Blogger is FINALLY fixed, and I have ornament number 278,
A REAL crafting vacation in two weeks!
As you know, my planned "crafting vacation" at the start of October was waylaid by the garden, but THIS time I'll be ready. Andy has a business trip, and while he wouldn't care if I were taking a vacation or not, I find it easier to do while he's gone. If he's here, I feel like I should still make a real lunch and still do "my fair share," especially after all the extra he's had to do during the Back Saga. On my own, I can eat toast over the sink three times a day and not feel at all guilty. This time I'm guessing on a big pot of some tomato-based soup as
or we're going to pretend for my sanity's sake, at any rate. The sweet red peppers are all used up now, and most of the sweet green ones. I shudder to think how many poblano peppers I still have, but I roasted, peeled, and froze about 3 dozen of the silly things AND used them in several batches of salsa and they are STILL in two big bags in the refrigerator. I'm thinking eight poblano pepper plants was perhaps a bit over-zealous. I think by November my friends would like to come over for something besides Mexican food.......Though maybe there's a traditional Thanksgiving Chile Relleno recipe somewhere........
