We ate a lot this weekend. Saturday I made orange-poppy seed pancakes for breakfast. We had them with butter, home-made strawberry jelly, and lots of coffee. Having a space set apart for the kitchen is wonderful. I feel I can throw myself into cooking again. We have an over-abundance of eggs this weekend; on Sunday I used up some in a quiche and in cookies, my husband made us an omelet with four, but we’re still overflowing. He brought six in for a co-worker today, and I’m left with an even dozen, not to mention what’s out in the coop. I think I’ll make cupcakes today.
The nights are getting colder, we had a frost advisory last night, but fortunately we didn’t get the frost, I haven’t brought in my basil yet, and I don’t want to loose it. I’m excited about our winterizing projects this fall, a real floor in the yurt, pretty wool on the walls, and closing in the area beneath the yurt - they’re all so attractive. And I like the idea of being even more cozy this winter!
