Mother of Pearl Necklace
This one screams summer to me!!!
The stick beads are dyed mother of pearl. I just love the turquoise and green together! I used turquoise magnesite in between each. This pretty piece is available at Miss Val’s Creations.
Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie
I know this is a cold weather dish, but it has not quite warmed up fully in my neck of the woods (although this coming week is looking warm)! Vegetarian shepherd’s pie is fun to make and can accept so many different substitutes!
For this one we started sautéing summer squash, mushrooms and carrots.
Then added lite soy sauce, freeze dried chives, black pepper and olive oil as needed to create a delicious gravy to taste.
So simple.We whipped up some mashed potatoes. We always leave the skin on for extra nutrition.
We mixed in corn when putting the veggies in the casserole dish.
Then the mashed potatoes were spread on top along with shredded cheddar for extra pizzazz. We baked it until the cheese started browning a little.
MMMM! Ok, it does not look pretty, but boy does it taste delicious! Amazing comfort food…vegetarian and gluten free style!!!!
These are my mini crocuses that bloom next to my driveway.This sweet mystery flower is blooming next to them.
