A Big Announcement!

For those of you who saw in the last post I was making bread it turned out great couldn't be easier.
it is King Arthur Flour no knead bread super easy.

My Brother was home from Mississippi. It was such a great week
we kayaked and fished a lot. He took some great pictures and caught some brook
trout that we cooked on the grille. It was hard to let him go today we see each other about once a year. He is a northern boy at heart and wants back in the north east I sure hope it happens soon.

While he was here he was a good sport and went yard saling and thrifting with me.
This is a steif kangaroo it is about 5-6 inches tall. he does not have his ear tag or the little roo that went in her pocket but for 1.00 it will look good with my feather tree this Christmas.

Curtains to change out the spare bedroom/craft room

I got some great books at the thrift store. yes that is a rug hooking book for 50 cents.

But truly the best bargain of the weekend were these steaks. I picked them up today
20.00 worth of steaks for 6.00 we had one on the grille and saved the other in the freezer for another night. T-bones are my favorite but at 10.00 a pound I do not get them very often.
Now for the big news! Husband has started his own blog. I guess he saw how much I love mine and wanted in. So go to  acorn hollow woodworking and say hi.
You won't skid if you stay in a rut.

Hi Cathy,
In my haste to get over to your husbands blog I forgot to leave a comment on yours! So I'm back to say your finds this week are really great! That Steif kangaroo was a great bargain....
How did you talk your Dave into blogging? I wish my Dave would start one! LOL! I know he is too busy now with his job though..... maybe after he retires.
Looks like you are enjoying the summer with your company and all the good eats!!

I went over to Dave's blog and forgot all about leaving a comment on your blog, hahaha. That bread looks yummy, but really no kneading needed?

Travis is a lucky little man to have you both as grandparents.
Have a great week. JB

Sounds like the best of times. I love to find mark down meat too. Can't afford steaks any other way.

How great to spend some 'family time' together - looks nice and relaxed.
The Steiff kangaroo is a great find, books too :o)
What a shame you couldn't share that steak with us though ;o)

Your bread looks like it belongs at my place. ;) I make a no knead bread also. I made a post on it a while back here:

I'd love to take a look at your recipe and try it. We love homemade bread here and I'm always looking for new recipes.

How fun that David has also started a blog up! I'll stop by.
