My Day Off

I'm off from work and playing in the kitchen.  Made maple ham, apple sauce and as I type, a small cauldron of chicken soup simmers on the stove.

The maple ham we ate for dinner (lunch), the apple sauce is for a big batch of apple muffins, and the soup is for tomorrow.

And now, my Wonder Woman mug is filled with organic decaf and it's time to do paperwork. Tonight, it's the bookshop and Wegmans for an ingredient run. Meanwhile, there's a snowman gaming comic posted at The Geek Gazette.

Enjoy the comic and eat well.

  6. Hey Lurker, nice to see you. It was pretty good and I usually don't like it. But I added a bit of cream to the glaze and that really made it good. Sorry to read about your knees. Teleporting you some ham, straight away.
