    I just wanted it OFF! Like NOW!!

    Tuesday

    While supply teaching today I had 3 students try to sneak INTO my class!
    That's a first

    After school I bought a really good ($80 on sale for $22) non stick 9.5" frypan. Just in case I decide to try the weird Tater thing. I'm not re-seasoning my cast iron for a few dry fried potatoes! Who knows, maybe it will be good for eggs...

    I took the Butterflies for a short walk in the back yard. We went to the garden and picked the last of the squash.
    About 30 of them! They filled a wheel-barrow. I should go out and bring them inside...

    Eats:
    Chai with whipping cream
    Left over chicken breast and cucumber slices (the chicken was DRY)
    Another Chai with whipping cream
    Raspberries
    Real Fruit Gummies
    Pistachios
    Pinot Grigio
    Veggie soup: cauliflower, potato, carrot, onion, garlic, tomatoes, fresh rosemary, tons of spices, cream, bacon, cheese (2 bowls)
    fried banana with mascarpone cheese and a drizzle of maple syrup
    Spearmint tea

    I'm full

    over full

    and I burnt my tongue on the soup

    I see that

    How odd to have students trying to sneak INTO your class. Hahahaha. Maybe you're just THAT good!

    Nice score on the nonstick pan. I haven't tried the dry fried potato yet, but the pan will be good for eggs for sure. My cast iron is not well enough seasoned for eggs just yet. I'm working on it.

    That is not only a first, but a great compliment. I hope you made lots of jokes about it in the staff room and that they reached the principal's ears.

    Reheat chicken or turkey with a sprinkle of water on them. Helps with the dryness.

    If you lived closer, I would find some way to invite myself over for dinners. Seriously...

    I think it was more along the line of "What can we do to the new supply teacher? Will she notice?"

    I have 2 cast iron, the "best" seasoned one is the smallest, perfect for 1 or 2 eggs.
    I found it hanging on a nail in the barn at our old place.

    It might be a compliment if I was a full time teacher
    They were just "testing" the supply teacher.

    I'll have to try that. I ate it cold.

    If you lived closer, you could come over anytime!

    Wednesday

    Last night I just covered the squash with a blanket.

    I slept in till 9:30
    I took the Butterflies for a walk out to the garden where they proceeded to hunt mice. Lily was at the far end of a long narrow trough, tugging at the weeds. Josie was at this end looking quite worried about the trough that was moving all on it's own!
    Silly girl.


    I cleaned off the squash and put them in the entry way. I had 32.


    I now have 31. Lily thought she would try to eat one. Silly girl.


    I made potato soup. Plain, boring, no fat, no bacon, no cheese potato soup. (It still had carrots, onions, garlic, tomatoes and spices)
    I can't quite do the plain dry potato...
    This was my lunch:


    I drove 1 1/2 hours to Sarnia for a teacher union meeting about changes in hiring procedures. On the way I stopped at the Meadery and bought some mead. There were 30+ people at the meeting. I knew no one. I heated up another bowl of soup at the union office and ate it before driving to London to catch the 2nd half of my Daughter's 1st indoor soccer game. Tie 1-1. After the game we bought some indoor soccer shoes. They are bright orange!


    We stopped at $tarbucks on our way home. I bought a plain Chai Tea (not a Latte) but I put a tiny bit of cream in it...

    So does that mean my "Tater" day was ok? or did I mess it up with the tiny bit of cream???

    I'm so glad you feel "content" in your new house. It's such a lovely feeling. The very first time I came to my house, looking to rent a room, I just felt at home. And I've never left... I ended up buying the house off the landlord. It will be a sad day indeed if and when we ever sell up and move somewhere else.

    I'll have to get back to the boards to find out about this tater experiment you're all talking about.

    Love your pics.

    So you're doing the tater thing? How long for?

    Edited to add: I adore butternut (pumpkin, we call it) squash. I would be eating that everyday, I love it roasted with butter and skin left on, it has a delicious nutty flavour. Mmmmmmmm....

    I would say there is no 'try' with that squash. She ate it!

    I'm starting to understand how nice it is.

    Oh, sure! Tease me with roasted buttered squash while I'm trying to do the Tater thing!!

    So what do you call pumpkins?? (the big round orange things we carve into Jack o Lanterns) like these:
