Lazy Monday

A Monday off, a lazy day.

Mother Nature can’t make up her mind today, 

Brilliant sunshine followed with blizzards,

snow filling our view outside

Then the sunshine returns and the snow that fell, blows,

drifting filling the driveway and then blowing away.


Our wind-chimes are singing, the notes clear and pure.

I don’t recognize the song, though I am sure I have heard it before.

We are relaxing today, the weekend was busy.

Today is an inside day, for the most part. 


Aimee and I made lunch, it seemed a feast. Jill watched.

She is determined to, as she says, cook like us.

She just gets so annoyed that we don’t have recipes.

So she takes notes now.



We made a noodles and ground beef soup, I love this soup.

Montreal smoked meat covered with mozzarella cheese,

melted under a grill, on a black bread bun, covered with sesame seeds.

Jill made pages of notes and then sighed when she bit into the bun. 

She told Megan that she could make this now, 

and showed Megan pages of notes. 


Megan asked where she was going to get the noodles.. and the tomatoes.. 

as she read the notes, or the buns and dills that we had on our plates… 

or the wine, that was in the soup, two kinds even, she pointed out.

Jill growled and said she will figure that out too. She is a good note taker.

Megan just smiled and ate her soup, and her grilled bun sandwich… and winked.

Aimee looked at the notes and scratched out wine and itemized them..

she is very thorough.

I giggled.

  1. You didn’t mention that the tomatoes in the soup, were canned tomatoes that you and Aimee put down in the fall, that the onions, celery and green peppers, were simmered in white wine, a Riesling. That the two of you made the noodles, from scratch. Then added a red wine, a Shiraz to the broth, snuck in okra. That the black bread buns, that were marvellous, you made, the amazing dill pickles, that were on our plate, were also made by you and Aimee.

    All without recipes, AND YOU MAKE IT LOOK SO EASY!

    you even roasted the garlic first!!!

    I can make this soup now, it will take me a week… but I can make it.

    Lunch was, though, incroyable!


  2. You can make the soup now? So we can have it next Monday if you start now? 😉

    Did you see that they started a chicken fricassee for dinner with hot biscuits? I like lazy Mondays. 🙂

    Best go take notes…

  3. Sounds like a lovely soup. I am impressed by those who cook by sight and intuition…I am improving but still need a recipe at least by me when I try, like a suggestion. 🙂
