  • November 9th Dinner Post

    Good Morning!

    It is sunny this morning with the high of 64 and the low of 45. Heading into some snow/rain fun come this Friday and I knew it was coming but still not excited about it.

    I am making hamburger gravy over mashed potatoes, green beans, pickled beets and chocolate mousse for dinner.

    What are you making tonight?
    Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
    He drew a circle that shut me out.
    But love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in.

    Another warmish day but I got a bit more done than previous days. The airconditioning worked again so hopefully it will keep working while we live in this house. Cooler forecast for tomorrow so I hope to have more energy than I have for the past week. We have some outdoor garden shelving to put up in our courtyard so I can start off some plants to take with us. Quarantine laws in South Australia meant that I couldn't bring plants that I had grown in our old house. I've been buying plants from the local Salvation Army opshop... someone has been donating pots contains 3 or 4 different succulents and I've been splitting them up into larger pots. They are growing very well. A few months ago I bought some "cuttings" of succulents from a seller on eBay. It was something like 50 different cuttings for $8 so I figured I couldn't lose much. When they arrived I was disappointed that some of the so-called cuttings were no more than an inch long and the only way I could plant them was with tweezers. Blow me down, every one of those little pieces grew into healthy, good-sized plants. I'm ready to buy some more different ones now.

    Dinner for John tonight was the second lamb chop, boiled potato, fried onion and peas. My dinner was just to find something in the fridge... a half serve of noodles with bolognaise sauce, the remaining salad leaves, baby tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts. Now I'm having a hot chocolate to take my medication before bed.

      Yesterday for dinner I made a 13x9 pan full of chicken and dumplings. It was quite tasty, and I thought 'great, I don't have to cook tonight - wrong". I put it on the counter to cool off before putting it away in the fridge except I forgot to do that when I turned the lights off. I found it still on the counter this morning so out it went into the trash. I will have to dig something out that I have all the ingredients for. I'm not going to the grocery store until Friday. Something will pop up. It could even be breakfast for dinner because I have plenty of eggs and potatoes. Talk about a waste of food. Three quarters of the dish was still left.

          It’s been a beautiful but chilly day, starting with pretty heavy frost this morning. I did go get my tire pressures checked out, got my mail hold order done and got cash from the ATM at the bank, then came home and made sure I had plenty of water bottles and Kleenex in the car. The hardest thing I did was resetting the clock in the car, it’s ridiculous how complicated that clock is to set!

          I’m going to make some Buffalo wings and some noodles and veggies tonight.​

            Don't know what kind of car you have, but it really is not hard to change time in your car. I just go to settings / set up, then go to clock , and adjust the time , go back to home and you are done.
            Or check your car manual, should you still have it, or much easier yet, just go to you tube.

              I have a 2015 Subaru Forester and changing the time IS a pain. It’s all done through 3 paddles on my steering wheel and you have to work through a few different screens on the display on the dash. I have photocopies of the instructions from the owners manual in my center console and on my phone and I use them every time I set the clock. I also have the owners manual in there too. I’m quite tech savvy; I’ve worked with computers, WiFi, alarm systems, smart appliances etc. and it’s still a pain to do that clock.

                That sounds much more difficult then my car. I have a 2017 KIA optima , and like I already posted all I do is punch settings, clock, adjust and go back to home. I really don't like my car, it's nice, 4 door and I only have 18,000 miles on it. I absolutely hate not having a regular key to start the car, I hate the fob or whatever it is called. I cannot tell you how often I have parked the car and left the car or tried to without turning it off, only to close the door and get the sound to let me know I didn't turn the ignition off. I hate it. The only thing I love about the car is the back up camera, now that one is wonderful.
                I have a friend who also has a keyless car, she parked her car, forgot to turn the car off , went into her meeting, a couple of hours later came back out to her car and realized her car was still running, I am surprised nobody took off in her car.

                  When I had my car serviced last month they gave me a loaner that had the keyless starter/fob. I kind of liked the car but I sure didn’t like that feature. It also had the automatic engine shutoff when stopped, I hated that. I’ll keep my Subaru, it only has 32,000 miles on it right now.
