I watched Seven Brides For Seven Brothers today too. Oh, all those red haired boys! I also got a good chuckle thinking of how absurdly unlikely it would have been to see a group of strapping, young, pioneers break out into song and dance at every...and I do mean EVERY opportunity. Still, I laugh everytime I think of "those sobbin' Sabine women!"
Other than that, I did a little cooking...
For lunch, some orange ginger chicken with carrots and broccoli. I've become a bit more bold with spices and seasonings...at least for my minor cooking skills. It's the first time I've used ginger in something that didn't need a coating of frosting! I was actually really happy with the results. I hardly ever use a recipe and cook like my Nana did by the "add it till it's right"method. Fresh oranges and zest really make a difference.
Supper was chili...which i love to make. It's easy and you can have done quickly or let it simmer for hours. It's also one of those "whachyagot?" kind of meals when it comes to ingredients and spices...and it turns out, a little grape jelly mixed in the pot adds a touch of sweetness and helps set the heat. Who'da thunk?
