Tuesday - Cloudy and cooler. Hurray!
A good day.
I got up this morning and it was cool. Yay! There were big dark clouds outside and a wind for a change and it just wasn’t hot today. I am so happy. I have been quite depressed from the heat. I just don’t like it. Give me cold any day. Keep the snow though!
I got started on dinner around noon. I was making stuffed zucchini in my crockpot. I halved the zucchini and then hollowed them out. F came home in the middle of my cooking and ate a bento. He’d left his Thermos at home this morning so he wanted to pick it up He brought me a bit of duck to eat, so he did think of me!
After he left, I continued my cooking. I browned the ground pork and then added the insides of the zucchini which I chopped up, and added half an onion plus a clove of garlic. I cooked it all for a bit, then took it off the heat and cooled it down a little and added a little spaghetti sauce. I spooned some of the meat mixture into the zucchini shells. I placed the shells in the crockpot. I had to layer them, but all three zucchini fit. I covered the zucchini on top with the remainder of the spaghetti sauce. I let them cook between 5 to 6 hours on low in my crockpot. I realised later that I had meant to add some breadcrumbs but had totally forgotten them. It didn’t matter anyway!
I had a quiet afternoon. I decided to do another postcard, so I wrote one out, scanned it and then ran it, plus a gift for a friend to the post office.
I came home and relaxed for a while. F came home around 6:00 and immediately tried to change the TV channel. I was a bit perturbed because I was watching ER. Grr. He went and had a nap for a while. I made sure he wasn’t upset with me and then got on with dinner.
I washed the lovely looking orange tomatoes we bought this weekend, and then set the table. I added a bit of cheese to the top of the zucchini and let it melt, but decided I wanted more. I took a few of the boats out carefully, put them on a tray, covered them with more cheese and then put them in the toaster oven for a couple of minutes. Then, I called F for dinner.
We had stuffed zucchini with salad and orange tomatoes. I thought it was very nice. F said he liked it, but a bit later he said that it felt heavy in his stomach. It didn’t stop him from eating something else later on though!
This evening was quite quiet. F watched a lot of Olympic sports, I charged my iPod and then listened to a few podcasts, which I have enjoyed tremendously. I’ve listened to both Canadian and British ones and they are just so interesting.
That’s about it for me. I had a good day. Tomorrow night I am going out with a friend to see a movie. I hope everything will work out for us. Wish us luck! Night.
