Banana Nut Muffins


The store has bananas for 39 cents a pound, which is dirt cheap!!!! They are usually 59 cents, so to celebrate the savings, I bought some to make muffins for breakfast! I usually wait till morning to bake them, but I'm not going to because of the snow and roads! Blessings!

Saturday


Today is a fun day in Spooner! There is craft shows going on and I'm going! I have made myself a new rule to get out more with girlfriends! My best friend left about 15 yrs ago and I'm still groping my way without a best friend to do things with and end up doing alot alone, but I am changing that slowly this past year! So, I will have a great time with Ruth, laugh alot, drink some coffee, eat some goodies and enjoy the day! Have a great Saturday!

Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving from Gordon and myself! We hope and pray that each one of you who reads this thing has a great time with family and friends! We pray that the meaning of thankfulness will continue throughout the rest of the season! We also pray for our servicemen and women who continually maintain our freedom! We thank the Lord God Almighty for our freedom! Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are persecuted because of their faith! Blessings!

Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is just around the corner! We had 3 of our 4 granddaughters here over the weekend and we talked about the Pilgrims! Most children aren't learning about the pilgrims, why we give thanks, the first Thanksgiving and what is a cornucopia! I tried to explain in child like reasoning who the Pilgrims were and why they came here! It's amazing to me still why they came here and how much they endured for my freedom! Seize this time and share with your families! Tell them stories of grandma and grandpa, where they came from if they weren't born here, what it was like when you were growing up(walking to school up the hill both ways, LOL)! Let's all give thanks!! Blessings!

I told you the other day that I would take a photo of the chicken enchilada soup that I made, it is good! We've eaten it for 3 nights and this is the last night for us! I put chicken, adobo sauce, tex-mex rice, sour cream, onion(diced), diced carrots, chicken stock, oh and pinto beans! We love it and I will make it again! Blessings!

hunting weekend


Rifle season starts this Saturday in Wisconsin! With that said, all life as we know it stops! No kidding aside!! I attend a craft fair with my mom's fudge made and make some money for Christmas! I never reveal my recipe which was my mom's, but I truly enjoy making it and sharing with others! So stop in this weekend to see me and many other truly talented people at the American legion Hall in Spooner! Blessings!

chicken enchilida soup

I had a wonderful soup on Thursday in Siren while waiting for my truck! It was enchilada soup. It had black beans, corn, chicken and tortilla strips served as crackers! So, today I will attempt to recreate it for our meal! I baked 2 chicken breast for the recipe! After I put the baked chicken, I then put them into the stock pot with some water and brought that to a boil, turned the heat down to a simmer, took the chicken out and cooled it down so I could pick it off the bone! Today I will finish the soup with adding sauteed onion, fresh carrots diced, black beans and corn, plus a can of enchilada sauce with some milk. I will post later some pics of the soup! Blessings!

Leftovers


I had made some bread with a new recipe on Monday, so with the leftovers getting hard, I made bread salad. It includes frying the bread cubes in olive oil, garlic and a little butter, then adding a can of diced tomatoes(I drained the juice), then add to bread cubes and chill! Yum! With that I served leftover risotto, it was great! Blessings!

new coffees


The other day at the grocery store I saw some shiny coffee bags!!! Dunkin Donuts have some holiday coffee flavors out now and going fast! Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla Nut and Mocha Mint! I bought a Vanilla Nut and Mocha Mint for gifts! A little coffee and maybe a mug or two would be a really nice gift for a teacher, co-worker, pastor, friend and grandma who has everything! Check them out!! Blessings!

Appreciation


Pastor talked yesterday about blessing God with thankfulness! WOW!!!! This week he has challenged us to ask for nothing, but to give thanks and bless His name! So, with that in mind, today was a little on the tough side, but I have almost made it through! I'm so thankful for my job and the people I work with! I have worked many jobs(once I had 8 W-2 forms for the year), so I know what I speak of! I'm sure there are jobs out there that would be more fun, but I have so much freedom to do demos, help people, and help my co-workers! Blessings!

class


Last night I took another cooking class. It was demonstrating the greatness of Le Creust pans. They are beautiful and well made, but my, oh my they are costly! The pan I would love to have is $210!! WOW!!!!! But on the way there, I missed an 8 pt buck just by the hair of his chinny chin chin!! So, to continue the thankfulness theme this month, I'm so thankful that I didn't hit that deer and cause damage to Gordon's vehicle, but that I got home safely! Blessings!

thankfulness


I was reading "The Park Wife " blog today and she was talking about thankfulness! I thought "what a great idea"!!! I told her in the comment area of her blog(I have one too which some of you never use), that I would use the same idea here! What are you thankful for"" For your job. children, grandchildren, home, relationship with the Living God, your spouse, your health or that you're not so sick as the neighbor????? I'm so thankful for my family and friends who care for me and about me! For my job and employer! The people I work with and the people I don't(just kidding)!!! For a loving God who is never pushy or judgmental! For Jesus who loves me so unconditionally!! Join the journey and leave a comment! Tell me in person when you see me and I will pass it on! Let's start something big with thankfulness! Blessings!

Friday


Today is pizza day, but today I'm demoing a new cookie that is brought in to our store bakery! It's called a "Smart Cookie". It has pureed veggies and fruits in them! They are very moist and tasty! No one could taste the veggies, except one smartaleck teenager and we all know those kinds of teenagers who are needing a take down! Anyway, come in and have a piece of cookie and cup of coffee! Blessings!

vote


Please go and vote today! I won't preach my politics, though I could since this is my blog, but I reserve the right that you have the right to vote the way you do! Most of you know that I am a Christian and as a Christian, God has given us this right to be a good stewart of what we have in this nation! We just finished going through a Bible study that had you think about your politics and can you back up what you believe politically with Scripture! It was a great study! Makes you think! Blessings!

Fun times

So, as most of you know by now that Wednesday is my day off and I usually go over to Erika's store and do a project. So, this Wednesday ...
