Odds & Ends

A favorite meal, in our family, is hamburger stroganoff over homemade noodles. The stroganoff I make is easy and delicious. I brown 1 lb ground beef...when it is ready ~ I add a can of cream of mushroom soup, salt, pepper, and a small can of mushrooms. I will let it cook till hot....then add some sour cream. I usually add a little less than a cup...but you can add as much as you like! Heat till bubbly-hot and serve over noodles!

Delicious! :)

I am excited to share this *beauty* with you...

It is an oil lamp, my sister had and never used. She offered it to me and I gladly accepted it! I gave her (the lamp, not my sister!) a good ole washing-down and then found her a home...

For supper, last evening, I tried a new recipe. I had a box of Bisquick that I had to use in a previous recipe that I made. I don't use it much and wondered how I would use up the rest of the box. Then I found THIS recipe, for chicken fingers, and tried it out! They are terrific! Even my Christopher, a-not-big-on-chicken-kinda-guy, liked them!

I sliced up some potatoes and made some fries, in the oven! They were the perfect dish to go along with the chicken fingers!

After supper was cleaned up, candles were lit and enjoyed...

Madelyn was treated to a sleepover at Grammie and Pop-Pop's the littlest loves and I played an I Spy game together.

Then, while Chris helped his brother with moving a desk, the boys and I visited with my sister-in-love, Nikki and my nephew...who, I am excited to report is starting to *walk* and just as handsome as can be (Goodness, where has the past year gone?)!

Today has been a bit of a slower day...still cold and lots of snow outside. Chris got wood for the woodstove while I did laundry, dishes, picking-up and the like, around the house. I'm not sure what the *evening* will hold in store. I hope you are enjoying your weekend! So glad you stopped by for a visit! :)
