Snow

100_5075

We are getting snow today.  It started out as rain, changed to sleet and now it is all snow.  Predictions are 4-6 in.  We’ll see.  Anyway, it looks pretty coming down. 

Tonights menu is meatloaf, cheesy pototoes, home canned green beans and fresh rolls.  The recipe I use for the meatloaf is:

2 lb hamburger, 2 tbsp bbq sauce, 1 cup milk, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 sleeve crackers crushed, 1 egg, 1/2 cup chopped onion, salt and pepper to taste.  Bake for 1 hr 15 min at 400 degrees.  Topping for meatloaf- l cup ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar. 

Cheesy Potatoes:

In a casserole dish, layer sliced potatoes, chopped onions, salt, pepper, sprinkle on 1 tbsp flour, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded mozzarella–repeat layers pour 1 cup milk over the entire dish and bake at 400 degrees for 45 min or until pototoes are done.

It certainly will smell good in your home while these are baking.  Our rolls are baking as I type.  I think I am getting hungry.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Our Mantle Nativity

100_4916

This little Nativity set is the star attraction on our mantle during Christmas.  It is already sitting in its place of honor.  It has been to cold too go to the building to get out our other decorations but we did venture out to get the Nativity.  Hopefully, it will warm up some so we can get the other stuff down soon.  Very cold here last night.  Acutual temperature 7 degrees with a wind chill of about -5.  Our water is frozen.  So sad.  Hubby thought he had fixed every little crack that the wind could get into but I guess we were wrong.  Remember last year, our bathroom water was frozen for about 1 1/2 months.  We were hoping to avoid that this year.  Well, this morning all the water is frozen, nothing coming into the house anywhere.  Definitely not good.  Hubby is going to work on it this evening as soon as he gets in.  Pray it will not be too hard to get it running again.  Then I guess we will just have to keep a small trinkle running at night to keep it from freezing again.  I am so grateful I went up yesterday to the cellar and covered up our pototoes and our canned green beans with quilts.  Hopefully they are in good shape.  Last year they froze in the cellar.  I do not want a repeat of that.  The green beans are closest to the door so I guess there must be some wind that gets in at the door.  Oh well, this is all part of winter, I know.  I can’t say I like it though.

I do have good news.  A local bakery, The Bread Basket, has graciously agreed to display my aprons for sale.   I am so excited!!!!!  I took her 9 aprons this morning.  I pray they sell quickly and that perhaps I could bring her more.  This would be so much better than trying to sell them myself.   All in God’s hands. 

Well, I have things to get done-not laundry though.  Can’t do laundry without water.  Stay warm and God bless.
