I’ve just about spent all of today doing nothing but going to the dentist. I’m getting a crown and he had to do some extra numbing. It’s just now wearing off so maybe I can get back to normal life now.
Grandchildren were with us the last few days and they have all reached the age where they really eat -
3 of them were here one day and we got takeout pizza for lunch, I like using the Little Caesar app for ordering. When you arrive at the store, the pizzas are waiting in a hot box. You just enter your code, take out the pizza and leave- no standing in line
While they went with Grandpa to pick up the pizza, I baked a batch of cake mix cookies
These were yellow cake mix with chocolate chips -
Just use any cake mix- add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of oil and about a cup of any addition like chocolate chips, nuts, oatmeal. Etc
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes
I went to my very first yardsale of 2020 on Friday. I saw the signs on my way to pick up grandchildren and stopped.
I got 3 vintage magazines and a slimline beverage dispenser. The dispenser is now in the fridge full of Crystal Light and it works great.
This magazine was printed in the middle of World War II. It reminds me of my grandmother. She was a farm wife with 2 sons and 2 sons in law all serving during WWII. ( and they all returned home alive)
Victory gardens were a topic in this issue and I thought these cartoons were funny
And not about gardening but funny
Later in the week, 2 grandsons were here and they happily ate
Baked tacos and homemade cinnamon rolls
Baked tacos are so good and so easy!
Just put the shells straight from the box into a baking dish. Add grated cheese and warm taco filling to each. Then bake for about 5 minutes at 375 degrees.
Remove from oven, add toppings and serve
I made the cinnamon roll dough in a bread machine and used this recipe, but no sticky topping. I just frosted them and added some chopped pecans (and one grandson was not thrilled with the nuts so he looked carefully and picked a roll with the fewest nuts)
Then later in the weekend, the 5 local grandchildren were all here at the same time. They have not seen each other much during the 🦠 and they had lots of fun together.
They are getting big, aren’t they? The are 10, 5, 8, 7 and 11!
Babies don’t stay babies very long at all.
Have a good week everyone
