First off, welcome and thank you to Amy from U Try.it for becoming a follower of my site!
It has rained here for at least 3 weeks. Straight. Going slightly mad with so much water, sloshing around in sneakers after walking the dogs, a field which is over-saturated...there is currently a mushroom growing fungus right in front of the house. That's bad.
We had two trees fall; one fell after being shoved, on purpose, and the other was just full of water after one of the latest downpours. We were watching a movie and heard a muffled thud. At least it didn't hit the house but it's going to be a bugger to move. I have the desire to help, the motivation to make things look nicer but the strength of a dachshund. Perhaps we will get inventive with rope and make a pulley to shift the weight of the rotten pine trees so they may be easily rolled.
This is not the tree....it's an example of the predicament we have. Big heavy tree, one man, one short woman, no other assistance :-) It could be worse. It could have hit the house.
So what else have we been doing besides sitting in and reading, watching a few movies, cooking? We have been to the range a few times. Made some plans to redo some of the rooms, change out bathroom fixtures, fix up a guest bedroom....we talk about these plans over a good meal and glass of wine. One can get carried away.
Here is that bowl meal I promised. A simple saute of garlic, green bell pepper, onions, Tuttorusso tomatoes and a good olive oil. On the table in under 15 minutes, promise.
If you don't want a vegetarian meal just add some shredded chicken or shrimp. Liberally douse with Parmesan cheese and pour a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. It's a comfort food....hope you enjoy it.
Oh my, I think the sun just peaked out! I better hurry if I want to enjoy it.
See you soon with some Italian recipes and our latest jaunt into Southern Georgia for ammo and a local meat processing market. Beef and pork from local farms. It was a successful trip to Jones Country Meats.
Creamy veg soup was inspired by necessity - the need for a hot lunch to carry to work. The ingredients were selected from a nearly bare...
There are days I just want to be at home. Sit in the den and read while Aja stares and casts judgement. I'm so ready to retire and I kn...
