It has been a productive last couple of days. Sunday George worked, so I took advantage of it and spent most of the day in the kitchen. Strawberries were at a great price of $14 a flat so had to get a flat of those sweet and juicy jewels. Sliced a half flat and put those up in the freezer the other half flat were sliced and went so very well with a pound cake made from a new recipe. It was fantastic!
I have been looking for a new pound cake recipe for a long time and I have found it. Never have I made one in a tube pan but the recipe calls for it, so that is what I did. I also made two batches of Chex mix and put them into Food Saver bags. So much cheaper to make than to buy this stuff and everyone loves it. Then got the biscuits for the week made and put into the freezer, laundry done and put a pot roast in the crock pot for dinner. The better part of my day was spent in the kitchen, but got things done. And enjoyed doing it all without the interruptions, young son was at the skate part and well George was working.
Yesterday George was off and we seemed to have a pretty productive day. We were supposed to have thunderstorms yesterday and it turned out to be a nice day. Needless to say that we were busy trying to get things done outside "before" the storms arrived. After a while we realized that it was going to be nice and we didn't have to act crazy trying to get things done. He and young son worked on getting the new cameras up while I worked on getting the dead bamboo out. The bamboo seems to go through bouts of parts of it die off and then it looks really bad so I am trying to get the dead stuff out of there. It takes time to do this. It is very thick and it has to be done one stalk at a time, or at least that's the way I do it. It just pulls out so you really don't have to cut it.
We bought some steaks this week, we haven't had steaks in a very long time. But George does a killer steak on the BBQ! They were so good, I ate all of mine and I never eat that much meat.
Wow they look huge in this picture. Even got some of the odds and ends of laundry done with a terrific breeze. Not sure what we will be doing today with the thunderstorms but maybe we can watch "Happy Feet Two" and just hang out, that is if we keep the power on. If it clears up I will work on cleaning house and George will be doing whatever it is that he does out there. Still haven't finished up the place mats that are so close to being finished. But maybe today will be the day.
~Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today!~ Brightest Blessing!
