Woke up this morning to a winter wonderland. Darn. Don't get me wrong, it's so pretty but it's cold, when it melts when you live on a gravel road it's muddy. Did I mention it is cold! 2 days ago I had my light jacket on. Now it is back to my winter jacket.
Yesterday. I had a billiant idea. Lets go to all flea markets in town and I can get the cookbook at one of them. We hit 3 flea markets and 2 goodwells. I got 2 sweaters and a nice peice of Floraline McCoy pottery for a dollar! Now isn't this a lovely piece. Look at the glazing and this has a heft to it common of McCoy. Warm earth colors this is just pretty. Love good pottery and very affordable. The floraline is starting to become more collectable I thinkb because of its nice crisp lines and heavy glazing. What is great is that you can still pick it up for a reasonable price.
I am trying to think of what to make for supper tonight. With the snow a chili sounds really good to me but when I mentioned it to my husband I didn't get much feedback so I am not sure. I have fish and ground turkey on hand so my choices are limited. He also bought some cabbage rolls but I am not sure what is in them. I am afraid it is white rice. He could eat it with Dan and I'll have more soup. For some reason my soup, while good, was weird. I soaked the beans all night and then cooked them on low in the crock pot for 9 hours and they were firm. Not hard, just firm. Weird. The soup was good though and very pretty. I blew it last night and had a cookie. I am getting tired of the same things for snacks and with my income right now it is limited what I can make. I tried the ricotta dessert and it was gaggy. Does anyone really like it? I might try the peanut butter cookies. I can limit myself to one without any problems.
