LOCATION: Our tiny house in Retama Village, in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Back to sun. High 68
The weather fluctuates a lot here. It was 85 earlier this week, then we had a freeze warning last night. I brought in my planters of basil and mint to make sure that they continue doing quite well.
No swimming today, but tomorrow should be up in the 70s again.
We bought a new truck! George had been talking about replacing our Dodge Ram, and he went to the dealership just to “look”. A few hours later….. we now have a 2020 Chevy Silverado. My only request was that it be silver – to match the Airstream.
After picking up the truck, we went to a seafood restaurant for a lunch celebration. Cajun and Mexican seafood. Reallly good! https://dirtyalsbayougrill.com
DINNER: I made up a recipe that turned out pretty well. I had some turkey burger that I sauteed with onion, garlic, and jalapeno. To that I added a bit of tomato paste and lots of dried oregano, and some of my fresh basil. I stirred in some cooked orzo, then topped with kalamata olives and feta crumbles. Side was a salad of sliced cucumbers in Greek yogurt with a bit of turmeric and cumin stirred in.
