My daughter tried a new recipe this week for Paula Deen Cheeseburger Meatloaf
It was a big hit with her family as you can see from the texts between her and her husband.
The changes she made to the recipe were omitting the bell pepper, using gluten free products and “not measuring”.
We had 5 grandchildren and my parents here for 1 meal this week. My husband smoked a spiral ham and I made this macaroni and cheese
9 of us were eating and we all thought this was macaroni and cheese was especially good. My changes- I used 3 cups of medium size shells instead of 2 cups of macaroni pasta. I made it ahead but didn’t bake it. I put it in a casserole dish and at serving time, I heated it, covered, in the microwave until bubbly.
I plan to keep this recipe and make it again, especially when we have guests or a big family meal.
I didn’t get much at all done last week as that cold or flu from the previous week was still keeping me down.
I did get 3 pair of dress pants hemmed for a son and I turned 5 fleece blankets into Quillows.
We all like using these soft fleece blankets and I have a bunch of them. But they take up a lot of room and never seem to look neatly stacked.
In my crazy fabric stash, I have quite a few printed fabric panels. So I picked out some that would coordinate with our blankets.
I sewed up double sided pockets and then sewed a pocket at the center bottom of each blanket.
Then the blankets get folded and tucked into the pocket.
I’m really happy with them. I think the prints add some fun to the toy room and I am thrilled with how neat the pillows look, rather than a pile of haphazardly folded blankets.
If you need more info on quillows, look on Pinterest as there are some really good tutorials there.
My cold really is better and my coughing is 99% gone.
But this coming week won’t be very productive either as I’m getting my wisdom teeth extracted.
So, I’ll do what I feel up too but I think I’ll mostly be laying around using ice packs and eating soup, jello and ice cream.
Have a good week everyone ❤️
