Sausage egg & cheese biscuit

Today I updated our biscuit recipe to remove the goat yogurt since we recently learned that Shelton can no longer have table sugar and lactose. Previously we were told no cow dairy and now it seems no goat or sheep dairy either. This morning we had chicken sausage, egg & cheese biscuit! It was a…

Mexican Chicken Soup with Black beans & Rice

When a cold snap reminds you that it’s not quite Spring it’s time for a pot of soup. After being at a swim meet I really didn’t think ahead much for dinner. I grabbed a whole chicken from the frig, veggies in the crisper, beans and tomatoes from the pantry. We were so hungry it…

February 25th Christmas 🎄

Today it’s February 25th and our second living like Christmas of 2019. This month Shelton decided to buy items for the animal shelter. The last time we made a donation at the shelter they said they always need paper towels and bleach. So along with food and a toy we were set to live like…

Cafe and {Canned} Chili

We play Cafe almost every night lately. Shelton loves to rearrange the playroom and set the tables for a cafe. She delights in picking out plates, napkins, and making it beautiful. She usually writes the menus and serves the meals. While this is fun we are teaching her manners, how to pay the bill, and…

Super Simple Allergy Friendly Potato Soup

Church, Sunday naps, Mary Poppins, and yummy soup refreshed us this February day. I love potato soup and growing up loved Huey’s potato soup until we realized I couldn’t eat it due to the return of my infant allergies. I learned to replicate the thick creamy soup by puréeing half of the potatoes broth mixture…

Fridays

Fridays are my catch up day. Check off everything I didn’t finish during the week. I try to finish everything so nothing interferes with family time during the weekend. As I reheat my coffee for the third time I realize my to do list this week was longer than my allotment of time. No surprises…

January 25th

It’s January 25th! Just a month ago was Christmas and just 334 days until Christmas 2019. But why wait 334 days to be more giving and charitable? I truly love the Christmas season and want to live like it is Christmas all year long. So we decided on the 25th of each month we would…

Cowboy Beans

When I’m asked to bring baked beans I show up with my version of “cowboy beans” my mom made in a bean cooker growing up. They were delicious and filling with the ground beef. A meal in themselves. She cooked them in a brown McCoy bean pottery pot. The funny part….my mother did not and…

Free Living

I love Friday mornings. They are my follow-up /catch up day to everything I didn’t finish on my list during the week. My quiet time was a struggle this week. I’ve been reading Wild and Free. Really thinking about what holds me back from letting go or not beating myself up over the little things….

InstaSoup and so much more!

It’s a cold January day and I’m changing things up a bit. This month I’m updating blog photos, changing my Instagram name, and cooking a lot more. I’m planning to post more in 2019 and I’d love your input on what you’d like to see more of. So please leave me your thoughts in the…
