Back to School Baked French Toast

26 Aug

Welcome to day 5!  I definitely saved the best for last!  This recipe comes from the Pioneer Woman.  As much as I wish this was my own recipe there is just no way that this recipe can be improved….it’s scrumptious perfection!  It’s a little indulgent, but after that first whirlwind week of back to school we all deserve a little treat. This will easily become a family favorite and it will make many appearances on your dining table!

Breakfast…here we go, Day two!  Sometimes, despite our best intentions, breakfast does happen in the back of the mini van.  When that happens, I am so grateful for these babies in my freezer.  They are yummy and minimally messy, amen!

This recipe makes about two dozen, whips up in a hot minute, and best of all you can personalize each of them to suit everyone in the family all at the same time…that is something to be excited about it!

Back to School Simple Slow Cooker Ham and Scalloped Potatoes

17 Aug

We made it to day three of back to school slow cooker recipes. This one is the bomb-diggity  (Insert eye roll from the tween as she watches me type bomb-diggity).  My kids eat this up, their friends eat it up, my hubby crosses his fingers in hopes there will be leftovers for his midnight snack.  It’s a sweet moment for me 🙂

I hope you enjoy it as much!

Nothing could be simpler than my slow cooker smothered pork chops. It is so versatile and so simple to adjust to your taste. We also love adding fresh mushrooms and onion to this dish and it just adds such a flavor punch to the gravy.

Lest we Forget

28 May

I am so grateful for the brave men and women who headed the call and left what was familiar and comfortable for a life of upheaval and uncertainty. Today I pause with reflective prayer to honor those who gave their all…the fallen brave who courageously breathed their last breath defending the country and the people they so loved.

To the families who gather around a grave rather than a grill-my prayer is that our Heavenly Father will fill them with grace, peace, and healing. That they would find comfort in each other and that the sweet memories of their loved ones will sustain them until they are reunited in Heaven. Thank you, for your great sacrifice also!

 

As you enjoy your 3 day weekend please remember and pray for all the brave men and women in our military. Pray for the mothers and fathers who will never hold their precious boys and girls in their arms again, for the wives and husbands who will never get to live out the hopes and dreams they planned together, and for the precious children who will never feel the tickle of daddy’s whiskers on their cheek or the soft embrace of their mother’s arms again. The burden is too great to let this weekend go by without a heartfelt sense of gratitude for the meaning behind our three day weekend.

The Day our Music Died

22 Apr

It was a day that will become an “Where were you when” iconic conversation.

The news that Prince had died pulled the heartstrings of people from around the world.

Someone asked, “How can millions mourn a man they never knew?”.  Good question and I think it’s because music is nostalgic.  No one did it bigger or with more influence for this generation than he did.

Nothing has the power to move us and to transport us to a single moment quite like music.  Music helps us to retell our stories and helps preserve our memories. These moments all come together as a unique soundtrack, different like a finger print and it becomes our storyteller.

When he died, of course we mourned the man but also we mourned a piece of our youth that died that morning.

Being Minnesotan we love our own and he felt like ours.  His death brought out a unity in our city that we haven’t seen in a long time.  That day where once stood an enemy became a friend and where once stood a stranger became a brother and sister.  We put our petty differences aside and came together shoulder to shoulder and hand in hand in unity to honor a man passionate about his craft, his city, and his people.

The young and young at heart took to the chilly Minnesota streets to celebrate music, love, life, and humanity.

We were all moved by his talent, his presence on stage, and his quiet thoughtful nature off  stage.

Let our own lives reflect the goodness that brings people together and may we live in such a way that when our curtain falls for the last time that our music will also live on.

Thanks for reading.

It Also Looks Like This

6 Sep

With Labor Day once again upon us, please take a minute to give, read, or share this story to help to bring awareness to Muscular Dystrophy and continue to bring hope to all the families affected. Thomas has had some setbacks this year. He has been hospitalized, his body tires and hurts more quickly, and has had to rely more on his wheelchair. In spite of all he and his family has been through they continue to cling to hope and to the One who gives it. They inspire me! Thank you for visiting. ~Be Blessed and be a Blessing~

.....and a sprinkle of love

I would like to introduce you to Thomas. He is the 8 year old best friend of my son Jacob and the son of my dear friend, Joelle.  These precious boys have been friends since diapers and are definitely two peas in a pod.  They love to be together doing all those neat things little boys like to do. They run, climb, and jump and when they have done all of that, they fall into a heap laughing like only innocence allows. No matter how much fun they have the same conflict always arises.  There is a constant disagreement with Thomas’s mind and his legs.  After a short time of boy play Thomas starts to get an all too familiar ache and stiffness in his legs.  He wants to keep going but his little body says no.  You see, Thomas was born with Muscular Dystrophy, Becker Muscular Dystrophy to be exact.

When we think…
