I know I’m early, but I won’t be online much over the week-end.  I want to wish all the Mother’s reading this a very Happy Mother’s Day!  I hope you all have a lovely day, and wonderful week-end.

Happy Independence Day!

I’m spending the day with my family, laughing, eating way too much, and being thankful for all my blessings; the freedom, and liberty we have in this country which was hard won by my/our forefathers.  John Adams summed my feeling today when he said, “[L]iberty must at all hazards be supported. We have a right to it, derived from our Maker. But if we had not, our fathers have earned and bought it for us, at the expense of their ease, their estates, their pleasure, and their blood.”
John Adams

I wish all my fellow countrymen and women a wonderful day full of fun, great food, and maybe some fireworks shared with those you love!  If you’re not celebrating Independence Day today I hope you have a lovely day too!

I’m posting this a bit early because He-Man and I are celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary this week-end.  No one is more surprised than us that we’ve been married this many years.  Time has just flown by!

Table Mt. Spring Lupine in Full Bloom

Regarding this image- I made it last March about this same time when the Lupine was in full bloom up on the mesa.

Our plans for this week-end? He-Man and I  are going to celebrate us, and wrap ourselves up in each other, and nature over a long week-end.  I’ll be offline until Monday.  🙂

May  your Easter Basket be filled to the brim with goodies and love. Happy Easter!

If you don’t celebrate Easter I hope you enjoy the week-end with those you love.

I made an Irish Tea Cake as a nod to the Irish today. We’re all Irish today right? 🙂  So, here’s a slice of Irish Tea Cake,

I’m having Chamomile tea with mine, what would you like?

Irish Tea Cake and TeaI used a recipe I found on allrecipes. com  It’s delicious and super simple to make. You probably have all the ingredients

in your pantry already!

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time 30 to 40 minutes

Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes

Servings: 10

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract- (I used Madagascar vanilla bean paste.)

1 3/4 all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk ( I used whole milk)

1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar for dusting

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round pan.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing until

fully incorporated; stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the batter alternately with the milk. If the batter is too stiff a tablespoon or two of milk may be added. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

3. Bake for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack, then turn out onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioner’s sugar right before serving.
