|Breakfast: Waffles with Peach Topping|
My daughter and I ran a couple of errands in the afternoon and I treated her to her favorite iced coffee drink. After we came home, I did two loads of laundry and she packed her suitcase, leaving some room for the food I will be sending home with her. Then, we ordered some baby gifts my cousin's daughter had requested for her baby shower, which will be sent directly to her. Even though I am crocheting her a baby blanket, with our new Covid case numbers going over 6,000 yesterday (weekend numbers aren't posted until Monday), hospitalizations going up, and the test positivity rate being 9.8% (7-day average), I am not sure if I will feel comfortable attending the actual shower, so, wanted to send her a gift just in case I decide not to go to the baby shower in person.
|Leftovers/Fried Rice for Lunch|
I made fried rice for lunch, using a bunch of leftovers! Leftover rice, leftover cooked sausage, leftover broccoli, leftover broccoli leaf mallung (which colored the rice yellow because it had turmeric in it), and the last bit of roasted peanuts that were leftover in the jar! In fact, I think it would be a good candidate for the SPSH No. 14 - Left Overs! I did add an egg which wasn't a leftover. There is a little of the fried rice leftover for my lunch, tomorrow!
Neighbor S called in the early evening. She, her mother, and her aunt made gata (Armenian cookies) and her daughter N made rhubarb-strawberry jam; would we like to have some? Yes, please! My daughter loves their homemade gata and who wouldn't like some homemade rhubarb-strawberry jam? The gata were still warm from the oven when N brought them over! We were told they should be allowed to get cold before eating, but, well...I can assure you that they taste just as lovely when still warm from the oven! LOL.
|Gata and Homemade Rhubarb-Strawberry Jam|
N mentioned that the rhubarb-strawberry jam would be good in lemonade! That sounded delicious! My daughter quickly picked some lemons, I juiced them, and she made us two glasses of rhubarb-strawberry lemonade and it was lovely! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture! But, it was a very pretty pink color and tasted great!
