What a solemn way to end a beautiful weekend. My prayers are with the people of Orlando….in my opinion this was not a hate crime….it was a crime against America. These terrorist cannot stand that we live in freedom…they despise our freedoms…When they attack a particular group of our country they are attacking all of us. What they want to “kill” is our beliefs…and the only way to combat them is to stand together as one nation under God. Prayers….
We are starting a fun outdoor project today with our local carpenter Bob. He is starting a pergola on our side porch….I will share some pics as we progress:)
For today….I wanted to share an easy and healthy summertime dessert that makes great use of all those fresh berries:)
This will be your go to dessert this summer….fresh berries, just enough sweetness…a touch of butter and crunchy graham cracker. Low sugar low cal dessert that taste just like a pie with none of the guilt. You can substitute any berries you may have on hand….I am going to try this with strawberries soon:)
Hey yall…almost back to reality after some recharge time at the beach. I am pretty sure I could stay there for the season…maybe someday:) Wanted to pop in and share an easy idea to take on the road this summer. Weather you are going to the park or crossing the country….keep fueled up with a healthy lunch…that is tasty too:)
Summer road trips often mean packing lunch to-go….that is where this recipe was conjured up in my head. My mom used to pack sandwiches for the road when we traveled. I remember the blue cooler packed with ice packs, fruit and foiled sandwiches. We drove everywhere when we went on vacation…which I think was the norm back then. I still love a good road trip…and these Roast Beef Hoagies with Horsey Dip are perfect to pull together for your summer travels. June is Dairy Month and the perfect time to explore all the fresh and delicious items you can find in the dairy aisle. My friends at Heluva Good! sent me a couple dips to try and they were both very tasty. The Heluva Good! French Onion is a perfect dip for your veggies and this Heluva Good! Bacon Horseradish dip adds a zesty kick to any sandwich. I made some “homemade” pretzel bread to make the hoagie…so so so good!
I love to share with you interesting new products out there….so I was pumped when the folks at Jord Watch asked me to share with you. This Wood watch is a work of art and a perfect gift to give this Father’s day.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Folgers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey hey….hope you had a great long weekend! We are beach bound but I wanted to give you one more teacher appreciation gift….in case you are still looking for one:)
My friends at Folgers instant coffee challenged me to give you one more idea to use their instant yummy coffee and for some reason teachers popped into my head. I mean who needs an mid-afternoon break more than your favorite teacher?? Am I right? And guess what…this one is only 1 weight watchers point!!! Can I get an AMEN!!
Seriously….Memorial Day…whoa….summer snuck up for sure this year. Kids are out of school and the alarms clocks are off (for most of us in the house:) I had a busy week finalizing some details on the Homearama house… (by the way….the house I am working on is Number 15….say that to yourself and get in it your brain ok! Come and see me at house #15!!!;) I met with the fine folks at Ethan Allen…who are complete gems….gems I tell ya…I had a “pretty woman” moment this week. They showed me the furniture plans for the Homearama rooms…..oh my goodness….it is going to be so stinkin awesome!
I found these super sweet FREE printable at Burlap and Blue.com. I framed a few for grad gifts this year….along with some “diploma” money….topped off with a cardstock cap of course;)
