A New Visitor & Homestead Cooking
This huge cat has been visiting often this week. He slowly makes his way into the rock garden & across the homestead yard right to the fish pond. To his surprise the fish pond is still frozen over. The fish are safe from him. He sure is pretty. But he is not at all friendly.
The snow has been falling off & on. The wind is blowing. Every one likes warm food when it is cold. Time for some good old slippery pot pie for all.
Slippery potpie dough rolled & cut. Ready for the boiling beef broth.
Steaming hot slippery pot pie noodles.
Chopped purple cabbage with slaw dressing.
Dinner is served. Mashed potatoes gravy. Purple slaw. Roast beef & slippery pot pie with butter bread.
Apples peeled & cored. Ready to slice & add to the jars.
Apple crisp baked & cooling.
Little jars of apple crisp already to go in the frig. I am sure they will not last long.
Hand cut french fried taters in the old cast iron skillet. Every one like these.
Chicken corn noodle soup. Good even if you don't have a cold. But we have had our share of them here at the homestead already.
So this is just some of the yummy food we have made lately here in the homestead kitchen this week. The kitchen is clean once again & my apron is hung. I am sure it will not be long before I need it again. But for now off to church service we will go. I wish you all a wonderful week as we all start a new one early Monday. Take care.
Blessings Til Next Time!
