We have what I will call a “postage stamp” yard at our house in town and there is no place for the snow to go but in a huge pile on my flower bed in the front yard. I think I will shovel some of the snow off the pile each day onto the driveway to melt so that I can see my flower bed as I am getting really antsy about seeing what is coming up. I would think that there would not be any winter kill on the perennials because of the good snow cover.
The recipe for this week was taken off face book by my sister and she shared it with me. She said it was very good and yields lots of gravy. She froze some of the cooked product into portions for later use. She used left over garlic bread for bread crumbs.
