I don't really let rainy days or Mondays get me down. It was an interesting work day that would only bore you. I mean really, how exciting is a bladder blowing up and almost knocking you over? So I'll move on to the weather. Getting out of work the rain was pouring down and as I walked to my car with some fellow coworkers, I thought of a few things that were good about this weather day. 1)It wasn't snow. 2)It wasn't windy. 3)It was in the 60's. 4)Everyone loved my rendition of "Singing in the Rain". Ok, I lied about that one. I was the only one who liked it. So I won't let this day make me sad...even if it's going to snow tonight and tomorrow. I'll deal with that tomorrow. This pic is my crabapple tree. It's the same tree that is pictured in the header...the header pic was taken exactly one year to the day that I took this pic...not kidding. It's been a loooonnnnngggg winter. My tree proves it.
This weekend I took some time to bake a few things that made the house smell good and thankfully they tasted as good as the house smelled. These little lovelies are called "Blinis"..and the recipe is from Donna (Starkey Hollow)..served with sour cream and raspberry jam..Yum! A cinnamon, sugar delight with cream cheese filling.
I also tried my hand at bread making. Bread and pie crusts are not my thing and I decided I just needed more practice. This recipe is from Sue's mom Darlene...thanks and even though it probably isn't as good as yours Darlene, it tastes great and I'll just keep practicing!
