Very Restful Weekend....

WE actually had a weekend with nothing....absolutely nothing going on.  Nick didn't come home....so on Saturday, I got caught up on a little of this and a little of that....Then went to Kris' for a yummy dinner and on Sunday....broke out the Ikea Kitchen planner and went to town doing the cabinets for the Laundry Room.  Steven had started doing it...but the program really frustrated him, so after spending a few hours just figuring it out, I went to town and got the whole room planned out.  Unfortunately it won't let me post the picture....  So glad that is done, now maybe we can actually get the cabinets!!!!

But this week does not look restful.  Last night, just before the sky opened up and the rain came....they parked a bunch of county trucks across Latigo from us in the Public Open Space.   This morning they brought in the big earth movers, and have been building a mountain....truck after truck of dirt....beeping , and making all sorts of noise.  The dogs are so upset..... I guess they are using this as one of the staging areas for the big project on Meridian.  While it will be nice when it is all finished....I think I will take the back, dirt road to town.  It sounds like it will be a very noisy summer.

Here's a picture of the fun Hostess gifts I gave out in June.  We did a project using White Staz-On, and this used it also on the cover of the little tins.  Fun little gift to make!!!!

And here's another card, from Karen...as I cleaned out my Stationary drawer.  Great Christmas card!!!!
And here is a sample of one of the cards that we made at Jennell's for our Stamp Day.

It has turned cool here....or at least it feels cool, compared to how hot it was....so we have moved to more casserole and stew type dinners.  Here's a Goulash I made last week....

Hungarian Goulash

2-3  Tbls. oil
2 onions, finely chopped
1 pinch caraway seeds
Salt to taste
1 3/4 lbs. beef, cut into small pieces
1 Tbls. paprika
1 red or green bell pepper, sliced
1 clove carlic, crushed
1 tomato, peeled

In a skillet, heat oil and saute the onions.  Sprinkle with caraway seeds and salt.  Add the beef and brown well.  Lower the heat and cover.  Steam for a few minutes.  Add the paprika and mix well.  Add a little water and bring to a boil.  Lower the heat again.  When the meat is 3/4 cooked.  add the bell pepper, garlic, and tomato.  Simmer at medium heat until the meat is tender.  If needed, add a little water.  Enjoy and Bon Appetit!!!!
