Happy Weekend my dears..
Friday has rolled around again already..
The weeks are flying by and we here in New Brunswick go from storm to storm each week..
We are looking forward to Spring days although there is not a lot of snow as we have had in the past..
Just no tulips or daffodils growing outside yet..
But the market has them and they sure do cheer up a stormy week..
The days have been a full of comings and goings and a bit of doings..
Made a bit of bread and an apple pie..
I am not a pie maker like my Mom..
She is an expert..
I used to make 30 pies at a time to freeze but have lost the touch as far as rolling out the dough..
Terry thought it tasted good but I was not that happy with it..
I divided the Cinnamon Raisin Bread dough into two loaves..
One with raisins and one without..
The link is HERE..
Then we made a little road trip to Sussex.
We have a bit of snow but nothing serious..
It is a pretty drive which you who have followed the blog has seen pics of every season, I think.. smile..
We came home to a one of our chickens which we raised at the farm..
All cooked and ready to go..
I just had to make the Couscous and boil some potatoes..
It was so delicious!!
Here is the link is HERE
My dear hubby had mashed potatoes.. As you are aware he is just not too adventurous.. grin..
He liked the roasted chicken with the lemon and crushed fennel seeds but asking him to eat Couscous with olives just was not happening.. It was not a lot of work so we had both..
A little teapot I picked up at the Thrift..
It did not have a handle but when I was cleaning out the pantry I found one on the top shelf...Fitted perfectly..
Love green Depression glass..
Do you? I actually love pink also although I gave most of mine to Shonda..
Looking through the mint to a snowy day out there..
Dear old Charlie is wondering why I have been taking his pic so often lately..
I told him to blame Penny.. smile..
She is a sweet follower who enjoys pics of Charles..
Here he is when he was just a baby..
Still making biscuits here and there..
So nice on a snowy afternoon with a cup of tea and Rhubarb jam...
Just found this lovely cookbook on my bookshelves..
One of my favourite cookbook authors..
I had bought it awhile ago and kind of forgot about it..
Terry brought me up a grocery bag of tomatoes that I froze last fall..
Such a great way to put away tomatoes for a day when you are not so busy as one is in the autumn..
A nice winter's afternoon is a great time to do up a big pot of tomato soup..
Just hold them under a hot water tap and they peel so easily and they taste wonderful..
Made a Chicken Pie for supper..
It was very tasty..
The recipe was in Marion's cookbook above..
Sorry about all the cooking going on here this post..
I guess it is all I have for tonight..
I am about finished...
Time for this old gal to go to bed..
I love to read a bit every night and the bedding has all been changed and smells like Gain..
The window will be open and the wind is blowing..
Terry found the right spot for my new wind chime.. grin..
I would say that all is well and God has been faithful!
So appreciate Him tonight..
