Sunday Dinner, July 29, 2007

Once again Sunday is upon us. And once again, I have no intention of cooking for Sunday Dinner this week.

As far as I'm concerned we can go out to eat somewhere or everybody can pitch in and we can stop
by and get chicken or something else to bring back here to eat.

What are your plans for Sunday Dinner? Just share your menu or your plans in the comments.

Just don't share anything too yummy and delicious or I might be forced to reach through the computer modem and choke you....In the kindest, gentlest, most loving way, of course. ;-)

LYNNE AT LYNNE'S LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD has bestowed upon me the coveted title of "Schmoozer!"

According to Lynne, the dictionary gives this definition of "schmooze":
to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection. I suppose as much time as I spend on my computer blogging, reading blogs and commenting on blogs I'm about as big a "schmoozer" as they come.

Thanks for this award, Lynne! I do appreciate the honor and the recognition. :-)
These 12 hour days caring for a 12 week old baby are tough on an old fat girl. As much as I adore Emmy and love keeping her, by the end of the week I'm ready for a break.

But, I wouldn't trade anything for this time I get to spend with Emmy. These are precious, fleeting times in her life, and she changes so fast, right before my very eyes it seems. Thank you, Lord, for this time with my sweet grandbaby.
On Friday I made and canned a triple batch of MY HOMEMADE CHOW CHOW, which made 11½ pints. That's besides watching and caring for Emmy.

Saturday has been a day of rest for me. I haven't done much of anything besides sleep in, shower, and cook a quick supper of fried eggs on toast. I have managed to get around to a lot of my blogging buddies' blogs to read and comment, and I've been burning some music CD's for Lamar and a few friends.

I still have to study my Sunday School lesson and other than putting out my clothes for Sunday church, I don't any other plans for the evening. I'd like to get to sleep at a reasonable hour but my NightOwlism may rear its ugly head. I'm going to fight it and try to get to bed before midnight if at all possible.
I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Sunday, filled with beloved family and friends and good food.

May God bless you with all you need and enough to share.

Have a good week Diane

I'm actually planning to stick a small roast in the oven today. I have a lot to do today and that was the easiest thing I could come up with.

Twelve hour days are hard. I have Cameron here from 7 in the morning until around 3 or 4 in the afternoon and believe me, that's long enough. I think 12 hours every time he's here would do me in. I know for sure I'd not be cooking on those nights. LOL

I know you love it though, like I do. I'm trying to look down the road 7 months and imagine Cameron AND a newborn. Hahahaha.

Hope you have a nice week. Enjoy the baby - before you know it she won't be a baby any more. Can't wait to read your posts about a year from now. :-) You might want to stock up on vitamins! LOL

yummm...fried eggs on toast sounds good. We just returned from a mini-vacation and my cupboards are bare, but I have eggs and bread, so that just might be my Sunday dinner! Thanks for the idea!

Susie said...

Congrats on your Schmooze award :)
Those 12 hr days sound pretty tiring, but maybe Emmy will get into a better sleep pattern soon.
Dinner for us today is BBQ chicken, corn, sliced tomatoes from our garden and salad.
Have a wonderful week my dear friend!

Granny said...

I fixed a roast yesterday and was thinking about leftovers but there aren't any.

Chicken today. Maybe teriyaki over rice?

My internet was down for almost 24 hours. I was going through withdrawal.

Connie said...

Congrats on your Schmooz Award!!

Today it looks like I am on my own. The hubby wants computer time for his work...boring for me. Think I will take myself to lunch and do a little shopping.

Have a good week.

Linda said...

What a fun award Diane. I know I absolutley enjoy my visits with you. I think it would be lovely to get to sit and really visit.
You deserve a couple of days of complete rest. I know how much you love having that sweet baby with you, but there is no doubt that it is very tiring. You are such a sweet Mom to do all this for Jessica.
Put up your feet and have a restful Sunday!

PEA said...

Hello Mz Diane:-) Congratulations on your Schmoozer award!! We do love to schmooze don't we! lol Tonight for dinner it's corn on the cob, fresh from a local gardener...yum yum! Oh dear, 12 hours a day taking care of a baby sounds tiring to me but I know how you are enjoying every precious minute with your grandbaby. Once she gets a bit older and is more settled in her routine, you should find it easier:-)Hope you're able to relax today!!! xoxo

Lyndy said...

Congrats on your Schmooze award.

Glad you got to relax yesterday and hopefully today too.

Hugs, Lyndy

I look at you more as a "Great Friend" instead of a smoozer but that's just me ;)
Ate out all three meals today...I've had a really rough weekend, got some news I did not expect...I'll email you more later...but I think I deserved a cookin' break...McDonalds for breakfast...Max and Irmas for lunch and Tubby's Pizza for supper...ok so we ordered the pizza...I still did not have to cook!
Kiss sweet Emmy for me!

Andrea said...

We had scrambled eggs and toast - all this tired mommy could handle. We had Vacation Bible School last week and I'm still recovering.

I haven't had Chow Chow in YEARS. Good stuff. Thanks for the memory. :)

Have a good week!

Andre said... I tried to make turkey and dressing for the first time this weekend. Even when I followed my mom's recipe, it wound up being the WORST BATCH EVER.

I'm done with baking...

Myrna said...

Congratulations on the Schmooze award!

That egg on taost sounded good. Yesterday we had turkey melt sandwiches with melon. Today its pizza.

You make anything sound delicious. Everytime I read your Sunday dinner post I think, "I wish we were having that!"

Dawn said...

Well, it's Monday afternoon and I'm just now getting to the Sunday Dinner post. We grilled chicken breasts and had "Minnesota salad". More about that someday.

You know I see the kiddoes every day, and I could not believe how much Feisty changed in just one week. mazing.

Linda aka yellowroseli said...

Just getting around to your blog and it is Monday night. I know what you mean about the grands. I watch my three grands ages 1 1/2, 2 1/2 and 8 years. WOW they can really tire us girls out. God Bless you.

MightyMom said...

I came by and read your post. I'm just a bit at a loss for words right now. Give me a week or two to perk back up.

I had a great weekend - my sis and her little girl came up to visit for the weekend. All the cousins had a blast and we could hardly get them to settle down to go to bed.

Meals were easy - we picked up something for supper, Pillsbury cinnamon rolls for breakfast and hotdogs for lunch. Aren't I just a great hostess for my guests...

Belizegial said...

Hey Diane,

Because I haven't visited in awhile, I can reallly appreciate how fast Miss Emmy is growing. Do enjoy these moments with her and take good care of yourself at the same time.

Have a nice day,


Rachel said...

Congrats on your Schmoozer award!!

Onion and raccoon?? Oh, the poor raccoons! No, we just spoil them here and let them roam without them being in fear that they'll be cooked up! I have never eaten raccoon, not even as a kid. We ate squirrels, rabbits, and occasionally a groundhog. Some folks even ate possum (blech!), but we never did (Thank God!!).

Congratulations on the Schmoozer Award ... it's fun getting awards, and you are very deserving, Diane.
Hope things are going well with Emmy, and you are happy and well.
Take care, hugs, Meow xx
