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!

Weekend Cooking Simple Style

Friday I came home and made a simple hamburger. Saturday I slow cooked a whole chicken in the crock pot, which yields yummy meals for me and my fur kid Gizmo. It also provided a nice small batch of chicken soup! Sunday I made sausage and egg sandwiches. My rose provided some nice blooms and I finished my Debbie Macomber novel!

Vacation Is Over, Got A Lot Done!

My extended vacation is over and it is back to work tomorrow. I made this vacation a very productive one! I painted my hallway, then went through my whole house and got rid of a bunch of stuff for goodwill! I made my limoncello, finished crocheting the minion for someone special. Today I made rice and home made Mac and cheese for the freezer and for this weeks meals!

It feels so good to get my house in order! It feels so much better! Each vacation another project will get done around here!
