We're sated. That smallish turkey fed our small crew a good many days. I got a load of meat, soup and stock off the little fellow (or gal) and can safely say we've had our poultry quota for the month. What a blessing how one bird can provide prolonged nutrition!
And now I'm ready for a good salad, thank you :)
I'm also learning it's ok to see the same ingredients in different incarnations (or not) repeat themselves frequently, and not always have to vary every meal. The most stretched foodstuffs? Turkey and pinto beans...they are finding their way into a lot of things. It's now that I'm appreciating the variety that some homecanned goods would bring to our same meals now, if we'd had a garden and canned up some tomatoes, relish, veggies, and fermented goods. It's a lesson I'll learn from, hopefully!
Just finished knitting my second cap with the Knifty Knitter, pics tomorrow. They're better than I expected for a first try, but still not very polished. I'm trying to figure out how to tie off the ends strings without it being visible. My daughter loved hers, though, and I bought some cheaper yarn to keep going with some more...I'll see if it's the type of yarn that makes a difference...hmmm.
I joined Facebook today and have no idea what I'm doing. I'm such a technology rebel. I wouldn't know a Blackberry from an Ipod. Maybe this is the stage where I sit down and declare that the world will go on just fine without my advancement any further in "progress." I was quite content never knowing how to program my VCR. Not having any TV reception for the past 5 years may have warped me into an odd old bird, ha!
Errrr, I said bird...
Hold the turkey, please...at least for just now!
