I’m working on transferring my address over there, but it might take me a bit.

Birthday Boy!

Happy 7th Birthday to my littlest dude!

He made these awesome Lego place markers for his birthday dinner.

And he chose these totally cool candles for his cake.

He’s my favorite 7 year old son!!

Herbed Bread Stuffing Recipe

Yesterday I shared my favorite turkey recipe with you. Today I’m sharing my favorite stuffing recipe. It’s awesome the second, and third days. Beyond that, I don’t know because it never lasts that long!

Herbed Bread Stuffing

(found on nearly a decade ago)

[I’ll double it this year for 15 people who love to take leftovers home.]

10 c. (1-inch) cubes crusty country-style bread (1 lb.)

3 med. onions, chopped

3 celery ribs, thinly sliced crosswise

1 t. dried thyme

1/2 t. dried sage

1/2 t. dried rosemary

1 stick unsalted butter

1 1/2 c. chicken broth

1/2 c. water

Preheat over to 325. Toast bread in a large shallow baking pan in middle of oven til just dry, 25-30 mins. Cook onions, celery and herbs in butter in a large heavy skillet over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until celery is softened, about 10 mins. Stir together bread, vegetables, broth, water, and salt and pepper to taste, then cool completely, uncovered.

Note: You can make stuffing one day ahead and keep it covered and chilled. Makes about 12 cups

Back from Hiatus

It’s been a very stressful, roller-coasterish kind of summer around here, so last week we did a little of this

and this.

I needed to take a little restorative time to myself. A little healing time. A few days to forget all about the worries of the day and to concentrate on the beauty God put before  me.

I hope to see you more this fall. Blessings and joy to you as you enter this new season of the year.

I Know You’re Wondering

what on earth happened to me.

Well, it’s a long story. My husband’s sister passed away from brain cancer, then his elderly aunt (who had been living with that sister) moved into our home. A week after she got here, I got a cold, then a fever, then bronchitis, then pneumonia! I’ve pretty much become one with my love seat. The good news is it’s clearing up and I won’t have to be hospitalized. For that I’m immensely grateful to God.

I do plan to be around more often. We’ve been trying to fit in fun things despite my illnesses. Stay tuned for more photos of our gardens and good times at home.
