The Gift of Time

Gently falling snow
Today I was given a beautiful gift. The gift of time.  For many of us our daily calendars fill up with running from place to place. From task to task.  UP and out of the house early, in and out of the car, home again and then off to a meeting or the grocery store!

So when a winter storm blows through sending rain, ice, and snow into middle Tennessee, those of us who can stay home  are wise to do so.  One man’s storm is another’s gift.  Icy roads have me grounded today and I am so thankful.  I am truly sorry for those who must go out and drive in the ice, slush and snow.  I am sorry for the hostesses who planned our garden club meeting for this morning. But for me, I am happy, happy, happy!

After a lovely devotional time this morning, which I shared with my husband, I set off to the kitchen.  There is nothing like warming up the house with something lovin’ coming from the oven! But wait there’s more! Click to continue reading

A Hearty and Healthy Brunswick Stew

Brunswick County, Virginia, and the town of Brunswick, Georgia, both claim to be the origin of Brunswick Stew.  I had never heard of Brunswick Stew  until a few years ago (and every winter since then) I heard my friend Joan say, “I made up a big pot of Brunswick Stew!”

A plaque on an old iron pot in Brunswick, Georgia, says the first Brunswick stew was made in it on July 2, 1898, on nearby St. Simons Island.  A competing story claims a Virginia state legislator’s chef invented the recipe in 1828 on a hunting expedition.  Some say it originated in Germany and since Joan’s husband is of German decent, I’m going with that!  But then Joan is from Georgia … oh well, whoever, wherever Brunswick Stew came from I can tell you this – it is a hearty meal and fabulously delicious.

Easy (and Delicious) Homemade Chicken and Noodles

Chicken and Noodles Served Over Mashed Potatoes

Growing up in Nebraska,  chicken and noodles was a favorite meal of mine.  My sous-chef dish-washing would buy a “whole chicken in a can”.  At that time, there was no such thing as fresh deli rotisserie chicken, like we can buy now in most grocery stores, Sam’s or Costco.

I remember when mom would open up that can and dump out the gelatinous goop of meat and bones.  She would painstakingly pick the bones clean placing the meat in a pot of boiling water that would become a thick, beautiful, fragrant start to her chicken and noodles.
