Tuesday, April 15, 2014 Ft. Hood RV Park, Ft. Hood, Texas

We have a busy day ahead of us this morning!

Dean decided he wanted to go eat breakfast today rather than our normal Special K here at home!  Yea!  We weren't sure where to go so I Googled breakfasts in Killeen, Texas.  Found a website where a number of restaurants serving breakfast were listed.  Hallmark Restaurant sounded good and it was fairly close so we headed there at about 8:30.  They have a number of skillet dinners that sounded very good and we were really tempted; but since we seem to be getting more frugal with our money all the time, we went with the special for the day.  For $3.99 we had 3 pieces of bacon, two eggs, home fries and a nice big biscuit.  What a deal!  It was pretty good.  All in all our breakfast was less than $11 and we were quite full!

Next on the list was laundry.  Fortunately a Laundromat was very close.  We spent the next two hours getting that chore out of the way.   We were able to check our emails and Facebook in between washing and drying chores, so the time went fairly quick.

A stop at O'Reilly's to purchase some exhaust fluid for the truck and then our final stop at Walmart for a few groceries, Fish Oil and some birthday cards.  We headed back to the RV.  By then it was almost noon.  We made some sandwiches and ate some of the corn dip left over from the pot-luck dinner at the rally. 

We invited Matt & Megan over for dinner tonight as they have not yet seen the RV (at least the inside - Megan did see the outside yesterday).  I made chicken and rice which I knew was one of Matt's favorites so I had to get the chicken and sauce in the crock pot.  We rounded that off with brown rice and a salad with some add-in's of tomato, avocado, hard boiled egg, cranberries, walnuts and Parmesan cheese.  I decided to make an apple crisp for dessert.  We still have a little ice cream left over from our dinner with Larry & Verna that I want to get used up.  They arrived at about 5:30 and after a tour of Bentley we set down to dinner.  We had a nice evening catching up.  Matt's ceremony as outgoing commander is tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.  We will go by and pick up Megan and drive to Matt's headquarters where the ceremony will be held.  They left about 9:15 or so and we headed to bed soon after that.

More tomorrow!
