Breakfast Time...


Waffles! Yummy delicious Waffles!

I make A LOT of Waffles!

Add on the butter and top with syrup
why YES PLEASE!

Now we all know why waffles 
have little pockets, right?

Bring on any kind of topping and yes, just dig right in.

You can make your waffles any way you want
and then top them with just about anything.

Here's some ideas that might motivate or
 spark your creativity while preparing breakfast.

I've mixed in fruit to the batter:
Blueberries
Strawberries
Raspberries
Currants

Chocolate Chips
Oatmeal
Bacon Crumbles

And of course I've topped them with:
Maple Syrup
Homemade Cherry Syrup
Homemade Mulberry Syrup
Peanut or Almond Butter
Cinnamon and Sugar
Powdered Sugar
Fresh Fruit

Really the list of possibilities are endless...

What's your favorite way to eat waffles?


I've got another busy week planned here!!
I hope you all have a splendid week!

Thanks for stopping by...

Did I make you hungry??

We all need Laughter...


HaHaHa!!

Sometimes we all need a great big belly laugh!

Don't you all agree?

Being all serious all the time is not good for us.

I have a friend that was telling me the other day
that she doesn't know how to have fun or to laugh.

I about fell out of my chair!

I can't imagine not having any fun
 OR 
to have a good laugh!

Say what?!?!

We need to enjoy all the little things in life.
To stop and enjoy our kids and our husbands!

Life's too short....

We need to laugh and have fun or our lives 
would just be plain
BORING!

Especially when our kids are at home 
and when they are away.
We set the example for them...

I don't want my kids to grow up and say 
mama never smiled or laughed!

So...do me a favor...Stop throughout your day
and do something fun, laugh and
enjoy your day!

I just can't even imagine a world with no laughter!


Okay...enough said...

Thanks for stopping by!

Flowers...

God's Grace Overflows

What a lovely day to stop and smell the flowers!

With Fall quickly approaching
I thought I would share a few of my flowers with you.

God's Grace Overflows

We had an amazing crop of flowers
and then the grasshoppers came and ate them all.
It was rather a sad day!

God's Grace Overflows

Thankfully, I was able to get some pictures before 
the destruction happened.

God's Grace Overflows

These Roses mean a lot to me, for my dad gave me two 
rose bushes many years as a Mother's Day gift.
I cherish these, for my dad is now gone.

God's Grace Overflows

My mom in law gave these flowers to me 
in a pretty pot for this Mother's Day.

So far the grasshoppers have left these alone.
But we did discover they don't like Home Defense bug spray
the grasshoppers, not the flowers!

So, once we started spraying the flowers, the grasshoppers
stopped chomping on them.

God's Grace Overflows

Our flowers did come back with some new blooms
for awhile and that was a nice site to see.

So, until Fall is in full swing,
 I hope you enjoyed your visit!

Do you feel a touch of Fall in your area?


Be Blessed,

Meanwhile... Down on Our Farm...

Good Day to you all!

Do we ever have some news for you!


Our Mama Pig, Jelly had piglets!
This is my middle son helping deliver the babies!


Daddy helping the piglets nurse
as they entered the world!


Jelly decided to bring these precious little piglets
into the world at 10:00 pm, Thursday evening!


My youngest helping out his daddy.
We put the heat lamp up, 
since it was a wee bit chilly out!



Jelly had 9 piglets total...
7 girls and 2 boys


Aren't they just the cutest little piglets?!!


Mama and piglets... Just so sweet!


The boys were amazed at how quickly 
they learn to walk and eat...


Snug as a bug next to mama...


This one is Wilbur, she was born first!
(Yes...I said she, but my son had to name her Wilbur)
Smiles :)

Here's my youngest with his daddy and his 
piglet Charlotte!

We have had quite the excitement around here!
Mama and piglets are doing really well.
As long as her piglets aren't squealing,
 she is a very happy loving mama!

In other news...
Hunting season is upon us,
so I have been busy cooking
 and packing up the camper.
So much to do and so little time.

We have turkey tags and elk tags
so we are really hoping to fill our freezers!


How was your weekend?

Do you have any special plans for Labor Day?


Thanks for stopping by...
I appreciate your visit!


HUGS,

Triple Berry Muffins...

God's Grace Overflows

Happy Day to you!

Another week has passed...
Another week begins...

It seems like things slow down for a bit
 and then things get busy once again.
But...I think that's normal for this home school mama!

I've been trying to get my house in order
de-cluttering and organizing
and waiting on the last of the school
 books to arrive in the mail.

I've also been cooking away in the kitchen, 
trying to get a head start on food prepping for my hunters!
They'll be in and out hunting next month.

I made these yummy muffins the other day
and they were a huge hit!

They are Triple Berry Muffins

Now you can use any 3 berries you want
but I used Blackberries from our bush and
Raspberries and Blueberries from our local farmer's market.


Would you like the recipe?

I thought you might... So here it is!

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup raspberries
1/2 cup blackberries

Preheat oven to 375. 
Line two muffins tins with paper liners
and lightly spray with cooking oil.

Next, mix all your dry ingredients in a large bowl. 
Stir in your eggs, milk and melted butter.
Fold in your berries of choice.
Pour into your prepared pans,
 sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar if desired.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.

These muffins were so moist and delicious!

Enjoy!

Blueberry Lemon Pie...




Hello Friends!

How are you all doing?  How is August treating you?
It's been really hot here!
We have had company off and on all last week,
so I am feeling a bit tired and on the
 constant go for one thing or another.

I am ready for some normalcy...
But, I think I might need to wait on that
for I have another few busy weeks ahead!

So, this here pie is something that my youngest son created.
He is only 8 years old!

It's a blueberry lemon pie!

And, believe it or not it tasted really good.

We first started off by making a graham cracker crust
Then he made a instant lemon pudding
Layered with fresh blueberries 
And topped it with some homemade whipped cream
Then decorated the top with more blueberries


Didn't he do a great job?
Now if only you could have tasted it...
The combination of lemon and blueberries worked
and he didn't try to add in some strange fruits or veggies!

Because he has done that before!
(Smiles)

I've been the taste tester for many of his creations
 and I gave him an A+!

He can also cook his own eggs
He makes Ramen Noodles like they are going out of style
and well...he just loves to cook with me!

And I just Love that he Loves being in the kitchen with me 
creating memories and enjoying each others company!

Isn't that what life is all about??

Do you let your kids cook/bake with you in the kitchen?

What's the best thing your child has made?

I just LOVE all the memories that have been created
throughout the years!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and see me!

HUGS!
