Anybody care to take a wild guess what I'm cooking for Sunday Dinner this week?
If you took your cue from the graphic and said homemade meatballs and gravy, you'd be absolutely correct. I'll make the meatballs tonight and make the gravy tomorrow so it won't taste leftover and warmed up. I'm also going to make some jasmine rice to serve with the meatballs and gravy.
I've been craving carrots so I'm going to peel and slice some carrots and then cook them with some water, butter and a little sugar. I'll do that tomorrow when we get home from church.
I saw some bags of sauerkraut in the refrigerated section at Wal*mart, located conveniently near the hot dogs, so I decided to fix some weinies and kraut as well. I'll cook the rice, carrots and heat the weinies and kraut after I get home from church.
My menu for Sunday Dinner this week: Homemade meatballs and gravy, jasmine rice, candied carrots and weinies and kraut. How's that for a mixed bag?
What's on the menu for your Sunday Dinner? Share your plans/menu if you'd like in the comments.Cecil, Sue, Lamar and I spent a few hours with Jessica, Jason and Emmy at their place last week and I took some pictures.
Sue with Emmy and her bouquet.
a decent ponytail. Ain't she cute?And this pic is just weird. Look at Abby
the cat. Emmy's bouquet makes her
look like she has some kind of really
odd Easter bonnet!Who could resist that smile?
Not this Grandma!Note that Emmy's shirt says, "Spring Fever!"
I guess I'll unhook my ailing desktop computer and try to get together with my brother in law Johnny to see what needs to be done with it. I've done all I know to do with it besides beat the demons out of it, so I guess it's time to let somebody who knows what they're doing get ahold of it.
Once I get it unhooked I'll have to load the software for my printer onto my laptop and see if I can get it going. I have some things I need to print and I need to do it fairly soon.One thing that I've been spending some time on this week are these crocheted dish cloths. I didn't use a pattern for these. I just made up the pattern as I went along. It takes me about 1.5 hours to make a dishcloth, so some evenings I can make 2 while I watch TV.
This is simple single crochet with a
back loops only to give it a ribbed effect.
shell border around it. Not my favorite
color combination, but hey, it's a
dishrag folks, not a fashion sweater.I really like this ombre color variation.
This is half double with ribbing and
the shell border is the same color.And this is a dishcloth in progress
in half double crochet.
Barb has A REALLY NICE DISHCLOTH PATTERN posted on her blog and I want to make it next, but first I have to get my printer going so I can print off the pattern. Otherwise I'll have to crochet in front of the computer with Barb's blog open on it so I can keep up with the pattern.
So that's yet another reason to quit procrastinating and work on my computer issues. Next week, hopefully.....Now I have to go make meatballs for Sunday Dinner, but I want to leave you with this pic of Cecil getting a hug from Emmy as we were leaving last week.As a bonus for visiting us here at Diane's Place you get an Emmy hug, and as a special treat, with each Emmy hug you also get free Emmy sugars! Get yours while they last!
(Shout out to my dear SisterFriend, GREENEYES! Hope you enjoy the Emmy hugs and sugars, and hope you and your Princess are doing well and Spring finds you soon. Don't be too envious of our sunshine and shirt sleeve weather. ;-)
Have a blessed Sunday. May God meet all your needs and may you have enough to share is my prayer for all my dear family and friends.
