menu plan monday ~ july 17, 2017

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 was a hit at dinner.

Homemade chicken salad…yum!

Sunday morning, DH and I went out to pick flowers for the Sunday bouquet. The daylily season is well past its heighth, though there are still some in good bloom. Everything was covered with a heavy dew.

We picked some yellow daylilies, phlox, hydrangea and daisies for the bouquet.

DD’s kitty Buttercup found some quiet time to enjoy a patch of sunlight in the front hall.

I found something, too. Inspiration for my next Putz house, which is actually a barn. I took this screen shot of a picture I saw on Instagram and drew a pattern based on the picture. I am in the process of putting it together and will have a post about it soon.

    The chicken salad looks delicious. This is on our menu for tomorrow. Beautiful flowers as usual and I always love a cat photo. 😉 But the barn inspiration pic is wonderful and I a looking forward to seeing your putz barn all finished.

    Thank you, Laney! I am excited about the barn. I am working on the base and then I’ll have the fun of the embellishments!

    Dee, I have never made the unstuffed caggage rolls before, but am trying new recipes for my Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker). You can follow the link in the blog post for the recipe. I decided this evening, since we didn’t get to the butcher, to use some kielbasa sausage I have and stir fry it with cabbage instead of using the recipe. Kielbasa is always delicious! ~~Rhonda 🙂
