The Weekend

3:11 PM

Where do the weekends go?  

Friday morning we went to the National Western Stock Show.  My dad works there during the event (otherwise he's retired) so we got a behind the scenes tours.  We saw the cattle barn, horses, goats, sheep, chickens.  Corrine also got to go on a pony ride!

Saturday was a work day.  No more vacation.  One day of work and then a day off (gotta ease back into work).  Sunday was a baking/cooking day.  I get daily emails from Once a Month Mom.  The idea behind OAMM is cooking/baking for one day to get a month of meals.  They provide the menus and recipes. I don't go quite to the extreme of a whole months worth of cooking.  I like to cook and I'm home enough to make dinner or bake that I don't have to do it all in one day.  Anyhoo, they do have some great recipes.  These are mini apple breakfast tarts.  I bake them, keep some in the fridge and the rest in the freezer.  The recipe says to bake only what you need and bake the rest when you're ready to eat them.  I thought they froze quite nicely already baked and the night before I need some for breakfast, I take them out of the freezer and leave them in the fridge.  Easy Peasy.
I've got granola in the oven right now.  We usually buy granola to mix with yogurt but since I've been making our own yogurt (which I'll post on later this week), I thought why not try making our own?  It was easy enough to make.  We'll see how it turns out in about an hour.  I love knowing where my food is coming from!

Hubby called a little bit ago.  He's on his way to Puerto Vallarta to fix an airplane, so Corrine and I are on our own for the rest of the day.   The only comforting thought in that, is he doesn't get to stay and he is there for work.  However, it will be nice and warm...

How was your weekend?  Joining Amanda.

  1. Enjoyed visiting your blog (from Weekending at The Habit of Being) and seeing your sweet daughter, kitties and your handknits! :)

  2. Home made granola is my favourite, I must make some more soon.

  3. Mmmmm I really need to try that granola recipe, it sounds so yummy! Especially because her recipes are very good. Your husband works on airplanes? That's what my father does! : )

  4. I love to cook too, it is one of my favorite hobbies. Since being on Whole30 I miss making yogurt and granola and have been considering making a few changes in my diet. I am interested in you yogurt recipe, I make mine in the crock pot.

  5. you make your own yogurt? I'm impressed. You most definitely have to ease into your work schedule. Do you do anything extra special to NOT get the flu? Just wondering..

    1. My Dr. insists that I get a flu shot every year. She say between being diabetic and flying around with the public I absolutely must have one. Other than that, I take vitamin C every day and if I feel run down there is some herbal thing I take, but can't remember what it is. Plus I wash my hands a gazillion times a day.

  6. Can you deliver about two dozen of those mini apple tarts to me? Please and thanks :)


I love your comments. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
