Good Evening everyone!
My word but it is cold here in New Brunswick on this Saturday and the wind is fierce!
Come on in!!
We were so happy to spend today with a couple of our grandsons who didn't mind the weather at all.. smile..
Broccoli and Spaghetti with mushrooms and lemons..
Garlic bread and such.....
They hooked Netflix up for their grandpa and then they all went to the woodlot for some target practice...
None of them seemed to mind the cold and came back with big appetites for Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and Dills and all..
So love having them..
The March break is almost over for another year...
How the years have come and gone!
I wanted to show you a pic of the doll bottle I shared with you last post..
I have them squeezed in there but still want to organize the lace bits some and I found a couple of old roses to put on the bottle also..
You are getting the drift, though, eh?
Terry loves parsnips...
He brought a bag up from the basement fridge and asked me to do them up...
I guess he had a craving for them.. smile..
I think he was expecting a stew or such but I had noticed this recipe on the web one day ages ago and thought it was a good time to try it out..
4 or 5 parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks
2 floury potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 T. flour
1/2 diced onion
1 clove minced garlic (opt.)
chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper
3 T. oil for frying..
Cook parsnips and potatoes until tender and then mash well..
Mix in remaining ingredients and form into patties..
Fry until golden brown on each side..
Serve with a bit of sour cream and a salad on the side..
A lovely lunch..
We have been pottering around here the past week...
I cleaned up some old silver spoons that I had ..
I think that is King George on them..
My Mom had one when we were growing up and I always loved that spoon..
She said when she was little she would cry to use it and when she married Gram gave it to her.. When I saw these ones at Value Village hanging up in a plastic bag for a couple of dollars I was so happy..
We had her and my step-father over for supper last night and I showed them to her..
She was amazed at how pretty they were..
When I bought them they needed a cleaning rather badly and every once in awhile I will give them a rub and shine..
Love cleaning silver..
Like finding buried treasure! smile..
Mom loves Won Ton soup...
She worked in a Chinese restaurant for years!
I made some for supper..
Along with some Bubble and Squeak.
Everyone always wants to know what that is..
This is how I make it but it is not the real English stuff..
Fried bacon, sliced potatoes and onions and lots of sliced cabbage..
Salt, pepper and lots of fresh parsley and lemons squeezed on..
I know that the soup doesn't go with Bubble and Squeak but it was what they like...
Otherwise, everything is normal around here..
Buying and sorting seed stuff and thinking about our garden plans.
I certainly was a bit lackadaisical this week..
I hardly accomplished anything and feel like I am in a huge
Guess it is the Winter blaas...
I need to get my act together and get a few more Winter chores done..
Things like getting the woodwork painted and my linen closet a good do over.. Also, my lace cupboard need to be gone through..
And so on and so on...
Anyway, dear hearts tomorrow is the Lord's Day..
The weather is to be fine so that is a good thing..
Take care of yourselves and your sweet families...
God is good...
