So far May has been a very busy month. I have not had a moment to upload pictures from my camera to get this post finished! I am down to the wire on Celia’s deadline to submit the IMK post. Sorry for the lateness of it Celia (Fig Jam and Lime Cordial) hope I made it.
The end of April brought a birthday party with a sprinkle cake.
Evie had her birthday party at the Humane Society and instead of presents asked that her friends bring a donation. Her friends, family members and a very generous friend all gave her donations. She received $220 which she handed over after the party as a donation for the animals. It was a good party, the children got to play with a lot of kitties, pet a curious little guinea pig and had a visit from a volunteer with a therapy dog.
My parents were visiting so we had some tea buns, also know as baking powder buns in Newfoundland.
A couple other items from Newfoundland
A box of my favourite tea
I am reading this cookbook and I love it. I haven’t made anything from it yet, but there is a lot that I would love to try.
I made this buttermilk pie and it was really good. It is an old southern recipe, from a southern grandma. I will have a post about that a little later. This pie is so good I have to share.
I was given a full box of Tunnock’s teacakes, box of 36, I love them.
We also had Steak and Guinness pasties from our local farmer’s market. These are Evie’s favourite.
And the biggest thing in my kitchen this month is……
NEW COUNTERTOP, sink and faucet! While my Dad was visiting he replaced the old worn dark brown that as here when we bought the house. Now it is bright and clean.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Mom’s (May 10th is Mother’s Day in Canada).
