For lunch I made orzo with spaghetti squash, olives, halloumi and a bunch of other tasty bits. Then for dinner Matt had some shrimp with rice and mushrooms and I had some shrimp with cocktail sauce and some leftover egg rolls.
We watched All Creatures Great and Small. It’s not relaxing if they have to euthanize a horse! Watched a little more of the glass blowing.
I finished up a weaving and my yarn order finally arrived. It was missing some yarn. Not ordering from there again.
For lunch I had the leftover mashed turnip/potatoes from over the weekend and few bites of leftover pork and red beans and rice. Matt had the rest of the pork and read beans and rice.
For dinner we had bread/cheese/mushroom pate and the rest of the frozen spinach apps we had. And what is supposed to be a sunburst tangerine from the tangerine crate I ordered but I think is a honeybell tangelo.
We watched The Bay on Britbox. I doubled back and started the Tanya Harding episodes of You’re Wrong About.
We split the serving of lasagna from yesterday’s weird pick up dinner for lunch. Matt added a little extra noodles to the sauce. I had the leftover stuffing as a snack.
For dinner Matt made buttermilk biscuits and we had the leftover barley soup.
I made a Whole Foods order, I broke a kitchen tool they sell so I ordered that and some produce (potatoes!) and fancy English muffins for breakfast over the weekend.
More weaving! You can tell I have liked the same colors for a long time because my old yarn odds and ends (some have to be 15 years old!) and some new yarn/fiber I ordered are all very similar and easy to coordinate.
This is yarn all bought at random at at least four separate locations!
I listened to Death in Ice Valley today. We watched some of the Pottery Throwdown. I’m reading the book The Flight Attendant was based on. The author seems like he really writes a lot very unrelated books. So far it’s pretty close to the show except some superficial details.
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.!
For lunch we had hot dogs (they expire over the weekend) and for dinner Matt made pizza. I had splurged for the fancy pizza flour (King Arthur) on a trip to Weis a while back and it worked really well! The dough was pleasantly chewy.
Matt worked most of the day so we didn’t do anything too special. We did open our stockings for each other and watch French tv.
