Another cloudy cold day here in Scranton, this morning I noticed one of my prescriptions was down to about 6 pills, it is for Metoprolo which I take one at supper each evening and it is to prevent my diabetes prescription from doing damage to my kidneys. A pill to keep another pill from killing you, makes sense to me. Anyway in my home area of St Charles County MO. there is a Walgreens on every corner just about. I know of 4 within 3 miles of the house, 2 in O’Fallon, 1 in Lake St Louis and 1 in Wentzville. Anyway Scranton has one, it is about as far on the other side of town as you can get. CVS is the dominant drug store out here with about the same ratio as we have in Walgreens. So off I go about 11:00am to refill this scrip. as soon as I got there the girl said We will have to call your doctor, I said it says two more refills right on the bottle, well it did, but it said before 10-19-10 and it is now Nov. I said I’ll walk around the store, while you do that, an hour later I get paged and the same girl says I left a voicemail and they haven’t called back yet, do you want us to text you when it is ready, I said okay I will go get some lunch and check back, still unwilling to admit more than one trip would be needed. I went to lunch, read the paper and after about another hour, it was 01:30pm I went back to check still, no call back. I asked her to call and leave another message, I am now home at 05:00PM and have received two text messages saying my prescription is still not filled, Glad I had enough for six days as it looks like it will take that long to fill it.
Tonight we are having a pot roast, no not a marijuana roast, a beef pot roast with mashed potatoes, gravy, and vegetables. Boy that one will be a tough act to follow tomorrow.
Pot Roast ready to fall apart.
The smells alone in the kitchen make your mouth water, That’s about it for today. Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.
Hi Everyone its Donna
It's that time of the year, fire up the ovens on the cool autumn days. Here's a quick and easy
recipe I thought you would enjoy.
1 cup oil 1 tsp baking soda
4 eggs 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups canned pumpkin 2 cups flour
Cream oil,, eggs, sugar. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well
Pour into 15x10 ungreased jelly roll pan
Bake 20 25 minutes at 350
3 oz cream cheese 6 tbls margarine
1 teaspoon milk 1 tsp vanilla
2 cups confections sugar
Cream all together, I generally cream the cheese and margarine then add the others
Spread on cooled bars.
You can substitute applesauce and works just as well
You can also pour batter into large muffin pans and make muffins and w/o the icing
(or with depending on how you like your sweets) makes a great morning treat w/ coffee.
