There are kitchens all around the world that have many things to share. Many cooking adventures that can make you laugh so hard that you wish you had someone to tell. So grab you a cup of coffee and have a seat in front of you computer and spend some time with some friends.Tell us what you cooked for dinner or share with us how your day went.I know that in my kitchen;this is where most of the action of the day takes place with a family of seven.So come on and jump in about anything!
i have had some really tough times and today I have gotten some really good news. My kids were taking martial arts and they stopped us from coming six months ago because payments got behind. Which was not my fault but there's because they put my money all on one kid instead of putting it on two children. I made them an offer and they took it! Kids start back Monday! I'm so happy!
As fall comes upon us slowly all I can do is get excited. Snuggling in my warm kitchen baking my favorite fall recipes. The family memories fill my head as I think about how special these times are for me. Time has gone by year by year and this month I will be 40 on the twenty-third. I now have a daughter married and moving into her own place and a beautiful grandchild she has given me. Things have changed so rapidly since a year ago . We have had many trials as victories. There are mornings I get up and take a breather thinking wow! Slow down life !
But I have learned that we have to slow down and take in the moments or we will miss them. With so many things going on in life it can sometimes feel overwhelming . But I sit with God and thank him for all the treasures in my life. He shows me where the fruit of all my labor has come to harvest. My daughter knows how to be a loving mother and wife from the lessons I took the time to teach her as she was growing at home. My other children still at home are looking at life the way I instructed them to see. With love and forgiveness towards others as Jesus gave to us. And an awareness of the evil that is all around them. Not to be afraid but stand for what they know is right even though in others it may seem wrong.
So even thou the world is falling apart in values and morals ; I still can have peace in knowing my children see through eyes of grace and they are strong in their souls to stand in these days. So I see this fall as harvest time for me and my family for the new year that is ahead of us. This thanksgiving will be more than just a turkey and shopping. And Christmas more than gifts and memories. These holiday months will be a celebration of how far we all have come and of how far we will go. I thought when I turned forty I would be like ,old. Lol. But I feel young and alive. Now I'm living life not just existing . Everything that I had put into my family is coming to harvest. I am just watching all come forth and enjoying all I see in them,making sure not to miss a second of it.
Baking this fall will be a treat. New recipes and smells in my kitchen added to the old time favorites. It resembles our lives this year. Thanks for letting me share with you my thoughts and feelings this morning. I pray that you too can see your harvest as well. God bless all of you and your families! :)
I have not been able to get in here for awhile and tonight it let me in. So if you be so kind as to introduce yourself to me if we have not met I would be very great full .For those who do not know me I am a mother of five from Alabama .I love to cook. I have many recipes in Pinterest and in a group on face book called Debs kitchen. Look me up!
On august 28 my daughter gave me my first grand baby . Seraine Trinity Logan 6 pound 6 ounces. So it's been real nice to have a baby around again. I have made lots of new recipes that I will be sharing in my group so keep checking back.
My daughter loves those breakfast sausage wrapped in pancake on a stick things (like corndogs) you can get in the freezer section at the store. The problem?
(a) I rarely trust the ingredients in pre-processed foods.
(b) We're poor.
I've tried twice now, but can't seem to get my pancake batter to stick to the sausage to deep fry them, and I would really like to make a huge batch of these for the freezer for her in the mornings. Can anyone help?
