If you open the freezer, it may oink . . .


I might want to remember in the future that a buy-one-get-one-free sale on packages of pork chops is not license to stock up to the point of being ridiculous. We had five cookie sheets of them flash frozen and one cookie sheet was a frozen in a double layer with parchment paper in between the layers. This many chops also required a lot of parchment paper to protect the frozen bones from piercing the FoodSaver bags when it came time to vacuum seal them.

Still, there is a certain satisfaction to having them all stored away safely. It must be something like canning vegetables and storing the glass jars on the cellar shelves against the winter months.

Except, we don't have a cellar . . .

We are having yams, pork chops, and a green vegie for dinner tonight. It was 54* degrees around 6 a.m. just in case you where still sleeping. Whew, I found my jacket, shoes and a long sleeve shirt in back of my closet. Ok, I wore flip flops with the list above. Mark noticed all the attire matched except for the shoes when I drove him to work this morning. Compfy.

54 degrees? That's all? We're doing the hard-freeze stuff last night and tonight. Worse tonight tho, from 9pm to 10am. Poor, poor plants. Say g'bye.

It's pretty, tho. White ice all over the grass and outlining the leaves on the azeleas. It looks like snow in thicker patches.

Is there truth to the rumor that folks don't wear flip-flops outside when the temps get in the teens? You betcha!

I saw a woman who had accompanied an older patient coming out of the doctor's office today. She wore a tailored jacket over a sweater, dark woolen-looking trousers, and black velvet strapped flip-flops. I guess the velvet made them winter attire.

And yes, I was sleeping at 6 a.m. my alarm was set for seven.

The only place to find frost down here. right now, is on the inside of the freezer door at BJ's.

There is also frost in our small fridge at work.
