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:
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.
