|Potato Piroshki, Apricot-Filled Bars, and Champagne Grapes|
Compliments of Neighbor S
Neighbor S asked me if I'd like to have some potato piroshki and I said, "Yes, please". It is a type of bread roll filled with a savory filling - in this case, potato, but, I've had some filled with a ground meat mixture, too, and fried. She also gave me two pieces of apricot filled bars and some green champagne grapes, which are so sweet. The little container on the plate with the piroshki has a salt based seasoning mixture to have with them.
They were so good!
We had a day time high of 96F, today; apparently, it was a new record high for this date! I might have switched on the stand fan in the family room in the late afternoon! LOL!
I had a very relaxed day, today. I finished sewing the backing for the quilt and started sandwiching the layers together. Once upon a time, I would have spread the whole thing in the middle of the living room floor, got down on my hands and knees and basted it together. These days, I'm afraid my knees won't thank me if I were to do that and I am not sure if I'd be able to get up off the floor, either! So, I spread everything on the bed, which presented its own challenges and my spine is not happy with all the bending over! But, I have the top and the bottom pinned together and will continue with it, tomorrow.
Later, I browned the ground turkey I had thawing in the fridge. I was planning to make spaghetti sauce with it, in my meal plan, but, I made some unplanned changes to the meal plan, so, I might just freeze the cooked ground turkey, instead! I can use it later on.
I called and spoke with neighbor T, today; she said she is doing well, but, she expects to spend at least another month at the assisted living facility. She is happy with the level of care she is receiving, but, concerned about the costs. However, she is not well enough, yet, to be on her own at home.
Later, I chatted with friend R.
Breakfast had been the last of the three bananas I had bought on Friday. I'm glad I had bought only three bananas because I don't like them when they are ripe and this last one was getting almost riper than I like because the heat causes them to ripen really quickly.
Lunch was the last portion of the stir-fried ramen noodles I had made; I added a few roasted peanuts to it and some hot sauce and it was delicious!
Dinner was the piroshki neighbor S gave me and I had some salad with it.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Neighbor S treating me to a delicious meal
- Phone calls with neighbors and friends
- Video chats with daughter who is feeling OK after the migraine
- Emails from a cousin and from a friend
- The lovely warm day!
Today's joyful activity was assembling my quilt.
Plans for tomorrow include sewing a bit on the quilt, although, if it goes up to 98F as the forecast says, then, I might not want to be sitting with a lapful of quilt while I sew (I don't have a quilting frame).
How was your Sunday? What are your plans for Monday?
