Today I love apple pie plans and gathering all the required elements in one place to make that happen. I love things that work well, especially things I can cook. I love being hungry when I go shopping because often that means that I end up with new things to try and new food adventures to pursue. I love making food that reminds me of my childhood, recipes handed down from my mother and grandmother. I love tastes that take me back to special occasions like Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love that we here in Canada celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend and that’s way too early for it to be a trigger for the frenzy that becomes the “Holidays” in the USA. I love that many of my American friends enjoy the whole holiday thing and some of them dislike it immensely but seem to enjoy making fun of it with memes and jokes and humor. I love that because I am Canadian and we celebrate Thanksgiving early I kind of get to start the whole holiday thing before my American friends can even take a breath so it’s kind of like … “Surprise, I’m celebrating Thanksgiving, you’d better start getting ready.” and that kind of makes me a holiday jerk. 😉
Today I love plans that will make our lives simpler here. I love that we’re getting a small freezer and we’ve decided to stock up on things and freeze when they go on sale or when we make more than we can eat. I love that I’ve frozen things like Macaroni & Cheese before and bacon wrapped chicken on rice and lasagna and other such things, so I know this works. I love that we did some research and found out that it is not a good idea to keep a freezer in an unheated area if you experience actual winter. I love that we experience actual winter and that we have room for a freezer indoors.
Today I love pierogies for lunch. I love days that call for lots of rain but then the rain holds off, kind of threatening but never actually happening. I love how warm it is out today, that it’s actually colder in the house than outside right now. I love that we went to the market and got apples as well as all the usual things. I love that we’re planning on bringing in the dock at the cottage today or maybe tomorrow.
Today I love drinking coffee while I write and the pierogies make sizzling sounds and sweet smells.
