We could not have asked for better weather than we had this past Easter weekend. We did lots of driving around the local villages and took MacBeth on lots of walks. Knowing that it is cold and damp in lots of the U.S. I will stop there...
I have been slowly trimming Mac's hair for summer. He hates being groomed and has to be wrestled to the ground and then bribed with lots of treats to stop his sulking afterwards. Anyway he is slowing looking more like a scotty than a wild dog.
The eyes are still a bit wonky. I've spent a lot of time just making random blocks....lots of sewing scraps together and not amounting to much. I was going to post photos of the mess but DH plugged in the TomTom into my camera's port so I'll have to wait until he comes home to crawl under the desk and re-attach it!
Ever since I read Anne on Quilting Bebbs post about her daughters Lemon Curd I have had a craving for lemon...anything! This morning I broke down and made a pan of Lemon Bars to bring to class tonight (good excuse no!) A woman I worked with in Georgia gave me this recipie and I love it...unfortunately DH hates lemon so I have to find excuses to make a pan....
Forida Deluxe Lemon Bars....
2-1/4 cups, flour, divided
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice (fresh squeezed really makes a difference in this recipie)
Combine 2 cups of flour and 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Cut in butter. Firmly press into a greased 9x13x2 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Combine the remaining 1/4 cup flour and paking pwder -s tir well. Combine eggs, sugar and lemon juice then stir into the flour mixture. Pour over prepared curst. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until set.
Let cool in the pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
Now I am off the bake the spice cookies that I get a craving for whenever I think lemon curd...that posting could put a couple of pounds on me!
