Beautiful day with blue skies and sunshine but 30's

It got really cold last night.  The coldest all winter so far.....16 F.  But it was nice when I took my walk this afternoon.  This morning  I made out my menu and my grocery list and went to Walmart.  I got home safely, no shooters and hopefully, I wasn't exposed to a killer bug.  Who knew that one would be taking their life in their hands to go to school or church or to the grocery store?!?!  I enjoy myself while I'm there as it is my only outing unless you count going out to the highway and filling the car with gas!  LOL!  Which I should do but I am too tired now.  I got some treasures for Valentine's Day from me to me!  BTW  Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Here's what I got for myself for Valentine's Day.............some sweets for the sweet! LOL!
 A little ladybug filled with sweet tiny flowers....................they're not roses either.........

 I also nabbed this beautiful houseplant.....I don't have too many............but they're good for keeping your indoor air clean.........
 and who could resist these beauties?  I am not de-stashing, I am enhancing my stash!
 and finally, I got some new reading glasses so I can do my cross-stitch!  If I find my other ones that's okay as then I will have a spare pair.  I don't use them for reading just cross-stitch.
When I got home I was starving so I made myself a sandwich on my homemade bread with peppers that had been cooked in olive oil and garlic.....yum!  Healthy and tasty too! 
I've been reading The Blue Zone Kitchen that I bought a few weeks ago.  The blue zones are the 5 or 6 areas in the world where people live the longest.  They attribute their longevity to their diet.  This book visits each area and has recipes and stories from them.
My menu this week and probably next includes recipes from that book, a few print offs and some from the Farmchicks cookbook.
Here's my menu:

1)  French Onion Slow Cooker Chicken (from Betsy Queen on my sidebar)  she said it was very good so I am going to try it. (printout)
2) Spinach, feta and beet salad (The Farmchicks in the Kitchen)
3) Margaret's Special Oatmeal Cookies (The Farmchicks in the Kitchen)
4) Veggie Cassoula (Blue Zone Kitchen)
5) Quick Greens and Onions  (Blue Zone Kitchen)
6) Minestrone (Blue Zone Kitchen)
7) Blueberry muffins (printout)
8) Avocado toast with egg (printout)
9) Blueberry Almond Overnight Oats (printout)

Last but not least I got this yarn and started this crocheted scarf.....love this yarn.......the pattern calls for a bulky or 2 worsted held together.  This yarn is super bulky but I got it anyway as I love the color and the feel of it....it's Lionbrand Hometown USA....100% acrylic and machine washable and dryable.  It's a free pattern and I will put it on my Ravelry projects page.  If you want it sooner let me know in the comments.  I don't have it in front of me now and I am too tired to get up and go get it! LOL!  After unloading all the groceries I even took my walk!  What was I thinking?  I am really toast now!
I'm sorry...no"tidbits"....I got a phone call and it is now almost 6:30!
Happy Trails!!!

  1. You had a busy day. I'm glad you got to Walmart and home safely with all of the "stuff" out there to terrify us right now. I have to admit, this virus has me really concerned, especially with Alex in Japan. However, I saw a news show today that said they estimate that 60% of us will have it before the outbreak is all said and done. Now that's scary.
    Your menu looks delicious. We had mashed potatoes and green beans with bacon when I made the chicken. So good!
    Take care and get some rest my friend. Happy Valentine's day from me to you!
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. Don't worry Betsy...remember who's in charge! LOL! We have no say in it whatsoever! Mashed potatoes and green beans with bacon sound like a perfect accompaniment to that meal! I will do the same! I hope you and Dennis had a very nice Valentine's Day.

  2. My daughter says that Wal-Mart's grocery pick-up has changed her life. I doubt if it's the germs thing she is referring to since she is a school teacher. But, like you, I kind of enjoy just going to look. And, to select my own bacon! :~)

    1. If I was still working the grocery pickup would be nice too. My daughter is also a teacher. It's pretty sad when Walmart is your social network! LOL!

  3. I'm getting here kind of late in the day, but -- Happy Valentine's Day, my friend!! I love the little ladybug planter, the flowers are so sweet. I, too, am thinking of making Betsy's French Onion Slow Cooker Chicken. I prefer shopping in person and checking out my own groceries, but it sure is a crazy world we live in to have to worry about the evils out there. Blessings to you! ♥

    1. Same to you! I know if I ordered online I would get home and they would have forgotten some important ingredient I needed for a recipe! LOL!

    1. LOL! Thank you,Leigh....up North when I would get home with all the "supplies" I would always say "let it snow"! It's a good feeling to have a full larder and plenty of handwork supplies!

  5. I guess I never put it together that the Parkland Massacre happened on Valentine's Day. I won't forget that now. My community leaders are voting our county to become a gun sanctuary. I am not sure what that means exactly, but the way it looks, it means that anything goes for gun owners. We already have people with guns strapped to them at McDonalds because anyone can "open carry" and the rest want to make sure we know they are all "concealed" carry at Walmart. Since we won't be able to infringe on the mentally ill or others stockpiling military grade firearms, I guess we can rename ourselves Tombstone.

    1. i didn't realize that at Parkland. There was just on eat a Walmart in Arkansas that's why I said that. No customer got hurt but 2 policeman did. I think it's crazy....what are these people afraid of and what are they so angry about? I feel like I'm in a different universe than the one I used to live in. I'm a firm believer that if it's my time it's my time....something sometime is going to take me out! I just pray it will be fast and I won't suffer. I'm a wimp! LOL!

  6. I'm tired after that day you had. And you took two walks?!? I wish I could say you inspire me (to do the same), but I CAN say I admire you. Love that interesting house plant. Very pretty and interesting.

  7. Just one walk unless you count walking around Walmart shopping which does tire me out too. I must admit though just 2 weeks ago I was huffing and puffing up the hills but not now....it's amazing how just a little exercise helps. I'm only walking around the block which takes 10 minutes. You can do it Becky, for 10 minutes! Your heart will thank you!
