WEEKEND UPDATE



Such a nice weekend.  Sunny, clear, cool, low humidity...just lovely.  Yesterday was so successful getting the garden cleaned up.  Post coming tomorrow morning with pics, the horrible before and the wonderful after.  It's such a weight lifted from my (gardening) shoulders.  

When I came home after being there all day, 2nd Man had this wonderful pasta dish prepared.  He knows I love pasta (I think I must have been Italian in a previous life, I could eat pasta every day).  This is pasta with a mushroom, pepper and pork cream sauce.  We also had some wonderful bread and a glass (or two) of wine.  It was a good day!  

Today I did stuff around here, to get the house closer to being ready to move when it sells.  Tomorrow we're having stew (cooking today) now that the cooler weather is, sort of, here.

It was very cool with very low humidity here today. Working in the yard would have been pleasant if I could do it! Working in the yard in high heat and humidity drains us all. That pasta dish looks delicious. I think I must be Italian, too. Only, my focus is more on tomato sauces. However, any pasta dish is not safe around me.

The weather makes SUCH a difference it what we can do outside, huh? Thanks for the compliment, I will let him know. I do love tomato sauces too, but the white ones are my weakness.

1st Man said...

Thanks, yep, the whites ones (cream/white cheese based) are my faves, but if it's pasta, I will eat it period! Will get a recipe for ya.
