Here is my recipe for the squash casserole.
Cut up several squash (about 6 or 7 good size) and boil in water until almost tender. Cut up a small onion, drain the squash and put it in a 9 x 13 pan. Add the diced onion and a large can of cream of mushroom soup. Add quite a bit of salt and pepper and top it with a cup of shredded cheddar cheese and then a sleeve of crumbled saltine crackers. (I also add some garlic powder to the casserole to give a little extra kick). Bake in a 350 degree oven until bubbly. Yummy -- -it is always a hit at potlucks.
We took our mamaw with us to church tonight. She has Alzheimers and sometimes does not like to get out of the house but she had a great time! We go to an old fashioned country church. There is nothing special or fancy about us but we sure do love people and it shows. She was very happy and said she wanted to come back again.
The girls are getting ready for bed and the dog is sitting at my feet. Hubby just kissed me goodnight so I guess it is time for me to log off here. Have a great day gang!

Breakfast -- sausuage, gravy and biscuits
Lunch/Dinner -- pork tenderloin, veggies
Breakfast -- bacon, fried eggs, and biscuits
Lunch/Dinner -- Leftover pork tenderloin
So there we have our dinner this week. Sounds good !
I gave the dog a bath and cleaned out the tub. I still have to do the breakfast dishes. I was hoping to enjoy my Saturday quietly but now we have the girl from up the street down to play.
So I have four little girls playing bank and house. They have everything drug out while they play and no matter how many times I ask them to pick some of it up the answer is "We are still playing with it". I know what that means...."We are playing right now and as soon as we are done we will be tired and you, mom, will be cleaning all of this up".
We will eat leftovers for lunch/dinner. We will have baby back ribs, corn on the cob, green beans and mac n cheese....yummy. Oh and some potato salad that needs to be eat.
Church is at 7 so that will pretty much be our day.
Maybe I can squeeze in a little nap? Ha.....that's funny :-)
We got a lot of fresh corn, onions, some potatoes, two small seedless watermelons, lettuce, carrots, and several oranges in the fresh produce box. I cooked up six of the ears of corn last night and the rest I cut up and froze for future use. I don't figure we will be able to use all of the onions before they go bad so I am goign to dice them up and freeze them. I have never tried that before but I can't see why it wouldn't work. We won't eat all of the carrots but we will eat several and the rest we use for dog treats for our mini schnauzer....good and healthy and a great teeth cleaner for him.
We received baby back ribs, pork tenderloins, shef stable milk, eggs, blueberry muffin mix, cookies, meatloaf dinner, chicken fritters, frozen broccoli, peas n carrots, and more.
We are always very pleased with our angel food order. I strongly suggest that you find a location for angel food near you. www.angelfood.ministries.com

Providing the meals for your family is a great task and one not to betaken lightly. It starts first with budgeting. Figure out how much per week you can spend on groceries. Stay within that budget. Buy generic or store brand products, never name brand. Shop at discount stores such as Aldis and Sav-A-Lot. Clip coupons but only if it is an item that you already use and only if it ends up being cheaper than the store brand of that item. Watch sale ads and look for their weekly loss leaders and stock up when they have a deal on something that you use. -- It is really great when an item is a sale item and you have a coupon. I know of people who have gotten items free that way. Make a list when going to the store and only buy what is on the list....no impulse buying. See my side bar for tips on feeding my family on $50 a week.
Quick Tips....Brown a week's worth of ground beef and freeze or refrigerate it for when you are ready. You can do this in freezer bags or tupperware containers. If you are making a casserole or lasagna....make two and freeze one for future. If you are making bread dough or cookie dough....double it and freeze one half. (Be sure to freeze the cookies in little balls so you can pick out just enough cookies to bake at a time). Use the crockpot....put the meat in to cook in the morning or at lunch and it will be ready by supper! When cooking always clean as you go so you don't end up with a sink full of dishes when you are finished cooking.
Here are some ideas for making meal time more interesting that I gotfrom reading "who got peanut butter on my daily planner" by CindyDagnan....
Monday -- Since Mondays are library days (they are at my house too!),each family member gets to bring the book they are reading with them tothe table. We each take turns reading a certain quote or scene from ourbook.
Tuesday and Thursday - Table Talk. Put questions on colorful index cards and let the children draw one or two. Even when guests are over you can still do this and they will think it is fun. Examples...What color was your day? Tell about the funniest thing that happened to you today. What is your favorite Bible story or verse? Why? If you could have dinner with any famous person, who would it be and why? What is your favorite family memory? What one things we have never done as family that you wish we would do? What is it about your favorite teach that makes them your favorite?Those are just a few questions....make up more for your family!
Wednesday and Friday - family devotions - short family devotions to read and then discuss together
Saturday - family night...do something special as a family. Light candles, play dinner music. Have family movie night. Have pretend restaurant night, etc. See my previous blog for great family traditions to use on these nights.
Sunday -free day. Make sure you eat at least one meal together a day as a family and at least 3 of those as dinners. It is very important!

