One: I had my semi-annual visit with my dermatologist. She only had to burn off a few spots, but OW. I'm good for another 6 months though and that's good.
Two: Earlier this week I wanted to use up some left-over hamburger meat so I made a pot of chile. In order to make it I opened a couple of cans of kidney beans. The problem was that one of the cans wasn't chile beans, they were cannellini beans. So I put them in the refrigerator and the next day I used them to try a new recipe, Tuscan bean soup. I got the recipe online, tweaked it to fit out taste (used potatoes instead of squash, didn't put it in a blender and make it smooth) and used the cannellini beans. It was delicious.
Three: While this was cooking Mac said it would sure be good to have some crusty bread to go with it. Well it so happened that I had a mix for crusty Italian bread sticks. So I whipped some up and they did go well with the soup.
Four: Number four is a bit strange. It happened while I was making the bread. I mixed it and kneaded it in a bowl on one counter and then transferred it to a board on another counter to roll out the dough. Suddenly while I was rolling the dough, the bowl---a favorite of mine that I'd brought back from Spain---jumped off the other counter and broke. I was so upset, loved that bowl. I have a bigger version of it, but this one was perfect. Don't know what happened, I've always said this house has a poltergeist.
|I was working on the counter on the right, the bowl was on the counter on the left, they weren't anywhere near each other.|
