Let the Friday Happy Dance begin!

What a week! I don’t know about you, but this was the quickest, longest week that I can remember in awhile. We are in central California, and it is scary watching the Covid-19 numbers rise as quickly as they are. Adding to that is the fact we see people we know posting pictures of vacationing, going out to eat (albeit outside now), and hanging out – all without wearing a mask or social distancing. Don’t get me wrong, I very much enjoy having someone else cook dinner and do the dishes afterwards. At this point in the pandemic, that is a “want” instead of a “need”. As long as we aren’t completely locked down and can go to the store, our household will be fine.

The week started off rough with slicing a bit off of my thumb with a mandolin on Tuesday while prepping apples to dehydrate. Luckily, the gouge is more towards the side of the thumb pad instead of in the middle. It should be healed by early next week. Yesterday I knocked over a lamp while vacuuming and broke the glass on it. No one got hurt, and I was able to get all the pieces cleaned up before the dogs tried wandering through. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for a replacement glass over the next month or so.

I got another batch of cookbooks cataloged, and hopefully will get it uploaded early Saturday. I have to get the new Worst Cooks bingo cards out first though. What a wild ride this season is! The final four go at it this weekend to narrow things down. It is pretty close; no one really stands out as being better than the others. I have an idea on who I think makes it to the final two, but I’m not going to say. Creating the bingo cards and learning how to use Instagram to do a live feed has been interesting. I have fun with it, and will eventually get the hang of merging multiple platforms together.

On to the weekend! I am looking forward to the last video posting for the Fresno County Library summer series – Versatile Veggies. I picked a few that are quick, light, and easy to do. The average daytime temperature in the summer is around 100 degrees, and the idea of fixing something complicated in the heat is not fun. I am pretty happy with the results, and listed a few swap-outs at the end of the recipes for variety. If you try any of the recipes, let me know what you think.
