I have been waiting all week so that I could post the day after I won the power ball…….unfortunately things did not pan out quite the way I had them pictured. This means that I have to spend the rest of today and tomorrow doing all the laundry and housework that I saved up all week for the maid that I was planning on hiring this afternoon. Dang it!
The day after Thanksgiving we went on a Christmas Tree hunt. There was no snow in the mountain which on the one hand makes me worry even more about the drought but on the other hand no one got stuck this year and it was the quickest, easiest tree hunt that I have ever been on.
Here are a few other trees and their happy people.
and after lights….
And then it was time to back up and head back to Minnesota. This is how Anne felt about leaving……
And this is their silly side…..
And now you may recall that a couple of weeks ago I had this great idea about posting a Meatful recipe on Mondays and then the first Meatful Monday recipe came on a Wednesday and now the second Meatful Monday recipe is coming on a Thursday.
Quick Side Note: I believe a sign of true friendship is when you don’t point out that someone is missing their self imposed deadlines and you just pretend that Wednesday is Monday or Thursday is Monday and you also don’t point out that the laundry is piled up and the vacuum hasn’t been used recently or point out that they have a much better chance of dying from a bee sting or being born with six fingers than winning the power ball.
Also, eventually the Meatful Monday recipe will happen on a Monday and isn’t it more fun to try to guess when that might happen? It adds an extra element of excitement, don’t you think?
And now for the Thursday edition of the Meatful Mondays recipe.
This is another Taste of Home Recipe, click on the link above for the recipe. It’s a really easy slow cooker recipe. And we did eat it on Monday.
