    Nan - I'm so sorry your Angel is sick. I'll be praying that she gets well soon and also that you get good results on Buddy's MRI.

    $150 for cut and color???????:scared1: My hairdresser charges $65.

    What a dreary day !!!! DH started painting Luke's new bedroom today, so I went out with the kids to run errands. My parents offered to keep Luke with them so I could run around easier. I was so grateful because it was hard enough getting Emma in and out in the rain.

    WFD- Chicken cutlets with pasta.

    ----------------

    Nancy- sending prayerd for Buddy's MRI review.

    Maria- why were you posting at 1am last night?? Are you still having insomnia? Bread pudding sound yummy!!! I love it, DH not so much. Just like I love grapenut pudding...darn guy lives for chocolate cake, not me.

    Marilyn, pumpkin cookies sound great to me. Recipe please.

    Gretchen, so exciting building a new home. Glad to hear hailey is coping better.

    Kathy, what a guy you have pampering with your takeout. How are Kyle's spirits this weekend? Is he still with Mariah?

    Aimee, I pull those grey hairs as well. We better start listening to Sheryl. ;)

    Becky, I love those personal size LeCreuset casseroles. Dinner looks great as usual.

    God bless parents, cherish them every day my friend.:hug:

    Yep, I think I'll hold on to my guy for a while.;) Kyle is in great spirits. He's always been the kind of guy that doesn't let anything weigh on his mind for long, wish I could be that way. I really don't understand the kids today and their relationships. He tells me they're just friends yet they talk on the phone 30 times a day. Now he says they are "getting back together". I give up trying to figure it out.:upsidedow As long as he's happy I'm OK.:goodvibes

    Hi All,

    Complete change of plans for dinner.....1st we decided not to go out to dinner, then it was gong to be the bison, I didn't want that so Greg is out picking up yummy cheddar burgers & onion rings.
    We will have the bison tomorrow, I will take some photos but I have Becky picture intimidation:rotfl:hence why I have stopped posting my food porn.

    Ann, the insomnia isn't as bad as it was but still gets me. Thank you for asking. What color are you painting Luke's room?

    Aimee, how are you feeling?

    Nan,praying for a good doctor report for Buddy. Poor Kady. So many of our little ones have been down & out:hug: on WFD.
    I miss Marissa on WFD:hug:

    Color & cut is $165 + tip here. If I get a gloss it's a bit higher.

    Was hoping to hear from Vicky today....

    I'll take a look at it - I know people rave about their soup (I can't remember it being stand out, but we had such a bad exp there that I've blocked most of the experience). If you can hunt down yours, I'd love to have it! :goodvibes

    Eh. :sick: Thanks for asking :hug:


    We ended up going out when I had to run errands for tomorrow.

    Aimee--we don't keep that drug at our pharmacy, so I have no experience with it. Hope it starts working soon.

    The cost of hair up-keep is what keeps me out of the salon except a few times a year. I'm just too cheap. I get a really good haircut a few times a year and color it myself.

    Kathy--take care of that ankle! Hope you're having a good time with Kyle at home!

    We had a nice day of fundraising. We spent much more than planned but all for a good cause. I did manage to place the winning bid on the class Christmas artwork. We also had the winning bid on an afternoon painting pottery with your teacher. Emma is so excited about being able to spend an afternoon alone with her teachers. Now time for bed. We have church tomorrow and then we're going to try and see the toy story double feature in the afternoon.

    I dont know if these are considered recipies but there both 5 minute meals and pouplar with kids.

    You need:
    A pack of FLOUR tortilas (corn dont taste right)
    Pizza sauce (you dont use much so I recomend the kind in the squeeze bottle)
    meat (not alot, less than half a pound)
    cheese (whatever kind you like on pizza)

    precook meat
    Open tortilas, spread on some sauce, toss in other ingredents, MAKE SURE some of your cheese is near the edge. Then you toss it in the microwave for around 30 seconds (to melt the chese). Take out, fold into thirds (lengthwise) and make sure you have a cheezy edge on top. Press down and it should stick.
    Serves 12 (depending on tortilla pack size)


    Another "recipe" to use up leftovers

    same ingredents MINUS tortilla. You also need bread

    Put pizza sauce on bread. Put ingredents on One side. Put other peice of bread on top. Place in sandwich maker (or microwave but it dosn't come out as well). Serve.

