It's Almost Ten O'clock in My Kitchen

It's almost 10 o'clock in my kitchen and what do I see?

I'm having a late night...

Chicken alfredo on the stovetop...

Gingerbread baking in the oven for tomorrow's "Titus Tea"...

Dishes waiting in the sink to be washed...

Yogurt in the crock pot...

Buttermilk forming in jars on the counter top...

Oh!  The gingerbread's ready!

And now, after a break I have to clean up, for no one wants to awaken to a messy kitchen in the morning!

Linked to:


  1. Have a wonderful Titus Tea my friend!
    It sounds like it will be a real blessing.
    Your gingerbread looks delicious :-)

  2. We were in the kitchen late last night as well. 19 half pints of strawberry jam are now resting on the counters!! Today I have blueberries to freeze and can, peaches to freeze and can, pinto beans to can and I am going to try to can beef tips in mushroom gravy. Busy day....if I can quit sneezing this morning!

  3. Wow, how exciting! I have yet to make jam but maybe one day. Hope you can bypass all the sneezing!

  4. Oh yes we sure do! I get about 7 or 8 bunches a week and always get asked if I'm making banana read or what lol.

  5. Mrs.Q, what a busy night. I don't know how you do it all. I admire you. I hope you have a very enjoyable tea.

  6. You are a busy Mrs. Q! Everything looks delightful. Its so good to see you here. I have been in & out of the blogging world, but I try to get on & do a little blogging here & there. You know my thing is FB ;)

    blessings, my friend

  7. The Late Night Bug! Oh I love seeing what is going on in another's kitchen! It encourages me to set some bread to rise this morning. We are looking towards a cold damp day - so I'll also need to stoke the fire up a bit to provide a nice rising spot. Thanks for the encouragement!

  8. Good Morning!

    What exactly is a Titus Tea? It sounds like something I'd love to have at my house:)

  9. Can you tell me how you make yogurt in a crockpot?

    I used to heat milk over the stove and measure the temp with a candy thermometer and the candy thermometer broke. Do you need one for your method?

  10. looks wonderful!
    Oh those ole dishes...they just keep a coming. We are blessed to have dishes.

    God bless,

  11. I am busy, Patrizia! It is good to see you here too~I've been wondering when you would come and visit ;)

    I'm glad I encouraged you to get baking in the kitchen, pebblekeeper. It is good to see others busy with homemaking, isn't it?

    Michelle, hello~It is what our ladies are calling our tea time together (I think it will be once a month with our church ladies). We have ladies of all different ages, married and unmarried, and they decided that it would be a good name for it so we can be an encouragement to one another and help each other learn as in Titus 2. For our first meeting we watched Tea with Michelle Duggar.

    Mrs. A~I will be happy to tell you, but it's a bit long to explain in a comment. I plan on making a post for it. There is no candy thermometer needed for my method!

  12. And that gingerbread was wonderful! And healty too ;-) I'd love the recipe Emily! Tracy

  13. Deanna~we ARE blessed to have dishes (need to remember that!) though they never end.

    Tracy~thank you I'm glad you liked it! I will send you the recipe :)

  14. Mrs Q, I'm so glad you linked this up to LACE today, my friend!
    The crockpot yoghurt sounds very interesting, indeed.
    And I trust your Titus Tea was a success and blessing for you all :-)

  15. Hi Mrs.Q,
    What a buzy night you had! Hope everyone appreciated the clean kitchen in the morning.

    God Bless

  16. It was wonderful, Trish and yes, Barb, a busy night indeed!
