The only plans I had for Saturday were to sew! That’s all I wanted to do . . sew! Nothing was more important to me than sewing on Saturday. The entire week had been spent at the longarm and I was about to die to sit down at the sewing machine.
Chad has a friend who plays in a band. Chad always has friends who play in bands and I know Chad would love to do that one day. Friday night Chad went with Drew to one of their performances a county or two south of here. I had been asleep for a while when Chad got in but he always calls me on the cell phone to tell me he’s home. He wanted to talk! He wanted to tell me all about Drew’s band, and the band that played before them, and this and that and more of this and more of that! How does a mom say no to a 20 year old who’s willing to talk? At 2 a.m. I said Chad, I’m going to wake you up when I get up if you don’t stop talking! 🙂 Oh, not a problem. He had to be at work at 8 a.m. Good grief, child . .
Got up at 6 a.m. It’s now 1:30 p.m. and I’ve made one block.
Not very impressive, right? Hey .. the day isn’t over.
As Chad was leaving, he told me we were out of ham. Chad doesn’t like the brand the grocery store has so that meant a trip to Wal-Mart on a Saturday which is definitely against everything I stand for! If I can get there early, it’s not too bad so I rushed off to Wal-Mart. I love finding bargains!
Last week when I was at Wal-Mart, they had Macaroni Grill pasta mixes for .50 and soft taco kits for .50. I’d seen those Macaroni Grill mixes but they were over $3.50 and I wouldn’t buy them. The taco kits have the flour tortillas, a taco seasoning packet and salsa . . can’t beat that for .50.
But today, they had yeast marked down to $2. This size jar is anywhere from $5 – $6 around here so I was thrilled to find it for $2. (Doesn’t take much to excite me!) Anyway, I bought 8 jars of yeast. The expiration date is sometime in 2010 and you can bet it will be used well before then.
Then I came home and made what you see below. In the loaf pan is the standard whole wheat bread using hard white wheat. In the blue bowl is pita bread. In the white cup is No Knead Bread. We love that with spaghetti and meatballs which is what we’re having tonight. That’s usually what we have on Sunday but we’re having it tonight instead.
Oh, what I forgot to mention in the picture above. In the dish is peach cobbler! YUMMMM!
And here it is with a big scoop (or two) of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream.
Life is good . . despite having only made one block today!
