What I Did Last Week

It rained all last week. All the days long and most of the nights. And me laid out flat with the flu. I still had to slog my way outside each day to feed the horse and dogs, letting them know they were still loved. Slogging in the rain with the flu - that was fun. No cooking, little eating, just me wrapped in a blanket with a cup of herbal tea, feeling sorry for myself.

'Round about Friday afternoon, as I began to feel better, I made applesauce. Which was fun.

On Saturday I made some really delicious beans then yesterday I roasted several butternut squashes and stuffed them with the beans. Fun and very good but not very photogenic.

Right now there's lamb stew on the stove.

The mojo returneth. Recipes to follow.

Oh, and the sun came out.

Oh, dear. I really meant to include the photos the first time.

  1. So happy the mojo returneth! Beans stuffed in butternut squashes - sounds just right!
    Glad things are looking better for you. Sick is just so not good.

  2. I want the lamb stew with some crusty bread and a bowl of the applesauce for myself. I'm not sharing :)

  3. Good to hear you're feeling you can make yourself some chicken soup!

  4. Robert checked the weather in Humboldt while we were in Italy, so I know it rained a lot. I am glad you got over the flu: not a nice way to spend some rainy days, certainly. Hope to see you at the market the first Saturday of November (we will be packing the house between now and then).

  5. Glad you're feeling much better. I like all the meals you made especially the applesauce.


  6. Hope you are feeling a lot better now.

  7. Thanks so much, all of you. I am all recovered and cooking again. Posts coming soon.
