Roasted cauliflower soup sounds interesting, C! The pour art looks interesting also! We love cheddar/cauliflower soup but a change might be interesting. The man who told me 10 years ago he did not mind eating the same thing every day, does! Today's BF was left over porridge mixed with two eggs and fried in minimal olive oil. Having found I love sweet potato FFries, I have compromised by cutting it one thin and frying it, also in minimal olive oil. Very yummy, we think.

And now! I just put an apricot cake in the oven. First cake effort in years. R bought me a jar of additive free apricots from Greece. He has nudged me to do something. I dearly hope this effort is far superior to the two dif batches of muffins - one batch = hockey pucks, the second have no flavour in spite of wonderful blueberries. This time, I used unbleached flour instead of WhWh. It has been in the freezer...

I brought in a good bit of wood yesterday - maybe 1/8 and a few armloads late this aft. My back said it needed a rest. Changed the bed, load of laundry. Keeping the fire going as the furnace has decided to take a break. There is heat in the cellar, a heating pad on the bed and a small electric heater in the TV room. The den is fine! The distiller has been running and that generates heat. I am not sure about the oven; this peculiar stove has ...peculiarities! I could look it up on line! There might even be a way to get it to speak English!!

And THIS has reminded me there is another heating pad that I could put at the foot of the bed. It was cool this am.
