Tuesday night=Date Night

Charlie and I had an impromptu date night this past Tuesday. Beth was at work, and Trevlyn spent the night with a friend so we had the house to ourselves. I already had a meal planned and since it was Charlie's favorite we decided to just stay home & enjoy the quiet house!

To my surprise Charlie brought me flowers. 5 dozen roses wouldn't have pleased me more! This is the first time he's brought me flowers in...well, I can't even remember!

Aren't all the different colors beautiful?

This is my favorite flower in the bunch. I don't know what it is called, but it was really pretty.

Our meal wasn't fancy, just Meatloaf, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Creamed Corn.

Then I made Honey Oatmeal Wheat Bread in my new Breadmachine. It is really really good bread! This is the 2nd loaf of bread that I've made. The first was just a basic white bread. The picture is of about 1/2 of the loaf already sliced. I am hoping to make 1 loaf of bread a week to supplement our bread intake. Charlie eats a sandwich every day for lunch, and I was hoping by making homemade bread that it will get some of the preservatives out of his system. He has had a few health problems over the last few months so I am trying everything that I can to make him feel better.
I don't have a picture of my breadmachine because I simply forgot to take one. I purchased the breadmachine at Goodwill for $4.20. It makes 1, 1 1/2, & 2 lb loafs. It has so many different settings that I had to print the manual from the on-line website just so I would know how to use it. So far though I could say that I've gotten my money's worth, wouldn't you?
Sorry if my pictures are blurry. My computer is still broken. I took the pictures with my cell phone then emailed them from my cell to my personal email. Today, I uploaded them, while at work but on my lunch break, from my personal email to blogger! I hope to have my computer repaired this weekend.

Now this is precious. I need a date night. I guess our fishing trips are our date nights! ha! I will try to answer those questions soon. I want to do it but like everything else in my life, I am late!

I'm with Charlie, meat loaf and mashed potatoes is one of my favorite meal also. It sounds like fun to me just relaxing at home with your sweetie and that was great that he brought you flowers.