Tuesday, July 22, 2008
Well it has been a little while since I did a "day in the life of" so I thought today would be a good day. We will just list my typical summer day.
Up at 6:30 pray, groom and start breakfast. Spend a little alone time either on the computer or watching the news.
Kids up at about 7:15. We eat breakfast and then I help them get ready for their day. I feed the dog and the cat and make sure they have fresh water. I pack hubby and my lunches. If I need to lay out something for dinner or put something in the crock pot I do it at this time.
I try to tidy up the kitchen a bit and finish getting ready for work and it is out the door by 8:15.
I drop the youngest off at Nana's and the oldest off at Ms. Jeanie's. I usually stop by McD's for a large unsweet iced tea with four splendas and a lemon. This is my way to start the day and the drink usually lasts me well through lunch.
I have to begin work at 9 AM and I try to be there at 8:50. I work at a printing company as a customer service representative. I handle 28 accounts and I work with all of the customers to get their work into the plant and then process it through the plant and ensure that it meets a timely bind and mail date. I also work with customers to ensure that they meet all postal regulations, etc. It would be difficult for me to explain what I do in just one small paragraph. I work mostly with trade publications and special interest publications. I work to ensure the happiness of both my external and internal customers. I really like my job and it gives me a sense of worth outside of the home. But I would trade it all in a heartbeat for the chance to stay at home and be a full time mother and wife.
Even though I work outside of the home I make sure that my children are surrounded by a Christian environment throughout the day and that I fill the evenings with as many special memories as I can. See previous posts about my family life.
Hubby gets off work at 3 and unless he has to mow a yard (he mows yards on the side to help ends meet), he picks up the girls and they are all waiting for me when I get home at about 5:15.
As soon as I get home I give lots of hugs and kisses to both the girls, hubby, the dog and the cat. Then I immediately start supper as the girls tell me all about their day. I make sure that my family eats a home cooked meal the majority of the days. There may be a few here and there that we order a pizza or stop and get a burger but those days are very rare. A lot of the time the girls will help me fix supper.
We don't watch tv in the evenings unless it is an old movie or the occasional disney show. Hubby watches tv in his room but I find it all revolting and not worthy of mine or my children's attention.
After dinner I work in the garden or work on the pool or something for a few minutes outside. Then it is back in again for baths and to get jammies on for bed.
The evenings are filled with baking, cleaning house, playing games, doing homeschool summer work, reading, cuddling and maybe watching a movie if we have time.
I tuckthe girls in and have prayer usually around 10 in the summers. Then I spend some time reading or posting on the computer or straightening the house some more. I try to be in bed at 11.
That is our day in the summer during the week.....we stay very busy around here. Idle hands or the devils workshop. And I definitely do not eat of the bread of idleness. So how are your days?
Monday, July 21, 2008
I work outside of the home so it is very important to me that my children are surrounded with loving and fun memories during the time that I am with them. I am going to share with you some ways that I made these memories with them.
Let each child pick a day where they get to pick the dinner menu. Now this may end up being just mac n cheese but let them have full control over the dinner menu. If you have older children then let them not only plan the meal but cook it too. They can even prepare a special them night for the family. For example if they want to do mexican night they can fix tacos, they can research Mexico on the internet and create some fascinating facts to share with the family. They can decorate the eating area too. Let their imagination soar and give them the freedom to express themselves.
We also like to have special nights in our family. Like movie night or picnic day. We will make posters advertising the event and hang them up around the house several days before the event. This will make the day even more exciting and the anticipation will build more and more each day.
How about having a talent show once a month? You can make posters and each child can decide what talent they want to share. They can even make tickets for mom and dad to get into the event. Make it a big deal and host a special dinner or dessert that night.
