had some other guy's groceries delivered, that was a fun mess especially because it happened right around the time my brother said he would be here from Boston for lunch. Luckily he was late. I thought my dad was gonna burst a gasket. We are the perfect demographic for home delivery between my mom and me not being able to walk the grocery store and my dad has been having so much pain from surgery, shopping is hard for him. But they hate it and now this may be the final nail in the coffin. I know my dad hates it because he can't impulse shop, he buys everything he sees. Last time he came home with 5 loaves of different breads. He buys all his diabetic no no's. I told him order his "bad food" online, I don't care but at least have it delivered for $6 rather than be in pain running there 3 times a week. After today (our food was found on the truck with a few things missing), he was ranting how this is just a money making scam. Yeah, they personally gather your groceries, send a guy out spending gas with them who then carries them into your kitchen for six whole dollars. They're making money hand over fist. Smacks head, sigh.

Bathroom clean, laundry caught up, fridge all cleaned out.
More cleaning to do and cut up cheese and lots of veggies for tomorrow
Bernice, I keep seeing adds on Pinterest for shoes called Tiesks.......the say they expand to the size of your foot. They look like ballet shoes. I saw you had a thread about shoes for your mom. Sorry I should look for the right thread but don't want to take the time right now.i don't know anything about them or if you have heard of them.
Also on another thread and I don't remember which one spirit deer asked the difference in presses for corn and flour tortillas. I was looking on Amazon at electric press for flour tortillas and it said you had to press flour tortillas with a warm press to keep them from shrinking back down. So now that has me thinking of heating my baking stone and trying to roll them out on that and maybe I can get them a decent size. I am not ready to shell out 70 some odd dollars plus tax and shipping for an electric tortilla press......just afraid I will be disappointed in the results produced and another small appliance to store.

Hey everybody! I've read through all the posts and we've got some busy people here.
Yesterday was a day of errands that we didn't finish till well into the afternoon, then this a.m. I was at Kroger before 8 a.m. to avoid the crowds. I've made a carrot cake and lemon squares and talked on the phone to my college roomie for over 2 hours. Now I need to check my list and get busy for tomorrow. Our DS, DD, DD's boyfriend, and DH's sister will be here for Easter dinner late afternoon so after church I'll bake the ham, some scalloped potatoes, pineapple casserole, and rolls while the veggies cook on the stove.
1) Errands DONE
2) Bake lemon squares and carrot cake DONE
3) Clean downstairs bathroom
4) Finish decorating dining room table
5) Clean stairs
6) Vacuum rugs
7) Give myself a manicure
Have a good Easter eve.

Pinetree, our moose are dying off and no one can figure out why. We haven't seen one now in several years, and that one was laying in a ditch dying. It was sad.
TDN, that's interesting about using a warm press. I hadn't heard of that before.
Husby is watching a show about foods made with bacon and talking about trying the burger at My Sister's Place that's served with peanut butter, since they were talking on the show about meats served with peanut butter that Elvis used to eat. Husby said he supposed he could try the peanut butter burger at My Sister's Place sometime. Me, being more practical, offered to smear some peanut butter on the next burger he eats at home. We don't eat out that often, so why try something like that and then find out he doesn't like it after paying a lot for it, when he can try one bite and home and decide if it's worth having the restaurant version?
Now we're going to have to drive back up to Grand Marais. Where's the key to the truck?

ILC, I'M coming for dinner K? I love carrot cakeand pineapple and a big hunk of ham, and now I have to go look up the pineapple casserole!!
Making the slaw tomorrow!
SD, No, I hads no idea the moose are in trouble, that happens down here with the deer and elk, then its ok. for awhile they thought it was from ticks or mosqutos, spelling, that really sad. Have fun on you peanut butter hamburger trip!! lol

wow missed you all!! I drug DH out to Coney Island to test his skills. He crutched to the door and paid the check at the other end. I made him open the doors on crutches and get out to the car in the 2nd over handicapped spot. It wore him out but he did it. Stoopid thinner make you week. Or maybe its because he ate like a horse.
I am seriously thinking about skipping Easter shopping. I have meatballs,noodles and creme sauce,canned pineapple,Grands biscuits and SO many cake and brownie mixes. I honestly dont want to cook or eat a ham. Now to sell Dh on the idea of saving $40. to shop.
Hunty is well. I let him roam the yard alone. His neck is a bit red but I am watching the area. They want it to breath but I could get into covering it up soon. He still shakes at the other dogs. This will take a bit.
Dmom is visiting w/ Dbro and family which I am happy about because my boat is full.

Oh I assumed it was Ice cream salad. Pineapples,marachino cherries,whipped creme frozen. Supposed to have mayo-but eww no. Never heard of it hot like that esp. w/ cheese and pineapple together. hmmm??
SD-I figured it was a baby moose but the angle was >>?
Settled on creamed alfredo meatballs ove egg noodles w/ a few sides and maybe brownies. Keeping things semi stress free this holiday. No dressing up,no baskets,no pictures,no kids,no decor,just us. Thankful and quiet. Decided to keep th $40. extra for ham and trimmings I have no freezer space for this year.

Happy Easter. Last Easter I was in the hospital, so this day is marvelous. Got news yesterday that my DD and her family may be moving back to Texas. Praying. Going to DS's house for lunch today with his family. Broccoli casserole ready to bake and frosting the carrot cake. My son is preaching this morning since their regular minister had a death in the family. My DS is a youth minister. Taking Dmom with us. That's going to be about it today.

Going to see if Dh wants to go on a drive. I may even encourage him to drive.
Happy Easter everyone.
