Hope you're all having a nice and relaxing Sunday. My morning was spent in the kitchen. I was in the mood for making some munchies for the guys in my family so I whipped up some Spinach Dip and Flan this morning.
Also got some Corned Beef going in the slow cooker. This is one of my favorite dishes. I can eat it for days without getting tired of it. Ha-ha, but those who know me know that I don't like "fat" in my food (ex: chicken skin, fat on pork butt, steak, etc.). I cut 'em off and toss it when hubby isn't looking. Hee-hee. So here's what I do with the Corned Beef Brisket. You know it has all that yummy "meat" stuck in the marbled "fat." Well, after it's fully cooked, I remove it from the cooker, let it cool a bit, then "pull" the meat out and toss the fat. When my brother-in-law heard about that he said, "WHAT??? That's the best part. She's nuts." :-)
Oh, I wanted to share the pretty Cherry Blossoms from our yard. A friend of mine gave me a cutting at least 8 years ago. Every year I'd wait for a full blooming tree like others in our area but all we'd get was just one flower here and a couple there. Well, this year, though our tree still looks kind of bald, it's the most blossoms we've had and I can see LOTS of buds on the branches. YAY!!!
This is a Sara Kay stamp that I got from Munchkins just a couple of months before her store closed. I love Sara Kay designs, they're so cute. Of course I had to add the little pooch by Dandelion Designs. It reminds me of our dog, Buddy.
