Yesterday and today it snowed! It sure feels like the holiday season is here now
Today we are making Christmas gifts! Can’t show you what we are making because I don’t want to ruin the surprise! How many of you are making your presents this year? I think it is great when you share home made foods with family and friends. They know how hard you worked to make the gifts and really appreciate the from the heart presents! Our presents all take time to make, a few days to be exact. They will be worth the wait I can assure you that!

It is true, winter is here! Some of us love it, some of us hate it, but most of us love to look at our backyards, parks, and cities covered in that flaked white stuff otherwise known as snow! If you want to share your photo on my blog of the snow in your area please send your photos to email@example.com and I would love to post them! Have a wonderful winter everyone and remember to be cautious on the roads if you have to go out!
Yesterday we were busy in the kitchen! It is super cold now and that means a cold kitchen! Lucky we have a space heater to keep the living room warm. So Morgyn made Cran Rolls yesterday and they were delicious! She has mastered making breads now and they taste better than store bought bread! These rolls were sweet tasting..so good! I am so proud of her! With the steaks made from the Outside Round we bought the other day we made some awesome steak sandwiches with Aus Jus and Wasabi Mayo for the sauce! It was a great meal!
It’s been pretty cold out these last few days and yesterday we had some snow flurries! Don’t panic nothing stuck on the ground, this time anyhow. Last night I was fast asleep and I heard a bunch of banging outside. I got up and looked out our window to find the Gazebo roof had collapsed into itself on our deck! What a bad wind storm we had last nite! Our poor Gazebo, I guess we should have taken the roof down so that didn’t happen but we rarely get storms as bad as this! Our front driveway has a lot of fallen branches from the trees on our yard as well. What a mess! It seems like our heater is about to bite the dust as well, the fan doesn’t sound very promising. Hopefully we can find a better one for this winter season, one that heats up the room better. We just have a small space heater that is about 20 years old. Looks like the sun is shining upon us today, but it is still super windy out. A good day to stay inside and drink hot drinks! We had perogies for lunch the other day as well, they were simple but delicious! Here are the photos..

Last nite Morgyn made a special meal for us! She braised some of the previously cut steaks from the Outside Round that we bought at the store. Then she added tomato paste, chicken stock (home made of course), and some carrots into a pan and popped the pan into the oven for 3 hours! After we took it out the steaks were fall apart and so delicious! For something a little extra we added some Mint Jelly on the side for dipping our steaks into. Wow what a delicious meal
Last nite we had the best Pizza Bread ever! We bought a big chunk of Outside Round at the supermarket last time we went and when we got home we sliced it up, put aside a plate of it for our pizza bread, and bagged up the rest for stew, Pho, and stir fry’s. It was really good meat, especially on the Pizza Bread! We also added some pickled spicy peppers, mushrooms, onion and a whack of Mozza Cheese..Here are the photos!
