On another subject, last night we went out to dinner with friends. It was the first time we had been out to dinner in about two months: a big change for us..and probably has contributed to my losing some weight. The food was outstanding, albeit not quite what we expected when we ordered the whole red snapper - LOL. This fellow does not look particularly cheerful, but neither would I in his situation.
It's soup weather, so I got busy late this morning. Don't ask me what kind of soup; it's SOUP. You know --
6 cups of water, a bone, can of tomatoes, onions, celery, garlic, cannellini beans, lentils, a hunk of parmesean cheese, salt, bay leaf, fennel seeds, oregano, thyme, and basil - both fresh and dried.
I don't measure, except for the water. I throw everything into the pressure cooker I have had since 1963 and after 20 minutes, it's soup. Stone soup? It's never the same twice - but this particular batch is better than usual. Don't you love the basil leaves? I'd consider a career as a food stylist if I weren't so sloppy.
Enough of a break. Back to stitching. Now that it is after 2:am, I have my second wind. Oh, dear.
