So tonight the Farmhouse family is all tucked inside doing what we do best and staying away from that -15 temp, and thats without the wind - brrrrrrrr.
Ms. Cami is all snuggled into her bed with her little doxie friend and covered up toasty with her 2 blankets - you can only see the one, but she has another one underneath affectionatly called "pinky" cuz you guessed it - it's pink lol.
Mr Farmhouse got a blazing fire going and I'm doing what I like best
sitting in front of it and stitching away. This block is from the Heart to Hand BOM from Primitive Gatherings that I have started to work on again. A WIP is a good thing. What a wonderful way to spend an evening enjoying the fire with the Mister and Ms. Cami.
Tuesday a few of the woolies were able to get out of their houses after the snowfall we had on Monday night and meet up for a monthly woolie meeting and it was at Kari's. We had a beautiful sighting of a cardinal who popped in to say hello while we were visiting
there's something so beautiful about that bright red against the white back drop of the day. This picture is for you Faye.
Ms. Penny had an adorable quilt to share with us - she made this up with scraps
she did an A B C and a 1 2 3 on it plus lots of little special quilting fun on the quilt. She is planning on donating it to our local quilt show this spring for the silent auction. Great job Penny - you do such beautiful quilting and I know I will be adding my bid to the list. Thanks for a fun afternoon Kari. We missed the rest of the woolies that couldn't make it. There's always next month.
So how about a little comfort food for a very cold day. Again it's not a pretty picture - but it's good and very easy. One of those you can pop in the oven or even the crockpot and forget about it until your ready to eat.
Beef Over Noodles
- 1 pound of stew meat
- 1 can of French Onion Soup - the liquid stuff not the dry stuff
- 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1 can of button mushrooms or sliced mushrooms
- Cooked Wide Egg Noodles - we use the wheat ones and they are good
Mix the soups together until blended in a casserole dish - stir in the mushrooms and the beef. Cover and cook 5-6 hours in a 250 oven. Sometimes it needs a little thickening of cornstarch and water and sometimes it doesn't. Tonight was one of those times it did - but my meat went into the mixture a little bit frozen so maybe that's why. Anyway serve it over the cooked noodles - YUMMMMMM.
So give that recipe a try and see what you think - oh gosh it makes the house smell so good when it's cooking. I usually serve it with a salad and garlic toast - but no toast in the house tonight. This weekend I'm trying a new recipe - so check back and I will share it with you. We've got a quiet few days still ahead of us. Mr. Farmhouse I think is finally on the mend - he ended up with a third medication on Monday that seemed to have made the difference. We have a super bowl party to go to on Sunday - other than that it's stay warm inside and get him well before the wee one arrives - any day now :).
Until next time
