After I was done visiting Zanesville, I drove the 10 or so miles to New Concord. New Concord is known as being the hometown of John Glenn.
Every year, I love to take photos of the boys on or near the first day of school. I took some before they headed out on their first day. Then 2 days later, we took the official photos. I love seeing how much they have grown in a year. Read More
I’ve wanted to make my own nut butter for a while. Once I finally made it, I was so happy that I did. Homemade nut butter has a much fresher taste than store bought. Plus you can control the ingredients.
The key to making nut butter is to first roast the nuts. Roasting them helps to release the oils. Don’t add oil to the nut butter. It is just gross tasting and nasty. Don’t ask how I know. Roasting the nuts is better. Trust me.
Since fall is quickly approaching, I decided to make a pecan pumpkin butter with pumpkin spice. YUM!
Ingredients needed for Homemade Pecan Pumpkin Nut Butter
- Pumpkin seeds
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
Homemade Pecan Pumpkin Nut Butter
You need to keep in the fridge. It should last about 3 weeks if you don’t eat it all soon after you make it.
I really want to make some pumpkin butter. I would have it on top of toast and this nut butter. That sounds so good.
You can use less pecans and more pumpkin seeds if you desire.
Last night I was sorting through the laundry. My stuff, the Imaginative One’s, the Wee One’s, and dish towels were placed in different piles.
As I was sorting and calling the boys to come get their laundry, I found this mysterious baby sock.
I don’t know where it came from. I mentioned it to one of the boys this morning but he didn’t know where it came from.
I recognized it from 13 years ago. Where had it been for the last 13 years? Why was it in our laundry?
I know it hadn’t been in the dryer for the last 13 years because we had gotten a new dryer since the boys were little babies.
It might fit on the big toe of the Imaginative One.
The Wee One might make it a challenge to put it on his foot.
Until then we don’t know where this mysterious sock came from.
Have you ever found something that you don’t know where it’s come from?
Have a magical day,
This is the first week back with students so I want to have an easy menu.
I also meal prepped for my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks. Here’s what I made for this week:
Breakfasts – Pina Colada Overnight Oats
Snacks – Pistachios, Honeycrisp apples with cashew butter, Mini Bell Peppers with hummus
Lunches – Salad in a jar with strawberry poppy seed dressing, homemade fruit on the bottom yogurt with granola
Since I have all my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks prepped, it’s easy to grab and go in the mornings.
The Golden Lamb is known as the oldest continuous running inn in Ohio. Operations began in 1803 and still continue today. In fact, there was only 4 vacant rooms left on the day we visited the Golden Lamb.
Here is the link to part 1 of our visit.
Here are photos of the fire board my Great Uncle painted in 1971.
Until next time, have a magical day,
