April 29, 2013


Spring is a real bitch this  year.  She tempts us with a glorious sunny day then returns to weather – cold, damp and perhaps in the 50s. I fear that after a bit more, she will bail out and turn the weather over to the  gods of Air Conditioning leaving us with very little time to luxuriate in a great Springtime....

Taking advantage of a day that was too chilly to work outside we bit the bullet and defrosted both freezers.  We have come to the conclusion that we have too much food in there and will be trying to pull stuff out more than once a week.  Eating leftover here is not a chore…Last night’s Pot Roast (perfect for the weather) and this  afternoon’s Gumbo as examples.
