Beautiful early spring (late winter?) snow drops dancing in the sunlight.
I've spent the last four days perpetually blowing my nose and popping tylenol. There hasn't been a lot to show from me. Here is what I did manage:
A bald eagle in flight.
Nasi made with calrose rice is the best.
Waffles with buttermilk syrup...don't ask me how I managed this one.
Lots and lots of tea.
Just as I was about to go stir crazy I decided to make the folks at my local thrift store sick. I found these beautiful mugs and bought two. When I got home I looked them up online and found them selling for $8 each (at the cheapest price!) So I ran back to the store and bought the remaining three. Only $2.50 each! They are beautiful, I really do love them. They are the "les bandes platinees" pattern from Fitz and Floyd discontinued in 1997.
I also found this brand new-never been used Trudeau fondue set for $7. We'd been wanting one for a while but not wanting to spend the $40+ for a new set. See our makeshift fondue pot here.
Lastly I managed these Dream Bars. They are awesome. Super awesome! Crunchy, nutty, sweet. (not that I could taste them) Walnuts and coconut and brown sugar! Heaven! (According to my husband who claims not to have a sweet tooth but has eaten half the pan in 16 hours.) Make them!
