Some Ice Fishing and Skating..
I love my little boys..We had pink snowsuits and furry boots,white skates..and skis..
I never pictured myself with 4 boys..
I love my little boys♥
(Oh my gosh ..he's right..he's been telling me for 40 years I tend to repeat myself.. well..I see in print..clearly..he is right~:) )
Oli was playing street hockey too but didn't seem to make my collage cut:)
Ooops..nana's sorry Oli♥
I love that the children play outside~
Noah's dad..took him ice fishing..
He is the skater you see and the little face in the shack..apparently Timbits were being served..indoors..
He is the perfect candidate..for any weather any outing..
Here..when the lakes freeze over..numerous little ice fishing shacks spring up and dot the shore line..like little ice streets actually..My dad was such a fan!
Noah got to go for the first time..and seemed to love every minute..
He's never cold..never tired..:)
More energy than the Energizer Bunny..and if at all believable..more than his mom.:)
I love the above soup.. Won Ton..and I love it even better when I don't make it..one of our daughter's gave it to us the day we watched the ice hockey..
From Les Saisons De Clodine..an older book we both have..
The recipe is below:)
I played with paints,and my Micron..the little indoor garden area..
The red metal paintbox stole my ♥ last year and I ordered it from England..The Cotswolds I think.
Fun to try different paints..There are differences..even in my limited collection and zero knowledge..
I've been baking bread.. every second day..my husband loves to have small pieces of baguette to add to his lunches..
I was asked about the fig and walnut one I recently made..pictured above..
I simply used this recipe..I posted it January 10th..
And simply subbed the tomatoes and olives for figs and walnuts and added 1 tsp of EVOO..
Perfect..great little 2 baguette recipe~

Place 1 tsp of this mixture on a wonton wrapper..moisten the edges and fold like a wonton.
Press well to seal in the filling..continue in this manner until you have finished the filling..
In a large casserole bring to a boil your brothpoach the wontons 2 minutes and remove..
Add the mushrooms..spring green onions and the rest of the tamari..boil 3 minutes..add the wontons and simmer for 2 minutes.
That day my daughter didn't add the mushrooms and the chives..
Still so good~ I'll be making a batch and ziplock freezing this week.
I didn't have home made stock on hand..it was delicious in Costco's Organic chicken broth..so good that stuff:)
I would have posted the new blueberry pear muffin recipe..but I have to give it another chance..sometimes pears taste PEARRY♥..and other times.. not even like a pear..like a bland.. something..so although these muffins had the pear.. the taste was nowhere to be found..so I will try again..and get back to you..
Tulips are opening..hyacinths growing....all indoors mind you.. and the outdoor air getting colder!
The fire's going.. and indoor hobbies are a Godsend~
-20 F as I type~
