Well, the weather has been absolutely horrible the past two days... definately not "shopping friendly," so alas, I avoided the grocery again today. I was out of bread, and darn near out of kitty crunchies, but managed only to sneak out for some beer...
Prior to jetting to my local convenience mart, I had taken out a loaf of (store bought) frozen bread dough, to let it rise... It wasn't till after I returned that I noticed the dog had eaten what cat food was out... and THEN realized that I should have picked
up a small bag while buying the beer! DAMNG! What to do?
Meanwhile, the pressure canner arrived, so I took some time to skim thru the booklet - I've NEVER used a pressure cooker or canner before! So, I pulled out the rib roast to let it thaw for tomorrow... I NEED the bones! I baked the loaf of bread dough along
with some (store bought ) cookie dough, shoved the l/o stuffed peppers in to reheat, and finally decided that the kitties might just eat some fish if I cooked it... so it went into the oven also. Deni had also shared some "free" brown and serve rolls that
needed to be baked, so they too went into the oven! I'm not used to having 3 timers going at once, but that's about the way it all went!
So, all being well, the sun will at least show it's face tomorrow, as I need to get cat food, lids for canning jars... talk about an afterthought! Oh, and a loaf of bread! Come Friday, I do believe I'll be making beef broth, and doing some more baking...
I'm dying to make reindeer poops and peppermint bark, but alas, I feel that I should hold off till late next week... I'd prefer not to freeze or refrigerate chocolate.
I probably should also think about putting up a second and perhaps third tree... J's been pretty much the grinch, but may well begin working again (at LONG last) come Monday! Might help a tad with the "mood" around here!
Will I be ready by this time next week? Probably not... but then, I will still have a few days to play with!
So, be well all, and don't let the holiday "crazies" get to you too much! (Just crazy enough!)
