Sunday Cooking…

Along with doing chores, I got a lot of cooking done this morning too! The more I do on the weekend the less I have to do during the week! I roasted 2 chickens for food this week for Gizmo and me. Then I took the carcasses and used that to make chicken stock!

I made my own taco seasoning so I had a taco burrito and spinach salad which consisted of roasted squash, goat cheese shavings, grated Parmesan and ranch dressing! I treated myself to a shot of Pendleton with my lunch! tee tee

A loaf of beer bread is in the oven now. I am done for the day and going to just chill and maybe do some more crocheting! We are having a beautiful sunny day! Have a great week friends!

Movie Weekend!

I did all my chores yesterday so last night and today was movie weekend! I didn’t feel like watching regular tv today so I enjoyed these movies! Wow I am almost as old as the Cleopatra movie! I loved it, it had very good actors in it! Elizabeth Taylor and Rex Harrison are classic favorites of course!

I may be a little late seeing Chocolat but so glad I did! Good movie! You can’t go wrong with Paddington either! I have seen Double Jeopardy several times but it was fun to see again! I like Tommy Lee Jones!

Now off to watch some more this afternoon!

Have a great week friends!

Cooked Early Before Heat Wave Hits!

When my late husband was alive, he was a meat and potatoes guy and didn’t like deviations into foods! That is fine, but now that I am with just me and Gizmo, I am having fun exploring new recipes thanks to the inspiration of my Sis Tracy!

Today I decided to make Naan bread and wow it is good! I put butter on a piece and sprinkled garlic powder! Wow so good! It will be fun to use these as a taco shell and put fresh veggies and chicken in them!

I cooked some sirloin burgers for my lunches this week so I am all set! It is supposed to get up to 100 degrees outside today and tomorrow. Yuck! Gizmo and I will be enjoying our day inside with the air conditioner!

Hugz and have a great week friends!

Weekend Cooking and Crochet

I roasted a chicken and used the carcass to make some home made broth for the freezer. I used some of the broth to use up my Napa cabbage and made a small soup out of that! So tasty! I had some fresh dill I didn’t want to go to waste so made dill crackers!

On the crafty side I am using up yarn stash to make a cozy winter warm blanket with this colorful scrapghan! Nothing goes to waste food or yarn wise! tee hee!

Have a great week friends!

Weekend Cooking…

This morning I made a cucumber spinach salad, it is so tasty. For my breakfast I made a spinach pesto omelette for the first time. I read up on how to make them so next time mine won’t come out so brown! I wanted it to be golden. Practice makes perfect!

I completed this cute puzzle too that was loaned to me! In the crock pot was a cabbage/spinach soup for this weeks dinners! I have chocolate mint plant so I made chocolate chip mint cookies. Next time I will infuse more of the mint so it is more vivid in the flavor!

Have a great week friends!
