Rain, rain, rain. …

Rain, rain, rain. That's what we have around here, and plenty of it. Luckily, I like rain. :-)

It's made for some good cooking; somehow this weather makes me want to cook. Lunch today was french onion soup with bay and thyme from the garden, delicate and lovely. Thursday night I made green curry (chicken, green beans, bamboo shoots, spiced with some hot chilies from the garden) and rice; tonight, a Mexican casserole, I think, roasted poblano, queso fresca, corn tortillas, etc. Or possibly fajitas, if it seems too warm for baking.

Taking it very easy still; I had a long and tiring day yesterday. Tonight is Nilofer's going-away party; until then, I'll just be puttering. Hope your weekend is similarly pleasant!

  1. It is interesting how weather can affect the desire to cook. This reminded me that whenever there is a big snowstorm, I have the very strong urge to broil a steak and cook lots of green vegetables to go with it.

  2. I am likewise having a wet weekend and the hurricane weather hasn’t even arrived in Michigan yet. I am between computer projects and working on the the timeline for a novel that has been bouncing around in my head for awhile so I haven’t wanted to go outside anyway.

    David’s note reminds me that we first baked bread during a 36 inch snow storm on Easter weekend while I was working for the University of Michigan. We discovered that kneading dough is a great way to dissipate aggressions. I am guessing but I think that was in 1974 and we’re still doing it.

    With all of live,
