As you may know I haven't blogged much 

lately but I wanted to just start sharing a 

recipe here and there.  I have been participating

in intercessory prayer daily for America and 

the recent Presidential election.

Olde English Trifle made with English Devon Custard

In a glass bowl or compote layer the following:

  Split lady fingers turned sideways around the edge of the glass bowl or cubes of pound cake, fresh fruit of your choice or according to seasonal availability,  raspberry jam and Devon Custard (repeat layers again to the top)

At the top of the bowl, pile on the lovely whipping cream (cool whip could work too) – maybe some of the fruit on the top!

*2 cups whipping cream – whip in ¼ cup of powdered sugar till stiff

 If you don’t have access to Devon Custard – vanilla pudding made up or lemon pie filling will work!!!

 I recently joined the social media

platform known as MeWe.  If 

you are a Christian this might

be a place to visit.  

is for women who love the Lord

 and want to share their tea time

experiences, recipes, scriptures and

Christian music, etc.

Mewe is similar to Facebook but with

NO ads, no censoring and no collecting

your data. 

Think about it - you are invited to join!

So we saw they have snow up north in

Iowa today.  We have temperatures here 

at about 42 degrees so after a long, hot

 summer that feels very cold.

I am sharing some fall decorating at our house.

So as part of our kitchen we have a

hearth room where we put some of our

 more formal antique pieces.

 Our home is very casual.  We are retired

and that is reflected in our home.

I am enjoying the fall transferware

pieces mixed in with some fall and

thanksgiving cookbooks.

We used our fireplace

last night and it felt wonderful.

Some were are saying it will be a colder

winter so we shall see if that is correct.

It isn't saying that here!

We are finishing up our last of the out of doors

projects this week and Thursday promises warmer

weather so that will be much appreciated!
