Back to School Review

Standard


A couple of weeks ago I went to our “Back to School” page with the intention of adding a few more things. I was amazed at how I still needed to heed my own advice!! It’s so easy (for me at least) to slip out of our routines somewhere around mid-year and wonder why things aren’t working like they were.

Click here to visit the page and review: We have breakfast and lunch ideas, how to prepare the night before, things you can do to ensure you get out the door in time, and organizational ideas.

I got rejuvenated for the new year, now it’s your turn.

Yummy Monday: Banana Blueberry Muffins

Standard

My mom shared this recipe with me a while back, I think she may have gotten it from my sister.
It’s an extremely quick and easy recipe to make, and the muffins are naturally moist.
It is also wonderful to use for those couple of bananas that have gotten a little too ripe.
The only thing you may not have on hand are the blueberries but worth buying some!

Click here to our “Yummy Monday” page and browse through our collection of recipe!

Banana Blueberry Muffins

YIELD: 12 regular size muffins

3 large ripe bananas
3/4 C sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/3 C melted butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C flour (I actually like to add another 1/4 C – I think they just bake up a bit nicer)

Another Yummy Monday Recipe

Biscuits and Beef Gravy

or what’s affectionately known as “SOS”

It’s what’s for Breakfast, or dinner as was the case for my family the other night!

There may be some who will argue rather SOS could be known affectionately, but in my house growing up (and even with the grandkids) we LOVE  “SOS” and get super excited to see it’s what’s breakfast!

If you are from a military family then you know what SOS is . . . But there may be some out there that have no clue.

So let me tell you what it is:
It is commonly referred to by those who have served in the military by the dysphemism, “Shit on a Shingle,” a white sauce or gravy made with meat and served on toast.

The recipe in the mess halls most often used chipped beef, but ground beef is commonly used. There are also those who like to use sausage.

The shingle is usually toast. But almost anything can be used such as english muffins or my personal choice, my dad’s famous buttermilk biscuits.

And, the phrase can be borrowed to replace the usage of your usual 4 letter words.
I’ll have to give it try next time I stub my toe, “Oh sh*t on a shingle!”

I just realized tonight that I left off the one of the most important ingredients in my Blueberry Buckle recipe . . . the flour!!

It has been posted since early July, and I’m just now finding out, I’ve probably had people cussing me out all along ;( and thinking this is the worst recipe ever!! I apologize!!

Anyway click on over (scroll down a couple of recipes) and read the corrected recipe and then try it out, you won’t be sorry.

Bacon Tomato Mushroom Quiche

Standard

A quiche is great for any meal and you can put a variety of ingredients into it.  I chose tomatoes, because my garden is producing a plethera of them right now.  I love mushrooms, so I had to throw some of those in and bacon in quiche is soooo delicious.  Be adventurous and throw your favorite veggies, meats, and cheese into your quiche.  Enjoy the recipe!

BACK TO SCHOOL! Can you believe it’s here already?

Standard

“Where did the summer go?” For most of us, it’s always a bittersweet feeling when school rolls around again.

We thought since we could use a lot of help in getting ourselves geared up and organized with the back to school madness and all that that entails, we might as well share some of our findings with you.

We ended up with so much information we were afraid it would be too long for a single post. So we decided to make an ongoing “Back to School” series.

How much more excitement can one take?

Come back everyday this week and find out what you might be missing!
Monday: The Breakfast Club!
Tuesday: DON’T – Take it on the Run!
Wednesday: Out to Lunch!
