“Slow down, you crazy child, take the phone off the hook and disappear for awhile. It’s alright, you can afford to lose a day or two…..Slow down, you’re doin’ fine, you can’t be everything you wanna be before your time…..You know you see when you’re wrong, you can’t always see when you’re right….Dream on, but don’t imagine they’ll all come true…” ~Billy Joel
Spent the day hanging out with Adam and the kiddos. We got the last of our Christmas decorations packed away, until next year. Everybody pitched in. We organized everything into totes, vacuumed the floors, and put some new things up. I got a Nashville skyline picture, for Christmas. We hung it today.
The kids don’t have school, tomorrow, because it’s a holiday. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Adam will start his first day of work, here. Going from an hour drive, to work, to a ten minute one. Jackie and I plan to take the kids thrift shopping, tomorrow. She wants to find some projects to work on. It’s fun to buy something old and worn, and make it into something beautiful again.
The sun is shining. It’s only in the 50’s, so not particularly warm out, but the sun feels good. Adam grilled some hotdogs and brats, last night. We used chili and some nacho cheese, to make chili dogs. Tonight, I’m making some homemade cheeseburger macaroni. I realize, I make things with cheese a lot! We do love our pastas and cheese, here at our house. If anyone is interested in the cheeseburger mac recipe, I’ll share it here.
1 pound ground beef or turkey
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups water
2 cups elbow macaroni noodles
1 cup processed cheese (like Velveeta)
I just brown the ground beef/turkey with the minced onion. Add the garlic and onion powder. Then add water and macaroni noodles. Turn heat to high and boil for about 11 minutes. Reduce heat to low, add cheese, and stir until cheese is melted. Wah-Lah!
