CALL 911

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

DH may need to call 911 or take the cook from Our Diner to the emergency room. You see, she has just not been¬† herself today, doing a few extras, not waiting until something had to be done before doing it. She has finished preparing the spaghetti sauce and it has cooked and is quite tasty poured over bread, and now has the beef in the crock pot covered in BBQ sauce. A mixture of her own, store bought BBQ sauce, Grandma’s molasses, maple syrup and water well blended, then poured over the beef and sliced onion. Sounds good, hope it is. This will slow cook all night, DH will cut it off when he gets up in the AM and then the cook will put it in the fridge when she gets up.

Not only is she trying to get main dishes prepared ahead of time, she really went off the deep end and cleaned out the refrigerator. Not only did she empty pots, but washed them by hand and wiped down a couple of the shelves and washed out one of the storage bins. If the cook were pregnant, I would think it was about time for the birth.  lol

I really hope this is a good sign and she will continue to feel like doing more than just sitting and doing nothing or messing on the computer.

LESS THAN

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

Wow! less than 24 hours and I will be at work. This week has really gone quite well and fast. Friday seemed a little slow but the other days have just zoomed right by. I need the days at work to go by fast and the evenings give me time to do what I will need to do. An hour is an hour, so I will do the best I can.

Yesterday after DH got home from the grocery store, the cook at Our Diner prepared some stew beef with onion, garlic, sage and a little salt as seasoning. There is enough for 3 meals and she kept out enough to BBQ. Don’t know how it will taste but if we like it, fine, if not, she will not BBQ it again. She also needs to stir up some spaghetti sauce. That will be 3 meals of the 4 she must prepare. The time consuming part will be done and no more than 30 minutes to prepare the sides. I guess that is why she keeps her job, she does try to plan ahead for those meals she knows she will have to prepare, especially if she will be getting home late from work or visiting her mom.
