It’s getting old eating out so much. I enjoyed it for a while but now that we’ve done it day after day after day . . I just want to stay at home, plan meals, cook, clean my kitchen and sit down to stitch, knowing we had a healthy, home cooked meal. It’s just not happening but mostly, it isn’t by choice.
We (mostly Vince) worked outside a lot today. Vince had bought some bricks that were on sale at Home Depot and he’s putting those under the landscape timbers to hopefully keep them from rotting so quickly . . now that we live in an area where it actually rains and the ground gets wet. He decided he should go back and get a few more and we want some fast growing evergreen type trees to plant on one side of the house so we wanted to see what was at Home Depot that might work so Vince came in about 3 and wanted me to run to Home Depot with him. It’s hard to say no when I know he really wants me to go and he’s worked so hard getting things done that I want done (raised beds), plus . . he loves eating out.
The plan was that we would have leftover salmon and baked potatoes for dinner, along with a salad. The potatoes were already “baked” in the Instant Pot but I was able to leave it on warm and run to town with him.
From Home Depot, he wanted to go to the Mexican grocery store to get a few things for a recipe he wants me to make and then he wanted to run by the library since we were close. Oh, my goodness . . it was getting close to 4 and I knew by the time we got home, it was going to be too late for dinner and all we had so far was breakfast. I gave him that look and he said “let’s go get BBQ at Boomer’s” so . . I agreed ONLY if he promised me we would eat at home for at least a week. Right!
I love their pulled pork plate with twice baked potato casserole. I mix the meat with the potatoes and it is so good! If you’re ever in Carthage, MO, go by Boomer’s BBQ (Exit 53 off I-49). Good food. Good service. No affiliation – just love their pulled pork and potato casserole.
So . . once again . . I’m wondering if I REALLY needed that new stove. Not worth wondering about at this point. It’s been purchased so we’re getting it whether we need it or not.
