You girls, and your food...making me hungry. We are having chicken, tomato and fried cabbage and onions...yum
Went to visit with Mom. DD went with me. We first had to stop and buy Mom some pajamas and socks...then take them over there. between the two of us, we had a lot of errands to make.
finished the baby beau sweater. Turned out really cute Started a new sweater. I think I have enough gold yarn for 3 baby sweaters. The one I just started will be number 2. I'm not fond of the gold color, and want to use it up pronto.
It seems as if we are living on lamb these days. Today we will have leftover lamb stew. I haven't figured out what to put with it. Perhaps a sandwich? What filling for a sandwich. I am burned out on cheese right now, meat isn't appropriate because there is plenty of meat in the stew. We could do an egg salad, or maybe just skip the sandwiches and have a salad with out soup. That sounds pretty good after all.
I still have some of the spinach that had mint in it. Jules, my current caregiver, likes to put fruit in salads and there are sliced strawberries in the frig. I wouldn't mind a nice slice or two of french bread with that combination. I have been buying Italian Bread lately. It tastes similar to my french bread, but the loaves are a different shape.
I used to get hard rolls for that special taste, but I can't find really good ones anymore. I need to talk with the people in the bakery where I buy my groceries and see if they can make those wonderful hard rolls for me. I don't eat a lot of bread, so when I do get some I want it to be special. It is so important that te flavor and texture be just right. I also like to have either poppy seeds or sesame seeds on those rolls. I can't decide which one I like better.
I hope you are having a good day today. Do you have your gardens in yet? I know that in the mid-west the temperatures have been especially high, what is that doing to your garden planning. Lettuce would bolt at those temperatures. Does anyone have Sugar Snap Peas growing? I love them. I could use them in so many recipes. I have to quit thinking about food for a while. I'll talk with you again later.
Good Morning. It is a beautiful day here. Rain maybe tomorrow. 61 down town but at our house it is 66 with warm sun and a little breeze.
DH and I were doing errands this morning. A stop at the Mail Bank and then my very favorite store (not) Home Depot. DH wants DD friend, the plumber to replace 50 year old faucet in my 1/2 bath. Then we dropped off my serger at the sewing store for them to give it a check up and re thread it for me. I went to stitch up a seam last week and the thread broke and even with the book I could not thread the darn thing. It doesn't get used much so a check up will be good for it.
Then off to the local food bank to drop off some stuff and darn if DH didn't forget something at Home Depot so back there on the way home. I ran in the Party City store that is close by. My lady bridge friends say Party City is a great place for greeting cards. Boy is it ever. I think I only paid 1/2 price for them. DH has a birthday coming up.
My kitchen smells so good. I have a Yukon Potato and Cheese Soup in the crock pot. I'm not sure my potatoes are Yukon but they are yellow. I told DH to pick up a 5# bag at the commissary and these are the ones he got. I think they say Ca. Gold. They'll work. The recipe doesn't say to puree the soup but I may puree part of it. It does call for 1/2 and 1/2 Cream but I'll use 1/2 and 1/2 f/f that I have in the freezer. Maybe we'll have corn bread with the soup or maybe tuna sandwiches.
