Slurpy Sunday

January 4th, 2015 at 11:10 am

Yesterday we got an inch of a "wintry mix," meaning a very wet snowfall.

Yet today is very mild, well into the 40s, and this is to be followed very soon by the icy cold blast now covering the rest of the country. So I KNEW I had to get out and walk today as it will be the warmest day for the rest of the week.

I should have worn some boots, but was too lazy, so I slopped through this for most of the 35-minute walk:

Evidently, I'm not the only one walking today.

A bend of the path.

This is our municipal center, which I pass by after getting off the walking trail on the way back to the car.

In other doings, I returned my neighbors' bread machine and regained some more space in the kitchen cabinets.

I also made another batch of granola, which should keep me munching for 2 weeks, and I made a berry cobbler so I could use up the rest of the fresh cranberries I bought around Christmastime. I also used up a bunch of frozen organic berries I got from BJs. The cobbler/crisp came out really well; it's the same recipe I use for making apple crisps, except that I cut the cooking time in half since berries don't need an hour to soften as the apple slices do.

I started a big project taking all my tried and true recipes which are now handwritten on little 3 x 5 index cards and kept in a small kids' lunchbox, and typing them up on 8.5 x 11 paper and putting them in plastic sleeve protectors in a 3-ring binder. Those little index cards are just too tiny to read, let alone squeeze in all the directions.

    How's the project coming with the recipes? Are you going to use dividers like recipe boxes do to have main dishes, vegetables, etc.?

    Yep, although since I'm mostly vegan these days, my categories will be:

    1. Cold summer salads
    2. Soups/Stews
    3. Veggies
    4. Desserts
    5. Dressings/Sauces
    6. Beverages

    That's kind of how my walk to the library was on Saturday = partly clear sidewalks, but mostly slushy. We got more snow overnight, so I bet if I'd gone out walking today it would've had a lot more snow/slush.
