Monday Ramblings

This morning was a busy one. I had to go to Motor Vehicle to renew my drivers license, then to the jeweler to drop off some bracelets to be fixed and rings to be re-sized. Then we headed to the grocery store to get everything I need to bake for Thanksgiving. I am making a Pumpkin Cheesecake and an Orange Cream Pie (with a chocolate crust...YUM!!!). Hubby made lunch, which was really nice and then after he left for work it was nap time. This afternoon wasn't as busy since I spent most of it asleep. But I did start reading New Moon, which FINALLY came in the mail today. I played with the boys for awhile, then made dinner (grilled chicken, egg noodles and asparagus). While we were eating we were listening to J's Backyardigans CD and we were all singing along when I had a flashback of sorts....I remembered that when I was growing up my parents had a "no singing at the table" rule. For the life of me I cannot understand why? Sorry Mom and Dad....I just don't get it. Was my singing that bad? We were allowed to watch TV at the table, but no singing...LOL.

Ok, back to my ramblings...I have been a bad blogger buddy. I promised to post the Crockpot Rice Pudding recipe that I use and I forgot several times. Please forgive me....please! don't make me grovel. So here is the link to the recipe site....Enjoy!

Loved the questions, I may use them too. I love that I went to the store too , to get a few things and it was like they were giving the stuff away. I still forgot the ketchup I don't know if I will go back before Thanksgiving to get it. My sons will be disappointed. Oh well yes i am disappointed-Nick says (my youngest son)
