Had lunch at this Quaker Steak and Lube
in Wisconsin yesterday
after attending the knife show.
It brought to mind a lunch date years ago
at another Quaker Steak and Lube
in Cincinnati OH
to meet a dear online forum friend for the first time.
DH & I were blessed to have her show is around town
as we were considering Cincinnati as a possible place to retire!
Thank you, my dear, for that day together.
(You know who you are!)
It was so wonderful to meet you (and your husband) in person!

Today DH & I celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary
with a road trip to our fave BnB...
here's some pix from our lovely room.
Dinner and breakfast were divine!
Thank you Monika and Jeff!
You always make us feel so welcome
in your lovely home.
It's beginning to feel like
our home away from home.

After making some shamrock cookies
for mommy and daddy
using Sesame Street's Cookie Monster recipe,
the girls decorated them with frosting and sprinkles.
Then we went to the park to wear off some energy!
The snow from several days ago is all melted.

I haven't made meatloaf for over 40 years
because as a new bride, my DH told me
that he didn't like meatloaf,
so I quit making it.
Watching a chef make meatloaf on a cooking show on TV today
my DH asked me why I never make meatloaf.
I reminded him of his comment many years ago
and he said, "I meant I don't like other people's meatloaf
and meatballs, because you never know what they put in them!
I trust you though, and would eat yours."
So after all these years, we decided to make some meatloaf, together.
We used Ina's recipe.
It was delicious!
Guess I can add meatloaf to our dinner rotation again!

After showing the children how he puts on his special clothes,
the fire fighter showed them how he crawls around on the floor
in a house fire looking for people to help
so if you see him, don't hide in a closet or under your bed.
He is there to help take you out of your burning house.
He may look scary, but he is your helper.
Driving a fire truck.
