Been Working On Something...So Cute!

We are leaving soon to go see my husband's mom, dad and sister (and her two kids), but I have still managed to find a little time to create something new. When I say that I found the time to make something new, what I really mean is that I am avoiding my never ending list of things that I should be doing, while I sit in the chair and watch re-runs of Roseanne, on Oxygen!

I think it is adorable! Yep, I am probably more than a little bit biased! Oh well, right?

I am sorry that I have been a rude blog buddy lately, but about two weeks ago my sister called and said we had been offered a slot at a flea market/craft show and that it is this Sunday. There was just no way that I had enough stuff made to cover a show! So...I got to, manically! I have been a crazed crocheting/sewing momma for the last two weeks! UGH! My fingers hurt! My forearms are sore! For real! Anyway, I just haven't had time to do much of anything on the computer! I really enjoy reading all of your entries, but I just haven't had the time.

I guess what I am saying is that...

I am not dead, just busy!

Have a great weekend!

Love ya!

Convo with Bucko

Earlier my husband and I were having a conversation. We were kind of messing around, talking about being "soul mates" and our son Bucko was listening to us. My husband said we are soooo in love and I started goading him...saying things like, "oh ya" and "sure we are" and my husband started getting frustrated with me.

Out of nowhere, Bucko looked at me and said, "So, is dad your brother?" I nearly died! My husband was really quick to explain to him that there is NOOOOOOOOOOO way that you can marry your sister, because it is wrong, on sooooo many levels. I couldn't say anything, because I was laughing so hard!

Where does stuff like this come from? I guess I never realized just how confusing this stuff really is for kids! To say the least, I am dumbfounded, still.

Have a great night!

A New Kick? Possibly?

First off, sorry for the quality of the pics, but I was just taking them to show a lady who asked for some play food and then I thought..."what the heck? Why not send them to THE WORLD! (cue evil laughter!)" I am kind of in love with this new play food making kick that I am on!

As you can see, this is simply a "greens" salad, with radishes on top.

This little "masterpiece" is a peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwich!Just another view...

As my girls would say, "It's a hay may ger!"

The girls wouldn't think to tell you that this hamburger has cheese, lettuce, tomato and pickles on it too!

Value meal? If you are me, this is a veggie burger and a garden grown salad! Yay! Yep, I might be having too much fun!

I even tried making grapes, but I am not exactly impressed with them, so I didn't take any pics.

What is next on my list, you ask? Who knows! I was thinking eggs and bacon, maybe? Yep, cage free, hormone and chemical free eggs, if you are me, but eggs just the same!

Smoothie Trick

Not that this is an earth shaking, ground breaking, super fantastic idea or anything, but kinda it is, so I thought I would share! Lucky you!!!

Lately, I have been making a batch of smoothie every night of the week. This means that I have been using either fresh or frozen fruit, ice and juice to make a wonderful treat for my family. But, the smoothies are not the treat, as much as my genius idea to make a little extra and freeze it in a coffee mug, for later. I just pulled out a magical mug full of chocolate covered strawberry smoothie, from earlier this week and am enjoying it as I type! Pretty good trick, huh?

Oh, you would like a few of my simple recipes you say...I guess I could be persuaded!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie

1/2 blender of chocolate Silk
1 bag frozen strawberries

I told you it was simple! If you want, you can start with just a little liquid in the bottom of the blender, so the strawberries don't make too much of a splash and then you add the rest, as needed.

Last night we had

Peachy Lemon Smoothie

1 banana
1/2 blender of apple juice
1 lemon
1 bag frozen peaches
1 tray of ice

My Meeeeema's favorite smoothie is anything with blueberries!

1/2 bag frozen blueberries
1 lemon
2 bananas
2 trays of ice
1/2 blender of juice (we use mostly apple)

As you already know, you can use fresh, or frozen fruit. You just adjust the amount of ice you use, to get the right consistency. If you would rather have a thinner smoothie, add more juice, or less ice. It is all in what you are interested in eating! Who says you can't have your fruit and eat it too!?
