"Another snowy Sunday!"

Woke up this morning to more snow but at least it was feeling a little warmer - it's pretty sad when you think 19 degrees is warm. Anyway I decide it was a good day for "comfort" food so
after a trip to the market I made cabbage soup - it is by far our favorite winter soup. I also had found a recipe for apple crisp using Idahoan Butter & Herb instant mashed potatoes...........I know strange but I had to try it! Poster will be my guinea pig! He'll eat it & I'll let you know later!

We decide this afternoon to take Liza to her favorite park for a walk - with it being so cold she hasn't been out for too many walks & the street were all salt again. It was hard work walking through the snow but she had a ball!

PS. Recipe for soup:

(1) medium cabbage shredded

(1) - large onion chopped

(3) - 14-1/2oz cans chicken broth

(3) – tblsp sugar

salt & pepper to taste

(1) – bay leaf

(2) – tblsp worcestershire sauce

(1)lb. ground beef or ground turkey

(2) 6oz cans tomato paste

1-1/4 tsp allspice

(2) 14oz cans baked beans

Brown meat and onion together in large (6-quart) pot. Add all other ingredients except for tomato paste and baked beans. Stir well, bring to boil and simmer for (1) hour until cabbage is cooked. Add tomato paste and baked beans and simmer for approximately another 1//2 hour.


  1. Only mother would think cabbage soap is comfort food.

    I say bring on a humongo bowl of ice cream. I'm sure my popster would agree!!!!!!!!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
