Here is a recipe for Cheddar Squash Bake that I found in an old recipe box. I bought 3 old boxes as an Estate Sale and the owners' kids were selling her entire collection of recipes for $1.00 a box. Yikes - anyway here is one of the recipes that I have had a chance to try. Yes I have lots of yellow squash now :) Cheddar Squash Bake 2 pounds yellow crookneck zuccini (about 4) 1 c dairy sour cream 2 beaten yolks - eggs 2 T all purpose flour 2 stiffly beaten egg whites 1 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese 4 sliced bacon drained (opt) 1/3 c fine dry bread crumbs 1 T butter melted. Scrub squash - cut off ends. Do not peel. Slice to make 6 cups. Cook, covered in small amount of boiling salted water until tender, 15 - 20 minutes. Drain well. Sprinkle with salt. Reserve a few slices for garnish. Mix sour cream, egg yolks and flour, fold in egg whites. In a 12 x 7 x 2" casserole dish, layer half the squash, half the egg mixture, and half the cheese, sprinkle bacon on top. Repeat layers of squash, egg, cheese. Combine crumbs and butter, sprinkle atop. Arrange reserved squash atop. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Top with bacon and parsley if desired Serves 8 - 10

This weekend we went to an Estate Sale here in White House. Some of the treasures we bought were a canister set and this chair.
Here is a close-up of the fabric. It seems to be from the 40's and it rocks and swivels. It is very comfortable.

This is my favorite rose this year - it starts out yellow that ends pink.

It is crazy but we have our first roses blooming today. We have had ane early Spring here in Middle Tennessee.
Our dogwoods have been blooming for a few weeks and are already starting to lose their flowers.
Here is the front of our house with pretty pink geraniums.
We have a wren with a nest by our screened in porch that we are enjoying watching as the pair feed their growing family. Happy Spring everyone!!

Our bathroom remodel We have recently remodeled our master bathroom. As it lacks a window, it was dark with blue striped paper, dark cabinets and a 90's Scottish style Navy Blue border. I didn't take a before picture as I thought I had one but I was wrong.. Oh well trust me it was dark and blue and here is the remodel -
We have his and her mirrors where before we had a large mirrow that covered the space to the right. We had a large dark cabinet that was on the right that I took off the door to and painted it white.
On the other side of the room we used batting board which we painted white
Here is my mirror

Spring is around the corner here in Middle Tennessee and we have done a lot of redecorating. I will post photos as soon as I replace the camera I dropped and broke on Thanksgiving! Yikes! I often drop stuff, unfortunately. Here is a picture of an Amish auction in Scottsville KY last year. I asked my hubby to snap this picture and he thought I was nuts but I love it.
