I have not disappeared....

I am just extremely busy!

I started teaching 3rd grade this year, while finishing up my Master's degree.

I have not been doing much of anything else!

I hope to post more as things die down a bit!

That was a fail....

Okay, so I fell short on my challenge, but I will still continue to post daily from today on.....

Friday was spent at Kings Dominion with the grandson.  He had a blast and we recovered. LOL
Saturday was spent recovery from said adventure and preparing for my intensive class this week at Liberty.

Sunday was spent also getting assignments done and driving down to Lynchburg.  I will admit that blogging was the last thing on my mind the last three days.

I will do better even though the posts will probably be short due to class and homework. :-)

Day 3--What was under YOUR car today?

This is who was under mine!  He chilled there for awhile and then went on his merry way.

First Harvest of the Year--Day 2 of 31 days of posting challenge!

They are on the small size, but history has taught me that if I do not pick them now, by tonight they are TOO big.  By the number of blossoms out there, I will be busy canning very soon!

Challenging myself

I am going to post each day of July.

Since I have not gone to bed yet, I am counting this as still the first day! :-)

It is worth it.... It is worth it!

School that is.....

Not just MY classes, but the combo of my classwork and the students I work with at the elementary school.

It is all worth it and I will make it through!

No major news, so that will be all for tonight.

Finishing up the month....

and gearing up for next month.

This month has been very full and very busy!

Adjusting to TWO new babies in the house, while school starting back.  Both my work and my classes has been daunting.  So far, so good, but it takes a lot to make sure things are kept on schedule.

Of course, getting a full week off because of snow and freezing temps in nice, but can not rely on having that kind of time anymore.

With one week left of this month, I will finish up the menu and use up what I can from the freezer.  January is usually a tight month and this one is no different. LOL

February is going to be here soon and I hope to keep on schedule with classes and menus. :-)

Dinner Last NIght

Honey Garlic Chicken in the slow cooker.

I did not have chicken thighs, so I used breasts, but other than that I followed the recipe.  I always try and follow a new recipe exactly the first time and then make adjustments after the first try.

I thought I had boneless skinless thighs, but found out I was mistaken. LOL  It was a winner!  I served it with rice and couscous so people could have a choice although most chose both. :-)

I love when I find another slow cooker recipe to add to my list of options.  With my classes starting back up this week, my slow cookers will be getting used A LOT!

Dinner Tonight

I like to make pizza.  My problem is that I can never find a crust recipe that we like, until now...

I was watching "The Pioneer Woman" on the food channel this morning and she made pizza.  The recipe for her crust was super easy compared to ones I have done in the past so I decided to try it!

It is a keeper.  I did not make ours just like hers, but I did use her crust recipe and baked at the temp she did.  I highly recommend it!
