115: Burritos for dinnerPosted: January 15, 2011 Filed under: 365 Life in the Bogs Challenge, Adventures in Cooking, Earth, Fire, food, healthful diet, Healthful Living Plan, home, nature, Photography, snow, Spirit, Walking, water, weather, winter | Tags: birthdays, Burrito, cooking, CookingLight, creek, food, postaday2011, snow 24 Comments
M and I teamed up today to make Four Grain-and-Vegetable Burritos for an early dinner. It was an early and late birthday celebration dinner. Early for M (his birthday is tomorrow) and late for me (mine was last month).
We’ve made these burritos in the past. They are a little labor intensive, making it easier and faster if we team up to put it all together. It’s more fun that way, too.
Remember that resolve I made to sharpen my knives occasionally? I’m thinking of taking it back. After years of using dull knives, I’m finding the sharpened variety to be dangerous. I managed to slice into my thumb while cutting the top off of a leek. Ouch!
It was worth the bloodshed. The burritos were fabulous. Delicious. Really, really yummy. And filling. Very filling. You should give them a try.
Today’s Outdoor Adventures
It warmed up today, into the 30’s. But we had 25 mph winds to go with the warm-up and that made it seem as cold as when it was in the 20’s. There was some thawing of the snow on top of the pond and the ice in the creek.
I did not ski today. I intended to. But M went out early and said it was pretty brutal. The wind created big drifts in some places. Bare spots in other areas. We were supposed to get another 3 inches or so of snow today but the prediction turned out to be wrong. I think it snowed heavily for about five minutes this morning and that was it.
That’s about it from the Bogs for today. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
Oh. Right. One more thing. I redecorated ye olde blog. Whaddya’ think?
Happy Birthday!Posted: May 8, 2008 Filed under: celebrations, endings, home, Spring | Tags: birthdays, graduation, M the Younger 2 Comments
(M the Younger. December 2005.)
Today is M the Younger’s birthday. He’s 23 years old.
Happy Birthday! 🙂
Today is also the day he takes his last final exams. Provided all goes well with the exams (and he seems to believe it will), he will soon be a college graduate.
Congratulations, M the Younger! 🙂
The graduation ceremony is Saturday, but he’s chosen not to go. I’m kind of sorry he won’t be attending and doing that walk up to the stage to receive the (fake) diploma (they mail the real one), but I understand his reasoning.
I was going to dig out a baby picture and scan it, but I don’t have the time or patience to deal with the scanning process today. (My scanner isn’t always cooperative.)
