Today we went to the U District Farmers Market. There were gorgeous winter veggies, and cheeses and meats and baked goods and honey sticks for Zack. We came home with a Savoy cabbage, a bag of multi-colored carrots, and a fresh free-range organic chicken, all of which are in the process of becoming tasty dinner at the moment.
We also got a few honey sticks for Zack, some cheese, and smoked salmon. And, finally, Z talked me into a splurge: cinnamon butter. I put most of that up in the freezer to harden in an ice cube tray, so that we’ll have small portions when we want to have a treat. I also made us two slices of toast with butter that were shared with the neighbor kids, who were over playing.
After we got home, Z went over to play with the neighbors, and I gardened for an hour or so, setting the daffodil bulbs (finally!) and moving a poppy from the back yard to the front. I hope the poppy deals with the transplant. I could feel the stalks and roots cracking and breaking as I set them in the ground. I know poppies resent transplanting. Hopefully these make it; I set them to anchor the corners of the retaining wall.
The plan for dinner is roasted chicken with carrots, which is disappointing me by taking FAR TOO LONG to cook. I finally siphoned off most of the stock, and it’s cooking better now. We’re also having Tyrolean Savoy Cabbage, which is delicious. I snook some out of the pot.
That’s a picture before the cooking. Hopefully it’s done now. I’m going to check.
