My two days off from work and away from the computer were WONDERUFL! Just what the doctor ordered. Yes, I missesd catching up with all of you and letting you know what I was doing, but it was SO good to not turn on the computer. (I will be paying for that later work-wise...but so what!)
There was no stitching done and only a very little knitting. I did manage to read some. Also, I wrapped gifts that need to be shipped out (and boxed them up). Only a little bit more to be done in that department. I did do a lot of cooking! One night I made a Quiche Lorraine. I did add some kale and spinach along with mushrooms and onions.
Fletch loves apple fritters, but is always complaining about how there are so few apple pieces in the ones he buys. Yesterday morning when I got up, I baked him some apple fritter bread! I'm sorry I forgot to take a picture of the loaf, but the house smelled wonderful and the bread turned out pretty well too. I used THIS RECIPE but did not put the glaze on it. An easy and simple recipe that turned out tasty.
After baking the bread, I ran out to get my haircut. And, it was snowing!! At first just flurries and then it was coming down like crazy and was so pretty. Nothing stuck around and by the afternoon it was over, but it was lovely to see the snow.
With snow in the air, it seemed like the perfect day to make some soup for dinner. I had everything in the frig and on my pantry shelves to make Curried Shrimp and Potato Chowder.
This is another very easy recipe that I have made a lot. If anyone is interested in the recipe, let me know and I will e-mail it to you. Again, plenty left over for lunches and/or another dinner. During dinner we listened to one of my favorite CDs for the Season:
And now my friends, it is back to the grind for moi. My work in-box is showing a ton of new emails (hoping that many can just be deleted...), so I'd best hop to it.
Have a great Thursday!
