It has been a week and still no window guys. Guess they are in hiding. My landlord hasn't been able to get them to come back here to finish the job. I sure hope he didn't pay them in advance.
I am loving the fact that Duane is back working at the restaurant where one of the perks is a meal each day he works. The other evening he shared a meal of Chicken Alfredo. It was delicious. The man knows how to cook. This from someone who, as a teenager, thought peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches were the height of gourmet cooking. (Shudder.)
So what does a quilter do when she can't get to her sewing machine? She cuts out more quilt pieces, of course. Spent some time yesterday cutting some of the scraps left over from other projects into squares for a scrap quilt. Or maybe two quilts. I have lots of scraps.
Over the weekend I dehydrated 10 lbs. of potatoes and 5 lbs. of onions. I decided to make my own packaged scalloped potato mix instead of ordering those boxed scalloped potatoes from the store. I just put 3 cups of dehydrated potato slices into freezer bags and added one recipe of the basic sauce mix in a sandwich bag, on top of the potato slices, and sealed the freezer bag. So now when I want scalloped potatoes, all I have to do is grab a bag of mix from the pantry, dump it into a crock pot, add water and butter and ta-da...scalloped potatoes for supper. I can always add a jar of my home canned ham cubes or bacon or shredded cheese about an hour before serving. The recipe is here.
Is anyone besides me already tired of political ads and politics 24/7 on most of the news outlets? Good grief! We have a year and a half to go until the next presidential election. Give it a rest for a little while before we have total politics burn-out. And as a side note, someone needs to tell Bernie et al, there is no such thing as free lunch. Someone has to pay the bills for their 'Free Medicare For All' ideas. A good sized chunk of money is taken from my Social Security every month to cover my Medicare. I'm not complaining. I have decent coverage. But it is not free. Nothing is. (Soapbox kicked back into the corner now.)
Not much else going on here in my little corner of the world. Outside it is cool and rainy. Inside it is warm and cozy. I have lots to do to keep me busy. Life is good. :)
