Giving Season

So a very wonderfully smart, strong, vibrant, JOIful person in my family has challenged me to give something every day until the end of the year.  This is the season of giving you know.

So tonight during mine & Hoss's walk/jog we are going to be taking the BAG LOAD of clothes I have been throwing in the corner of the bedroom over to the Christian Ministry office. 

It's a cold, rainy, snowy day here & I'm sure someone could use the clothes & boots that are in that bag.  And I'm positive it will put a smile on their face when they get some warm clothes during these chilly days that are coming.

I've started a list of the things I can "give" this season!!  Mostly all of them are going to cost me nothing!!!  And probably won't take more than a few seconds or minutes of my day.

I'll make sure to let you in on what I'm giving every day!!  And hope that you will join us during this season of giving!!!

Sweet Tater Casserole YUMMINESS!!!!

So DH said I can make amazing Sweet Tater Casserole!!!  And I don't THINK he was pulling my leg this time....LOL!! 

It really was super duper easy!!!!  All I did was cut up 2 HUGE sweet taters, and boiled them

along with some cinnamon & allspice (I didn't measure....just sprinkled some in)

I probably boiled them for like ummmmm FOREVER.....LOL not really but it seemed like it.  Probably a good 20 mins or so until they were mushy.

Drained the taters........

And then melted probably 3/4 a stick of butter in the pan, added the taters back then added more cinnamon, allspice & some brownsugar and went to mashing!!!!

And I really mashed them....didn't whip at all!!  And truthfully I THINK that was a first for me!!!  Kinda fun to take out a few frustrations!!!!

Then I found these cool little casserole dishes at the grocery store.......

Aren't they cute!!  They are the perfect size for one!!  Cuz in our house only DH eats sweet taters!!!  So I made 2 of for Thanksgiving day & one for this weekend for him!!!

Sprinkled some more brown sugar on the top.  And baked at 350 for about 20-30 mins. 

See super duper easy....and apparently very yummy!!!!

What great new goodie did you cook up this weekend????

So the other day I needed a HUGE sugar/baking rush!!  So what is better than peanut butter cookies with Hershey's Kisses in them!!

So while I was standing in the baking isle I saw these.......

Little Mini Kisses!!!  How stinkin cute are they!!!!!

So then in my let's make something fast & easy way of thinking I ran over and picked up.....

And to tell you the truth that cashier at the grocery store couldn't have rung my up fast enough!!!  I was SOOOOO READY for my sugar rush!!!!

I MIGHT have not even put up all the groceries BEFORE I started baking cookies!!!  But don't tell anyone!!!!

I scooped the dough into my little muffin tin, baked for 8-10 minutes!!  And as SOON as they came I put the kisses in them.

Let them cool for a few minutes and BAM......

                               SUGAR RUSH HIGH!!!!!!

                  Public service announcement for the day............

When you wake in the morning, splash some water on your face & THEN go make you a cup of coffee!!  Because if you aren't totally awake when you try to make coffee the following will happen...

*You will forget to plug the coffee maker in & will spend 5 mins trying to figure out why it won't come on!!!

*You will forget to put water in the coffee maker so once you finally plug in the coffee maker it still won't work!!

*And once you FINALLY get the coffee started & poured, you'll get the wrong creamer out of the fridge and have to pour a whole nother cup!!!!

Not that I know this from experience or anything.........

The Weekend

We had a rough weekend round these parts!!!!  Can't ya tell!!!!

With the leaves changing comes much cooler Saturday H figured it would be a wonderful day to be lazy!!!  And just for the record mommy didn't argue any!!!!  With all the sniffling & sneezing she has done lately she didn't mind a few hours of laziness!!!

We woke up Sunday morning & mommy needed a day of clearing her head.  Has anyone else had a day like that????  Please say yes cuz if not I'm gonna feel like a total retard!!!  So needless to say we had a head clearing day.  And now that it's 9:11 PM I can say that it was a productive day!!!  I feel lots better about somethings that are happening in our lives.  Lots better about passing the worry torch on....whatever happens I'm good!!  We are good & all is gonna be fine!!!
