I’m drinking a beer, reading an article about pine beetle outbreaks in BC, and making a real roast dinner with salad, mashed potatoes, a red wine marinade that will become sauce, and popovers-which are apparently different from yorkshire puddings.

We don’t deserve dogs. My brother arrived with the dogs. My mom was crying and Lexa picked up her favorite toy and gave it to her.

Ooh, a stir fry sounds good! I know you said not just a salad but I make a harvest salad that’s greens, butternut squash roasted with chili powder and maple syrup, diced Granny Smith apples, cheese of your preference (I like a sharp white), and TJ’s sweet and spicy pecans.
