Friday in the Kitchen

Stuffed peppers yesterday and one leftover for Joe today. The picture of the finished product didn't turn out you'll just have to use your imagination. I'm having a ham sandwich with spicy mustard, Swiss cheese, bib lettuce,  on rye and pumpernickel swirl bread. Along with that we'll have cottage cheese, pickles, cherry tomatoes, and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.

It seemed a good time to get my ginger and lemon tea out. Cold weather always makes me want some different teas. In the summer, I drink iced tea....sometimes with the addition of fruit juice, but when the weather turns cold....out comes my canister full of different teas.

If you notice, my canister is an old coffee canister. I've had this for years and have never kept coffee in it. I love the red tin top....goes with my red things in the kitchen. My cup has a picture of the sunrise on my 76th birthday this year. My son, John, took the picture on his way to work that morning and sent it to me. I had a mug made with the picture on it, so I can remember.

I'm busy today cleaning nooks and crannies. I don't know what comes over me....I guess when I take a look at our junk drawer it gives me the incentive to clean. I don't take credit for the junk drawer. It is packed with an assortment of things....many of which could be tossed. But, I don't dare toss anything in this drawer....or one day we will need that little gadget and I will be blamed for tossing it. So, it remains a "junk" drawer.

I had a delivery that I have been anxiously waiting for. It is going to take me a while in the kitchen to get it ready....I'll show you tomorrow. I think that it was a clever move on my part. No more hints...

  1. Having a cup of tea now while reading :) Me hot tea in the summer but come cold weather, yes!

  2. These look so yummy! I just put some acorn squash in to bake with a roast chicken. We need the warmth today, getting so cold so quick here! Have a lovely weekend!

  3. I love a cup of tea in the afternoon and evening. Ginger and lemon sound lie a great combo. So many to choose from! Do you use a kettle or microwave? For so long I insisted on the kettle...and it's good for refills!

    Am I being rude if I said that all this time we have been blogging together that I have never guessed your age? And that it's a surprise to know it now? You have the energy and interests of someone half your age. Love it!

    Now...let's get on with that secret! Oh...hope you made the sandwich! I'm home and off to the grocery tomorrow. I hope the family likes it as much as I did !

  5. I'm been drinking hot tea again too, Balisha!
