Oldest Son brought me between 13 and 14 pounds of boneless chuck roast. I lost maybe half a pound in fat trimmings. I cut the meat into pieces large enough to fill pint jars and wound up with 13 pints of beef roast for the shelves. I would like to have canned more, but there are other places my money needs to go, so I will wait until the beef goes on sale again.
The last dance competition of the season for my granddaughters is held this weekend. Youngest Son called me to let me know the website I can use to watch the girls in real time. There I found a list of all the dance numbers for the weekend, and I get to watch them dance 9 times! Each granddaughter has a solo and I watched Boston do her tap solo Thursday evening. She did a really good job. I don't know how she does it. If my feet were flying that fast I would be tripping over them. Maddie May has a duet late this afternoon and the rest are spread out over Saturday and Sunday. I have gotten so I can pick them out of a group so it is even more fun for me.
The bananas I bought are finally ripe enough for banana bread, so I will make a couple of loaves later today. I am guessing that after Oldest Son reads this, he will be knocking on my door, looking for some banana bread to take in his lunch. Fine with me. Half the fun of baking it is the sharing of it.
And that is pretty much as exciting as my life gets this week. In between watching the girls dance, I think I will do some sewing. I have another quilt top all cut out and ready to put together. And maybe a nap. Yep, definitely a nap. :)
