It really does. First thing this morning I made a big pot of Chile, part for tomorrow's lunch and part to freeze. When that was done I started work on Lamb Shanks, they'll be today's lunch. Braise the shanks, remove, cook carrots, onions and garlic, put the shanks back in, add chicken stock, red wine, rosemary and thyme. Then let it bubble for a couple of hours before you serve it over mashed potatoes. You can smell it all over the house.
Washed the slipcover for the couch and realized I couldn't throw it in the dryer, it's line dry only and because it's going to rain off and on all day I can't hang it outside, so Mac took it upstairs to hang in the attic, probably take 2 days there. Which means we'll probably destroy the couch while it's gone.
Skyped with our daughter this morning, always look forward to our Sunday morning chats. Except for the fact that Miss Kitty crawls all over my desk and rubs up against the computer, knock things in the floor, gnaws on my hand--gently of course--and anything else she can think of to distract me. She hates for me to Skype or talk on the phone. She tolerates the computer, sitting her fine, furry rear on on router, but doesn't appreciate other forms of communication. We usually end up throwing her out of the room.
Tried to watch Despicable Me 3 this weekend, it was bad, bad, bad and we didn't finish it. Loved the first one, was ok with the 2nd, but the 3rd says it's time to end the franchise.
We're really enjoying the 3rd series of The Detectorists, watching it slowly because Mackenzie Crook says there'll be no more. Mac has been investigating places in England where you can spend a couple of day metal detecting, wouldn't that be great.
Hope you're having a good weekend.
