The week-end's over...

Wow. Just like that. Pffftt. Over.

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...

Yep... pffft... just like that... sums it up! (except for when I have to work the weekend, then it drags by) I don't cook as much these days either. I've had the pineapple casserole before and my family loves it. It's got to be good if it has Ritz crackers in it!
