What I Have Discovered

I’ve discovered a new meat that I actually like and is very versatile and inexpensive. It’s Turkey Sausage. I know it may not sound appealing but I’m telling you it’s really really good. I’ve used it for stir fry, you can use it instead of beef for tacos, you can use it in your spaghetti sauce, or you can just cook it on it’s own, add a little seasoning and make some rice of vegetables with it.

just something random I found on YouTube.

It’s much healthier for you than regular meat and it tastes just as good. Give it a try on your next meal.

Pork That’s What’s For Dinner

Have you ever tried pork loin, or cooked pork chops in the crock pot? People should eat more pork, I think it’s the next best thing after chicken. I have never been too fond of pork until I was a little older and had children of my own. So, being a mother, you try new things. I would get recipes from friends and try them. One of the recipes to my surprise, I actually liked. You can fry pork, bake it, grill it, sauteed it, add a can of soup like cream of broccoli, or cream of celery, cook it in a crock pot with BBQ sauce, it’s pretty versatile. A good way to get some extra protein.  I might make this for my school function at the end of the month, looks great.  I found other recipes on some of the sites below also.

 

Carb Free and Free!

Is there anything out there that is sugar and carb free or low carb that actually tastes good? I am so discouraged about baking sugar and fat free. I think I’ve tried about 5 different recipes so far that claimed to be really good tasting, however, it didn’t taste even remotely good. I have followed all of the recipes to a “T” and still they do not taste good even a little bit. It is much better than trying to get left handed scholarships, that is for sure!

I don’t eat sugar too too much but when I get a sweet tooth and I really want something sweet, it would be nice to find something that tastes great!

In The Cold Weather

So I won’t be complaining about Winter anymore. I cannot wait until Summer time :). In the Summer, it’s funny because I normally complain about the heat.

However, being stuck inside for almost half of a year, has made me realize how silly that was. At least when it’s hot, you can jump in a pool, or jump in the ocean or eat an ice cream to cool off.

I like summer , it is because I do not have to think about this subject

Smallest Post Office

We were on our way to the beach after a very long week doing easy scholarships to apply for and we saw the craziest thing.  We live right outside of the country and decided to take another route.  We came across the smallest post office that I have ever seen.  I was able to get a picture of it.  It was about as small as a bathroom you’d find at a convenient store.  It was beautifully built though, it was in a small beach community.  I’ve just never seen anything that small before.

Wacky

Have you heard of wacky potatoes?  How about wacky jobs?  There are so many “wacky” things out there it’s quite funny.  I was looking around for wacky recipes for a children’s function we are having and wanted to try to make something different, so I went on the search and the work “wacky” came to mind.  I found so many things, wacky hair, wacky scholarships, wacky names, and yes, of course, wacky recipes.  Who knew?  It will be interesting for sure.  I hope the kiddos enjoy.

Fudge

We made fudge this morning for our teds woodworking review group for a treat. It delicious! I never thought making fudge would be so easy. I really didn’t know what to think about making fudge. I didn’t know if it had to be put in the oven, or what was mixed with it or anything. All you need is some butter, some vanilla, some powdered sugar, peanut butter, milk, and cocoa. You just stir it all together then place in the freezer while it hardens. You enjoy and keep the leftovers in the refrigerator.

Recipe Fun

Trying new recipes is exciting and fun. We went to a group function for consolidation loans for bad credit last week and they provided a dinner for all that were attending. One of the items was a soup, it was in a crock pot. It was very tasty so I was able to get the recipe and try it for myself at home. We were so impressed with how it turned out that we actually went out and bought a new crock pot for ourselves to try new recipes.

Peanut Butter and Honey

There is nothing more tasty than a peanut butter and honey sandwich. To some that may sound pretty gross, but I promise you, it is the yummiest thing ever. So, how did I come to try it? Well, we ran out of jelly one day and our daughter still had some peanut butter left and some bread. I went through our cupboard to see what else we had and I saw some honey and some maple syrup. I chose the honey. To our surprise, it was really good. I have even had some sandwiches the same way.  I will be bringing some to our weird scholarships group next week, it’ll hold everyone over just perfectly.

New Pizza

A new way to make pizza. The things on top stay the same, but the crust is different. You cut up cauliflower into diced little slivers that look like rice. You then cook the rice until it’s a bit soft. You then take the rice and you squeeze out the excess into a towel. Then you mix it with cheese and some italian seasoning and bake the crust on 400 for about 40 minutes. There is your pizza crust. Then top with your favorite toppings and you have a delicious, healthy pizza you don’t have to worry about gaining too much weight from.  Next week at my easy scholarships class, it’s my turn to cook so I think I’ll be making this, it’s quick and easy.

Apple Pie

I got to have an apple pie yesterday for the first time in probably over a year. I try to stay away from sugar as much as possible. When I eat sugar, It seems to get my blood sugar all out of whack. So, I just limit my intake. It’s funny when I do finally eat sugar though, I seem to get really hyped up and hyper for about an hour. Then of course comes the sugar crash. That usually happens about an hour after I eat the sugar. Well, the apple pie was worth it.  I am bringing in some of this delicious apple pie to my credit debt class this week.  Then we’ll all have sugar crashes.

Rudeness

It’s pretty frustrating when you make a call to a large company and they are rude with you and start acting like everything is your fault. I was calling about my printer today so that I can do my work for and they acted like I had just thrown it down the stairs and purposely broke it. This is the second printer that this has happened to and they treated us like a criminal.  It’s not like I was calling a credit card debt consolidation place asking for more credit and I haven’t paid my bill, goodness.

