Last week’s meal plan worked out really well and I cooked everything but 1 meal on the schedule.
My husband picked spinach and a few strawberries. Big or small harvest, we enjoy whatever grows.
I always get a kick out of the chicken marinating in dill pickle juice- the recipe is linked in my previous post.
I served the dill pickle chicken with fried rice
We had a busy weekend!
We had a house guest and a family here and neighborhood yard sales, also grands had dance recitals and baseball tournaments.
I baked a coffee cake and blueberry muffins for our weekend breakfasts. They were good but not recipes worth sharing or baking again.
We watched a streaming church service this morning and it was really good!
I think thats just an overlooked typo- and it should say sons not sis
Sunday lunch was grilled burgers grilled today by my husband and everything else was leftover from yesterday’s family meal.
It was nice to have an easy meal ❤️
I spent part of this afternoon cleaning house so that’s why there is not much in the cleaning category.
Grandchild #9 will be spending most summer week days with us so I will adjust my to-dos to just necessary stuff for now.
And that’s fine - one thing I know is kiddos grow up very fast
And lastly, we have lots of lilies blooming right now- yellow, white, pink, red and orange. They are quite showy!
About washing machines- my new machine does have a center agitator and a huge tub. It has a water lever sensor and you can let the machine decide how much water it needs for the load or you can set the load for a full tub regardless of size. It also self adjusts if a load get unbalanced. So far- I’m very happy with this new machine.
If you want to look at it more closely - https://www.lowes.com/pd/Maytag-Commercial-Grade-3-5-cu-ft-High-Efficiency-Top-Load-Washer-White/1002579758
It runs about $1000 so if that price won’t work for you, don’t look. There are cheaper machines that still work great.
If you think my washer is fancy, this is the set my daughter in law bought.
It’s a washer and dryer set, both appliances will do a small load and a large load simultaneously.
But it’s a very heavy set and they live in an old farmhouse, so it’s too heavy for the laundry room floor and they will need to upgrade their floors. Also it uses more water than their current plumbing can drain so they are going to need to update their plumbing too.
If you’re wondering how heavy, it took 4 men to set the washer in place 😳 I’m just guessing but it may be too heavy for mobile homes and maybe upper floors too.
I had no idea washers and dryers came with so many features.
Hope you all have a good week
