So much for the warm days...

Hello, everyone.

We've gone back to the chilly weather again. Today it was cloudy all day long, with some bits of rain, and I don't think we got as high as 55F.

The chickens didn't even want to get up and come outside for their breakfast! But by afternoon they were a little more chipper. When we let them out for their afternoon walk, the guineas did their usual squawking chorus as they ran from the pen to the back patio.

My sweetie went to Ruben's grocery on Saturday afternoon and found paleta (shoulder) of pork, Spanish serrano type, and a nice little tetilla cheese. So we had fresh barra bread and the "ham" and cheese for dinner. Also a salad and the first of the baby broccoli tops from the gai lan row in the garden. (Cooked with the leaves that came along, as there were only about 6 tiny broccolis in the picking.) It was a lovely dinner and we especially enjoyed the serrano style ham!

This was dinner in Santiago--barra slices with teta cheese and serrano ham.
This morning I used the last little bits of the barra bread to make pain perdu: French toast.
