|Buffalo Chicken Wontons and Ice Cream |
Compliments of Neighbor S and Daughter N
Thank you, everyone, for your concern and caring comments about my fall. Last night, I felt a little achy and took a Tylenol before I went to sleep. This morning, I slept in most of the morning and woke up feeling quite well! Thank goodness for that! Nevertheless, I took it easy and mostly relaxed. It was another sunny and warm day, which was lovely!
Cousin N had texted while I was sleeping in (I woke up when I heard her text coming through, but, decided to sleep a bit longer); I returned her text once I was up. She was checking up on me and I was told not to go chasing after rabbits! LOL. Her mother, Aunt C called, too, to ask how I was.
Today, I made pancakes for brunch. I must admit that I cheat and use a boxed mix - the store brand "complete buttermilk pancake - just add water" mix - when I make American style pancakes! I have only once made American style pancakes from scratch and I must not have done it properly, because I didn't much like them! They were too dense, not light and fluffy! I make the thin pancakes that I grew up eating from scratch. But, today, I made American style pancakes from the boxed mix and warmed up some ham slices that I had in the freezer to go with them. Then, I did the dishes and scrubbed the stove top!
In the afternoon, I did two loads of laundry. I always feel that I've been productive when I do a load or two of laundry! LOL.
For dinner, I cooked a package of mild Italian sausages with sliced onions, bell pepper strips (from the garden!) and slices of zucchini (from the garden, of course!), thawed and reheated a container of homemade pasta sauce made with tomatoes from the garden, and boiled some spaghetti. It made a nice dinner and there are enough leftovers for another meal.
This evening, we were also treated to a plate of Buffalo chicken wontons (made by neighbor S's daughter N) and chocolate coated vanilla cheesecake with poppy seeds ice cream bars, which neighbor S brought over! The fried wontons were delicious and I called N to thank her and ask her for recipe directions. Apparently, it is based on a copycat recipe she found online for an appetizer served at a restaurant! I think my next grocery order will include wonton wrappers! LOL!
After dinner, I had a chat with friend R.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Feeling OK after yesterday's fall
- Wonderful neighbors like S and her daughter N
- Caring friends and family
- Working appliances
- Sunny, warm days
Today's joyful activity was chatting with family and friends.
Plans for tomorrow include putting in a grocery order. According to the news, there are shortages and empty store shelves due to disruptions in the supply chains! I haven't been inside a grocery store since the beginning of the pandemic, so, I really don't know what is available or not! I guess I will just put in my order as I usually do and then, see what happens. The store will let me know if they need to make substitutions or if an item is unavailable.
What are your plans for tomorrow? Have you experienced any shortages in your stores and grocery shopping, recently?
