Middle of January
Today I am going to make some jewelry and sew a little and cook a little. It is time for another cheese day, so I have to grate up all the parmesan (doesn't it just annoy you the way all those TV cooks just HAVE to say Parmesano-Reggiano, like they are SO in the know) and store it in the freezer. Yesterday I made a batch of chowder base, which is the broth and vegetables and seasonings, which you then freeze. When it is time for chowder, you just heat it up and add the seafood and cream.
We are trying to get the stuff together to send another package to each of the girls. We seem to spend a lot of time down at the Fedex, and I do a lot of fedexing at work, so I feel friendly toward them. Imagine them being cheaper that the post office and quicker too. He has signed up for his own fedex number, so it is even more convenient.
Holy cow, it is later than I though. Time to get ready for church.
