Every Day

A Little of This and a Little of That

Grilled Reuben sandwiches were our dinner last night. It was made on marble rye bread with sliced corned beef slices, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and homemade Russian dressing. Hubby put them together and grilled them on our indoor grill. They were so good.

Breakfast yesterday was sausage and egg with grilled peppers in it and cheese McMuffins. We love them and have to use up the English muffins before they go bad. Today’s brunch for me was the leftover home fries from our breakfast out on Sunday. I cooked them with some butter to heat them through. That was all I wanted. I had a headache and was not too hungry. Hubby had sausage and eggs.

Dinner tonight was Rastelli’s rib eye pork chops with some Epicurean Herb Butter on top. We had some macaroni and cheese with it and Hubby was making a quick green salad to go with all of it while I was taking this picture.

I have only gone out to the Post Office this week. We had a very busy day yesterday submitting our meter readings to the electric and gas company, getting paperwork all filled out to go to the Post Office, rolling over a large Share Certificate that was expiring to a 5% interest one, doing laundry, calling my sister for our Monday chat and a bunch of other little things. I did get a Free coupon and a $1.00 off one for Ken’s salad dressing in the mail.

Hubby’s computer decided to turn on the day after we thought it had died. However it is 5-6 years old so he purchased one from Dell but they say it will take a month to build what he wants. So hopefully, his will hold up until the new one comes.

We spent the day working in the basement again today. Hopefully it will be done soon. I also cleaned the inside of the refrigerator today. Now I have to fold the load of laundry I did today.

How are you doing keeping your grocery bills down?

Hi Precious! Your meals look good. Our chili Monday was good. Yesterday I made lasagna with Italian sausage instead of hamburger. I used the leftover pizza sauce as a base to make the sauce for the lasagna. I had the other things I needed to make it. It was so good. We had broiled asparagus and canned peaches for sides.

It has been a good week so far. Hubby is working on some drawings for the engineers in his office, but it is not a hurry up we need them yesterday type of thing, so that is good. We went yesterday to get our taxes that we had done this year. No surprises. I did a good job figuring out Hubby’s withholding last year, only getting $60 from federal. And we will get a refund from the state and have to pay local. Like usual. Today hubby has a couple of contractors coming to give estimates to paint the trim on our outside. We do have a 2 story house, even though our bedroom is on the first floor. So it will be interesting to see what they come in at. It needs to be done.

Hi Chris,

I love chili. Nice meal yesterday. I always make my lasagna with 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 Italian sausage. You just reminded me to put some canned fruit in the refrigerator. Thanks.

That is a good job on withholding. We didn’t have to pay anyone this year. Got a nice refund because of our energy credit from Federal Painters are expensive,

We had the great room, breakfast room, kitchen, master bedroom and hallways done after we moved in here. It was almost $6300. and that was 14 years ago. We have to hire a painter soon to paint our ceilings in the breakfast room, kitchen and hallways, and great room and I am not looking forward to the price. Let me know how you make out with your estimate.
