Good Evening everyone..
How are you all doing?
We are having glorious weather here in St. Martins by the Bay of Fundy.. smile..
Our oldest son and family are on vacation in Ontario and I guess the weather is very hot and humid..
Then our youngest son dropped down to see us today and the first thing he said was how cool it was here.. He said it was really hot up home..
I am glad to be here where we put the heat up this morning while we had our breakfast and then I wore a sweater over to work at the shop.. It did turn out sunny and warm but just right..
A lovely blessing...
Anyway, I still do not have the shop ready..Yikes...
Dustin came down so I decided to spend some time with him and of course I needed to feed him.. smile..
He really enjoyed it and had two plates..
Bless his heart..
Nice for him to have a home cooked meal..
You know what most bachelors eat.. grin...
I was tired, though so it was a really simple meal..
This pantry is not really stocked for the summer yet..
Perhaps you would like this recipe..
It is just one that I make without measuring but there is no way you can mess it up...
I don't think so anyway... smile..
Pasta with Broccoli and Lemon..
Put some water on to boil to cook as much pasta (I used spaghetti)
Make sure you put lots of salt in the water and cook as much as you think you need...
Then while that is cooking slice up several large mushrooms and a couple of cups of broccoli or so..
Make sure the broccoli does not have long stems on them..
When you have them ready just add them to your spaghetti that is cooking..
It takes about 5 minutes or so to cook the mushrooms and broccoli..
Then shave off as much Parmesan as you like and get a lemon ready to squeeze..
Drain your pasta and veggies and add a large tablespoon of butter and your cheese..
Stir well along with your squeezed lemon...
You could just use lemon juice but I prefer fresh ones..
You could add a speck of cream, too, if you like...
Add a bit of freshly ground pepper and sea salt ...
We love this although I try not to make it very often..
Terry and I both like it too much.. smile..
Hope you try it and enjoy it...
Just thought I would share a pic of my everyday dishes here at the cottage...
You guys know me and my dish fetish..
Brown transfer ware...
I like all different patterns..
What is your favorite transfer ware color?
Well... my dears... it has been a very long day and these old bones are tired..
I say that a lot lately, don't I?
I doubt if I get open tomorrow but Friday for sure..
I am sorry I did not get to answer all the questions last time...
As soon as I know my hours I will post them up top of my blog and my phone number... OK?
Our son just phoned to say he got back home..
He told me he wouldn't call.. grin..
He thinks I worry too much and he tries not to encourage my dependence on knowing where and how he is.. smile..
Us mothers are mostly all the same, though, eh?
So blessed to have such dear kids...
Thank you, Lord..
Good night sweeties...
