Hot Dog - Today I Woke Hungry

This morning I woke early and with an appetite, which is a very, very good sign. As I type, nitrate-free bacon is resting to come to room temperature (as it bakes the best at room temp), Tim's lunch is started and soon, a nice pot of decaf.

Once I feed and shove Frankenberry out the door, it's onto cleaning the bedding and making a big pot of mushroom and potato soup. If all goes well, I'll be finished by noon and working on a new quilt.

Fingers crossed.

In other news, yesterday I took another dairy test. Slight belly swell and headache but NOOOOO face, neck or lip rash. Zero gummy throat and nose, as well. Which is also a very, very good sign.

That's about all from me, it's going on 6AM and I'm fixin' to close this day out by noon. Wishing you all the best and boogie boogie.

  2. Good stuff, Wonder Woman! So happy for you. Have a great day ahead. I'm out and about this morning. Yesterday I spent the day spring cleaning. Got a lot to do in the next few weeks. And now that my shoulder is soooo much better, I can get my stuff done.

    1. Super duper glad to hear that your shoulder is better. Woohoo!

      I hear ya on the Spring cleaning. Just as soon as there's zero chance of snow, I'm tossing many of our ratty winter stuff.

      Out, out, out.

    1. Me too on the favorites. Mushrooms were on sale last night. Though I didn't get to make the soup, I baked a cake and did chicken tenders instead.

      How goes you?

  6. Do nitrates add to the flavor? I never looked that one up.

    1. I believe it's a preservative, but I'm not ceratin. I get the non-nitrate because around here, it has less salt and a cleaner bacon taste.

      Where the nitrate full one, tends to be WAY too salty for me and kind of dirty tasting.

  11. mmmmmmmmmnow I am think I should make some mushroom soup for dinner. It is rather cool here today only a high of 84 WoooHoooo
    I am also careful on the nitrates. And for many years never ate anything cured like ham and certain aged cheeses.

    1. It's too darn salty for me and then I'll get headaches so I try to get nitrate-free.

      Only 84, you're killing me.

      What will you have with your soup? I ended up baking a cake instead of making soup.

    1. I'm not all that sure a preservative I believe. I get the non-nitrate because around here, it has less salt and a cleaner bacon taste.

  15. Hope all goes to plan and you stay well. Never thought of pairing mushrooms and potatoes for soup.

    1. How about mushroom gravy over potato mash?

      Delete
    2. Well as I actually rarely eat mashed potatoes, or potatoes of any kind really, I didn't think of it, but yes, you are right. I like potato puree made with goat cheese a la Bobby Flay.

    3. I wasn't sure if you liked mushrooms or potatoes. Frankenberry is not a fan of the shrooms but I could eat a bowl of them a day.

      Thanks for stopping by and boogie boogie.

  16. I have never even heard of nitrite free bacon. Where do you get it?

    1. In our area Wegmans, Aldi, Tops and Big Bird all carry uncured bacon. I like it because it's less salty tasting.

  17. Sounds hopeful.
    And there you go, I didn't know you made quilts. Are you going to show any of your quilting work on this blog?

    1. I think I have in the past but I'm not sure. I love working with fabric or yarn. Do you quilt sew or play with yarn?

  18. I much prefer painting but belong to a number of textile groups and am "encouraged" to make something for their exhibitions.

    1. Today I'm resting and I have a box of fabric in front of me. Not sure what I'm going to make yet. Another dog rug or a quilt for the bed.

      Painting sounds fun. I've not tried it but once a long time ago.

      What kind of exhibit is it? Is it like a show and everyone goes and looks at all the other stuff and drinks tea and eats yummy food?