Another good idea is to have an "I remember when..." night for each of your children. Each child is given a specific night when they are the star. Gather home videos of the child, special projects that they have made throughout the years, photos, etc. Serve that child's favorite meal and mom and dad share special memories they have of that child. Every child loves to hear about when they were little. The other siblings can get into the fun too by telling different things they remember about their sister/brother too.
One thing that we do at the dinner table is tell our high and low. We ask each child (and mom and dad too) what their high of the day was (the best part of the day) and what their low of the day was (the worst part of the day). This can open communication and allow your child to share with you their joys and sorrows. You can help them through their sorrows when you know what happened to them that day.
Have an art show....it works kind of like the talent show. Each child showcases their artwork as mom and dad take a tour of the show.
Have backwards day. Everyone comes to the table with their shirts on backwards and serve dessert first!
Creation Island -- Make hamburgers on the grill and have everything imaginable for each family member to top off their burgers with. (This can also work with baked potatoes and pizza)
For a twist have family members draw a name of another family member and they create that persons meal for them.
Make a big deal over small accomplishments. When my oldest recently came out from the dentist with a report of no cavities we did a little happy dance a song right there in the dentist's office.
Christmas -- don't just decorate your tree....get all the family involved. What we do is get the tree up and the lights on and then the family gathers around the tree, we put Christmas Carols on and as I pull out each and every one of the ornaments I tell the story of that ornament. Where it came from, when we bought it or who gave it to us. Every one of our ornaments has a story....if it doesn't have a story.....it doesn't belong on our tree. Then each child and mom and dad too, take turns hanging the ornaments on the tree. Our tree is never one of those picture perfect trees where everything matches and is all one color scheme. Our tree is a family Christmas tree and I encourage yours to be the same.
Another good idea is to have a goodie tree in your kitchen. This is a small tree that is on your kitchen table and on the tree is all sorts of edible yummies. Homemade cookies and candies all individually wrapped and hung with ribbon. Then the children can get a special treat off the tree every day. And visitors enjoy the goody tree too.
This is probably my favorite holiday. Of course we go around the table and tell everything we are thankful for, the children create something homemade for the dinner table. Sometimes they create placemats sometimes it is placecard holders. I have a special meanu that I fix every Thanksgiving and my children and hubby know and love the meal.
We go camping every halloween. We decorate our camper and we give out candy to all the children who are camping at the campground. This provides a safe and happy halloween.
Another one of my favs. We plant jellybeans Easter morning before breakfast and after breakfast we go outside and the magic jellybeans have bloomed into lollipops growing out of the ground...amazing! We do not do the Easter Bunny...we want nothing to take away the meaning of this most sacred religious holiday. Our children know what Easter is all about. We have a special meal and they get an Easter basket and outfit for church.
Other fun stuff....
Don't forget the special notes in the lunchboxes! It means more to your child then you can imagine. Sometimes spruce it up and send an inexpensive special card. Or maybe put a message on your child's banana peel -- it is easy just "scratch" a message on the peeling of the banana and by the time your child eats his lunch the message is easy to read. Make up little poems or cute rhymes about your child and stick it in their lunchbox. Make it fun and exciting.
Celebrate your child's half birthday....exactly 6mos from their birthday celebrate with half a cake and half the candles.
Have a special plate in your family and when a child makes an A on a test, wins the soccer game, or any other accomplishment have that child's meal served on the special plate. You may want to include a little notebook with the plate to record the special events that have been celebrated on that plate.
Create a time capsule. As a family create your very own time capsule and open it in five years together.
As you can see there are many, many ways to create fun memories with your children. These are all things that you can do on little or no money and they will be priceless to your family.

