Today's plan was the sausage and stuffing recipe I found on Pepperidge farm's web site. But Larry beat me to the stove and made split pea soup. I had never eaten it until I discovered erbsen soup in Germany. I didn't even know the English word for it. So I'm not complaining! We also had a hard roll which I hope to not enjoy again.
Yesterday Larry made our after noon pot of decaf. A little later he went back to find coffee all over the floor and all the lights off on the coffee maker. But I could hear it burning away so I decided coffee in cups would be in our future...for that day. I started looking online for a replacement but decided to use the backup pot if necessary. Today all the lights were back on and it did fine.

After I made my lovely casseroles, I had pepperidge farm stuffing mix left. I went to their website to hopefully find a recipe that would use the rest of the stuffing mix. I found a promising recipe and then got sucked in found a couple more likely looking recipes...one being banana panini! So I have my shopping list ready, clothes on, breakfast consumed, bedclothes in the washer...ready to run errands😀

I've been choosing a book to listen to while trying to drop off to sleep. Last night I chose one of the Vorkosigan books by Lois Bujold. It turned out to be a bad choice as I was soon shaking with laughter, trying to be still and quiet so as not to disturb my husband. It also isn't easy to drop off to sleep while giggling.

One of our volunteers called yesterday to say she would be out for a while because she had broken her pelvis. Two clerks helped her into her car and she drove about forty miles to the emergency room in her hometown. I commented that she was tough. She said it was what she had to do. I said she could have called 911 and requested an ambulance take her to the nearest hospital. She said she didn't want to go to that hospital.

We used to love angel biscuits. We finally got tired of them and haven't had them for a long time. Larry found a recipe for them in a magazine and passed it to me so I tried it. I tossed the rest of the mixture because it wasn't at all what I expected. Today I made a batch using the old recipe. I'll try cooking some tomorrow. It's a good recipe, partly because it holds in the refrigerator for days so it's easy to have them for any meal.

A guy pulled in to my driveway right behind me. I got out of my car and walked over to see what he wanted. He asked if I wanted to sell my car. I didn't but understood why he wanted one. He said he already had one and wanted to get one for his wife. Yea, Honda Civic!
Today I went to Pizza Hut for the lunch buffet. The waitress told me that the salad buffet wasn't in operation. Something was wrong underneath and there was water on the floor. Somebody was trying to fix it.
I said I was very sorry to hear that as I really liked the Caesar salad. But I went to the pizza buffet and found they had pepperoni with the thin and crispy crust which is my favorite. By the time I got back to the table, the waitress said the manager told her to fix me a caesar salad. So she fixed one and brought it out.
I was very pleased with the service, as well as the food.

After volunteering, I went home and found a message on the phone telling me Larry was going to be gone on jury duty all day. So I decided I'd shop. Shopping isn't my favorite thing but at least it would be over.
So back in the car with my list and on to town. It took forever, mainly because the machine I got for self check out kept telling me I had extra stuff on the bag area. Finally the person came over and showed me how to fix that, what to do if it claimed I hadn't bagged it when I had, and how to do fruits and vegetables that weren't bagged. I'm tempted to go back tomorrow and see if I remember:)
Finally I got home and got the stuff put away.
So tomorrow I don't have to shop:)
Driving in on a back road this morning, a car roared past me. He passed on a hill ignoring the double yellow line. I was fussing about idiot drivers when I glanced in the rear view mirror and saw a big spider on my headrest. I grabbed it and almost left the road. Yes, the idiots were out this morning!

We went to Jackson today. I needed a cover for my new Kindle. I didn't want to buy one without seeing it because I was worried about the opening for the camera. They only had one style, so that was an easy choice. I'd been carrying it around in a dish towel...classy.
Then we had the unlimited soup, salad, and bread sticks at Olive Garden and I got the Italian donuts with chocolate dipping sauce to go to have with our afternoon coffee.
Larry stopped at a toy store and put something on lay away. While he was in there, I went next door to the bakery. I didn't get anything because I'd already gotten donuts, but the smell was glorious.
The humidity was low, the temperature in the low 80's so I fertilized my flower boxes and baskets in comfort and weeded a little. I hope I can remember not to start another flower bed. Weeding is always on my list of things to do.
