Just a few pics of some lovely Spring doings..
It certainly has been warm here the last few days and everything is blooming...
Apple blossoms, choke cherries, violets, and such..
The rhubarb is ready so that means one double batch of Rhubarb Muffins..
I froze 3/4 of them so that Terry and I won't eat more then we need.. smile..
This is a Harrowsmith recipe..
Apple and Rhubarb Muffins..
Then the fiddle heads are all ready for the picking if you can find them..
Our son brought us a big bag and when we went to church on Sunday another bag was given to us by a friend..
So on Monday I froze up about half and then the next day made the pickles...
We love them and they are lovely on a tray with cheese and such..
The recipe is on my Pinterest here...
I changed mine to dill, though..
Then of course, there is
Cream of Fiddlehead Soup..
1 cup chopped onion..
1/2 cup chopped celery
3 cloves garlic
3 sprigs thyme
1/2 cup wine
Salt and pepper
2 T. olive oil
2 T. butter
5 cups of fiddleheads..
6 cups of vegetable stock
1 cup cereal cream..
Saute onion, celery, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in olive oil and butter over medium heat for 5 minutes..
Deglaze pan with white wine and bring to a boil.. Add fiddleheads and stock and simmer for 20 minutes..
Puree with stick blender
Add cream and garnish with lemon zest...
I halve this recipe as Terry does not like cream soups..
I found this somewhere on the web...
Terry and I had town day yesterday and on the way home we picked the violets for my salve..
They are in olive oil in the crock pot right now and hopefully I will get it made tomorrow..
Thank the dear Lord my taxes are done, too..
Finished them today just before supper.. What a relief to get them done again for another year..
Tomorrow, I also need to clean and such..
When I do taxes then that is what gets done..
The first of the week was busy but I kept the stuff on the table and worked at it when I could..
But I am too old to do everything so I did what had to be done and the house is waiting for me.. smile..
Well, dear hearts....
I am tired and going to get some rest..
Thank you so much for your visits and comments and for praying for my friend, Kendra..
Take care and God bless...
