The farmer’s market was quite subdued this week, compared to last. We got much of our usual, so I didn’t feel like taking a picture, although we did pick up a delicious sticky bun from Our Daily Bread.
I’m sick of turkey already. Ha! How am I going to make it through the week?
We picked up some stew beef (which is serious as tender as kebobs) to make beef curry this week to break up the turkey. And some more cream to make some cream of leek soup, since we have some left over from making the winter squash chowder for Thanksgiving.
But today’s excitement (besides the Jets winning a game for once) was going to chop down a Christmas tree! Last year, we tried to support our local fire district, which sells already cut trees each year – and the $$ goes to support them – a great cause. But the tree was just awful, dried out, and it barely lasted until Christmas. K and I swore we wouldn’t do it again, even for a good cause.
So this year, we found a local tree farm. It was so much fun, but as I still have loads to clean up for tonight, it will have to wait till tomorrow. Suffice it to say, our living room now smells of fir and the kitties are having a blast hiding under its boughs. 🙂
