Scrapbooking and Weekly Menu

Once a year me, Amy, Kirsten, Jen, Lili, my friend Sue and my friend Cathy get together for a scrapbooking day put on by the Ladies Auxiliary of the FOP Lodge 124.  We have been doing this for about 8 years now.  As soon as Lil got old enough she started joining us.  This year Jen and Lil are not going to be able to attend because they have a baby shower to attend for Jen's niece. The first year we were preparing to celebrate my folks 70th Wedding Anniversary so Amy and I made all the invitations for their party.  The next couple of years I scrapbooked my exchange students journey in America and then for the last few years I have made my Christmas cards.  This is no small feat, I send out over 100 cards each year. This is the card I will be making this year.

While we are out scrapbooking, Frank is having a shooting class. So I will provide lunch for 10 to be served while I am gone.  I chose to have sloppy joes because they are quick, easy and I can make them the night before. All Frank has to do is plug in the crockpot a few hours before he wants to serve lunch. 

Sloppy Joes

4 lbs. ground beef
1 onion
4 cloves garlic
3 cans of chicken gumbo soup
1 c catsup
2 T. mustard
4 dashes hot sauce
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Worcestershire sauce

Brown ground beef with onion and garlic.  Place in slow cooker.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Cook on low for 3-4 hrs.  Print Recipe

This recipe will make enough for 12-16 servings.  It freezes very well.

Tomorrow I have a Painting Class with Kirsten so Frank and John will be meeting us out for dinner afterwards.

Dawn is keeping Mom on Tuesday instead of  Monday so Frank and I get a date night.
