In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Hunter loves Disney Cars so his choice for grandmas birthday cake was Lightening Mcqueen and Mater. He was very proud of his choice.
 One of my favorite places to go for lunch is Just Like Grandmas located in Osakis Minnesota not far from where I live. It is a bed and breakfast and tea room. There are also a few shops behind the main house. They have had to downsize the last couple of years and it has changed ownership but still a great place to visit.

I had the Chicken Strawberry salad with a Ruhbarb Muffin it was delicious but hubby had his luch half eaten so I was unable to get a picture

Here is my husbands sister and friend who made this beautiful necklace for me. I think she should start a little business of her own
There are 3 birthstones on the side for my children and in the nest the stones are for my grandchildren. We called it The Empty Nest
The food is really good  here we have a Chicken Salad Crossiant and Wild Rice Soup

 Cucumber Cream Cheese on a herb roll amd Chicken Wild rice Soup
I love the Stain Glass on the top of this window

There is also outdoor seating but the weather was a bit cloudy and windy this day so we ate inside

here is a shop with hats, jewlery. and some garments to buy

 The rest has a variety of gifts from Garden to North Woods. I got something for my sisters. I didn't take a picture of the main house because I thought I had one in my files but I could not find it when I went to post my pictures.
My Birthday was June 10 ... I had a great day with Dinner at the Red Lobster and the next day lunch here.

What a lovely necklace Alice. The meal looks so yummy, I have never thought of combining chicken and strawberries. Since we have a lot of strawberries in our garden and lots of chicken I think I will give the combo a try, soon!
