A CHANGE IN PLANS AND OTHER STUFF
I changed my mind and decided not to make the hot cross buns this year, but wait until I get a new mixer with a bread hook. (My birthday's coming up... hint, hint)
I love it when my bananas get freckles, cause that means banana bread is just around the corner. So I will be making loaves of banana bread and decorating the tops with drizzle, green coconut pockets with candy bird eggs (pictures later)
Easter sugar cookies for the kids. I was out of red food coloring, so my pink frosting is some juice from the strawberries I had chopped in the frig for shortcake. Not only did it turn it pink...it tastes like strawberries. Bought some sprinkles today, so the next batch will have a little more colorful.
I needed gas so on my way to visit Elizabeth I stopped at Costco. Mistake...Not only were there LONG lines... I got stuck in a line behind a truck (see the top of it just under the sign) and I think he put in 50 gallons. So to pass the time I took this picture,ate a granola bar and drank a bottle of water.
For my new followers, I visit a dear lady, Elizabeth every Thursday. She is 97 and in a Assisted Living Facility. She was my neighbor before she fell and could not live alone anymore. This rose was in the garden on the grounds.
She loves flowers and I hope she gets stronger so she can be outside in her wheelchair to enjoy the beauty.
What is on your Saturday Agenda...Having company for Easter? Are you doing the cooking?
