It's been raining all day. . . sort of a slushy rain, since the temp is just above freezing. I have been inside all day, so it makes no difference to me.
I did venture out to the deck to get a picture of the two dozen turkeys that come by every day to pull up whatever they can from my garden. They are almost as bad as deer in garden destruction. A lot of my neighbors feed them , so they are around all the time. I try to ignore them. Whenever I look outside they are pulling up something from my gardens. It's the price I pay for living among wild life.
I did decorate the dining room today. I also pulled the cherry cake I made last month from the freezer and frosted it.
I thought it went nicely with the Easter table. I am not going into all of my Easter efforts here, , if you are interested, it's on my blog, Tablescaping, in the right column.
I also made this scalloped potato and ham dish for dinner.
I was concerned because my russet potatoes all sprouted and were tossed in the garbage, so I had only redskins to use. But it turned out quite good. Both DH and I loved it. I didn't think redskins would work for scalloped potatoes. I didn't have a recipe. I just threw sliced potatoes, onions, celery and ham together with a white sauce and baked it for a little over an hour. Then I topped it with a bit of cheddar cheese.
One of the nice things about having a blog is that you can toss up your opinions whenever you get the urge (compared to waiting until someone asks you).
I just had the urge.
I am watching a cake decorating show on FOODTV. It creeps me out when I have to watch people playing with food that others are going to eat. I understand that it must be done to decorate cakes, but for goodness sakes, must they have unkempt nails? They just did a close up of this woman's hands pinching and rolling the fondant and she has red nail polish that is 75% worn off. I can't help wondering if she has rolled it off into the fondant.
These women must know that the world will be getting a macro shot of their chewed up nasty nails. Wouldn't you think they would get a manicure or at the very least take some polish remover to their month old color?
Where's the Health Department? Aren't they supposed to wear food gloves when handling food?
I mean, really.......I'm just saying.............after watching that I could never eat that cake.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
