"Another snowy Sunday!"

Woke up this morning to more snow but at least it was feeling a little warmer - it's pretty sad when you think 19 degrees is warm. Anyway I decide it was a good day for "comfort" food so
after a trip to the market I made cabbage soup - it is by far our favorite winter soup. I also had found a recipe for apple crisp using Idahoan Butter & Herb instant mashed potatoes...........I know strange but I had to try it! Poster will be my guinea pig! He'll eat it & I'll let you know later!

We decide this afternoon to take Liza to her favorite park for a walk - with it being so cold she hasn't been out for too many walks & the street were all salt again. It was hard work walking through the snow but she had a ball!

PS. Recipe for soup:

(1) medium cabbage shredded

(1) - large onion chopped

(3) - 14-1/2oz cans chicken broth

(3) – tblsp sugar

salt & pepper to taste

(1) – bay leaf

(2) – tblsp worcestershire sauce

(1)lb. ground beef or ground turkey

(2) 6oz cans tomato paste

1-1/4 tsp allspice

(2) 14oz cans baked beans

Brown meat and onion together in large (6-quart) pot. Add all other ingredients except for tomato paste and baked beans. Stir well, bring to boil and simmer for (1) hour until cabbage is cooked. Add tomato paste and baked beans and simmer for approximately another 1//2 hour.


  1. Only mother would think cabbage soap is comfort food.

    I say bring on a humongo bowl of ice cream. I'm sure my popster would agree!!!!!!!!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
