Busy Day, Busy Day

10 Jun

“Busy day, busy day.” Back in the days of black and white TV, that was part of a commercial for Jell-O Instant pudding. I can’t remember the rest of it, something about “no time to cook” and the cartoon lady running up and down the stairs.

I got up with the Squire today – very unusual, as our body clocks are set on different schedules. I can’t eat for an hour after I take my Synthroid, so I set the timer and caught up on my email and a couple of blogs I follow while he ate his breakfast and then headed over to church to do Property Warden stuff for the better part of the day.

Tomorrow is the Sunday School picnic, so I made up a double batch of mac and cheese, so I’d be sure to have something to eat. Started off by getting a batch of bread going, and then while that was doing its thing, I got the water boiling, and cut up the cauliflower. My macaroni and cheese contains chunks of cauliflower – obviously – and I use one-third pepper jack and two-thirds sharp cheddar.  Got that all put together, and tried to figure out where to put it in the fridge. It is balanced on top of several pickle jars and a carton of cottage cheese. Be careful when you open the door!

Yesterday, I picked up some rhubarb at the farmer’s market, so I got that diced and mixed with sugar and honey, so the Squire could make his almost world-famous “Rhubarb Wonderfulness” when he got home. (Recipe upon request.) By the time he came home, I had the bread cooling on the counter and the rhubarb mixture in the still-warm oven to draw the juice.

I have no idea what the poor man had for lunch, but we had stripped and made the bed when we got up, so I kissed him Hello and went up to take a nap. When I came down he had the rhubarb ready to bake tomorrow morning, and had run and emptied the dishwasher. Definitely a keeper, that one. Yesterday I had taken down all of the living room curtains – we have five windows in that room – so I shoved them into the back of the car and took them to the laundromat. He helped me get them all on the line when I got home, but they are still out there. I hate having things hanging out on Sundays, but we washed the living room windows and hung the sheers, and by that time we were both dead on our feet, and the “evening dews and damps” have set in, so that’s just the way it’s going to be.

I have just made a rather annoying discovery. I have no idea where WordPress is headquartered, but it is 9:45 on the 9th here, and this post shows up as having been written tomorrow! Tempus fugit, and all that, but trust me, it’s Saturday.

    My grandmother made rhubarb pie. It was the most gawdawful stuff the world had ever tasted. I never understood why people liked it. It literally turned your face inside out.

    It wasn’t until I was in my late-30’s, early-40’s when it was revealed to me that she only used rhubarb for the ingredients (other than the crust stuff). That meant no sugar or other sweetener of any kind. I can honestly say, “I’ll try it,” without feeling like I’m lying through my teeth.
