A Much Better Day
"What a beautiful day it was ... is it not beautiful?"
"Today I had to get some baking done for tomorrow. One of our favourites that brighten up a plate, and the fact how good they taste, are these Lemon Bars of my Aunties. I usually use bottled Lemon Juice, but happened to have some "fresh" Lemons on hand so I used "fresh" juice and zest instead."
Never mind looking light and bright on a Christmas tray, these Lemon Bars would go over any time of the Year .... "yummy", who doesn't LOVE Lemon ??? never mind how Easy Peasy as 1-2-3 they are to make !
"I had almost thrown the Lemon peel into the compost bucket then caught myself ... into the Swan on top of the Woodstove it went. Fresh Lemon smell as it simmers away."
I had made plans with my friend, Jessica, a week or so ago to meet up for a cuppa tea together. She was driving up to Wiarton this afternoon where we were meeting up at ....
"The Berford Street Tea Room on Wiarton's Main Street. Not only do they serve up a variety of Teas, Light Lunches and a select variety of goodies can also be had ... all Homemade of course."
"Here Jessica and I in at the Tea Room. What was Cookie Monster doing there with Jessica, you might ask? Ha ... my Grandboys have outgrown him, so he is off to live at Jessica's house with her 2 Year old son, Zachery. The photo of the Tea Cup? I loved it as it is so pretty, but not quite as pretty as Jessica is."
After we had our time together, Jessica headed out while I stopped off at the Post Office to mail off our Christmas Cards. That was another "check" off my List in my head.
While I was downtown Wiarton I could not help but admire the store front of Home Designs ....
"Lovely is it not? located on Berford Street (Main Street). If my memory serves me correctly, I believe they are open every Wednesday to Saturday."
By the time I returned home, it was time for me to get our Dinner prepared as my "Crabby Cabbie" was going to be coming home this evening with me ! Hooray !!!!
I had taken some Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast out to defrost this morning, so What's For Dinner ?
"Tonight it was Knorr's Chicken with White Wine & Cream Sauce."
"Served along with a side of Long Grain White Rice."
"It is not only a "keeper" to be added to my every growing Recipe Collection, it was also very Easy Peasy as 1-2-3 to make."
Recipe please? Knorr What's For Dinner? *Click* HERE.
I must admit I did not make the rice, as if I had it would have been "sticky" and/or "lumpy", not "light" and "fluffy" as it was. Trust me my dear Rob
gloated bragged about how wonderful the rice he makes is, and I heard all about it a few times tonight, as anyone who knows him can well imagine. Ha !
I had myself "a much better day" today, as I had NO date with Mr. Insomnia last night and the Fibromyalgia flareup has seemed to subside for the time being, returning to its dull and constant state once again for the time being.
I am looking forward to tomorrow, also looking forward to hopefully having yet another good night of sleep, as my usually waking time of 5:30 am comes early, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
