A gift from an associate. Brought back some really nice memories of Easter back home and the effort put into such occasions. Beautiful. Thank you Thomas Williams and your amazing girls!
I have some new neighbors moving in, their folks just drove across country to help with the unpacking. I know technically one simply does not offer two pies at the same sitting…. Nonetheless I delivered a pot pie, apple pie and litre of Chardonnay to use the process!
The weather forecast is saying we have a few more cold nights but my garden is showing some signs of spring. Dwarf irises are super special to me. I was thrilled when I found these in a garden store last year… I had some planted in a garden at home ( UK) in memory of a lost child. I felt a sense of completion when I was able to plant some here…..the sun is shining today and before the crocus have risen, before the daffodils have made their announcement, through the mulch I noticed these little beauties in all their glory. I wanted to share them with you.
We had pork chops last night that I made with some cranberry relish, added blackberries and raspberry balsamic and reduced it to a glaze…pushed it through the sieve to make a smooth sauce…I had the tiniest piece of pork but the glaze over my veggies…mmm mm good! If you need something healthy and fast this is it!
Starting the new year off nicely. I am throwing some supper in the oven early on in the day, while we clean and declutter the house. Not only do these ribs taste amazingly good, the whole house smells like a french bistro all day!
