Just a quickie note, Jan. It is o four fifty AM and my son just went to bed downstairs. We've had a delightful evening talking. I think this is the first time we've just sat around and talked since he got married. He bought a really nice risling wine he wanted me to try and it was just the right thing for us when we got home. We went shopping on the way back down from Anacortes.
We stopped at Uwajimaya because they still have their New Year sales until tomorrow evening. I wanted to take advantage of those sales. Tomorrow we will be going to do laundry for both of us and I will do some shopping at the store in Eatonville. Sometimes they have some really good bargains. This time they have chicken breast tenders and I picked up some orange ginger sauce at Winco that I want to try with the chicken.
I also got some extra lean ground beef that was marked way down, at Uwajimaya, along with lamb stew meat and ground lamb, and sukiyaki sliced beef. That is really hard to find. The butcher shop in Eatonville cut it for me but I hate to ask them because they haven't a clue how it should be cut. I got shrimp and a couple of packages of marinated salmon at Winco and some Morning Star sausage patties, (some of which are maple flavored) I got all kinds of beautiful vegetables and even a cheese colored cauliflower. I had never seen that before..
I have to go to bed right now or I'll never wake up tomorrow. See you later.
Hi everyone Washed my sheets and made the bed. Been putting things in my cabinet. I came up with the idea of puting peg board in the middle of my cabinet doors. I was thinking I will cover the front with material and use the back for hanging scrap book tools. We will see how it goes.
Ann - it is really cold today. We are suppose to get 3-8 inches of snow . It started at 9am this morning and it is still snowing.
Kitty - enjoy that warm weather . We lived on property and had chickens , pigs, rabbits , and goats. The only cows we had were other peoples. It was open range. My dog use to chase them away. But I sure do know what mud is like and fencing to keep cows out of the garden. It was always a lot of work.
Jan - I do not know about Red Lobster Biscuits but 2 days ago I made Jumbo Cheesy Biscuits. It was in the June 2002 Newsletter. I do not know if they are the same, but they sure are yummy. I tweaked the recipe as I do not like them too sweet and the baking powder has to be reduced half for the altitude here. But I can eat them without even any butter.
I will go and post the recipe in the recipe section. Nina

It's foggy and 45 degrees here this morning. I'm doing Monday housecleaning and laundry. The guest room is back in order.
Ann, I think JoAnna had a knock off recipe of the Red Lobster biscuits, too, but I haven't made them either. In Oregon you now have to have a certified birth certificate (not the card). Our son just renewed his license and he was told you just show the certified one once and then other id for subsequent ones I guess. It makes me chuckle because Mom always told us to get her drivers license she sent in $1.00 and they mailed it to her.
I have some leftover soup and birthday cake to feed Bruce today so it will be an easy day cookwise.
Judy, I hope it works out you can visit with your son or your daughter.

Ann, it is warm for West Virginia. It was 50 degrees early this morning and I'm sure warmer now. We had rain during the night. Makes for mud, but I think I'd just as soon wade mud as snow! At least it is a change. How are you feeling now? I am afraid I haven't kept up with the posts very well.
Hubby's shoulder seems to be mending. His next dr apt is Feb. 21. So I guess we will find out more then.
When I went to milk last evening, the cow kept mooing at me from above the barn. I couldn't figure out why she was up there because the gate was closed. Anyway I opened the gate and let her through so she could come into the barn. Then I checked fence this morning and there were strands of wire down in two different places. So that answered that question. I patched it up for now. Seems like there is always something demanding my attention!!
Today has been mostly a paperwork day: bills, rebates, etc. And just a pick up in general day.
Burrrrrr another cold morning. I know I don't really know what cold feels like as most of you have it so much worse but I am still cold.
Judy, I consider most hard cheese to be strong. About the best I can get in the low fat variety is Kraft 2% sharp cheese. Yesterday I made a Scalloped Tuna potato casserole for supper. It was from the Easy and Economical cook book. I have just enough for my supper tonight. DH will eat at the lodge. All my cook books have little post it notes too on the good sounding recipe pages.
Patty, I bet I have a clone recipe or two for the Red Lobster Cheddar biscuits. I love them too. I've never tried to make them though. I do make cheese biscuits by just adding shredded cheese to the dough. It is always for the holidays when the kids come to eat.
Yesterday I packed up the 20W pants to take to the thrift store. I will keep the 18's. I've got to get to Pennys and try on a couple of sizes as I have no idea what I wear. Then I can look on line. Bras are anothet thing. I bought some at Kohl's a while back that I really like but now are too big and that style doesn't come in a smaller size.
I finished reading my book and now do I start another one or concentrate on the Ca. Drivers Handbook. I have to take my eye and written drivers test before my birthday in March. I hate hate hate taking tests.
