Getting ready to roast a branch of Brussels sprouts but basting first with a glaze of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, fig preserves, garlic, cracked salt & pepper. Going into a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
I was going to visit my cousin who had recently had multiple bypass surgery and I planned to bring him some home made soup.
Me: I’m bringing you some homemade chicken soup.
My cousin: I can make that myself! You’re the best cook I know. Make it beef barley.
I had never made beef barley soup before but I must say it came out pretty good!
I am thankful for the memory of being a little girl when my dad would pick me up for school – we would stop at the Village Den for breakfast where I would get a toasted corn muffin slathered with butter and grape jelly. Yes, I am so grateful for this delicious memory. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Linguine with White Clam Sauce…Last night’s dinner. First meal I was able to cook after my hand cast was removed!
