What Is Happening?

I know I’ve been gone for some time and can’t seem to write anything. I will tell you that the last week has been very busy for me. I fixed two big meals this week.

On Thursday, it was only four of us that got together because of everyone else’s schedule so we made the big meal on Saturday. The only problem was that I still had people to fix for on Thursday. So I thought I would do spaghetti. Well, I made a production of it. So it was almost as big a deal as Saturday.

My son requested meatballs. Not just spaghetti, but spaghetti with meatballs. And I can’t make just any meatballs. No, I have to make real meatballs and make them large. I figured out I didn’t have enough Italian sausage so I took an equal amount of ground beef and added garlic, oregano, and all the seasonings, then mixed it with the sausage. Then I could make some big meatballs.

That wasn’t all of it. I also fixed a huge amount of pasta along with garlic bread. Before I even started on that I made cinnamon rolls. I know I’m so awesome!

Now we can start on what happened on Saturday. A full Thanksgiving meal was had by all. My daughter brought a yummy salad and an even more yummy pie that was handmade. Had a couple of the grandkids with us too so it was fun watching them.

And what, do you ask, was the worst part of all? I don’t have a dishwasher! Yes, two full, large meals with no dishwasher. My hands are itching like crazy today. My skin doesn’t like dish soap very much. I feel like I washed dishes for three days straight. I know. Don’t cry about it. BUT MY HANDS ITCH!!!

So what is going on with all of you?
