Welcome to the week between, Christmas and New Year’s of course. Given the weather forecast for Atlanta it appears that my week will start out in WLF making hay while the sun shines, or may shine in this case. I have to do some cleanup and preparing for next year’s growing, and will be harvesting some vegetables for meals at home.
I hope that you had a merry Christmas weekend. Christmas Day saw me hanging out with hashers in the afternoon sitting outdoors at Red’s Beer Garden before returning home for dinner. Bonnie and I dined together at the ITP Estate. I prepared a vegetarian meatloaf, which was good but could have been better, and Bonnie brought over Brussels sprouts which we roasted and potatoes which we nuked. The potatoes were a revelation for me because I didn’t realize that I could cook new potatoes in that way. Next year I want to try to plant Brussels sprouts at the proper time in hopes of eating homegrown ones next Christmas.
Yesterday’s Boxing Day plans were shot to hell thanks to COVID. In the end I wound up going with Bonnie to our friend Wendy’s house where we drank beer and snacked all afternoon. I was home before 8pm and after eating a bite for dinner passed out for the evening on my futon.
This morning I have already baked a breakfast casserole that will provide my breakfasts all week.
Even though the Monday night hash sounds enticing I will probably skip tonight. I should be spending less money (given Iâ€™ve had no real income since August), don’t need to eat out (I have plenty of food at home which I can prepare), and could do with a night home for choring.
Pssst, if you read “choring” and think “Letterkenny” then the good news is that Season 10 was released on Hulu yesterday. Woot!
Be happy, stay well.
