Early morning errand and trees were still glistening with ice.
No trip to town in 5 days
and like to keep a well stocked pantry.
Also just needed to be around civilization
I hurry back to the woods....
Lunch of tomato soup
and the only way to serve
is with Basil and Dill. Tonight when I finish
I will add some Parsley, Chives and Cilantro
which the freeze did not destroy.
Also melted cheese on wonderful bread,
some black pepper chips
and the best olives that are marinated
in olive oil and spices.
Just finished making 2 simple deserts that
had not been made in a while.
Lime and Lemon Jello with an addition
of crushed pineapple, cottage cheese and sweetened condensed milk
in past have put an addition of nuts - but not this time.
Also chilling is a mixture of cream cheese, whipped cream, some confectionery sugar
and vanilla, poured over a few crushed Oreo cookie crumbs.
Will top this with my last carton of strawberries and some blueberries.
Doing this instead of the suggested canned pie filling.
Tomorrow will take my last small carton of frozen turkey from the holidays and make
chili with white beans, onion, carrot, celery, cumin and an addition of cilantro.
So set for food for this warmer weekend
and if it is not to muddy
I will venture outside....
