Wednesday:) What’s Cookin’ Miss Toni?

28 Apr

“When I cook and bake, I love to share with friends and neighbors. You know what’s even better than than? When friends share with me.”

Wow! I had a pretty busy and fun Wednesday. I started off with a beautiful morning and a wonderful breakfast. Then, off to my writing group over at the MillHouse. We had nine talented ladies today, and Melissa Cantu led us in some fun writing activities.

Afterwards, I stopped across the hall to visit Andrea Holmes, artist extraordinaire, in her studio.

She was working on this awesome painting. Her bird paintings are so beautiful, and her murals all over town are well known by all.

After that, I was on my way to my Spanish group when I got a call from our fearless leader, Ubaldo, saying he had to cancel. I’m not sure exactly why because I was driving and he was explaining in Spanish. 🤦‍♀️

Having a little time to kill, I stopped at the Hall Library and visited with an old friend.

This old grandpa has been sitting on this bench and reading to this little boy for many years. I decided to listen too. Then, I made a phone call to my daughter-in-law! Lindsay. Today is her birthday. I totally forgot to send a card. 🤦‍♀️ But, I did remember to call. Happy Birthday Lindsay.

Then, a stop to the thrift store. I’m always on the look out for the perfect unusual bowl for the next Empty Bowls Event. This year’s event is coming up in a couple of weeks. My silent auction bowl is already up to $400. Woo hoo. I didn’t find a bowl, but I did find a fee things that I really didn’t need.

The reason I was killing a little time is, my good friend Helene said that she made me a big pan of chicken enchiladas. She was going to drive way out of her way up to my house and drop them off after her appointment. I said that I could stop by and pick them up on my way home. Save her a long trip.

I forgot to take a picture of the big pan they came in. When I got home, I divided the huge pan into smaller containers to fit in my fridge. (You know my fridge! 🤦‍♀️ No room,) Yum, chicken enchiladas and Spanish rice and chips. You know what I’m having for dinner… for a few days.

Thank you Helene! All I ever make for you is cupcakes and brownies. I need to step it up.

Happy Wednesday, my friends.
