Tomorrow is the last day of the month. January is almost over. January, the month I was going to get so many "Winter Projects" accomplished. I'm sad to see it go. February gives me only 28 days, the stingy little month, so I need to kick into high gear if I'm going to have the winter projects behind me when Spring arrives.
I did get one thing on my list done, and that was sheet rock my shipping room. I rearranged the room, consolidated the way I organize/store the tools I make and sell, so that I could have more floor space, and that worked. It worked so well, that I think I will be able to move my glass studio in. It would be nice to have that more easily accessible, so that maybe I will get back to making beads and buttons again. The sheet rock is on the wall, now mud/tape, then paint. Paint is my favorite part...of course. I'm not sure if I'm going to get a color all it's own, or use some leftovers from the other paint projects I've done, but colorful, clean, temperature controlled, all things my studio has never been, will be exciting no matter what color I use.
I was frustrated about dinner tonight because I forgot to pull something out of the freezer to defrost. This is much more of an issue for a locavore than one who eats from the store, for if you eat from the store you probably have a package of something or other that will make due in a pinch...but I do have eggs!!
I whipped up a batch of the spelt biscuits I love so much, and then made some creamy cheese sauce, added some crushed, hardboiled eggs to the sauce and spooned it over the biscuits. Ideally there should have been a veggie, but it was very good and hearty!
My Yard: Eggs
Local: Milk, Salt (Maine Salt), Honey (for the biscuits)
Localish: Butter and Cheese (Cabot in VT)
Not Local: Pepper, Flour, Baking Powder
This was definitely a "pantry recipe", the kind of thing you whip up from the staples you have on hand. I like that kind of meal.
