A Beauty, A Hit, Savory

1. Neighbor K. knocks on the front door to bring us a beautiful poinsettia. It's breathtaking red color fills the crock where a dull corner is now bright and merry.
2. The Slow Cooker Bacon Jam fills the house with a wonderful aroma. When Steve comes home from work, he makes a beeline for the kitchen and asks, "What's cooking?" He has a sample and asks, in a voice filled with hope, if it is for us to keep.
3. A busy day of baking ended with a pot of Vegetable Beef Barley Soup. It was a satisfying meal with plenty of mushrooms for me, but too many for her. I took her's : )


  1. I am making that bacon jam one day - maybe to take to my sis's for Christmas.
