Make it Monday...

I'm a little late in posting my recipe for Carla's recipe carnival but I realized this recipe would work since we are having it tomorrow night. This week's theme was Meat dishes. My recipe is called BBQ Cups. It's a 4 ingredient recipe from a book by almost the same title. I got the book from my granny for my wedding and it has been a wonderful little cookbook since all the recipes have only 4 ingredients.

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 c barbecue sauce
1 can refrigerator biscuits
3/4 c grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown meat, drain. Add barbecue sauce and set aside. Place biscuits in ungreased muffin cups, pressing dough up sides of edge of cup. Spoon meat mixture into cups. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 12 minutes. Serves 4 to 5.

No Surprise

It's time for another reveal at Just My Sketches. This time I chose the song "No Surprise" by Chris Daughtry. I also took the sketch and flipped it so I could use these pictures. I took them when we were back visiting Illinois for Christmas. The girls had a day out on Monday and we went to the new chipmunks movie. Hannah and Madison (cousins) were hilarious in the theater. The dryers in the bathroom cracked them up because they were loud and very strong. They had such a blast at the movie. We couldn't find 5 chairs together so they got to be big girls and sit in front of my mom, me and my sister. It was so much fun! Be sure to visit Just My Sketches to check out the other great layouts!

UHU Valentine Box

I was sent this little box to decorate from UHU glue. I used the permanent glue dot runner to attach the paper. I love this dot runner! It works so wonderfully. Not stringy and it keeps things in place. I inked the edges a bit then, I did some stamping for the front of the box. I attached the gems with the UHU Twist & Glue. Great little box for treats!

18 weeks

I took some pictures of myself last week when I was 18 weeks. I'm a little behind because I will be 20 weeks on Sunday but it's better late than never, right? We have an ultrasound on Monday! Yeah!

Make it Monday...

or Tuesday if you're sick & have to call your Mom for the recipe :) So yesterday Carla's theme was snacks and Chex Mix has always been a favorite with us. So after calling my mom to get the recipe, here it is:

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
1 stick (1/2 c.) melted butter
1 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
4 1/2 tsp. worchestire sauce
Mix together.
Now for the next part my mom takes a big measuring cup/bowl and layers the following ingredients in the order listed:
1 c. peanuts
1 c. pretzels
8 c. Chex mix (any variety you wish)

Pour the dry ingredients into a pan and stir to mix. The pan should be larger than 9x13 or there won't be enough room to mix. Cook at 15 min. intervals (stop every 15 min. to mix) for 1 hour. Enjoy!

Today is...

February 1st and the layouts and cards are up at Just My Sketches. If you haven't checked them out make sure you do - there are a bunch of amazing layouts and cards. Here is the page I made for the sketch. I was inspired by the song "Blessed" by Elton John. The lyrics mainly inspired me because they talked about "not knowing the color of your eyes" but knowing you would be blessed. So I used more ultrasound pics from Baby #3. I wrote out the lyrics and put them on the hidden journaling slipped behind the striped paper.
