found us sitting outside on the deck
at Quarter Deck Cottage...
before the rains came
followed quickly by an Arctic Front
bringing with it some SNOW!
"Snow Day Soup"
I added more water as some of it evaporated while it was simmering
probably about 2 cups
you could use vegetable broth instead but I did not have any on hand.
warmed me up.
After the soup making I decided to bake a chocolate banana cake and found a wonderful recipe in my newest cookbook Good Taste by author Jane Green.
The kitchen looked like a bomb had gone off after the busy day in the kitchen so I put the dishwasher on and popped the kettle on for tea...
time for a bit of a rest.
At least that's what I thought....
until my dishwasher started spewing copious amounts of water onto the floor!
Quickly grabbing towels and turning off the appliance I mopped up the mess
then laboriously emptied the water inside the dishwasher using a ladle and a bowl.
Still faced with all the dirty dishes
I proceeded to hand wash the entire load...
By the time I had finished
the tea was cold
so I brewed another pot and started researching new dishwashers.
I've decide on a Bosch 800 series
the quietest machine on the market and it has a great rating.
We ordered it and will have to wait about 10 days until it arrives and we will have it installed and the old one carted away...
it gave us at least 10 years of good service maybe 13 we cannot remember
I hope the new one will perform better and last longer.
Hope you are keeping cozy.
It's chilly here but the snow has melted
our furnace is on and working hard
I am wearing a down vest.
Single paned windows and minimal insulation does not keep us toasty warm
unless we dress in layers.
