Later in the morning, when I entered my sewing room, I decided it was time for a little reorganization. The cabinet on the right which was totally crammed with fabric, needs to be moved to another wall. Not a cheap piece of furniture ... this things weighs a TON!!! The top section comes off, but I still need two big men and a boy to move it. Maybe I can call a moving company.
Since I'm dropping ice cream from my menus, I'm replacing it with one cookie after dinner. I've got a terrible sweet tooth!! Now THESE are peanut butter cookies you can wrap your mouth around!! Can you believe it?? I didn't burn a SINGLE batch. At least it kept me busy for a couple of hours and all but one ended up in the freezer! Okay, maybe two!!
Finally, it was time to pull the corned beef out of the crockpot. WOW did it shrink up or what!! I sliced it and took my first bite. Guess I can go fill in that hole I dug. Although the ends were a little dry, it was YUMMY!! I must have eaten three pieces before I even sat down to dinner. No cabbage or potatoes, but the brussel sprouts I cooked the day before went perfectly with it. I think this is the first corned beef I've ever cooked and I'm so proud it's edible!!
I was too lazy yesterday to go anywhere, so my long list is still awaiting attention. I added potatoes to the grocery list, as corned beef hash is one of my favorites!! Never cooked that before either, but I can't wait to give it a try. I have almost four pounds of meat to eat up!!
