Good 40º foggy (raining in GP according to Brian) morning. I SLEPT THE DAY AWAY!!! I didn't get up until 7:30!!! OMG. Well, yesterday I woke up just after 3am and never could get back to sleep so, this is what I needed. Strange to wake up and it's LIGHT! Weird. So, will play catch up for a bit with the blog etc.
Today is 'soup day'. I had a turkey sandwich with mayo, lettuce, and Jeannie's cranberry relish for dinner last night. AWESOMELY good!
Today I will strip the carcass
that I had cooked all day yesterday in broth and make soup. I have mushrooms (many kinds), wild rice, broccoli, pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and anything else I can find in the fridge or cupboard. Drooling now thinking about it.
Yesterday I put some broken up rolls out in the back yard, as they were old and stale so thought the turkeys would like them. Not. But later I heard a crow making 'strange noises' and when I walked into the dining room there he was on the barn roof with a couple of the rolls!
(Sorry not a good picture) He was happy happy and the rest of the rolls soon disappeared.
Gloomy and a little drizzle yesterday and today looks the same...
