Good Morning Everyone! I have a Dr.'s appointment this morning and we have a couple of errands to run for Benjamin who heads off tomorrow to Taipei. I feel nauseous. Am making Benj his favourite fresh tomato sauce recipe over spaghettini for dinner tonight and I am going to make Corinne's Panko Crusted Pork Chops for Jim and I. Not sure of sides yet. Probably a baked potato. It's just gorgeous outside. Lots and lots of white fluffy snow. -4F. Glad to hear Fred is feeling better Tina. That's a good picture of him in your Avatar. Have a great day everybody!
Good Morning Janet! Bless your heart. I hope you have an enjoyable day with Benj! (((((((((BIG HUGS)))))))))))) Girlfriend! We love those pork chops. I have been thinking about having them soon, myself.
Janet, Enjoy your pork chops tonight and good luck at the doctors and yes have a fantastic day with Ben!!! Trembling and worrying with you as well. ((((( SENDING BIG HUGS TO YOU))))))
Lori, Spaghetti is just the perfect meal in my mind for today.
I am not certain yet what we are having for dinner and you both have me swaying between pork chops and spaghetti now!!! It is a sunny clear day and with all the snow it looks very beautiful outside. I am not up to very much today just dusting and cleaning and putting away the last of the Christmas decorations and stuff.
Janet, <<<HUGS>>> Have a wonderful day with Benjamin dear..your dinner sounds wonderful as usual..making pork chops for Rick as well! I'll have a chicken breast baked in the oven with garlic & herbs, potatoes (maybe baked, I don't know yet) & sauteed spinach with garlic:)
Lori, Yum on your spaghetti! I need to try your version someday soon:)
LOL Joce on swaying between spaghetti & pork chops! Every one else's dinners always sound so good, don't they!
I'll be busy again today with bookkeeping, bank run, I need to total our mileage for last year as well. That shouldn't take too long though:) So I sure hope I get a chance to watch Downton without any interuptions!!! Rick is busy most of the day..need to find a kitty-sitter..LOL Those rascals start acting up when I watch Downton for some reason!
Make it a glorious day, hope everyone is well & HAPPY!
Okay....I've made it 'til 12:30 so far and I'm not in full blubber mode yet. :) Doctor's appointment went well. I had this weird spot on my arm that I was a little nervous was skin cancer, but....it's an age spot. :) I can handle that! :) We popped into the bank and deposited a bit more money into Benjamin's account and got him a new pr. of ear phones as the ones we got him for his birthday were defective. Yum on your spaghetti leftovers Lori. And ya....how's Bryan feeling today? :) Have a good day straightening things up Joce. Funny that the cats act up when Downton is on Marie. And LOL @ the Kale, Bacon recipe. :) Mmmmm...your supper sounds good Tina. LOVE Bean soup. Sorry to hear Liv is sick. Argh. Thanks everyone for the good wishes and hugs. I truly appreciate it.
Hi Tina! Yes, I'm good at finding kale recipes:) I do believe Janet has me topped though...cause she hates kale so much... as you do! LOL
Janet, thinking ou you today, I can't imagine how hard this must be for you & Jim..Benj is doing what makes him happy! He will be awesome!
BTW, I have some poblanos and leftover queso cheese from the chili..could I make these like Laurie's laughing cow pepper recipe? Or are they too large of a pepper..just wondering the best, easiest to make stuffed peppers with what I have on hand...thanks"_
Hey all Hugs Janet So yesterday I made pot roast for dinner and then angel food cake with pineapple for dessert. I'm in bed falling asleep last night and I realized I forgot to serve the cake! Tonight's dinner mini meatloaf cupcakes from Emilybites.com with a broccoli cheese side from green giant and maybe mashed.
I'm not a big stuffed pepper fan either Marie. LOL! :) But I'd think you could do a similar recipe to Laurie's Laughing cow pepper recipe. Couldn't you just mix up some rice with the cheese and some spices, cumin, chili, etc. and even a bit of your favourite kale or whatever, onions and bake that all up? A bit of tomato sauce to make it all soft enough? That's pretty funny you forgot to serve the angel food cake Laurie. Equally surprising that on one else noticed you hadn't either! :) Again, everyone, I appreciate the thoughts. I know I'm not going to get much sleep tonight. We have to leave the house by about 6:30 tomorrow morning. I think I'm seriously going to bring a box of kleenex with me in the car. :) Once we get him through security Jim and I will go for breakfast and then Jim heads back to work. I'm meeting up with my girlfriend for lunch and I'd like to go find somewhere to get my hair cut. The hair dresser we've had forever retired. Very sad.
Sounds like a good way to keep yourself busy tomorrow, Janet! Good luck with finding a new hairdresser. I would seriously need some kleenex, too! :) Bryan seems to be fine today, thanks!
Marie, here is a recipe Donna has for Cheesy Fiesta Poblanos I'm not sure about just using cheese and the peppers...BUT...if you had enhough cheese I don't see why not! And you could sub the queso for what she uses. Donna uses poblanos alot...here's another one Poblanos With Spicy Meat Sauce (you could use ground turkey) Good luck! I'm sure you will come up with something!!
Laurie, you sound like me, forgetting to serve the cake! :)
Hi Joce! Hi Tina!!
I spoke to a lady today that has been in the staffing industry for 20+ years. She advertised that she is starting her own staffing co and I sent her my resume. Maybe since she is just starting out she will be highly motivated to find a position for me! lol I should be a top priority. :) She has contacts from her years in staffing, so, we will see. Won't hurt to try.
Thanks so much for the stuffed pepper tips Lori & Janet! I would love to make chile rellenos, but they are quite time comsuming to make..homemade sauce and all:) Lori, good luck on getting a job at the new staffing co!! How exciting:)
Hi Kimmer. Thanks. :) You have it way harder with Michael's forays. Don't know how you do it. You're a strong lady. :) Mmmmm......on your chicken and alfredo noodles. Sleep sweet. Am making Benjamin's favourite appetizer. Spinach balls with Hot Pepper Jelly. Will pop a bottle of bubbly in just a bit. Dinner in front of the TV with our favourite Monday night line up. A fire. The regular every day things are what is most important. Always. Will close for today and you won't hear from me tomorrow morning. What a tough thing it is....letting go. Heavy heart. But I'm very proud. Night all.
Sounds like you have a wonderful evening planned Janet. And yes, letting go is hard, no matter what the circumstances. But remember...........all hearts always come home.........even if they can't phyically.................
