In preparation for a foray into meat curing, I'm reading and printing out a 2012 University of Minnesota Extension article titled 'Nitrite in Meat'.

This morning Steve and I are going to the Royal Show...it is a big show held here for one week, once a year, with rides, sideshows, showbags, entertainment, big pavilions with all sorts of things inside, it is a great show

I am going to love getting some showbags!

A day of rides, too much food and a ot of walking around....cant wait!

Time to head off now, see you all when we get back
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Sounds great Kylie!

Well, I have finished all my heart tests and am wiped - I didn't do anything really but all the dyes and medication they shot in me and the difficult positions I had to hold for the pictures tired me out.

I see my family doctor the end of next week and the cardiologist the following week. I really am not worried about this - but went through it so friends and family wouldn't be worrying.

I just want to be cleared for driving again - because of the shortness of breath and light headedness they want to make sure I am safe first.

So, I am resting as much as I can and am planning to order in some Chinese food for me.

We are waiting for a few minutes until we go for dinner. We feel like a feed of chicken wings and a certain restaurant has them on half price after 8 o'clock, so we are sitting around eating cheese and crackers for another 15 minutes so we don't get there too early.

Working on recipes for several dishes I'm making after yesterday's shopping trip.

I got parsnips and carrots and roasted them along with a peeled whole eggplant and a whole acorn squash.

I've finished a gorgeous pot of butterbeans reheating on the stove; it's got kielbasa, andouille, and bits of meat from the smoked pork neck bones I cooked in it.

I started a cucumber salad with slices of cuke soaking in Italian dressing. I'm going to add some balsamic vinegar and honey.

The acorn squash will be sliced in half, scooped out and heated in the microwave with garlic butter inside and maybe brown sugar on top.

I'm planning a pork stew. I chopped the roasted parsnips and carrots. I've got the bone in portions of 3 pork steaks, with plenty of meat on them.

I'll let that one wait until tomorrow.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

I'm all by my lonesome with a glass of wine and the laptop. Its been a busy couple of days here and I'm glad to have some quiet time just for me. Ken and Bugs are off at the football game and Maddie is at work. I'm stuffed full of delicious stir fry and am thinking about going out to get some ice cream for dessert later.
