Mustard is yellow.  Or at least has yellow colouring in. We have a brown mustard that they call French mustard  I have never seen anything like it in France.  I always by my mustard in France, you can get it  forte, strong or douce, mild, but they are all yellow. 

Today my so in law did chichen korma and rice for lunch, but it seemed to have much  more vegetables that chicken. As we had a large lunch Kay and I only had a snack for supper.

Yes, I know mustard is yellow in color. But we differentiate in our house (and many recipes do, as well), by referring to regular mustard as yellow. Because then there is the spicy brown, which, while yellowish, is closer to brown. Then there is deli mustard, which is even more brown. All in our refrigerator, so all get a different name, yellow being my favorite, deli my mom's, and spicy brown my hubs'.

I've never tried korma, but the lady whose Big Mac salad recipe we used has a recipe for it I may try. We don't eat Indian foods, so it will be a different thing for us.

Korma is very mild. It has a lot of coconut milk in it.  It is not my favourite, I prefer something a it more spicy.  I don't know of any Indian restaurants in our town, but we have at least two Nepalese restaurants. We have a lot of Nepalese in our town as mostly retired Ghurkas.

I did omelette again today, but with smoked salmon and tomato.

Well, we've got our winter now. It snowed a bit last night - woke up to about 3 inches or so. At noon it began snowing again, and, while it's tapered off, it hasn't let up. According to the weather app, it is supposed to snow til 5 am. A bit of rain is supposedly mixed in with the snow right now. While I don't love snow, I don't hate it, either...although after Randy's slip and fall just over a year ago, I get kind of panicky thinking about him being out in this.

He made it to work with no problems today, but called off for tomorrow. Our van is in the shop, so he's been using my mom's little car. The van is fixed now - fuel pump replaced - but the weather didn't permit us to pick it up. So hopefully we'll be able to get it Friday. Heh - we need it for Sunday, to pick up the girls, especially if the two little boys come with them.

Anyway...with the snow and cold, chili sounded tasty for tonight. So that's what I made, and we all enjoyed it.

Randy is back on his keto/paleo/Mediterranean eating plan - he took off for the holidays, and it's been a struggle getting back on. But this is his second day. Tonight I fixed fish, a veggie medley, and bacon wrapped onion rings. He enjoyed dinner.

What does Randy do for work HC?

Sorry I didn't see this until now. He works for Home Instead as a home health aid. He no longer works til 9:45 on Fridays. Clients come and go in this business. He is able to work part-time, so he can study properly and do his church stuff.

 

I made a pork roast in my Ninja foodi again the other day. Randy really likes it done that way, and it's quick for me. And it lasts him several days. Last night we had steak. Yum, yum! Tonight we'll probably have fish (Randy and I are heading over to Port Townsend early to take care of some church business and hopefully do a little visiting, so we're probably going to a fish place for dinner)..

Church fellowship lunch today.  Ella celebrated her 100th. birthday.   Good number attended.

Ella was originally brought to our church coffee morning by Giselle a Belgian member of our church some years ago and has been attending whenever she can since then.

Tonight I'm making Beef Barbacao "lasagna." I'll fix the roast in the instant pot and then shred it. For the lasagna sheets, I have palmini (hearts of palm) lasagna. Just like with regular lasagna, I will layer the beef with the sheets, adding cheese to the layers.  We've used palmini linguine before and Randy likes it. We'll see about the lasagna.

What are palm hearts like?  I am not sure if we have them much over here, but I see cans of them often in French Hypermarkets'

They are crunchy out of the can, but can get rubbery if they aren't boiled for a few minutes before using. I haven't tasted them myself, but Randy likes them really well as a pasta substitute.

Last night I made "disappearing chicken casserole."  It's composed of cream cheese, mayo, sour cream, shredded cheese, green chiles, and shredded  chicken. VERY tasty. I think it would make a good bread dip.

Tonight we will be heading out for an early birthday dinner at Red Robin (early so we can make it to church on time).

My mom made spaghetti tonight. My oldest niece loves my mom's spaghetti and brings the stuff over for her to make once in a while. Today was that day. She put aside some of the meat sauce for Randy to use with his palmini noodles.

And I have a cold...ugh

I made spaghetti today.   I did a vegetarian one for Kay and a meat one for myself.  I made enough for a few days, but when I served, I accidentelly served both vegetarian. I will freeze some.

