Wow, more snow!  After cleaning up the snow around here Colin headed over to Beachburg to dig out Ella and Grandma.  Colin even was up on the house roof to shovel snow.  At least it’s a shorter fall than the barns and I know Grandma doesn’t have sharp and pointy farm implements around the base of her house.

Busy this week getting the house ready for Ella’s birthday party on Saturday.  A couple of her friends are staying over too.

sandwiches

spaghetti

Tuesday:

chili con carne

I tried a new grocery store on Friday.  Eganville has a Foodland.  I’ve never been in there before.  Wow they have a beautiful fruit and vegetable section.  Lots of variety AND 3, yes 3 kinds of tomatoes that DON’T come from Mexico!!!  Guess where I’m buying our fruit and veg. from now on?  Their bakery department is amazing too.  There must have been 5 kinds of store-made bread.  Their regular store-made white bread is only $2, which I’m willing to pay on days I don’t want to bake.  They also had mini jam-filled doughnuts.  They had a few other things on sale in the flyer so I did a bit of shopping.  They had pork shoulder roasts on for $1.99/lb.  Boy they sure looked nice.  So I picked up a 4lb one and made it on Saturday.  MMMMMM, that was really yummy.  It was just as nice as Colin’s pork.  Sale is still on, so I might drop in on tonight when we’re there for skating and pick up another roast for the freezer.

Burr!  Winter has returned today.  -27 C (16 F) with the windchill!  Luckily today was not the day Colin had to drive home the “new” tractor home from Renfrew.   He drove it home Friday and only had to deal with light flurries.  It took 2 hours from Renfrew, I’m so glad it was only -1 or so on Friday.

Colin doesn’t usually like cab-less tractors, but this one is for doing stuff (eg., moving equipment) in the barn so it has to be short enough to fit in the doors.   As it was, he had to take the exhaust pipe off to fit.  Colin is quite happy with the tractor.  Very little hours on it and only cosmetic stuff that needs to be done in the spring.

Monday:

grilled cheese

spaghetti

Tuesday:

mac & cheese

garlic chicken

Wednesday:  Ella’s Birthday

tacos

McDonald’s

Thursday:

tomato soup

chicken Caesar salad

Hmmm, Ella is still coughing.  Checking the calendar and it’s been almost a month!  If she’s still coughing by Wednesday I’ll have to take her over to the clinic.  I’m waiting till Wednesday because the good doctor is usually on then (and the bad one isn’t).  She’s still coughing up stuff so I don’t think it’s ‘just’ bronchitis.

Busy week in the kitchen.  I should be defrosting my kitchen freezer (upright).  It would be a perfect time since it’s below freezing in the summer kitchen so it makes food storage easy.  But I don’t know if I’m going to get it done.  I want to try a new chicken soup recipe to can.  That’s where the extra chicken will go.

Monday:

grilled cheese

leftover honey garlic chicken wings (from Saturday)

Tuesday:

macaroni & cheese

honey mustard chicken (new recipe) and crockpot mashed potatoes

Wednesday:

pizza

leftover chicken wings

Thursday:

hot dogs

spaghetti and meatballs

Friday:

tuna sandwiches

honey pork chops

Saturday:

beef barley soup (need to get to the butcher shop first)

Sunday:

chicken Continental (new recipe from my Make a Mix book)

Had a wonderful Gaudete (Joy) Sunday at church this week.  The Sunday School kids did their pageant this week.  Ella was a great narrator.  Nice and clear!  I tried to get some pictures, but my darn Ventolin has me shaking too much to take pictures with my phone.

Baking is high on my ‘to do’ list this week.  I’ve got  batch of speculatius cookies made and a batch of sugar cookie dough in the freezer waiting.  I think I’ll get started on some shortbread today, they taste better if they get a chance to ‘age’.

You’ll probably note that there is no leftover chicken in this week’s menu.  That’s because I forgot to get the chicken out in time.  Instead I cooked up the ham that was languishing in the freezer.  I had to do it over two days (since I would be away a lot of Sunday) and the smell of cooking smoked ham was driving Colin crazy.  I think he literally said ‘mmm’ with every forkful.

Monday:

grilled cheese

leftover ham and scalloped potatoes

Tuesday:

tomato soup

hamburger casserole (new crock pot recipe)

Wednesday:

oatmeal pancakes

leftover ham

Thursday:

chicken vegetable soup

leftover casserole

Friday:

wieners & beans

chicken Parmesan

Saturday:

bacon & eggs

French fries

Sunday:

boeuf Bourguignon

Today is the anniversary of losing Isobel.  Hard to believe she’s been gone 4 years now.  Miss you Mom.
