Time for Spring Cleaning

First I wanted to mention that one night I was making meatloaf, well, at least I wanted to make meatloaf, but I didn't have any bread crumbs or crackers to add to the ground meat.  As I was looking through my cabinets to see if there was possibly anything I could come up with to add to the meat, I had Stove Top Stuffing.  Well, why not I thought to myself.  It had spices in it so I thought it would give the meatloaf a nice taste.  And I was pleasantly surprised to find, after it was cooked, that it was very good.  So, I may be adding Stove Top more often to my meatloafs!

Wednesday I sat down with my slow cooker recipe book and went through it to figure out which meals I wanted to make.  I have got to get back to cooking, no other way around it.  So I decided to make beef stew Thursday night.  But, I didn't have some of the ingredients so I knew I'd have to run to the store, but I had other errands to run to also, so by the time I got home and ten remembering I had to take the cat to the vets there was no time for me to start my dinner.  Dh and I didn't get out of the vets until 8:30pm!!  Our appointment was for 7:10, but they had a couple of emergencies and it put them behind.  We left there $500 more in debt.  What do you do...pets medical costs are worse than humans.  Miss Puma (our cat) had ears that bleed because of tumors and it's costing more and more to treat her condition.  Anyway, I'm hoping that today I can get started on my stew.

But the spring cleaning bug is starting to hit.  I'm tired of seeing piles of dirt and clutter.  Want to make the house pretty again.
