So I've NEVER been good at being on a time schedule!!  I like to plan things out & have my list of what needs to be done, I just DON'T like saying I do this from 6-7PM, this from 7-8, this from 8-10 etc.

That being said due to some comments & attitudes Hoss's World must now add scheduling to the list of craziness!!!

And today I get to figure out a schedule!!  Everything from a time schedule to a what gets done on certain days schedule!!! 

This might be painful!!!!!

Chocolate PB Hi Hat Cupcakes

I totally forgot I hadn't posted these yet.....SORRY!!!!  They are super easy to make & from what I was told YUMMY YUMMY!!!  I don't think any of them made it home from DH work the weekend I made them!!!


Whisk in bowl:
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa powder

Cream together in another bowl:
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/4 c peanut butter
2 large eggs

Once creamed weel add 1/2 cup oil, 3/4 c milk, 1/2 t vanilla.  Mix well & then slowly add the flour mixture.

Fold in 1 cup choc chips.

Bake @ 350 for about 25-30 mins

While baking make your frosting up which is....

1 cup unsalted butter @ room temp, 2 c peanut butter, 4 c powdered sugar, 1/4 c & 2T milk added slowly until well blended.  I don't think I used all the milk.

Once cupcakes are cooled.  Put your frosting into a baggie & pipe a swirl of frosting onto the cupcake.  You can make it as big or small as you like.  Place cupcake in freezer for atleast 1 hour.

Right before you take the cupcakes out of the freezer, melt in the mircowave 2 C chocolate chips & 3 T oil.  Stir till well mixxed.  Let this cool just a second or two....THEN COMES THE FUN PART!!!  Take the cupcake out of the freezer & dunk the top of it in the chocolate!!!!  Let the chocolate drip off the cupcake & then put back into the freezer for it to harden & BAM you have a Chocolate PB Hi Hat Cupcake & a sugar high!!! LOL!!



Today just seems like the perfect day for change!! 

As I kissed DH while he walked out the door this morning headed to work, came back in & changed the TV from the news to a show that believe it or not is 30 mins of crazy quietness, I came to the conclusion that today I'm gonna make a change.

A change for the better!  A change that will bring me closer to the ONE who matters!!!  A change that is gonna mean the world to my family, to me & to those around me!!!

I'm ready to be still & quiet today!!  I'm tired of the loud craziness that has become my life!!!  I've tried to change before but it hasn't totally worked for one reason or the other.

So today I'm making a change.......A change to be more quiet, more peaceful.  To be still just alittle more often!!!

Valentines Day


Nothing special to report here!!!  Pretty much a normal day in Hoss's World.  DH got a special breakfast cooked this morning.......bacon, eggs & toast!!!  That's special cuz normally it's leftover from dinner the night before or a heated up sausage biscuit.  We get up really really early so a big breakfast is not in my vocabulary!!!!

Then we had steak, BP & salad for dinner.....which I must finish cleaning up here in a few mins. 

Hoss got an extra big Dingo as his Valentines present.  And DH got an extra can of snuff & a sweet card from his one &!!!!

Just another day around our house.....mommy's gotta go finish dishes, do some laundry & clean house!!!

Yummy Taters

So the other night we had taters we needed to use up!  I wasn't in the mood for mashed taters, didn't feel like frying taters, DH was tired of baked I made up a yummy concoction!!!! 

I thinly sliced up the taters & probably 2 onions.  Then mixed 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup with some milk in another bowl.

Sprayed the casserole dish with cooking spray then layered taters, onions, soup mixture until everything was gone!!

Baked for about 45 to an hour @ around 425 degrees.

We finished the whole dish.  The only thing I'd change for next time is make 2 betting it would be good in the morning for breakfast with some eggs & sausage patties!!!!
