Happy Homemaker Monday - April 7, 2014

As I look outside my window...
Lovely!  The snow is starting to melt, highs of 17C today with sun and blue skies.  I can see the geese flying in the sky.  Snow is due again this weekend though.  

Right now I am...
Typing up this post and enjoying my morning snack.  

About this blog and improvements I want to make to it over the next few months.

  1. Your menu always looks so yummy, especially that gammon steak. YUM!

    1. Thanks Sandra! I have a rotation of our favourite meals and then add in seasonal or new recipes to try. It seems to work well for us.
