Hello everyone ..
Just wanted to let you know that the winner of the little owl was picked by Mr. Henry..
And it was Julie
from OUR LITTLE RED SALTBOX BLOG..
Julie is a dear girl who just recently started her blog and she and Janice have also started their own Keepers of the Home meetings over there in the northern part of the state of Maine..
So Julie if you would email me your mailing address I will be sure and get it out to you... smile..
I am a winner, too.. grin..
I won this dear little package..
A couple of darling woolie gingerbread that smell heavenly..
Along with some gingerbread buttons..
So cute and tiny and a piece of lovely gingerbread flannel..
I love them and it truly made my day when Terry brought the package to me from the post...
I very seldom sign up for giveaways simply because I do not win..
I know you cannot win if I don't try..
Trace from GRANNY TRACE SCRAPS AND SQUARES BLOG
had a little spicy giveaway and I signed up and WON..
Thank you, dear friend...
How was the weekend for you girls?
We mostly just poked around home here..
I love weekends where it is not rush and go but just puttering away..
Terry put two new garage doors on last week..
Then we had church yesterday...
Pretty boring as far as something interesting for the blog but I did make a few meals..
As I have nothing better to share here are
a few weekend food pics...
I tried something new..
This is called Ada Bil Hamod..
Lentils with Lemon Juice and can be found HERE
I was into the Bulk Barn and saw the lentils..
Ahhh.. something different I thought..
Then I came across the recipe and gave it a try..
I really liked them but you know who would not even taste it..
No adventure in that man.. grin...
This is more his type of food.
Homemade Potato Scallop..
Do you ladies make this?
I believe it is my Mom's favorite recipe...
I only make it once in awhile and serve it with ham or such..
And of course a day rarely goes by that there is not some kind of soup in the pot...
My version of Hamburger Soup...
Do you make that?
This is simply hamburger, onions, celery and garlic cooked together until the meat is browned and cooked..
Add some beef broth or water and simmer for awhile..
A bay leaf and some dried lovage if you have it..
Then add a can of diced tomatoes and some veggies (I used green beans as I was in a hurry but usually I add carrots) and a bit of pasta or rice or potatoes...
Keep adding liquid as needed..
Lots of parsley, salt and pepper..
How do you make your Hamburger Soup?
And I thought I would share this pic..
They were standing at the end of the driveway talking..
One dear little man broke his thumb playing dodge ball..
Sweet, though, eh?
A dear old Dad and his boy and grandson..
Notice how the boys are listening to the words of wisdom...
Take care dear hearts...
Thanks for dropping by..
Tomorrow I hope to start making some lists...
Coming up with some ideas and plans for Christmas..
Hope to hear from you all..
