the temp right now is 23 degrees and the countdown to spring is 70 days. The side streets here in town are unplowed and it is treacherous going. But I did make it to the stores for the first time in 7 days. My cabin fever is temporarily halted.
I made it to the pharmacy for prescriptions and then to a couple of the grocery stores for restocking. I still forgot to get baloney!! No milk or bananas in Krogers. In fact there were signs posted all through the store about how their trucks couldn’t get here from Indianapolis! Schnucks had milk and bananas but I still forgot the baloney.
I was able to get necessary ingredients for chili which was important. When I made chili on the weekend I was almost out of chili powder and my chili was way too bland. Ground round was on sale for $4.79 a pound but you had to buy it in a big package to get the sale price. I plunged right in and bought an almost 5 lb pkg and now I am browning it off in a big pot and will separate it and freeze to have ready for cooking. I would have saved part of it for a meat loaf since Debbie’s looked so good yesterday but I decided I was too lazy to do that. I also bought a big chicken to cook on the weekend.
I will be late with my post again tomorrow as I have 2 doctor appointments. And then a 3rd doctor appointment next Tuesday. Then I hope that is it for a few weeks.
Stay safe and be happy!!
