Today is Friday 19th November

Hello and good morning!
the sun is shining and it is an absolutely beautiful day here.  Once again we have a clear day and intend to walk up into town, have a coffee, and then come home. We don’t need any shopping, but it is too nice to stay in all morning, especially when the afternoons are so short and it’s dark here by 4pm.

Lunch today is going to be stew, and I remembered to soak the pulses overnight. We could have bought a stewpack for a pound yesterday but the swede was no bigger than a tennis ball, the two parsnips looked tired as did the five or six carrots, and the onion, well, I think it would make itself cry. We bought a lovely swede for 49p, a bag of parsnips for 40p, carrots were also 40p, and the bag of potatoes had some lovely big ones in it for jacket spuds. The surplus swede, parsnips and carrots will be frozen down ready for next time, so we’ve got value for money.

I confess the scales were angry with me this morning and practically yelled ‘GET OFF!’

My own fault of course, but the Nibbles and Munchies came to visit yesterday.

Have a good day everyone and keep safe.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hehe! So sorry to hear that your onion was so sad (hehe) but it sounds like you managed to get a good deal on the root veggies! Tomorrow is a busy day but I’m trying a recipe for mashed rutabagas (i.e.. swedes) if it is a hit, I’ll make some for Thanksgiving.
