Today I don;t have a recipe, but I have a great free recipe source! Kraft Foods
If you go to this site you can sign up for their free magazine full of recipes that are kid friendly and down to earth. I have made many recipes from these mags. Some where hits others where not, but there is enough that you should be able to find what suits your family. The web site also is loaded with recipes and tips. Hope you sign up today!
Also, I just wanted to share with you what I spent at the grocery store yesterday. We only have two places to shop for food here, there's no double coupons, etc, so food shopping can be a pain sometimes. Anyway, I spent $25.02 on 3 gallons of milk, 2 cartons of strawberries, lettuce, 5 kiwi, broc, 24 eggs, 2 lb carrots, 2 pkgs hot dogs, 3 lbs apples, cabbage, 1 lb onions, 8 sm oranges, 2 lb bananas! I don't know about you, but that was a great deal! As everything has gone up, I am really trying to find the best deals. I had to dig through the produce to find good ones, but it was worth it!
Have a great day!

Affresh is a MUCH needed item if you have a front loading washer. Ours began to get mold. I called the company. They told me since the front loaders are sealed so tight that mold starts go grow, etc. So, if you have a front loader that has no mold or smell, you can use one tablet per month. If your washer has mold and smells you need three tablets per month until mold is gone. Each package comes with three tablets. I found ours online as no store here carries them. The price varies from place to place. So shop around.
Have a great day!

Today, I have a recipe that is one that when the kids ask me what's for dinner they get excited. It's great for Robert to take leftovers to work and is different everytime. Well, what is it you ask!! It's called Cheap Chili on the recipe card, but we call it Pistilli Chili as we got it from our dear friends!
So here you go. (Remember these are printable!)
Pistilli Chili (great doubled)
1 lb. ground meat (any will do) cooked and drained well (can do w/o too)
1 can pinto beans (I used kidney beans when I was out of pinto)
1 can white or yellow hominey (Robert prefers white)
1-2 cans stewed tomatoes
1 envelope Chili mix (hot or mild, up to you)
1-2 small cans tomato sauce
You can stretch it with more sauce or beans.
Optional - Add chopped onions, mushrooms, chopped potatoes (canned work great)
Put it all together, boil, simmer, and serve.
Toppings: shredded chesse, extra onions.
Serve with cornbread, over rice or mashed potatoes.
Can use leftonvers for chilidogs.
Freezes great too.
Hope you enjoy this dish! Have a great day~
P.S. If there's a recipe that you'd like, please ask for it in the comments!

Pictire 1. (after opening PSE)
Click the photo you want to work on.
Picture 2. In the layers section right click on the photo layer and select Duplicate Layer
Picture 3. In the layers sections still click on the arrow by Normal. A long window will come up.
A dear friend asked me to do this. Do here it goes. The pictures aren't the greatest but I think you'll get the idea. Also, this is using Photoshop Elements.
How to get your pictures from Pictures A to Picture B.

We had our first full day of sun today. It was nice to see the sun, though we stayed in most of it. We are (Robert's) cleaning out the office, getting it ready for homeschool. In doing so we found a shoe box full of great pictures!! It's always so fun to look at the "old" days. A lot were of Colleen when she was about twoish.
Here's a story for you. This evening J found a baby bird in the yard. It was old enough to fly, but wasn't. The parents were right there on the fence sqwaking and sqwaking at J to get away and to the baby bird. Watching the mother and father bird encourage (sounded more like yelling) their baby, I couldn't help but think about God. Sometimes we are the baby bird who should be able to fly but for some reason can't. God is there the whole time telling us "Come on, you can do it!" All the while keeping predators away. The birds didn't leave the baby, yet were far enough for the baby to get up and do it itself. The baby bird called out to it's parents, it knew they were there to help it and protect it, just like us and God. Needless to say the baby made it. The yard is much quieter and somehow I saw God today in those birds.

About the slide show. It's a new addon that I'm trying out. I want to get it to the side or bottom of my page so it's there all of the time. But until I figure it out I'll just put new ones in the posts. You can click on the video. You can out music to the slide show. The only chistain music they had was in video form, sorry. You can make it smaller by clicking the x I think. Well, I'm off. Have running around to do. Have a great day!
