Day 4................

The electrician was the only one here today.  He will be back Monday along with the crew to insulate the walls and the contractor crew.  I was wishing the insulating people would have been here last night to keep the house a bit warmer.  There was a strong SW wind blowing and that is the end of  the house we are working on. The wall of plastic was moving right along with the draft.It was toasty in the rest of the house though!!  It's much better tonight.  Thank goodness.

Here is a picture of the floor that is in the entire downstairs of our house except the kitchen and utility room.  It is about 2" wide oak laid at an angle.  I suppose it could be very pretty, but it  just isn't our taste. I'm sure many think we are crazy, but I guess you like what you like.

Last night's supper was another new crock pot recipe.  It too was very good.  Kinda scary as I am 3 for 3 so far. 

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Barbecue

3 pounds ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
5 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 t pepper
1 T cider vinegar
2 T mustard
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 1/2 cups ketchup

Brown ground beef in skillet, drain grease.  Place the cooked meat, onion, garlic, celery, salt, pepper, cider vinegar, mustard, brown sugar, and ketchup into a slow cooker.  Stir to combine.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 
Can be used on buns, hot dogs, nachos.  I like it better than sloppy joes!! 

I'm sure I'll take the next couple of days off since there won't be any construction happening. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
