Woke up this morning "freezing cold", just checked the temperature and it's 12 degrees. WHAT?!?!?! That's a bit too cold for my liking, I'm not ready for this, my poor sciatica is having a field day, but you know, who cares???
Lately I've felt like a walking muscle pain, and if it's not that it's a cold or sinus or a headache, I say enough is enough, I've let my guard down the past few weeks and I can see the enemy attacking in full force. So I'm putting my protection back up and grabbing onto the Lord's hand real hard, I know he'll get me through this.
So before I continue, HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone, have a safe and fun day!!!
The kids are ecstatic and already tried their costumes on yesterday, they look soooooo cute. Nicholas is Spiderman and after putting on the costume and the mask he looked at Jasmine and said "I'm spiderman and I'm going to kick someone's butt" LOL OKie dokie!!!
Jasmine is a Glamor Witch and she looks beautiful as always, I LOVE seeing her in big flowing dresses :)
We were sitting at the dinner table last night, eating Pumpkin Soup. YUMMY!!
The kids loved it, but while we were eating, Jasmine was instructing Nicholas on how to eat soup and I just quietly sat in the background listening...it was hilarious, she said, well....this is how it went:
Nicholas - OW it's hot!!!
Jasmine - Nicholas pick up your spoon like this and now get some soup, then blow just like this (she blows on her soup) and then you put it in your mouth and eat it.
Nicholas - (all wobbly trying to hold the spoon and soup without dripping) like this???
Jasmine - Yeah!!! Good boy!!! (here fido here's a treat lol)....now take the napkin and wipe your mouth like this. (she pats the sides of her mouth)
Nicholas - ok Jamine (that's what he calls her)
Jasmine - Good job, you know nicholas that's how rich people wipe their mouths and that's why they have all that money.
LOL HUH?!?!? Ladies and gentlemen, we've been wrong all along, apparently to have a lot of money we just have to wipe our mouths after eating soup. Who knew?!?!?!
Then she sat there and ate and out of the blue:
Jasmine - I'm fancy!!!
LOL I swear my kids crack me up. She's fancy she says, sitting there eating her soup wearing only a tshirt and underwear. That's fancy alright...I just have to look at her and smile, silly girl.
So last week at Jasmine's School Book Fair, I picked up 3 cookbooks for myself. You know me, I love cooking and I have an obsession with Cookbooks. I got Fix it and Enjoy it, Rival Crock Pot Slow Cooker Recipes and Silly Snacks.
I've just finished my menu plan for this week and I'll be trying a few new recipes, can't wait.
Here in a few minutes I have to get Jasmine ready for school, so since I'm feeling a little better and I've missed visiting you all, I'll be heading your way for a quick visit, hope you have some hot coffee ready, these 12 degrees are cutting right through my bones LOL
Susanne had asked me for my recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds, so here it is. You can also add garlic powder, chili flakes or seasoning salt...whatever you want.
Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
2 tsp. melted butter or oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
salt to taste
Preheat oven to 300° F.
While it's O.K. to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds (it adds flavor), clean off any major chunks. Toss pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the melted butter or oil and seasonings of your choice. Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Alright, well I'm off to brave the cold, see you all tomorrow, if I'm not a frozen popsicle.
Last night I made Pumpkin Soup with all the pumpkin I've cooked up, it was so good and so filling, the kids loved it.
Tonight's dinner is Bacon and Tomato Spaghetti, just a quick meal that I came up with one day when I had pretty much nothing left in the refrigerator and pantry. It's really good and quick to fix.
