I thought I wanted to do something wildly different for Thanksgiving but our little tradition won out. We don’t have any family to speak of really. My sister and her family are in Connecticut and although my brother lives locally he always goes to his buddy’s house for Thanksgiving. Over the years I’ve tried to […]
Crazy day cooking. First I made the rice, cheese, nut loaf in mini pans for Thanksgiving and put them in the freezer. Then I made meatballs to freeze or I’ll use tomorrow night for Sunday Supper. Then I made a fresh batch of coconut, pecan, maple granola. Yummy! Then I made some chocolate chip cookies […]
Well, I got up at 5am. Actually, I think it was 4:53 Emptied the dishwasher, clean the few stray dishes and had coffee. I went out to walk at 5:25 am. I came back, got the pizza dough going for Friday night pizza. Then from the comment yesterday, I got out the oxo and put […]
Today was my regular oncology appointment in Sacramento. I drove down in B’s Santa Fe since it was supposed to rain and I didn’t want to risk the ‘ole pink van’. But I think she would have made it just fine. But still, it’s nice to drive a newer car! All is good in Myelomaville. […]
It’s raining in Northern California and snowing over the summit in Tahoe. It’s a nice change. We certainly need it after the destructive fires in the Napa/Santa Rosa area.

An absolutely beautiful day here in Northern California.
We are having wonderful walks in the dark with the stars twinkling over head.
The leaves are turning golden yellow.
Tonight is Saturday Soup, our new name for the menu. Up tonight is a sp…
I’m off schedule this week and it drives me crazy. Yesterday, we went to Costco and Trader Joe’s because B was going to drive and help me. But it’s usually gym day. So that didn’t happen. Then our stove finally bit the dust this week as I was trying to make my sourdough boule and […]
I didn’t take any pictures but this is a recipe worth sharing. First, saute mushrooms in olive oil and a little butter. I was making this recipe as I had a whole container of mushrooms that needed to be used. So, saute till brown and I like to do them till they’re just a little […]
Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. Looking good for 67!!! I love you. I made an apple pie with apples from Machado’s orchard which is just down the road in Auburn. It came out good. I think I should peel the apples next time but it still tasted good. His request for dinner was Sub sandwiches […]
Well, it’s certainly feeling like fall here. It’s overcast and cool. A nice change from 105 heat. Right now I’m at Starbucks waiting to have a flat tire fixed next door at the tire place. Plus, have the tires rotated. This is on my 1999 Dodge van. I had the oil changed this week too. […]
