What to watch...the Olympics, The Beatles, or Downton Abbey? What's a girl to do? This is how we handled it....I recorded Downton....we went back and forth on the other two programs.....recording the Olympics, so we wouldn't miss an event we wanted to see.This morning...I got up early and watched the recorded Downton Abbey. Our remote got a workout yesterday. Do you remember when you had to get up and change the channel? That was a workout for us in those days...today we are spoiled and many over weight, from no exercise. Some only exercise their fingers with the remote. Back to last night..... All were good programs....what with the US skating team and the 50 yr reunion of the Beatles and "oh my" the goings on at Downton. So, blurry eyed this morning... as I sit here writing my post, I'm wondering what the day will bring. No plans except Joe's appointment at therapy.
Good golly Miss Molly...when is it going to warm up just a little? The view out the window is so deceiving...the sun is shining, the snow is sparkling, cars whizzing by on clear roads.....then I look at the thermometer and it reads -14. No walkers in sight this morning. Enough weather for today. Aren't you sick of hearing my daily weather report?
We had one of Joe's favorite meals yesterday....hamburger patties shaped like footballs... and made with a meatloaf like recipe. They are a little thicker than regular hamburgers. I made four "footballs" and browned them in a skillet. Then I added to the pan...about 11/2 cups of water mixed with 1/2 pkg of Lipton onion soup mix. I covered the pan and let the meat slow cook until done I used a meat thermometer to test. When they were done, I took them out of the pan and thickened the gravy. Sometimes I add mushrooms to this mixture. Meanwhile, I made some mashed potatoes and we had sweet corn and a salad. We ate two...so there are leftovers for another meal later this week.Joe always smiles when there is food left...he knows that I like to cook for a couple of days at one time.He tells me it's me trying to get out of cooking.
I'm sitting here listening to Joe talking to customer service on the phone. I've never seen anything like it....he makes a regular conversation with customer service...finding out where the person is, how's the weather there, they may talk about his surgery or other things going on....and usually ends up with free shipping. I think to myself...here he is talking to someone he doesn't even know....and on the other hand, here I am posting about my day with all of you, whom I've never met.
Well, gotta go and make breakfast...maybe I'll come back later and post my recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies...
Have a nice day....Balisha
