Apple Bread Pudding-
When you have tons of eggs it's time for an apple/currant/walnut bread pudding! I bought some bread since I didn't have any stale (we don't eat much sliced bread) and went to town. I used our own home canned/home-grown apple slices. It puffed up HUGE! It was great both warn and cold. I used nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon. It was delish.
sorry for the blur, but you get the idea...
Decorating A Silver Wire Basket-
Last week I bought my thrifted silver plate wire basket, for $4.00. Now the question was what do I do with it? I did some googling and decided to do this-
I liked the idea of a lime green-ish Hydrangea I saw online and found some at JoAnn's Fabrics for a buck, clearance! I also bought some purple/blue flowers. I used floral foam and some spare Spanish moss. I think I may re-do this with regular green moss at some point so the wire will show better. For now I like it!
some indoor Spring!
We got another 1" dusting of snow 2 days ago, then horrible fog Thursday morning, real pea soup. It's pretty when it's snowy! We've never had this much steady snow in one winter for a really long time.
Gwynn, (Celtic for white) seeing something yummy!
Hen Field Trip-
The poor chickens have a big, muddy run right now, so I let them out for an hour or more this afternoon. It was 45 today and cloudy but nice. They were in hog heaven! I let them dig thru the yard around the established shrubs. Mommy's good girls :)
too excited to stand still!!!
Winter Garden Survivor!
It's so funny how things in the garden work out sometimes. Last summer I bought an Italian Parsley plant at Home Depot. It did great all summer. I mulch everything in the raised bed late in the fall/early winter and don't bother pulling anything out. All winter I kept seeing some green. It's the parsley! Somehow it survived even through weather in the teens. That's one tough Italian!
