My husband is on vacation this week. My wonderful, amazing, talented, brother-in-law came over and put our new kitchen floor in, and I was not in the least bit nostalgic over the covering of the vintage linoleum that had been there since 1986. I love, love the wood laminate flooring.
Our week off has also included a lot of yard work. Monty is out sweeping up the, deadly-to-the bare-feet, sweet gum balls in the front yard right now. Beautiful tree---annoying spiny orbs!
Since it's basically a working vacation week, I've used my crock pot to fix the past three night's meals. We had pork chops on Sunday, a roast with carrots and potatoes, (dump part of a jar of peperoncini peppers in with roast while it cooks for a nice kick,) and a pot of beans with bacon, that will be accompanied by firehouse cornbread, on for tonight.
One word of advice. When you place your ingredients in the crock pot to begin the convenient slow cooking process...be sure to PLUG IT IN! Sorry guys, dinner is going to be an hour late tonight.
Working up a big appetites with lots of spring cleaning!
