What a day!!!
I've been running around getting groceries, doing errands and everything else that comes with a payday. It's one of the days I do enjoy getting out of the house and being on the go, but when I finally sit down I'm exhausted.
I look around and realize I have yet to do the breakfast dishes, laundry, sweep and mop and make the beds. Everything is falling behind and I need to get a move on it. Unfortunately I have a bit of a cold and my allergies are kicking my behind today, I used the Nasonex but it gives me horrible headaches, so it's pretty much a no win situation. Thing about me is, I don't give up and I don't back down, so I'll plow through the house work until I'm satisfied with it, headache or not.
Thank you to all the ladies who participated in the Slow Cooking Thursday, I've got a wonderful collection of recipes already and can't wait to try them all. I've tried a few and have yet to be disappointed in any, so good job ladies, keep them coming.
You know how it is the day before you get groceries, it always seems like you've run out of everything??? That's how I felt last night but I was still able to whip together a great meal, actually now that I think about it, I enjoy cooking when I'm having to use bare essentials or whatever is left in the freezer.
One of those quick and delicious meals that I make when in a bind, is also one that the family most enjoy.....I think it's the smoked sausage that they like the most. *wink wink*
I try to always keep some smoked sausage (kielbasa or polska) around. Just slice it up, in a skillet add some olive oil, a little bit of chopped onion (optional), cubed potatoes (or leftover hashbrowns) and you can even throw in some peas or other veggies if you want. Salt and pepper and that's it, you're done, it's really good and fast and surprisingly filling.
To go with it, I made a Dump Cake, again something fast and easy to make. I guess I wasn't in the mood for sitting in the kitchen fixing an elaborate dinner LOL
Oh and I almost forgot, I also had some Homemade Chicken Soup ready too. We ate, we filled our tummies and we felt wonderful.
The kids are doing much better, there seems to be some sort of weird cold going around, it usually lasts only a day or two and then it's like it never happened. Unless you're me, of course, then it hangs around as long as it possibly can just because. I'm just glad it's the weekend though, I could use some sleeping in.
On monday morning I'm getting my cysts removed from my left wrist and actually looking forward to it, is that not the silliest thing you've ever heard??? I guess because they've getting to the point where they're bothering me and I'm finding it hard to do much with this hand, at least it's the left hand and not the right. So anyway, that's what is coming up next week.
Tonight I plan on relaxing and catching up on the blogs and then some reading, I'm truly enjoying the Julia Quinn's Bridgerton Series.
I have no clue what I'm fixing for dinner tonight, the day I get groceries is usually left open because we tend to grab something on the go or go out as a family later for a meal. It's one of those things we enjoy doing and since it's only on payday, it's almost like a ritual LOL
So I'm heading out, I'm keeping this one short, my head is pounding and my throat is hurting. I hope you all have a wonderful friday. I leave you with this video that I found on GodTube, it was so powerful for me to watch, I truly hope you all enjoy it too.
