Still reading this...again...Holly Black is a genius...ColdTown has those great short chapters that are so juicy that you can't stop reading...love this book.
Today is a lovely stay at home day...I am making a very special dinner for Den...
These cucumbers that his mom always made but this recipe is from Kalyn's Kitchen. She uses South Beach Diet techniques so her recipes are really lower in fat and still yummy!
And this...Unstuffed Cabbage! This recipe is everywhere! It's really meat and cabbage and tomatoes that are simply simmered together. Both of our mom's made Stuffed Cabbages and Stuffed Peppers...a Midwest thing? I tried once and destroyed them...not good at rolling stuff up and actually having it stay inside! So this is the one that works for me!
We had heat and humidity yesterday that was scary! And then lightning, thunder and downpours! I think more of the same today!
Roxie does not understand rain the way Lucy does. Roxie loves our routine of putting up the kitty tent and sitting on the deck. I read...she watches ducks, herons, geese, and squirrels! She squeaks at the deck door and waits for me to carry her to her tent. But with a wet deck and rain any second...she just looks at me as if to say...why?
Buona Lettura! Have a great day!
