  1. Hi all What’s for dinner? Today, I made bolillo bread/rolls, menudo, black eyed peas. DH wants French dips, using the prime rib/ribeye roast from Christmas, hence, the bolillo rolls. Actually found a simple recipe made the old fashioned way... DH says the taste authentic.

    Windy, temps are supposed to drop, then, mellow out here in TX. Sunday, I’m hoping it’s fair weather for traveling.

    We got the clear child proof plug protectors from WM because of our ferrets. We also had to get the wire harness tubes to protect the wiring on all our appliances, lamps, etc. Of course, Jeepers, you shouldn’t have to worry about your little one chewing on the wires. Today was getting the car checked out & an oil change. Looked at one of their Dodge caravans, it had everything we wanted, but it was black with a black interior & black seats. Can you imagine how hot that would be when it’s 115* out? Nope, not going to happen. And, just to make me chuckle, it had heated seats too. The car checked out fine. So, hopefully nothing is wrong. Picked up some 9 mil rubber gloves from Harbor Freight and then came home. Took mom to the bank, pharmacy, dinner & the grocery store, came home & took it easy the rest of the day. We watched the news, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Last Man Standing, then, Live PD. The last call was a disturbance call, we couldn’t believe how many people filed out of that apartment and they were still coming out as they went to commercial. DH’s comment, “that wasn’t an apartment, it was a clown car”. His guess was close to 100 people. It was extremely windy today, the news said it averaged 45 mph with gusts up to 65. Whoosh! It’s supposed to calm down around midnight and get cold. Tomorrow, I hope to get some weeding done in mom’s yard. It isn’t bad, but the only green in her yard right now, are weeds.

    A Chocolate Tragedy

    Nice! WE2. The Chamber Installation meeting went well. The Director and the Mexican Chamber were there too. I subbed for our regular Lady, who takes pictures for the history book, while she got her new job with the Chamber for the next 2 years. They also honored our oldest members, 96, 95, & 98. They made the comment, ‘I hope I look as good as they do, and still wearing high heels..”. Lol. They are the sweetest group. Hilton served a little garden salad, rolls, chicken breast with a little cream cheese, saffron rice with sautéed onions & spinach topped with sliced carrots very lightly cooked. Desert was cheese cake with a strawberry syrup. (I’m allergic to strawberries so, I only had a little of it that didn’t have any on it). Brought the Ladies home & rested the remainder of the day. And, of course, mom watched the news, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune..... and football replays... Tomorrow, I need to take the car in for an oil change and have them check to see why it is running rough. Not a big issue, but, I don’t need to be stranded an 100 miles out in the middle of nowhere.

    Their quote in one article was a “sweet” mess to clean up.

    Made it to TX with almost nothing happening... First a double flatbed semitruck pulled out in front of me and drove 25 mph to the stop sign, he went through the 4 way, another truck went thru, and it was my turn, but the lady that sped up and got there afterwards, on the other side, decided it was her turn. She almost broadsided me, but my breaks worked. Then, a flat bed pickup pulled out in front of the line of traffic in front of us, and was going 25 mph... I saw no traffic coming, so I punched it to pass the 4 others in front of me.... oops.... an officer was attempting to pull over a car, who was only doing 20 mph. With them in my rear view, the very next intersection, someone was laying on the ground in the middle of the road...another person was trying to get her up & out of the way. Yikes! She seemed ok and she was smiling... really?! Crazy day. Soooo... tomorrow morning I am the driver to pick up Ladies for the Chamber meeting... time to get some sleep 💤. 🛏

    Took it easy today, watching the neighbor build a brick fence. Listening to the neighbor kids play, watching birds feed & choose mates, while selecting nesting materials from the yard. Planted a piece of ginger root in a pot in the house. Was surprised when I collected the soil from the garden, I think I ended up with several earth worms in the pot. I am very impressed with all the worms I have seen recently. The ones I put in the lick tank have seemed to made it out the drain, worm signs all around it now and I am finding drowned worms on the sidewalk after the rain. When I get back from TX, I will turn the garden and get it planted. DH is saving his cup of soup styrofoam cups so I can use them to start the seedlings. Tomorrow, God willing, I will be able to get the rest of my stuff done for the trip.

    What’s For Dinner 2019

    Tonight was reheated, on the barbecue, rib roast slices from Christmas, micro-baked potatoes-put on the grill to thicken the skins, I take DH’s skins, corn on the cob, leftover from MIL’s caldeo she made in Nov., and a small piece of DH’s Andouille sausage. A feast, but, I am preparing to go to MIL’s on Wednesday, so I’m trying to fill him up with home cooking.

    Poor kitty.... Wow! It was a nice day here. Mid 60’s. Cleaned house & was able to get the laundry done. Covered them on the last load, because the clouds were stacking up and they are saying snow above 5,000’. Little brother, drives big trucks, said he stopped in Tennessee, because the storm was hitting him hard. He has to get to MI tomorrow.

    wallmart horror stories?

    I miss K-Mart. WM... I have products we regularly use. But they don’t keep them stocked. DH likes Uncle Bens long grain & wild rice, in the box. They quit stocking it and went to the plastic bags. one day the manager was in the isle, doing her shopping and she asked what I was looking for. I told her what & why, and she agreed with me. They’ve actually kept the box stocked since then. We get the 55lb. bags of dog food, 1-2 times a month. I look for someone to help me put it in the cart, amazingly, no one is around. One associate told me no, she wasn’t going to help (cause she was 6 weeks pregnant) ok, I understand, but she wouldn’t even get someone else to help me. Not keeping the shelves stocked, carts that feel like the wheels are stuck, or veer right/left, long lines at the check out with associates standing by just watching, old meat, opened jars (I’ve brought back). And, you have to keep an eye on the price they charge. Several times, I’ve held up the line because of overcharging on something. The sign said, avocados were 2 for .88 cents, they charged me.88 each. Yeah, that didn’t go well either. The sad thing is we have very little choices for shopping. WM is 10 miles away. Safeway is 11 miles and charges, at least, .50 cents more per item. The other Safeway is 15 miles away. The local mom/pop grocery stores charge even more per item, and you definitely have to watch expiration dates and meat freshness. Other options are over 35 miles away. Adding gas prices, sometimes it is cheaper to use the local market.
