Always good....

Sara McKeefer - if you are reading, I am waiting to have your mailing address so I might be able to send you the book in which you were interested!  Email me at: intimeforbreakfast@gmail.com.

You may have seen this before -


It was baked in honor of George Washington's birthday, which was a number of days ago.  The recipe came from a Pillsbury advertising insert from either the newspaper or a magazine.


It is easy to see that I didn't use a two-crust pastry, but made it cobbler-like instead.


Frozen cranberries were used for this, and they worked very well!

Wishes for a Terrific Tuesday are coming your way!

Gadgets....

Do you have one of these?


It comes apart....


....and came with details -


We attended a benefit for the Ulster Project on Saturday night, and I had the winning bid on this in the Silent Auction.  I am anxious to give it a try!

Wishes for a Marvelous Monday coming your way!

Sunday, March 1, 2015....Second Sunday in Lent....

From John 6:35 -

           "Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me

                                            will never be hungry,

              and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.'"

The Mission Focus for today, as listed in the 2015 United Methodist Women Prayer Calendar, is the Dallas Bethlehem Center in Dallas, Texas.

Special blessings to you on this Sunday.  May this day be one in which you are surrounded by love, joy, and peace.

In review....

What a week!  Two different snow storms brought us these views -


From Tuesday morning....


....and from Thursday morning!

So - it was a good week to make progress on this -


That's the living room flooring project....


....and this is the project that resulted from thawing what was thought to be whole wheat pizza dough!:-)


Of course, we started the week honoring George Washington with this Cranberry Cherry Cobbler!

Sara McKeefer - if you're reading, I need you to contact me with your mailing address so I will be able to send you Daughters of England!

Enjoy your week-end!

The new season....

....for the Women's Chorus has begun.  The director has once again come  up with some great selections for us to learn.


These will be fun to sing.  

My favorite, though, is this one -


Road conditions and illness of several members have kept us from rehearsals the past two weeks.
Hopefully, we will be able to be back on schedule this week.

Unfortunately, we will be proceeding this season without one of our long-time members.  Her passing last week has brought us sadness, and we will honor her memory by singing at her memorial service, as she requested.

The sun is shining here today, and we have those "blue skies!"   No snow in the forecast for the coming week!

Another view....

For a change of pace, I am showing you the view out of our back door this morning.  The previous snow events have shown things out our front door.




We had fresh snow overnight.  The weather people are saying it is officially 4 1/2 inches.  Not much warmth or sunshine today to help with melting, and cold temperatures will be with us overnight.

In the second picture, you may be able to identify the broom corn on the lower left area.  The birds have really been enjoying this during these winter months.  There are a couple of other plants around the yard.

This seems like a good day to continue that reading I've been doing!  Enjoy your Thursday, wherever you are.

Sara McKeever, I will be happy to send you Daughters of England.  Please contact me with your mailing information, and I will get that book in the mail to you!

We love breakfast....

In fact, I believe I can safely say that breakfast is my favorite meal!  Since I have disclosed that bit of information, it will come as no surprise that this is my selection for this Cookbook Wednesday.




Published in 1987, it hasn't been around as long as others that have been featured here.


It is easy to see that there are many interesting selections included in the book.


It is also easy to see that this book has been well-loved!


One of my favorites is this Apple Pancake.  Yum!


This is very tasty, too!


Oops!  Extra dose of love on this page. LOL  The recipe for Baked Doughnuts was a favorite of Country Girl when she was still at home.  In fact, it still is.:-)

Do you enjoy breakfast?  What is a favorite of yours?

Just so you know, I am no longer receiving email notices of comments by Octoberfarm, Brit in Tennessee, or Bee Lady.  I like to respond to your comments, and I've tried to do that under your comment on the blog.

Also, no one has stated a "claim" on this book -

  
If you are interested in it, just let me know in the comments.  

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
