Inspired by joe and Behemoth, here is "home did" pimento-green olive cheese. About half a pound of white cheddar cheese curd, several ounces sharp cheddar, 4 oz cream cheese, 4 oz pimentos, 2 tbs mayo. Husband said it was still too bland so we tossed in several tablespoons pimento stuffed olives. Has authority now
THANK YOU BOTH! Who knew potted cheese was such a piece of cake!
We live at a wonderful time...I guess. Everything that is worth concern in my body was discovered peripherally in a CAT or MRI that was ordered to check out another situation. As in, "Your xxx is just fine, however we noticed that your yyy shows some zzz." At my age, I just smile and scamper.
joe, husband thanks you. I remembered a splat of leftover beans in the fridge. Sauted large slice of homemade bread in olive oil, spread with warmed smashed beans, poured a glass of white and delivered him a 10am tray. A warm comforting snack after spending the morning hauling broken limbs to the chipper pile.
I recently described arriving in the country to find the top quarter (35 feet) of our redwood snapped off by high winds.
This week, we arrived to find 2/3 of an olive tree ripped off, a large limb from another down, major damage to several oaks. Neighbor lost two giant oaks, one of which crashed onto a 200year old out-building, the property's original home. Some of this was wind damage, most was from heavy wet snow aka Sierra Cement.
Indoor temp has ranged from mid-40s to mid-60s, which now feels downright toasty.
