Argh….insomnia again.  They increased my predisone due to my cold, which always messes with my sleep.  Argh….I am up early!   I am going shopping this morning at 9:00 or so with my SIL.   I need to get some jeans and they are having 50% off at Marshall Fields.   So I hope to find apair of jeans.  

I was feeling better yesterday and made it through Thanksgiving meal.   We had the usuals and tried a new potato recipe that everyone loved!   It will be used again!

Party Potatoes**

  • 5 lbs. baking potatoes
  • 2 (3 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp. Adobo
  • Paprika for garnish

Peel potatoes and cut into 1 inch cubes. Cook in boiling water until tender and drain. In a large mixing bowl, combine potatoes and all ingredients except paprika. Beat at medium speed until smooth and fluffy, but leaving a few lumps is fine. Do not overbeat or they will not have enough form. Spoon into a greased baking dish. You may refrigerate for up to 2 days before cooking. When ready to bake, set cold potatoes on the counter for 30 minutes, then bake at 325° for 50 minutes. When done, put a pat of butter on top and sprinkle with paprika before serving.

We had four extra guests for Thanksgiving meal.   Then the Miller family came over to visit after supper.   All five of them!    I talked to my nephew Joe and his roommate is an electrician and is willing to come over and do a few projects for us.   We are needing to separate Josh and Erik and give each of them a bedroom.  So we will be moving the computers to the basement, but need outlets put in,etc.   We would love to have this project done by Christmas.  Then when we get a few more bills paid off my nephew, who is a carpenter, said he would finish the basement for us.   That will be a few years before we are ready for that project.   But it will be nice to get the electricity done! 

Then after the Miller’s left, the Mathisens came over.  We hung out and played Apples to Apples with Grandma and Grampie.  We stayed up until about 11:00 and then were so tired!    I am starting to get a bit sleeping, I think I will take a little nap before I call my SIL and tell her I am ready to go shopping!  

Have a great day!  I think now that I am finally feeling better, I might take Tommy to the movie.
