Weekend Sweets

Early morning errand and trees were still glistening with ice.
No trip to town in 5 days
and like to keep a well stocked pantry.
Also just needed to be around civilization
even though
I hurry back to the woods....

Lunch of tomato soup
and the only way to serve
is with Basil and Dill.  Tonight when I finish
I will add some Parsley, Chives and Cilantro
which the freeze did not destroy.
Also melted cheese on wonderful bread,
some black pepper chips
and the best olives that are marinated
in olive oil and spices.

Just finished making 2 simple deserts that
had not been made in a while.
Lime and Lemon Jello with an addition
of crushed pineapple, cottage cheese and sweetened condensed milk
in past have put an addition of nuts - but not this time.
Also chilling is a mixture of cream cheese, whipped cream, some confectionery sugar
and vanilla, poured over a few crushed Oreo cookie crumbs.
Will top this with my last carton of strawberries and some blueberries.
Doing this instead of the suggested canned pie filling.

Tomorrow will take my last small carton of frozen turkey from the holidays and make
chili with white beans, onion, carrot, celery, cumin and an addition of cilantro.

So set for food for this warmer weekend
and if it is not to muddy
I will venture outside....

You always thrill me with your meals. I remember the jello salad, my Mom made one with cherry jello. She also made jello about half chilled and added soft ice cream. Put in the freezer and later yum, yum.

I heart olives and cheese on good bread.

glad for your safe trip to town and back to Callie and home sweet home.

((hugs)) you are in my thoughts and prayers.

You do cook so well for yourself, I am glad for that and hope you can get out and about for a while.

Each dish, main or dessert, that you prepare always looks so invitingly delicious. I continue to take notes. I know you and Callie will be out enjoying the warmer days.
