Beef Stew with warm, homemade bread. So cozy!
EZ Recipe= 1 lb. stew meat, 1 can. tomato soup, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 packet dried onion soup mix, 1 lb. mixed veggies frozen...Put all in crockpot on low for 6 hours. Or...high for 3! I've done tons of scratch recipes and this remains the one that everyone loves best. Go figure.
2. Are you a creature of habit? Explain.
Yes, and I tend to get a little too comfortable in my routines. I need to work on my flexibility and spontaneity. I have the ability to be creative but it just takes that little added effort that so often I don't take.
3. What food product (no longer readily available) do you remember and miss from days gone by?
No longer readily available??...sheesh...Joyce these questions make you sound ancient...which you are NOT!! I miss those little oatmeal cakes. I know they still exist but I never buy them...cuz I'd eat them all. I remember my Mom having them for snack sometimes.
4. What's something you've lost that you've never been able to find? Any theories as to what happened?
Of all the things I've ever lost, I miss my mind the most. Theories...hmmm? Children...lost brain cells by the millions...yup!
5. Zoo~circus~ carnival...your favorite?
I guess I'll say the zoo...since I go so often with the Sweet Boobahs. It's very relaxing and interesting. When you live close you can make friends with different zoo keepers and connect with animals by name, etc. That has given the zoo added dimension for me.
6. What song makes you feel instantly happy?
7. To what extent are you an argumentative person?
In my family we argue for fun....and I'm not kidding. This is fine until it gets out of hand, of course. We like to debate and play "devil's advocate"...It really taught me to think through issues...especially spiritual issues. I love that my husband has embraced this part of my family over the years. At first I think they freaked him out...but now he'll join right into the fray...er, discussion!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
God's timing amazes me. Just a few posts ago I talked about wanting to shine and not shake...and about leaky pipes. God has a sense of humor ya'll. Yesterday we discovered a pipe was broken under the huge tree in our front yard. As the guy from the water company was telling me it was pouring 1.5 gpm (gallons per MINUTE)...and I was feeling a bit pale and seeing huge dollar signs...I was also struggling internally...cuz I wanted to act Christ-like...*remember I'd just written that "I don't want to just appear...I want to really BE."...trusting God*...So, I took a deep breath and prayed for peace...and it came. Full peace that God knew about this leak and would take care of it. Then I called my Loverbrains...and he discovered that the sewer insurance we'd purchased 3 years ago was actually for sewer, gas and WATER...so we are covered. Praise God....for His faithfulness and for waiting long enough to show me that it would be okay regardless. He's even giving me ample time to get my laundry done this morning before they shut the water off...cuz we all know they never start on time. Haha!
