Sweet Amber Maple Syrup

We are at it again.
We are in the process of setting up for another sweet spring.
The maple trees are being tapped as I make this entry so I cannot
stay with you long. There is maple syrup to dream about.

There is a Dark Chocolate Cake in the oven, (sorry Sherry, wish you could be here for a hunk with Peanut Butter Frosting).
Coffee's due to perk,
And Pork Chops to brown and set in the slow cooker
with potatoes and carrots, for supper.
By 5 p.m., the guys will be hungry and ready to retire for the day.

Well, Maybe.

Until next time ;-)
a wink and a smile and
I'm on my way to the woods.
Break time is arriving fast.
You're welcome to come along for the ride.

This all makes me hungry. Maple syrup is a treat in my area. I love to cook with it also. It looks pretty all put up in the mason jar. Blessings!

Gorgeous Maple Syrup- It would be such amazing thing to have maple trees close up to gather the syrup. Many years ago I went to a cabin a sucre( sugar cabin in Quebec) where the sugar was being boiled from the trees- We had it over the snow- it was so yummy- makes my mouth water just thinking about it
Have a great week- sounds like you are cooking up some wonderful things in your kitchen.

Learning how to tap trees and do this is on my bucket list. Hope you have a great season.

Maple has to be my all-around favorite kind of syrup! Thanks for the dreams. I'll have another waffle, please, and pass the peanut butter!

HI Dar, It's great to hear from you... I know how busy you are.. We have taken 3 trips since Feb. 13.... SO--we are staying busy also. How's Mel??? Haven't heard from her lately either.

Have you had a fairly mild winter up there? We have had almost no winter here. They say the BUGS will be horrible this summer due to all of the rain we have had --and due to the fact that winter didn't kill them all out. Yuk.....

Wish I could taste some REAL Maple Syrup sometime. I know that yours has to be fabulous.
