I was gone for 3 days attending a family wedding in Phoenix. When I came home, I brought a nasty sinus infection back with me. Not sure what I was thinking there…Anyway, today is the first day I have actually felt good in almost 2 weeks. So of course, I spent the day in the kitchen! Well, not all of it. 🙂 But since it was stormy and rainy it seemed like the thing to do.
Dinner menu for tonight:
Beef and Vegetable Soup
Cracked Wheat French Bread
Lemon Poundcake with home canned peaches. Yummy!
Right now the soup is in the crockpot, the poundcake is in the oven and the bread is rising on the cabinet. Wow my house smells good. I’m so glad I can smell again!
I’m not sure if Beowulf and the Village People survived my unintentioned neglect, though. Right now Beowulf (my sourdough starter) has been newly fed and is snuggled up to the crockpot. And the Village People (my water kefir grains–there’s a lot of them and they look funny 🙂 ) have been submerged in a fresh batch of sugar water in hopes of having a lemon-lime soda-y beverage soon. I’ve only gotten one batch of water kefir so far–hope these Village People aren’t a one-hit-wonder…Y-M-C-A…But I digress…
Things are slowly getting back to normal, although I haven’t had the energy to tackle the bathrooms yet. Maybe tomorrow?
What’s on your menu tonight?
