Took DS1 on an errand and a mommy-son lunch date by walking and bus. Good exercise, good kid bonding, lower carbon footprint.
Dinner is a dish I call "MFK Fisher's Leftover Casserole" using homegrown (fresh thyme), homemade (bread crumbs, chicken stock), pantry ingredients (whole wheat pasta, canned diced tomatoes, parmesan cheese) and leftovers (dry-ish roast chicken, onion soup packet a friend left here at Halloween). Came out delicious. Now working on a pot of 10-bean soup in broth made half from homemade chicken stock, a quarter from pasta water and a quarter from canned tomato water, as inspired by Tamar Adler's An Everlasting Meal.
