Much like you, Aunt Bea. Simple meals like mushroom soup, bean soups and grilled cheese. Today will be our last big meal, we are going to the city and eating at a fantastic Mexican Restaurant.

I know what I'm doing right now.....reclaiming my work surfaces in the kitchen. The island is a 'catch all' and most times I only have half the 3' X 6' surface area to work on......

Re-organizing the cabinets is also underway.......

Shop Til You Drop Baby!

Up wayyy too early.This isn't normal.Noon has become my new normal.

Going shopping to spoil my sister rotten.

Hope she likes what I've picked out.All I have to do is pick it all up,have it wrapped and sent off.

She's having difficulties adjusting to life without Mom.So I think a little pampering is in order, things that are just for her and her alone is a nice way of showing her how to get the ball rolling.

@Addie,
Please don't give me ANY advice or comments on how YOU would handle things.Thank you in advance!

Thinking about getting up to tidy up the house. Work has been so crazy, I've been working long hours that the house looks more "lived in" than I would like. Since mom is coming tuesday and I'll have a house full of guests, there is no better time than the present!

Condolences again on the loss of your dear mother, Munky. While you're pampering your sweet sister, don't forget to do something nice for yourself as well.

What are you doing?

The snow knocked out our Directv satellite dish. DH wanted to watch "the game", but neither one of us do much with ladders anymore, and the dish is on the roof. I convinced him to use the apple picker pole which I wrapped in a rag, to knock the snow off. It worked!

Just finished cutting up 4 pounds of boneless chuck for chili. I'll probably cook it tomorrow for dinner. Now I'm finishing up the last of the pulled from the freezer in a sandwich for lunch.

DH and I are in a cooking marathon for his dad. I'm sitting down for a few minutes of rest while he makes meat and veggie sauce for stuffed bell peppers.

Here area a few other meals we've made for him.
