Kersey is still on stall rest. Fortunately, we had another warm day so I spent all morning outside with her on the veranda.
|This was my view from the couch. Not too shabby.|
|I read a whole stack of magazines while sitting here.|
The weather this winter has been strange. It rained an unbelievable amount in December and was bitter cold. This month, we have had hardly any rain at all and a lot of sunshine. With daytime highs around 60 and the lows in the mid-30s, it feels more like spring. Brett has already started mowing the grass which is getting thick and tall.
Since I felt like a slug today, I made a fairly ambitious dinner. I think I was born with a spring in my butt. I just don't do well with sitting around doing nothing. I roasted some beets and tossed them with a honey lime dressing for our salad. The main course is roasted chicken with cognac (and a very fancy french name). Here is my mise en place:
|onions, carrots, potatoes, thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, cognac|
|First, the veggies were tossed with olive oil|
|Then I added the chicken and the cognac.|
The whole thing was covered and went into the oven (very hot) for an hour. When it came out, I boiled down the sauce a little to thicken it. It was quite yummy. The recipe said that it serves 4 but only the wings were left. And the beet salad was to die for. Brett pretty much inhaled his.
Tomorrow afternoon Kersey can get dirty and play with Sedona. Yes!!
