Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - I wanted to thank everyone for their kind Birthday wishes - I opened up the Blog and comments this morning and was so moved by them all - thank you, thank you!!! It was just raining a bit too much so we stayed in last night and order Chinese Take out for dinner from Alice's - we really enjoy this place and they are super quick with getting an order together. You can click HERE to go to their website. There was enough leftovers so that we got lunch out of it for today!! Woo - Hoo I love it when a dinner can do double duty!!
Over the weekend we did run some errands and one of them was to Trader Joe's .....
..... and they had a gigantic display of canned pumpkin - there had to be 200 + cans of the stuff, so I picked up a couple of cans. If you live near a TJ's check them out as I think this stuff will go pretty fast. The supermarkets in the city are still bare shelved when it comes to canned pumpkin. I also picked up a Dark chocolate bar with caramel and black sea salt - how tasty!! And, we stopped at a Walgreen's and what else would I be getting but some candy corn - love this stuff!!
We often go out either Saturday or Sunday or both nights for dinner - but not feeling like going out we made a nice little dinner -
.... I made some biscuits and mashed "taters and Rico fried some chicken and made some almond string beans. I made enough biscuits that the lasted for a few meals - and we had enough chicken for lunch the next day.
Also in the kitchen......I found a few years ago on the Internet a recipe I have wanted to try and this past weekend I whipped up some.....
..... Taco Won-tons - they turned out really tasty and the recipe made enough that I froze a bunch of them to have later. Rico made some Spanish rice et voila, dinner!!
I also baked up this....
.... cranberry coffee cake - I made this before, but might not have posted the recipe. I'll get the recipe for everything up on Blacksheep Bakes in the morning - everything is pretty easy to make!! And, I found them all just surfing around and from others sharing!!! I love the Internet!!!!!
I will post a birthday snap tomorrow as I left my camera at home this morning
- something I just never do!!
There you go sports fans.
Thanks again for you kindnesses and for stopping by.
Do come again!!!
