Simple Pleasures~
Written by Sue, February 23, 2011
My simple pleasure today is being able to go out to my garden and gather these...

Come in the house slice them and add to this....
To put on and in this....
 go for a walk, come back in the house to the most wonderful aroma of this...

And the best simple pleasure was to hear dh say"mmmm this is so good." Such sweet music to my ears. I love to garden and I love to cook, especially if the veggies come from my garden. I found many simple pleasures today, but I chose this one because the end product brought a much welcomed Simple pleasure to DH.

Thankyou for the yummy recipe. Yes, there is a wonderful sense of pleasure of picking and using your own produce.

Oh, my I can smell that delightful looking chicken all the way over here! There is nothing quite like picking and cooking with your own garden picked veggies. Loved your Simple Pleasure today.

Some of my best recipes have come from Blogging friends. It looks like I got another one (recipe & friend)!

Julie Harward February 24, 2011 at 12:23 AM  

I know that feeling...and your chicken looks wonderful too! :D

Trish February 24, 2011 at 12:26 AM  

Sue, your chicken looks great and I'm sure is delicious - makes me hungry just looking at it!
What joy it is to make our DH's happy.
bless you..Trish

Oh, Sue, that chicken does look good..and I think your so awesome for growing your own food!!! I'm glad that DH enjoyed your dinner. It sounds like you had a good day and that makes me very happy :) :) Thank God for simple pleasures like these ;) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

Sue February 24, 2011 at 7:30 AM  

Ohh yummy, my mouth is watering. I love using veggies from our garden too.

Hi Sue:

It's breakfast with Christine and dinner with Sue. This looks and sounds delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Oh I so agree...what a wonderful pleasure...and stopping by here is one of mine!

Debbie February 24, 2011 at 8:13 AM  

I think you nailed a very good simple pleasure. When we put in a garden last year for the first time in years, I had a whole new interest in cooking.

Now on another topic. I'm confused. I thought you weren't posting because there was never an update on "Where Memories are Made". That's the one that comes up on my homepage even though I think it says "Pear Tree Lane."

How do I follow here so I don't miss a post? I don't see little faces grinning back anywhere...

Can you email me at wordsonwheels@live.com if it's possible?

Heather T. February 24, 2011 at 8:58 AM  

Mmmm...mmmmmm :) I love the smell of chicken baking with all the yumminess of fixings and the best part is the pure freshness of it all.

Vee February 24, 2011 at 9:21 AM  

Nothing better than the aroma of a baking chicken and I do believe with your fresh onions and spices, it must have been out of this world.

Debbie February 24, 2011 at 9:50 AM  

PERFECT simple pleasure...yummmm, but your right..a happy hubby is definitely another! Have a wonderful day! HUGS

BEACH BUNGALOW February 24, 2011 at 10:46 AM  

YUM! Can I come to din-din?

Hope you'll top by the Beach Bungalow sometime for a visit!


Farm Girl February 24, 2011 at 12:27 PM  

Oh how yummy Sue, I haven't had breakfast yet and I think that makes me want to go on into lunch.
Thank you so much for your very sweet words. As always it gives me joy,

Happy@Home February 24, 2011 at 12:56 PM  

That chicken looks so good. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I agree that picking fresh things from the garden and then turning them into a delicious meal is truly a simple pleasure.

Oh I am green with envy! My garden is still under about 5 feet of snow! Last week it was under 6 feet but we had some warm weather for melting! Spring is coming.

Happyone :-) February 24, 2011 at 3:25 PM  

That looks delicious.
Simple pleasures have a way of becoming the big things!

LDH February 24, 2011 at 3:59 PM  

A very delightful, heartwarming and tummy filling simple pleasure!

Evelyn S. February 24, 2011 at 5:22 PM  

Oh my! Onions already? You're obviously in a part of the country where I'm not! ;-) Beautiful photos....unbelievable 'farm' house!

Sandy February 24, 2011 at 5:26 PM  

Sue, this is a great post! Thank you so much for the recipe! Thank you so much for your encouraging comments to me!

Jen February 24, 2011 at 9:43 PM  

I had my first garden last spring and well, I'm learning. Can't wait to do it again, though!

Elena February 25, 2011 at 12:12 AM  

Oh Sue your chicken looked so good I could almost taste it! I love simple pleasures too and also to hear my hubby say he enjoyed the meal. He is so sweet to thank me each evening for dinner!

After reading your post about spring onions I walked out to my garden and harvested some growing in my garden. Tomorrow I will use them when I bake a hen. You turned your simple pleasure into mine also.

Susan B February 25, 2011 at 7:55 PM  

Hi Sue,
Thank you for sharing your recipe, it looks wonderful! I hope you have a great weekend. :)

Sue, so nice to see you at the Simple Pleasures party, and what a great post this is. Cooking for loved ones ... the pleasure is on both ends of that one.

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
