in Central Illinois. The sun is shining and the birds are singing. It is in the 30s now but to reach the upper 60s today and mid 70s tomorrow. If it actually hits 70 tomorrow it will be the first day to reach 70 degrees since November 17th of last year, the day of the tornado.
I was out with my daughter yesterday. We went to Kohl’s and then to Costco. I purchased a beautiful little cross to wear on my silver chain. I always shop the bargains at Costco. I have learned a lesson though, to be wary of buying a gigantic package of some things. For example, I bought this gigantic bag of chocolate chips and I ended up having to put a lot of chocolate chips in the freezer.
Today I am doing laundry and going to the store after I get finished. I also need to do some cleaning too.
I cooked baby lima beans and ham in the slow cooker yesterday while I was out running around. The first time that I have cooked beans in the crock pot. They were really good but I don’t think I will do it again because it takes too long. Earlier in the week I fixed a roast in the crock pot using Campbell’s slow cooker sauce.
This is the sauce I used and it was delicious! I fixed mashed potatoes and green beans with bacon and onion with it. My roast was fork tender and there was a nice bowlful of gravy. More leftovers for the freezer. I could eat leftovers from my freezer for a week and not have to cook anything. I can hardly bear to eat a TV dinner anymore. I think Marie Callender and Mr. Stauffer are mad at me.
Gotta run now to check my laundry. I will be by to visit later this morning/
Stay safe and be happy!!
