Garden Green Pea Souffle

This turned out amazingly good!   At first i thought it was very basic as it has everything that was in the fridge and not really measured as I find that a difficult thing to do...but here goes and you may want to do some adjustments yourself.......

2 1/2 cups cooked fresh or frozen garden peas~ some will be blended and some you will save for decoration
1       cup of cooked red quinoa/cous cous ~ i used a mixture

In the blender--

2 extra large egg
about a quarter brick of medium tofu
one clove garlic
2 large tbsp chopped onion
oh! yes and a squeeze or two of lemon
a bit of dill
salt and pepper
about a quarter cup of pistachio

blend this and add some peas and blend again so that it has small chunks still, pour into quinoa mixture and then into  a buttered bowl ~ you can either bake this or i just put it in the microwave for three minutes because there was just me.
decorate with our favorite mayo, ginger, slice of strawberry and a sprig of dill with the rest of the peas around and anything else you would is good with salsa too

lacy cactus

I am so excited as i was wondering what to do for pink things today!!!!......I walked into my library where all my plants love to be, the sun shines just right and in their direction in the morning, and what do i see but a very beautiful white cactus  bloom with a very pink center!!!

Well spring is finally here -- snow has melted, swans have landed in the lake, geese and robins have been here for a while now, trees are beginning to bud and someone said the gooseberry bushes have green leaves!!!! which is a sure sign also.  Another good sign is the woodpecker which i heard last week.
Do we dare change our snow tires yet? or will the weather play a trick on us---hahah

the birds have been filling the air with song and it surely is a great sound......
happy pink saturday everyone.

Song of Solomon 2:12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;

What am I cooking today???.................... probably will make a green salad with fresh strawberries and pecans.    This looks pretty too.  It could be an ice cream mold with pistachio ......

Guess what it did tonite after the rain.....??????

Hello to all of you that come to visit my site,  here is wishing you a
Happy St Patrick’s Day

May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.


I love how the sky and clouds wrapped itself around the image of the sun.


We made bread, Josie and I, mini buns with apple, leeks, choc chip on top and a sprinkle of sea salt.  Some of them also had sesame seeds after the egg wash was painted on.

pink sunrise and its a piece of cake

this is the view i had this morning after coming home from smithers.  beautiful sunrise and clear crisp morning.

well it is not really a piece of cake!  it just looks like it could be.

this reminds me of a segment on 3ABN when David Assureck was explaining the 2300 day prophecy in Daniel, yes we are still on that chapter!, a day equals a year---it's a piece of cake do you understand, he would say.  so this period actually covers 2 thousand and so years right to the day.  How accurate and all foreseeing and considerate of a God do we have to let us know the very times we live in!  In spite of all the plans for Lucifer to destroy the world, God still had a way for the people to know him thru the reformation and translations of the Bible for the people.
Read it in The Great Controversy on line

Happy Sabbath , Best of wishes on Pink Saturday to all

Pink Perogies

I seem to be on a food roll lately, and this one i found while looking at someone's blog, it was so pretty, a different way of presenting these doughy morsels other than the regular cream and fried onions.  Spring is coming and soon we can use the pink apple blossoms also with these perogies.  My then mother in law used to make them from scratch with blueberries, with saurkraut, potatoes and cheese, they were so good--i am hungry for some.  One day I will attempt to make them!!!!!  lots of work....

I was wondering if there was such a thing as a pink clover leaf instead of a green one for pink saturday and sure enough there was!!!  saw a pink clover leaf on a mouse pad too.

23rd Psalm

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil;

My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

What a week i have had, personal struggles in family decisions and having to give up or is the word let go of three of my children because i wanted the other one to be secure, full of misunderstanding and lies to overcome and anger.  Depression set in, my legs could not get off the couch.
Finally, i decided to write a letter and do some confronting and apologetics, Suddenly a burden was lifted and God saw me thru the day.  It was like walking on air.  What an amazing thing that God could take a heavy thing and make it right again. Now I have been given my children again.

Hope your Sabbath is blest and you have a wonderful Pink Saturday!
