πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Constellation and Dinner Rolls!


Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Constellation! Tweety Bird is admiring the beautiful night sky! I painted this scene with acrylics. Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it!


⬆️⬆️ I also painted a Mermaid looking up at the Big Dipper, this was done with watercolours though I'm kuffuffled because there is a lot of green in that water, but I just couldn't capture it with my camera or the scanner on my printer. I even tried to add green with Photoshop but it looked horrid, I have to figure out a proper way to photograph my paintings!



⬆️⬆️ πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I have some delicious Dinner Rolls to share with you!! 



⬆️⬆️ The dinner rolls go very well with some homemade mushroom soup! (recipe and video coming soon!)

πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Bells and French Onion Soup Au Gratin!



Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Bells! December is upon us and for me, that's the start of the Christmas holiday season! Porky Pig feels the same way, he's donned his Santa suit and is ringing in the holiday season!! Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it!


⬆️⬆️ I also painted some Holiday Gnomes with watercolors! This was a lot of fun!


A big week just passed. The roofers came back to fix the roof issues, so I can finally say I have a proper tin roof installed, relief. I'm prepping video ideas for my YouTube channels, I think December's videos will be a lot of fun! And it was monthly shopping a few days ago, so I'm worn out and recovering from that. I need a few breakfast in bed days to recover! 😫 All is well here! Jack and Raven are making the most of feeling cozy and comfy during our chilly weather! We had a wee bit of snow, but it all melted. (yay!)


πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I made a very comforting French Onion Soup Au Gratin. It was so delicious with broiled Jarslberg cheese on top of my homemade toasted bread! I'll be making a video and sharing the recipe in the new year!


I also had some pizza...go figure! 😁



My bread baking series continues, this week I made Brown Sugar Raisin Bread! I can't even describe how delicious this tasted - and how my house smells these days! Home baking fragrance - I should bottle it and sell it!!! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

πŸŽ¨πŸ˜‹ Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Jungle and Prize Winner!!


Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

🎨For our 🎨 Art Date 🎨, today's optional prompt is Jungle. Tweety Bird decided to imitate a Toucan this week! Actually it's more of an impersonation of Toucan Sam from the Froot Loops cereal box. Please feel free to share any art you've created, we would love to see it!



I also painted a Toucan with watercolour paints. Toucans live in the rain forest jungles of Central and South America.

πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡ Congratulations Dorothy! πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡

Nobody guessed my really cryptic reference from last week's Bugs Bunny drawing, but Dorothy taught me something new so she gets the prize! Here was her guess:

"Rain, does your question have anything to do with the fact that Homer Laughlin China designed that dinnerware exclusively for Warner Brothers?" 

Here was the reference: There was a British sitcom from the 1990's called Keeping Up Appearances. The star of the show came from a working class family but went out of her way to look as regal and proper as she could. Of course, hilarity always ensued from her antics. She often mentioned her "Royal Doulton with the hand-painted periwinkles" as a way to pomp herself up in front of her guests. And because Bugs' pinky was up, it was a joke about how some people see the pinky up as a sign of good manners - in fact it's the opposite according to etiquette expert Emily Post, so please tuck that pinky in (unless you like to joke around like I do!) πŸ˜ƒ Dorothy I'll be mailing out your prize in the next few weeks! ♥



πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I baked up a storm! I am continuing my Bread series and this week's bread is Buttermilk Biscuits! These were so good!



I also made some Christmas cookies for the freezer. Chocolate Crinkles and some Rum Balls! (recipes and videos coming soon!)



I made some delicious Fruit Ketchup too. I love this on mashed potatoes! It's really good with scrambled eggs too. If you have a nice sharp Cheddar, you can plop a little on top and the flavour combination is divine. I used to serve my fruit ketchup with meat pies (tourtières) as well.

On the video front:

⬆️⬆️ For Rain Frances Art, I'm sharing How To Paint A Toucan with Watercolors!

⬆️⬆️ For Rain Frances Art For Kids, I have How To Draw An Owl!

⬆️⬆️ For Rain's Kitchen and Garden, I'm sharing last week's pumpkin bread video: How To Make Pumpkin Bread!

⬆️⬆️ I'm also showing you how I rehabilitate little saplings that I buy from Costco. It's horrible to find a little tree covered with that fake snow gunk. I try to save one every year by removing that fake snow and planting the tree on my land!

⬆️⬆️ And I'm sharing the recipe video for the Buttermilk Biscuits!

Welcome my Friends, to Thursday's Art and Dinner Date! 😊😊

πŸ˜‹For our πŸ˜‹ Dinner Date πŸ˜‹, I made some pumpkin bread! Our friend Joyce from Octoberfarm sent me her recipe, holy pumpkins...it's dang good! I recorded this for an upcoming video!



I was thinking about all of the dogs who graced my life over the years. My childhood pet, her name was Fluffy...came to mind. She was an English Sheep Dog and she was beautiful. I drew her with charcoal pencils. ♥



And for the "cups" theme, I painted a cup of foamy, bubbly coffee! Maybe a cappuccino! I used watercolors for this painting! ☺

On the video front:

⬆️⬆️ For Rain Frances Art, I'm sharing the lesson for the Coffee Cup.
