Fire Extinguisher?


In honor of Mardi Gras (not really), I'm making jambalaya again.

This time I made sure the heat is turned down low, and I have a timer set to check on it.

There's no burning allowed tonight!

I actually thought about making some gumbo. Then I realized that we needed to use the sausage first. J and I actually prefer chicken and shrimp gumbo, over sausage gumbo. So jambalaya it is.

It will be nice after the thunderstorms we had.

Speaking of which, we had a nice steady rain earlier today. I decided most of my houseplants needed to get out in the rain to knock the dust off their leaves, and have a good long drink. It was so much of one, that I eventually had to move them on our porch for shelter. A few plants were looking slightly beaten down, and I wanted to avoid any breakage.

I just took a look at them (I even had enough forethought to grab a camera). A couple are still a bit lazy looking, but hopefully that will improve after I bring them inside to their spots by the window.

Do you think our ZZ plant (left) needs a larger pot? I'd say yes.
That was once a very small plant, but it shot up rather quickly.


Well, what do you know? I didn't burn it this time.
[Pats self on the back.]

See? I can cook (not that this was difficult).
You should smell it too. Mmm.

Want a taste?

Now for J to come home from work. He wasn't supposed to work until 6, but in shipping that happens. Late orders, delayed shipments, problems, and waiting on a phone call or email is fairly normal.

I hear him now.

Off to grab plates and eat.

I just ate, but your jambalaya looks great!

I'm jealous that you have rain. We have sleet. Brrrr. Those plants would have icicles on them here!
