The plague has been going around my family. I’ve been really kinda sick for about 5 days now. And, it’s getting worse, what’s with that?? The problem is it just keeps changing – I think I have a cold, then it’s the flu then it’s who the hell knows what. It’s gone on long enough – my energy level is zippola.
This is what’s on my porch in the morning these days – kind of a shocker as it’s only October. We don’t usually get this till Thanksgiving; a good three weeks away.
This morning this is what my living room window looked like….a bit unusual, but I discovered my son found the storm window on the ground so he put it up where it belonged…frozen leaves and all. Helpful fellow, no? It looks like the leaves are on the inside. Hummmmmm.
I have gotten a bit of weaving in today – working on my girl tie scarf – this piece is 6" wide but the tie itself will be 3", just doubled over. I really liked the pattern until my husband said it would make a great guitar band then all these old late 60’s things came to mind….inkle bands, etc. darn.
The house smells really nice today. I was reading EATING WEll Magazine yesterday and it had a recipe for a Brisket. I don’t believe I’ve ever had one so it intrigued me.
It’s a three day process –
Day l: Marinate the meat in spices
Day 2 (which is today): Bake the meat, 40 minutes later add 4 onions chopped and a can or two of cranberry sauce, rewrap with tin foil bake 3 more hours. Chill overnight.
Day 3: Bake again for an hour. Serve
It really sounded good and the story around the reason for the brisket was charming. I’ll let you know how it works, maybe I’ll remember to take photos.
Right now the idea of food kinda puts me off. I think I’ll go downstairs and make a herbal tea brew and see if I can get my tummy to settle. This sucks.
