Hello, friends! I didn't realize that it has been a week since I posted. Every day is full of stuff to do around the house and I have been sleeping a lot. I really didn't mean to ignore you. I hope you all have been doing just great.
This next week is going to be so busy with doctor appointments and of course we are slated to have a huge snow storm beginning tomorrow night and lasting until Tuesday morning. We are supposed to get 9 to 12 inches (approx. 30 cm). I am NOT looking forward to that. And our high temperatures have been in the 20sF. (approx. -5*C). This has brought on several asthma attacks so it has not been fun for me. But we carry on as best we can.
This week I made a cake from scratch for the very first time. It was my great-grandmother's recipe. And when I tasted it, all the memories came rushing back of her making it. It was so good. Joe loved it too. We have about a quarter of it left.
I am working this coming month on getting my kitchen under control. Let's face it, this house is a mess and I need to get every room under control. But I think the kitchen is the easiest and so I am starting there. I will just work my way around the house and hopefully by this time next year the entire house will be done.
But let me show you what I have had for dinner the last few weeks.
On Sunday, January 10 we had a honey ham steak and zucchini with mushrooms. I had a small container of applesauce on the side. That ham was really good.
Tuesday, January 12th we had pork chops done in the air fryer, asparagus and french fries. Joe made the pork chops for me.
Wednesday, January 13, we had macaroni and cheese and some Italian meatballs. I buy the meatballs frozen. They are really good. I use the Pioneer Woman's recipe for my mac and cheese. It's the best recipe I have found.
On Monday the 18th we had spaghetti and meatballs. Yes, more of those yummy meatballs. It was a night that things kept popping up and it got later and later and this was a quick and easy dinner.
And on Tuesday the 19th I made a meatloaf and served it with mashed potatoes and carrots, green beans and wax beans.
See anything here that inspires you? I sure hope so.
In the meantime, how did it get to be the end of January? New Year's Day seems so long ago, and yet it seems as though there should be at least one more week of January.
I hope you have a great Sunday and I will do my best to not let another week pass before I stop in to see you all again. I really do appreciate each and every one of you. I feel as if I know so many of you and count you all as my friends.
