A Conglomeration of Directions

The weekly Five Minute Friday word prompt for this week is “direction.” It is so good to be back here after a break over the holidays.

North, south, east, west

Up, down, sideways, backwards

Directions lead us along the journey of life, but often that journey is not as clear cut as we would like. There are times I wish God would put traffic signs to tell me what’s next…

Yield, merge, stop, go.

Directions are all around us. I love following a recipe to try something new. I’m in love with JoAnna Gaines cookbook Magnolia Table. I can’t wait for her new one; the next edition to come out in the Spring.

Last night though, I went back to my German Russian roots and made knoephla hotdish (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knoephla). I also love it as a soup. A casserole dish, knoephla, bacon, sausage, chicken broth, cream and pepper. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. It’s better with onions, sauerkraut, and potatoes. I left out the onions and sauerkraut because my sister doesn’t like them. I simply forgot to pick up potatoes at the store. Oops! But it was still yummy!

  1. Mine enemy’s confounded;
    this is Der Tag, the day!
    They have me surrounded,
    and now they can’t get away.
    Lay it on for honour bright,
    and loved ones left behind;
    let it shine, the Viking light
    and the killing frame of mind.
    Let the blood run freely,
    let hate inform the heart
    for dying is unseemly
    if you’ve not had time to play your part.
    May I be the one that others follow
    to the gates of fair Valhalla.

  2. I love sharing recipes and the love of cooking with my children. I love showing them how simple ingredients can turn into a wonderful meal. I also love that you tailored the meal to your sisters preferences. It is a sign of love when one remembers what a loved one likes and does not like. I hope you have a lovely day!
