Florida is late to the game with an order of Safer-at-Home. Really? Safer and not STAY at home? I fear it will cost people dearly having left beaches open for Spring break and not telling folks to stay home. Well, we are home and plan to stay in place as long as possible. We have food and while it might get down to interesting meal plans, we will eat.
My poor planning has us with only 4 bottles of wine....yeah....
Restaurants are closed but you can still get take-away meals. We only picked up pizza and Chinese in the past so...now we adapted our movie/take-away night using Trader Joe's Orange chicken.
We had a bag of the frozen orange chicken handy (sob- last one at home) and some stir fry veggies. Doug made the last of the pot stickers too and with a side of Tamari we were in business.
Takeaway night means a tray, a movie and a bottle of Beaujolais. Aja gets a peanut butter stuffed Kong. The Martian was great even though we'd seen it before. Love Matt Damon.
We had soups this past month. A chicken taco chili soup and red lentil soup.
Our sweet girl Aja (pronounced ASIA - yeah we are Steely Dan fans), she is always in the kitchen snuffling about.
We have been able to eat outside the kitchen quite a bit as the weather has been very nice. Here is another patio meal with grilled cheese on sourdough and tomato soup. Can't beat that combo.
We started a fire early last night, just couldn't wait until dark. Drinks by the fire, treats for Aja.
Last but not least we have been doing reading, movie watching, walking and this morning Doug was able to get his solar telescope out. It was great, we had a blast even though it was only for a short period of time.
He showed me a prominence on the sun that looked like a huge triangle, like a pyramid. It was so much larger than Earth...hard to wrap your head around the dimensions. I was always a nervous Nellie about looking at the sun but have since come around with all the safety features. I love it.
That's it for me in North Florida. Sherry said it was fine to talk about non kitchen happenings so here you have it. We are well, so far so good! I hope everyone else is doing well and know we are all in the same shape trying to find toilet paper, lol.
