It was a pretty sunrise this morning - lots of oranges and strong pinks. And it is warmer this morning too - 28 degrees F. Mailing is flying home this morning so we will get to see her this week. Looking forward to that. She will be working locally for the week and then going back to Austin.
So how was your weekend? Mine was filled with cooking. Saturday I made curried shrimp chowder for dinner. To go with that I baked a loaf of bread - white and buckwheat flour which turned out very well. Sunday I cooked all day! I made multigrain pancakes for breakfast. We had bananas that were going to go bad quickly, so I baked a couple of loaves of banana bread - with the addition of pecans and dried cranberries.
One loaf is now in the freezer, but we had some last night and it is tasty! Lunch was deviled eggs and stuffed mushrooms.
Some of the eggs have capers on them. Two (for me) have pickled jalapenos. Yum!!
Thankfully dinner did not need to be cooked. I had taken a container of chili out of the freezer and we had that along with a salad.
I managed to do a little stitching, a little knitting (though the knitting was ALL backwards - meaning it ALL was ripped back) and a little reading. Nothing earth shattering, but a pleasant weekend. My back continues to heal nicely and I'm still not using any muscle relaxers.
A little later I will head to the office. I have some things I want to print in color and I'll check the mail. I will be home before lunch time! And maybe I can take a short walk today. I would love that.
Cheers to the week ahead - make it a good one!
