Dinner was good. I cooked the Farro in the rice cooker. Then I sauteéd some broccoli, red bell pepper, mushrooms, chopped red onion, and garlic in my infused olive oil. The Ferro comes out very creamy, like risotto. I topped the Farro with the veggies. GOOD!!!

Had a snuggy fire. Chatted with Jeannie, Linda, & Patty. Watched Blue Bloods with a cat on my lap. (Harley) The Bruise was in and out all day but slept all night next to me... First picture.. he is wary of having the camera in his face! You can see the size of his polydactyl paws!

All I know. Made earrings yesterday.... Patty wanted some..  

Need to do laundry today..... Happy Saturday. Ciao.
