The temps went down to freezing last night. I checked on my daffodils and
tulips and they seemed to withstand the cold. The plum trees all over town
are blooming and they are such a welcoming sight proving to us that
spring has arrived despite the crazy weather.
This pair of vintage lamb salt and pepper shakers have been in my
cottage for several years now. They are chippy and worn, but I fell in
love with them. I still recall the day I bought them at a little antique
shop in my neighborhood. I remember the look on the dealer's face
when I bought them, as if to say "why would she want those?"
I have not decided on what to serve for Easter dinner. Should I
roast a leg of lamb or should we have ham this year? I saw some lovely
racks of lamb at the butcher counter yesterday. Asparagus is always on
the Easter menu regardless of what else I serve. Some tiny rolls with
a compounded butter mixed with fine herbs would be nice. I better
make my decision today so that I can get my shopping done.
I am off to my Mom's house this morning to oversee the latest installment
of her kitchen remodel. I have the carpenters scheduled to start the trim work.
We are beefing up the crown molding in the dining room too. It will be a
Bentley and I wish you and yours a Blessed Easter. We will be spending
time with family and will see you all next week.
Until then we are joining ~
Bentley ~ let's head over to grandma's house and watch the saw dust fly!
