Day 32

8:49 PM 3 Comments
The days are kind of just running from one to the other and it's at this point of deployments and TDY's that I tend to get confused and sort of lose track of what day it is. I think after a while you just go with the flow until your husband returns.
One thing is for sure, I will miss these daily picture posts when he's back, but I'm thinking I will continue to post pics with my daily posts, whatever they may be about :)

Cooking Thursday - Cheddar and Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches

8:16 AM 8 Comments
It's a beautiful Thursday morning and time for yet another Cooking Thursday.  I'm sharing with you a recipe for breakfast sandwiches, hope you enjoy them.

I am thinking that next week I'll start sharing some crockpot recipes again, my stash of recipes is dwindling and I really would love to get some new ones to try.  So....if you want to join next week with a slow cooker recipe of your own, I would LOVE that :)

If you want to use the picture, just click here for the original.

These are always welcomed in my home, especially on a Saturday or Sunday morning.   They are yummy, easy to throw together and the best part is that you can make a few at a time. 

Bacon, Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Cheddar and Bacon Breakfast Sandwiches

3 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. milk
2 T. butter
8 thick slices bread
12 slices Cheddar cheese
4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled (I don't crumble mine)


In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk; set aside. Preapare a griddle or large skillet by melting butter over low heat.

Dip only one side of 4 bread slices in egg mixture. Place 4 bread slices, coated side down, on griddle or in skillet.

Top each bread slice with 3 cheese slices. Sprinkle cheese with bacon, or if you haven't crumbled it, just lay about 3 slices on top of the cheese.

Dip only one side of the remaining 4 bread slices in egg mixture and place over bacon, coated side up.

Cook 5 minutes per side or until bread is golden and cheese is melted.

Makes 4 sandwiches.

Day 29

9:15 PM 7 Comments
What a BUG filled day I had.  I honestly got up, and by 7am was ready to go back to bed and start the day again.

It started with another blowout with a bunch of ants in my kitchen/living room area, mopping of floors again, more comet cleaner set out outside the perimeter of the house and then vinegar etc.  I'm SO sick of ants.

I thought I was done though, and I sat down to have my coffee when Nicholas asked for some breakfast, so  got up, headed to the cereal cabinet and thought I saw something from the corner of my eye, but I figured I was just imagining things.  Yeah NO.

Low and behold a lizard....a LIZARD folks, was in my cabinet.  Everytime it moved an inch I let out a blood curdling scream, you don't understand I can not stand lizard they make my skin crawl, they make me want to throw up, they give me goosebumps and I actually shiver and want to just cry LOL  It was a sad sight.

I was on a kitchen bench, with metal tongs in my hand, removing all the cereal boxes and every time that darn thing so much as moved I screamed, so much so that the last time I saw it and screamed I actually scared the darn lizard LOL

And the person who saved me, was Jasmine...she got rid of it for me.  How embarrassing.  Actually, no scratch that, I am not going to be embarrassed, I don't care what anyone thinks, I hate those things and I can't be near them Hahahah


::::  nasty little bugger, I still get goosebumps thinking about it
Day 29


:::: she trapped it and then set it loose out in the front yard, and it started running towards me and I kicked rocks in it's path and screamed my way into the house
Day 29


:::: lunch, a quick wrap. I think this is my favorite easy go to meal
