Is Spring Here?
I hope so! How has your week been? The snow is melting in stages......time to buy some wellies, I think! Don't want to ruin my La Canadienne boots which I have been wearing for 3 solid months now. I gambled on trying a new recipe for the in-laws last Saturday (always a dangerous thing) but my gamble paid off and my supper turned out delicious.....I looked up a few bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken recipes and made my own variation.....thought what the hell, can't turn out that terrible....supper won rave reviews. Got away with that one!
Actually.... I have done that a few times, I have made recipes for company that I have never tried before ..everyone knows that's not a good idea, particularly when you are entertaining in-laws or someone who is an amazing cook and always entertains with ideas seemingly right out of a Martha Stewart Living magazine but I never try anything really wacked out or super ambitious.....I usually stick to something safe like chicken breasts or something similar to what I have made before ... though I made my first ham and scalloped potatoes for my mother-in-law's 75th birthday party a few years ago for 16 or 17 people and everything turned out great, I totally got away with that one too. he he he
Our little baby nephew was baptized on Easter Sunday (well, actually make that great-nephew....yes, you read that correctly.... Hubs is the youngest in his family and comes from a big family, and he became an uncle at 6 years old and I'm actually younger than the nephew and niece who had the baby.....yaddy yadda.........) Anyway Hubs is the Godfather and there was a big family celebration on Sunday, it was quite nice. Showed up with Timmie's coffee and our part was done. On to this week....our street is full of ridiculous ruts, my father-in-law got stuck in our driveway with his mini-van .... twice....on two different days..... We are averaging pushing out people on our street at least twice a day now.
Oh well, hello to Amusing April! Miserable March is finally over. Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend.
Just a few more days until we leave for Chicago! I can't wait for vacation. Thanks to everyone who gave such great suggestions for things to do, Hubs and I have quite the ambitious list going (as usual!) I might even get suckered into going to a baseball game....we shall see...
