Only 71 days till Spring. I am eagerly awaiting the budding trees, the daffodils pushing up through the ground and all of that good stuff. Granted, there are no daffodils to poke their pretty heads up through the ground here, but we are scheduled to have all kinds of things planted around here since they pulled up the dying shrubs.
Some of my flowers from home.
It is still quite chilly here this morning at 23 degrees. There is a heavy fog that is not burning off very quickly. As soon as it is clear I am going to the store as I am out of eggs. I had my daughter and SIL over for lunch after church yesterday and I have a lot of mashed potatoes left over. I am going to make Potato Cakes out of them, cool and freeze them.
Fried Potato Cakes:
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
1 beaten egg
1/4 cup of flour
Stir the beaten egg and flour into the mashed potatoes. Form into patties and dip each patty into flour again. Brown in 2 tablespoons of oil.
These are so good. My mom used to make them when I was a child. Isn’t it amazing the memories we retain from our childhood? I have what would be called a selective memory. I remember the things I want to remember and the rest goes in what I call the trash pile section of my brain. lol
I have already done laundry. After I get home from the store I will tackle a little bit of cleaning. My first doctor appointment of the new year is on Wednesday. Can’t wait (said in sarcastic tone).
I hope this is a good week for us all. Stay safe and be happy!!
