Rob had given his driver the wrong phone when he had left to come home last night. These things happen. Off to Southampton we had to go to make the "switch" of phones. No matter as we met at the Saugeen Gas Bar to fill up both Taxis anyhow.
My Aunt Gerry and Uncle Reg are up visiting my Aunt Gladys (sister) and Uncle Basil this weekend and my Aunt Shirley was taking them for lunch at the Walkerhouse in Southampton. Since we were there I wanted to wait to "hook up" with them around 1 pm so I could say "hello", as I hadn't seen them since last Summer. Rob had seen them all last night as he had been over there phlishing some Carrot Cake from Auntie Gladys. We had a bit a time to kill.
Finally we drove back up to the Walkerhouse to see Uncle Reg's van parked there.
By the time we arrived back home it was 3 pm. I still had a whole chicken needing something done with it. Since today hydro is at its lowest rate, I thought I best be putting it in a pot to simmer as I am right out of Chicken Stock, having used it all up on the Big Batch Chicken Soup yesterday.
I still have two packages of Chicken Thighs that I will make up into a Slow Cooker Honey Garlic recipe ... stay tuned tomorrow. I noticed a member on Cindy's Recipe Exchange made the "new to us" recipe; by the look of her photos it looks like it will be a "keeper".
I feel I haven't gotten anything accomplished other then cooking the last two days. Not true, as I did do a load of dark clothes, so this was something.
Okay Dinner is finally over with, after waking poor Rob up from a much needed snooze.
Tomorrow is Family Day, and my Crabby Cabbie Rob will not be working. Do you have any exciting plans for Family Day? I am thinking the weather should be good, fingers crossed, but then again what would this matter to me, I will be still cooking ... Chicken Thighs and a Peameal Bacon Roast to go.
*Sigh* I must have been really wicked in my past life to be challenged so hard in this one ... *wink*wink*.
A warm welcome going out to my newest follower, Sherry of Pondered Primed Perfection. Thank you, Sherry, for joining me here on my daily journey with its sometimes often ramblings and the odd opinion.
Psst ... an new "Checkerboard Aussie" testimonial and photos came to me today, take a "peak" HERE.
I am tired, what else is new, so any errors whatsoever I am not too worried at this very moment. I am off to enjoy a cup of coffee and relax a bit, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard."
