Well it is Tasty Tuesday, and I normally post a good yummy recipe, I may later in this post, but wanted to share my Lily with you it has 3 blooms on that stalk now, with others popping out, so pretty, I am excited to see how many it will end up with, hoping some of the other plants will bloom like this on, but no sign of that happening yet. Here Is the Bloom today.

One of my hens Esther, keeps getting out, and yesteday I found out where she has been going...
She has been going in the shed, where I keep the hay, and laying her eggs in there, here is a photo
of them, just remarkable how chickens find things, and odd places they lay their eggs. I am not sure they will be good, not even sure how old they are, I am really thinking it was this week though.

Okay now for the recipe for Tuesday, it is one of my favorites, and most all folks love this.

Bowtie Pizza

1 1/2 to 2 cups cooked bowtie pasta
2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup pasta or pizza sauce
1/2 pound cooked Italian sausage or pepperoni slices
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions: Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Add cooked pasta to egg mixture and stir to coat. Pour into pie dish sprayed with Pam or buttered. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Spread pasta sauce over baked pasta, then sprinkle sausage or pepperoni slices on top. Top with cheese. Return to oven for 10 minutes. Let cool, then slice and serve

My friend sent me this today in an email, hope you enjoy, so very much truth in it.
The Weaver

My life is just a weaving
Between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors
He weaves so skillfully.

Sometimes He weaveth sorrow
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper
And I the underside.

Not 'til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Will God unroll the canvas
And explain the reasons why-

The dark threads are as needful,
In The Weaver's skillful hands
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.

~B.M. Franklin~

The lily is very pretty. Now you will know where to look for eggs! We buy eggs from a local farmer. I love brown eggs. The recipe sounds delicious and easy to make .. another one I added to my Barbara's Bakin N Bits recipe collection :-)

Hey my S.Ga Sister!

Love your lily, love Esther the wandering hen and look forward to luvin' the bow tie pizza recipe!!

I know I've told you this before, but each time I visit your site I get real homesick for the South! But, I guess I'll just get my southern charm fix through Bakin N Bits since it's hard to find in Arizona! Oh, I saw in your last post that you used to live in Jax. We lived there for years and moved to AZ from there. We still consider Jax home....our daughter and her husband are stationed there and we visit every chance we get. Small world isn't it!!

Enjoy some sweet tea for me today! Oh, and how 'bout some fried okra and fried chicken (not Esther!), biscuits and gravy! lol!!.....and peach cobbler...., etc., etc.!!

Hi Barb - your lily is a beautiful color - that's my favorite color of purple/deep pink. And your recipe sounds wonderful. I would only need to get a few things at the grocery store to make it. You blog such practical and cheap recipes that are delicious. I've had a lot of people comment on my blog after I posted your Blueberry Dump Cake recipe. So thanks so much for passing that recipe along to us. God Bless you southern-sister. As I've mentioned, I have lived in KY since 1988, and am from SW OH originally where many of the residents have KY roots, as I do - so I now consider myself a southern gal. I absolutely love the south. Take care, from KY.

Love your lily, Barbara. The color is so pretty.

I didn't know that chickens laid their eggs in other places.... Of course, I've never been around chickens.... Hope the eggs are good... How would you know??? Guess you have to crack them open...

Thanks for the recipe... Looks YUMMY.

Nice poem.

I spend time each week it seems looking for the nest of a hen that gets out. Sometimes I get a surprise though when they show up with baby chicks. And thank you for another great recipe! I think I will fix it for supper one night this week

The lily is pretty but Esther's nest is beautiful! What a neat job she did on making it.

I can't wait to try the Bowtie Pizza recipe.

Have a great day.
