  • 2019 October 18 Friday in Liberty Hill, Texas
Above is what morning is like in or Texas home today.

Below is what our friends in Iowa woke to today. Not much difference, until you notice the wind warning.

Before leaving home I made 4 hamburger patties and froze them. I also mixed a meatloaf and put it in the refrigerator to cook later. Since there is just the two of us, I used around 1 pound of ground chuck, 6 crushed saltine crackers, 2 eggs, 1/4 cup of ketchup, 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning, and 1 small shredded russet potato. I didn’t add salt because of the salt on the crackers. Also, normally I would have used a carrot rather than the potato, but I had none. The ingredients were mixed by hand and placed in a smallish Pyrex bowl with a plastic lid. A mixture of ketchup, brown sugar, and liquid smoke was spread across the loaf.

While we were gone this summer, another donut shop opened in Liberty Hill. Ella had an apple fritter. I had a crosant with sauge, egg, cheese, and jalapeno. My sandwich was warmed in the microwave, which may be why the croissant was like chewing leather. I’m willing to try them again without microwaving. Ella commented that she liked the fritters at Donut Palace better. I agree. I’ve be never regretted anything purchased at Donut Palace.

We went to the Georgetown senior center today. There were only a handful of people there and not all stayed for lunch. Lunch was a chef salad, which may be why so few people were there.

It was 79° outside and 84° inside when we arrived home. We opened windows and door. With the fans going, it cooled a lot. Still not as nice as outside though.

For supper i cooked the meatloaf in the Instapot. And baked potatoes in the microwave. We set up a TV tray on the deck and ate outside where it was cooler.

God bless and g’nite.
