Dinner at DD's
Sunday, April 18, 2010      4 comments

Yesterday afternoon we had thunder and rain. Typical spring weather but a nice change, everything looks fresh, there are white woolly clouds on the hills on the opposite side of the lake this morning. The only downside is going to be the mud not... Read more
Stocking my freezer
Friday, April 16, 2010      5 comments

This week I have made several meals in batches and then portioned out in in individual portions for my freezer. It feels good to have a stocked freezer again. We'll still eat as much fresh as possible but it's good to have meals on stand by. ... Read more
High altitude cooking
Thursday, April 15, 2010      4 comments

After cooking at sea level on a gas cooker for 4 months, being back at 6500ft and getting used to my electric cooker again has been an adjustment. At sea level everything is done sooo much faster and I need to get my mind around starting l... Read more
Cats calling friends?
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      7 comments

Last summer our cats "invited" a stray to come eat with them. Our "welfare" boys (as DH calls them) obviously didn't mind sharing what was given freely to them. The newcomer was a beautiful male tabby and eventually acquired the name Toby as t... Read more

Weigh-in after traveling
Friday, April 09, 2010      4 comments

Traveling always puts on some weigh and this morning I was 145.3 so this little roadtrip was good for 1-1/2 pounds. Not too bad really considering I've had some really nice food on the way. Not sure if the 7000ft difference in altitude has an e... Read more
