Bunnies In Stitches

Wow, would you look at that speeding calendar!!

March 14…..Daylight Savings Time begins

March 17…..St. Paddy’s Day

March 20…..First Day of Spring


April 4…..Easter!!!!!

Is it just me or is time getting away?

Starting to pull out spring/Easter decor. First out were the bunnies in stitches:


Today’s task will be to dig through boxes for more.

Here’s a wonderful recipe for brussels sprouts for people who don’t like brussels sprouts—even DH liked this one!


Of course, as he would say, “Everything’s better with bacon in it!”

5 pieces bacon, cut up and fried. Drain on paper towels and reserve drippings in the skillet.

1 pound brussels sprouts (cut in half) Saute the sprouts in the hot bacon grease, till crisp—about 3 minutes. Add 1 cup chicken broth and cook till broth boils. Cover and cook 5 minutes more. Uncover and cook till broth is gone, then add 1/2 cup cream. Stir till cream covers sprouts on medium heat. Remove from heat and mix in 1 t. black pepper and the bacon. Mmmmmm…mmmm!
