Sowing project in full flow

Goodmorning everybody!

Monday morning jan was at the hospital appointment and cam eback more reassured.
His doctor said to him that he should have come when he was feeling so bad the other week, but she knw him too, LOL.
Jan was able to spit out some questions and got some answers. Result of all is now, that a complete checkup he would have in june has been persponed to april, which I find a good thing. That done he will have another appointment with his doctor to talk through the results and hear what actions will be taken, if necessary.
I could tell, he was feeling better after his appointment, because he went to the market later that afternoon  and came back with  lots of fruit and veggies.
And back home he occupied himself with some sowing and also yesterday he spent some time with it and also in the garden. Some of the seeds already sprout and if 75% of all comes up, we will have a small problem. Don';t know where to put it all LOL!
Monday afternoon I went out to copy all needed, and yesterday I copied the actual two forms of application and could put the whole envelop in the mailbox( and it was a thick envelop!). It felso soooo good to have that done. Now another one needs to be done, but that will be easier, because I have all needed papers already together. Just have to sort ut which ones I really need to copy and attach( yeah, this form doesn;t need exactly the same ones, sigh!).

But I was so happy about the first that I tried out yesterday a recipee for cauliflower, Jan brought from the market. and it is a good, tasty and easy one.

 Cauliflower (4 persons)

Needed: 1 cauliflower, 2 tomatoes, 1 onion, 250 grams mushrooms, grated cheese, milk, flour, butter, salt

Cauliflower cut into florets, mushrooms sliced, tomato into small dices, chop onion.
Cook cauliflower with some salt for about 10 minutes , should not be overcooked.
Melt butter in skillet, fry onion, then add mushrooms and tomato and fry gently for a couple of minutes.
Grease baking dish, spread over the bottom musroom mix, drain the cauliflower  and add above the mix.
With butter, flour and milk  make a roux and add some of  the grated cheese to it.
Pour over the cauliflower, let gratin in the oven at about 200 degrees C. for perhaps 10-15 minutes.
(Pre-heat oven)

Is delicious with fried potatoes, or potato gratin or french fries.
You can have this meal with or without meat.

I think Jan and I will spent a bit of time in the garden, weather is rather good for it at the moment, although you need to have a warm sweater on.
We need to replace a few pots, clean them out, put in new soil, figure ut where we will put our dahlia's this year, etc.
I must say, Jan is the most active in the garden. I still don;t feel the real "urge'to get busy there. But I am sure the spirit will come back quickly, when I really start doing something there.

Abut time to finish this post, not without a wonderful freebie frm Arlene, made with the Where is Spring hiding kit.
Have a wonderful day

Hello and Thank you Kyra for the lovely clusters from Arlene (Hello and Thank you Arlene).
Kyra your Cauliflower recipe looks very interesting too.
Hopefully Jan's appointment in April will be able to sort out what has been going on and what caused his health scare...

Good morning Kyra. Your recipe sounds delicious (except for the mushrooms. I would leave them out.) I am so jealous that you are able to work in the garden already. We still can't get to ours. Oh well, Spring will make it to my town eventually.

The weather here has been fabulous. Today we will go pick a few items at the market, and then look for some birds to photograph.

Then it will be back to our crochet projects. DIL is making a rather pretty sweater shrug, and I'm working on am afghan.

It's getting very close to noon, so we are going to head out now. You have a wonderful day my friend. Hugs, Edna B.

Great news on the garden. If I ever get to have one again it'll be because someone made me a frame I can fill with soil and mulch for the plants and high enough that the dogs won't trample thru it. lol

Thanks to Arlene for the pretty clusters. and thanks to you for the kit she used.
