    Well, not as colourful, but I know he'll get a kick out of it!

    I really loved the t-shirt caption on the one that you posted @Lynn49 , it certainly says it all......you're SIL and GS are like cat ladies who cannot resist taking in another stray! ha ha

    I was taking out the recycles and noticed a few brand new blooms on one of our lilac bushes.....so " snip, snip " and now my kitchen has that unmistakable flower fragrance in it! Mind you it helps if you LOVE the aroma of lilacs like I do.

    Omgosh, @walkonby , my Hubby brought me a bouquet of lilacs from our tree the other day and yes, I absolutely adore their scent! Our Mom used to fill our home and bedrooms rooms with huge bouquets of lilacs that she'd refresh often, so I guess that's what makes me mad for them! I wish we had the trees and hedge they had when we were growing up.
    Have you noticed that no one has ever managed to re-create that scent in products? They all have a fake chemical smell that in no way matches that sweet lilac scent!!

    Enjoy your day...is is still dull there? We have brilliant sunshine! For a change!

    Hi ladies! @Lynn49 yes it is rather hrmph weather day, a bright sky but not a sunny one. I am loving that the 2 of you
    ( hi @flemeth ! ) also enjoy lilac scent.
    I think the CNE used to have this god AWFUL stuff that they shoved into weird cone shaped containers and tried to pass them off as lilac?
    It was a LONG time ago that I was a CNE regular, so I don't remember what building this was in, all I recall is holding my nose until I got passed that spot.

    So....in the kitchen today I've almost everything ready for a lovely early dinner, or late lunch with the guys. Depends on when they get up I guess?
    We're shamelessly repeating the souvlaki thing but this time I bought a package of the Naan from FreshCo instead of whipping up our own. I used sk/bn thighs this time, same weirdo spicy corn ribs, a mango salad and homemade deep fried coconut shrimp. DS is gonna flip when he sees the shrimp....one of his all time favourites!

    So I made these ......

    cath007 Ive developed an eye infection, dont know from what or where. I had a phone consult with my doctor (hard to get an in-person consult nowadays) and she told me what to do. Helps a bit but next step is to see the pharmacist for some sort of medication.

    With this eye infection, it is hard to see the screen unless i enlarge it. Hope this clears up soon and i can get back to normal.

    Ive also had the flu which lasted for 4 weeks (not covid, was tested 4 times). I felt totally miserable. Feeling much much better now except for the eye infection. I wonder if this has anything to do with the flu.

    ^^ stop trying to make us jealous about having an exciting day of laundry and floor scrubbing in your back pocket @harbie

    So far my day has been kitchen based. I didn't want to see either of my 2 large bags of fresh spinach or the 2 bags of green beans go south ( those long BB dates I made sure to get meant nothing, I could tell the stuff was threatening to spoil ).
    I steamed up all the spinach, drained, squeezing so much excess water out and got around 1 1/2 cups cooked.
    What a space saver putting that cooked stuff back in the fridge.
    Green beans I did up 2 ways. Pan seared about 3 cups and steamed the rest.
    Two sides at the ready....not sure what my protein today will be.

    Happy Sunday everyone!


    Add-on update here:

    Canada came so close to winning the IIHF Gold this afternoon against Finland. They tied it up near the end of the 3rd to force O.T. but Finland got a power play and scored.
    hrmph....
