Some twelve months ago or more, our provincial government went on this program to encourage home improvements and spending. We needed a new furnace. The deal was you get a company to come in and do an environmental assessment and tell you what improvements would make you more energy efficient. Well let me count the ways. As I say we needed a new furnace, which was no chump change, and there were a few other things that we could have done to up the ante. I sort of went through the list and pointed out to my husband what was a doable job and not... Sooooooooooo today we are getting some insulation put into our attic, so my feet don't freeze while I stand ironing. My husband didn't feel we needed this, since when we are upstairs, we are under the covers. Well, I made him stand while I ironed in his stocking feet, and he had to put on a jacket. Our skylight it seems did not have any insulation. So after a weekend of moving things out of the way so the attic entry is accessible, I'm sitting here waiting. I don't wait well. I start to do things. Like bake. Made these delicious phylo triangles, just to pop in the freezer. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.
How I do that?
1 pkg. phylo pastry (purchased from the grocery store)
1/2 lb. chopped mushrooms
1 small onion chopped
1 lb.(hot) sausage (removed from casing, and fried)
butter melted, about 4 tbsps.
Saute mushrooms, and finely chopped onion until onions are transparent. I fried the sausage separately and waited until it was somewhat cool. Drained off the excess fat/water, I then broke up the pieces of sausage so it was finely separated. Combine the two. I didn't worry about it being a sticky clump, since the pastry will hold everything together.
So now I wait until they are done, hmmmmm maybe some Celeric Pear Soup, and a little Polenta with roast Vegetables.

I'm having a really hard time commenting on your posts. I love when you visit... For some reason, after my comment, I hit comment and it just disappears. I have the same problem with Valorie Hart's blog. The comment just disappears. I feel I'm neglecting you both, when I really read your posts religiously.
