A Colder Friday Night Conversations

This is getting more like it. Actually had to pull up a blanket last night. I do know some got a lot of rain and wind. Hope everyone is ok. It's rained here enough to keep the dust down.

What's for supper? Undecided but have some ground beef I need to do something with other than hamburgers. Any suggestions all ears.

Something I meant to post about a little bit ago. Did anyone catch the county music documentary on PBS?
It is another well done one by Ken Burns. I think it was 8 night, 2 hours each but didn't seem like it and didn't even cover the last 25 years. If so what did you think and what did you learn?

What are your plans for the weekend? Looking back I think this is how they started. Some cold Friday night.

Anyone seen the Joker? I am not huge fan of the super hero DC/Marvel movies. What about you.

This is one I am interested in seeing. Remington looked exactly like that on his way home.

Happy Friday!! Yep cooler temps are greatly appreciated here! Did get some rain, just enough to wet the ground good but not get sloppy.

Supper tonight is a few things... making the trout that was caught a month ago... and some leftover cabbage rolls. For you what about spaghetti? or Tacos? ORRR a skillet casserole? Like skillet lasagna? That's easy to make....

Didn't see the documentary on PBS darn it... sounds like a good one.

For the weekend just work around the house, have a friend coming in and we are going to head to the beach for a week to chill. So no horse time .

Haven't seen the Joker... or any of the other Marvel movies, just don't go to many movies and the extra loud violent ones I stay away from.. Well and the extra sad ones especially with animals! So will wait for that Racing in the Rain till I can watch it at home, don't want to disturb other movie goers with my blubbering! lol

Thanks for the suggestions. I can get in a rut sometimes. Broke out of it with seafood last weekend. Hard to believe it's been a week.

Is it just me or does time seem to go faster?
Iím not mentally prepared for winter, Iíd only just got used to summer!

My cousinís American wife is heading to the UK in 3 weeks to start a new life with him over there. Sheís going to find the difference in an Alabama winter and a UK one as big a shock as we found the difference between a UK winter and a CT one!

Just winging it is not a plan

We are actually getting decent temps now. More seasonal and 'fall like' then straight into winter like last week. I am hoping to get a couple rides in this week as I may not be able to week next week.

I go in for eye surgery on Tuesday - took a branch to the face in our last endurance ride and apparently the damage is bad enough I need surgery.

If I had ground beef out right now I would probably make hamburger soup. My favorite!! We just got all the veggies from the garden cleaned and put in bags, so there are copious amounts of carrots and parsnips to use up.

Dinner for me tonight - I might have breakfast. I get cravings for eggs so normally have them for supper once a week.

I think I read the book "the art of racing in the rain". I will probably see the movie too - but I will watch it at home so no one can see how much of a mess I am.

1# Hamburg - brown & crumble in frying pan first. Drain grease.
1 can tomato soup.
1 can CUT green beans - somehow French style don't taste as good in this, lol
Chopped onion to your taste.
Plain salt or garlic salt to taste.
Pepper to taste.

Mix all in casserole dish with lid.
Bake covered one hour at 325 in oven.
Option is to put a ring of mashed potatoes (instant Idaho mashed work well:) on top, in the last several minutes and sprinkle cheddar cheese over top, until lightly brown.

Add a fresh loaf of Italian bread and some butter at the table, your favorite beverage and there's a quick supper everyone should enjoy. It's always better the next day; DH always takes what's left for lunch at work, lol

Another easy hamburger recipe my b/f loves...it's best cooked over a fire, but super easy on the stove top too.

Brown 1lb of ground beef. Add onion, jalapenos...garlic...whatever you like.

Cook a box of KD (i think you call it mac & cheese).

Add cooked mac & cheese and a can of chopped tomatoes to the beef. Let it simmer. Then eat. I usually add a dash of liquid smoke to it when cooking on stove top to get that smoky taste we like.

We are supposed to get rain all-day tomorrow with a slight chance of snow. I spent today throwing a quick hot wire fence up at the house we bought here in Idaho so I can bring the horses home from Nevada the beginning of next week.
Since the weather is going to be bad this weekend I'll finish painting the kitchen, cleaning and unpacking what stuff I have moved up here away before I bring another load. Hubby has been busy trucking and a funeral this weekend but he will be back through to move the big stuff loaded and the other truck, pickups and trailers up here.

This is our first time buying a home even though we are in our 40's. The buying process was stressful and so is this move. It's only couple hours away but I'm excited for the new opportunities that come with it! I'll be closer to the trainer I ride with and my filly who is in training. :)

Dinner: I went grocery shopping this morning but leftover tater tot casserole will probably be for dinner.
I love soups so I will probably try making a Butternut Squash soup tomorrow.
I found a KitchenAid professional mixer on a local sale page for $150 with some attachments(dough hook, mixer, paddle and spiralizer/peel more and slicer) thought I might make something fun with it.

I haven't seen the PBS documentary on country music hopefully they will replay it? I've been watching some PBS lately as I haven't had the internet hooked up out here. Been watching TV the old fashioned way via the antenna!

Hey @aubie ! Good to "see" you again.

Supper... veggie burgers, fries with mushroom gravy, and kale salad. Yes, I know we're food nerds. My daughter is now pretty much vegan, and I'm happy to eat what she eats. The guys are at football (my son's team is killing it!) so it's just us. We're both really sick, and decided it was best to stay in. We watched "Jack and Jill". Not a great movie, but mildly entertaining. So hard finding good movies I can watch with my 14 year old.

The weather here is surprisingly nice. This is our "Indian summer". Highs in the mid teens (celcius), lows mostly above freezing. There are still carrots, kale, and swiss chard growing in the garden. The leaves got blown off the trees pretty well a couple of days ago, after a wind/rain storm, but some are still hanging on. Not winter here yet.

Photo from last Wednesday night, me off on a trail with my trusty Rusty. LOVE that horse.
