January Kitchen Notes

Cinnamon rolls with cream cheese icing, loaves of bread hot from the oven, soups simmering on the stove, and baked dishes radiating heat from the oven to cover the kitchen; glimpses from my kitchen!

Since I last wrote, we have been our regular flurry of activity. Kids home from school, college kid home for a few more days (sugar sweet:) and visiting with our grown and on their own. Grandbabies weaved in and out of all this busyness and shared meals at the table... these are a few of our favorite (and recent) things!

A quick additional list of what we've eaten and prepared since my last posts:

* Lauren's first homemade peach pie using purchased, rolled out crust with a lattice top.
* Egg sandwiches with a variety of breads, cheeses and seasonings and with fresh garlic rubbed on the pan seared bread slices.
* Spaghetti and garlic bread.
* Warm vanilla milk (a pot or cup at a time).
* Hot chocolate with cream and peppermint or cream and topped with cinnamon and nutmeg.
* Broccoli soup.

Goodness, there were so many things I had hoped to add but they have all scattered themselves into quiet corners. Recalling them might take some time so I will just scoot them out to you as I drag them out.

Hoping all is well in your kitchens and that the Lord's provisions are beautiful meals and nourishment to offer loved ones and any God sends your way!
