Just Because the Oven Is Hot!

I’ve got to quit cooking and baking!…

or do I…

I got up early as I usually do…

Waffles kept calling my name… and I hoped everyone else was in the same mode… because that is what I made…

Blueberry Waffle Mix with extra blueberries and my homemade blueberry jam…

Love lots of Blueberries

I checked in the mirror to see if I had turned blue… but, no I was just fine… but, I did have a smile on my face!…

I then decided to make a Coconut Cake for my husband… No… he doesn’t need it… but, I treat him sometimes… Oh… get real… all of the time!…

Coconut Creme makes the cake so moist!

Then… that little pumpkin that I had bought was staring me in the face…

“What are you going to do with me?”, it seemed to ask…

I just decided to take all of the seeds out of it… and toast them in the oven… a little Cooking Spray… a little sprinkle of salt… and let bake until turn a light golden brown and crunchy…

I just love munching on them!…

Pulled out all of the seeds…

Baked in hot oven until golden brown and crispy!

My next thought went to dinner… and I love having things done a little ahead of schedule… so, while the oven is hot in go the three stuffed peppers I have…”the last of the last” as my Mom used to say… that my daughter-in-law’s Mother had made for me this summer… She made me 24 of them to put in the freezer… “I love you Pam!”… They were so delicious and we will enjoy the last of them later today!…

I just put a can of RO*TEL on them512-ccBBSuL__SY300_

but…

I’m not finished!…

I was on a roll…

The oven was hot and I wasn’t going to waste the heat…

and actually felt good with temperatures being low and flurries in the air…

While the peppers were baking I put together a cabbage casserole recipe a lady at the YMCA told me about…

Remember… I’m a simple person… and this was a simple recipe…

Head of cabbage cut up… I like it in long pieces… and placed in a greased (Spray Pam) baking dish (8″ X 8″) … Pour a can of Cream of Chicken Soup mixed with 1/2 c. of water over the cabbage… top with bread crumbs and pats of butter…

We will see how it tastes later along with the Peppers… but, how could it be bad!…

I think my stomach is growling… from all of the wonderful smells wafting around in my kitchen… Husband says, “It smells like a delicatessen”, as he peeks into the oven… k8579335

I’ll Never Do It Again!… ha, ha!

I guess you would say my Yard Sale k7244641 was a bust!…

The weather HAD to turn the coldest it’s been!…

With one of the ladies being elderly and in poor health… she just gave up…

and then my other neighbor got sick…

She did try today… but, did nothing!… and gave up earlyjust feeling so bad!k7942360

I… at least sold around $30.00… but, not worth the setting up… IE311-072

I am glad I cleaned out a little more…

I wasn’t bringing any of the items I took out of my house back in… So, I gave the kids in the neighborhood any toys I had… (whatever they wanted)…k2352473 and two other neighbors anything they wanted for free…

Now… at least I don’t have much to take to the Goodwill Store…

I had put up signs to advertise… around the neighborhood… k9256609 My husband drove me around to put them out… and then again to pick them up…

Hate it when people leave signs up after the event is over!…

Now, that would be a good law to enforce!

Although … not selling much… it made me happy to see people get something for free… They were happy… and said “thanks”  k13613350  many times!…

I was tired after these last two days… working harder than if I had a job…

I spent what little I made at the grocery storek6481284

Why Not?…

one place is as good as another…

So I did get something out of my Yard Sale… and Yes! I promised myself AGAIN!… that this was the last timeha, ha!…

With hauling things in and out… and loading the truck k10571895   k9542837 we just had sandwiches and soup for supper…
