Looking Forward

Sorting through my mom's belongings, we remembered with joy the things that were so special to her.
I made this little heart from a Family Circle Magazine project way back in 1979.
It was from our Erin on her 1st Valentine's Day.
My mom kept if for over thirty years.

Another Blessing

I went with Jamie and the three oldest kids for her ultrasound.
Everything looks perfect.
And now we know...
a sweet baby girl 
just 19 weeks 
Her tiny heart beating. Her mouth opening and closing.  Her arm and hand moving toward her mouth.
arrival date ~ end of February
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you

Williamsburg Inn Chicken & Dumplings

Chicken and Dumplings was one of my mother-in-laws signature dishes and was part of her Sunday dinner rotation. It is a comforting and homey meal and always a favorite of our oldest daughter, Erin.

Plum Oatmeal Crisp

Thank You, Martha, for this delicious
Plum Oatmeal Crisp recipe.
Super yummy!

Plum Oatmeal Crisp
Recipe from Martha Stewart
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 1/2 pounds ripe plums (about 8), cut into 1-inch pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, oats, and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until coarse crumbs form.

In a shallow 2-quart baking dish, toss plums with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon flour; sprinkle with oat topping.

Place dish on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until topping is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes before serving.
