Scott was hungry for a meatloaf. He doesn’t make many requests, and this one came a couple weeks ago. I was off today and he could come home for dinner. So, this morning I mixed up meatloaf. I had enough to bake one for dinner and put one in the freezer for a future meal. I looked through four different cook books and had a pretty good idea of a meatloaf recipe. There were some dregs in the fridge that needed to be used up. Plus, I recently bought some smoked paprika that I was itching to try. I have never used smoked paprika before. Can I just say, BEST meatloaf EVER!!! Yum-O!!! Magical meatloaf, smashed potatoes and green beans were served.
I also received one of those FUN chartreuse bags via FedEx today!!! ; ) I laundered the fabric and had it out on my lines to dry. Ahhhh! Bliss…and dreaming of Spring too.
In other news, we had a 10 month old extended family member who underwent brain surgery on Monday. An abnormality was discovered during a well baby visit and she was immediately admitted to Pediatric ICU. A prepared and focused Team spent 7 1/2 hours performing delicate surgery on her little brain. So far everything is looking up. <BIG sigh of relief and much gratitude and thankfulness> If you can spare a moment of prayer or + juju our families would be ever so appreciative.
Please, do not take for granted the gifts that you are given, daily…you never know. Celebrate EVERY day – USE the linen napkins, wear the sexy lingerie, light the candles and put a vase of flowers on the table. Rejoice in even the small things. Have a glad heart and a soul that sings!
