Happy New Year-明けましておめでとうございます
This has been a very happy but busy time. My hands have been busy knitting projects for Christmas & birthdays. For that reason I haven't spent much time on the computer. Just basic checking mail and looking at the postings of family and friends on Facebook. I'm especially happy with how Ernie's vest turned out and I see that he is wearing it quite a bit. I made two mini-vests and a ribbon scarf. With these projects completed, I can begin another project for my self without feeling guility.
Tomorrow a new box of fruits & veggies arrive from Farm Fresh Farms, so I'll have a new round of cooking to share. Since we went to our daughter's for Christmas, we didn't have leftovers after Christmas and I missed that. To make up for that, we bought a nine pound turkey breast and roasted it. So that filled the turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy craving - today I'm going to fix a lentil stew with jalapeno sauce and cutup turkey in it and turn it into tortillas filled with the mixture. Avocados are fairly inexpensive now and I'll add that to the tortillas. By the way I froze turkey slices from over half of the turkey. It sure beats lunchmeat.
Speaking of avocados, I've been mashing a quarter of an avocado on my toast instead of butter or peanut butter. Then I add a thin slice of provolone on top. Makes a perfect breakfast.
Anyone out there have interesting and different ideas for breakfast?
