I've been negligent

Also, just pretty much cooking and baking the same things: mac & cheese, spicy tomato soup, chicken with valencia orange, eggplant parmigiana, wheat germ bread. The usual. The only "new" thing I can report is simply a variation on the bread. Two small loaves, one of which I froze. Here they are. I'm reminded of St. Agatha, if you know what I mean. If not, that's fine too. Best not to think of such things, in any case.

The other news involves the deer. They're back. Or, just out and about again now that the snow has mostly melted. 

And the pussy willow beside the house has its catkins, so that's a good sign. The tree in the yard seems a week or so behind. But this is progress and I'll take it.

Two days without snow—but now, a lot. Eight inches? More? Something like that. School is canceled, which is almost unheard of.

Here's some roasted butternut squash soup with curry. Sweet and spicy. With an attempt at fancy decorating...

And another loaf of the very delicious wheat germ bread.
