Each year I make a decent number of Christmas gifts. Some years are more elaborate than others and sometimes everyone gets something handmade and other years just a few people. Sometimes I make a huge variety of items and some years it’s just a lot of one or two ideas.
I’ve been tired of the same old, same old for lunch lately. I’ve gotten stuck in a rut having the same thing over and over. The kids don’t seem to mind, but I do! Also, I’m really looking for GOOD food and I’m just stora eating lunch to get me through til dinner, but not(…)
Two week ago we celebrated Thanksgiving with our Bible study and we were in charge of the turkey. I cooked a 27lb bird for 16 adults and 18 kids… we ended up with LOTS of leftovers! I’m not complaining! We had some for dinner that week and I froze some for future use!
I couldn’t post this on Thursday or before since I hadn’t made it and didn’t know exactly what I was going to make too far in advance! However… The food was delicious even though I was only responsible for 3 different sides! Thanksgiving foods tend to be traditional in that families have their tried and(…)
I just wanted to post a short and sweet note to wish you a special day filled with joy, thankfulness and family! I know some of you may not be able to spend the day with loved ones who are far away or who are no long with you in this world. As Believers we(…)
I know its been a while since my last post about doTERRA essential oils, so I thought maybe it might be time for another. As we’ve been using them more and more I’ve found more and more uses for them! Amazing how that works!
I know the CSA was last delivered over 2 weeks ago, but I still have some cauliflower left in the fridge… .and I have no idea what to do with it. Usually we just roast it in the oven until it’s tender and the edges are nicely browned. However, for some reason my kids have(…)
Last night I was lacking in inspiration, but was in NEED of a good dinner. Being prego I have no desire to be in the kitchen, but I REALLY want something good to eat and am always on the quest to find what it is. Chicken sounded good, but drumsticks or on the bone with(…)
I love having decor that I can change with the seasons. I don’t want anything too labor intensive but something that makes me smile and helps me enjoy the season even more! I love fall leaves and all the beautiful fall colors that paint the landscape!
So… my very last CSA post is later than usual. To be honest I completely forgot about writing it! You’d think after 19 weeks of posting each Tuesday about the CSA that it would be routine and I wouldn’t think about it anymore! Not so! I forgot!
Sorry not much to say this week. I was out of town to visit my Dad’s side of the family in FL for a long weekend. I wish it was for happier times, but my grandfather passed away last month and we were having a memorial for him. I took Xanthie with me and the(…)
I’ve long missed boxed mac n’ cheese… I know… it’s one of the worst foods in the world for you but it is SO good! All those chemicals, preservatives, fake ingredients and food coloring and I still crave it!
This week my update will be a little shorter and maybe a little sweeter! Since our delivery came a day later than usual it’s kinda thrown off my schedule. I usually type up this email once the boxes have arrived and we get to see what’s inside!
Fall is certainly making it’s entrance! It was in the 30s at night this week and I had to wear a sweater coming out of work last weekend! It’s nice, but kinda sad at the same time. I just need to accept the fact that summer is over and fall is here for the next(…)
