ODDS AND ENDS
The last few months have been very interesting. Many things we plan, and many things just happen and we are moved along by the situations and circumstances. That was us!
Who would have thought we would have made so many trips. One for vacation, and two for funerals of dear friends in the last month.
I must apologize for my absence from your blog comments. I did have time to visit a few, but never seemed to have time to leave a comment.
I truly think things have slowed down, and I look forward to a week of visiting all of you and "leaving a comment".
Today I'll just share a few odds and ends. I had the second cooking class at the Villa Clubhouse last week, but didn't get any pictures. It was a good time. We made my Cinnamon Sour Cream Coffee cake, I showed them how to cut a fresh pineapple into chunks without making a mess, and we made a batch of candied walnuts.
The leaf candy dish above is filled with candied walnuts, and I can't walk by without nibbling on a couple. Have a real easy recipe if anyone is interested.
A new coffee pot is gracing my Coffee Station....the old one was showing it's age.
The two apple pies in the picture were for Willie, our Maintenance Man here at the Villa. I took him down a piece of apple pie last week with a scoop of ice cream, and he wanted to know if he paid for the ingredients and my time, would I make him two large pies for a family gathering he was having last weekend. Of course I said yes!
Never been commissioned to bake a pie before....HaHa.
Have a great week and I'll be seeing you real soon.
