Good 32º morning.
... Gonna be an interesting day picking the SuperBowl combatants!
I got more cupboards cleaned out. Tossed old meds and cold pills. Washed clothes. Exciting, eh? The neighbor's dog, Shiloh, escaped their fence again and was down here sitting in my pasture. Maggie barked at her and she came running. She was sooooo happy. I sat on a chair on the porch and she tried to get as close to me as she could, trying to get into my lap. She loves to be loved on. Guess they never do it. Of course I gave her a treat. I walked to the gate, meeting up with Gerard who was coming to get her. Back was killing from that walking.

Last night I cooked the lobster ravioli in boiling salted water, drained and patted dry, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with Rosemary sea salt.... then fried them crispy. Cooked al dentê some broccoli and carrots. Made a dipping sauce from lemon juice, lemon zest, mayonnaise, and a spoonful of pesto.
Really good, finger food dinner!
