Spring on the Mountain Top

I cannot believe how long it's been since I posted on here....thank you to all my sweet readers who reached out to make sure Sweetie and I were alright. 

We're fine, thank God, just laying low and staying home, like the rest of the nation. I pray you are all doing well also, and not going stir crazy at this point.

Hanging In There

What a time this has been for us all - who would have thought a month ago that this odd virus floating around could become a national pandemic? 

Even our remote little mountain top has been affected, with businesses closed from one end of Main Street to the other, and 5 confirmed cases in the area. Scary times, for sure.

Signs of Spring

Yesterday was a glorious day on the mountain top! The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and best of all......are you ready?? 

Drumroll please.....

Ten Incredible Books

Life lately has been work, work, and more work. Sigh. 

But in between I have managed to read some really good books!!

Spring Has Sprung!

Well...not really, although it is a weirdly warm day today on the mountain top!! 

BUT gardening season has officially begun in my house, and I'm filled with a renewed sense of excitement!

Curried Sweet Potato, Carrot, and Apple Soup

Boy have I got a recipe for you today!! 

This one came courtesy of some leftover baked sweet potatoes and glazed carrots that needed to be used up. 

And of course, the ever-present quarts of home made chicken broth in my fridge.

My 2020 Seed Order

I finally got around to doing a seed inventory, and it doesn't appear that I need to order any veggie seeds at all - I'm well stocked! 

However, recently Park Seed had a 10 for $10 sale, where select seed packets were on sale for just $1 each! 

You know I couldn't let that one go by, don't you?

Cozying Up For Winter

It's been brutally cold on the mountain top lately....yesterday I'm pretty sure my contact lenses froze to my eyeballs the second I stepped out the door. 

Those of you in warmer states probably don't understand, but we do get used to the frigid winters....and we learn to embrace winter on the mountain top.

Perfect Potato Leek Soup

'Tis the season on the mountain top for snow....and soup. Lots and lots of steaming bowls of soup, to warm a soul from the inside out. 

Recently, my little mountain top market had some gorgeous leeks on sale, which I snatched up in a hurry, intent on making one of my all time favorite soups....Potato Leek.

Spring On My Mind

You know it's wayyyyyy too early for me to be even thinking of spring, don't you? 

After all, I haven't even taken down my Christmas tree yet! 

And let's face it, the mountain top doesn't really see spring until well into April.

Meatloaf, Mastered

I have always loved a good meatloaf. Growing up, it was one of the meals my mom made so well, and I loved when it was on the menu. 

Pork chops? Not so much. Dad liked them very well done, and it was like trying to chew the sole off the bottom of my shoe. 

But meatloaf? That was a treat!
