What's Happening Here - Non-Quilty Things

Some of you know that we moved to Michigan from Virginia to help care for some family members.  This past week was a week of helping family, and was a very busy week.  Not much quilting got done, but much was accomplished.  

We helped a nephew find homes for two dogs that he could no longer take care of, and that was very rewarding.   We had prayed for God to provide good homes for each dog, where they would be loved and cared for, and everything fell into place for both dogs.  In the same day!  God is so good!

Another surprising event was on Monday night:

I had been on the road that day for 7 hours total, taking care of some legal issues with a nephew, and was very tired when I returned home.  Hubby knew that, and when I arrived back home, I told him I was going to take a quick one hour nap before fixing dinner.  When I woke up, the house smelled so good, that I walked out into the kitchen to find......a casserole!!

I wondered which of my kind neighbors had dropped it off while I was asleep, and hubby informed me that HE HAD MADE IT!!  We have been married for 52 years, and never does he cook!  I mean he grills outside, but the kitchen is not his domain.

Here is the proof:

It was a wonderful surprise, and just made me love him even more, as he knew how tired I was.  He said he didn't have any recipe.....he just made it up!

So here is Lloyd Hansen's "Welcome Home Honey" casserole:  

Mix together in a glass 9 x 12 casserole dish:

2 lengths of Kielbasa (Polish sausage) sliced
5 strips of bacon, cut into pieces (cooked first) 
5 medium potatoes sliced (he left the skins on)
1 large onion, chopped
1 can mushroom soup
4 soup cans of water

Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the top, generously

Bake in the oven for about an hour at 350 degrees.

There will be quilty things posted about next week, but this was too good a serendipity to keep to myself.

I'm so proud of you Lloyd! Can't wait to tell Jeff-- he will beam, I'm sure! What a great gift you gave Judy, who had already outdone herself with giving, too.
