Princess, glad to hear from you. You must have agreed with recommendation from consultation your husband had re his hand. Sorry he has to go through the operation, but will keep him in my thoughts and prayers for resulting complete use of his hand again. Good to hear also, that your health is maintaining a steady pace.
So glad I did errands yesterday, particularly at Costco, got up to a damp, dank, Thursday morning. Definitely a baking day.
Kargiver anxious for you to taste the batch of pickles and see just how hot and spicy they turn out. I don't remember any batch of my aunt's coming out just exactly as the one before, there was always a little different taste to them. That's what made them interesting. Writing about them, my mouth is salivating - I can see and taste them. How we treasured that jar she always gave us when we came back from a week's vacation there.
Was going to do some poking - for nothing in particular - today, but unless it warms up a bit, I'll scratch that idea. As always, plenty of washes to do, I'm either awfully clean or awfully dirty, by the looks of the how fast that wash piles up!
No Harry again this morning, but checked with his "other mom" and both cats were there last night eating, so know he's OK.
Have to think of something good for breakfast - only have 2 eggs left and I'll use them in baking today. Did make a bowl of custard yesterday afternoon, and sampled it last night. Love that, just plain, no pie crust around it, custard baked with a little sprinkle of nutmeg on top.
I'll check in later.
