whew! busy weekend

Yes, it was a busy weekend, but a good one.

I got to spend the day Saturday with Rhett and Ashlynn. Angela had an out-of-town funeral to attend (her cousin passed away) so I was able to give R & A some quality Grams time. We played this little piggy went to market (they love it!) and ride-a-horsey (this is bouncing on my foot, not riding on my back), as well as singing about twinkle twinkle little star and the wheels on the bus going round and round. They're so much fun.

And the grand-dogs got a bit of attention too. Elizabeth and David celebrated their first anniversary (does it seem possible???), so I helped on the feeding duties while they were gone. Well, not the whole weekend, but a couple of times anyway. Lucy has grown by leaps and bounds...really, leaps and bounds. I would say they were so glad to see me, but I think it was more a matter of them being happy for feeding time!

I also went into my Susie Homemaker role, and had John and Bonnie over for lunch. They may be on to me now, this is the second time in a row they've been over that I've tried a new recipe on them. This one was a meatloaf sent by Kraft Foods. I'm on their mailing list and get newsletters every week or two, filled with mouth-watering pictures. Anyhow, meatloaf just conjured up warmth and comfort. I've not had a definite recipe, and haven't made it in ages, so thought I'd give it a try. Results? It was good, and I will probably make it again. Though I won't need to anytime soon, it made enough that I froze about 3 or 4 individual servings. J & B seemed to like it fine. Nolene and Joe were invited too, but couldn't make it...or maybe they had their suspicions I'd be experimenting again! What was the first new-to-me recipe I made for them, you ask? It was a roast in the crock pot, with sweet potatoes, and came out quite good. The recipe I linked to is very similar, just couldn't find the web link for the exact one I used.

That's it for now, it's almost time to be off to work. Have a good week, all.

I sure am sorry I could not
attend and enjoy that meat loaf
But I had an previous engagement
that I just had to attend to
It would appear that it was well appreciated.
Do you know that your older sister,you know the well educated one
is about to celebrate 50 wonderful years of wedded bliss. I think that is in may.
Take care

yummm! I love meatloaf and have made it a few times to only be dissapointed. My mom died in '99 when I was 24 and that is one recipe I regret not calling her and asking her for in those early years of being a newlywed.

I've cut and pasted and will print this one out from Kraft Foods and give it a try as I have not given up on having a GOOD meatloaf for supper ;)

Thanks for sharing!
Love from Texas! bingo~bonnie
