“What’s for Supper?”

November 5, 2010

I really didn’t want to hear those words.  Was it that late?  “I don’t know.  I’m busy.”  When I’m working on something, I hate to stop in the middle.  It has never occurred to him that I might want to finish what I’m doing before doing what he wants.  So I ignore him and keep working.  I was almost finished anyway.  What’s an extra 15 or 20 minutes?  What was I doing?  I was making my tunic pattern in another size.  I was hoping to use the same facings, but they just refused to fit.  I managed to cut new ones out of some scraps.  I headed to the kitchen and started digging around.  I found some small red potatoes that I had bought at a vegetable stand that had closed about a month so I figured it was time to eat them.  I washed and scraped them and put them in the microwave.  I found some frozen scallops which I thawed in the sink.  What about veggies?  Well, there’s leftovers and corn(Doug’s favorite).  I sautéed the scallops with a little butter, parsley, dill, onion, garlic and bacon.  They were good.  Doug dumped salsa on his.  He dumps salsa on just about everything.  Sometimes I wonder.

I Am SO Full!

I went to the dentist this morning to get some work done on my lower plate.  They took out the liner and put in a new one.  Then, I went to the mall and got a haircut.  The last haircut I had was awful.  I went to a new place in town and I will never go back.  I hate to have to drive 20 miles just to get a haircut, but what do you do?  My hair looks good, but I still have a few inches of color in it.  It’s not very gray and the color I used wasn’t dark so it really doesn’t look bad at all.  It was about 1PM by then and I was really hungry.  I got an orange smoothie and headed home.  Along the way, I stopped at a roadside stand and bought blueberries, Lima beans and corn. 

Doug wanted hamburgers with mushrooms and onions in gravy, mashed potatoes and corn.  I could never make this again and be perfectly happy, but he loves it so I make it occasionally.  And I did have some nice ground sirloin.  He ate three ears of corn and I had one.  How does he do it?  He just had a physical and blood work and all is well.  I can’t eat like that.  It’s disgusting!

Here, I am just about to start on the middle finger of my gloves.  I made the thumb shorter than it was supposed to be.  It was too long.  I worked on the finger at the dentist.  It is the the same width as the first finger.  It was easier to figure out this time.
