Gardener friend M specializes in growing pumpkins and other winter squash! He brought me one of his blue pumpkins, the other day. I have it up on the living room mantelpiece for now, as a decoration, but, it is supposed to be edible and I might try cooking it, one day, soon.
Today has been mostly cloudy with some sunshine in the afternoon. I finished redoing my Halloween wreath, adding a few new items to it:
Later, I vacuumed the rest of the house and did a couple of loads of laundry.
I made-over some leftovers for lunch:
Cooked spaghetti noodles, leftover baked chicken cut into small pieces, a handful of coleslaw mix, a piece or two of bell peppers, cut into small strips, all sauteed in a bit of bacon fat, with a little soy sauce and dried chili flakes stirred in at the end with a handful of peanuts and a little chili sauce after serving to a plate.
Later in the afternoon, my daughter prepared two Korean dishes:
A type of stew made with tofu and vegetables (zucchini, mushrooms, potatoes, onion); to be served over rice. She took some over to N (neighbor S's daughter) afterwards.
She likes to do meal prep on the weekends and cook for the week. I seem unable to meal prep for more than a couple of days, although, there was a time when I used to cook for the week!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Wool sweaters
- Working appliances
- Daughter cooking some of this week's meals
- Being able to make-over leftovers
- Getting some crafting done
Today's joyful activities included redoing the Halloween wreath and making a seedpod garland.
Plans for tomorrow include putting gas to the car. I have half a tank of gas and I usually fill up the tank when it gets to half. Especially since I have to go to downtown on Monday for my eye appointment. A half a tank of gas will get me there and back without a problem, but, I don't like to let the tank get to quarter before I fill it.
How was your Saturday? What are your plans for Sunday?
