Cookin'

Monday was Bill's birthday, so I made him sauerbraten, German potato salad, and sweet & sour cabbage for his dinner, and crumb-topped apple pie for dessert. Everything came out delicious, except maybe the gingersnap gravy- I don't think I added enough gingersnaps, so it tasted a bit too much like the vinegary marinade, and not quite sweet and spicy enough. Nor did it come out a proper gravy consistency, more like a sauce. I was in a bit of a hurry to get dinner on the table because it was a work night and I still had to get ready, so I didn't do the obvious fix and crush up more gingersnaps. Bill liked it anyway.

It is almost chick season here in Pahrump. I think I will get myself a couple of little Rhode Island Red chicks, so that I will have eggs next winter. This winter, I had a long stretch of about one egg a day (all green, weird), and then a few weeks of no eggs at all. Now that the days are somewhat longer (and the weather is extra-mild) my brown egg layers have started up again, and I've collected at least one egg every day, and four on a couple of days. Now I have to get back in the habit of using eggs in my cooking.

Let's see... what else is going on? Bill and I spent a portion of today fixing cracks in the concrete pad for the garage. We mixed up some concrete patch stuff and poured in into the cracks, and leveled it of with putty knives. I like doing things like that.