I also have had a cold for the last two days.  I have had a sore throat and lots of coughing and sneezing.   I have been a lot better today, though.

No I was not well several days before that.  Had leftovers today.  Still some left for tomorrow.  I will probably top the sauce with mashed potato and call in shepherds pie.

We usually eat with my daughter and family on Sunday, and I had two salmon sides in their freezer.  I said they could use them tomorrow as they have a number of visitors for lunch. I said I may not have it as I think I may have developed an allergy to fish.

Tonight I did home made pizza

There is a bakery that is doing meals for those self isolating in Ashford.  They charge a very reasonable price, my daughter said they do it at cost.  She and her husband delivered three of the meals today,  They do them twice a week on Thursday and Sunday,  My daughter, Mary said they may be able to use the church kitchen.  Mary is a coordinator for local help groups.

Yesterday we had a get together at our house and our daughter and son-in-law cooked all of us great meal of chicken, potatoes and gravy, a nice salad, bread, and a cobbler for desert. All of us had a wonderful time of food and fellowship.

I still have half of my pizza dough in the fridge so we will probably have pizza again for one meal.

We can't have get togethers as we are in Lockdown.  We are only supposed to have those who we live with in the house. We are not supposed to have family members visiting.  Our neighbours have ignored that over the weekend as they have had large family barbecues for the last three days, 

Every church and place of worship is closed, the first time that has happened for 600 years, when King John had a fall out with the pope. The Archbishop of Canterbury did a sermon on line from his kitchen.  I didn't listen to it, but I don't suppose it was very inspiring.

Today I had lunch with a pastor friend of ours and the maintenance worker at church (also a personal friend of mine). We had a fine Chinese lunch with one of my favourites, cashew chicken, with  brown rice, and egg rolls. Always enjoy a good Chinese dish and the fellowship of a pastor friend.

We had steak-um sandwiches tonight. Steak-um meat (brand name, thin beef), fried peppers and onions. Put all on a hoagie bun, cover with cheese and broil til cheese melts. We like ours with mayo and A1. (tonight was a "cheat" night for Randy)

How is your wife doing, Mike?

Today I did cous cous.  I wanted to do lot of gardening this morning as rain was threatened by the forecast.  I got the meat and the vegetable stew from the freezer and when I came back put it in the oven, the cous cous grain only takes 5 minutes at the end. In the end, we only had a few spots of rain but the wind got up in the afternoon so I did some seed sowing in the greenhouse.  My daughter usually gets our shopping with hers , while we are self isolating, in her online order from Tesco so a Lady from church went to Aldi for us which pleased Kay, as they do frozen Cheese and Leek Lattices which she likes, and she doesn't like many shop made vegetarian things.

This is probably not something that many like, or will even eat; but I made breaded and fried chicken livers. Broccoli florets as a veggie. I like all liver, but am really partial to chicken liver.

I've eaten both chicken and beef liver. I like them both, but I prefer chicken livers and could eat it all day long!

I also like chicken gizzards!

Care to give an update on Delia, Mike. I will be in prayer for her and the situation.

Not part of the topic, but since I was asked, While she was in the hospital a year ago, one of the things they didn't tell her about was that she had ARDS, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, which is scarring to the lungs. Had we known that, she would have stayed on night-time oxygen longer than she was, but not knowing, once she was breathing well, and absorbing oxygen as she should, for a while, she went off the O2. Well, recently she began having shortness of breath, not Corona-related, and coughing-apparently she picked up a respiratory bug of some sort, and when we got her to her doctor after about a week of it slowly getting worse, she was only about 83 on room oxygen, (should be mid-high 90's). So we had to put her back on oxygen full-time. The last few days her cough has eased back, and is almost gone, but still struggling with oxygen absorption, so we will be keeping her on for a while, which keeps her from being able to do much right now.

 

Thanks for the concerns and prayers, just going to take a while to get through this-she is irritated by it and upset her doctor never told her about the condition so we could have cut this off before.

Thank you for the update Mike, I will surely be in prayer about her and your health problems. Not being able to breath properly is extremely stressful.

I hope the docs don't list it as Covid19 because of the respiratory and coughing she is experiencing. If I may be of any help just let me know, after all we are just a few hours away.
