Last night my husband surprised me by making dinner. He's not the foodie type, but lately has gone nut-so. He cooked us steaks with fresh mushroom gravy, and mashed potatoes, and it was fantastic.
Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, copper, potassium, vitamin D, and other good stuff. I love to toss these in casseroles, soups, stews, and gravies.
On the breakfast plate. . . .
Two farm fresh eggs over easy, toast with home canned wild violet jelly, and lots and lots of coffee.
The weather outside . . .
Cold, but we should see some sun this morning for a short time.
Looking around the house . . .
Like I said, I gotta quit growling like a grizzly bear and just turn on some fun music, and dance my way through this week. Lots and lots to clean up and get ready.
Right now I am . . .

Household tip . . .
You'll have to bigify to read, but as I was looking up the temp to dehydrate my mushrooms (rehydrates great), I came across this page (what rehydrates poorly).

...when Jesse used to beg me for his meal. Lately, he's back to picking out the meat/veggies and leaving his dry food. I'm gonna have to figure out how to step up my game and get him to eat better. Poor guy.
Prayers . . .
