Thanks so much for all of your lovely comments and support yesterday. I really do have the best friends. Yes, I consider you my friends, and in some ways family. My blogging family. When hearts touch, beautiful bonds are formed. So thank you! Actually that person on the chicken post returned, deleted their comment and then added another one . . .
What a beautiful day it was here in this area of the UK that I live in yesterday. The sun shone all day and the temps got up into the double digit teens. It won't be long before the ants are back marching two by two through my kitchen, so I better get some traps! Todd mowed the lawn yesterday. The first mow of the year. I wasn't sure that he should, but he insisted. And then he went out and brought me back these.
Some lovely red roses. For Mother's Day. It is Mothering Sunday today and he wanted to mark it for me in some way. I love them, and he's just the best husband in the world, next to yours of course!
I did not work on my book much yesterday. Bad me. I wasted half the day cooking a new recipe I wanted to try for a Sheet Pan Easter Dinner in an hour. Oh boy. I don't want to diss another person's recipe but if you see a recipe for that proceed with caution. The potatoes are gorgeous, but the carrots ended up undercooked and not glazed much, the asparagus was overcooked (WAY over-cooked) and the ham was burnt. The instructions were somewhat ambiguous. I had already put things on the wrong baking sheets when I discovered that it was not all supposed to go on the way I had put it on, and the timings were way off. I would have partially cooked the carrots first (Like you had to do for the potatoes) and the temperature was far too high for the ham, also the asparagus should only have been added the last ten minutes. I knew that, but still I went with the recipe. Don't you hate it when you know something is wrong but you shrug your shoulders and go along with it anyways because you want to do what the person said to do? More fool me. IN any case, we ate it, and enjoyed the potatoes very much. There are no photos. It was not photo worthy. I might try it again, but doing things my way next time around, because I think the concept is great. Easter Dinner on a sheet pan, in an hours time. We will see.
But I could not help thinking as
I watched a person sitting
in a tub filled with
That wouldn't half feed a lot of starving children . . .
In The English Kitchen today . . . Cookie Crisp French Toast Sticks. Todd loved these, and I confess I did too. I am only human . . . I did partake of them.
Have a brilliant Sunday. Be blessed! Don't forget!
