A Few Things On Next Week's Agenda

Hi there everyone. Hope you are having a good evening and your week-end will be a fun one. Can you believe March is just around the corner....whew time does fly by. I think I'm going through "Winter Fatigue" (that would be "just getting tired of the winter blahs") although JP said it was just "Cabin Fever" either way, I am looking forward to Spring and walking outside and getting some fresh air. Lately it has been way too cold and snowy for me or Kylie. I have noticed it is getting lighter and lighter at 5:00....yay...pretty soon we can start walking again.

I was looking at Pinterest and saw some things I would like to try...that's always a fun thing for me to do. Don't these sandwiches look really good below....yum. I think the recipe said a slice of toast, with mayo, tomatoes and avocado with melted cheese....mmm. Sounds good to me.

Here are two drinks that I might try....they sound so refreshing don't they? If they worked and did the things could be worth it. I do have some frozen lemon and mint ice cubes in the freezer. Need to get some ginger....maybe I could use a tsp of ginger might work. Looks like the drink below could be made tomorrow for breakfast. I have all the ingredients. Maybe I could turn it into a smoothie???

These two beautiful cards....I just love. I am going to a Stampin' Up Camp on Sunday. So I know for sure, one of my purchases will be this lovely butterfly. So pretty. Oh, there are a few stamps I will be buying also. Maybe the set on these two cards.
I saw this cake sounded delish. The cake is baked in a cast iron that is interesting to me. I printed the recipe if it works I will surely put it on my blog. I think it is diabetes worthy...I will just cut down on the sugar, like from a cup to 1/2 cup. If I can handle it and not get tempted....and maybe two bites at a time, leaving the rest for JP.
Doesn't this little dish look yummy.....grilled tomatoes on a bed of spinach, a poached egg and grilled portobella mushroom....nice breakfast, lunch or dinner right????

So there you have it....some cards, drinks, desserts and food I plan on making this next week. As for soups.....I have a recipe for Chinese Meatball soup and Basil Tomato Soup and Turkey Meatballs.....sound good??? A few other recipes I need to try...Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken and Eggs baked in Portobello Mushrooms. I may also try a recipe that I have not made in a very long time, Tuna Fish Casserole. JP will be eating well this next week, don't 'cha think???

Time to close and go do some wash and ride the bike. I hope you liked my plans for this next week.....maybe this will help me get past the "Winter Fatigue" phase.

Have a good night and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise

Oh yum, I like mashing avocado on toast. The tomato and cheese sound like delicious additions.

Several of those recipes look really good. My daughter makes that second "drink" quite often for herself and her girls.
That cake in the cast iron skillet looks good and like it would be fun to try, too.
Have fun at your stamping up party. Those are cute cards.
Hope you have a great rest of the weekend, Louise....and, as always, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment. xo Diana

Hi Diana. I made that second drink was really good, turned it into a smoothie. JP had some too and really liked it. Bought some cocoa today to make that cast iron skillet chocolate cake....Yes, I had fun at the stampin up party, bought a few things. Will probably post the cards and basket tomorrow.

Wow, those cards are beautiful and if it's okay I will case them when my stamps and die come in. The dishes sound good too. I have been making a lot of the things in my new cookbooks. I love to try new recipes and just made one by the Pioneer Woman called Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce. It was delicious and you can probably find it online at The name doesn't sound good but it was yummy.

Hi Louise! thank you so much for your kind words :) It's nice to be welcomed back! This has been a rough winter but it's been fun. I hope JP knows what a lucky guy he is ;) Take care and thank you again!

Hi Brenda....oh by all means case those cards....I am planning on doing so too. I shall have to try that pasta and tomato cream, sounds good. Anything pasta is good.

Hi Angela you are welcome. Yeah, winters are always tough...I think you have had way more snow then we have...that would make it tough. JP takes me for granted at times....he's spoiled I guess.

Don't mind me....just thought a comment would be fun plus I want to see how many hoops you must jump through to leave a comment on my blog....Cheers!!! I know for one thing I AM NOT A ROBOT!!!!
