Yesterday April and I went shopping and then I made her dinner for her belated birthday. We hit Joann's, Savers, the new Hobby Lobby on Bell, Big Lots (make sure you ask her about the friendly cashier there) and ate lunch at 5&Diner. I found Hello Kitty fabric at both Joann's and Hobby Lobby and some ribbon at HL as well.
Dinner was at April's house because living in an apartment SUCKS! The kitchen is small and the stove only has one big burner. One CANNOT make nefflies with only one big burner, it just doesn't work. Although as it turns out, I only needed one burner, but the grills at the complex SUCK! I tried grilling hamburgers one night and it took almost an hour to cook them. So I needed a larger kitchen and access to an efficient grill............. It's difficult to describe what exactly nefflies are. My mother-in-law made them so the dish is either German or Polish in origin (she was German but learned to cook from a Polish neighbor/friend). They are an egg dumpling (similar to spaetzle only much larger), boiled, rinsed, and then fried with butter, onion, and bacon. This isn't exactly how she made them (mine are better!), through the years I have tweeked the recipe. It's one of the dishes both kids ask for me to cook.
Did I mention that the apartment and the complex SUCK? Only once or twice so far? I won't even go into how I HAVE SCRAPBOOK PAPER AND SCHOOL PICTURES THAT ARE SOAKING WET BECAUSE THE GARAGE I AM PAYING EXTRA FOR LEAKS! Does management care? Only if other tenants are in the office.............. so when I leave I am placing a large sign on the garage door saying that it leaks!
So, my project today is to rescue as many pics as possible and cut off the sodden parts of my scrapbook papers that are all over my tiny living room.
