My mood the last couple weeks has been somewhat antisocial. I wrote some blogs, and they really reflected my mood, so i didn't post them. I may later, once I have gained some perpective and can rewrite them to be not o...negative...or I may just keep them and add to them when that mood strikes again, which it will, I know.
But today I'm feeling pretty good, and accomplished, which is a nice combination.
So, I will share with you my meal plan (always a safe post) and some love you/love you nots:
Saturday: Roast Beef, potatoes and baby carrots. We actually cooked 2 roasts in the slow cooker , so that we can make beef pot pie, and have enough for Roast Beef sandwiches for lunches this week...yum.
Sunday - Family Reunion. I love potlucks. I am taking BLT Cucumber Cups, and Peaches and Cream Cheesecake.
Monday - Hamburgers and Corn on the Cob
Tuesday - Grilled Cheese and Fries
Wednesday - Penne and Sausage
Thursday - Pizza
Friday - I'm not sure if we'll be home for supper so I haven't pre planned supper for Friday.
It does look like a "crap food" week...I am trying to use up stuff we have on hand and it's been so hot that this week I am going for "easy" and "nobrainer" because after a long hot day no one in this house is really interested in a big meal.
I love you...
Naptime That may sound cruel, but i really do love it. I love the quiet for a couple hrs in the afternoon where I can sit on the couch and read, or meal plan, or watch MY show on TV, or facebook...I love those couple hrs of stillness and quiet, and peace.
My Recipe Binder Awhile ago, I posted that I had clipped the recipes I liked out of magazines I had been keeping for years. My plan was to get them all into a binder, organized by main course, dessert, potatoes, salads, etc. This is coming along quite nicely, and is putting lots of great recipes at my fingertips, easy to access. This morning we are having one of those finds for breakfast - French toast with brown sugared peaches.
Hydrangeas They are my favourite flower and I have 3 hydrangea bushes out in full bloom right now. I think they are just beautiful.
I love you not Stuff that is available in the USA, and not here. Makenna is wild about Littlest Pet Shop toys. She has asked for a Littlest Pet Shop Backpack and Lunchbag for next year. I have never seen any of that brand around here. A quick internet search finds some on Ebay, but shipping prices are more than the actual buying price. They also have them at US stores like Target and Toys R Us, but in some cases its online only, not in stores, and the American websites don't ship to Canada. The Canadian Toys R Us does not carry them. I do have a wonderful friend in Ohio who found a lunchbag at her local Target and is willing to ship it to me...but...all this for a lunchbag for a 6 year old? really? I could just get her one of the hundreds of fairy ones they have here in town...but why can't they just have that stuff here too, not just across the border? She also wants a Littlest Pet Shop Birthday Party, and I found LPS invitations online, but again, nowhere locally. I could order them, and pay silly shipping charges, but again...she'll be 6...it is really necessary to spend $15 on birthday invitations that will get thrown out? Why can't they just stock them here too? Canadian kids like to play with the same stuff American kids do. I don't get it. While we're on the subject, why can't Target come to Canada?
