Last Wednesday night it began to rain and we’ve been sitting in a cloud bank watching it rain or snow since Wednesday. And it’s been cold and breezy. The forecast tells us we are going to be sitting in this cloud bank until maybe Thursday–not nice!
We’ve been hanging out in the house/garage puttering, reading, cooking and enjoying some down time. Friday I had a massage in town and then joined friends Jill and Jeane for lunch–it was good to see them! Saturday the Cowboy had a lunch date in town with a bunch of his high school friends.
Sunday morning after I made breakfast (pancakes and bacon) we took a walk up into the hayfields where eagle eye Cowboy spotted this bald eagle watching over the neighbor’s horses–
After our walk the eagle was still in tree so I jumped on the ATV and drove down the driveway to see if I could get a touch closer–he allowed me the one photo above before soaring away.
For lunch today I was preparing this recipe our friend Pam had shared on Facebook–Gluten Free Baked Feta Pasta. Following the recipe to some extent the first time, I used the oven and what a mess–the olive oil splatters everywhere. Pam had used her grill so today I placed my Pyrex casserole dish on the grill–something I’ve done many, many times before as I use our gas grill for way more than grilling. Years ago I took a gas grill cooking class and learned to even bake using the grill.
I also didn’t use gluten free pasta but stuck with the rest of the recipe. Everything was cooking, I had added the shrimp and set the timer. I went outside to check and noticed a tremendous amount of smoke coming from the grill–opened the lid and said a few choice words!! My Pyrex dish had literally exploded–that was the end of that lunch! What a mess to clean up!
As I’m finishing this blog the sun is shining!!–for the first time in days!!
