October #8- 2 lists and stuff, etc

Good morning- I made and photographed this to-do list Sunday night 

Below is a list of meals that we have ingredients for.  I don’t usually menu plan and designate each meal for certain days in advance 
but having just a general plan like this is very helpful. 
We’ve already had taco salads, beef with mushrooms and the Joanna Gaines meal.

This recipe sounds really plain but it is delicious!  
I cut it down and used 2/3 pound of beef and 1 can of biscuits.  We had it for supper and the leftovers for a lunch.  
The salad is so good with it.  
This photo is one I took the first time I made them. 
When I made them week,  I shaped them into a turnover shape and that was much simpler than the 3 sided way described in the recipe.  

My husband’s sister sent the long pillow to us.  

A few replies 
Practical Parsimony- the reheated breakfast burritos are very good.  The eggs were not tough at all.  My husband especially liked them. 
Lejmom- we do keep water and lights in the storm building.  Our Oklahoma meteorologists are so good at telling us in advance when tornado conditions happen.  
We usually know a week ahead and can plan to be ready.  Never are we just unaware of anything and then all of a sudden a surprise tornado in heading our way.  
Terri and Tammy- those giant cookies are not for health, just for fun.  It might be hard to sell these at a yard sale and make a profit as they had 3 bags of chips in them.  
  I did find another giant cookie recipe that uses sprinkles and white chocolate chips that looks very kid-pleasing.  However she says to bake the entire recipe into just 6 cookies.  
  If I ever do make them,  they may be large cookies but not as big as the recipe writers. 

It’s been warm and windy in Oklahoma this week.  No photos but I got the biggest giggle while I was driving in town, watching several people walking in pajama pants.  
The wind was blowing their loose fitting pants around like flags and their pants seemed to have a life of their own.  
So if y’all are ever in OK on a windy day, put your long hair in a pony tail and maybe wear actual pants.  

Hope you’re all having a good week 
❤️ Rhonda 💨

We have storm shelters built into the side of the banks on roads. Well, in the country we have those. Do you have those kinds of storm shelters?

Love your menu list---I do that, too. My oldest and his wife have been here for 8 days and I know what to take out of the freezer in the morning!

I did not realize that they forecast tornados in advance...when we lived in Illinois, 35 years ago, you did not get any notice! Guess the technology is much improved. Now hurricanes...we do get advanced notice, altho the path can change in an instant. I am in S. Florida on the gulf of Mexico side.

When my kids leave tomorrow, I will have a GIANT list to do---I've done little since they arrived!

Your lists are so restful...That might sound odd but they are. Orderly, neat and do-able. I am missing my routines but not much to be done about that at present and that's okay.

Hi Rhonda!! It's Kate. I never get the reply so don't bother replying (I have so many aliases! I never know which email and so on) but I just want to say hi, that I always come here when I need some down home life and I love the blogs you read and get into those too!! I hope you are always here.
