A Little Bit of Random-ness

Justin had to work on Valentine's Day. Mindy surprised him with the breakfast before sending him off. Isn't this what we all do when our husbands have to work on Valentine's Day? Oh, to be newlyweds again. sigh...
Of course, knowing Mindy, this was planned far ahead. I'm sure she had to hunt for the heart shaped cookie cutter. She probably saw the heart-folded bacon on Pinterest.

This is the best packaged chicken salad that I've ever had. It almost beats The Picnic's chicken salad---the best in town. It has pecans and cranberries.
You can find it at Costco. We don't belong there, so Connie gets it for me---it's pretty big, so we usually split it. Pair it with Sister Shubert rolls and a "congealed" salad. Mindy hates that word---coming from St. Louis, we said "Jello" salads---southerners say "congealed".

This is the best green onion dip. I supply St. Louis family with it since you can only find it at Krogers here. It's cheap too---75 cents.
While on our sister's crop, we went to a seafood buffet. The food wasn't all that good. I mean, come on--what did I think I was going to get---fresh seafood in the middle of Kentucky for $13.99? I did snap this picture of Jeanne eating frog legs. We had to eat them as kids, but I don't remember if I liked them or not. I was going to give them a try, but they came in pairs. That sort of freaked me out. They look exactly like frogs legs.

Speaking of Sister Shubert rolls, that seafood buffet had them---only in miniature. I've never seen little ones. Very cute.

I can't say I've seen a line of birds on the stoplight pole in a very long time. They made me smile.

So proud of Mitchell for making the Dean's List!!! He's smart and dedicated! We love that! In fact, we are very happy that our grandchildren appreciate their educations and are not wasting our money!!
Despite what it looks like, Butch said it was a crappy fishing trip. He and his brother are never paying for fishing guides again! They haven't had very good luck with their fishing trips. They are just going to play golf instead! They did enjoy the Daytona 500. They've been going for about 20 years or more.

That's about it for my random pictures this week. Wishing you a week of fun random stuff!

  1. Not true . . . I've never called anything a congealed salad in my life! LOL But I love jello salad in lots of varieties! :) [In fact, I don't know of anyone who calls them "congealed" - maybe it's a Tennessee thing?]

    Fun bits of randomness today!

  2. I've never heard of congealed salads too. Jello salads don't happen here in the uk. You do get some things in aspic but they're considered old fashioned.

  3. Folding bacon into a heart is true love! And yes please to Jello salad, no to "congealed". And congrats to the Dean's List honoree.
