Fergus turns 15 today!

Happy Birthday to my sweet old guy ... nope ... not Phil. My Fergus, and Yes I do mean "My Fergus". He turns 15 years old today. I say "My Fergus" because he's always been my baby. I picked him out from the litter when Phil was away at sea, and I brought him home while Phil was away at sea ... and spent many hours, just Fergus and I, while Phil was away at sea. I had Fergus home with me for a few weeks before Phil even met him, so Fergus has always been my special little pal.

1 small onion
salt & pepper
1 can vegtable soup
sliced raw potatoes

Mix hamburg, chopped onion, salt & pepper in casserole dish. Empty can of soup over meat. Fill remainder of dish with sliced potatoes, then pour 1 can of hot water over all. Bake at 350 for one hour.

I've been busy the past couple of weeks getting projects ready for Spring classes at work. I can't post pictures of these, as they are designs I make specifically for classes, but I will have some pictures on the weekend of some other things I am working on like some new purses, another stitchery project and some placemats and table topper I have started. While you're waiting ... enjoy the two new recipes.
