"Hangin' in the Rain..

Saturday, August 22, 2009

...I'm haaaaangin' in the rain! What a glorious feelin'! I'm happy again!!... "

(not that I was sad before...I just think it's such an upbeat song!)

Yep, for the first time since we started hanging our clothes outside to dry instead of electric-dryer drying them, just after I finished hanging up my first load, it started raining and hasn't stopped! Ha! I keep looking out the window and wavering if I should go rescue them. They are getting an extra clean rinse, right? We totally need this soaking rain, though....so I'm not really complaining. Not to mention, all three of our rain barrels are filled again!!

Nothing much else going on here today. I'm making french bread rolls in the breadmaker right now (i.e. I dumped all the ingredients into the bucket and pushed "start" about an hour ago, and the dough should be ready for shapingrising/baking in about 20 minutes), and we made 2 more containers of spaghetti sauce last night, using our own tomatoes, peppers, basil and oregano! Mr. A was Mr. Kitchen last night- at 8pm, he gets up and suggests we make the batches of spaghetti sauce...oh yah, and a CAKE, too! It has been so much fun to cook together lately- he has never shown such enthuasiasm for chopping and stirring, etc! I am so thankful for him! The one task he still isn't interested in is clean up.... haha!

I'm thinking I'll make up some meatballs for meatball subs for dinner....

Fresh bread? You lucky girl! I would love fresh bread - especially the kind with real flour (which I can't have) instead of whole wheat.

I love love love fresh basil. Mine grows on the front porch and I keep a little cut bouquet of it in the kitchen window to use throughout the week. Nothing smells better!

Mmm, fresh rolls and tomato sauce? Your kitchen must have smelled heavenly.
