Friday I met my daughter Beth half way to the big city. Helped me as it is increasingly very tiring
for me to make the trip into Nashville and back to the country on my own (can do it - but this is better.) I drove as I go a special way and my children drive the interstate - which I do not like. We went onward and was able to make
quick stops along the way. First the bakery I like and bought Sour Dough and Tuscan bread. Had them slice, double wrap and will put some in freezer. I eat very little bread except if something like this on hand and brings back memories of years ago when I made sour dough bread
Next stop the Army Surplus store, have been stopping at this store for many years for some quality
items that I do not see in store. Inside this home I go barefoot most of the time, this time of year my feet
stay cold and wanted some really warm socks with the little things on the bottom to keep me from slipping
on finished floor, I found some, nice and thick, reasonable price, all I have seen in stores
have been so thin. Also bought another pair of long underwear :) seems with cold weather
arriving these are great (now never in the past with all of my pretty gowns on hand :)
Next stop wanted to make a quick trip into Trader Joe's, A few different items purchased
and they have the best price on Manuka Honey from New Zealand. I read about this honey
several years ago and it is suppose to heal everything imaginable plus be so good for you
Less expensive at T.J's then Amazon. Still pricey at $10,99 for 8 ounce jar, but if it does
what it says it is suppose to do - this one may have some quality years left on this planet.
Also, I like good cheese and they carry some that is not at my local market.
Next on to the a special new restaurant that Beth and G/G like. Now it is only a little bigger then my
bedroom, very small and Asian food. A line outside, so knew it must be special and in about 8 minutes we found a table. I usually like this type of food but after arriving home
after this birthday meal with my Beth - I was sick all night... and still not quite normal.
I do so well with my food, love to cook, and really like my food the best :) but my Beth I wanted to spend time with her on her
birthday and this was choice for her birthday meal.
So onward home, very tired, drinking an Ensure as I traveled down the road to my special
place by the woods.
Saturday - I made chicken soup, chopped chicken breast, carrot, onion, celery, very small potato, parsnip and
chicken broth, always remember my Laurie's motherinlaw makes the best chicken soup
with her homemade Matzo balls I have tried to make them but not successful. An addition
of a small can of chicken broth with 3 Matzo balls (so good and pleased I discovered this product
a few years ago.) Also an addition of a very small handful of pasta. Special warming my
sour dough bread and dipped in olive oil....
Soup so good, yesterday, today (Sunday) also tomorrow and freeze a carton.
A damp, cloudy and sprinkling rainy day. This has been a good day to sit still (but still did a lot)
and read N.Y. Times, drink coconut water, discovered a new one with an addition
of pineapple - so good, some yogurt to try and settle what is going on in my system.
Enough shared :)
