Chats on the Farmhouse Porch 93

Everyday Ruralty
Greetings, friends! Thank you for waiting for our weekly chat. In reality, we would have waited anyway. It was very cold out this morning. It dipped into the low thirties! Wendell said "Brrr!" He had already shedded out his winter coat, so he was hoping for a warmer day. He and his friend, Cocoa, are feeling better now. Thank you for all of the well wishes.
My opera singer daughter had a performance last night. Would anyone be interested in hearing her? I know opera isn't the first choice for many, but this is her passion.
On to the questions for today-
  1. Do you have any fun plans for the summer?
  2. Are you currently dieting or following a specific eating plan?
  3. How often do you wear blue jeans (or any other color of denim)?
  4. Who is your favorite singer?
  5. Have you cooked anything interesting lately?
My answers:
  1. Just work-work-work!
  2. I'm trying to get a lot more veggies in our diet. We always have a special diet because of allergies, but nothing here for weight.
  3. I live in them! I'd be lost without them.
  4. I love Andrea Bocelli. I'm also a big Katherine Jenkins fan. Il Divo is often in my CD player too.
  5. I used large Portuguese Kale leaves and stuffed them with a meat, rice, and spice filling. I made a tomato based sauce to pour on top and baked them. They rocked!
                                            Have a wonderful week!


  1. I would love to hear your daughter. That Kale recipe sounds interestingly delicious. B

  2. Thanks for letting me join, Sweet Lady. So glad Wendell and Cocoa are feeling better. HOPE you have a great rest of the week!! (and yes, I would love to hear your daughter sing!!!)

  3. I agree... the kale recipe sounds delicious. Would you share the recipe?

  4. Your weather this year has been CRAZY! My goodness, I bet y'all are ready for something to level out. I hope you fit some fun into the summer too. Your kale recipe sounds a lot like what we in the south call stuffed cabbage, I bet it is really good with kale. I love hangin' out with you & Wendell here on the porch. Have a blessed week :O)

  5. my birthday is May 23rd. it will be a big one for me. kind of nervous about it all. a few grey hairs have come to visit & it makes me feel old. boo hoo hiss hiss. ( :
    i'm ready for a meal - yours sounds delicious.

  6. sounds like an interesting meal... hope you get to have some fun this summer!

  7. Adding more veggies to the diet, along with reducing the meat consumption (especially red meat), is a great way to lose weight. It takes a lot of will power, though, something I'm majorly lacking these days. Good luck to you.

    Have a great week!

  8. That sounds like some cold weather you had. We finally moved out of that and had 90's the last few days, next week they say 70's. Are you going to post your daughter singing?
