First Day of Spring

Depends on who ya ask
it's either the 19, 20. or 21...
I prefer to claim the 21st because that is
Spring Solstice or Equinox...
You like?
I could love Winter in North Idaho if it were gone by Valentines day, or March 21st, or at least by Easter...
But somehow N. Ida. NEVER gets the memo.
I hate to see winter come, because it never knows when to go!!!

My 200th post...

And what do I post about???
of course!!!
That's what drives my life!
I got a bug for trying German food,
and bought a Spaetzle maker.
I made Spaetzle and cheese (Jarlsburg) with smokey bacon and sauteed onion rings on top.
This weekend I made a homemade chicken noodle soup and made spaetzle noodles to add to it,
so very good.
I made the soup base by boiling a chicken carcus left over from other meals (was a rotisserie chicken)
added some chopped carrot, celery, onion, smokey bacon, chicken meat that I picked off the bones, a few boullion cubes to jazz up the flavor, a little gravy mix for body, a left over steamed potatoe cut up.  When I got that far it tasted great but just didn't have quite enough stuff in it, so I made half a batch of spaetzle noodles...perfect!
Love homemade soups during cold weather.


Sage isn't ALMOST as tall as me anymore, he IS taller!
The rude part is that it accents just how fast the years are going by !
This was a year ago approximately.
