I went to see my parents today. The staff at their retirement home decorate for all the holidays. It seems they’ve cut back quite a bit this year but these are a few pretty things I saw today
Cute tree with a snowman topper and train at the base
I like these faux lampposts too- I saw several of them.
At home I did a little food prep.
We had egg roll in a bowl for supper so early in the day I chopped the veggies and made a small sandwich topping box.
There are many variations of egg roll in a bowl- I browned 1/2 pound ground beef with grated onion, then added in 3 grated carrots and a pound of diced cabbage. Let it all cook covered on medium until done, season with low sodium soy sauce and pepper. Other variations add in more kinds seasoning and other veggies but we like it just like I cooked.
That pack of ground beef was 1 1/2 pounds. I’ll use the rest for burgers tomorrow.
We went to a new store in our town this afternoon. It’s a discount and salvage type store, not a chain but a locally owned small business.
It’s a very nice store. Everything I looked at seemed cheaper than I remember from other stores.
So, we bought a cart of stuff
A new to me product found at Walmart pickup is Hershey chocolate mint candy canes,
To me, they taste just like a York peppermint Patty but take a longer eat for just 50 calories.
