I've Been Away
I've been away from my blog several days painting kitchen cabinets in our old house to prepare it for renting....not fun. I'm thinking two or three more full days should do it. Before I could begin painting I had to remove about 40 years worth of old contact paper from the shelves. This was a real ordeal until I remembered a tip I read somewhere and I dashed home for my hair dryer. Fifteen seconds of hot air on the sticky paper and it releases its grip and can be peeled off without broken nails and sweat! Too bad I didn't remember this until so far into the job.
Before I leave for the day I will put together a crock pot of chili so we have a hot meal waiting for us after our day of work. I found a nice recipe for corndogs made in mini muffin cups with a corn muffin batter and chunks of hotdog poked in the center. Cute and yummy looking. If they turn out well I will share the recipe with you on a later post.
We have been getting a lot of rain, storms and wind. We had the propane take filled yesterday because Halloween is usually the beginning of our really cold weather every year. Our traditional Halloween meal is homemade vegetable beef soup and cornbread ~~ yes, we eat a lot of cornbread around here.
I'm off to find my painting clothes. I hope you have a great weekend.
Until next time ~~ Peace & Plenty
