This morning I woke early and with an appetite, which is a very, very good sign. As I type, nitrate-free bacon is resting to come to room temperature (as it bakes the best at room temp), Tim's lunch is started and soon, a nice pot of decaf.
Once I feed and shove Frankenberry out the door, it's onto cleaning the bedding and making a big pot of mushroom and potato soup. If all goes well, I'll be finished by noon and working on a new quilt.
In other news, yesterday I took another dairy test. Slight belly swell and headache but NOOOOO face, neck or lip rash. Zero gummy throat and nose, as well. Which is also a very, very good sign.
That's about all from me, it's going on 6AM and I'm fixin' to close this day out by noon. Wishing you all the best and boogie boogie.
Dang you sure are an early riser! Great news on your dairy test. The mushroom and potato soup sounds yummy!ReplyDelete
I much prefer early roll call to a later one. What time do you like to get going?Delete
Good stuff, Wonder Woman! So happy for you. Have a great day ahead. I'm out and about this morning. Yesterday I spent the day spring cleaning. Got a lot to do in the next few weeks. And now that my shoulder is soooo much better, I can get my stuff done.ReplyDelete
Super duper glad to hear that your shoulder is better. Woohoo!Delete
I hear ya on the Spring cleaning. Just as soon as there's zero chance of snow, I'm tossing many of our ratty winter stuff.
Out, out, out.
Good news all around! That soup has two of my favorite ingredients. Now I'll be thinking about it all day. mmmmm. Enjoy it for me too! :)ReplyDelete
Me too on the favorites. Mushrooms were on sale last night. Though I didn't get to make the soup, I baked a cake and did chicken tenders instead.Delete
How goes you?
Glad to hear things are going so well!ReplyDelete
Another step forward.Delete
Hope you are quilting by noon as planned!ReplyDelete
Not even close but I tried.Delete
Do nitrates add to the flavor? I never looked that one up.ReplyDelete
I believe it's a preservative, but I'm not ceratin. I get the non-nitrate because around here, it has less salt and a cleaner bacon taste.Delete
Where the nitrate full one, tends to be WAY too salty for me and kind of dirty tasting.
Lovely to hear that things are improving for you.ReplyDelete
Have a nice day! It's cold and windy here, no sun.ReplyDelete
Did you have the heat on today?Delete
Getting ready to make a fruit smoothie myself and then sit in the warm house and catch up on blogging.ReplyDelete
If it's dairy-free, than YUM!Delete
Did you enjoy your blog catch up time?
Oh Frankenberry is not your husband? It explains a lot of thing...ReplyDelete
Frankenberry is Tim, yeppers. I also call him Poopyhead and sometimes Frankenberry Bumble. Oh yeah, and sometimes Smoochie Face.Delete
mmmmmmmmmnow I am think I should make some mushroom soup for dinner. It is rather cool here today only a high of 84 WoooHooooReplyDelete
I am also careful on the nitrates. And for many years never ate anything cured like ham and certain aged cheeses.
It's too darn salty for me and then I'll get headaches so I try to get nitrate-free.Delete
Only 84, you're killing me.
What will you have with your soup? I ended up baking a cake instead of making soup.
Sounds like you are having an excellent day.ReplyDelete
Enjoy to the max.
Thinking of you.
Thanks Sandra :-)Delete
Hope you're back to 100% ASAP!ReplyDelete
Me too but that's not likely. At least for today, in the right direction. How goes you?Delete
Nitrite free bacon??? What the hell is that???ReplyDelete
I'm not all that sure a preservative I believe. I get the non-nitrate because around here, it has less salt and a cleaner bacon taste.Delete
Hope all goes to plan and you stay well. Never thought of pairing mushrooms and potatoes for soup.ReplyDelete
How about mushroom gravy over potato mash?Delete
Well as I actually rarely eat mashed potatoes, or potatoes of any kind really, I didn't think of it, but yes, you are right. I like potato puree made with goat cheese a la Bobby Flay.Delete
I wasn't sure if you liked mushrooms or potatoes. Frankenberry is not a fan of the shrooms but I could eat a bowl of them a day.Delete
Thanks for stopping by and boogie boogie.
I have never even heard of nitrite free bacon. Where do you get it?ReplyDelete
In our area Wegmans, Aldi, Tops and Big Bird all carry uncured bacon. I like it because it's less salty tasting.Delete
And there you go, I didn't know you made quilts. Are you going to show any of your quilting work on this blog?
I think I have in the past but I'm not sure. I love working with fabric or yarn. Do you quilt sew or play with yarn?Delete
I much prefer painting but belong to a number of textile groups and am "encouraged" to make something for their exhibitions.ReplyDelete
Today I'm resting and I have a box of fabric in front of me. Not sure what I'm going to make yet. Another dog rug or a quilt for the bed.Delete
Painting sounds fun. I've not tried it but once a long time ago.
What kind of exhibit is it? Is it like a show and everyone goes and looks at all the other stuff and drinks tea and eats yummy food?
Mmmmm....mushroom potato soup sounds great.ReplyDelete
