Those are the words we learned to Taps. Sun has been gone quite a while. Today I went to herbal class, hubby dropped me off. I got home earlier than expected. I walked home, because he had not come back for me yet. We ate left over casserole for lunch, then went shopping. We needed to make a run to Sam's Club. Little did I know what we were getting into. Big Sales Event. Lowest Prices of the Season. Packed out parking lot, crowded store with tons of food samples. I did not partake. We went to Newton to the Meridian Market because I needed to replenish my herbs and spices. Then to Dillons/Kroger for stuff that we did not find elsewhere. Kwik Trip for gas and home again. Made another meal of leftovers, so we are right on track there. I have a beefy veggie stew in the crockpot for tomorrow. It is time for me to go to bed.

I hope he makes it soon. I saw your post that said he would not come that late. I think it gets hard to get around there.

Someone had insisted hubby bring home some okra that was a bit over grown. I learned a couple of years ago to cook okra with tomatoes to keep it from being slimy. This all cooked down with bell pepper, garlic and onion as well. Lots of finely chopped beef purchased at Wal Mart that I think was intended for a Mexican dish. So it was not quite a chili, but had some of the same aspects. We had it again tonight, served over a baked potato.

After going to all those places I would have felt that tired too. I love to come back with something that I am looking for but in most cases I don´t as eithe rthe Shop has closed or they just don´t sell things anymore.

They had some but not all of the spices I wanted. When I run out of other options I order things online.

@GardenGerty Good to be able to do that as I know you do a lot of cooking and you need all those things. I have not found one bag of decent flour yet as I want to make my own cakes and biscuits again because of the oil they use to make them here not keen on that at all.

This is a class about healthy eating as well as how to make healing remedies. I like both aspect. I am one of those who would prefer to eat tasty food. Due to questions asked in October our leader is learning about curries and sharing with us now. She often reminds us that our health comes from our gut.

@GardenGerty yes indeed as much as 70% of our natural immunity is housed in the gut area of the body -- sounds like a very exciting class
