Of a new year, 2021, which we hope will be far better than last year.
Sunrise in the east, now that we don’t have massive evergreens blocking the view.
We have spent far more time enjoying the peace and quiet out here and doing some new, fun things while staying safe at home.
Like my husband getting into cooking.
He made cioppino using Ina Garten’s recipe from her Cook Like A Pro cookbook.
Including making his own seafood stock.
I was impressed with the flavor but he needs to “up” his food photography skills.
We can’t see the depth of shrimp, scallops, mussels and cod in the bowl. Make no mistake.This was one amazingly satisfying meal. Fun to do while we hang out here at the house.
We decided that once a week we will tackle something new with him cooking.
We will patiently wait for our turn to get vaccinated, so we can get back into a normal life. In the meantime, photography, bird watching, amateur radio and cooking will keep us occupied.
Here’s to a better year, a new dawning.
