Quiet Tuesday

I didn't have to watch my three grandchildren today. It was actually a nice break. My house stayed clean all day, the house was quiet and I didn't have to rush around. I went to CVS and the grocery store. I needed some ice at the grocery store. Our ice maker is not working in our fridge so I have been buying bags of ice and putting it in the ice container thingie in the freezer. When I got back from the store I was going to start dinner when Keith told me not to cook that he had a gift card to Hardee's so we had Hardee's for dinner. Not very healthy, but it was really good. I had the Mushroom Swiss Burger, I hadn't had one of those in a long time, it was very good.

I am now waiting on my pasta to cool so I can mix up some pasta salad for tomorrow nights dinner. I went out to our little garden to pick a few tomatoes and there wasn't any there that wasn't rotten or had these big ugly worms on them. :( We will be having pasta salad without tomatoes. I use the recipe my niece Angie gave me, it is so easy and so good. Pasta (I use either the bow tie or garden rotini pasta), cucumbers, green onions, tomatoes, black olives, shredded cheddar cheese, Itailan dressing, I add a few handfuls of bacon bits I don't recall that being on the recipe Angie gave me, it might have been but I've long since lost the recipe I wrote down.

I hope everyone had a good Tuesday!

How often do you watch your grandkiddies?
I've never been to a Hardees before. Are they local? I don't think I've seen one anywhere I've lived. Mushroom swiss sounds good. I made burgers last night with some Angus beef and some yummy jalapeno buns I buy at a local store here. They are good! Your pasta salad sounds similiar to what I make. Sorry to hear about your tomatoes though. They are good in pasta salad.

I normally watch my grandchildren 5 days a week Mon-Fri.
Here is the Hardee's website and locator website: http://www.hardees.com/home/
http://cke.know-where.com/hardees/ I think but am not sure they are called Carl's Jr. in Calf. and a few other states to the west. I looked at the Carl's Jr. website and their menu and and the website is just like the Hardee's website. I think most of hardee's burgers are Angus beef, but I'm not 100% sure. Your jalapeƱo buns sound good, we don't have those here.
I'm just sick about my tomatoes we were getting a lot at one point now I guess we will have to dig everything up and wait for next spring to plant. :(
