Give an Apron with this Darling Poem!!


I gave an apron and this SO cute poem to 3 very special ladies last year for Christmas. Aprons are so so popular this year it seems.  Now it can be that much more fun!!

The Apron Poem
When I used to visit Grandma.

I was very much impressed,
By her all-purpose apron,
And the power it possessed.
She used it for a basket,
When she gathered up the eggs,
And flapped it as a weapon,
When hens pecked her feet and legs.
She used it for a hot pad,
To remove a steaming pan,
And when her brow was heated,
She used it for a fan.
It dried our childish tears,
When we'd scrape a knee and cry,
And made a hiding place
When the little ones were shy.
Farm produce took in season,
In the summer, spring and fall,
Found its way into the kitchen
From Grandma's carry all.
PS I picked this poem off a forum many years ago.  IF you are the author or know who the author is please please let me know.  I am more than happy to give credit where credit is due.

loves to all!!!

Chicken and Potato Curry TIkka Marsala

  This tikka masala curry if far from an authentic recipe, but it does deliver that iconic, nuclear-orange flavor you crave, and its comforting and delicious. While I personally use more like 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, my family prefers a little more mellow, I've provided the recipe with a hotter heat level for those who prefer it more spicy. You could even add more if you like the hotter heat. We love eating it over basmati rice and the leftovers the next day are even better! Give it a try!

Crock Pot Refried Beans

  These crockpot 'Dump and Go' refried beans are a game-changer, far surpassing anything you'll find in a can and much less expensive too. The beans are slow-cooked to perfection with savory seasonings, resulting in a rich, creamy texture and a depth of flavor that will elevate any dish. Once you try these, you'll never go back to the canned stuff!
