menu plan monday ~ july 24, 2017

Last Saturday, DH and I went to my Dad’s house for a family reunion. I shared a picture of Dad and his siblings in my last post. Another highlight of the afternoon was a drawing for two quilts that had been made by my paternal grandmother and her mother. The first quilt was won by […]

As promised, I made mayonnaise last week. After a false start, success! It’s not hard to do, but there are rules to follow. If you want to give it a try, I’d suggest you google for some hits and tips before beginning. Understanding the process helps! I used the mayonnaise to make chicken salad, which […]

The past week seemed to drag. Because the Fourth was on a Tuesday this year, it threw off my weekly clock! I had a hard time figuring out which day it was because the Tuesday felt like a weekend. This week should be better. Not as much planned. This morning, while I was making the […]

Last week went by quickly. I’ve been working on Putz house bases. When the houses are done, the picture will be on the bottom of the base. A little surprise when the house is turned over. I think I will put a barn on the one with the cowboy and the horse. I especially like […]

We had plenty of fridge food (leftovers) to use for the first part of the week, so I put off menu planning till today. The grands are coming over Friday evening to spend the weekend. Just in case we really do get some snow on Saturday. If we do, they will enjoy playing in it. […]

menu plan tuesday ~ february 28, 2017

I haven’t posted a weekly menu plan for a long time. Today, I’m thinking about what to make for the next few days or so. I am thinking about items that can be made ahead and then frozen or that can keep in the fridge for a few meals. Crock pot meals are good because […]

We raised five Black Swallowtail caterpillars that DH found on the parsley late this summer. Last week four of them emerged. Clark ignored the caterpiller tank until the first one emerged. Then he was totally focused! The butterflies were released as soon as their wings had dried. Clark hasn’t shown any interest in the fifth […]

I’ve had another busy week. Older Daughter and Middle Daughter helped me can 21 jars of spiced apple slices, plus two quarts we put in the fridge for immediate enjoyment. I am working on beefing up the inventory for my Etsy shop before the Christmas season arrives. I’ve posted some new Christmas card shadow boxes […]
