Hello my dear readers! Thank you for dropping in for a visit. The sun is shining, my heart is happy, the future looks bright and all is well in the world. :-) I finished 2 more rows of color on my Meadow blanket that I'm doing with Lucy at Attic24 blog. 3 more colors before I have used all 15 colors, then I will repeat the pattern. I must say I'm enjoying the color play in this. Lucy designed 2 colorways, random stripe and a "color story" which has the colors of looking at the meadow with more greens at the bottom and going to blues at the top. She also shows us a "color sample" where she melds the colors which is my choice, I'm on "team color sample repeat". The colors I will do over the weekend are Cloud Blue, Lavender and Wisteria. :-)
Dayle got his Covid vaccine yesterday at the Veterans Administration facility in Vancouver, Washington. I am happy he got it but I have to wait until February 28th. Wah. On his way home he stopped at the "Candy Basket" and picked up a few goodies. They make their own chocolate in a factory there. :-)
He also brought me some chocolate covered peanuts. Peanuts are healthy, right? :-) I put them in one of my jadeite refrigerator containers.
These are yummy.
Dayle made a family favorite recipe - it's called "Cocktail Meatballs" but we call them "Sweet & Sour Meatballs". We serve them over rice and put crushed pineapple on top. Mmmmm.
1 lb ground beef
2 TBS bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C chopped green pepper
1/2 C chopped onion
2 TBS butter
1 can tomato soup
2 TBS brown sugar
4 tsp Worcestershire
1 TBS mustard
1 TBS vinegar
Optional - serve with crushed pineapple on top over rice
Mix ground beef, crumbs, egg and salt. Make about 50 small meatballs, brown in frying pan or under broiler, turning to brown on all sides. Saute pepper and onion in butter until tender, stir in rest of ingredients. Put meatballs in shallow baking pan, cover with sauce. Bake 20 minutes at 350°.
Introducing my newest jadeite plate, it's a Fire King "Sheaves of Wheat" design which is as rare as hen's teeth to find. If you're an antique shopper and ever see one of these, please let me know! They also have bowls, tea cups and saucers in this design. My grandparents were wheat farmers in Oklahoma so this speaks to me.
My newest "babies".
This is a Fire King Restaurant Ware 5 compartment grill plate. This is good for people who like to keep their food from touching.. LOL!
And these fun fired on green salt and peppers.
Chef Dayle prepared baked pork chops using Shake N Bake, fried potatoes with onions and buttered corn for dinner. Mmm.
l am going to work on getting my Valentine tablecloth on this weekend. I look forward to getting out my cute little heart things. Now is a perfect time for love and hearts, don't you think?
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
