Judie, Kellie, and Geri head for the B2B Conference in Nashville

100_2547 Boy, has this been a long day.  We left Occoquan and 5:30 am and arrived in Nashville around 4pm.  The drive went smoothly, but we are tired.  We checked into the lovely Renaissance Nashville Hotel, had dinner at Panera Bread down the street, and checked into the conference.

Judie is getting over bronchitis and went right to sleep while Kellie and I hit the exercise room to work off all the on-the-road snacking.  Can’t wait to begin the conference in the morning and see all the wonderful, new machines and software.

Here is a photo of the famous Ryman Theater (where the Country music all began) across the street from our hotel.

Here’s a link to a video of our day. Just click on the blue link below.

B2B Monday

Here’s the address to copy and paste in your address line in case the one above doesn’t work.

Check back again tomorrow evening and I will submit another video.

See ya–Geri

Sewers Stroganoff

Here is a great recipe for beef stroganoff . You will need one can onion soup, one pound ground beef, sour cream (about 2 cups),egg noodles.

Brown the ground beef until it is cooked add the can of Campbell”s Onion Soup simmer for 5 minutes and then add the sour cream.How much sour cream can be up to your taste. Add salt and pepper and I like to add cornstarch to thicken ( one tablespoon)

I like to make sure that I have placed the pan of hot water on the stove top to get it boiling for the noodles before I start to brown the ground beef, that way the water is boiling by the time I have finished the dish and it takes only 8 minutes for the egg noodles to finish cooking. This dinner is ready in less than 30 min
