A spring bouquet on the coffee table makes me happy! The Iris is from my garden, and the Tiger Lilies from the grocery store.
Do you know what this is? I didn't. It's a gift from Elizabeth. When I visited her this week, she said she had a gift for me, and proceeded to pull this pan (before I cleaned it up) from her bottom drawer in a plastic bag. She said she had it for years upon years, and it looked like it, a it was really quite dirty. She said it had been in storage, and she ask her son to bring it so she could give it to me as she know I bake a lot of pies. Now when an Apple or Berry pie boils over the edge, the extra lip will catch it, and it's also easy to take the pie out of the oven. I just love that dear lady. She is always thinking of me. I don't know if it has an official name, but I'm tickled to have it.
This morning, a large speckled white dove landed on the front lawn for a worm or two and was able to get a picture with my zoom. I started singing "On the wings of a Snow White Dove"...and now I can't get the tune out of my head.
Met a lady in the line at the grocery store buying fresh beets. I ask her how she cooks them, and she said she bakes them just like potatoes. Cuts the stalk off close to the beet, and removed the tail. Washes them rubs them with olive oil, makes a puncture or two, wraps them in foil, and bakes for an hour in the oven. I tried it.... Oh my goodness..talk about delicious..doesn't even taste like a beet. It soft, I added a little salt and butter, and the lady at the store says she adds some goat cheese.
What kind of week did you have??
