It's Raining-- A Lot
I spent the day in my raincoat.
And I was inside the greenhouse.
The rain was just pounding down on the glass roof and leaking in through all the places that leak in a glass greenhouse. Maine needed a good rain as wells in the northern section of our state were going dry. So--keep the rain coming. We need it.
I am having trouble getting the upper hand with my allergies. The itching eyes. The sneezing. All the usual allergy symptoms. The Zyrtec makes me sleepy. So, at work yesterday, I was sort of zombie-like. Today, not so much. But still not really alert.
I did have a good lunch both days. It's amazing how the quality of my work day improves with a "good lunch".
I am going to share the pasta sauce recipe I have been making for G lately. One chopped onion sauteed in olive oil, then add a package of Jimmy Dean's precooked sausage crumbles, a shake or two of red pepper flakes (if you can't find the spicy crumbles). While that works, clean and slice a package of button mushrooms (or open a can of sliced mushrooms). Add the mushrooms to the pan. Let it fry--get some of that brown stuff going on the bottom of the pan. Add a can of Trader Joe's marinara sauce (28 oz). Simmer while the water comes to a boil for the pasta and you cook the pasta.
Easy and G says it's delicious.
