Catching Up

I'm behind on If It's Tuesday . . . reports. Two weeks ago we tried Nancy's White Chicken Chili. I also made corn bread to go with the meal. We loved it! It's definitely made the "We Will Have It Again" list. Nancy, please send me your snail mail address and I will send out your prize.

This past week we didn't have a If It's Tuesday . . . meal as my DIL was sick. We already have this coming week's meal picked out so stay tuned. I promise photos before we eat it.

We've also started making gelato. When we were on vacation we had awesome cherry gelato at the Opera Bistro in Saint John, NB. DS received an ice cream maker for a wedding gift and they hadn't used it. They brought it over and now we have gelato on Tuesdays with chicken. The first week we had strawberry gelato. Last week we had banana gelato. This week I made peach and blueberry gelato. We haven't tried it yet. Probably tonight for dessert.

I have to share my vacation vintage find. We aren't big antique shoppers, but we found a cool antique mall in Bangor and took a stroll through it. I saw this white candy dish and knew I had to have it. My grandma had a candy dish just like this one and since I didn't get hers, I got this one.
The best part of the purchase was I thought it was on sale for 20% off it's price. However, it was 50% off! Sweet!

I hope you're having a great weekend! I'm babysitting my 3-month-old grandson this weekend so mommy and daddy can celebrate their anniversary. We are having a good time.

Love the candy dish! You have a very yummy blog! I had to check you out as I saw your comment on someone's blog and you signed it Sweet P. I said hey wait a minute I'm Sweet P ha ha. Actually my blog is called Sweet P, I'm really Paulette! When I retired I was afraid I would be bored so I decided to start a business- called it Sweet P. I ended up being too busy to do business but decided to use it for blogging. I have been having fun ever since.
Take care, S.P. I will be back to look at your yummy food!

Gelato sounds good! :-) Great deal on the milk glass too! I always love it when I think I'm getting a good deal and then get to the checkout and realize it's even better than I thought. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...
