Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

If It's Good Friday . . .

There must be

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!
One ha'penny, two ha'penny,
Hot cross buns!
If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons
One ha'penny,
Two ha'penny,
Hot cross buns

 for breakfast!

It's tradition.

Served with scrambled eggs and bacon 
And a mug of steaming coffee for Husband Jim
Tea for me!

Mother always bought Hot Cross buns for Good Friday breakfast
and I've followed the tradition.

With just the two of us there is usually enough leftover for Good Friday tea as well.

I don't bake them
We always buy them
And this year, they came from friend Jacki
of Heritage Acres Farm

After breakfast
 a trip to the city

And lunch at 
Spin Pizza

I thought I was in Italy!

A simple dinner 

Bucatini with a jarred sauce and a salad
before we head off to Good Friday church services

And once home . . .

There seems to be more Easter cookies in my life . . .
I have a couple of late orders (sigh)
