Looky there – a whole post without a photo of food. It IS possible. Maybe not probable, but possible.

The landscape is coming to life, a millimeter at a time, with great texture and color! And our best girl is out and enjoying the sunshine every time it’s offered.

Hoping you and your best loved are keeping well. So far so good around here!

Our very orchestrated Sunday supper. If you hadn’t noticed, I really love to cook, but I prefer a big bang for my buck in the kitchen. I don’t generally want to painstakingly create meals that will be gone in minutes.

That being said, I also like a little adventure and own cookbooks galore. Some of the recipes are of the painstaking, slow Sunday Supper ilk. I was feeling a strong pull toward my Teutonic roots and have a glorious German cookbook by Alfons Schuhbeck in need of a little mileage. So, I stuffed chicken breasts with ham and cheddar and topped them with a butter laden sherry wine sauce. The potato salad came from the same book, but it is sadly missing radishes because two grocers were out of them and dried tarragon! What the?

The bright colored salad is the closest I could get without the aforementioned tarragon to a carrot salad we rather enjoy at Uwe’s, one of our favorite local places.

And the cake, oh good grief! It is Christina Tosi’s Apple Pie Cake from Milk. Talk about laborious. So very many steps! Such deliciousness, though. My stars.

Our fab shed dolled up with icicles and wild bee house!
The light!

Just a quick hello on a beautiful snowy morning! It is cold, expected to top out at a whopping 16 degrees, but how cute is Juniper in her shoes (and wearing two coats!) and the trees in their frosty robes. Happy Tuesday!
