I love this time of year. I am in love with this time of year.
It's been warm here lately which has helped many of my seedlings to get their start for the season. Sharing the photos brightens my day for sure, as well as sharing a recipe that always makes me warm inside. I know, I'm such a sucker for nostalgia.
Hello onion bulbs! Welcome to spring!
Beautiful carrot sprouts!
My bestest gave me a wonderful tea seed/leaf growing set and I finally felt it was warm enough to seed them. If you look in the left hand corner, that fuzzy green thing is a sprout!
Atlast my Rhododendron is budding! I've never seen it bloom before and for some reason I thought the flowers would be pink! This color looks magnificent. There are tons of Rhododendrons around here that have already bloomed and I was beginning to think mine never would!
Right, now for an awesome carbohydrate filled recipe. This is my mum's recipe for scalloped potatoes. I've had lots of variations of this recipe but hers is my favorite. It's comfort food, filling and delicious.
- Potatoes (I used around 6 small-medium ones)
- Can of cream of mushroom soup (cream of celery would work well too)
- Grated cheese
Look at that lump of paprika! Mmmm I want that piece.
