We are having an early celebration and our big meal is today at 1:00. The reason is that my precious mom is having major surgery the day before the official holiday and I will be there to help care for my parent’s needs. I’m so thankful I can go be with them. Who says you have to celebrate on the official Thanksgiving day? My girls were more than happy to celebrate a Continue reading “An Early Thanksgiving”→
Crispy, char-grilled pizza crust, savory sauce, melted cheese and toppings of choice were part of our menu for Apples of Gold this week! We added an Olive Garden Salad, and we finished with Brown Sugar Glazed Pineapple slices topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was heavenly. I love this menu because most of it can be done ahead of time, so that dinner can be ready in minutes!!
If you’re saying, “Grilled Pizza?” you’ve missed my former posts about this grilled delight! It sounds intimidating to grill a pizza, but it’s SO simple!! As I told the ladies at our Apples of Gold meeting, you can have this finished before Pizza Hut could deliver to your door! This recipe makes 8 individual pizzas that are hearty in size!
How thankful I am each year to get to celebrate Father’s Day. I am blessed with terrific men in my life that I’m happy to celebrate each June. My precious dad and my husband have been such godly fathers and it’s a joy to celebrate them each June!
This year our girls were both home to attend church with us, and then have dinner. We don’t need a reason to have Sunday dinner – it’s a given at our house, but I did go to a little more effort to decorate the table with a theme for Father’s Day. I found this Continue reading “Father’s Day/Sunday Dinner”→
I thought I’d give you some updates on what I’ve been doing recently!
Let’s start with some music!
What I’m singing – Jesus Thank you.
Without Good Friday there would be no Easter! We are saddened by Christ’s crucifixion, but yet it was His purpose in coming to earth. He came to die. Isn’t that sobering? Wow. How wonderful to have a Savior Who loved us so much that He would knowingly give His life so we could have a relationship with Him and live with Him forever in heaven. Without it we would be lost in our sin!Continue reading “Fun Things Friday”→
Isn’t it amazing how fast vacation time flies by? I had an app on my phone that told me how many more days ’til vacation. Then, woosh! It’s done! It’s also easy to forget everything that happened. It’s for that reason that I try to journal each day I’m away. I try to log what we did and what the highlights of the day were. I write down any fun places we discovered, any new restaurants we enjoyed and also special things that we shared as a couple in our day together. Then when I get home I can read back over my writings and can relive our time away!
I have had some comments both here on my blog and in person about struggles with setting the dinner table and making mealtime a family highlight of the day. I’d like to offer some suggestions that might make it easier for you to accomplish this! It’s not about making your house look like the Biltmore dining room. It’s simply about putting out what will be needed for the meal – silverware, plate, glass, and napkin so the meal can be eaten and enjoyed.
