I have a friend...her name is Ellen.
I again marvelled as we left Greg and Ellen's home how God blessed me with the amazing friendship of the girls of Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
Ellen is our American and because of that she is a bit of a novelty...
is it okay to say that?
I never had American friends before I started blogging.
Now I have more than I can list and would be afraid to leave anyone out.
Jill was the first American blogging friend I had and even she has visited Jill's house.
The idea of it made me happy.
We parked our RV at a RV park quite close to Greg and Ellen's and on Sunday morning they showed up and we hopped in their car because we were going to go out for breakfast together.
The best surprise was that they took us to their home.
pull out your Mennonite Girls Can Cook book and turn to page 24.
Ellen made her authentic Russian Blintzes for us and let me tell they are all she claims them to be and then some.
I was so happy to get a tour because as you all know in blog land we want to know what we don't see behind the scenes.
You wouldn't know for instance that this is where Ellen sits when she blogs.
Now ...you do.
Ellen is our tablescape artist specialist and when you see the photos in the new book and admire our table...you will see Ellen's gift at making a table beautiful.
Her book was sitting on her counter...
I took a photo of her blintzes and the recipe...
and it made me smile.
I have so very much to be thankful for and marvel again at the abundant blessings of the relationships I have in my life.
Thank you Ellen for sharing your love and your heart and your time with me.
all for now...
