Hello everyone !
So this is my first day without isa, and so far so good ! imiss her of course, but i think its also good for me to be alone in this environment for a while. Its funny how polar opposite this day has been as compared to the rest of the week- no english today, no girls today ! i was surrounded by french men- yikes !
Today was big bread day ! so i got up at 630, o wait let me back up- last night i slept on a piece of heaven ! i took my mattress and put it over isas and i realized she had a box spring under hers ! now my bed is bouncy ! i havent had that for about 2 weeks ! its sick !
So anyway, got up had breakfast (yesterday at the store i bought some granola/mueslix so i had cereal !) did the bread thing for a while.i stayed quiet most of all of the time. But it got made- in between one of the rounds i made dough for flour tortillas. After we were done making gallettes on the griddle thing, i did tortillas but more on that later !
So, bread bread bread, a little siesta in there somewhere, had gallettes for lunch, for my dessert round, i had it wwith banana and chocolate chips ! mmm ! then i got the cows, milked the cows (all by myself ! im kind of proud !) it was cool too because about 4 little kids sat on the milk tank and watched me as they munched on their petit pain chocolat. Got pictures of that ! then pee pee came in the room and all the kids ran out of there pretty fast.
So did that, then got hay out with phillippe, watered and gave milk to the calfs, etc nightly routine.
But then, i came inside and started a being a chef extrodinaire ! i started by making the bircher mueslix, taking the apples putting them in little slivers, ditto for pears, chopping bananas, adding yogurt and finally my cereal.
Next i started some rice, but thats boring. However i DID find soy sauce ! so that makes it a tad more exciting. Only a tad.
And then, for my master piece i took the tortilla bits and layed them as the first layer of what would soon become heaven in a dish. I took ground beef, onions, garlic, and found some hot pepper seasoning and layered it with more chips, cheese, tomatoes. Once that was done i put it in the still hot brick oven to keep warm. Once everyone was ready i went out in the garden and got some fresh lettuce leaves, chopped them up, and finally yogurt (but its not flavored, so its more like sour cream)
So how was it…. Awesome ! i havent had anything really spicey in a long time, and this was perfect ! when it got too spicy i mixed it with rice and the mueslix and it was perfection ! the kids dont like spicey food (didnt know that before) so they didnt want to try it- but im sure if there tongue even had one part of it, and they lost their fear of spicey foods, they would fall in love ! might have been a little hot for marielaure and phillipe, because they kept on blowing their nose throughout. But i thought it was very good. I give it a solid a !
Ok, im really tired- i think ill sleep in tommorrow, because its Saturday !
Love to all !
