I am taking a break from the household chores and having a nice hot cup of coffee to get me motivated again and I thought I would drop a note here for you qll..
I had these pics uploaded from the other day but had not got back to them so here we are..
Just a little catch up on the last few days at the farm before we came back home..
Up above is a pic of Charlie in the back seat when we went for a little drive to view Albert County at it's finest... smile..
You just have to act like you are going to go in the car and he gets right antsy and wants to tag along..
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the farm !!
The grandsons love being there and decided they should all buy it and split it 5 ways for the future... grin...
They sure fill a room when they are all there together..
So love those boys...
Yes, I am just a typical grandma... smile..
I did get a couple of batches of pumpkin done up..
A few to sell and a few for my friend Pam...
The leaves were particularly lovely this year, I think..
We had a good amount of tomatoes and so I did up several batches of a soup base that Carmen from Keepers of the Home showed us how to make...
This is a rice dish that I made and from delicious !
And here is the link for the recipe if you would like to try it..
We had a great Keepers of the Home meeting ...
It was all about breads...
Carmen made a cheese bread and a lovely eggplant spread..
And Faye made homemade tortillas...
It was all wonderful..
I did an English Muffin bread recipe...
This is a little inspiration photo I copied...
I have a cupboard a bit like it in our bedroom full of quilts but I think I need to revamp it all..
Well I guess this is all for this afternoon..
Terry went up to the farm with Dustin to get a few things so I better make haste and get supper in the oven..
I made a meatloaf and want to make a potato puff to go along with it and a Caesar Salad...
My friend gave me a recipe for Caesar dressing and I love it..
1 cup of mayo
1 T. lemon juice
1 T. balsamic vinegar (I used white wine once)
salt and pepper
Minced clove or two of fresh garlic
Parmesan cheese to suit
I also added a splash of fish sauce and a pinch of red pepper flakes..
Whisk together and store in mason jar in the fridge..
You won't be buying anymore expensive salad dressing with this recipe..
I won't name the brand but you know which one I mean.. grin..
Well, have a great week my loves and please leave me a note..
I am starting my cleaning from the back door through..
I did the closet and laundry today..
This is going to be a slow progress, I am afraid.. smile..
God love ya all..
