I'll tell you about the boobies later.
The white lilacs from our yard are just beautiful again this year.
I cut two bunches for the house yesterday.
And the smell!!
I put the little bunch beside our bed so I could smell them all night.
I think I told y'all I planted two rhododendrons.
They are thriving! Yay!
They have lots of new growth and are both blooming.
I'm so happy about that.
I made the most fabulous quiche for supper a few nights ago...
Why don't I make quiche more often?
It's so easy and quick and always so good.
I started with a frozen, store-bought, deep-dish pie crust.
I filled it with chopped ham, onion, swiss cheese, a pinch of salt, and lots of black pepper...
Mixed 4 eggs and 1/2 cup of whole milk and poured that over.
Baked for 45 minutes at 375 F.
(The instructions said 25 minutes, but mine wasn't set until 45)
Just bake it until it's really brown on top and doesn't jiggle at all in the middle.
I'm tellin' you...it had the BEST flavor!
Remember my last post where I showed y'all the recipe for Southern Strawberry Punch Bowl Cake? Well, I made it last night for the poker game this evening...
I had fun making it and layering it up.
I didn't have a punch bowl so I used my largest clear bowl.
My trifle looked too small to hold it all, and it would have been.
Yummy...cake, strawberries, pudding, pineapple, bananas, whipped cream...
I smashed it down, but it still almost didn't all fit in.
But just look...
Is that fantastic or what??
I bet it's going to be good!
There's also a double batch of chili in the crockpot.
We're expecting twice the people we usually have.
All the snowbirds are back in town and will be here.
My dining room is all a mess because I'm still in the process of mopping. (Fletch is a big help, huh? Hee-hee. I just mop around the dogs. He's smart enough to stay up out of the way at least.) I'm taking a little break. I don't know why I always freak out and feel like I have to clean like a mad woman. People only come in to pee, and they don't have to walk through anything but the kitchen to get to the bathroom. You know they peek at the rest of my house though! Haha.
We got the porches ready yesterday.
See that water fountain in the middle of the big porch?
We're still in the process of getting it set up like we want it.
It used to be buried in the front of the house in the garden.
We never got to enjoy it there really so Ken moved it out back.
I'll show it to you when it's done.
Okay, so about that "Boobies" title.
Ken said I should put "boobies" in all the titles of my blog and I would get way more hits and visitors to my blog. LOL. He has no idea I'm really doing it. We'll see what happens. I'm not really going to do it on every post. It's an experiment. Calm down.
OMG, look at baby Eli.
This was right after his first bath and blow-dry.
