This is what I did with the coffee table. Simple.
The rest of my little trees in one spot. In a tub I had on the patio.
I surrounded them with various gold ornaments, though it's hard to see them.
I made the meat loaf yesterday. And at the last minute, I decided to do something a little different. Instead of one big meatloaf, I divided it into 8 small loaves.
I put them into a 13x9 inch casserole dish, and it only took 30 minutes to cook! I couldn't believe it.
The smart Breville oven lets you know when it is done.
Oh, this was moist! So I ate one little loaf for lunch.
If meatloaf is in the Breville, there isn't room for anything else. So then I made some scalloped potatoes and of course, a pan of cornbread, later for supper.
I have a loaf left for tonight's supper. And I froze three loaves for another night. So I won't be eating meatloaf till I'm sick to death of it. Instant meal for three other days!
I finally picked out my Christmas present for myself. Last year it was the big kitchen cart from World Market. (Did you know they're breaking ground for Tulsa's World Market right now?) Yippee!
My daughters and I made a deal years ago that we wouldn't exchange presents.
What I do is take the grands to the bookstore after the big holiday is over. Grammy takes them to Barnes & Noble and we buy books.
So after hemming and hawing and thinking and looking, I finally decided on something from Amazon.com.
You know how much I love my coffee. So I decided I will get myself another Keurig.
I gave my first Keurig to my youngest daughter (who still uses it) about five or six years ago and got myself one of the minis. But the mini went out in less than two years time. So I was a little gun-shy at that time about the Keurigs.
But there are days when I wouldn't mind a nice cup of hot chocolate in the afternoon. Maybe an iced coffee. A fast and easy treat.
I wouldn't need to necessarily use it every day. I can use my Cuisinart I brought here with me from Texas too.
So I combined that with a couple of things I needed from Amazon.com, and already had in my virtual cart.
A reader had mentioned that, for my mouse problem, that I try something you plug into the wall to hopefully keep the creatures away.
I ordered a USB Riddex Plus Charge Pest Repelling Aid with built-in nightlight. Boy, that was a mouthful! It was less than $30.
I also had one other thing already in my cart.
It is the Glasslock 18-piece oven-safe container set. Price: $25.99.
Most of my Corning Ware is old (about 20 years old now) and after breaking pieces over the years, the set is mismatched.
This was a good price, I thought. And there were lots of great reviews.
So here is my Christmas present:
The Keurig K55 in black for $72.
A 50-count K-cup variety coffee pack, which was $34.
Do any of you have this Keurig? I'd love to hear your opinion.