Next Saturday we get our Angel Food in for the month and I can't wait!
Oh my word! I can't believe how tired I am! This week has been so difficult on my body. But not my soul! This is a good tired. This is the tired that comes after doing the Lord's work. I am exhausted but I am overjoyed at the results of our Vacation Bible School.
I had about 16 kids in my class and they ranged from 3 to 8. They were all such a blessing!
On Thursday night we had about 10 kids come up to altar call to be prayed for. They were so sweet walking up there. The Lord says Let the little children come.
There were days when I felt all I did was chase the kids round and round. As in the pix on this blog. I felt as though we were not accomplishing much. But then I would ask them a question and they would know the answer and I realized that even though it may seem like they were not listening to a word I was saying they really were.
I pray above all else that a child was touched this week, that a family was touched, and that they would find a church home and give their lives to the Lord.
God bless every one and I hope that each of you have the joy of teaching Vacation Bible School.

VBS is going great. I had thirteen kids in my class tonight and I have had 15 total attending my class. They are such a joy. I have children ranging from 3 to 8. Each of them are so very special in their own way. It is definitely a challenge keeping children in that large of an age group busy but with the help of hubby and another mother, and of course God's help above all, we are getting it done.
The kids are learning so much and they are really enjoying themselves. My oldest is not in my class, she is in the older class, but the youngest is with me. They are both having a grand time.
I also wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you guys that read my blog. I have so much fun posting. Once I get this VBS week finished I am going to start a new series on this blogspot titled....Mommy's Handbook. I look forward to sharing it with you.

Wednesday, July 9, 2008
I remember my mamaw telling me a cocky bull story as we would snuggle in bed.
I remember peanut butter fudge and potato candy.
I remember learning how to make biscuits from scratch and sugar gravy.
I remember everytime I was sick I would get boiled potatoes with lots of butter.
I remember dinners would consist of potatoes, spinach and mac n cheese ...no meat and that was okay.
I remember bingo and her letting me play with the chips....oh and when they came out with magnetic wants and metal wrapped chips....how fun!
I remember twinkies, turkey sandwiches, and yoohoos.
I remember going to yard sales and her looking for money in her wallet that she hid from herself for just such an occasion.
I remember eating ice.
I remember Hummingbird Cake at Christmas.
I remember a Christmas tree that was so perfect you could measure the exact distance between each ornament.
I remember big lights on the tree and so many of them that you would break out in a sweat if you sat beside it.
I remember skillet burgers and needing a green pepper.
I remember grocery lists and going to Jim's Key Market.
I remember meatloaf.
I remember Victoria singing and dancing to the silly songs she taught us. I remember I found a peanut, Philadelphia lawyer, and Barbara Allen.
I remember Little House on the Prairie and The Price is Right.
I remember the big yellow car that had a name....but I don't remember that.
I remember You toucha my car...I breaka you face.
I remember how much she loved the husband that left her with four children to raise, and no money and how she took him back with open arms everytime he came home. I remember how much she missed him when he died and misses him still.
I remember the little pink house.
I remember Saturdays with ringer washers and mom and aunt and cousins all doing laundry on it at her house.
I remember the smell of burning oil lamps and burning oil furnaces.
I remember crooked floors and uneven walls. And the sound of the porcupine as it moved under the bathtub when you took a bath because there was no floor beneath your tub.
I remember how she held me in her lap.
I remember how she used to be before she got sick.
I remember when she could remember.

Just get a simple spray bottle and add one part rubbing alcohol to three parts water. Keep this bottle in you shower (up high please....so little hands can't reach). When you get out of the shower simply spray everything and it will be clean and ready for next time. Now I must put a disclaimer to try it in a small area so to see if it will damage your tub.....not that I have any problem but I don't want any nasty complaints from anyone that did it without trying that first. I have a bath fitter fiberglass overlay tub and it is fine.
We used to go to every one and we literally would go non stop. It became ridiculous. My children cannot even enjoy Christmas at home because we are constantly watching the clock about where to go next.
In the past few years I have gradually scaled back and will again this year. It is not fair to go to one grandparents and not the other, to go to one parents and not the other. I come from a divorced family so you can automatically multiply my parents times two, I have two sets of grandparents (thank God in heaven they are still with us). Hubby has the one place to go during the holidays for his entire family....now they have the right idea :-). This year I will be telling everyone....we will be going no where on Christmas day. That is reserved for my own family and my own family traditions in my home. Anyone that wants to stop by and see us is very welcome but we will not be visiting anyone's home on that day. The Saturday before Christmas we will go to my Dads --they do this so as not to interfere with anyones schedule and it works out well. Christmas Eve we will go to hubby's family but that is the only place on Christmas Eve. I am not sure when my mother will have hers but since I am the only child we can pretty much work out a schedule that works for us. We will see our grandparents on the days that follow up to Christmas on our own and spend some time with them and give them their gift. It is better that way anyway because you actually get to spend time alone with them.
Don't get me wrong. I love being around all of my family but I simply cannot be everywhere and if I went to all of the Christmas gatherings my children would have no special memories of Christmas at home with mom and dad. And no time to sit and focus on the true meaning of Christmas which has nothing to do with running from place to place and forcing yourself to eat another meal when you just ate one. It is about Jesus and celebrating His birthday and focusing on His love.
So I encourage you this year to just say no to the cookie exchange, work party, sister's uncle's son's brother's party, and to just stay home with your children making new family traditions that will last a lifetime.
My next blog on this subject will be on Christmas traditions. Come and join me!

