It's Quiet Around Here

This is before the organization of pantry
My daughter and her family are all moved into their apartment, it sure is quiet around here. Truth be told,  I am enjoying the peace and quiet. They are still running back and forth to pick up a few items left behind and the grandkids will most likely be back this Saturday night to spend the night.

 I am cleaning out and organizing my pantry.  We did this earlier this year before the pandemic/lockdown started but over time it took on a life if it's own.  My son-in-law and I prepared most of the meals while they were living here, so we both were adding and using stuff without a great deal of organization.  It's going to take a day or two to get it in order and cleaned out properly. 

There are a few things to pack up for eBay today.  Sales have slowed down a bit, maybe it is that time of year.  With all the chaos that has been going on for the last week, I have not really listed anything.  I am still working through the free donations of Noritake china from a co-worker.  I think that will be a slow dime for sure. But with eBay, you never know.




I made Oatmeal Scotchies today while waiting on hubs to fix the mower.   I love using these Silpats, the cookies keep a nice round shape and are easy to remove. The mower died right when
I started and it seems it needs a wire or something repaired before I can get back to it.  He went to the hardware store to get the wire and said it shouldn't take long, so I decided to bake a few cookies while I waited.


They were pretty tasty!

Good Day everyone, just want to share my experience here so you all should be more careful when contacting any herbalist for solution cos majority of the testimonies are fake and were the ones that fooled me.they all uses the same local code number (+234) cos i have been screwed by some of them.My Husband was suffering from Hsv for years and i went everywhere to get useful information that will help cure or suppress the disease.then i came across testimonies of those that took my hard earn money without any useful information or cure but they keep telling stories.about two months ago, a new staff was employed in my place of work and when He heard about my Husband Disease He was so remorseful and told me about Dr Emmanuel.but i felt it was still one of those Internet guys so i didn't call or text Dr Emmanuel. later that week, He asked me if i`ve heard from Dr Emmanuel and he gave me proof and reasons to try.well, lots of thanks to Dr Emmanuel cos as im writing this message, my Husband is CURED through the herbs that Dr Emmanuel sent to us.so after my experience, i decided to save some people from falling to the hands of SCAMS.thx for your time and if you require the service of Dr Emmanuel, you have to reach him via email: nativehealthclinic@gmail.com  or WhatsApp/Call +2348140073965

  2. Those Oatmeal Scotchies look so good. I know you will enjoy having your pantry organized again when you are done. It makes it so much easier to get in there and cook when you know where everything is. :)

  4. Those cookies look yummy! Can you please share the recipe when you get a chance?

    I too am working on the pantry. I'm actually rearranging my entire stockpile. Trying to use up the older stuff first and get a better idea of what I still need to add to stockpile. Mine's a work in progress.

    1. Ms Goose, it was the recipe off of the Quaker Oats Lid. I just added the bag of butterscotch morsels and I threw in half a bag of shredded coconut because I had it lying around. I double the recipe, and used Margarine instead of butter.

    2. Thank you! I actually had an open container & found the recipe. I don't have any morsels, but have lots of coconut.