New Teacher

Our son has a new teacher in school, we’re glad that they decided to do this earlier on in the year rather than having the kiddos get used to a teacher for the majority of the year then pull them on to another project. I think that’s really important for their learning. When I started my schooling through left handed scholarships, I didn’t want to change teachers.  They start getting used to one particular teaching style then take more time trying to learn another style.

Coffee Strength

You have to really be careful when it comes to the strength of coffee you use. Oh my goodness. We went shopping this last weekend and we bought a new coffee. It seemed like it would be good so we bought a big tub of it. Big mistake. We are having to bring it back now as it seemed to have us completely anxious from the strength of coffee that’s in it.

Now that I’m awake from my coffee, it’s off to my consolidate credit card debt meeting.

Party Popcorn

Ok all, you will absolutely love this. I read a receipe about pop corn, believe it or not in a how to get a scholarship group, and of course one of the ingredients, chocolate, and yes, sprinkles, yay. The only set back, make a small batch because when you make it, I promise you, you will want to eat the entire thing in one day. It was so good, so how is it made? Well, you pop some pop corn, as little or as much as you want. You melt some chocolate, I used white chocolate myself. Pour the chocolate over the pop corn then sprinkle it with whatever sprinkles you would like. I kept mine in the fridge which seemed to harden the chocolate just enough.

Great Coffee

Good coffee makes a big difference on the day you have. We tried a different coffee out last week and a different creamer. We worked through it but it just didn’t make for as much of an enjoyable day as when we had coffee and creamer that we enjoyed. I would just recommend that if you are trying new coffee, perhaps try to find it in a smaller package so that if you don’t like it, it’s not a big deal. I’m excited that we are back to the good stuff.

This stuff on tv, not so good. I’ll take my good coffee instead.

When I am trying to make a new recipe, I find it quite exhilarating because it allows me to experiment with different types of foods. Some of the things I like most about trying different foods is the fact that when I’m hungry I can eat the things that I enjoyed the most. For example, I really enjoy chocolate chip cookies. But, it is hard for me to find a recipe that I really enjoy. So, what I did was combine three or four different types of recipes in this help me create one of the best cookies I think I have ever tasted in my entire life. This next week, I am going to try a new recipe for fudge and I am sure that it will work out marvelous. Note: I try to cook as much as possible when I am working on my anatomy and physiologys study guide because it allows me to get my mind off of work. Anyway, I think I am going to make a salad after all of this heavy eating!
Here are a couple of different recipes.

2nd One I Like!

Sugar Sugar!

we tried a new coffee creamer the other day and it was fantastic. It was cinnamon bun flavored and oh so yummy. We typically don’t buy anything with sugar but couldn’t resist. Our opinion on it? It was worth every penny.

I’m not sure if we will get it again as it has about 6 grams of sugar per serving, and when you typically have about 3 cups of coffee per day, that equals out to a lot of sugar. I wish they would make more sugar free/fat free varieties. Funny enough, in my no essay scholarships contest , we had to make our favorite recipe. This was mine! At least it was a good change, next time we go shopping, it will be back to the sugar free vanilla.

My 2 year old dog.


Having a puppy is just like having a two year old. I think i’ve forgotten that. We just recently adopted a little puppy just a few months old. Thankfully we got a carrier for him or else he would just run a muck just destroying things around the house. He likes to chew on things, and if we don’t watch him, he piddles and poos around the house.

Come to think of it, this reminds me of what I was thinking about when I was at school when I was 19 and applied for easy scholarships. (wow it is strange what you remember) know he doesn’t know any better yet and I’m sure he’ll catch on, but for now, we have to watch him like a hawk. His cute little puppy kisses and little whines when you’re not holding him enough are enough to forget all of the little stuff you go through when they are this young. I dont’ think I would have it any other way, it is rewarding seeing him wagging his tail when we come home.

Mr Rogers

One of my favorite shows is Mr Rogers. When I was growing up, I remember spending hours watching this show. Now, my daughter, who is 6, now watches Mr. Rogers on Amazon. I think this show lasted for 8-9 years. Some of the shows that I never got to see were the episodes in  black and white. Speaking of black and white.

I recently saw an article on the NBC that showed some of the older photographs. Some of the photos were from the depression days where many needed consolidation loans for people with bad credit . Also, these photographs had been retouched and they looked absolutely wonderful. I have listed a few of the photographs for you to take a look at. Some of the photos contain Abraham Lincoln and some showed war photos too. I think I remember seeing Marilyn Monroe too. It is interesting how many photos have been retouched. (Edit my mistake! Mr Rogers was on from 1968 – 2001!!!!

Nothing More…

Could there be something that is more fun than waiting to go to Busch Gardens? Nope! Oh my goodness, I have ridden the Montu and I felt that I was about to come out of my seat! I was a great feeling and I am thinking that I would be better suited for a kids coaster. But, I think that that I would like to go on a pirates ride too though. Here are a few youtube vids showing those rides.

Here is another!

In the coming weeks….

In the coming weeks, we will begin to give a critique of the different youtube videos that are on youtube. I think you will like what we are about to do. Well..I can’t wait. We have found some VS. videos online such as Alien vs. Predator. I know you will like it, at least I do!

Some videos I enjoy

Here are some pretty vids, I watched late last night, the second one is pretty cool.

Some of these are pretty cool. I really enjoyed the one with cartoon. For some reason, I really enjoy cartoons and I also love to watch Japanese Anime. It makes me laugh at times, and at other times I really enjoy the way they make their art. I think it is brilliant.
