A New Year

I was visiting blogs the other morning and stopped in to see Snap at Tales from Twisty Lane. She had this framed and featured. The more I thought about it the more I liked it. I tried to google but could not find anything even resembling what she had so I went to Word and created/copied this idea. There are some wonderful, funky fonts to download at dafont. Thank you Snap and to the person who created this. It says it all!

I think I shall keep this frame filled with seasonal thoughts. This looks nice on the Welsh cupboard and will greet guests as they come into the house.

Santa brought me a Food Saver. Jack and I cooked all week. The freezer is full of some wonderful meals for the next month. We had ham for Christmas dinner at our friends' house. Nothing would do but for us to cook a ham. We made pea soup in the slow cooker.

We ate it before I remembered to take a picture. I served this with Anadama Bread made in the bread machine. House smelled wonderful all day.

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends. I wish you all the best for the coming year.

Happy New Year Carol & Jack. Great words on the board, I am glad you shared them with us. Also the meal looks very tasty!!! I have never heard of the bread you baked but I have looked it up in Google, I love how the name came about, I also see it is from New England, I wonder if it is available here, it looks delicious, I could eat a slice now with either Philadelphia cheese or jam.
I also had to look up a "Foodsaver" I believe it is a vacuum sealer, is that right?

Love to you both, Jackie in Surrey.x

Happy New Year Carol. I love a good pea soup. I have never made one in the crock pot. I will certainly try it next time. It will save me so much time.

Happy New Year Carol & Jack and thank you so much for the ecard, it is delightful.
Your pea & ham soup looks great, perfect for a wet winter's day in Normandy.
Care to ship some over??

Don't you just love it when the house is filled with all the scents of good food being created? I sure do!

Ohhhh, that does look yummy! I don't even like pea soup, but perhaps I could change my mind.

I really like your message idea. It would work great for many different applications!

Happy New Year to you both!
