Good Monday Mornin' Yall,
Burrrr!!!! It is cold out here this morning. It is 31 degrees with a windchill of 24 degrees. Yesterday it got up to 68 degrees here and we had some rain. "THANK GOD" there were no Severe Thunderstorms as was predicted earlier in the week. I had turned my air-conditioner back on a while Saturday evening and had it on and off yesterday as well. I had to turn the heat back on again last night before I went to bed. Sure wish it would make up it's mind if it is going to be cold or warm.LOL. While I had the air-conditioner on, hubby and girls were freezing. When you are up doing things, or at least for me, I get all hot and sweaty. Oh well, it passed. I did turn it completely off Saturday night. But, the heat is back on again this morning and running.
I want to "THANK" each and everyone that said prayers for my hubby. He is feeling some better. I found some medicines in the cabinet from when I was sick and started him on those Friday night. Those headcolds sure do like to hang around for a while. They seem to wear their "WELCOME OUT" as people would say. LOL. I am feeling some better as well.
Saturday morning I wasn't able to go to my oldest daughter's Basketball games. I was hurting and had to take some pills and go back to bed. Their first game was here in town that morning and they played Wilson, AR. They lost 34 to 21. This is the team they played first in the season to and lost to. The second games was out of town at Lake City, AR, that afternoon. The won 29 to 18. GO REBELS!!!! I'm sure they were both good games. Hubby took her to her games on Saturday. Even tho he wasn't feeling up to par, he told me to stay here and lay around. I thought that was so sweet of him. I know the reason he does it is because , well one reason is because he Loves his girls, and the other is because he is gone alot and isn't able to see all their activities. So, Saturday was a Father/Daughter day. They left home at 10:15a.m. Saturday morning and didn't get back home until 5:00p.m. They had a whole day of togetherness.
Friday night I had put a Beef Roast in my slow cooker by itself. Well, Saturday afternoon after I had woke up from sleeping(my pills make me a little sleepy), I cut up some potatoes and some baby carrots and a 1/4 head of cabbage and put it in a pot on the stove to boil. I also made a pan of homemade buttermilk cornbread to go with it. I had supper ready for them when they came home Saturday evening. It was all so yummy. Most of the time when I cook a roast I put the potatoes and carrots in with the roast. I wanted to try something different this time. I'm glad I did because hubby really loved it. We had plenty left so we had leftovers for our supper Sunday night. I had fixed Brunch on Sunday. I fried some sausage and opened up a couple of cans of those Jumbo Biscuits. I also fried some eggs for hubby and youngest daughter. My oldest daughter wanted scrambled eggs, so I scrambled her some. I had already had a bowl of plain cornflakes so I wasn't hungry. I did eat a couple of sausage and biscuits later on. Needless to say, we will be having leftovers again tonight. I think we will finish it off tonight. I love to cook this way where it will last a few days. That way all I have to do is just heat it up. LOL. Hey, there is nothing wrong with leftovers here in our house. Sometimes them leftovers taste better the second and third time around. I will make another pan of cornbread for tonight. We ate all the cornbread last night.
Well, my daughter doesn't have a game tonight after all. It was on the schedule but there were some question marks beside it. We were scheduled to play Luxora, AR here. You may remember me telling about that game last week when we played them at Luxora, AR. She will just have her regular basketball practice tonight. I'm glad we have a slow week. I think her next game is on the 15th of this month. I do know there are a couple of games that wasn't on the schedule, but I'm not sure when they will be playing those games. So, that means my youngest daughter won't be Cheering tonight.
I was laying in bed Friday night watching Food Network. Yes, I'm a big Food Network fan here. I was watching the All Star Holiday Show and Paula Deen was on there with Robert Irvine at her home in Georgia. She made some Black-Eye Pea Fritters with some Cranberry Sauce dip. Oh my goodness, it looked so yummy. I think I am going to try and make them for here on Christmas Eve. They looked really easy to make as well as the dip. I may even make some for New Year's Eve as well. Me and hubby don't go out and party. The last few years we have been having a celebration at our house with the girls. I usually get some finger foods and we have that to snack on. I usually buy the girls some Non-Alcoholic beverage to drink and then me and hubby has our Champagne. That is how we bring our New Year in. How do you celebrate New Year's Eve? Please feel free to let me know in your comments if you want to. Then, on New Year's Day, I always cook a pot of Black-Eye Peas for "GOOD LUCK". And it wouldn't be good without my homemade buttermilk cornbread. Have I made you hungry yet? LOL. I was out visiting yesterday in blogland and people were talking about different kinds of food and had my mouth watering. LOL. So now, it is my time to make your mouths water. LOL. No, I'm just kidding with you. I had to add a little humor this morning.
Well, I do hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend. I hope you will have a great Monday as well. Take care my friends and have a great Monday. May God Bless You and Yours. If it's cold in your area, stay warm.
LOVE & HUGS,
