Yes, it's almost summer. The sun is shining, the neighbors are mowing and the Ogre is grumping. Ogres do not like the great outdoors, bugs, bright sunlight, temperatures above 67 or humidity higher than refrigerator levels.
That's why there have been so many Yeti sightings in Nepal, it's cold in the mountains. Yeti are excellent stone craftsman and carve out elaborate dwellings inside the very mountain. Yeti and Ogres are very similar in this regard. They both also hate Zombies. But the Yeti's true enemy is the vampire. It's a whole pecking order thing.
The knitting is going well. While I supervise my pigs in their kiddie pool, I have been knitting away at the Gryffindor sock.
The Pigs are also enjoying some wonderful homemade strawberry jam. Ha! No, I don't make jam, that's Ogre work. This jam is actually from our Share of the Farm CSA thing with Avalon Farms Homegrown. It's beautiful. I was going to eat the whole jam jar myself, but I really wanted to share the experience of strawberry jam with the pigs. Normally, I steal the jam from PK, but honest jam is probably a better thing to share.
That makes me think of things I do cook. Pretty much, quesadillas, spaghetti (although I hate putting that on the weekly food plan, because really, where does that h go), sandwhiches, or mystery from the depths of the crock pot. I especially love crockpotting. I throw something in, and a dinner pops out 8 hours later. Who cares what, just put it over noodles.
Anything delicious is made by the Ogre. He cans tomatoes, he makes salsa, jams and jellies. He'll even make a meal that isn't in the shape of a casserole. I guess I can over look the extreme temperature intolerance for all that good cooking.
