Hey folks, it's either day 26 or 27 of my freezer experiment and I think we'll last through the month of November - partly because we'll be gone a week. But, we've moved into soup mode around here. Cold weather, inactivity and just plain laziness are all to blame. Oh well. If we pamper ourselves with large gastronomical displays plated on my good china (ha, ha!) every day will we accept anything less? Better to eat plain and simple now. Goes along with the theory "if you've never had it, you don't miss it."
In the past week we've had homemade chicken noodle soup, pea soup, and stew - each twice; and tonight its double tomato soup (a can of tomato soup and jar of home canned tomatoes mixed together with a can of water and some sale and pepper). Lunch had been a mishmash: grilled cheese, tuna, or peanut butter sandwiches and a couple times breakfast was later than usual so I just served a bit more of it and called it brunch!
I've got a taste for waffles again and usually serve them on Sundays. But, what the heck, maybe I'll mix it up and have breakfast for supper tomorrow.
Supposed to be in the 50's and sunny here tomorrow so we'll be outside taking care of last minute projects. No need for a wood fire then and I'm stingy with the propane so there won't be a meal simmering on either stove.
Ah......life is easier if you let it be. Treesong
