Yes, they are, as the sun will set at 4:58 p.m. on the 1st, and 5:32 p.m. on the 28th. Progress! But because it’s in teeny tiny increments until we look outside as the workday ends near the end of February and realize “Hey! It’s still light out!”, we are still bemoaning the fact that it’s STILL DARK OUT. And we have to wait until mid-March for the big hop to DST, but we’re getting there. Slowly but surely.
Meanwhile, it’s still cold for most of us, which means warm, comfort foods are still on our minds and filling our bellies. And if you’re in warmer weather, know that lots of us are jealous.
Everything is turning green, ornamental cherry trees are blooming. Be still my heart.
Patty melt on sourdough, McCain’s fries (pretty good). Mixed lettuce, tomato, avocado, red onion salad with creamy Greek dressing.
With thanks to @Amandarama, roasted potato rafts with Alaskan halibut. Green beans on the side.
I used Yukon potatoes instead of russets - which is what I had in surplus - making a few extra taters, to boot. Simple proccess, and very delicious – halibut is easy to roast without over-cooking. Will prepare this way again.
White tail deer sirloin tip . With souse vide beets . And these fabulous prepared scalloped potatoes from our local grocer . Cheers. . Mostly eating game . This last week. Really good. And the three kinds of tuna caught off the Santa Barbara coast. Mt Shasta is becoming a food gem because of the friends I have encountered.
That is unfortunately not very likely, as she was recently diagnosed with advanced stage cancer in her colon, liver, and lungs. That, on top of her dementia, is not a good prognosis
Her dementia is actually a blessing at this point, as she cannot grasp the scope of her illness.
We’re just hoping to keep her comfortable and pain-free for as long as possible - IF we are able to find long-term care for her. It’s not a great situation in Germany (like many other countries, not enough staff & too many old people) and almost impossible to get a spot anywhere.
Thanks. My sister has been doing all the work, being that she lives in Germany and is “only” a 3.5 hour drive away vs. my living across the Atlantic. We’re thankfully on the same page as far as treatment (or rather not-treatment) is concerned.
