New Wall Colors

This is the new color of the old laundry room.  The trim is white and the door is antique white.  Hubby has to finish the trim and then it will be all done.  He is also working on painting the bathroom.

The inside wall of the old laundry room is the original outside of the house.  Jess had this paint left over from her bedroom.  I think it looks very good on this wall.  I wish I could figure out a way to take a picture that would show how it looks all together but it is a work in progress.  Hubby will paint the trim today.   After that we plan on going over to a friends house for a visit and a haircut. 

Temperatures here are very nice.  It was 42 degrees when we got up this morning.   We decided to let the fire go out today.  YEAH!  That always makes me feel a little “springy”.    I have clothes to hang on the line (of course).  Don’t we always have laundry?

I changed my supper menu last night to fried chicken, potato salad and green beans.  It was so nice and warm.  It reminded me of picnic days.  Tonights menu will be chicken stir fry with egg rolls.  I fried enough chicken last night to have left over for tonight.  I like to do that.  It makes the cooking a little easier and faster if I the meat is cooked in advance.

Time to hang my clothes outside and listen to a little praise music from our birds.  They are starting to sing such beautiful spring songs.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Cushaw and Pumpkin

Today along with my many other duties, I will be processing these beautiful cushaw and pumpkin.  There were 3 cushaws altogether but one is already in the steamer.   I plan to steam them enough to cut the peeling off, puree them in the sauce maker and then freeze the puree. You see the pumpkin in the box,  I have never tasted this type of pumpkin.  The lady who gave it to me said she thought they were called cow pumpkins.  She said they were very good for pies.  The cushaw was a gift from my mother-in-law.  Thanks, Judy. 

We had a nice afternoon yesterday.  Hubby needed a haircut so we went over to our friends house who cuts our hair for us.  We shared coffee and an excellent dessert she had made.  Then after he got his hair cut, Hubby and Faye got out their guitars and we enjoyed singing some old hymns.  I so enjoy these times.    The dessert she made was very simple.  4 large apples, 2 containers of store bought crescent rolls.  Quarter the apples and place a quarter in each crescent roll.  Roll the crescent around the apple.  Put into baking dish.  Heat 1 stick butter, 1 cup sugar, cinnamon (to taste) and 1 1/2 cups water until melted.  Pour this mixture over the apple dumplings and bake at 350 about 45 minutes or until cresents are golden brown.  Serve warm topped with whipped creme.  They were delicious.  I guess since I am working up pumpkin today I thought this recipe would work with pumpkin instead of the apples.  I think I would change the sugar to brown sugar, also add a little nutmeg.  Maybe I’ll try that today.  We’ll see.   Sunday is our Thanksgiving dinner at church.  I need to get started making rolls.

The sun is shining here today.  Lots of wind-gusts of about 30 mph.  This made walking a little more difficult.  Hubby went with me though and that made it much more enjoyable.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
