I've been out a few times already: I've taken Gabe out on the leash three times, fed the calves and cats, and gone to the shop to retrieve a pie I made for Thanksgiving. It was sort of an experiment, a lemon-cream cheese pie made from a recipe I had seen someone share on Facebook. I decided it wasn't good enough to put out with all the really good desserts we had for the big day, although I can't put my finger on anything that was wrong with it. I think perhaps I'm so used to my sister's lemon pie, made with real lemons (and no cream cheese) that it wasn't as good in comparison. Cliff and I both had a taste of it awhile ago, one bite dipped in Cool Whip, and decided maybe it wasn't so bad after all; we'll be having a piece for dessert. Dinner will be some leftover split pea soup I made the day before Thanksgiving.
Cliff complained that he hardly had any turkey on Thanksgiving day, so I bought a turkey breast to make him feel better. We'll be having that soon, and I'd like to make a turkey pot pie with some of that turkey, too.
Here are some pictures I took on my walkabout this morning:
|Yeah, I know I should have cut down the poor dried-up plants of summer. I don't do a lot of things I should.|
Have a great day.
