Hello, Everyone! Welcome back to another year of Mountain Musings!
I promised to see you in January...and here I am, only a tad bit late climbing back into the saddle! Ha!
We hope you all had a lovely holiday and are ready to experience all the new things the Lord has for us in 2017! Happy New Year!
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.~ Isaiah 43:19
The snow that greeted us and many others in the South, kept us inside all weekend with extremely cold temperatures; church services being cancelled; internet service--slow and spotty; and ack! no water in the house on Sunday morning!
Yes, we're practicing being content in whatsoever state we're in...while boiling water from grocery store jugs for hot face washes and trying to make do until the well-drilling guy shows up with a new pump...if, indeed, that's what's wrong!
We're all praying for wonderful fresh water, which is so often taken for granted, to be pumping sooner rather than later. Praising the Lord for electricity, however, to make hot water until then!
I'm planning out how to complete Hannah's birthday meal today...I'll just have to pretend I'm living in Little House on the Prairie days and boil a sink full of water to get everything clean after cooking in the kitchen. I don't think Laura was accustomed to a dishwasher!
Yes, it's Hannah's birthday today! Happy birthday, sweet Hannah! Here's a picture of her eating out recently on a quickie lunch date with Dad:Hannah put in her usual out-of-the-ordinary request for her birthday meal, and I purchased all the ingredients before the snow came....now, just to get started. I'm not a whiz at cheesecakes like Sarah, but we'll see how this new recipe turns out...Chai Spice Cheesecake, which she found over on the blog Lady Behind the Curtain.
The main dish she picked is Thai Green Curry Chicken, found over on All Recipes. This recipe called for green curry paste and fish sauce...not typical ingredients found in my southern kitchen. But we heard that Sarah made this dish at her house, so we're going on her recommendation.
Okay...you know where I'll be. I'd better get started. After I finish I can relax and watch the birdies. This was the scene early Saturday morning when we awoke:Wish me success in getting this birthday meal on the table, wish Hannah a happy 33rd birthday, and wish (pray) for water...please!
