Spent the middle of the day out running around. Doc visit, shopping for some needed household items and groceries. Got it all shopped, schlepped in, and put away. Whew!
Then, I heard one of those potatoes I baked yesterday calling my name. Of course, what it wanted was to be glooked all up nice with some margarine, chopped ham, broccoli, cauliflower, a drizzle of Ranch dressing and a sprinkle of Mexican four cheeses, and for me to eat it. Oh, the nums!
Of course, now that I’ve eaten it all, I remembered I have two little jars of mushrooms still sitting in the pantry . . . . drat! Well, I still have two potatoes left, and one of those jars is about right for two potatoes. I also got some deli chicken, so I can have the next one with chicken, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, cheese, and maybe some chopped black olives . . . and a bigger drizzle of Ranch dressing . . . Now, there’s a nice thought.
You’ll notice I make my baked potatoes in a soup bowl. (There is a method to my madness!) Oh, and if you’re going to put a bowl on a plate, put a paper napkin/serviette, or a folded paper towel in between them, and the bowl won’t be so slide-y on the plate when you’re carrying it and eating from it.
This afternoon, I phoned the guy’s insurance company to see who they work with here in town for body work. There were about five. I picked out two that are relatively close to my house (one was way downtown, another was way to the SW outside the Loop, another was way out NW of the Loop). Tomorrow, I’ve got to go to those two auto repair places and see who gets to fix my car. Depending on how I feel later in the afternoon, I may just go to knitting group tomorrow night, for the first time in months!
But, I have videos to watch and knitting to do, and I’m going to take my dishes to the kitchen and see what I can rustle up for a judicious application of dessert. Then , I can kick back and watch videos and knit a little.

I’m a great fan of the soup bowl, too. They’re perfect for salads, and a nice combo of yogurt, cereal, and fruit for breakfast. Of course, they’re also perfect for a helping of cobbler with ice cream. Who needs a petite dessert dish for that?
Your recent posts make me hungry. Now I need to check my fridge and prepare something yummy too!
