I have the latest New York Times vegetarian casserole in the oven at 250 degrees. The baked beans and kale. It smells really good. I am really hungry. Four hours of baking, so not a "quick" dish. In between drives to the hospital (doctor visit, lab visits) I had a chance to chop the vegetables and assemble and then just tuck the cast iron casserole in the oven and leave the house while it baked. I thought I would post rather than snack on corn chips which is what I really, really, really want to do. Emotional stress = salt intake.
G is sleeping. I am having a "quiet moment" after walking the dog. I have the Pilates box downstairs and tomorrow my daughter will help carry the machine down the stairs and G will supervise packing it into the box. Then we will take it to UPS. I am sad about it's departure but a replacement will be arriving eventually. I started reading my book while G was having a lab test and I think I will go back and read some more. Riley is chewing a bone. Quiet. Which is okay with me.
