More Food

I've tried a few more recipes in Healthy Cooking magazine--all are things I already have a recipe for, but they had some slight variations. First, I made the tuna casserole and really liked it. (I know most of you don't like tuna casserole, but that is something we eat occasionally.) John didn't like it--I'm not sure why! Then, I made the cheesy vegetable soup. It is very similar to Brenda's recipe, but just a little different and almost as good, I thought. Yesterday I made the crock-pot meat loaf. John is the only one who likes meat loaf, so I make it when I know Jessie won't be here to eat. She's very good about trying most things, but probably because of my own aversion to meat loaf, I don't press it upon her. And, meat loaf is something I don't really have a recipe for--I just throw it together. (Maybe that's why I don't like it--DUH!) Anyway, John and I both liked the meat loaf. I put it in the crock pot before church, but it seemed it wasn't quite done after 3 1/2 hours on low, so I put it in the oven for another 1/2 hour. And, it's a big recipe, so John will have enough for supper tonight while I'm tutoring and Jessie is working.

And, I just made the spiced apple tea (very good) and forgot to mention earlier that I made the double-chip pumpkin muffins. I didn't have the cinnamon chips, but I substituted toffee bits. It's a huge recipe, so I froze most of them for Bible study at my house this week. I'm also going to try the makeover apple bread.

This past Saturday was the first Show Choir competition of the season. Norris got second in class B. It was quite respectable since it is practically impossible to beat Grand Island Northwest. They are the same size as Norris, but they always go over the top with their Show Choir. The next competition is the 31st at the Lied.

A fun thing for me at the competition was visiting with Mary Zimmer, a Norris alum who graduated with Annie, I think. She is now the music director at Pius and she just happened to sit down by us. It was fun to catch up with her and her family.

I'm going to add another "f" word to my list--feeding birds! (I'm trying to give some integrity to "f" words!) I just counted 10 goldfinches either in the tree or at the feeders. I want to thank Jeremy for thinking of me at Thanksgiving time and taking the time to go to the Wild Bird store and buy me a bucket of REALLY NICE bird seed. I had been neglecting the birds and he was feeling sorry for both them and me. THANKS, JEREMY. Your gift has been much appreciated.

This is getting kind of long. If I don't learn how to do pictures SOON, I'll probably lose all my blog readers!

Have a great day!
