Well good morning, come on in and sit with me!!!
I can't tell you how thrilled I am that it's already Sunday, which means just another week before hubby is home. The kids are counting down the days, and I am too, I just try not to sound as desperate as they do, after all, I'm the mommy I should be the strong one right???
So I talked to hubby yesterday, he had gone to downtown Las Vegas for some Steak and Lobster....HELLO?!?!?! What do you mean Steak and Lobster and how come I'm not there to go along????
After talking to him he did promise me that when he gets back, he's taking us all to Red Lobster, well how can I not be looking forward to that....I can hear those Cheddar Bay Biscuits calling my name. Since I love to cook, about 5 years ago I hunted down the recipe, I just had to make them at home.
I did find it at the great CopyKat Recipes site. Now if you've never been there, you don't know what you're missing. You can find recipes for some of the biggest names in restaurants out there, anything from Olive Garden to Outback, Red Lobster, Cracker Barrel and TGIF. It's just wonderful. I posted the recipe on my food blog for you all. Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits recipe, enjoy!!!
You know I'm one of those people who are shy in person and don't really like big get togethers and social events, it's just not my kind of thing. But once I know you, I do tend to relax and be myself, and to me there's nothing better than sitting around the kitchen table chatting. Reminds me of wonderful afternoons spent with my greatgrandma and grandma, sharing stories and thoughts over a cup of tea and some cookies. I miss that, I miss talking to them, I learnt a LOT from my greatgrandmother and I'm glad I was willing to listen and not throw it away, it's made me into the homemaker, mother and wife that I am today. :)
It's like blogging, I like the feeling of having my family and friends here reading my blog, it's almost like you all sitting around the table or in the living room, just chatting about our day. I guess this is the reason why I'm not one to do posts just about one subject, or posts that are too profound and deep, honestly I wouldn't know where to begin.
But now that you're all here, just sit on down and have some coffee or tea, and I also have some Pumpkin Tartlets that I baked yesterday, they are delicious and really make me look forward to Thanksgiving.
Let's see what has been going on in Blogdom this past week, a couple of interesting posts, but before I go on and share them with you, I have to say that I've noticed a common sense of "realizing you're extremely happy with your life". Is it just me or does that seem to be going around??? I've noticed a lot of people, me included, who have been feeling blessed and absolutely joyful with their family, they husbands and children and their life in general. I can see the Lord's work at hand through blogging can't you???
Anyway, Sarah wants to know what is the emergent church and the purpose driven church, now because I have absolutely no idea, I encourage anyone who does to go on over and tell her.
Laura answered my question as to how to keep a kitchen organized, where things should go, where they shouldn't and how to access all the things you use daily. This lady is just unbelievable when it comes to organizing.
Kelli is holding a contest over this weekend, you're supposed to tell her what you most like about Fall and she has some great prizes up for grabs. Go on over and check it out :)
And lastly if you're hungry for some Squirrel and Liver, I mean aren't we all at some point in time (eeeewwww), go over to Barb's, she posted the recipe because we egged her on and then I wish we hadn't because it's just not my cup of tea, really it's not, but hey if you're into Game Meat, is that what you would consider a Squirrel? I'm not sure, but anyway, go and see it LOL
The kids and I had a great day yesterday, and you know I've realized that if I have a positive outlook on things, they're not so bad. Just wish I would remember that ALL.THE.TIME.
WE didn't do anything exciting or elaborate, but just tried to not think of the fact that hubby is gone and that it's the weekend and we usually get really bored, and the time just flew by.
So we went to the library, you know that's our usual Saturday afternoon outing. The kids picked out a couple of books they like, some of which they've already checked out before but it's their favorites. Like this one book called "I Stink", it's actually quite yucky if you think about it, but every kid I've ever come in contact that has read this book thinks it's hilarious.
Here is their reading list for this week:
Sleepy Time Olie
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
and I also picked up two more books for myself, I'm almost done with "Anyone but You" by Jennifer Crusie (loving it), so I needed something else to read. I'm going through one of those Fiction Phases, and even though my Fall Reading Challenge has a bunch of heavier non fiction books listed, I just can't seem to concentrate on those right now, so I'm going for the Historical Romances, Contemporary Funny Romances and the just plain Chick Books. It's doing my soul a world of good.
I have some housecleaning to do and some other projects in mind, so I better get on with those. I hope you're all having a great sunday.
The Pork Roast that we had last night was wonderful, so I'm using the leftovers as a base for today's and tomorrow's dinner. For tonight I'm making "Roupa Velha", it's really good, and I plan on serving it with some rice.
For dessert we have Pumpkin Tartlets that I baked yesterday, topped with some whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon, they're delicious!!!
