Lately, I've been missing fall in Maine with the beautiful colors. It's been so many years ago that I lived there, yet the memory of the trees changing each fall is still vivid in my memory. The colors here in North Dakota just don't match the intensity of those I remember in New England. One day I will have to go back to see if fall is really how I remember it. It would be wonderful if we could take a motorcycle trip there in the fall.
Today is one of my rare days off. I'd planned to clean but we're having a problem with rust in the water so that's on hold so no cleaning or laundry today. I'm working on putting items up on Facebook Marketplace to start downsizing a bit before we move the house so that was my morning project. I got a nasty comment almost immediately after posting a pair of shoes that I'd only worn twice about his wife having gotten them without foot fungus. I mean seriously - what is it with people any more. I'm sure the new shoes his wife bought had been tried on a time or two before her purchasing them.
YUMMY AND WARMING FOOD:
As winter is starting to show her colors, I've been craving more substantial food along with warming drinks so my cooking has changed in the last couple weeks. I'm craving a warm drink after supper and before bed, so warm apple cider with a pinch of cinnamon or cardamom and hot chocolate have started making an appearance.
Venison steak with fried potatoes and acorn squash. This was soooo good! A little steak sauce and perfection! I used my air fryer to cook the venison steak and it came out perfect and didn't taste like dry leather.
Homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese dippers. Another cold-weather meal. (Sorry, bad picture.)
This is a new (to me) set of plates I bought. The dessert plates and cups have a barn on them. I paid $10 for 4 cups, 4 dinner plates and 3 bowls. I love the bowls as they are perfect for soups and pasta dishes. I imagine you'll see a lot more of this set.
Mr. B and I went on a shopping trip to Minot at the beginning of the month. Mr. B is remodeling the furnace room in the shop and needed supplies. He took me to a really nice restaurant/bar that I would have never found. We'd already been seated before I saw this beautiful fireplace or I would have asked to be seated by it. The fireplace is open on three sides so you can have a view of it from nearly anywhere.
The food was really good. I had a french dip sandwich with sweet potato fries and Mr. B had a burger with regular fries. We were so full from the meal we just ate a snack for supper after we got home. I hope we can go back here again to try the supper menu.
I think I might have finished a couple more audiobooks but I can't remember which ones. I'm currently listening to the following books.
