Hello, everyone!  We got some much needed rain today.  It was over rather quickly, but my plants really enjoyed it.  I was able to work in the garden this afternoon.  I thought I would do just a small bit, but was feeling pretty good for a change and got quite a bit done.  It looks so nice.  I am very happy with it and can't wait to show it to you tomorrow.  The marigolds did not do well, but the tomato plants have doubled in size.

Joe and I wanted to get out of the house, so we went to McDonald's for lunch.  There is still no inside seating, so we sat in a long drive-through line.  I thought it would be shorter when we went at 2:30 p.m. but not so.  It was OK because we had no other plans.

I am doing well with cleaning things up.  One task that a lot of people mentioned on the support group was cleaning up your email.  Boy do I need that!  I have thousands of emails I haven't even opened!  As I was looking through it, I found lots of photos of meals that I haven't shown you.  So I thought I would do that tonight.  Here goes.  I must warn you that they are old ones.

On St. Patrick's Day (I told you they were old) I had ham, boiled potatoes, and green beans and carrots.

March 27th I served breaded flounder filets, fries, and a salad.

On to April.  This is from the 5th.  There is a baked chicken thigh, broccoli, and I made some corn bread.

The 10th I had poached salmon, mashed potatoes, and fried zucchini and mushrooms.

The next night I made pierogies and onions.

And on the 12th there was roast pork loin, mashed potatoes and I made a salad.

In May I made vegetable soup that turned out really good.  It's so hot now that I can't even think about making or eating soup.

And then I had baked salmon, zucchini and mushrooms, and corn on the cob.  That corn was the white and yellow kind and so good and sweet.

I haven't taken pictures of my meals in a long time.  It got to be a problem making us wait until I got my camera, set it up so there was enough light, etc.  So much easier to just sit down and eat.  I am trying to figure out what I want to do now, so stay tuned.

And now I have to get going and get to bed so that I can get up for church tomorrow.  I hope you all have a great Sunday.

Until later....



  1. Would love to see more of your meals. They look delicious!

  2. Thank you for your blog Kathy. It will be nice to see your tomatoes when ripe and even nicer for you and Joe to eat them! Have a great Sunday!

  3. The dinners still look good even if the recipes are older.Glad you were able to get out in your garden! can't wait to see those photos.Enjoy your day!

  4. Enjoyed seeing your meals - they all look so good. Will look forward to seeing the tomatoes, etc when they are ready. Have a blessed Sunday.

  5. Hello again, Kathy. I have been trying to do better with my email too. It is kind of daunting job. I love these meals. I can tell you are a good cook and you always give me great meal ideas! Have a good Sunday!

  6. You have wonderful variety with your meals. Wish I did, but I stick with a much narrower menu because it is simple and easy. Glad that you have been feeling better. It's always good to feel like doing things.

  7. My favorite foods are "salmon, mashed potatoes, and fried zucchini and mushrooms"...yummy.

    Have a great day

  8. What a great choice of food Kathy. I will have the chicken, broccoli and cornbread. During this lockdown I have not been able to get broccoli would you believe it? We couldn't go to the supermarkets so I would ask them for delivery. But they never brought broccoli, it's very difficult to get it here.

  9. We usually grill in the evenings but with the roofers here until late, we've had to figure out some different meals. You take such good photos of your yummy food! Hugs!

  10. After a rain is the best time to do weeding. They come up so nicely.Glad to hear you are feeling well. That makes me happy.

  11. Yummy meals. I love salmon and we have it occasionally. Mashed potatoes is a big hit here, always! And several love steamed broccoli, including Noah, so it is often an option. Hope you are having a great Tuesday... keep cool!
