Navajo Taco and a Closet

Foodie Moment: I thought I would share this meal idea. I found this on some blog, I don't remember where, but it was for Navajo taco's. Simply buy the big grands biscuits(I buy off brand) and flatten them out thin and fry them and they make great scones. We have done it a couple of times and put left over chili and toppings and it works out great. I usually have cheese and sour cream etc, but we were out so I just put lettuce and some ranch and boy was this tasty.

So since we have moved I have been moving things around here and there to make the most out of our space. We have this small closet that we use for our shoes and we most recently needed to add space to it for some pantry items like potatoes and onions. I noticed that we didn't need all the storage spots for the shoes so I was able to fold them up and sew them together to make them short and leave us with some floor space that we can get to easily. It turned out great and if we ever need them longer again we can just unpick the long stitches. I love having a sewing machine and being able to follow through with these little ideas I come up with every once in a while.

The before picture. Sorry I took it half way through. The one on the right is how long they were and the one on the left is after I sewed it.

After: Much better

I know it doesn't look like much but it is perfect for what we need it for:)

A Skill Is Forming

I have a bread making skill that is forming and I am getting better and better. It is not easy and I don't live to make bread or anything but I sure do enjoy having home made baked items on hand.

Here is my first attempt at home made buns and they turned out great:) Also, I am really into steaming fresh green beans and adding the smallest hint of butter and and some garlic salt for flavor.

Here are some bunny buns we made for Conference weekend. I got the idea from a church magazine called The Friend. We couldn't wait for them to cool to frost them and I just used our favorite pretzel recipe.

Here is my latest and greatest! I perfected the Hamburger buns and boy was this good to have for dinner.

Yes! I finally was able to go camping on the East Coast. I had so much fun and I'm really an east coast girl all the way. I love the climate even though it did get a little cold for my taste. My Dad was able to help me out and get me the basic gear I needed for camping so now I can go. There is just something about it that makes me so happy; I get to see the stars, feel warm by the fire, and have my loved ones close. It is awesome! I didn't bring my flash drive for my camera so no pictures but there will be plenty of other times I will bring the camera. Thanks Dad for making this possible.

I recently moved to another city after being in the same apartment for three years. I didn't think it would be that big of deal but boy was I wrong. It is surprising how comfortable you get in the same place and when you move, even when it is a good move, you miss little things about your old place and it is hard to get used to a new living situation.

The move went really well and a big thanks to all the family and friends that helped us out. We are settling in and I really do like it but it will take some time to meet new people and get used to new places.

Happy Anniversary

My Mom and Dad are celebrating their 40th anniversary this weekend and since I haven't blogged a thing in months I thought I would post it. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad and thanks for having a lot of kids so I could be born (I'm 6 of 8)

The whole reason why they got married...that's right, me. Wasn't I such a cute baby?
