I have a bit of a hodgepodge of photos this week. In lieu of just literal sunshine, I'm including things that bring on a sunny mood. For example, last week Lorrie (of Fabric Paper Thread) shared her recipe for Carrot Ginger Soup and I had a lovely time puttering in the kitchen making it. It's delicious, by the way!
After baking many chicken pieces one afternoon, more kitchen puttering the next day led to a rather old school chicken casserole. Warm, comfort food on a cold day just works.
It's seems I've fallen into a food theme at this point. Another day, another place to put some chicken. I gather you can tell the photo was an afterthought, given the way things are splayed about on the plate. It was a tasty lunch, though, with mixed greens, red peppers, green apples, onions, chicken, and a sprinkling of crumbled blue cheese.
Moving on to non-edible greenery, this amaryllis is one I purchased for Christmas 2013. I put it outside the following summer, brought it back in when fall arrived and then neglected the poor thing. With nothing to lose, I've been watering it lately and things are happening. Maybe there will be an amaryllis for St. Patrick's Day!
If so, it will go well with the currently (out of season) blooming Christmas cactus. One thing about having a plant that has failed to produce more than a couple of flowers per year is that this person really appreciates it when it puts on a better show!
Your turn. Remember, Sunlit Sunday will wind up at the end of March.
Have a lovely week.
