I’ve been in a soupy mood. It’s been chilly (now COLD) and with my current fibro flare, cooking is down at the bottom of my priority list. Late last week I threw together a “Thanksgiving Use Up the Leftovers” soup in my slow cooker, with lentils, turkey, and sweet potatoes and served it over leftover stuffing. Winner!
Hubby made me his delicious potato soup on Sunday.
Today was lentils and ham (leftover ham).
I could grow to like this. To be fair, when I feel like this, the options are pretty much anything I can toss in the slow cooker, or one of the frozen pizzas I now keep on hand for just such a circumstance. Or take out, which I’m pretty much burned out on.
I’ve taken up crochet again and made myself some spiffy fingerless gloves in a couple of colors, as well as another beret and a scarf. Keeping warm, for me, even though yes I live here in Florida, is a priority. I can easily get cold in air conditioning in the summer and my fingers and toes turn into blocks of ice, so cold weather like we’re having now (we had frost last night) is a killer for me.
So I’m sitting here with a full tummy, just finished off the last of the pumpkin pie, watching “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” and watching hubby starting to put lights on our Christmas tree.
I’m just hoping our Christmas tree decorating goes a little more smoothly than the Griswolds’.
