This morning’s walk was a real pleasure. The sky was clear after the rain we have been having. The humidity wasn’t bad and there was a wind out of the west. I pretty much see the same people walking every morning and everyone makes an effort to social distance and greet me. And I do the same.
I spent the morning cooking. First I put a rub on the spare ribs, which I will cook tomorrow. Next, I made a tomato, corn, red onion, radish and celery salad, with a lemon and olive oil dressing. The recipe for the dressing called for lime juice. I didn’t have fresh limes or lemons, But I had squeezed and froze some lemon juice earlier in the year when my friend’s tree was ripe with fruit. Then I made potato salad with homemade mayonnaise. When I was on the Whole30 diet last Fall, I had bought an immersion hand blender to use when I was making mayonnaise, but never used it because I found a mayo without sugar at Publix. Since I am limiting my visits to the grocery store and I needed mayonnaise, I decided to make my own. The immersion blender made it so easy. I had perfect mayonnaise in less than a minute. And so yummy. I may never go back to store bought.
After lunch I went out to my workshop to work on the kits for my class on Monday. I cut copper sheet metal into 3″x6″ pieces and punched out some 1.25″ circles from the copper. I also cut some wallpaper from a sample book to wrap around the copper. And I gathered a few more things to put in the bags. Tomorrow I will pack up my supplies.
