Made Grandma's beef and noodles tonight. It's a nostalgia thing. I grew up on her beef and noodles and nothing pleased me more than to come for a visit and have her fix them for supper.

Simple recipe. You mix cooked egg noodles, a 12 oz. can of roast beef with gravy (I used Hormel), and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Sour cream is optional (and I would've added some, if I had it). I'm discovering now just how simple many of her recipes are. I added some onion powder and fresh cracked pepper, but I used the low sodium soup, and I could've added some salt. She always served biscuits with beef and noodles, but I made crescent rolls.

Hit the spot. Lance just ate some leftover pizza, but there are plenty of noodles left for him to eat for dinner tomorrow.

I now have a pair of appropriate and practical winter boots. And of course, I bought a new winter coat a few weeks back. Now I just need a good pair of Thinsulate gloves (I was looking at some at Target today - going to ask for them for Christmas), some extra thick socks (to wear with said boots), and a Thinsulate headband (I don't like hats too much), and I'll be good to go. I have a lot of knitwear, which is fine for when it's chilly. But when it's super cold, I want something a bit warmer.

Once I'm totally unemployed in a few days (or, to be more precise, employed in the task of moving), I'll have a chance to get caught up on movies when I'm taking a break from doing inventories and sorting through things. I checked this morning, and Netflix actually has Gosford Park. Being the obsessed Downton Abbey fan that I am, I really should watch it, because Julian Fellowes wrote both and the fabulous Maggie Smith stars in both. And there are a lot if similarities between the two. I think I'll do this on Monday during the day, because I want a few days to relax before things start to get super hectic after Thanksgiving.
