Comfort Food for Lunch with Transferware




           Happy Weekend!


             I have been trying to eat healthier lately
                   and with three of our children are on vegan
              diets they are making me focus more on
           what we are eating.
           I am not planning on going vegan but just
             adding more veggies and beans and no
      red meat to see how that works for us.




So,for lunch today it is one of my
favorite soups ~ cream of carrot using
almond milk.


I love these old brown and cream
     soup bowls as well as the really old
transferware soup tureen.

Soup and apricot nectar.


I made Golden Party Loaves that have
grated carrots,apricot nectar and yogurt
in it, making a nice moist healthy loaf.



A large teapot full of tea to
linger over lunch.


In case you are wondering where I keep these
transferware dishes this is the main cupboard
full.


    This old cupboard got painted last winter
with a grey/brown mistint. It was cream
before that but I prefer this color on it.

                   Grab a cup of tea


    And since I do have a sweet tooth I
        like to have something sweeter to end
           the meal. Coconut yogurt,strawberries
and granola hit the spot!


                     We have a basketball game to go to
                 shortly as our grandsons team is
                    in the semi finals. Tonight we go
                        to another grandson's hockey game.
                          It doesn't seem long since it was our
                         children's games we were going to....
                            so how did that happen so quickly????

                              Anyway, I hope you have a fun weekend!

Pretty Pinks




 Hello everyone,

I hope your week is going well.

 I am starting to think it is time to
      begin some spring cleaning projects
      around here as the weather has been
       mild and there will be lots of garden
       chores to do when spring really hits.
                   Lately, I have been enjoying my camera 
           and it seems my teacups have been my
best subject .

                                                          much as I do!
