Good Evening everyone..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth ..
Hope all is well with you and yours..
Another week has passed and tomorrow is Monday once again..
This has been a hot summer and to be truthful I am enjoying the rain storms that came up late this afternoon..
We had a lovely church service this morning..
Then we welcomed our new pastor and his family with a potluck
It was delicious!
I had made another batch of flat breads yesterday and took them along with a seafood salad and of course some chocolate fudge..
The grandson's favourites.. smile..
Then this afternoon we went for a drive..
Can you believe the Tansy is all in blossom...
I always think of them as a herald to Fall.. Do you?
We went to Cole's Island and Terry was scouting out the river..
The first picture is of the Caanan River also..
Terry said that since it was Sunday we would go to the land of Caanan... grin...
Just a little close up pic of Skittles...
He is doing well..
He enjoys sitting as the centrepiece of the kitchen..
He feeds on the roots of the plants...
Picked a pot of raspberries...
Terry did and I made a dessert...
This is an Australian recipe..
I found it on Instagram...
Here it is..
125 grams (1/2 cup) of soft butter
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup of milk
1 1/2 cup of self rising flour
Put in a greased 9 inch pan and press the raspberries on top..
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes..
This is simply delicious..
There was a cup of berries left over so I made a sauce with 2 T. water and 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 tsp. lemon juice..
Place in a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer..
Add a tsp. of cornstarch to a tablespoon of water..
Stir well and then add to sauce..
Simmer just for a minute or two..
Taste to adjust sugar and such to your liking..
Put in a pouring pitcher and cool..
You can also add a spoon of whipped cream..
I will try to remember to take a pic before it is gone..
Last week we took a little day trip to Fundy National Park..
I took a few pics for you...
Hope you enjoyed the little trip..
Did you notice that we stopped and had a lovely sticky bun from the bake shop in Alma..
It went lovely with a cup of tea..
The breeze off the Bay of Fundy was so refreshing on that hot day..
Charlie enjoyed the day trip, too.. smile..
Something about the sea air gives you a yearning for fish!
And this is one of our favourite ways to eat it..
I guess this is all for tonight my dears...
Thanks so much for dropping by..
And thanks for all your help with the Soapwort from the last post..
I think I shall be transplanting it into a different bed.. smile..
Welcome to the new followers and love love your comments..
Have a great week and may God bless and keep you..
Hugs from this corner of my world..
