Been busy as a bee today!!
Made zucchini pie this morning. I was planning to make two, only to discover I didn't have enough zucchini. Whoops. Time for a Plan B. (We had 2 pie crusts). So I made a bacon and Swiss cheese quiche.
I also made maple walnut ice cream, which turned out exceptionally well. We got the kitchen tidied and shined up. I made 2 pitchers of iced tea (one with fresh mint, one without), and more ice cubes. While the ice cream was churning, I phoned Carol. We had a short chat, since I had to get the ice cream out of the machine. Short & sweet was fine with me.
I brushed and combed Nougat and then used the waterless shampoo to freshen her up. I don't do that great a job, not like the groomer, but she's a shade or 2 lighter and smells nice at least. Getting her all spiffed up took awhile, which she wasn't thrilled about, but she was a good girl.
I saw Paul this afternoon, and he asked if we wanted some kale. I said yes we did (I'm going to put it in the salad). He said he'd go get some, but then he came back and suggested picking it in the morning when it was fresher and not wilted from the heat. I agreed.
Tomorrow we have to set the table and make the salad. I want to take a shower, and we have to warm everything up, and put out the condiments, etc. I'm really looking forward to Connie's visit.
I forgot to mention something that made me happy yesterday. Brother went to the Portuguese bakery to get rolls for tomorrow. He came home and announced that the rolls had just come out of the kitchen when he got there, and *they were still warm* when he got home!! (The bakery is just down the street). I couldn't resist having one for breakfast. Nothing like a crusty, pillowy, really *fresh* roll. I slathered it with plenty of butter, and it was so Yummy!!! 😋
Now I'm going to kick back and do nothing for a while.
