Well it seems like it's warming up a bit outside. The older I get, the less I like the cold. I do love winter and it's infinite beauty, though.
So what are you doing to keep yourselves busy these days? On really cold days I love to be in the kitchen cooking. I think that's probably my favorite part of winter. So many yummy things to cook.
This is a delicious pork roast we had the other night. I was just about to put it in when I remembered to snap a picture, but wouldn't you know I forgot to get the after one!
Some homemade banana bread.
This was our dessert. It's a fruity oatmeal square. I have worked on this recipe for a while now and I think I have finally got it just about perfect.
Oh there is always something to do or cook, isn't there?
A Virtuous Woman is a homemaker. She creates an inviting atmosphere of warmth and love for her family and guests. She uses hospitality to minister to those around her. (Proverbs 31: 15, Proverbs 31: 20 – 22, Proverbs 31: 27, Titus 2: 5, 1 Peter 4: 9, Hebrews 13: 2)
Yesterday a very good friend, Debbie stopped in for a visit. I love it when friends come over. Sadly though, I did not get a picture. While she was here, my sister Robin also stopped in for a visit. What a lovely surprise. Although we only live about 30 minutes or so from each other, we hardly get to visit. I think she works way too much! We talk on the phone everyday though.
I find that a visit from a good friend or relative is joy to the soul!
Well, I have some eggs on to boil for egg salad, more banana bread ready to come out of the oven, some tea water boiling and a husband who should be arriving soon for lunch.
Thank you to all of you faithful readers. I know I haven't been very faithful in my blogging lately. I do appreciate you!
