Beautiful Sunsets



When we’re not having snow, we have some beautiful sunsets.  This shows the setting sun reflecting on the remaining clouds.  It’s so surreal to see that last bit of light when everything else in the hollow is already dark. 

I can see just a touch of green at the edge of the woods now as my buttercups (Daffodil )are starting to peak out from the frozen ground.  I usually see them around the end of January, but they were probably covered in snow!  So, if all goes well, they may even start blooming by the end of February depending on how many more rounds of snow we get by then.  But, it is a sure sign that Spring is on the way.

Here’s a dessert to brighten up some gloomy days.

Peach Pippin

2 cans Peaches, drained

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

1 cup sugar

1 heaping tsp. baking powder

Enough plain flour to make a stiff batter

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat egg, add milk and mix well.  Add enough flour to make a stiff batter.  Cover the bottom of a cake pan with peaches, either canned or fresh.  Cover with sugar, the pour the batter over peaches and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Serve with ice cream.
