountain Man or Alaska the Last Frontier.. smile
9. I don't hear any sirens.. They are worrisome..
10. I spend some time with the Master..
Yes, that about covers it.. smile...
So, this was today's bread..
Yesterday we took a city day as my husband jokingly called it and went to Fredericton.
I was attending a lovely baby shower but we went early enough for me to call in at the Thrift store. (Value Village) and purchased a bread pan. It makes a large loaf and when you turn it out it is sort of braided looking.
Threw a few seeds in there first.
I also picked up this novel for today. It is a lovely read.
We love stir fries. Do you?
We love stir fries. Do you?
A hint of ginger and fish sauce and serve it over rice.
Here are a couple of pages of my calendar that I worked on last post.
January is almost over..
Then in comes February it's promises of Spring but Winter will still be here for awhile...
|We had a ham last week so I saved the bone and made a soup today.|
Very simple but good non the less...
A little heart day project that I am working on...
A needle felted heart bunting for the mantel..
I love hearts whether it is Valentines Day or not...
Wanting to make a few more things too..
Are you crafting any hearts?
Here is a new sandwich idea for you..
Found this in one of my old written cookbooks this week.
just a good old tuna sandwich but in a different way.
Mediterranean Tuna Sandwich
2 thin slices rustic bread
1 garlic clove cut in half
1 can drained tuna
1 medium ripe tomato, seeded and diced small
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon salted capers rinsed and drained
2 Tablespoons olive oil or canola
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice sea salt and fresh ground pepper..
Toast bread and rub them with cut side of garlic clove
Arrange bread side by side on plate and mix other ingredients in a bowl.
Pile on top of bread slices.
Terry doesn't like open face sandwiches but really they are nicer that way or make a regular one. A nice change.. Well dear hearts this is about it for a stormy day!
Being on a Sunday we missed our service this morning but so lovely that we can still talk to the Saviour here at home.
With all the lazy day activities we will still take time for Him..
Terry just let Charlie out and he said the storm has changed from snow to rain.
Praying for all those on the highways and byways tonight.
Thanks so much for dropping by and
I was so happy to hear from you all last time .
You guys are just lovely!
