I picked up some books I requested at my (open!) library so I stopped by my favorite bakery and got doughnuts and smearcase.
I missed doughnuts so much! The woman behind the counter said it was good to see me and we talked about our vaccination.
Matt made tuna salad for lunch so we had sandwiches and chips.
For dinner we had the leftover ham (just a few bites, really), leftover collards (with parboiled wild rice mixed in) and made corn muffins.
We watched the new Murdoch on Acorn. It’s been action packed with old storylines this year. I wonder if people who they worked with before felt better about coming back during the pandemic? I know showing flashbacks must mean a lot less time on set so maybe that is it?
Today we went to pick up a Hoosier cabinet I found on Facebook outside of the city. It was weird talking to a stranger! It was a very peppy retired man who told me he was vaccinated. The new small talk! Unfortunately the whole thing didn’t fit in my car (or half in Matt’s like we hoped) so we had to go back. It looks cute in place!
For lunch we made lobster salad with the leftover lobster tails. So fancy! I got them at Costco so it was a big pack of them so it made a lot of salad.
Then for dinner we went in the opposite direction and had leftover rotisserie chicken and mushrooms over mi goreng. High-low.
We watched a movie about the 1970 Miss World completion which wasn’t bad (Misbehavior, Netflix DVD) but a little flat.
For lunch I had some oil packed tuna with capers and leftover olive bread.
Our pughuahua didn’t feel well so I had to run to the store to get some chicken breast for her meals so I picked up some other groceries we were short on. Stores still don’t seem quite right and they don’t seem to carry my favorite sherbet any more!
For dinner I heated up our leftover pot roast and served it over egg noodles, finished off the cauliflower kugel too.
Watched the latest episode of Meurtres à… it wasn’t the best one! My French is really improving though!
I don’t know if it is me or the vaccine but I have slept very soundly and been very fatigued this week. Hours are flying by and I don’t know what I did all day.
For lunch I made myself a egg sandwich on some naan I had picked up at Aldi. It was good, I did two eggs sunny side up and then flipped them yolk side together so they fit on the bread. Matt had noodles and cottage cheese again. He’s back on egg noodles after a many year hiatus. Thrilling stuff, I know.
For dinner I baked some gigantic baking potatoes and topped them with chili, cheese, sour cream and chopped red onion. It really is my favorite way to stretch out chili leftovers!
This weekend Matt wants to make clotted cream again and have sort of an early Passover type meal since I bought a roast at Aldi. It’s going to be a beef heavy few days but we did have chicken for many days after I did the shop so I think it evens out.
We were both fried so we finished the 2013 Great British Menu and I did a little weaving.
I think I’m going to hit Costco next week, our anniversary is next week, I’ve had my first shot and I need to drop off the Easter candy we picked up at my dad’s house. Hopefully they will have some fun seafood or steaks or something. Costco is not near us but it is near my dad so I try to combine it into one trip, especially now during the pandemic.
Actual outings today! I had to set up my dad with an online account to manage his vaccine appointment. We managed to do it via conference call but I ended up over there to pick up some mail he needed help with. He made oatmeal chocolate muffins and sent me home with some.
I really needed soda (I know!) and was going to do curbside at Target or delivery but thought it might be better to go in since I was in the suburbs anyway and it was early. I drove up and Michael’s was deserted so I dashed in there first and got some yarn and warp thread. It was weird being in an actual store and almost browsing! It was nice being able to see the colors in real life.
Then went to Target and got soda, Easter candy and odds and ends Aldi doesn’t sell.
I came home and Matt made sort of Cuban sandwiches with the leftover pork, pickles and onions with gruyere. And we ate the haggis chips we got back when we ordered Matt’s Scottish oatmeal. They were quite good!
We were stuffed after lunch so we had a bagged salad (a new one from Aldi with avocado) and poppy seed and pumpernickel bagels (half each) we froze and the last of lox. So good!! That Russ & Daughters order was great.
More French mysteries, according to Wikipedia we are watching them in some crazy order and I can’t find one of them on the list but it was good to see more about the actors and locations. Some looked really familiar.
Enjoying the Maintenance Phase podcast. The snake oil one has been best so far.
