I'm checking in... nothing new at my house.

I did try a new recipe for pork chops tonight. It's made with apple juice, cr of mush soup, spicy brown mustard and honey. Oh, was it yummy. But next time, I will double up on the ingredients so that we have enough for lots of gravy.

Sue, the recipe sounds FABULOUS, and I hope you will share it.

Holly, I am pretty sure I would not correct her unless it was something really outta line/context that maybe she didn't realize she said. You know...like a blooper. Glad your ride has new wheels! Yeah!

I went out for dessert with Roxie tonight. Just what I needed - a nice piece of French Silk Pie. So yummy!

I would let it go. Each of us may have grown up saying something different or unusual as a blessing. But... at least a blessing was said.

Autumn Pork Chops
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 pork chops, 1/2 inch thick
1 (10.75 ounce) can Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)
1/2 cup apple juice or water
2 tablespoons spicy-brown mustard
1 tablespoon honey
Generous dash ground black pepper
Hot cooked medium egg noodles
Heat oil in skillet. Cook chops 10 minutes or until browned. Add soup, apple juice, mustard, honey and black pepper. Heat to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat 5 minutes or until chops are done. Serve with noodles.

Larry liked it too, but wishes there was more of the "gravy". I didn't have any egg noodles, so we ate it with baked potatoes.

French Silk Pie... that's one kind of pie that I don't care for. The other is Key Lime Pie. Other than those two, I can eat almost any kind of pie.

LOL,

the original recipe called for Cr of Celery which is a soup that I don't care for. So I changed it to Cr of Mush. I bet Cr of Chix would work too.

Good morning all! It's a beautiful chilly day here. I have to get some forms faxed, call for a hair appointment, and a ton of other "errand calls". Katie is coming home for the weekend. It will be nice to see her!

Thanks Sue. I was thinking cream of celery actually.

Karen, good to see you up and around! So happy Katie will be home for the weekend. I know how much you enjoy that time with her.

Holly, you have been so busy lately! Make sure to take a lil bit of time for yourself!

The sun is out, and the wind has died down! YEAH!!!

oh, by the way, the recipe suggested Apple Crisp for dessert.

I found a microwave recipe for apple crisp that I want to try. Grandson Cody loves apple crisp and if this recipe tastes like oven baked, I will be giving it to him. He can make it in the microwave in 12 minutes.

My older sister uses cr of celery and cr of chicken for hers. I do the mushroom.
Teresa also has Wild rice Dish she uses Celery and Chicken soup in with hamburger. OMG GOOD!

I would not correct anyone saying Grace.. mostly becuase I would not even know if it was wrong or different

Here's the recipe my coworker suggests for yougirls

Apple Pie Filling in a 9x13
Brown your Pork Chops a bit and place them on top of the Apple
then cover with your stuffing and bake

She says it is the absolute best



I am at work with Anna today, just us, so far no customers

Default the reason!

well, it was me that one of the ladies corrected, in a tone as if i were a 2 yr old! all because i said "bless this meal" instead of Thank You for this food.........seriously????

everyone sat there blinking at her, we were all so shocked. never in my life have i ever seen anyone do that! and i admit i was a bit offended.

everyone says Grace differently but there is no wrong way!

You are correct. There is no "correct" way of thanking God. I would have been offended also.

I went to a Lutheran grade school (kindergarten - 8th grade). One of the many prayers we were taught...

Bless this food,and these, Thy gifts which we have received from Your bountiful goodness, Amen. In fact, Pastor said this prayer at lunch the day we placed my Dad's ashes to rest.

You did nothing wrong Holly.

Such a busy day today. The auditor was there yet again, and I tell you what. He is an energy zapper. He truly sucks the energy right outta you. I had such a headache. I had to come home and take some migraine meds and rest before we went out to dinner. It was really quite a day. Uck!

Anyways. I plan to get inky for a while tonight. The Admirals are playing a very late game, so I will have a late night for sure tonight and tomorrow night actually!

I must have slept funny last night. I have a kink in my shoulder that I can't seem to work out. Kinda frustrating!

She had dinner with us tonight. She really is here to visit her home town girlfriends and do a "zombie 5k run". She is staying at her girlfriend's house overnight tonight and possibly tomorrow night. I don't think we will see her again till Sunday when it is time for her to leave to go back to college. That's okay, it was great to see her tonight!

