Moving On

Is there a way to archive posts so that I do not see them, but they are not deleted and gone forever? Much of this past year is much too painful for me to review.

Let me explain... No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

It's been a long and angsty road, but I've realized that bbwoof is not going to change his mind, is not going to explain to me what went wrong -- and even if he would do so, he has not ever made the sort of commitment to me that I expect and deserve.

One day last October I accepted this, and absolutely gave up on him.

That same evening an attractive man, someone I'd been lightly flirting with, suddenly started flirting back. A lot. And a week later, at a Halloween party, he and I started being "us".

The more I get to know Sveinn, the more I realize how remarkably suited we are for each other. I love getting to know him!

So it turns out that Halloween is still lucky for me, after all.

What's Cooking at Turf House?

This is a no-money-left week. Stretching the budget through creative use of what I have on hand!

Sunday: Dinner and Downton Abbey at Mom's house
Monday: Clear-out-the-fridge Curry.Slowly brown onions and garlic with garam masala in olive oil and butter. Add that cup of leftover chickpeas, a half-package of spinach, the end bit of tomato paste, some water, brown rice, and half of the leftover turkey from the freezer. Simmer until it smells SO GOOD.
Tuesday: Omelet made with peppers, sheep's cheese, and home-made gravlax.
Wednesday: The rest of the leftover turkey with hollandaise sauce, served over rice and peas.
Thursday: Fried eggs on Spanish rice.
Friday: Dinner out with the family.
Saturday: Dinner with Sveinn.
