Eats & Leaks

I  came across a can of sausage gravy that was hiding in the cupboard.

The Mister loved to have buttered toast that was covered in this gravy and I had forgotten all about it. Actually, s.o.s .was one of his favorites too even though he had lots of that when he was in the army. 

Here is what I did. I cut a couple of slices of my freshly baked Rhodes bread, toasted and buttered it. I opened the can of gravy and scooped it into my two-cup Pyrex measuring pitcher. I like to heat things up in the microwave slow and low. While that was heating, I cooked about one third of a bag of frozen chopped spinach, then drained it completely. The spinach was put on top of each slice of toast, the gravy poured on top. It was delicious and I have enough saved for another meal. Actually the meal was quite balanced (in my way) with meat, dairy, fat, carb, green vegetable! It's not something you can just order at a restaurant! Now I have a hankerin' for calves liver - no bacon - no onions, just gently sautéed in a little butter with a side of mashed potatoes! Maybe a vegetable. 

As for the leaks...In the past years, the flashing around the chimney has had to be redone a couple of times. When we get hard rain for long lengths of time an indoor flashlight inspection is done to see if the log around the chimney at the top is at all wet. Oops! Yes, this morning the chimney was darker than it should be up there and the log on one side was dark. I called my favorite home repair business and a fellow came immediately to inspect. Monday he'll return to do the fix. There is NEVER a dull minute around here. The rain has now stopped and that is a good thing. It was coming down VERY hard for several hours here.

This graphic made me laugh! A many of you know I have the nicknames of cranny grammy and nookworm... 

P.S. I dusted a little today! Yay!


  1. I dusted today too! It's nice when you can give a "shout out" to a local business or service that does a good job!

  2. I'll join you for the bread & gravy, but you can have my share of spinach. Hope the leak is fixed for good this time around!!

  3. The Joy of the 'Happy Homeowner'!!! It's always something!

    Sometimes I thing the renting route, makes more sense.
