Hi all, hope you're all well and keeping busy! Guess I get a "no cook" day today, as J is working late, so just sat down with a frozen margarita! Great idea, using frozen lime concentrate rather than bottled mix! Forgot to salt the rim, tho' dang it!! Yummmm... will have to watch these -- it's only 3:30pm here! Guess it's "happy hour!" Also knew before I began, that today is Tues., but that just didn't sound right! Another of my "fav" events, is to have an "Appetizer afternoon!"
Well, my hackles are back where they should be... at least till some one else decides to be totally uncouth! Guess there has to be a jerk now and then, so we appreciate the better times we share!
When I first decided to become a supporting member, and learned that I could write a blog, my thought immediately went to the movie "Julie and Julia," so I began checking some of the existing blogs, to get a "feel for peramaters" and decided that pretty much ANYTHING GOES here at AR! Of course, I do believe that most of us talk recipes, cooking habits, gadgets and gizmos, more than much else, but you know, some days there just isn't any food related juices flowing in my veins, so I just babble about just about anything that gets my attention! Face it, unless folk just don't eat ANY leftovers, there comes a time, when one has cooked, and cooked, and cooked some more, until it dawns on you that there's no room in the fridge for any more darn leftovers! I do toss more food than I like, but mostly as I can't remember how long a paticular dish has been sitting, waiting to be eaten... More than a week, I certainly can't remember! I've tried making a list each evening of what was prepared, but alas, I lose track of keeping that going, and sooner or later, the question arises, "has this been sitting here more than two weeks?" At that point, out comes the trash can, and I start dumping anything that I believe to be 1-2 weeks old! Trust! Food poisoning "ain't no fun!" There are exceptions, of course, I'm pretty picky about eating day old fish/seafood, and I'm sure if I could remember 5 mins ago, I could come up with a few other exceptions...!
So, haven't worked on the painting of my "new room," but I've been suffering with bouts of tendonitis, so an afternoon of that type of work, even sewing for a couple of hours, one or both of my fore arms flare up, and I've found by trial & error, it's best to give them a rest.
Anxiously awaiting more sunflowers to open, as my last cutting went bye-bye days ago, but I've no new flowers waiting to open - at least didn't yesterday! My "fav's" are Calle Lillies, but alas, try as I might, I do a GREAT job of killing them off in short order! At least the sunflowers are bright and cheery! and I can keep them alive long enough to produce at least one bloom per plant! Reminds me, should take a toddle out there with my next cocktail, and see how things are doing - do know that my herbs are going to seed, despite cutting the tops off occasionally.
So, friends, till next time, I guess I can be "crazy lazy!" as I do have the place to myself till about 9pm! TATA!
