Good morning everyone! Happy Sunday to you.
I love Sundays! They are my favorite day of the week, for sure.
 
My husband and I always cook a large family dinner on Sundays. We have always done this, even though it is just the two of us now. Some things you never learn to downsize on. The leftovers come in handy throughout the week, though.
 
This week has been busy as usual. I posted a few pictures. I made some of Faye’s delicious rosemary bread. You can find the recipe here. Take some time to check her blog out, while you’re there. She has all kinds of great recipes.
 
My husband mixed up a batch of bran muffins. They are AWESOME! I promise to post the recipe in the next day or two.
 
We also made a large pan of lasagna. I love lasagna! We had it with the rosemary bread. DELICIOUS!
 
As you can see, the new puppy is doing great. He LOVES the snow. I just hope he starts doing better in the potty training area soon. He and Hollie are fast becoming best friends.
Our little granddaughter is loving the snow, as well. She insists on wearing her father’s trapper hat when she goes outside to play. She loves the soft fur on her little cheeks.
 
Well friends, I do hope you are having a wonderful Sunday in your corner of the world. For us it is truly a day of rest and family.
 
“If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the Lord honorable; if you honor it, not going your own ways, or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly; then you shall take delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”  Isaiah 58:13-14

Blessings,
Julie

  2. Thank you, as always, for your kind words Faye. Everything tasted so good. We make your rosemary bread often. It has definitely become a favorite, especially for sandwiches. I wonder, do you have a brown bread recipe? I am still looking for a good one.
    No problem on the link. You are my favorite blog out there, by a landslide!
    Blessings,

  4. Oh, I agree with you about making a large dinner - leftovers are so helpful; it's a sensible thing to do.

    I'm guessing you must live in New England - the style of house. I'm in CT.

    Have a happy Easter! (found you through Rhonda's)

    1. Thank you for visiting, Lisa! I love to hear from new folks. We live in Northern Maine. It's still winter up here. I am patiently waiting for spring. The house you see on my blog is our inspiration house. We are building one just like it this summer. I can't wait! We have been planning it for 10 years now. I will be posting the progress of the house here on my blog, so come back often if you would like a peak.
      Blessings,
      Julie
