|Scott taped the heck out of it since we don't know what color that is|
|after - matches the blue of the rug too!!|
Scott hung up the one set of curtains we have bought - they are expensive and we are buying them one panel at a time with a coupon - may take years to cover all the windows!! It's hard to take window pictures - so here is my best shot.

|my sauce is not thick enough this time|
Kung Pao Shrimp (and ZOODLES)
3/4 c chicken broth
1/4 c rice wine
2T soy sauce
1T chili garlic sauce (add a little more if you like it spicier)
1t dark sesame oil
2t peanut oil
4 scallions chopped
1T ginger paste
2 garlic cloves minced
4c broccoli florest
8 oz bamboo - Scott hates bamboo so I took a handful of baby carrots and sliced them each into 3 planks - so they look like shoots
1lb medium shrimp peeled and deveined
4 medium zucchini spirilized
2t peanut oil
Combine broth, wine, soy sauce, honey, chili garlic sauce, cornstarch and sesame oil in a bowl - set aside
heat pan swirl in peanut oil add onions, garlic, ginger, carrots (or bamboo) and saute a few minutes. Add broccoli (I add about 1/2 c water so the broccoli steams a little - up to you) cook a few minutes then add shrimp and cook until shrimp is done. Add broth - be careful it should thicken right up. in another pan that has been heated add the oil swirl it around and add the zoodles - only cook them for a minute or 2 so that they are warm.
divide into 4 equal servings.
Last weekend for our 23rd anniversary we went letterboxing and out to St Elmo's steakhouse - wow is that food amazing!! Letterboxing was so much fun. One of the things I really love about it is it takes you places you didn;'t know about. Especially if you move to a new place.We went to Franklin IN - they have a retirement community for Freemasons - the buildings are beautiful!! I love the town - the library had a bunch of fun things to do - tee shirt designing, geocaching class, herb classes!

Scott bought me this crazy wine cask at an antique place.
I know nothing about it. There is one very similar on ebay that says it's vintage carved wine safe but we think ours is resin so I can't find any info about it. I think it's fabulous though!!
Don't you just LOVE this table? I really wanted it for my craft room but they wanted way too much for it.
I baked a different bread this week - Honey Oatmeal Sandwich bread by Brown Eyed Baker
I hope you are having a lovely Easter Sunday - the weather is so nice here. Thanks for stopping by!
