This past week I made some very tasty victuals.
A delicious chili con carne with beer (Tyranena's Porter) and chocolate on Tuesday.
An amazing beef stew (also with beer, it contained a can of Guinness Stout) on Friday.
The stew was accompanied by an apple pie-thingy. My ten-year-old called it an apple calzone.
Yesterday there was a fantastic lamb casserole dish, which was recreated from a delicious meal I had in Armenia many many years ago.
If only I had some Lavash!!! Bf is on alert to find me some the next time he goes to Chicago.
Oot and Aboot
Boys and I ventured out with my friend Ted to see what they had in store at the Eplegaarden.
It was cold and I was underdressed, so I remember being very crabby.
The boys took a horse-drawn carriage ride around the orchards and pumpkin patch, while Ted and I shot the breeze and I took pictures of all of the marvelously dilapidated farm stuff there was around.
Ted treated me to a bag of golden russet apples (they are a hard eating apple with a difficult to describe almost orange blossom flavour and a rough skin like a russet potato) and a chunk of his honeycrisps. Yum!
