Fixed sausage, gravy, biscuits and eggs this morning for a late breakfast. We definitely will not be eating lunch!! I'll probably just fix an early supper. Anyway, I'm ready and energized for housework. The bed sheets have been yanked off the bed and the laundry has been sorted and I'm off and running. Be back soon!!
Laundry is all finished, beds are made but I got sidetracked and didn't get seeds for the garden planted. That's really okay though. There's plenty of time. I was downstairs most of the day straightening and cleaning up the basement. It was a day of little things, like running vinegar through the coffeepot to clean it, going through my supply of emergency foods and seeing what we might need to go ahead and use-and listing what I needed to restock. Not important things, but all the same, stuff that needed to be accomplished.
I found a brownie mix hidden back in the frig and decided to bake brownies. One of my daughters-in-law is a big couponer and she had sent me some brownies and cake mixes awhile back that she had picked up for a little of nothing. She knows her father-in-law has a sweet tooth!! I secretly stashed them back and when I know he's in need and I don't feel like messing with too much baking, I'll get one out and bake it up. It looks like I'm down to 3 boxes of cake mixes so sometime here shortly I'm going to have to make up a big batch of cake and brownie mixes to store back for future use. They're really easy to do and handy as a hind pocket. I fill quart jars with the cake, brownie and cookie mixes and put them in my basement frig. That way all I have to do is add the oil, eggs, water and whatever, whenever I need to bake something up with little-to-no trouble.
Tonight we're having baked chicken, creamed corn and Tomatoes & Macaroni. Then I will take the leftover chicken and will mix that with the Tomatoes & Mac and we will eat it as a salad on another day. Yum!! What? You think it doesn't sound good? Oh, you don't know what you're missing!!
