Miyoko’s Chao

Our first time trying Miyoko’s Chao vegan cheese. This was the Aged English Smoked Farmhouse. I though it was really good but it was too smoky for Nova.

New Flatware

I decided meal time would be more fun with a variety of mismatched flatware/silverware. So off to the thrift stores I rode in search of just that. First was forks and then on subsequent trips I’ve gotten spoons and knives. All in varying styles and patterns.

No More Pond

I decided to fill in the small pond in our back yard. It was in bad shape and I was tired of maintaining it. For now the goldfish and a few plants are in the stock tank till we figure out what we are going to do.
