It Was So Much Fun…

…to laugh and talk with these girls!


6 of the 10 contributors on the Mennonite Girls Can Cook blog.


Julie, Bev K. , Betty R., and Charlotte were unable to join us.


It was my first face to face with all these ladies. You know these girls are even thinner in person. I forgot to ask them their secret on how they stay so slim while cooking all that great food!!  And for the record…Kathy, I think you are great!! I feel so blessed to have been adopted into the fold even though I’m not Mennonite. Many of our Russian recipes are similar to the Mennonite favorites.


Before eating we got a little shopping in. After lunch we parted ways. I headed South and they headed North with a stop at the Tulip Fields.


I brought home a food gift and the prize I won on Judy’s blog giveaway a while back.

My own Vancouver Olympic Mittens and a Canada Pin! Thank you MGCC for a wonderful day and thank you Judy for my prize. I love the mittens and the pin.

Before I met up with the girls I had a quick stop at the tulip fields and I’ll show more of those photos later.  Blessings!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Hi Ellen – I was so disappointed to have not been able to join you today. I have my kids and grandkids here from Sask for just 2 days here on a last minute trip and they took priority. I hope we can meet sometime soon as I would dearly have loved to be there with you all today. Glad to hear you had a good time and found it easy to visit with these great mennonite gals. How blessed we are to have this communtiy of likeminded friends.

  2. Ellen . ..I loved the post. . I just finished mine for tomorrow and smiled to see the same pictures on yours.
    It was a real privilege to meet you and just for the record “I think you are great”.

    I’m glad you had a safe ride home and I hope you are enjoying a very nice evening with your childrens’ dad.

  5. Ellen… such a sweet post! It truly was great to finally meet you! Thank yo for taking the time and being brave enough to come out on your own.

If I can’t sleep… I’ll blog. If I sleep, it will be up later this week. The tulip fields were beautiful! It was a wonderful day!
