and already im loving it :)
look what i got for $1.00
50 of these...
family cards :)
(of course way cuter without everything blurred)
there were a ton of fun ones to choose from, these worked for me.
i didnt stress over it.
i filled in all the info i wanted... not necessarily what the form wanted. (yes, i could probably make them... but it would cost way more than a dollar of my time!)
plus, i love getting things in the mail :)
just today i wrote out all my numbers for a mom.
now ill just be able to hand these out when needed!
if i dont feel too cheesy using them.
we shall see :)
here is the info on how to get 50 for just $1.00
just wanted to share, as i can think of a few of you reading who just might enjoy having their own ;)
not sure how long it lasts, so move fast!
and make sure you send me one if you get some made up!
I love you, I really do.
You are a big part of my life. I enjoy all the great things you do for me, and you know how much I love to use you. And when I say 'use you', I mean only in the nicest of ways.
Why do you have to go and start acting up today?
We have freezer meals and desserts to make.
Birthday cupcakes and a birthday cheesecake.
And don’t forget about the pizza making birthday party this weekend.
We kind of need you for that.
I really don't know if I can function without you.
You are just a baby.
Not even one year old.
Your cousin at the old house was very healthy and never gave us any issues.
Sure, I set up an appointment for you.
But it’s an all day appointment.
As in your doctor could be here anytime.
Don’t you know how inconvenient that is for me on my spring break?
Oh range, you really don’t know what you do to me.
But I do hope you are feeling better soon.
I never said that I would never join facebook, I just said… “ I keep in touch with just who I want to via this blog :) No need to add to my already time consuming blogging.”
Never is a strong word.
Use it sparingly.
I did say that I would never own a mini-van.
And I do say that my kids never sleep in.
(So I guess there are exceptions to every rule.)
(though they've only slept in 1 day in their whole entire lives.)
(well, what i would call sleeping in...)
(and at least it's a cool mini-van)
(since when did those 2 words go together?)
and some off topic pics ;)
(teachers always have GREAT recipes!)
this one is a little different than your 'normal' reuben.
it uses coleslaw (yumm) instead of sauerkraut (yucky).
so the layers are like this.
-rye bread (buttered on one side)
-thousand island dressing
-rye bread (buttered on one side)
grill on the stove just like grilled cheese :)
that it's still light at 7:00.
and today it was warm enough to jog outside ;)
(now i wont have to read the LOST subtitles while im on the bike in the 'home gym' at 8:00 like i have been the last few weeks.)
i put dave in charge of some blog pictures while i was out.
here's what we get...
Karen R’s grandma’s recipe
Diced potatoes (1 lg. per person) we add a couple more than that.
1/2-1 c. chopped celery (optional)
1 sm. onion, chopped
Cook the potatoes, celery and onion in enough water to cover. When soft, do not drain. Add milk to make adequate broth. Bring just to a boil and add rivels.
Directions for Rivels:
Rivels: Mix 1 egg per 1 cup flour with a teaspoon of salt, with fingers until mixture is crumbly (about the size of marbles or a little smaller). Drop into above soup, stirring often. Simmer about 15 minutes or until cooked through, may cook longer if they are larger we did a little bit smaller. If you have a large pan of soup, you may want to double rivels recipe. Garnish each bowl with fresh chopped parsley. My grandma was a big parsley fan. We have done without parsley too.
We also add toasted 1 inch bread cubes to the soup too. But could be left out if you don't like them.
Directions for 1-inch bread cubes:
Melt 1 stick oleo/butter like parkay in a black iron skillet.
Add 4-5 pieces of bread that has been cut into 1 inch pieces.
Brown pieces until brown to your liking.
Stir browned pieces in just before serving.
we had pizza for dinner. yum.
dave took the christmas lights down. now that the snow has melted.
went to bed bath and beyond.
stopped at the pet store.
did a quick embroidery project.
we really know how to have a good time.

february 16. (must have been another snow day.)
oh. there's more.i normally make a new meal on valentine's day.
the 14th was on a sunday this year.
this year valentine weekend was spent doing some important things. (being with a dear friend in the hospital and visiting with a guest at our house.)
so the 'tradition' of a new meal was put off until it could be had.
which happened to be two days later, on the 16th.
we started off with a recipe from my new cookbook :)
(thanks mom and dad!)
chicken spaghetti. yummmm.
and another recipe from the same cookbook :)
and then we served our 'traditional' red velvet cake.
(it was out of the box this year, only because i had already bought the box... but next year it will be from scratch as there is a recipe for it in my new cookbook :)
dave and i still have not had our official valentine's date night of a movie and a meal other than fast food :) we will get to it. its nice to spread out the love...
