SPRING FORWARD SUNDAY
As I woke this morning at the regular 8am time by the alarm, I was reminded that it was 7am yesterday at this time. Not complaining , just sayin !!!!!
I came across a couple recipes that we are trying out today. I have cooked a turkey breast all night in one of the crock pots and this morning in another crock pot I fixed a "crock pot" broccoli cheese casserole. We also put dried mixed beans in my power cooker and covered them with water, set the dial for 30 minutes as per instructions. I did not think these would be done in that 30 minutes, but worth a try. After the 30 minute cook time was up it went to the warm cycle and held there.
Church was good today, preached by Craig our associate pastor again in the absence of the senior pastor who is on a mission trip.
Everyone made it to lunch today with a couple extra guest. Susan and her little boy, Benji , ate with us today. She brought a couple yummy desserts to go along with everything else.
The broccoli casserole was delicious and the dried beans in the power cooker were perfectly cooked.
We also had candied sweet potatoes, boiled red potatoes, green beans, corn and rolls with iced sweet tea to drink.
Everyone enjoyed the food and fellowship.
EL and I showed Susan around the farm and then everyone left for their own Sunday afternoon activities.
As I walked around this evening I am starting to see the first signs that spring growth is starting.
The green buds on these plum trees have really progressed since just last Monday when we were pruning them.
This sunset shows the edge of the rain clouds that are moving into our area overnight and for the entire week if the weather gurus are correct.
But the temperatures look more early spring like.
Good Night and God Bless.
