Hamburger Vegetable Soup is a quick and easy dinner. This soup has lots of flavor and a great recipe when you just don’t have time to make dinner. This recipe is my go to when I don’t feel like cooking, or I need something quickly. I have had friends say that they don’t like vegetables, but they like this soup. Lucy and her family don’t care for so many tomatoes so they only put half of them in it. It is easy to change up to your liking. Print Hamburger Vegetable Soup Ingredients 1 lb ground beef 1 14.5 oz
Pumpkin and chocolate go so well together, in this vintage Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe! When Dan and I first got married, I came across an OLD church cookbook that was from when Dan was in Sunday School as a kid. As I flipped through the recipes, I saw one that his mom had submitted for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Now, being a new daughter-in-law, I thought maybe I’d score some brownie points by making my mother-in-law’s recipe to share at the next family gathering. When I showed up with the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, my mother-in-law told me the
We normally don’t do anything for St. Patrick’s Day. I dress my oldest son in green so he doesn’t get pinched at school and my younger kids in green so they don’t get pinched by him. But this year, I thought I’d change things up a bit and at least make a special dessert. I figured I better try it out early to make sure it was tasty (and really, who minds eating something yummy twice?). Maybe I’ll even look for a craft or fun activity to do with the kids too. St. Patrick’s Day Parfait: Lime Pound Cake (Personal
Making Mozzarella cheese doesn’t have to be intimidating! Find out how to make mozzarella, along with tips on what NOT to do! We have been studying The Law of Happiness by Henry Cloud in women’s Bible study. This past week we studied principles 4 & 5. Principle 4 says happy people pursue goals. We discussed how to set goals and achieve goals. Apparently, I was partially on the right track with my goals series. Now if I could just accomplish each month’s goal before the last day of the month. This month I set out to learn to make mozzarella.
Join us for the Preschool Prep series, where I delve into the steps to take to prepare yourself for teaching preschool homeschool! I am planning to homeschool my kids, and I would like to start Miss Magoo with preschool this fall, since she turns 4 in November. However, since I’m having a baby at the beginning of August, I figured I’d better get started on preparation for the homeschooling preschool school year before I get wrapped up in a brand new baby. Since I’m usually a procrastinator, I know that if I don’t get things started right away, I’ll be
Yes, the song from the Sound of Music is on repeat in my brain. And these are new to me, but they may not be new to you. I know I am sometimes late to the party like with hummus or Greek yogurt. 1. PicMonkey – I’m having so much fun making collages, adding texts to pictures and messing with effects. 2. Anything to do with chickens. We are embarking on a new adventure of having chickens in our backyard and I’m having fun reading up on them. This post about Caring for baby chicks is especially helpful since that’s the stage we are at.
I am getting excited for spring. Here in Idaho we don’t put plants in the ground until about mid to late May. But that doesn’t stop me from planning things out in my head. And buying stuff to get ready. Lucy will be planting very soon. I’m a tad bit jealous, but when summer comes I won’t envy the misery of the heat. For now I just keep planning because this past weekend we had another snow storm. But I know that gardening season is right around the corner. This is what my garden looks like right now. Last year
This headband is really easy to make, and doesn’t require a sewing machine! And the best part is, you don’t even have to buy fabric for it- just find an old t-shirt you don’t want anymore and a hot glue gun, and you’re ready to go! I have a lot of clothes lying in a box from BK (before kids). Part of me thinks that I’ll eventually fit back in to them, but another part thinks, “Good grief! Let’s just get rid of them!” (Confession: I am definitely suffering from Cabin Fever, and I’m ready to throw everything in our
I realized today my oldest son’s birthday is quickly approaching and I hadn’t even begun to think about his party. I really need to at least have a convo with my hubby soon on what kind of party: kid, family or combo (which is what we usually do). We don’t usually have huge or elaborate parties but we do have fun and try to make the day special for the birthday kid. So while I brainstorm on party themes, I thought I’d share last year’s party with you. My oldest, DP, has been fascinated with bugs for many years so
I am a planner. I like to have things organized and planned. I do it pretty much to save time and flying by the seat of my pants drives me nuts. Not long after I got married, I started planing meals for the week. It was nice to have a plan, and I wasn’t trying to figure out what we were having for dinner every afternoon. And then making sure I had all then ingredients. With a weekly plan, I could grocery shop once a week and have everything I needed. About a year ago, Jamie introduced me to
