Baking, Cooking, Scrubbing, Coco


What does one do when they can't go outdoors because of the weather???  Work in the kitchen of course!  Here is my wholewheat bread rising in the bowl that I bought at a garage sale a long time ago in Michigan for 25 or 50 cents I believe!  A bargain for sure!


And here are oats ready to pop in the oven for my homade granola.


The thermometer did look hopeful but tonight we could get up to 12 inches of Lake effect snow!!!


Here is "wonderful gardener" scrubbing the den carpet!  Gotta keep him in shape for gardening!


And here is "wonderful gardener" resting.  Just one problem!!!  Coco beat him to his chair so he is sitting in my little one.  Hmmmmm.  Who is in control at our house!


Ready to teach one of my piano students!  At the end of her lesson we play a game.  Today I have flash cards all around the kitchen table with notes on them.  If she can read the note correctly she gets to eat or keep the M&M.  If not, too bad!  I get to eat it!  THINK!!!!

We are cold and dry here in Utah. I'm so looking forward to March so I can get back outside and get digging in the soil!!

I've been cooking here too. Today I'm making a casserole. I used to hate my mom's casseroles when I was growing up, so I'm shocked I'm even thinking about it.

Hi Stoney Acres, I am not appreciating the snow about now but thankful we are not in a drought! Nancy

Hi Daphne, You do so well at your cooking! I do make casseroles sometimes and we both like them so that is a winner! Nancy

Hi Nancy! I love to cook when I can't be outside too! I bet that bread is delicious! And the bowl is so pretty! Yum! Granola! What a nice gardener you have there! Twelve inches of snow? Don't know what I'd do with all that! Stay warm! Blessings from Bama!
