(This is the weekly post where you share your week of food. Did you have anything that really made your week, such as your favorite soup, a lunch out, or maybe you had something new? Find a new food product? A new appliance? Please do share!)
I have to say first, that I am so very, very fortunate and blessed to have gotten a new electric pan for an early Christmas gift, as I mentioned last week, and now that I've tried it, can say that it works very well!
I washed, seasoned, and cooked in it, as instructed. I am not used to doing anything different from my usual pan, but this one has a different coating altogether.
I've not got a lot to cook in it until next week, but I cooked a little meat in it, and some carrots, and it cooked like a dream!
By this time next week, I'd like to be making stew and Asian noodle dish starter for the freezer.
Losing my other pan at this time was a serious problem, but now I can cook again!
I have some applesauce that I'd like to make my corn muffins with. I meant to use it in it this morning, but it was early, and I made the corn cake by rote, not remembering the applesauce.
Ds was supposed to be here fairly early, and they would caulk the screws in the siding. With a couple of issues at home, he arrived much later than planned.
As it turned out, the caulking didn't look good. The painter said not to worry about it, that he thought that his layers of paint and such would make it not look bad. I don't know, but it probably couldn't look worse than with the caulking.
We need caulking for around the windows and doors anyway, but not all that we have, which is a case.
I wonder if the paint store with take the unused ones back?
Anyway, because of getting here late, we skipped the hotdog lunch. We still have everything, and will have it another day I suppose.
Instead, they are working on the 'fire hydrant.' It's not like a city hydrant, but a pipe, essentially, with special metal fittings, etc.
The fire depts. have a standard that you have to make it to, which is pricey, but we got it originally. The reason is, if you have water, and this specially fitted pipe, fire trucks will come in an emergency to get water from you, and you also have a better chance of them defending your place.
It had to be placed in a certain area, and we have to get a blue reflector to put at the bottom of the driveway, so that they know that we have it.
We'll have to keep our water tanks topped off in the fire season, which we try to do anyway.
The thing is, that leftover pieces of our siding were used to hold it up temporarily. It rained. Not a lot, but it rained. The siding essentially poofs up and collapses, which would somehow ruin the hydrant...not sure how. Maybe the hill will come down on it?
So, we took out 3 bags of cement, and the guys are making and pouring it around it/up the hill from it. That should do it, I'm told.
Well, that's it from here! How was your food week?
