ohgawd I love to cook

Today ended up being a wonderful day. A cheer-me-up phone call from my BFF and then I got to work cooking and baking for tomorrow. I made two loaves of mush to fry tomorrow morning for breakfast. I made a cheese pie for tomorrows lunch. I baked a fresh coconut cake for my brother's birthday tomorrow, then, I made the most wonderful pans of Nut and Poppyseed rolls ever. I made the filling and put that out to cool, then made my good sweet bread recipe for the dough. Hubby says I outdid myself and made the best ever. of course, we HAD to sample them, so hubby took "the ugly one from the middle". He makes me laugh. We wouldn't want the family to eat something that wasn't up to par...LOL.

Good Gravy, food this good should be illegal! hahahahahahahahaha!!! Life is good....sigh....

Secret Surprise

Surprises are just so much fun! I got one in the mail today. One group is having a Secret Sister Surprise this year every couple of months. My first package arrived today and Darla was with me when it got here. She was watching me crochet for a new doll baby and got very excited at the box. She asked why I sent a box to myself? ( for the Secret Sister, we put the receivers name in both the "to" and "from" positions-clever huh?LOL).
Anyway, after I explained this she jumped in to help me open the package. Such fun in a little box. Wrapped in very pretty flowered tissue was two lovely FQ's-the pink one has little houses, cottages and windmills and the other is a light airy blue polka dot. Also included was a tiny set of gardening tools, a book about the circus, a darling green gingham bunny and a really wonderful hand crocheted spring dress in lovely pastels.
Darla quickly tried on the dress, grabbed the book and sat down to read the circus story to the bunny. What a wonderful present from my Secret Sister.
