Our Family

banddaidRandom fact … I am GUILTY of hiding band-aids in strange places in my home … I always have more “just in case”.  Because when I REALLY need a band-aid the box is always empty thanks to my children and their attempts to save the world like Dr. Quinn medicine woman.

WHY you ask, because I have 5 small children. If the package of band-aid is just put on the shelf somehow my children are drawn to it like bees to honey or flies to food.  That freaky little box of band-aids calls out to my children and in NO TIME flat all 25 band-aids have been  unwrapped (wrapper tossed on the floor for the magic maid fairy aka MOM to pick up later) and used for the most tragic traumas you have ever seen.   Here are a few examples of traumas and life saving support  these band-aids have offered my children in the past…

1. Promptly put on a 3 week old wound were there once was a scab, that has now fallen off and all that remains is healed skin.

2. All over the wall, in a random pattern … some even over lapping.  Maybe this is modern art and I am just to old school to see its divine potential?

3. On little brothers “Butt Crack” since he broke his bum.

4. All over the TV, because scrapping sticky things off electronics just makes Mom SO happy… not.

5.  In a path on the floor, and they stick like you would not believe.  Left there so I can follow it like bear tracks right to the guilty party.  When I follow the trial it somehow always leads me right to my kids.  When I ask them WHO used all the band-aids they all look at me and say “NOT ME”.  Yet they are polka-dotted with them…. how then, did that band-aid end up right in the middle of their forehead?   ( I told you these band-aids are freaky little things and can not be trusted…lol).

So that my friends is why I Hoard/ Hide band-aids in random weird places in my home.  So do not be shocked if you put on a stocking hat in the middle of summer only to find a box of band-aids inside, or open up my printer and find Mrs. Piggy and Kermit the Frog hanging out band-aid style under the lid.

Just in case you need to stock up here are some band-aids that will ship right to your door:

WHITE CASTLE BURGER COPYCAT RECIPE, BAKED IN THE OVEN SO EASY, White Castle sliders recipeHi everyone and welcome to our site. We created this post a few years ago it was not planned, we were making White Castle Burgers for dinner and decided to snap a few last minute photos on our phone.  But when I see this recipe photos I have to cringe a little… so I decided to keep the recipe as is, but I wanted to add a few updated photos. Yes I know it is a fast food recipe so who cares if it is pretty or not… but it just makes me feel better having a photo that is actually in focus, lol. Enjoy!

White Castle Burger Copycat recipeSo many grew up on the famous White Castle burgers. They are even know as the first chain restaurant! So how do you make a White Castle Burger or “Slider“? It is quite easy and I will even show you an easy way to cook them up too so you get the nice thin patty of meat! And the best part out side of taste is that they are cooked in the oven! Yes cook your hamburger in the oven in 20 mins! The patties come out so nice and flat and are cooked perfectly on the onions!

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.
