Content: Where is the ham bone? Love you!
Mr. Big Food was to have taken the ham bone (5/1/18) and ham stock (6/19/18) out of his deep freezer this morning before he went to campus, but he forgot.
Ring ring. Ring ring.
“Hey. I forgot. Sorry. The ham stock is in my freezer in a Tupperware like we take to the tailgate, and the ham bone is in a freezer bag in one of the top baskets.”
Trek out to Mr. Big Food’s freezer, lift lid, see things. “Got it!”
“Okay great. Love you!”
“Love you, too!”
Today I am making Sportsman Lodge Lentil Soup and Creative Cooking Spiced Rye Loaves. I’ll start the soup around 10 so that it can sit around all day and mellow out. I’ll time the bread baking so that the loaves will be perfectly warm by suppertime.
Also today, I am officially eligible for senior citizen’s coffee prices. No. I don’t mind cooking on my birthday. We had birthday dinner on Sunday. I requested steak, baked potato, and Spicy Frozen Cucumbers. And boy oh boy did my family deliver!
Mr. Big Food spent waaaay too much on five unbelievable filets mignons which he grilled to perfect perfection, Daughter C & the J-Man out did themselves with the baked potatoes, and as I’ve commented, “Spicy Frozen Cucumbers are a delight as a salad late in the fall when you want to rekindle a bit of Summer in front of a cozy fire.” Though because it was a birthday dinner, Daughter C & the J-Man set the dining table right proper like. They even washed all the fancy stuff by hand afterward!
