Roses, lunch, and a shopping trip

Today for lunch my husband brought me roses. No he didn't go out to get them on his way home from a store, but went out to our rose bush and cut them himself. This for some reason makes me feel even more loved than if he had paid big bucks for them. I think I'm one of the only women who get home grown roses in December. Sure we don't have an abundant supply like in the spring when unexpectedly I may receive two the three dozen roses waiting for me when I get home from shopping. In most cases with feeling loved it's the little things that matter.

Today we had chicken with onion, peppers, and mushrooms with cheesy rice. I know what your thinking O wow, she must have worked hard on that. Nope not really. I defrosted chicken breast, seasoned it, cooked it for 5 min then poured the left over onions, peppers, and mushrooms (making their third and final appearance. First they were for steaks, then appeared in fajita , now they are chicken topping.) The cheesy rice was my husband's favorite creamy four cheese rice a roni. So yeah not as fancy as initially imagined is it. The reason we had this for lunch is because I need to go grocery shopping. I know, I've been needing to go for days but I really like getting down to the bottom of a supply before going and getting more food. We are not near the end however the ecentials are running low. Bread, eggs and milk have all disappeared. While out I'm going to make sure to pick up some things for pizzelle's. Pizzelle's for Christmas are a family tradition in the Baron's family so I'm going to try it out. Wish me luck.

Mrs. Clause might have to pick up some Christmas presents if she's got time. This year Mrs. Clause might be a bit cheap and check out goodwill and resale shops. Why pay full price when you can buy second hand... right?
