Throw Out Stuff ~ Atlas ~ Easy Cheesy Chicken Casserole

Good 48ยบ cloudy might rain morning.... the radar shows the rain going off to the east....

We got thunder about 3pm yesterday and then 12 or 6 drops of rain. Then wind.
Yesterday I was going to mow, but instead decided on laundry and cleaning out another kitchen cupboard. Pulled bunches of stuff out that I hadn't used in forever and I filled a ginormous trash bag!!! Yes. And I have a grocery bag with stuff to take to the food bank in town. Good feeling to be able to see in a cupboard and see everything that's in there! More of the same, later this week! 

Today would have been my granddog Atlas' birthday. He was Brian Jen Tucker and Sami's Weimaraner. Sadly he passed away a couple of years ago. So missed. Such a love. The best dog ever! So gentle with the kids.  RIP Atlas!

My sister Betty sent these to me... keys from Mom and Dad's house. The keys were used from 1939 - 1968 when Daddy changed the locks due to a missing hidden key..

Later I cooked some yams in the casserole Crock*pot
and had some with the smoked pork Cliff made. Good! TV was a cute Hallmark movie.

All I know. Happy Monday. Nuff said. Ciao.

No Dirty Dishes Day

No Dirty Dishes Day is a reprieve from the daily pile of dishes to wash and dry. Day after day, we do the daily chore of washing and drying dishes, then put them away in various cabinets and drawers. We perform this task after each and every meal, and often after snacks. Even putting them in and out of the dishwasher and running it, can be a chore.
You deserve a break from this routine. And, today is that day. The objective of this day is to have no dirty dishes. It is not intended to pile them up until tomorrow.
We can think of two ways to avoid dirty dishes today:
  • Use disposable plates, cups and silverware for all meals and snacks.
  • Take the family out to eat all three meals. Then for snack, go out for ice cream!
We strongly recommend that you do not pile up the dishes to do tomorrow.  This defeats the purpose of this very special day.
