Day 292: Stew part two

For lunch I had some frozen shrimp and Matt had noodles and cottage cheese. I was going to heat up a small marinated pork loin I had taken out of the fridge and slice that up for sandwiches but it was still partially frozen.

For dinner we had leftover stew and added a packet of parboiled farro to it to bulk it up a bit. It was tasty but next time I want to make a stew with potatoes! They are my favorite part and Matt left them out. I had pictured us eating it over mashed potatoes but he had made biscuits instead. It was good to use up the farro though, it had been a special at Aldi that I hadn’t had before so I had been wondering if they were any good. I normally get the them at Target but this was just as good. It’s a really easy way to add grains to soup.

Mitzi is really maturing! She understands cuddling and isn’t trying to nibble on my fingers much. The girls both loved the llamas I bought them for Christmas.

My loom from an Etsy store still hasn’t arrived. It was supposed to be here almost 20 days ago. I actually ordered a second smaller one from Blick last week and I’m hoping that will arrive soon since it shipped via FedEx and I paid $3 extra for home delivery. I’m starting to lose momentum! I bought the online class and watched it weeks ago now. Hopefully I really will like weaving! Winter is so boring I thought it would be nice to do especially around the holidays but I think it will be January before either show up!

We worked on our NYE menu and watched some of La Forêt on Netflix which has one of the actors from the Agatha Christie show in it. I wonder if he is from Northern France because both shows take place there. Or lives there now.!