    Bethany I really like peasant. My cousin used to hunt peasants before his stroke. It makes a really good soup. I think it has a turkey taste. I have never had quail though.

    Last nights soup was good. But I wonder if I left out the celery if I would like it more.

    Aimee More than half of a beer cheese soup success or failure is in the beer you choose. That much I've learned.

    Tonight is Glynis' pot roast in the crockpot.

    I will get the recipe from DM sometime this week for you. She makes it for me because it would go to waste at my house and Dad loves it.

    I am going to try your Italian Ravioli Stew this week, I bought the fixings and am going to add me own twist to it. I figure I better put some meat in there for DH. I am going to try adding mini pork meatballs to it.

    $165 for your hair :scared1: , I thought $115 was bad...that is why I no longer highlight eventhough it is my favorite look for my hair. I just can't justify the expense with not working.

    I am painting the room "Wild Porcini". It is a taupe. I am going with a sports theme with accents of denim, red, and blue.

    I sure do! I will never take my time with them for granted. I know my kids and I are so lucky to have them. :hug:

    ----------

    My little guy woke up all congested last night around 11pm. We had a rough night. Poor thing's sinuses are so congested and his nose is runny. No temp.
    I just gave him some Triaminic. I hate having the kids sick, and I worry about him giving it to Emma.

    DH is at the Patriots game today. My DM made him pulled pork to tailgate with. I will probably be eating pulled pork myself.

    Oh Vickie :hug: I hope you feel better quickly! That sounds terrible!

    I JUST woke up. Usually I wake up at 5:30 everyday, including weekends. But yesterday I slept in until 7:30 (I was out at a friend's house chatting in her backyard (and swatting mosquitoes LOL) until midnight on Friday night. Then last night we didn't go to sleep until 1 because of the Gretna Fest. I got up at 9:30 and poor Anabelle was like :confused3.

    I paid $13 including tip for my haircut (no color/styling) a few weeks ago. :rolleyes1

    Good Morning! I hope everyone is doing well...I have not really read back but hope to do so later. Just wanted to check in so you know I am OK. Busy trying to get done and trying to make a dent in the garage...UGH! I sound like a broken record so I will shut up now.

    I picked up a few things at Macys yesterday so I am pretty much set for my trip. I have to get a few pairs of capris taken in in the waist. I HATE that problem!

    Going to a vendor show at a local firehouse. My friend is running it so I wanted to get out of the house a but. I am sure the Mary Kay lady will try and sell me stuff but I :love: my current MK lady Sheryl!!! I wonder if it will be the lady that stops me all the time in Wally World...speaking of Wally World, that is where I need to go later and then stop for some groceries.

    I decided not to do the walk a thon today. It is an hour away and I just dont have time. I gave a donation instead.

    Not sure about dinner. I have been bad but still down a pound...not going to make my Disney goal on the weight loss. oh well. Andrew is by his Dad... they are going to the pay per view wrestling tonight so if you watch, look out for A!

    Hugs to all! BBL...

    Oh Vickie :scared1:, please take care of yourself. We are thinking of you and sending love. Rest, rest, rest so you can enjoy your trip.

    Bethany, I am impressed you gave in to Sheryl. You are becoming a gourmet my friend!;)

    Sheryl, you are right about the recipe. I think the recipe she uses was originally on the grapenut box but not sure if it still is. I can picture and actual piece of the cutout box in her recipe box. Speaking of recipe boxes I told DM the other day I wanted her recipe box as my inheritance and my SILs better not even think of touching it. :lmao:

    Tired of wiping this little nose and washing my hands a 1,000 times!!:eek:
