Spring is slowly coming to StoneGable! And my menus will start to reflect all the great spring seasonal foods now available! I'm loading up on asparagus, artichokes, and salads... as well as tomatoes and basil!
Because we are big carnivores here at StoneGable, I won't be forgetting lots of great main dish recipes, too!
If you make one thing from this week's menu try OVEN BBQ RIBS. The are sooooo delicious and ridiculously easy to make! It's all about the MAGIC BBQ RUB. You won't be disappointed!
This is what the whole downstairs of my house looked like this weekend.
It sorta reminded me of when my kids were little and I was sick in bed with the flu and Daddy was watching them. I just knew mayhem would sneek in the back door while I was too sick to care! I knew that mayhem would be downstairs making my house look like a tornado had ripped through it, disheveling my children so much that I could hardly recognize them with peanut butter in their hair and mismatched shoes and big grinning chocolate covered mouths!
This weekend mayhem revisited StoneGable!
It did not start with the flu this time... but a trip to the jewelry store...
I make onion skin dyed Easter eggs each spring. This tradition has gone back generations and generations in my family.
Onion skin dyed eggs so easy and even more satisfying to make. A basket of these almost magical eggs are a real treasure! Deep oranges, warm browns, soft terracotta. Not your typical Easter colors. But once you see them you will understand!
I hope you will make these beautiful, earthy harbingers of Easter and start your own tradition...