Good Morning Ladies--hope your Saturday morning is starting out bright and chipper! We are going to do some things outside this morning--plant tulips, dig up canna bulbs, cut branches and load them into the trailer, etc. They started the garage/greenhouse project yesterday by doing the excavating, and starting the plumbing. They are planning to pour the slab on Tuesday.

This afternoon we are going to the play Lombardi--it is in downtown Milwaukee and has gotten pretty good reviews. Hope to be home in time to watch the Badgers play at 7:00

Barb, my friend Joe said Lombardi was really good. I hope you enjoyed it!

I had a really busy day, but still didn't accomplish all I wanted to. I was out and about running errands when my brother asked me to come over for supper tonight and to bake cupcakes with the boys. Unfortunately Tom and I had dinner plans, as my free meal coupon for TGI Fridays expired today. So, I ended up going over there for the afternoon anyways. I love my nephews dearly, and it was so fun! Rylee didn't want me to leave, and Owen (3) was yelling...I LOVE YOU TOO AUNTIE LAURIE as I backed down the driveway. How can you not LOVE that!?!?

Well, I just typed a long post and somehow lost it! So here it is in a nutshell;
Annie and I went to a yarn shop yesterday and it was wonderful! I signed up for some knitting classes for the next two weeks. The yarns were all so beautiful. Wow!
Katie came home last night from her weekend with her friends at midnight. She threw all her clothes into the wash and then the dryer wouldn't start. I got up, got Jim up (he was real happy to be woken at 1am-not!) but he couldn't fix it. So Katie had only wet clothes and was leaving to go back to college at 9am this morning. I couldn't go back to sleep...fell back asleep at around 4am...got up at 7 to drive to the laundromat and put at least her jeans, and a sweatshirt into a dryer so she wouldn't be in wet clothes for the drive back. I was happy that I had some knitting to do. One things about card making...you can't take it with you! So Katie and Jim left only 15 minutes late, and she will be warm and comfortable for the drive.
I'm looking forward to physical therapy starting this week. I hope it helps me be able to sit up and start making some cards!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

thank you!

I never know what to do with the condensed milk. I buy it by accident for pumpkin pie. That needs evaporated milk.

The cows are HUGE! actually they are steers (no longer bulls) the leaped that fence like is was a speed bump in a parking lot! Was a bit funny! And man can they run!!

I said that same thing.. they know where they were headed that's why they jumped the fence.

if they are found (and caught) on that property they become their property, the sheriff has notified everyone around whose they are and where to call if found.
They had gone onto the Shooting Range.. I thought that was kinda funny! It sure would have made things easier! LOL

So far as of last night, no news!

Good morning. I am cleaning like a crazy woman this morning, but the house will look nice when done. Then I need to shower and get a load of laundry going. Lasagna is ready to go in the oven for supper.

My friend Christine is coming over for a few hours to stamp with me. I have been working on finding my craft table. It was in need of some serious cleaning, and her visit was just the motivation I needed. I have a small room for us to work in, but I think we will be fine.

TTYL!

Well yesterday Jay and his famiy were out cutting wood and their dog came over to visit. Not a welcome visit!
He terrorized my whole household!
Took a goose, Clint went after him with the gun. Jay's gf was screaming don't shoot my dog. It attacked Zeus and the Guinea Hen before taking a goose. Clint finally caught up to him, and Karla stepped in his way. I'd shot her!
Ooh I am so mad I can spit nails!
Got Tony home, she is okay, a few missing feathers and a hole on her head by her eye. The Guinea is ok, Zeus seems alright today.

Now this morning, one of my bunnies got out, and Joker and Missy were scaring the stuffing out of it. No one hurt it, but it kept screaming like they were killing it.
I cleaned him all up, got him dried off, he's fine. Missy thought he was a cool toy! She plays so hard with the kitties, she probably thought this was just another kitty. Joker plays too hard that's probably why he was screaming. No bites, so I know it was all play.
Uff da! No stress here! LOL

I am trying to upload a card I made last night, but every time I start something chaotic happens! LOL

Making Chili for Supper.. what's for dinner at your house?
