It's been a busy weekend. Here's what's been happening
- We went to a cutting horse show (photo above) which was fun (and free). Who knew Las Vegas was such a horse place? There seems to be horse shows of one kind or another about every other weekend here!
- It's kind of a rainy weekend. Fortunately the rain isn't at all like it is in Seattle but it has been gray and overcast since Friday.
- I'm worried about the hubby. Most of the time he is perfectly fine but occasionally he seems a bit off. Some of this is due to swings in blood sugar (which has happened a few times and really freaked me out) but I think some of it could be something else so I need to somehow get him to his doctor and see what is going on. I have been worried about this before but the SIL mentioned seeing the same thing and said TAKE HIM TO A DOCTOR so that is on my list to do this week.
- I got more work out of the blue. While the big project is on hold, my friend called me and asked if I wanted to do a smaller project with some fire chiefs I had worked with five or six years ago. Of course I said yes. It's kind of strange to have people from the past coming out of the woodwork lately.
- I talked myself into and out of getting a table this weekend. When I get fixated on something, that is all I think about and suddenly I felt the need for a tablet. I looked, I researched, I shopped. I looked at 7" tablets which were cute but only slightly bigger than my cell phone then I looked at 10" tablets and I think that is the size I want one but at nearly $400 it is out of my budget for now (it isn't an emergency so I can't take the money out of our emergency fund no matter how much I want it). So I have decided to wait. Impatiently.
- And here is a recipe for chili I saw on TV today. It looked really simple so I gave it a try and hubby gave it two thumbs up. Brown ground beef and onions with a bit of salt, chili powder, garlic, and a diced jalapeno. Add a can of diced tomatoes with the juice. In a blender, blend a can of black beans (with the liquid, don't drain them) and a jalapeno pepper. Pour this into the ground beef mixture and simmer. Add some chopped cilantro. I served it with grated cheddar cheese, chopped onions, and sour cream. You can also use this for a base and add chopped celery, canned whole beans and/or any other chili ingredients you can think of. It was really tasty!
