A Day in Hartland
Grandpa plans his summer garden, making out his order from the seed catalog.
Grandma cooks dinner.
Chicken Pot Pie!
Bailey the dog wishes he could take a walk.
The sock continues slowly.
Dinner is homemade chicken pot pie, salad, potato puffs, and peach melba for dessert.
Grandma's Potato Puffs
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1/2 cup flour
1.5 tsp. baking powder
1.5 tsp salt
(maybe add some grated onion?)
Mix all ingredients together. heat oil in frying pan. Drop large spoonfuls into hot oil. Brown on both sides.
10 oz. frozen raspberries (or fresh)
2/3 cup sugar
pinch of cream of tartar
plain yogurt (Greek yogurt would be excellent)
peach halves in heavy syrup
Thaw raspberries if frozen. Cook with sugar, stirring constantly, till raspberries break down and thicken. Place a peach half on each plate. Fill with a scoop of yogurt. Pour sauce over peach and yogurt. Or serve in parfait glass.
After dinner, a walk to the library, over the river, but not through the woods!
25 degrees, not much wind, wearing Grandpa's hood over my hat, I am as toasty as can be.
