Lazy Day

I forgot to say that Sunday I got all of the seeds into the dirt. I have 2 types of peas, 4 types of tomatoes, eggplant, green peppers. If they all come up there will be 9 tiny plants for each item. That should be plenty. And it should save us quite a bit of money as I won't have to buy the plants. Then once I can get outside to plant I will do lettuce, onions, potatoes (white and sweet), cabbage, beans ( green and lima). Not sure what else I will plant as this is quite ambitious for us as it is.
I was so busy yesterday. I started cleaning mouthy monsters bedroom. Mind you mouthy is only 5 so a lot of help is needed. LOL! 2 bags of trash, broken toys, stained clothes and paper, a ton of paper. She loves to draw but doesn't keep them nice. The drawings end up everywhere. I have tried to organizer her. She just doesn't fit into the organized category.
We had the first estimator come to give us a price on our roof. WOW! For the cheapest roof its $3500 for the most expensive the starting price is $12k. I just sat there listening and told him, let us think about it and we'll get back to you. All I can say is NEXT!
My idea of calzone's was shot down. I will put that on hold till one day next week. We ended up making Shepard's pie:
2lb hamburger
1 onion
2 cans of mixed veggies
1 can of corn
2 cans of beef broth
4 tbsp of flour
Mashed potatoes
Cooked hamburger and onion. Added beef broth and veggies and flour. Simmer till thickened. Poured into a casserole dish and topped with mashed potatoes. Baked uncovered for 25 minutes at 350. And of course I forgot to take a picture, next time.
Monsters weren't home for dinner but DH and I ate. Loved it. Once the Monsters came home they said they would rather have been here for dinner. That's ok, cause we had a ton left so that is what is for dinner tonight..... YEAH! No cooking tonight. LOL!
I still haven't gotten around to making dessert bread or even bread for sandwiches. I was up last night with a sick stomach. I know that I shouldn't snack before bed but I was hungry last night. I worked out late. So I paid for it. I am taking it easy today. I was able to work more on the afghan. All of the variegated is done. Now I am on to the dark blue. Only 3 1/2 skeins left.
Tomorrow I get to have the pressure gauge tested. So I think that I will start with turkey stock. Oh I can't wait. DH and I were discussing what we are going to make over dinner last night. Looks like I need more jars already and I haven't done any thing yet. LOL! I think I have accumulated about 8 dozen empty jars. But that will never be enough.
