snotty girlMost our family has a yucky cold, in a one year old with long hair that means snot crusted to her face with hairs stuck like cement… This little gal just got “de-boogered” in the bath and we are hoping these braids can keep the hair out of the war zone for at least a few hours.

Another night of wrestling for my favorite 5 year old in the 43 lb weight class. He has so much fun, win or loose he is still all smiles which I adore! #wrestling #goodjoblittlebuddy

My weird kid stole my phone and left me a goofy selfie… Makes me laugh, she is an odd ball just like her Mom.

bologna

Just a little peek at our lives playing out on social media this weekend…

My husband comes home all excited to try a new recipe for dinner tomorrow. Marinated and grilled Bologna steaks, topped with homemade coleslaw. He even had 1 inch steaks cut from the deli at Albertsons …. Ummmmm if I’m going to come home with $16 in meat I can guarantee you it ain’t going to be Bologna. I found this both irritating and hilarious all at the same time. Yet another reason I love my quirky guy I get to call my husband, he keeps life interesting. #grossrecipes #weresthebeef#wholooksupbolognarecipes#whyguysshouldnotusepinterest #family

bolognaJust in case any of you wanted to know how the Bologna steak sandwich turned out (yes the $16 mistake in my mind lol). I Made sure to have lots of sides in an effort to try and save my kids in case it was disgusting, that way there was something to eat. BUT we ended up not needing them.  Shocking they where actually kinda good ( and I don’t even like Bologna) the marinade was good and the BBQ made the edges nice and crisp. We did cut the 1 inch in half so it was only 1/2 inch instead…… I don’t plan to put it on our regular menu, but it was better than I expected. 3 of my kids asked for 2nds. After they got brave enough to taste it the first time.

If you do not already follow us on Instagram we would love to have you, and share in the Moments We Want To Remember each week!Grandma Callahans vintage dressI went to a Halloween party yesterday in my Grandma Callahan’s vintage clothes. She passed away two years ago, I miss her dearly. She had lots of cute clothes from her younger years which some of my cousins inherited. This double knit outfit was in a pile that no one wanted, my Mom thought maybe she would turn some of her old clothes into a quilt instead of donating them to DI. I was pregnant and it didn’t fit and I even thought it was a tad ugly… Yet it was a piece of my Grandma’s history… Her story. So I took it home with me.
I had bought this hat and another dress at a vintage sale and planned to wear it today.. But out of the blue remembered my Grandma’s dress so I tried it on… IT FIT. I got all emotional, so strange to be wearing her clothes. I wonder what she did or saw in this dress? Wish I could ask her.
So today I went dressed as my cute hip Grandma… I am so glad I saved this dress. I’m rather fond of it now… Heck I might even wear it to church. Love you Grandma thanks for being such a huge part of my life!

Funnel cake Recipe, Fair Food so easy to makeWe went to the fair last week, my husband bought a funnel cake to show Johann our boy from France how good they are.  We enjoyed it but I told the kids next time we need to make them at home for a fraction of the price.  Here is the recipe I posted a few years ago on how to make Funnel Cakes. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

****************************

So I am 30+ years old and never had a Funnel cake, yes I have seen them at the fair, and heard everyone rant and rave about how good they are……but I have never been willing to pay the inflated $5 fee they charge for carnival food.

Matt’s parents have been making them at home since the 70’s, back in Rhode Island.  They wanted to make them for the Grandkids this weekend.  It was rather fun….cost pennies to make and the kids and I LOVED it.

Funnel Cakes

  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 TBS Sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups Sifted Flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 TBS baking powder

Beat egg, add milk, sift salt, sugar, flour and Baking powder together. Add eggs and milk. Beat until smooth. Pour batter into funnel. Funnel into oil that is 350 degrees (recipe makes 3 large funnel cakes)

You want to overlap the batter to create a “cake” that will form a solid shape that you can flip, to brown the other side.

Once both sides are golden brown, drain on paper towels  and top with powdered sugar.

IMG_2858IMG_2867The outside has a great little crunch, and the inside is light a fluffy…..YUMMY!

Thanks Granny and Papa these were great!

You can also use the same batter and dip these rosettes in it and then place them in the oil. With a little shake the batter comes off the rosette and you can finish frying them.
