Feverishly cooking our way through Sandy. GG made beef stew and egg noodles. We just stuffed acorn squash with onions, garlic, zucchini, ground turkey, parmesan and ricotta and will serve it with a brown rice/ black barley/ daikon radish seed pilaf.
I know, I know, we're such hippies.
I'm rolling the idea of pumpkin muffins around in my head but don't know if near hurricane conditions allow me to break the ban on eating sugar.
And if the power goes out?
Not sure. We picked up a couple of cans of sterno and figure we can rig up a heat and eat station. We are our own caterers.
I also have a pot of espresso made and ready to drink.
It seems so odd to think of the government shut down, airports closed, no buses or metro running. Guess they want us all to stay home, huh?
Unfortunately with the government closed there is no early voting in Maryland or DC today or tomorrow.
And we all know every vote counts.
Thank all of you who came to FITH and than invited us to your house. It was a great distraction and I got to go to Australia and see a bowl of lilacs, all purple and beautiful, just sitting there screaming spring.
Thanks. I needed that.
And before I go, in case you were wondering what the kittens have been doing to help in our time of worry and stress.
Cleaning the bathtub.
And hanging the new liners.
And we need new liners why?
Maybe cause they liked to hang on the old ones.
We have just lost power once and the light are flickering away.........gotta run.
