Work IS being done.
In the week and a half that mon mari has been home he's designed and started work on the frames and doors.
The day he was discharged we stopped and bought the hinges.
The doors are lined up, in various stages of completion, in his shop in the barn.
But, not photo-worthy.
He took a spin on the lawnmower today. With any luck I can turn over that job!
He also ordered a new glass table top for our outdoor table; checked out some staircases for the next stage and installed my oven.
That's the big news. Finally, after 9 months I have a working oven! I even used it last night… And it didn't start on fire or blow up or anything!
Now, that's progress!
All of the above is a lot more than I expected; he really can't stand to be idle!
For the record: he does take frequent breaks and the occasional nap.
And I try to feed him well….
Grilled, Marinated Chicken Breasts
2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tbs red wine vinegar
3 tbs ketchup
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, oil, garlic and oregano. Put chicken breasts in a glass baking dish and pour marinade over. Let marinate for 15 – 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
Cook on barbecue grill for 8 – 12 minutes per side or until done, basting with any leftover marinade. Remove chicken, slice at an angle in 1/4" (.6cm) slices and serve.
Next week – photos! (God willing!)
