Hi Everyone, I have been getting so many nice messages from you that I am feeling ashamed :)
I had every good intention to write regularly here starting the first of the year then.....I got the worst case of the flu I have ever had. It lasted nearly all month. I have never been so sick!. The Dr. said i must have had every strain that was available.......Anyway, I think I am about back to normal.
I did get some reading done while I was sick and 2 of my favorites were "THE SHOEMAKERS WIFE". It takes place in Italy (high on my bucket list) and has lots about food, and fashion. I LOVED it.......The other book was 'THE DRESSMAKER".. It was really GOOD ! So if you are snowed in or just want a good break, Check these out.
We have REALLY had the snow here in Salt Lake. The skiers love it and it sure is pretty outside (If you don`t have to go out :)
My freezer and pantry are still overflowing from the holidays and since i have been sick, I haven`t done much cooking. I do have some fun ideas floating around in my mind so I`ll be in touch again soon.
For those of you that like "hot stuff", my son, who works for Heinz, tells me they now have their catsup out with Jalapenos ! Available at Target or Wal-mart. Give it a try !
I always try to do a project during the winter months and right now I`m trying to decide if I want to re furbish my downstaire family room. Can`t decide if I want a "library (craftsman) look or a white cottage wicker look. Help ! This is when it would be nice to have a companion to discuss with...
Well, guess I`d better quit and get ready. My daughter and husband are taking me out to a new Mexican resturant. My first "outing " of the year !
Stay well and warm everybody. I love you all.......Smile Always, Bev
