Apron

100_5022

I finally finished the apron using one of the new patterns.  What do you all think?  I think my other apron pattern was a lot easier and faster but I know it is time to step it up a notch.  My thanks to Grace for modeling for me.  I used some material I already had to practice on.  I’m not sure I like the rick rack, though.  I have another pattern to try and then I will decide which one I want to use for the matching mother, daughter, doll aprons. 

No church today due to bad weather conditions.  Dave, Jess, and boys did get to come yesterday however the wind came also.  It was just too cold for Daniel to play in the snow.  Wind chills below zero.  We had a good visit though.  I made fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, and homemade rolls for “lupper”.   For those of you confused by this term, this is when it is too late for lunch and too early for supper.  We also had cushaw pie for dessert with whipped creme. 

Now I must tell the story of why we had fried chicken for lupper.  Earlier in the week, Jess had mentioned she would like to have fried chicken.  As I knew they would not get to stay long, I thought something a little faster would be better.  I decided on hot roast beef sandwiches with green beans.  They called when they were on the way here and she jokingly said David would have liked fried chicken too.  This conversation was on speaker phone.  Hubby overhearing about the fried chicken, which happens to be his favorite meal, said “Oh, I didn’t know fried chicken was an option”.  By this time I am feeling a little out numbered so I decided to give in and make the chicken.  It was a wise choice.  Everyone enjoyed the meal and that makes this mama’s heart happy. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Potatoes

The girls and I took the morning off from school to dig our potatoes.   If we did not count wrong, we had 8 drywall buckets of potatoes.  YEAH!  I think homegrown potatoes are so much better than store bought.  But then I think everything homegrown is better.  The temperature here is still chilly.  Around 50 degrees.   Feels like fall.  I guess I will have to build another fire this evening.  The girls and I also gathered about 2 gal. of peppers this morning.  We just gathered them all as it is sure to frost here soon. 

I think tonights menu will be hot roast beef sandwiches with green beans.  Maybe some chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  Take care and God bless.