Boil broccoli on the stove until almost tender. Drain and put in a mixing bowl. Mix one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken soup. Put mixture in bottom of 9 x 13 baking dish. Preheat oven to 350. Melt one stick of butter in a saucepan on stove top. Crush and add one sleeve of Ritz crackers. Stir constantly over medium heat until Ritz crackers are browned. Take cheese slices and layer over top of broccoli mixture until all is covered. Add cracker mixture and bake in oven until cheese is bubbly. Great broccoli casserole and so easy.

Hubby and I have decided that it would be great fun to have someone watch our girls for a weekend and just the two of us head out camping from Fri to Sun. Boy we could really use the time alone together. It has been a very long time since we have been alone.
Well I am making my blog short today and I am off to reload laundry.
Wednesday, July 2, 2008
I once wrote a book "Still blooming". I never sent it off to a publisher although maybe one day I will.
Today I wanted to talk to those of you who feel that through your own mistakes and failures and sins you are not anywhere near where God intended you to be.
You are not alone. I am right there with you. You cannot imagine my past. It is filled with all kinds of sins and mistakes and many failures. Some sins that would probably cause you to judge me harshly and maybe even not want to be my friend anymore.
But let me tell you something, when you confess those sins to God and ask for His blessed forgiveness, and turn away from that sickening self, all of those sins are gone. Yep all gone. They are scattered as far as the east is from the west. God put all of those nasty, dirty sins at the bottom of the deepest ocean and then He posted a sign there that says "No fishing allowed!". They are never to be remembered again. If He doesn't remember them then why are you?
Also I know that God had purposed for me a life in the mission field of Africa. I know this with all of my heart. But through my own many selfish sins this didn't happen for me. Now I know that this dream of the mission field in Africa is not possible now.
Does this mean that God has all but given up on me? Does this mean that I am not walking in His glorious will now? No. It means that yes, I am not where I was meant to be. BUT I am where I am meant to be now!
I started out in beautiful soil...fresh and new. There was a nudge, a calling, a whooing to the mission field. I didn't go. I instead left the shelter of my Christain beliefs and became something awful and dry. My leaves were drying up, my soil was rocky and cracking. I was at the point of not living much less producing any fruit. It was at this point when I was at my lowest that I cried out again to God. And He moved heaven and earth and reached right down where I was and picked me up out of that rottening soil. He oh so gently held my roots and replanted me in soil that was once again rich and full of nutrients. He watered and fed me oh so sweetly until once again I was standing tall in my soil.
Now not only am I standing in the rich soil of His love but I am blooming. I am blooming for all to see and to know that God is with me. To give Him the glory! To show others His love!
He has given me a husband who loves me, children to nurture and raise in His love, a home to keep, and friends and family to help.
So you see you may not be where you were first called but that doesn't mean that God gave up on you! Bloom where you are planted....even if it is in replanted soil!

3lbs ground beef
one small green pepper, chopped
one small onion, chopped
1 t salt
1 sleeve of crumbled saltine crackers
1/3 c ketchup
Mix all of the above ingredients and shape into a loaf and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Spoon additional ketchup over meatloaf to cover top and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Check and make sure the center of the loaf is done. Let sit for 10 min before slicing to serve.
***You can also shape and back mini loaves in muffin cups. It is quicker to bake and fun to eat!
So anyway I wanted to let you guys know how much I appreciate those of you who come and visit me on my blog. I also enjoy visiting yours! I think it is great that we can share ideas and get to know each other. I have found great support in many of your blogs!
Today youngest and a child from up the street are playing dollhouse and it is so sweet to sit here and listen to them play. Hubby is mowing and won't be back for a couple of hours. Oldest is spending the night with Nana. I know she is having fun!
Another thing I want to do today is organize the freezers. I don't know if I will get to it or not. Hmmmm......and the pool needs to be vacuumed...again. :-) So I guess I need to quit rambling and get moving.
Oh and one last thing remember to pray for your husbands (see previous blog post!). And please remember me in your prayers as I have put on a lot of extra weight and I am really feeling it in my health. I need to loose 30lbs to be at the weight I should be for my height. So please pray for me!
