Since I had made an attempt at starting my Spring Cleaning last week, before I got sick, I really need to catch up on the regular stuff that I was not feeling well enough to do while I was sick. You know that dusty, vacuum, clean the bathroom stuff, then hopefully have the energy to restart the Springy Cleanny stuff. Key Word: Energy.
I had a "chuckle" yesterday when my sister, Jeanne, had shared a link from The Old Farmer's Almanac, "Natural Remedies: Insomnia and Trouble Sleeping":
Up until a couple of weeks ago I was eating two large oranges every night before bedtime, and there were nights Mr. Insomnia still insisted on our date. Maybe I should cook a Turkey every week to have that on hand? Ummmm, and then I am sure there are days when Rob would truly have no problem obliging with a "rubber mallet", lol.
I really, really enjoyed the Green Bean Casserole my Aunt made to go along with Sunday's supper. I have to admit it has been a favorite of mine for quite some time, but I believe I had mentioned Rob wasn't fussy on it (but says he will eat it, as I seen this Sunday evening), so I have decided I am going to start to incorporate it back into my meal planning. There is a couple versions of the recipe, being the one I have gotten off the French's French Fried Onions (Original) (maybe it is the very first original, who knows):
I think I would prefer the recipe my Aunt made Sunday, and the recipe I have, which is again a little bit different:
2 - 14 oz cans of green beans, drained
1/2 of a 175 g French Fried Onions (Durkee or French's Brand)
1 - 10 oz can of sliced mushrooms, drained well
1 - 10 oz can cream of mushroom soup
3 tblsp. heaping of Almond Slivers
1/2 - 1 cup Old Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Alternate layers of beans & onions. Mix soup, mushrooms & almonds in separate bowl, then pour over beans. Top with cheese.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.
I will being making this in the very near future, so watch out Rob !!!
I just love vegetables........
I am thinking if I get a few things caught up today, I might attempt a new recipe which appealed to me in the new Kraft's What's Cooking Spring Magazine (I love this magazine) with a variation of my own:
Lemon pie is one of Rob's most favorites, so I think he will be a wonderful candidate as Guinea Pig, once again, for these lemon squares.
I just received an email recently from my cousin, Paula, with the pictures Brad had taken of the puppies when they dropped in this past Sunday. I really appreciated receiving the different poses:
Little bums to heads.....very content & full looking I think.
Here I am, once again, with only one coffee in me and an unmade bed. I am really starting to believe life is too short to be worrying about an unmade bed. And do people really come to visit you to see if there are 3 layers of dust on your furniture (in my case this week I am sure there is 5 layers)? If they do, it must be a very sad "friendship" or an "acquaintance that needs to be re-evaluated, as a true "friendship" only sees the person they care in front of them, or so I believe this is the way it should be.
Well Wiarton Airport by the looks of it out there this morning I only seen heavy frost & no snow flakes so bring on the rest of the day:
Sunshine, my most favorite kind of weather day!
Off to and running to chase after all those dust bunnies that have made themselves so comfortable in my home......Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
