Gosh, it's been raining and raining and now it is foggy with more rain later. I'm quite pleased actually. All the snow will be gone and the gardens and plants will be primed nicely for the sun when it appears:) I'm hoping to take advantage of the gloomy day to get some cleaning done! A neverending task, but hopefully I can make some forays into new territory. You know, the stuff you always mean to get around to but get sidetracked by other stuff:)
That picture up above is the cover of my cookbook:) Yep. Chock full of recipes that I had floating around on bits of paper and my friend's and family's best potluck meals. All of them simple with easy ingredients. I put it together a few years ago and had a lot of fun. It is self published through Trafford Publishing. It sells here in a few gift stores. I have not marketed it all really, it was more of a labor of love. Something I had always wanted to do. I sell Nova Scotia Potluck also through my etsy store. Best to purchase it there because I have them in stock and Amazon has to order from the publisher. I even managed to squeeze in some art throughout the pages.
Here is one of the recipes. Sometimes I garnish it with flowers.
If you've made it all the way down to here, here's a fun wee slide show with sound celebrating fiddler John Afton Mclellan's 101 Birthday! 25 fiddlers played Happy Birthday to him. He greeted all two hundred guests by name, had a few dances and played a few tunes. He lives alone with his cat, Bow. Just click anywhere on this paragraph to see it:)
