It’s colder, but it had been cold before. The difference, I think, is that the cold is here to stay. Here is today’s shot out the picture window!
Lately we’ve been adjusting to the time change and the darkness when we get home… we somehow feel the need to eat right away, even when it isn’t that late. The other day we decided the seaweed soup cuisine was the best quick meal we could have.
On other days, we are taking more time. Believe it or not, we still have a few tomatoes that were harvested green and are slowly turning red (and wrinkling) on our counter. I know – we could have wrapped each one in newspaper. We’ve done it in the past. This year, though, we were too lazy. Or something. I used most of those tomatoes to make chili. Then I picked up a few more apples off the ground and made muffins.
Eli arrived today for a visit of undetermined length. He was in need of comfort food, so I made the Mashed Potatoes and Chickpea Gravy from VWAV. It didn’t rate a photo because it’s pretty much beige-on-beige. Good, though!
I have been tagged by Bethany to answer / participate in a meme with "random factoids." Wow! I’ll do that tomorrow. Thanks, Bethany!
