Guess who comes tonight?
Looks like he’s been hitting the egg nog pretty hard already….
Every once in a while, I find a ladybug or two in my shower. We get no other bugs in the house other than an occasional spider or fly. They only show up in the master bedroom shower. They don’t stay long. How do they get there? Where do they come from? It’s a mystery.
Steve, here is what Erin’s floor looks like now with the carpet replaced.
Did you watch the eclipse last night? It was amazing! Erin, Jordyn, Kathryn and I watched from about 12:40 am until about 2:30 am when it clouded up and we couldn’t see anymore. It was really beautiful.
We saw tons of stars. Were able to pick out several constellations. And, we saw 5-6 shooting stars.
Here is one of Kathryn’s photos:
Here is one of mine:
Cool picture from last year. Has a little “Christmas Story” feel to it…
Erin was the top entrepreneur for her class in the 5th grade business fair today. Second out of the whole 5th grade. Congratulations Erin!! Will add pictures if I get some….
I don’t know where NaNa originally found this recipe but I now consider it hers. Hope you don’t mind if I post this NaNa! I had several requests for it after preparing it yesterday evening.
2 cups BBQ sauce (note 1)
1 cup bourbon (note 2)
1 cup prepared mustard (note 3)
1 cup honey
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (note 4)
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice (note 4)
1/8 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
32 ounce bag Italian style meatballs, thawed (note 5)
Mix all except the meatballs. Bring to a boil. Add the meatballs and reduce heat to simmer about 25 minutes.
note 1: NaNa uses Cattleman’s. I used KC Masterpiece Original – which is what I happened to have on hand.
note 2: NaNa uses Jack Daniels. I used Evan Williams – which is what I happened to have on hand.
note 3: NaNa uses Dijon. I used French’s yellow – which is what I happened to have on hand. (Noticing a trend here yet??)
note 4: Didn’t have/too lazy to use fresh so used grated zest from a jar and juice from a bottle. Still yummy.
note 5: I only had regular meatballs. Again, still yummy. Also, makes lots of sauce so I put in two bags of meatballs.
