Glee Cast - Loser Like Me (Glee Cast Version)


Once again I made peanut butter banana ice cream.  It was yummy, I'm still amazed it only made from frozen bananas and real peanut butter.  I think I'd like to find some mini dark chocolate chips and sprinkle some of them next time.
I keep wanting to say...I can't believe it's not ice cream like the I can't believe it's not butter commercials. lol

Cultural/Heritage Day at School

So today Morgan had her Social Studies project due.  There were many choices to pick from what to do.  She choose to dress up in something from her Heritage.  So I made her a little German dress.

I made it in less then a week and was very pleased on how well it turned out!  She of course loves it!

She also chose to bring in Danish Butter cookies that we made.  They were different but still good.  DanskeSmorkager is what they are called!

Yum dinner!

I made this for dinner last night and it was yummy! Chicken and peppers, pretty simple to make too!
If you check out the recipe I didn't do the whole arugula with the balsamic vinegar.
I made it with a side of asparagus! Yum!

Video of Hailey

The kids were having fun "teasing" Hailey with toys! :)  I missed her laughing it was so cute!

Our visit with Hailey and Howard & Tammy too!

We enjoyed our visit with my brother and his wife and baby.  But it went by way too fast of course.

Our visit to Bear Creek Park to see the animals!

We went to Rudy's to have some BBQ!

Okay now that I have that out there.  This is going to take forever to type.  The picture above is my poor finger that I tried to peel with a potato peeler.  What was I peeling....sweet potatoes.  I wanted to make some homemake sweet potato chips.  I did succeed but at the price of my finger.
So here's some yummy pictures of the food.

A little crispy there but still delicious!

Not too much to say just yay it's finally Friday! It's the 3rd day in a row this week I've completed my workout before I got Morgan off to school.  Now to figure out what to do with the rest of my day.  Gage and I are going to Morgan's Valentine's party at school this afternoon.
Well back to drinking my coffee and planning the rest of the day. We got a busy weekend ahead so I guess I'll enjoy the quiet right now. :)

Kale Chips

So.....I've seen a few people on Facebook talk about loving the Kale Chips they made.  Yesterday at HEB I bought some for the first time and decided I would attempt it too.
Here's a picture of the kale all washed up and dried off.  Then torn up into pieces minus the stems.

I then put them in a bag with a tablespoon of olive oil and shook them up and laid them out on a baking sheet.  I added a little sea salt on part and tried some Mrs Dash on another part.  Next I may try some garlic salt or another seasoning?

Then I baked it in the oven at 350 for 10-15 minutes until the edges got browned.

Surprisingly it was pretty good it might actually work for a minor craving of potato chips.  Notice in the picture, part of it was already eaten. :)
As for Gage he tried it but didn't much care for it.

What I should be doing...

I thought I would join all the cool kids and start my own blog.  So here I sit working on it when I know there are so many other things I should be doing.  Like checking my Facebook page.  lol

Brrr!  It's 28 degrees outside.  My feet are freezing despite the 3 pairs of socks and 2 blankets.  Ugh more cold weather and possible ice coming our way.  I guess well see if the kids have school in the morning.
