northern california in early december reveals a lingering autumn ..
the evening temps drop and overnight to morning near freezing.
the other morning i took evelyn the precious pooch for a stroll
in such temps. this required gloves and a jacket.. once our trek
was completed my ears rebelled. then inside for a bit of warmth.
candid shot of the elderly girlie.
wiping her nose with her tongue...
she's a charmer, that one. wink.
today is my market day ..
the hubs requested burgers so tuesday night his request will be granted and he'll do the grilling i'll just do the prep work. he'll want a fried egg atop .. and bacon. me? whole green chilis and tomato! yUm. saturday morning i butterflied a chicken and after dressing it with olive oil, sage, salt & pepper, cut up lemon, and a splash of dry white wine (the liquor cooks out and leaves in its wake a lovely hint .. i roasted it in my clay baker covered with its lid. mmmm!
we had a bit of it for lunch with steamed broccoli. the rest was de-boned and prepped for stock. early sunday morning i saute'd veggies and with the white meat and stock, put it all in the crock pot for dinner. soup aroma is near intoxicating don't you agree?
