On my own

My husband went hunting yesterday and left me to my own devices. I love being on my own to putter around the house doing a little of this and a little of that. And more importantly eat the things I love, like Swiss chard, brown rice, roasted eggplant and tomatoes. I don't know why but when my husband is home I feel compelled to cook the things he really likes and not as many of the things I like so when he's not around and get to cook what I want when I want.

He left quickly yesterday because of some miscommunication between the hunting party so the hen house did not cleaned as planned. I was up very early this morning, took the dog for a quick walk then back home for a cup of coffee while I made some oatmeal in milk for my chickens, did I mention that I love my chickens...they get spoiled. While they ate their oatmeal I cleaned out the hen house. It's not very difficult and it takes no time at all because their house gets cleaned every week...I know, I know..I love my chickens???

Well my reward? Two fresh poached eggs on home made bread.

What a great way to start the day!!!

Your breakfast looks so yummie and healthy. Hope he comes back with some food for the freezer. Hope you have a relaxing time while he is gone. Hugs..

I love it when I get time at the cabin alone. Some days Wayne goes down to help John while he is building his cabin. Rarely now, I get to spend a night or two alone to eat and do whatever I want! - Margy
