Good morning. It's 9:30 a.m. and it is still a bit cloudy with temps around 73F degrees. Oh my, this feels so gooooooood!! Pogo has been sitting by the screen door for the past hour just relishing the beautiful cool breeze.
Oh dear. Are you watching on the news about the salmonella outbreak because of cucumbers from Mexico? There have been deaths already reported in several states. I was going to pick up a couple cukes this week, but I have just now crossed them off my shopping list. I'm not even going to ask the clerk at the store where their cucumbers come from. I just won't buy them until this issue has been resolved.
Also in the news is a new way of paying your MasterCard bill with a "selfie" on your phone. It's being tested until October to see if it will be a viable way of making bill paying much easier. Hmmm, I doubt very much if I'll be one of the folks eager to use this means of making payments. I like the old fashioned way of writing out a check and putting it in the mail.
Well, my long awaited package finally arrived yesterday afternoon. Woo Hoo! I am so looking forward to trying a few new recipes in my new pressure cooker. Isn't this just the prettiest cooking pot ever? Sort of makes you want to cook up something tasty!
Yeahhhhh! It also comes with instructions on how to use the pot, along with cooking guides. Oh be still my heart! Also in the box is this cute little recipe book with some yummy looking ideas.
I also purchased the big cookbook by the same author as the little book included with the pot. Last night I spent a while going through it and picking out the recipes I want to try out first.
In a little while, I'll have to re-write my shopping list to include all the ingredients I'll be needing for my cooking lesson. Hang in there Pogo!! I feel a delicious beef stew coming up soon!
DIL Janet was here last evening, and we ordered out pizza for our supper. Mmmm, delicious! And I didn't have to cook it! We discussed our plans for making a quilt after the holidays have gone by. JoAnn's Fabric Store offers lots of classes, and one of them is Quilting 101. (or something to that effect) We've decided to sign up for this class when we're ready to start.
I've watched a couple different weather reports on TV this morning, and so far they are both in agreement that we can expect some rain today and tonight. Maybe even more rain tomorrow morning. This would be nice if it really happens. We did have a few light sprinkles very early this morning, but nothing since.
Well, that's about all my news for this morning. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
