A little bit of everything…

November 22, 2009

Another wonderful weekend, good weather, nothing on the calendar for the whole weekend…ahhhh…

Yesterday, hus took me to his favorite local wings, etc. bar, Chicken Bone Saloon, for lunch…had one of the best cosmos I’ve had in ages!  Then we went grocery shopping, both for this weekend and for Thanksgiving.  Got a beautiful boneless turkey breast, a couple of bags of local cranberries with which to experiment, cherry pie makings, haricot verts, delicata squash…combine all that with the last of our homegrown potatoes and it will be fun cooking Thursday.

Last night, we had steamed mussels (with white wine, lemon juice, garlic, diced tomatoes, basil and parsley), amazing brussels sprouts (olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, sauteed, then baked in 300 degree oven for a while, then drizzled with maple syrup as it cooled off) and roast beef with horseradish…can we get a HUGE YUM!!!!!?

Football Sunday…Pats don’t play until 4pm…time to get a few chores done beforehand and eat leftover medium rare roast beef and make up a cheese plate and cook little weinies and cook up some spicy tempura-d haricot verts…and the sun is shining outside…and we’re nearing the end of November?????

Son‘s latest is that he has joined his sis, BIL and BFF in running for fun…something about running and fun don’t go together to me, but I admire them in getting exercise while working many jobs simultaneously.  His BFF got new glasses this week and I can’t wait to see them on her…hint?  Love his photos…

Daughter and her DDH ate and blogged vegan this week and it has been really interesting to see how many young (under 30) women in particular participated with them.  Not something I would choose, as I love lots of different foods, but have been reintroduced to butternut squash and reminded how much of what I eat contains animal or bee or other surprising non-vegan elements.  I want to give a shout-out to all the moms of these under thirties…a very impressive generation of women.  Hats off to you all!
