This is the last one…..
I still have a few left, but they’re just going to be sliced and roasted for a vegetable side dish.
I was thinking I should do something sweet with the stuffing for the last one.
I have maple syrup….
Maple syrup makes me think of pancakes and pancakes make me think of breakfast … Continue reading.....
It’s soup season.
For me there are only two things that make winter tolerable.
The first is that I don’t have a long list of outdoor chores every day – no hoeing and mowing and trimming and all that sort of stuff.
The second is the soup.
I love soup.
Mon mari accepts soup….
As long as there are biscuits … Continue reading.....
We’ve been having thunderstorms lately.
Thunderstorms means no computer, no internet and no phone.
With thunderstorms often there is heavy rain.
Heavy rain means no TV reception.
It seemed like a good time to look at cookbooks.

I got the idea from Anneli at Delicieux and her Chard Panade.
As usual, I read the recipe, liked it, decided to make it and … Continue reading.....
I haven’t done a chard post in a bit….
I’m guessing it’s been about 9 months since I picked the last of it.
It’s been slow to start this yeas (as has everything else), but it’s finally getting big enough to pick.
Could it be that summer is here?

These, along with the Carrot Cake, are the reasons I don’t bake.
There is absolutely no point in making something that is not incredibly delicious.
I mean, why bother baking something that doesn’t taste good?
And, after going through all the work of making it, one certainly can’t just throw away the leftovers, now can one?
If they weren’t so … Continue reading.....
