Dayspring Ladies Retreat 2017

 Wonderful Food Fellowship and a Beautiful day.

 We had our annual DFC Ladies's Retreat in Stuart's Draft this year at Sadie's House. She was so generous to let us use her wonderful accommodations!
They had the cutest miniature horse!

 Delicious Soup!

Cozy fire to boot! We all had a blessed time and our speaker, Wendy Good was awesome!

Delicious Chicken Dressing Recipe

Here's my next all in one meal I can't wait to make! Our wonderful neighbors the Sommers had me over for lunch as they'd made a big casserole dish full of this wonderful fare! So simple and so very delicious!

Chicken Dressing:

1 loaf bread, toasted
1 quart of chicken broth, with meat
2 T soup base
1 C celery
1 C potatoes
1/2 C onions
4 eggs
3 C milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp parsley
1 stick butter

Precook celery, carrots, and potatoes. Heat chicken broth with meat and soup base to boiling. Pour over toasted bread cubes. Beat eggs, add milk to seasonings. Add rest of ingredients, except butter. Pour half of butter into roaster and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until done.

Recipe by Reuben and Freida Swarey from an Amish Cookbook.

We had it with some extra chicken gravy we put on the top which was wonderful. Even though it has potatoes in it, I'd eat mashed potatoes with this! I love onions, so I'd put more in as well. Great for an all in one meal! Enjoy!

God has been good. Blessings from Above. The Lord of the Harvest!

 We were blessed with a good garden this year with broccoli...
 and squash, despite Mark battling with the Squash bugs everyday...
 Fresh farm eggs from our neighbors...
Lots of wonderful heirloom tomatoes!
And green too!
Peppers of various colors and sizes!
 A nice batch of yummy raw apple cider that me and Alan S. pressed ourselves with his ingenious homemade press!
 Mixed apples for sure!
 JalapeƱos, onions and yellow "Alan S. tomatoes"
 A boatload of green beans that just kept coming-from a lowly 2 rows of beans. They just keep coming and we keep picking!
 A gift of sweet corn from our friends that we got to freeze and mainly can!

 "Gringo/Gringette" hanging around the cosmos bush. It just kept staying around, eating bugs and "praying".
 We were happy to see the egg sack she put out this October- aka "ootheca" she put out with her babies that will hatch out in the spring.

 God cares for even the little praying mantis.
We ended up finding several on our property, as we never really noticed them before. They are beneficial bugs!

And last but not least, a gift from friends of a market a baby ornamental squash from last year I gave mom...She saved seeds and planted and got a very large vine growing with several white squash. She ate some and now saving some for seeds for next year. The gift that just keeps giving. As our father's love, kindness, and never ending care. Thank you, Lord for all of your gifts from above, for they are all gifts from You!
