Hope you all can join us for the blog hop over at
We have had a busy week trying to get moved down to our cottage by the Bay of Fundy for the Summer months..
I am sorry that my pics are a bit scarce.. smile..
Above is looking out my kitchen window at the apple tree all in blossom here at the cottage ..
As you know our Spring and Summer are a bit behind most of the world.. grin..
With our cool temps we are still enjoying the homemade bread...
No Knead, of course.. smile..
And making use of the whole chicken with some lovely soup...
I have discovered Bok Choy find it a delicious change it in our soups..
An old shelf on the cottage wall ...
One of our favorite salads..
Mushroom and Garlic..
Put a couple of cloves of garlic and a pinch of salt in your mortar and pestle .Squash it all about..Add 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice and then with a whisk slowly add 1/2 cup of good olive oil..
Slice a package of mushrooms into a bowl and add a 1/2 cup of chopped red or Spanish onion ..
If you are making a big salad just double the dressing..
Pour over your dressing and add some chopped herbs..
Let it sit for a few hours to blend flavors..
Making our weekly ration of homemade high bush cranberry juice..
The bags of berries are getting depleted and they won't be ready again until Fall..
We will do up twice as many as we enjoyed it so much this past Winter..
We still have lots of rhubarb so next week when we get more settled I hope to make some Rhubarb Cordial..
Pork Chops, again...
Terry loves his chops..
And I love my Spanish Rice so we kind of repeated last week's menu but changed the rice around..
Oatmeal Chocolate Cake..
An old standby that quenches the crave for chocolate..
Each day I find myself snapping a picture or two in the kitchen - a pile of ingredients, a table waiting for us to gather around, a sink full of soapy dishes, a cup of tea, dinner as it comes out of the oven - simple, everyday moments in the kitchen. These photos serve as a reminder of days gone by and as encouragement to carry on in this busy kitchen of ours when inspiration is lacking.
Thanks for dropping by and if you have any questions I will hopefully eventually get to you..
Getting moved down here takes a few trips back home where the Internet has been moved from there to here.. smile..
Thanks for your patience..
