Sunday 1-24-2016

Dinner tonight is Salmon Patties, Potatoes & Carrots, Green Beans & Onions, and a Vegetable/Lima Bean Blend with a couple of Pickled Beets on the side. 

Afterwards I had enough to package up four plates for meals on other days this coming week. 

Today I warmed up both cars up to make sure they will start up this week and I brushed the snow off both of them. Since it was 20° last night we let our cats Big Kitty & Mozzie sleep inside the house. They were so content.  :)

We've stayed home this weekend due to the weather. We also stayed home several days this past week due to a holiday and weather again. As a result, my gas tank, which I filled early in the week is still sitting on full. Staying home does have its rewards. :)

  1. The full tank of gas is your silver lining. I have a friend who always reminds me, when I'm lamenting something bad has happened -- there is a silver lining to every cloud.

    I love those individually sectioned plates. I'm guessing they have lids which fit snugly and you can stack them in the fridge?

    have a great week!

    1. Yes, that is my silver lining, Lili. I like that. :)

      Yes, the lids fit snugly on those plates and I have them stored in the fridge as people want them. We gathered them up over the years here and there.

      I hope you have a great week too!

  2. It sounds so cold where you are Belinda.

    The meal you made sounds really nice. We haven't had salmon patties in a while, so I will put them on the menu for one night this week. We will have them with salad as it is still warm here. I love the plates you put the leftovers in, even better if they stack.

    I love staying home too to save money. It saves on fuel, food and time if I make do with what I have at home. I think I had about five no spend days last week, so definitely a bonus :)

    Have a great day,


    1. Wow, Tania, five no spend days in one week is great! Way to to!

  3. Your dinner looks yummy. I made salmon patties earlier in the week.
    Great minds think alike. Thank you for letting Big kitty and Mozzie
    sleep in the house :) The weather is just so crazy animals and people are having a hard time this winter.

    1. Thank you, Patti. :)

      We let the cats in tonight too as it is cold again. We did this last winter too. It's just too cold out there for them.

      I hope you ahve a great week. :)

  4. 62* in West TN today on Monday, which is nice. Hope you have warmed up in East TN. Your meal with its 4-leftover meals look good. Been to Chattanooga lately? Whenever you head that way, remember that if you turn on exit to East Ridge, you pass the back of where I lived in the late 1960's. :)

    1. Such nice weather!! It was a really nice day here too, although I am not sure what the temperature got up to today as I was inside all day. We've been to Chattanooga recently, but I can't remember when. We go to Ooltewah several times a month. I really like it as it is close to Chattanooga. I know exactly where you are talking about in East Ridge. We don't go there very often, but I know where it is. My ex used to work there as an EMT/paramedic. Such a small world. :)

  5. I taught at what was Lakeview High School in GA and shopped at Kroger in Ooltewah. Many friends in GA and West TN. DH drove twice daily through Chickamauga Battlefield to his elementary school. Memories.

    1. How neat, Anna. :) Ooltewah has a Publix now and a Super Walmart. We love it there, they have a great stand alone produce stand that sells me red peppers for 50¢ sometimes.
