Mr. HB is outside repairing a defective door sill which has allowed rain to seep in onto our kitchen floor.
It's a day to cocoon and keep warm...so I am making soup.
Easy Peasy Salmon Chowder to be exact.
Saute several strips of cubed bacon until crisp.
Add in diced onions, celery and carrots and cook until soft.
Add about 2 cups of water and a large peeled diced potato.
2 cups of leftover salmon ~ you can substitute 2 cans of sockeye salmon
Simmer until potato is soft and add in a bottle of V8 juice.
(You can use a tin of tomato paste instead if you prefer.)
Season with pepper and about a tablespoon of dill weed.
Simmer on low for about 45 minutes and serve.
I use low sodium V8...
(the maid needs to clean that ring off the silver tray)
"The Maid" has been busy elsewhere in The Humble Bungalow...
I've been de-cluttering and reorganizing the bench seats in the dining room...
these seats have a habit to be a catch all and it was time for me to get on with the job.
I took everything out, vacuumed inside and then went to Target, "the Red Store" as Isla likes to call it, and purchased some bins.
Not very glamorous but they do the trick.
Life is ticking along here, nothing out of the ordinary...
I'm feeling content as I watch Mr. HB work his magic
wearing a cozy wool sweater while the door is off it's hinges.
Mr. HB will have worked up an appetite for lunch.
I've got a mug of hot tea and a copy of my favourite magazine...
I'm planning on a quiet afternoon.
How about you?
What's new in your neck of the woods?
There are new fall plants in the planter boxes that line the sidewalks.
Love this frothy frilly plant
I hope you find some beautiful moments in your day.
