A quiet Sunday and looking for a recipe
Slept in a bit, waking up first at 5:45 but rolled over, finally getting up just after 7 a.m.-a sleep in is all relative as I am up by 5 a.m. on workdays. I started dinner prep early, tonight's fare is a ground beef-ground turkey meatloaf that I am "Crock Pot baking" in lieu of using the oven.
Sides will be mashed potatoes, frozen organic CSA corn.
Closing out 2014 and entering 2015, finds me ever more fixed upon saving what I can for our next forever home. I need to use what is on hand, limit what needs to be purchased. Although I did use 2 cups of homemade bread crumbs that I made this morning out of the heels of my bread that I dried out, I am left with over 1 quart jars' worth. I also have a good supply of graham cracker crumbs. Does anyone have a recipe that uses graham cracker crumbs in a cookie besides the Magic Cookie bars, for whihc I used my last can of sweetened condensed milk.
This afternoon found me "swiffering" the bathrooms, as well as my bedroom, using an orange scented, generic brand swiffer cloth. I am trying to use these up out of my stockpile. I have many microfiber cloths that work just as well, and can be washed and reused. I also sponge mopped the kitchen tiled floor, as I noticed several spots where someone let something drip.
In preparation for the twin's return home from visitation with Dad, I made their beds, switching over from a quilt (now at the end of the beds) to the vintage Bates bedspreads that my brother's used to use. Since they both received new fleece lap blankets for Christmas, I am washing their older ones and will store those in a bag in my car, for emergencies. A fruitfull day so far.
