I love this sweet antique angel statue. It's in our side garden right next to our lilac bush.Mr OP bought it for me for my birthday a few years ago. You can see that we still have a few inches of snow left from the past couple of storms. It was starting to melt, last week, but then the temps dropped and now we're getting hit with another storm. Right now we're getting freezing rain, but it's supposed to turn to snow by 11pm. They actually changed their predictions and say that the cold air is moving farther south so we'll get less than they originally thought.
I made a ham, homemade scalloped potatoes, deviled eggs and garlic string beans for supper tonight. I don't like to toot my own horn, but it was soo good. The house smelled like Easter this afternoon, plus having the oven on made for added warmth.
We didn't do too much this weekend. My mum and Dad stopped by after church, my fibro was acting up so they didn't stay too long. I sent them home with a plateful of cupcakes that I made yesterday. Dad was a happy camper, he loves these (link to the recipe) cupcakes. I made chocolate butter cream icing (Mr OP's favorite), but I usually make my Dad and Flyboy peanut butter icing. Our Fireman isn't a big cake eater, if he wanted a cake for his birthday I made a poor man's cake, however most times he asked for a big bowl of chocolate mousse.
If we have work tomorrow, then I'm taking a plateful of the cupcakes to share with everyone. They certainly won't go to waste. If we close because of the snow, then I'm going to make oatmeal raisin cookies. I made a flavorful stock today for chicken noodle soup to have for supper tomorrow. It's cooling on the stove top now. I'll have to store it in the downstairs fridge, the fridge in the kitchen is jam packed.
I hope that if you are in the path of this monster storm that you are safe and warm. Have a wonderful week!
