How are you on this Friday the 13th? It is still grey here with a bit of drizzle, but tomorrow should be lovely (though much cooler). Yesterday it rained on and off pretty much all day. I ran out to get wine (necessity!!) and a few groceries and it was pretty miserable out there and the temp kept dropping.
Work was (again) busy (wonder when this will let up?) and I did not do any stitching. I did knit a few rows on the sock after dinner while Fletch read, but that was it. I did cook though. Dinner was:
A quiche with asparagus, onions, red pepper, bacon and swiss cheese. Yumsters!! Plus there are leftovers. And then last night I baked:
More cookies. These have dried blueberries, candied ginger, a bit of chocolate and a bit of oatmeal in them. Tasty!!
Colin and Mailing are coming for dinner Saturday so I thought we could have cookies for dessert along with homemade ice cream. I'm going to make one of my favorite ice creams - maple walnut. Dinner is going to be Quoc's Pork. Years and years ago when one of my brothers lived in Nassau Bay (outside of Houston, TX), we were visiting him and he threw a party. Quoc, a Vietnamese guy who worked with my brother, came and brought a pork loin to grill that had been marinating overnight. Oh my - so good. The recipe is easy. It is just a combination of Chinese Five Spice, Garlic, Lemon Grass, Salt (or Fish Sauce) and Pepper. You make slits in the meat and rub the spice mixture all over it and into the slits. Then you let is sit in the frig overnight before grilling. We have not made it in years, but all of us were thinking about it recently. I need to think of what to have to go with the meat. Maybe some grilled veggies.
Other than that, I have no plans for the weekend. I'd like to get out walking if the weather cooperates. And, of course, have time to knit and stitch.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend - enjoy!!
