This week, the weather has been so nice that Monday and Tuesday, I walked....today, I rode my bike, to the grocery store and home, to Shopper's and home, to a friend's house and home....it felt so good to ride my bike....even tho I wore winter coat, hat and gloves....I was exhilarated....have been waiting for such a long time....surprise....I didn't have to put air in my tires....they were ok!!
Today, I made raisin bread....for my sweet friend, Rose, who is recovering from flu....I phoned her yesterday, asked her if she would like a loaf and she said she would love some as she has been just having Ensure to keep her strength up.....so the bread was delivered by bicycle this afternoon.
I made a different potato recipe today.....slice potatoes and stand them in a pan-grease the pan with 1 tblsp. olive oil....in between the slices add some chopped green onions....brush the tops of the potatoes with another tblsp. olive oil....sprinkle with a little salt and pepper....bake for about 45 mins. in 350 deg. Fahr. oven....turn oven down to 300 deg. Fahr....sprinkle potatoes with dried or fresh thyme...bake another 20-30 mins. till crispy....they were deliciouis with ground chicken patties and cooked carrots.
I also had a chance to do a little cleanup in my greenhouse today....I think I have a vining beetle eating a couple of my plants....saw some chomps out of the leaves...will have to go out with my flashlight tonight and look for them......they come out at night and bury themselves in the soil or under the pots in the daytime....boo on those buggies...
Moved all my African violets into the greenhouse....will see how they do out there...they all need repotting.
March is marching on... and not so depressing....this weekend the time changes and we will have a longer day.
Tomorrow, we will tackle our greenhouse shade...replacing the fabric after nearly 30 years of wear....
