Hi all! I'm still here and kicking (not to high though). Welcome to all my new follower's....some day my posts might be more exciting...lol. No picture's today either so if you stay with me, thanks!!
My neck and back are still giving me fits. Still seeing my chiropractor. I sure feel better after my treatments but then the pain usually comes right back. I think alot has to do with how I am holding my neck while stitching so I have to remember to change that when I'm doing it.
My resolution of not shopping for things that I don't need didn't last which I knew it wouldn't but I have definately cut back! Still don't know about the school thing, class doesn't start until May so I still have some time. I can't get financial aid supposingly because the classroom time is short and it's not that big of a loan....they don't give out small loans?? LOL! So anyway, time will tell on that one. Still trying to work on decluttering the basement. Put a bunch of stuff on Craigslist and only 2 things sold. I would put some of it on here but alot of it is big items and the shipping would just be way to expensive.
I made supper the other nite (it doesn't happen very often at all!!) and I tried a new recipe and it was soooo good so I'm sure I will be making it again. And it was so easy and it stays in the crock pot all day so that was a big plus! Here is the recipe for those of you that would like to try it. It's out of the "Fix it and Forget it" cookbook and the recipe is by Andrea O'Neil.
2 1/2 lbs. ground beef
half of an 8 oz jar salsa
1 pkg. dry taco seasoning, divided
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
12 oz pkg shredded mexican mix cheese
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Combine all ingredients, except half of the taco seasoning. Mix well. Shape into a loaf and place in slow cooker. Sprinkle with remaining taco seasoning. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours.
Pretty easy huh? Trust me, for one that doesn't cook, it was easy!! LOL!
I have really been busy stitching away, I can't keep up with eBay so that is really good but like I said earlier, it's taking a toll on my neck. I have also been working on a swap that I'm in. I'm just about done with that.
It's been really cold here today. This morning we were at 8 below and we never made it out of the single digits for a high plus we got about 8 new inches of snow overnight. It's getting really hard to shovel the snow as there isn't anyplace for it to go anymore. The piles are so high on the edges of the driveway now. Can't even use the snowblower for that same reason...it's a little one and it just won't blow the snow over those mounds.
Well I think that's it for me. Sorry I didn't have any picture's this time. Hopefully next time I will have something to show! Hope you all stay safe and warm during this Season!!
