I started my blog in 2010 and then stopped it for a year and a half in 2014 until September 2015. I’m going through all the recipes I’ve posted in the last 5.5 years. According to the stats, these are the lesser-known recipes on my blog. Some of them need pictures which I hope to get on the blog soon.
Welcome to day 10 of the 31-day Writing Challenge, which means we are halfway through the challenge. This week I’ve shared a LOT of recipes.
Here are the recipes I’ve shared this week. Click on the picture to go to the post with the recipe.
I also shared my menu plan for this week. Click on the graphic to see our menu for the past week.
The highlight of this week is the homemade brownies I baked on Sunday for dessert. Imaginative One was craving brownies, so he was happy when we had those for dessert.
This is how much was left on Monday. The boys were fighting over who got the pieces stuck to the bottom of the dish. (Click on the picture to go to the recipe.)
We followed the menu plan for this week except for the side dishes on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, we had pasta roni instead of rice a Roni; on Tuesday, we had regular cornbread instead of pumpkin cornbread. It was nice following the menu. It made getting dinner on the table easier.
Every year a local land trust plants sunflowers. People flock to the sunflowers for pictures. This year they bloomed later. We had a rainy June, so they were planted later in the season. We ate dinner on Wednesday evening and went out to see the sunflowers. Afterward, we went to our local dairy for ice cream.
Onto the slow cooker recipe for the day:
An hour south of us in Cincinnati. Cincinnati is known for the Bengals and Reds. Most of all, Cincinnati is known for its chili. It’s a sweet chili instead of a spicy chili. So if you are looking for a different chili, try the Skyline chili.
Hubby, the Wee One, and I went to the Apple Fest at one of our local places. I go there every year and enjoy tasting different foods. There are some foods I look forward to Eating, such as gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum!
Here is what I ate at the Apple Fest:
I also had some freshly pressed apple cider and some apple butter. We bought a bag of kettle corn to share with the Imaginative One when he returns from his camping trip.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I enjoyed at the Apple Fest this year.
This blog has been around for five years (June 2010). However, I stopped writing about it in Feb. 2014. I tried to pick it up on the blogger platform until August 2014 but stopped.
Now I’ve decided to restart the blog. I need ideas of what topics to write about. If you could please comment on this post or on my Facebook page.
That’s the other things I wanted to talk about. I created a Facebook page for this blog back in 2010. I don’t do much with it because I only have 64 likes on the page. I really would like to have more likes on it. It’s named Ramblings of my Crazy Life after my second blog. Here is a link to it. Please go and visit it and post what you would like me to blog about, either cooking or life-wise. If it’s done with cooking or feeding my family, I’m putting it on this blog. I’ll post it on the other blog if it’s about life.
I also have a Pinterest account for this blog. Since I haven’t used this blog lately, I haven’t put anything new on it. I’m not a big Pinterest user, so I don’t go on there often.
My ultimate goal for this blog is to be like a recipe book for my boys when they are young men and start off life cooking for themselves.
I cannot believe that they were only 5 and almost 7 years old when I started this blog. They are now 10 and 12 years old. They still will ask me, “What’s for dinner?” when I come home from work.
Here are some pictures of some foods I cooked or whipped up this week:
Applesauce Overnight Oats
Easy Peasy Garlic Bread
Have a great week. Oh, and the link to my Facebook page is on the sidebar. Please go over and check it out.
So my family has decided we are going to Walt Disney World at the beginning of April. Yesterday we hunted for the pictures we took during our last trip to Disney in 2009 when the boys were 3 and 5. We finally located the majority of the pictures. There was 1 picture I really wanted to find because it is hilarious. I was taking a picture of the German Pavilion in Epcot. When I looked at the picture later, there was a teenager in the middle of the picture, and his expression was like, “Just take my picture already.” It looks like I was taking a picture of him instead of the German pavilion.
