Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!
Steve and I were able to have a nice Valentine's date on Saturday night! I was like a new woman after being cooped up in the house for four days.
Tonight Steve is cooking dinner for me and we are having crab legs. I LOVE crab legs and all seafood!
I am so thrilled to see sunshine and be back on our normal routine!

For all you singles girls, here is my advice: Wear your favorite outfit, have your favorite food and rent your favorite movie! I used to always do this on Valentine's day!

Just thought you'd like to know so many of my friends are making the Mississippi roast that I came up with the idea of encouraging folks to have company the first weekend of March and make the Mississippi roast. We are calling it "company's coming!" and I hope to encourage others to have company - starting with a tasty and easy menu. (I think so many young gals in my part of the world lack some confidence in having dinner company..) Thank your Aunt for this roast recipe and let her now it's going around Minnesota now! (And, anyone that reads this can host "company's coming" the first weekend in March too!)

Opps, I see it is your husband's Aunt you need to thank for the Mississippi roast. :)

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
