A Full Day...

Today much was accomplished around the house. I cleaned out the gutters which was no small feat, mowed the lawn, did some weed-whacking, and helped clear out a tangled over-grown patch in the front. It was hard work, but good work. When we were kids we used to help my dad with his lawn care service. It was hot, sweaty and often times grueling labor – and I hated almost every second of it. Since I don't have to do it every day and it's only for one lawn and not twenty, I appreciate it more and a chore I used to despise, has actually become enjoyable.

To end the day, we had a nice meal. To start we had a French onion soup that was cooking all day. Just before eating we added toasted baguette slices with melted Swiss cheese. Very tasty.

We also had fresh corn sliced from the cob tossed with a little sweet paprika and curry, a fresh cucumber and tomato salad, and a steak poached in butter. Everything was delicious and the perfect way to wind down a very full day.

Fresh corn tossed with sweet paprika and curry sounds delicious! (making mental note to self...)

Curry is one of my new favorite spices. Earlier experiences had led me to heavy hands who over-curried. Nowadays, I find that curry, if used in moderation can be a great accent and bring out all kind of undertones.
