A Good Day For Cooking

It got up to 73° by 2:30 pm yesterday afternoon and I had the house open while Brad was gone to his appointment. He insisted that there was no need for me to go with him since he would be waiting for a bit until he was ready to leave. In the end it didn’t take as long as he thought and he ran errands on his way home.

I started the crock pot with seasoned chopped carrots, new potatoes and celery on the bottom and seasoned split chicken breasts on top. I like to use Adobo seasoning on my chicken with a little black pepper.

I also started a pot of my Southwest Soup with browned ground beef, chopped red onion, chopped yellow and red bell pepper, canned sweet corn, diced tomatoes, and black beans and topped it off with a quart of water. I seasoned the ground beef with chipotle chili pepper, fresh ground salt, fresh ground black pepper and garlic powder. The kitchen smelled wonderful for the rest of the day. I had to take the lid off the soup pot to get the photo and I think the lens on my camera got a little steam on it.

The box at the post office was full and there were other packages that wouldn’t fit so Brad came home loaded down. In the pile was this…

It came wrapped in tissue and autographed on the fly leaf by the little turd himself!

I had bought the e-book from him a couple of years ago but my old Kindle wouldn’t play nice and I couldn’t read it so this is much better. Love me a little Sci Fi.

Having the house open and the breeze blowing was so nice and I was serenaded by the neighbor’s rooster! I didn’t hear the other neighbor’s donkeys though. The fridge and pantry are well stocked, I’m caught up with laundry and it’s only Tuesday! Way to go, me! We’ll be heading to the chiropractor later and I’ll see about stopping to look at a new TENS unit. The extra electrode patches that Brad ordered online arrived so we are well stocked with those.

Hope your Tuesday is a blessed one, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
