Well it has been a hectic few days... We had a great weekend with friends... went to a car show in Duncan on Sunday and then had some wonderful friends over for a barbacue... I am going to fill in what I have missed in the last couple of days today.....Here is the menu for the rest of the week...
WEDNESDAY....Crockpot Cabbage Rolls
THURSDAY.....Chicken in Balsamic Dijon Sauce
FRIDAY....Hamburger Bean Soup

    2 eggs, lightly beaten 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk 2 lb (907 g) lean ground beef 2/3 cup (150 mL) uncooked rice 1 small finely chopped onion 2 tsp (10 mL) salt 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper 1 can (28 oz) tomato sauce 2-1/2 tbsp (31 mL) brown sugar 2-1/2 tsp (10 mL) Worcestershire sauce 2-1/2 tbsp (31 mL) lemon juice 1 head of cabbage
    Preparation: Boil a large pot of water. Score the cabbage around the core as deep as you can with a large knife. Immerse in the boiling water and as the leaves soften (within 2 minutes, just peel them away with tongs and place in a colander or strainer. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef with egg, milk, salt, pepper, rice and onion. Place a few tablespoons or so of the meat mixture in center of each cabbage leaf, fold the sides and roll. Place into the slow cooker, seam side down. Repeat process until all meat mixture is used. In another bowl, combine the tomato sauce, brown, sugar, lemon juice and worcestershire sauce and pour over the cabbage rolls. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Serve with sauce.  You will love this Saturday Dessert

    These are real cute... Easy Lampshades.

    Tipsy Tuesday
    This month I seem to have family and friends that are all doing big moves.. So I thought this might help them out a bit with there packing and that is to colour coordinate.
     Designate a colour for each room in the new home, such as yellow for kitchen, orange for dining room, etc. Apply colored stickers on the box.. In your new home.put a matching sticker on the door to each room. The movers or your friends and family that are helping  will know where to put everything when they arrive at the new place. It's also helpful to post a big sign on the wall in the room where you want boxes stacked, ("Boxes here please") to keep them out of furniture and traffic areas. It seems like a lot of work but believe me on moving day it is going to save so much time.. more time saved more time for Pizza and beer...
