This is our first daffodil to bloom! More will be opening. I have this in a bud vase on a little table next to my chair so I can enjoy it all day. It's a little one!
I pick it up and smell it often. Sweet Spring aroma.
More blooms soon!
I bought this little set at the Portland Women's Forum white elephant sale for $2. I think it will be fun to grow plants from seed.
This is our big bed of Snowdrops in the front entry walkway.
These should open up more today.
Dayle made one of his specialties while our grandsons were here for 2 nights. Sweet & Sour Meatballs. Yum yum YUM!!
2 lbs ground beef
4 (or more) TBS bread crumbs (Italian seasoned is what Dayle uses)
1 tsp salt
1 cup chopped green pepper (optional)
1 cup chopped onion
4 TBS butter
2 cans of Campbell’s condensed tomato soup
4 TBS brown sugar
8 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 TBS regular yellow mustard
2 TBS vinegar
2 small cans of crushed pineapple (mix in sauce or serve on the side)
Directions: Mix beef, crumbs, egg and salt together, roll into small meatballs (1 inch in diameter), brown in frying pan until cooked through, drain on paper towel.
Cook the green pepper and onion in butter until tender, stir in the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes, add the meatballs into the sauce and pour all into a shallow baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. While it is baking, cook 2 cups (raw) rice, and to serve the meatballs over the rice.
OK, I'm off to my Daughters of the American Revolution meeting. Have a super week!
