I finished painting the wonky trees. I liked this color…a little Blue Spruce looking color.
I also finished the Santa woodcarvings.
Wednesday was soup day…five hours later there was soup for many days cooling to go into the freezer. I didn’t get much else done. I made my usual old standby soup; beef with carrots, cabbage, rutabaga and potatoes. I do run some tomatoes through a strainer…I DO NOT like chunks of tomatoes or seeds in my soup. I made two huge Dutch ovens full. I love making soup in my Cast Iron Dutch Oven.
Far Guy cooked up his own soup…he makes a Chicken Tortilla Soup that he likes. I don’t much care for it. Chicken, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, black beans, corn, green chilies, diced tomatoes and some taco seasoning.
Supper was easy and just needed some warming up. The day was dark and dreary but the house was cozy warm and smelled awesome…I had a wonderful nap until suppertime.
Perfect dreary day activities.
