Thanks to those that have nominated me for awards and tags. But I have a hard time trying to figure out who to give them to and then sometimes i forget to do it. I do not want to hurt anyones feelings. So for now please do not nominate me and give it to someone that deserves it more. Thank you so much for understanding.
Looking at another rainy, cloudy day here in Maryland. We had like 4 beautiful hot days in a row and now they are calling for rain and cool temps for a while. But i guess we need it.
I was looking through a cookbook the other day and came across this recipe for Nettle Pie. I didn't know you could eat nettles. I remember when i was younger and found out what they were all about. Not a good thing. I walked into a bush of those with shorts on. My legs started burning and i didn't know what happened. That is about all i remember of those. So here is the recipe for it:
1/2 paper grocery bag of young nettles 3 Tablespoons of butter 2 Tablespoons of chopped onions 2 cloves of garlic chopped 2 Tablespoons of flower 1 Cup Milk Bay leaf 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese 2 eggs 2/3 cup flour 1/3 cup milk 1/3 cup water 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
Wearing rubber gloves, remove central stem from nettles. Steam until tender, then place in a large greased casserole dish. In a frying pan, melt butter, add onion and garlic and cook until limp. Mix in flour. Add mild and bay leaf and cook. stirring, until thickened. Pour this mixture over the nettles. Spread grated cheese over nettles and sauce. Beat remaining ingredients together for 2 min. and pour over the cheese. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 400 for 20 min. Serves 6
Hope you enjoy this recipe Have a wonderful prim day
Turned the heat off last yesterday and had the bedroom window open last night. When i got up this morning it was 64 degrees in here. Had to shut the window and turn the heat on. But later today its suppose to warm up into the 70's so i can turn the heat back off and open the windows.
My grandson's team won there first game last night. They won 7-4. My grandson is 8 and loves ball. But let me tell you it was cold and the wind was blowing. I had sweats and a sweatshirt on and was still cold. Hubby walked up to the concession stand and got us something to eat and when he got back the food was cold. LOL Don;t know how those little kids did it with short sleeves on. Burrrrrr...Guess i'm just getting old.
Don't forget to check out the giveways on my sidebar and Aunt Mannys had added another gift. The more that come to her blog she is adding more to it.
Well the weather will be nice today and i've got tons to do around here so i guess i'd better get off for now.
We have been getting alot of rain lately and cooler than normal temps. But the old weather man is callin for some beautiful weather starting on thursday. No rain and warmer temps through next tuesday.
Going to my grandsons baseball game Thursday night. He loves to play ball. He's a lefty when it comes to sports but writes with his right hand. LOL I'm going to have to take the camera with me and get some nice pictures.
I guess spring is coming. Finally. Took my doggie to the groomers yesterday and she had this mole on her neck. When we went to pick her up they said that her collar must of rubbed it off. Her neck was bleeding alittle and the mole was gone. I don't know if they cut it off while shaving her or not. Her hair was getting long and we had it cut really short. It looks pretty good today. Well it's getting late so i guess i'll be signing off here soon. Think i'll do some blog reading and then off to bed.
Sure hope everyone is going to be getting some beautiful weather coming your way.

My dinning room is paneling. Don't want to put up drywall so thought i could paint over it. I want to add a chair rail. I want to paint the top off white and not sure about the bottom. Does anyone know what i will have to do to paint over the paneling. Has anyone done that. It is just so dark in that room. I love looking at others Prim rooms and would love to make mine like that. So any help would surely be appreciated. Hopefully work on it this summer.
I have been getting the Country Sampler magazine and falling in love with everything in the magazines. So many things that i would love to have. Would love my house to look like that. LOL
The sun is shinning today and it's supposed to get up to 65. Spring is here today...Well it's almost time to get the scooters out. Hubby and i love riding these. Saves on gas..So thought i'd show some pics. This pic is my grandson and my hubby...Just kidding LOL The scarecrow my grandson and hubby made at the octoberfest here last year. The scarecrow is sitting on my scooter and my grandson on my hubbys scooter.
They are so much fun to ride. You really have to watch others though. They go up to 40mph. These are only 50cc. There are so many people riding them now. They do have one's that go faster that you can even ride on the highways. We get around 80miles to the gallon.
So come on warm weather. I'm ready to ride. Well hope everyone has a wonderful nice day.
