I'm trying to get a few things in on one post. I hope I don't forget anything that I've been thinking of. First of all, tomorrow is the

I'm actually doing some differently from these, I want to try something that I've had in my baking cupboard forever:
I've got to finish dinner, stuffed pork chops and the timer is going off. Time to put the stuffing on, they weren't the really thick ones that you make a pocket in, so I'm just putting the stuffing on top. Mister likes them like that.
I'll be back, I got two surprises in the mail today from blogging
