Friday night was grocery shopping.

Saturday was [ profile] iraunink's mother's Christmas Party in the afternoon, putting pork shoulder in the crockpots for pulled pork, and an anniversary party.

Sunday was shredding the pork, reducing the liquid for use this coming Saturday, three loads of laundry, and my first ever risotto. [ profile] iraunink declared we could do risotto again.

It's your basic wood steps nailed together. There were a bunch of nails that I've hammered down multiple times - this gets especially annoying when shoveling in the winter.
So, last week I picked up some stainless steel deck screws, and replaced a bunch of nails. I haven't used all of them - I expect I'll be replacing more in the future!

Today I got four loads of laundry done and cooked dinner - tabbouleh and roasted root veggies.

The tabbouleh used up the parsley and mint from the back yard, I used quinoa for the grain. I got carrots, turnips, and beets at the farmer's market yesterday - combined those with some onions we had on hand, cubed it all, tossed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and cumin, tossed in the oven at 450F for about 45 minutes (or was it an hour? whatever) - together, they made a good dinner, and we have enough leftovers for a couple of meals.

I took today off - we'll be shopping, cleaning, and (hopefully) packing books.

Tomorrow we're hosting the Minn-StF Meeting. The menu includes

* Vegan Curry w/ Brown Rice
* Sweet & Sour Meatballs
* Carrot Cake

Then on Sunday, we have to clear out the master bedroom. Next week they're repairing the roof, tearing the wallpaper off the master bedroom, repairing water damage (if needed) and painting the walls, and painting the dining room ceiling.

It's going to be a long weekend.
