My azalea is blooming so pretty, I wished it stayed in bloom longer! Today I made chicken salad and an oven roast for this weeks meals and lunches. The recipes are from Trisha Yearwood’s Georgia Cooking in Oklahoma Kitchen. They are super delicious!
The chicken salad will be made into sandwiches for lunches!
Happy weekend wishes even though it is almost over! I made the mistake of letting someone talk me out of my treadmill, and I was using my elliptical but it did not work out for me as well as the treadmill. So I went and purchased myself a new one and they took the dreaded elliptical away! Yay, I did my workout today and I am so happy!
Check out my very kewl new measuring cups! I love these, they are like artwork! tee hee!
I made Hoppin’ John salad for this weeks lunches! For my dinner tomorrow I baked a couple of chicken thighs topped with some marinara sauce! Make ahead meals saves so much time!
I am super tired, got all my yard stuff done today because it is supposed to rain all week! It needed to get done. My reward was sitting on my deck enjoying a beverage in the nice sunshine!
My best little fur friend was enjoying the nice weather too! Now time to just relax before bed for the work week!
Cooking on vacation consisted of eating a little better by making salads, doing a veggie saute, tried my hand at making home made fried rice! I also made breakfast burritos to put in the freezer for make ahead meals!
Happiness was being with my best little fur kid Gizmo! Here she was dancing for her dinner! I didn’t do much crafting on this vacation. I need to get back into it but have been enjoying a hiatus from crafting for a while! I finished a very good series that someone special lent to me “Damages” with Glenn Close! It was very very good series!
Back to work tomorrow, boo hoo! Hugz Blondie and Gizmo
This week winter is still going strong giving us very cold temperatures! Because of that it is a perfect time to make home made chicken and dumplings soup! I baked chicken thighs the other day so took meat off the bones for my soup, made home made dumplings and wow! Very tasty comfort meal!
To be frugal, I put the bones in a ziplock bag for the freezer to use them when I make home made broth! There is still a lot of tasty goodness on those bones and not to be wasted! Home made broth in the freezer is awesome to have on hand!
Have a great day and here is to hoping for warm spring days!
Today is the last day of my vacation, back to work tomorrow. I made a blueberry breakfast cake! Looks fabulous!
My Gizmo has such a personality, here is her pose when she shows me she does not want me to trip up on her fur or trim her toenails! She gets this sad look like mom see my sad face, don’t trimmies on me! tee hee!
