Muggy and Meatless Monday

I cannot imagine how hot and humid it is going to be when all this rain moves out and the sun appears.  Whoa Nellie....get ready to suffocate! LOL!  Meanwhile, I've been frantically busily working on giraffe #1 and I made some more progress today............
 The ears and lining got made......
 and sewed together...........
 and sewed on the giraffe!  YAY!

 I made a broccoli, garlic and feta pasta dish for supper.  I roasted the broccoli...........
 and used whole wheat pasta............
 I'll post the recipe tomorrow.  This is the second time I've made it and it is delicious, healthy, fairly easy, and budget friendly.  I'm trying "meatless Monday" and eating more vegan dishes.
Oh, yesterday, even though my Sunday's are RnR days, I did clean my Keurig and wow what a difference it made!  I used to clean my Mr. Coffee monthly but hadn't cleaned my Keurig since I got it last year.  It was starting to get real sluggish.  I had pinned instructions on Pinterest and it's on my cleaning board if anyone wants it.  I had about 3 but only kept the best one.  I did have to run the water through twice though which on mine was 2 fill ups of the water reservoir.  Just an F.Y.I in case you have a Keurig and you haven't cleaned yours either.  It's well worth's like having a brand new Keurig! 


  1. Oh, I love your's shaping up my friend! We need to clean our coffee pot...thanks for reminding me! Hugs, Diane

  2. 1. Mr. Giraffe is looking so cute.

    2. We don't do meatless Monday, but we do a light meal on Mondays and we are trying to use up food in the fridge and freezer rather spending money needlessly.

    3. My daughter just made a veggie pasta dish that she plans to make for us - healthy and inexpensive.

  3. Serious cuteness going on here.
    From the giraffe, to your title...

    We've been trying to implement meatless Mondays around here too... although we are not always successful.
    Last Mon. I made a corn casserole... it was delish!!

    Hope you don't get too bogged down with humidity.
    Send some moisture our way !

    Happy wishes...


  4. Looking forward to seeing your finished giraffe and the yummy recipe!

  5. That is the cutest giraffe! Food looks great too:)
