I got to get out to the garden today. It’s gone feral. Even my faithful little lamb’s ears have jumped their border. I pulled out two dead tomato plants and a lot of weeds, but you can hardly tell. It’s going to be a long slog this winter to get it back into shape after an entire summer of neglect.
My foot’s better. The broken bone is all healed, so now I’m doing exercises trying to get the ankle back into shape.
I haven’t made a lasagne since I broke my foot in June. I had hoped to make one today, but it was my turn to take snacks for church so I made 54 cupcakes instead. It was the right number. Many went right away and then demand trickled off, and the last lonely cupcake sat for several minutes before someone nabbed it. I used the Texas sheet cake recipe (reduce baking time to 12 minutes) for the cupcakes and frosting. I wish I knew where that recipe came from, I’ve had it since I was a kid.
I think it’s going to be a one-pie Thanksgiving next week. I may put ( fighter-chick’s cherry pie )into a sweet crust and spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and cloves again like I did last thanksgiving.
I went to a dinner party athyster1a's and ate eggs poached in tomato sauce. It sounds weird, but it was really good. Here's a spicy version, and a plain one.
