Pie for breakfast.
Ham sandwiches for lunch.
Ham dinner from leftovers.
A big pot of ham and beans. That will have to wait a couple of weeks. A few months ago I had an infestation of little black bugs here in my apartment. They were concentrated in my bedroom around my pantry closet. That was the first time in the 21 years I have lived here that there has been an insect problem. Well, except for a few fruit flies during canning season. Anyway, I finally discovered the bugs were coming from my dry beans. Tossed out the beans - problem solved. I will order beans next week and make enough ham and beans for a couple of meals for me and for Duane, and then can the rest.
When I go to replenishing my stock of dry beans, I believe I will freeze them for a week and then vacuum seal them. That should take care of any future creepy crawly problems.
My landlord knocked on my door a short time ago to let me know the water would be shut off while they fixed a pipe in the basement that had sprung a leak. Not a problem. I store cases of bottled spring water for drinking and lots of 2 liter soda bottles and large juice bottles of water for washing up, etc. The lack of water gave me a really good excuse to postpone laundry and to spend the time playing with green and purple yarn. Not that I needed an excuse . :)
I have been glancing out my windows now and then, waiting for the snow to start falling. Between now and Tuesday evening we are supposed to get 6 - 8 inches of the stuff.
