It is hot out, so to me that means ice cream and frozen treats! I am not a huge fan of just a plain bowl of ice cream, I love mine loaded up with toppings. That is, unless the ice cream itself is filled with extra yummy goodness Even then, I have been known to put a drizzle of hot fudge on top. I don’t have ice cream that often, so I kind have a “go big or go home” attitude about it.
I have a special post for you today. “Today’s event is being hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. They teamed up with their blogger friends to help raise awareness and support for Cancer and Hospice today in memory of Kim’s dad. We encourage everyone to read the posts and share their own experiences with cancer. We also would like to encourage everyone to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, the American Cancer Societyand also to the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. Hospice was a key element during Kim’s father’s battle with cancer. They made it possible for Kim to care for him at home. So please show your support and donate if you can. You can also contact your local Hospice and donate directly to them if you wish. A little goes a long way! ”

Do you have a favorite flavor? Coconut, Almond, Caramel etc? It can be hard to pick, but one of my favorite flavors is Heath toffee. A lot of people think of it as a holiday flavor, but I could eat it every day of the year. Cookies, Brownies, Bars…you can put it in just about anything, and I am happy! Continue reading →

Sometimes you just want cookies for breakfast. You know that isn’t wise, but it doesn’t stop you from wanting them, does it? OK, maybe this is just me. I have a horrible sweet tooth, and could eat dessert all day every day. So instead of cookies for breakfast, I made pancakes. They aren’t health food, but they are way better for you than cookies would be for you
I am happy to report that jury duty yesterday lasted about two hours. I got there to check in at 8:00, and I was home by 10:00. The case that I was going to be considered for was going to be a 2 week fraud trial. Thankfully, it was settled outside of court Sunday evening. The man is now in jail, and will be there for quite a few years. I am really glad I didn’t have to sit through a 2 week trial, but the thought of actually saying someone would have to go to jail is kind of scary. That is a lot of responsibility! I am just hoping it is going to be a long time before I get called again.
This was the first weekend that I have been home in a month. It was so nice not to be traveling, and have some relaxation time. Although we did head to Denver to explore some and meet my brother and SIL for lunch. Today on the other hand, is a stressful day. I was summoned for jury duty, and have to spend the day seeing if I will be selected to sit on a jury. Given I stay home with my 8 year old, this is a hectic thing to have happen. Luckily, I have amazing friends, and a husband with a flexible job. Now let’s just hope I don’t have to come back tomorrow

Shrimp is one of my favorite proteins to cook with. I couldn’t have said that two years ago. Not only did I not really like eating it, but I never knew when it was done. So when I did cook it for my husband, I almost always over cooked it. A lot has changed. Now that I like shrimp, I can tell when it is done. Plus it cooks so quickly, it is great for busy nights.
Summer break is officially here. My son finished his last day of school last Friday. Since then we have been busy. We have gone to the neighborhood pool a couple of times, spent the weekend with friends, and his baseball season is in full swing. Watching 2nd graders pitch in baseball, is pretty darn entertaining! The other night my 8 year old hit the ball every time he was up to bat, which in my opinion is all you can ask for!
