I'm not posting much today. It's my day to go with the dog on her morning walk. And then I want to cook lunch. And I also have to finish painting, or finish helping to paint, the damn kitchen radiator.
For lunch I'm making turkey chili. That's a turkey thigh cut into small dice, cooked with onions, garlic, celery, carrots, oregano, hot arbol peppers, cumin, and other spices. And then it's simmered with some tomatoes and their juice, along with some cooked pinto beans.
The damn kitchen radiator might be ready to put back up on the wall by this afternoon. And none too soon, since temperatures at Saint-Aignan are plummeting. We are going to need to have some heat on, whether it's the boiler and radiators or just the wood-burning stove. Our low Saturday morning is supposed to be 3ºC, or about 37ºF.
And now I just realized that on Saturday morning it will be my turn to walk the dog again. Merde. Where are my long johns?
