Baked potato and tossed green salad. I'm getting a new gas range tomorrow! I'm sick of this electric clunker.

7. bravo, you!

I am so happy with my new gas range. You will be thrilled to be "cookin' with gas!" Let us know how the installation went!

I might take a pic and put it up some time this week.

10. Take a picture of yours!

I'm so excited. We bought our first house (40 years married) in July of 2018 with a grant from the Cherokee Nation (I'm a member). The appliances were crap, we had to replace the refrigerator immediately, but the Cherokees also have a program to encourage folks to save up for the big things you want for your home. You get two years to save $1,000 and if you do they will match it with another $3K for home improvements. They are big on financial education, so in addition you are required to get multiple bids, take two financial knowledge tests to qualify. It's such a good program. You just get a soft second mortgage on your home that is forgiven in five years if you are making your mortgage payments.

Sorry for running on--I just feel so lucky today!

8. Lazy Sunday

I cooked half a pork shoulder in my Instant Pot to make Mojo Pork. Shredded the meat, and we had it as nachos with tomato, queso and avocado. My dessert was a margarita ....

Half a pork shoulder, probably 3.5 lbs after trimming as much fat as I could, yielded enough meat for 3 more meals for the 3 of us. And this was bone in. I still have the other half in my freezer, not sure what I'll do with it.
