I did go to a store I've been hearing about that's only open 2 days a week. It's called "Real Deals" and it's decorator stuff and pretties. They do have low prices, which they advertise on the radio.
I was a real big spender. I think I plopped down $6. I even had a "secret word" to tell them at the register to get an additional 15% off - which was kinda sad because the most expensive thing I got was $3.95.
I should have bought that little lovely table for $220.00 - 15% would have seemed sooo much bigger.
Anyway, I'm into birds lately. must be a 'spring thing' - or something. But here are 3 that I bought - and a sign that I couldn't refuse:
Kinda fun, huh?
Then I had asked to make dinner - something of a rarity for me. And Mr. B agreed -something of a rarity for him as well!
When I told him what 2 dishes I was making, he was less than enthusiastic. But, as they say, the proof is in the pudding. Here's the remains of the day:
Doesn't hold much in the"looks" category, but since it's just us, we usually don't bother dirtying serving dishes.
One was a poppy seed, chicken and sour cream casserole with Ritz crackers. The other is a pineapple casserole that also has Ritz crackers and cheddar cheeses. Tastes sooo much better than it sounds! It's really yummy.
I guess you could say "Tonight's diner is brought to you by...Ritz crackers - the versatile cracker"....well, you could....
Anyway, Mr. B loved them BOTH. The way you know he likes one of my new recipes is he says 'It's a do-again". Kind of like the Pope's blessing.....or the Godfather's......
So that was kind of my week-end in a nutshell. Other than the usual laundry, putting the rest of the Christmas up (can you believe that!) and taking the pups for a walk- just an ordinary, wonderful week-end.
Hope your was all that you wanted it to be.
Thanks for stopping by...
