I am enjoying a warm house today. I just went shopping and got a bunch of vegetables, mostly root veggies, brought them home and chopped them and put them with the beef I got in the crock pot. Tonight we'll have a nice stew for dinner. I am looking forward to that. It will also be nice to have dinner ready for my daughter when she gets home from work.
No Jan, I did not move out, just came down to Vancouver to visit with my daughter's family through Christmas. I came early so that I didn't get trapped by the snow. I used to like snow, but nowadays it is like a prison for me. I can't walk in it and I can't drive if it is over an inch deep. Well I can drive, I just can't get in and/or out of my driveway, which has a sharp though small hill.
It is raining very hard here in Vancouver and there is some wind, so it is really nice to stay inside and do some cooking. When I went out I very quickly new that my knee was not happy with the weather, but I wasn't going to let that stop me today. So I am limping about, but I am moving and that is somewhat better than usual.
My daughter has a pile of books and magazines she is planning to dispose of. I looked through it and discovered a Better Homes and Gardens Diabetic Living magazine. I was amazed to see so many really interesting recipes. There was a section on Ethnic recipes and I want to try a couple of those recipes as soon as I can obtain the ingredients. The Eskimo recipe calls for Arctic Char which I think I will have to find at a fish market. That fish is to be placed on top of pickled beets and carrots. The picture looks delicious. Now I have to try it.
There is also a recipe for Garlic-Cashew Chicken that has a wealth of veggies and it looks so inviting I hope that I will be able to get those ingredients so that I can share with everyone here.
One of my grandsons just left for a wrestling tournament in Pasco. He won't be back until Saturday evening. The other has plans to "hang-out" with his friends this afternoon. I will for a few hours be alone here. I hope to get some dishes done and finish my laundry before my daughter gets home. Right now though I am tired and I think given the fact that I need to take something for the pain in my knee, I will take a nap. It is so relaxed here, I had almost forgotten what that feels like.
See you later,
