Hey everyone. Hope everyone has been well. I have been around visiting you, but haven't left many comments. Things are going okay here, but not perfect. Who am I kidding? When were they ever perfect? Drama Queen is being punished, by us and by those she wronged. Hopefully this will be a valuable lesson for her. Thanks to everyone who sent emails with their care and concern; it did really help me.
I'm still working on the pantry challenge. I did fall off the wagon two weeks ago when all hell broke loose here. When I'm stressed, I do two things: eat and shop. I had to get out of the house after the incident and I shopped for some craft items and then I was lured into the big, bad grocery store. I broke down and bought the bologna I had been craving, and some other lunch meat and some fancy cheese. Well, not fancy, but more expensive than I usually buy and need to shred it myself. This is how I wallow.
I pulled some ground beef out of the freezer and grabbed a jar of spaghetti sauce, some onion, garlic, smoked paprika and a southwest blend of spices and stirred it all up in a pan. I boiled some noodles-two kinds since I had about a palm full of both types but not enough of one to make the whole dish. Just part of the challenge.
Dude said it tasted like Hamburger Helper. Guess he wasn't impressed. Considering I have been sick again and rolled off the couch at 6 and had this on the table at 7, he shouldn't complain!
Here is one of the treasures that came with the Christmas gifts my Mom got me from the lady that passed away in her complex. In the Spritz maker box were a lot of recipes and receipts. One of my favorites were these four inserts from Spry shortening cans.
I used some of my scrapbooking tools and paper to mount the circles on complimentary colored card stock.
I picked this floating frame up at Michael's with a discount coupon and sandwiched the lids between the plastic sheets. I need to find my level so I can get it hung up in the kitchen.
