Menu Monday and some new friends!

It's here this week! So, I am settling in and making some warm dishes using my beloved crockpot.

Monday: Crockpot BBQ Chicken served with fresh green beans
Tuesday: Crockpot Hobo Dinner - absolutely delicious and I don't really care for cabbage
Wednesday: leftovers
Thursday: spaghetti
Friday: Roast in the crockpot

Guess what I did Friday? Dawn at Dawn's Diversions orchestrated a get together at a local restaurant (Fox and the Hound) for OK bloggers and at the very last minute I decided to go. I had the best time! Conversations about our favorite blogs, ideas for topics to post about and even some neat give-away ideas filled the air. Many new relationships were formed. My hubby thought I was nuts running off to meet strangers, but as you can see they were just the sweetest ladies and I enjoyed getting to meet all of them!

The whole bunch - a beautiful group of girls!

Here I am with Georgie at Decisionally Challenged and Dawn. I sat next to these 2 ladies and really enjoyed their company. It was such a great evening!

That was so much fun on Friday, wasn't it? I'm sorry I didn't get to chat much with you, but maybe at the next one. Meanwhile, I'll have to check out those recipes.

Hey Sassy,

I love your new banner! It is new, isn't it? Thanks for the dinner ideas. Now I'm craving spaghetti...which is unusual for me.

Shannon said...

How fun!!! I wish I could do something like this!

Love the new blog banner : )
Great meals using the crockpot!
What would we do w/o one?!?
I'm going to out "your way" next week so we should plan a playdate!

Sarah said...

I'm a crockpot girl too!! It was so good to met you on Friday. I love your blog.

It sounds like you had so much fun! How wonderful that you were able to get together with all these fellow bloggers.

Enjoy your crockpot! :)

niartist said...

Denise said...

what a fun idea and gathering.

Darlene said...

Ooooo I wish I had known about the Okie blogger get together. Is that restaurant in the OKC area? I'm not familiar with it.

I hope you are staying safe and warm during our ice storm!

The Southern Housewife said...

How fun! Isn't blogging sort of closing the gap on the amount of strangers in the world. Seems like now you know someone through a friend of a friend of her blogger's readers or something like that! Love meeting new people. :)

Jill of All Trades said...

I wish I could have attended. Maybe next time.

♥georgie♥ said...

it was great visiting with you too!!! cant wait till our next gettogether

duchess said...

That all sounds good - I love anything I can fix in the crock pot. I have something for you if you'd like to pick it up.
Hope you're having a good Wednesday.

Sarah said...

ha! I did that once to. She was visiting family here in Dallas and she was from Chicago. I met a fellow blogger at the Galleria to eat lunch and take both of our girls ice skating. Wes thought I was nuts spending an afternoon with someone I didn't know...much less making Addie spend the day with a little girl she had never met as well. Ha!!!
Glad you had fun! Probably made some new friends!

Dawn said...

Somehow I haven't added you to my blog list yet. Yikes! I'm going to do that RIGHT now!:)

Melinda said...

It was so nice meeting you last Friday! Maybe next time we can talk a little more.

**** April **** said...

Hey chicka! Long time no talk to! :) Do you ever go to Canton? Let me know if you do...or know of any other places to get great deals!?! Do do you The Grocery Game? Landy swears by it... I joined...we'll see! :) I just started doing the Menu Planning Monday. What a great concept! Love ya sister! Miss ya.

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
