Last post of 2009

Really glad it's over. I would love to wake up tomorrow and it be a bright and shiny new day. But then reality will set in. I would love to say that this has been one hell of a year, but if was rough, just like years before. Yes, there was good moments.....but there should of been more. We all get so caught up in life. Things we have no power to change. With the New Year I should have a big ole list of resolutions. But I don't because I never stick to them. Instead I'm just going to take one day at a time and be thankful for what I have, what we have, not dwell on the past and live it comes! Happy New Year!

Pear Bread

First off I have to mention that mom took me to Vidler's yesterday. A fun store in East Aurora, NY. Loved their cooking section!! I could go nuts in there if I had any decent amount of money, lol.

We got a basket of fruits from henry's dad and stepmom for Christmas. My girls devoured all the apples but I still had some pears left. So when you have pears...make Pear Bread!!
I got the recipe from
It's really good, enjoying some right now with a cup of coffee!

New List for 2010

I think my new list will be a bit easier to keep up with

I'll add more later....must actually get some housework done right now.

Pumpkin Cookies
Apple Bars

Lillie's Pumpkin
Niagara River gorge.

Lewiston-Queenston Bridge.
I Love Fall!

Easy Taco Pie and nope I'm still here....

Taco Pie
1 lb ground beef
1/2 c. salsa
2 tbsp taco seasoning
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 c. baking mix
In a lage skillet cook beef, stir in salsa and taco seasoning. Transfer to a greased 9 in pie plate, sprinkle with cheese. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk and baking mix, just until blended, pour over cheese. Bake at 400 for 25-30 minutes. Serves six.
Quick, easy and gets devoured quickly! Got the recipe frome Taste of Home's Quick Cooking Jan/Feb 2003 issue. Changed it a little to suit our family's taste. In other words I left out 1 large onion chopped and 1/4 tsp of pepper. There's enough onion in the salsa for my taste.
Today I'll be baking with pumpkin and apples. And there will be some pumpkin carving going on here. So hopefully I'll have some photos of that to share with you. If I can keep my children off my computer I may be able to spend a little more time here. :)

Summer's Ending

Only one more week till school starts. Summer is offically coming to an end, even though we barely had one this year. I can already feel fall in the air. I'm not really complaing, fall is my favorite time of year. We took the girls to the Wilson field days yesterday. Watched the parade and let them go on a few rides. It was a good day....good family fun!

In effort to start blogging more...I'm sharing my dinner with you. I'm all about quick and easy dinners. This one I found in my favorite recipe magazine Everyday Food . It's called Chicken, Ham, and Cheese Roll-Ups . The only thing I did differently is added a little garlic salt, next time I think I may add more. So thumbs up, it was very good!

World's worst blogger....checkin in!

This is Max! We thought we lost him sometime last year around September. Well this past Saturday night he found us again! 9 months he's been gone. I am still in shock and disbelief. He is skinny and dirty. Only God and him know where he has been.
