maybe it will come to me

I signed on here so that I could post about something that Andy and I were talking about this morning. I can't remember what it is though. I thought that maybe if I signed on and started typing it would come to me. But I've got nothing.

So I guess I'll share with you some of the Joys I've been having lately in the kitchen and beyond.

Yesterday I was busy making large amounts of food for my Meal Swap group. We make lots of food at once and then swap with eachother. I made Sloppy Joes and Pizza Pasta. I was stirring up the 3 pounds of cooked beef when our vegan friend came over to do some repairs for us. I was flattered when he said it smelled good.  He was probably smelling the yummy spices in my pizza sauce.

This morning the family enjoyed the pancakes with fresh pineapple and coolwhip.  Quite the treat indeed.  I like to use a master pancake mix that I found in my More with Less cookbook:

  • 3 c. ww flour
  • 3 c. white flour
  • 6T. baking powder
  • 6T. sugar
  • 2 c. powdered milk
  • 1 c. wheat germ (optional)

Then when you make the pancakes, you use 1 1/2 cups of the master pancake mix with 1 c. water, 1 egg and 1 T. oil.  Yummy yummy yummy.

YAY!!! I just remembered what I wanted to say.  I knew it would come to me.  I was so tickled this morning when I realized that Deacon has asked to call my mother every day since my grandma (her mother) died.  This morning before we had gotten him out of his crib, I could hear him in his room talking about her.  He said "Judy, love talking grandma Judy".  It's so neat how the Lord has used him to bring her joy during her grief of losing both of her parents this past week.  Oh what wonderful therapy little ones can be.

Hey Ellie! I’m visiting my parents in Freeland, PA, with the boys for 6 days, while Ken is back home working. The boys are napping and I’ve been having fun just browsing the internet blogs that I typically don’t have time to read. It’s been so much fun. Check out sometime. Anyway, I stopped by your blog. I hope to do it more often. Maybe I could even start my own!!! HOw is the new place in VA!! I heard Sam, JOanna, & Elylah were visiting this weekend?? I miss you all….. Sending hugs to you, Andy and the boys! —Jennifer

CAn you email me some info on the supper swap you participate in? What are some of the swapped meals that have worked out well? How many people are in your group? How often do you swap? And how do you all grapple with the cost per meal equalization so each participant spends approx. the same on ingredients? THanks. Jennifer
