I got up at 2:30 a.m. this morning so I am fading fast now at 5:30 p.m. But I was able to get some priorities done today. I paid a few bills, did some laundry, cleaned the frig and went grocery shopping. I got all the ingredients for corned beef and cabbage for St, Patty's Day! My favorite meal in the whole wide world! There's the corned beef, cabbage, carrots, rutabaga, turnips and potaoes....yummo!
I researched traditional Irish desserts and found an apple cake recipe with custard sauce so that is what I am making for dessert. I'm Irish but I don't have a big sweet tooth and I don't remember having many desserts growing up. But I do like a little something with a cup of tea in the evening. The recipe only called for 4 apples but the bag of apples was cheaper than buying 4 individually!
The great thing about getting up so early was that I was able to get the kitchen cleaned up and the frig cleaned before I went to the store. It's so nice to be able to put things away knowing where it all is and that you've rid the area of 'past their prime' foods. It gives you more room for one thing!
I always mean to do that but it doesn't always happen.....today it did and I was a happy camper!
Oh!!! News alert! News alert! Did you know that Walmart now carries organic meat? No organic chickens yet but they had all cuts of beef...grass fed and lamb and there might have been some pork there too. I was so excited! I just got a pound of hamburger as I'm trying to clear out the freezer. I was thinking I was going to have to order online and I still might. The Butcher Box has all organic and bone in chicken parts and whole chickens and grass fed organic meat and wild caught fish of all kinds. I haven't checked the price yet but it's a subscription service.
I got all the groceries put away and did some de-cluttering and tonight I'm going to do some cross stitch. What are you up to tonight? I try to watch a movie on Friday nights. Last week I watched a favorite of mine.....The Magic or Ordinary Days......it's on You Tube.
