Veal with Mushrooms, Slow Cooker; our house

One of the things I miss during this pandemic year is not having a regular supply of mushrooms. I only do the shopping every 2 weeks, which means I only get to buy things like mushrooms and avocados every 2 weeks. Most of the other fruits and vegetables will last long enough but I can’t stock up on mushrooms.

On the other hand, I’m really enjoying having that free day every other week.

As is, we indulge in lots of mushrooms for a few days – and maybe a few avocados, too.

Then we go back to eating winter squashes……

Veal with Mushrooms, Slow Cooker

I haven’t been on a walk in 2 weeks. It’s been raining. When I had a walking buddy we would set off with rain forecast, and often walk in the rain. Somehow, I feel rather silly walking in the rain during a pandemic lockdown all by myself.

Besides, my paperwork allowing me to be out of the house could get wet.

Actually, now that I think about it, I shouldn’t feel at all strange. It makes perfect sense to walk in a cold winter rain in 2020.

I have hopes for tomorrow. It’s supposed to be sunny and we can leave the house during the day without the usual paperwork.

I took this photo when I was still confined to a 1 km radius from our house:

I usually am much further away. Our house is the part on the right. The left is the barn – yes, we have an attached barn. The dark bit across the front is the pool.

Now that the sun sets so much earlier (5:30) I tend to pay more attention.

I’m usually out with Guapa for the last walk of the day. This time of year we get to enjoy both a sunrise and a sunset every day on our walks.

Lucky us.

  1. It’s beautiful. The view, your house…wonderful.

    Your recipe looks delicious! I think I told you my mushroom story. How they used to cost $1.49 for a half pound until someone decided to stick Organic on the label and double the price. No kidding! They’ve always been organic for crying out loud! They’re grown in dung. Marketing…

    • I feel the same way about bottled water and the ridiculous claims. But sucks that they do that to mushrooms. I was once shown the underground growing area for mushrooms for a Chinese restaurant…. very interesting – and organic!
