Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle it Tuesday (Making Housework Bloggable) is a meme hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.

This weekend, I tackled the Thanksgiving leftovers and the appliances. My husband's aunt must have sent home a dozen containers of food, mostly things no one wanted such as brussel sprouts, onions, and sweet potatoes and a few things I couldn't even recognize, plus the leftover cornbread dressing I made to take to my mom's, not to mention black olives, turkey, and cranberry sauce. So, I gave the refrigerator a good cleaning and got rid of all the leftovers before they had time to start growing mold.

My daughter decided to make a fresh apple pie for Thanksgiving (and did a fine job!), but she forgot to put a cookie sheet under it, and it dripped in the oven. Thankfully, it has a self-cleaner. After that, the outside of the appliances needed sprucing up, so they got a good dose of stainless steel cleaner. It felt good to get this done!
What did you tackle this week?


  1. Wow! You were busy with all your tackling! :o)

    I made Turkey Tetrazzini with my leftovers. Since I hosted Thanksgiving this year, my house already had a good scrub-down. I just had to clean up after everyone left. I does feel good to have an orderly home and shiny appliances. Thanks for sharing. Happy Tuesday! :o)
