The snow is up to our front porch
We had an incredible weekend.  We did absolutely nothing on the spectacular side, but it was just a wonderful weekend.  Lately, I categorize weekends as good or great if I can actually get anything accomplished around the house.  This weekend was a big "yes"!

Because of the ridiculously cold temps, the farmer's market was closed today.  Although we love attending the market, it was a fabulous opportunity to get a few things done that we've been wanting to do.  I made French Toast for breakfast, a Red Velvet Cake for J for dessert, cleaned up the soap room, went through my closet and purged a few things, and went to the laundromat to do 3 loads of laundry.

Why the laundromat?

Oh, that would be because on Saturday morning, when a load of laundry was just about finished in our washing machine, there was a strong smell of burning rubber.  As soon as I opened the door, out came smoke.  Ugh.....  It's only about 5 years old so we're assuming a belt or something has gone on it.  Fingers crossed that's all it is because we will be replacing it in a couple of months when we re-do the bathroom and laundry room.  Until then, I need it to work.

J got more snow blowing done.  Yup, we had more snow.  Not much though - about 6 inches.  It was the temps and wind chill that were more than a bit uncomfortable for the day.

We opened the coop door this afternoon to go in and clean.  The girls took a look outside and went right back in.  No thank you, they said to the chilly windy day.  Instead, they returned to enjoy warm oatmeal and leftover mac & cheese that I brought to cheer them up.  Not so sure it cheered them up but they definitely enjoyed it.

Tonight, the dogs are cuddling by the pellet stove and I'm selecting a few more seeds to buy for this year's garden.

On the menu this week:  Slow-Cooker Baby Back Ribs with Mac & Cheese and Broccoli; Seafood Gratin with Rice and Asparagus; Homemade Pizza & Wings with Salad; Seared Pork Chops with Pierogies and Butternut Squash; Beef & Bean Burritos with Mexican Rice and Corn; and Chicken with Pasta and Spinach Cream Sauce.

Hoping you've had a wonderful weekend!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Quick Bread

November 07, 2017


It's pumpkin season and this may be a perfect way to put it to good use.  This bread is light on pumpkin flavor but super moist and extremely delicious.  You can also freeze pumpkin puree measured into 1 c. containers to make this throughout the winter.  


I have not yet attempted a vegan version of this.  If I get brave I'll let you know......  Be careful not to over bake it.

Fall Is Almost Over?

October 24, 2017



Is it possible that fall is almost over? Temp's here are in the upper 60's and low 70's so you'd never know that it's the end of October. This just doesn't usually happen! Even the leaf peepers were likely disappointed this year........it was so warm that the leaves just kind of crumbled off of the trees. Although they were pretty, there didn't seem to be the same brilliance of color that is...
