Today is a rainy day here in Floyd. It was raining last night when we went to bed and still raining this morning when we got up. I think it is supposed to rain most of the day. Julie and Grace have been watching a young neighbor boy occasionally. He will be coming over today while his parents go to a funeral. I think it is good experience for them and gives them a little spending money of their own.
I made several new recipes this week. The first one was kielbasa with cabbage and noodles. It was very good. Last night we got really adventurous and made mexican rice with homemade flour tortillas. I sauted kielbasa, onions, garlic and mushrooms to serve with the rice and tortillas. We ate our supper in the living room while watching a family movie. The girls helped me with the tortillas. There really were a lot of fun to make. A little time consuming but fun. We will definitely be making them and the rice again.
Well, I wanted to share the recipes with you all. We will be having homemade pizza for supper tonight using the pizza dough recipe I used last time. I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
I found this recipe at Johnsonville Sausage. I altered it a little to fit our taste.
5 cups cabbage,-chopped, 1 onion-diced, 1/4 cup butter, 1 package kielbasa chopped, small amount of jalapena pepper-chopped, 1 clove garlic-minced, 1 cup sliced mushrooms, 4 cups egg noodles cooked according to package directions. In a large skillet saute cabbage, onion, pepper and garlic. Add the kielbasa, noodles, salt and pepper. Cook until heated through.
Today we are getting back into the swing of school. We had too many errands yesterday to start. We also visited some with the Horn’s yesterday. For Christmas, the Horn girls had received a kit from Wal-Mart to make a little girl apron and a little doll apron. I took some interfacing over and Vicki and I traced out the pattern. So I now have a little doll apron pattern to make. I want to make a mother, daughter, and doll apron to match.
Temperatures here are much nicer than they have been however yesterday morning was pretty cold. Temperature yesterday was 14 when we got up but it did warm up nicely with lots of sunshine. Cloudy today though, of course, because I am home and could hang our clothes on the line today. Oh well, thats how it goes. Hubby worked on getting some more wood yesterday while the girls and I ran errands.
Tonights menu is something I really don’t have a name for. I brown hamburger meat, add onions, cabbage, and potatoes. The options are limitless as to what you can add. I sometimes add fresh peppers, zucchini, squash, mushrooms. I like fresh baked cornbread with it. I got some cushaw from the freezer this morning. I think I will make a pie for dessert.
