Live & Eat
Sunday. Delicious Sundays.
Today was filled with good food and good living.
I woke up early this morning to the sound of pouring rain. Rain, rain, rain. It rained solid and heavy here for at least a day. I spent the quiet of the morning baking a pie - using leftover phyllo pastry that I had needed in a recipe a few days ago. Barry woke to the smell of cinnamon and apples snuggled in warm pastry. We both enjoyed a slice early morning. I used this recipe.
In the afternoon we took to the yard to do some raking and organizing. The garden beds are now ready for the cold and the last of the winter crop seeds have been planted.
We roasted a lovely chicken for dinner with some potatoes and carrots. I currently have stock simmering on the stove (leftover chicken, the carcass, carrots, celery and spices). I'm already dreaming of the wonderful soups it will yield.
Here is a sweet photograph of the pug. She lasted a few minutes outside before I scooped her up and brought her in. The cold of winter here is too rough for this pug.
We are now snuggled down for the night with a movie on and a warm blanket to keep us cozy.
Have a wonderful start to the week friends!
P.S. I'm linking up to the Homestead Barn Hop here.
