Weekend Recap - Picture less Edition

Picture less Because I live with BOYS!!!
and you can't always count on them to take pictures
So lets call it what it is a journal. So sit back for a story.
It started Thursday at the bus stop-Baby Bear got in the car, with 3 other kids (Teen bear stays after school on Thursday for band sectionals/private lesson-so he wasn't one of the 3.)
Baby Bear says he doesn't feel good-I ask whats wrong-he's doubled over and says he doesn't want to talk. Before we make it a block BABY BEAR IS THROWING UP!! ALOT!! IN MY NEW CAR! The 3 evacuate and are graciously very supportive. He got sick 5 more times Thursday night and spent Friday on the couch. Luckily his football game was cancelled because of wet fields. I think he ate something bad at lunch- he never had any other symptoms.

Friday afternoon Papa came home! His time in Canada is over! Both kids were supposed leave for San Antonio and Fiesta Texas Friday night with their church youth group but, baby being sick didn't.

Saturday by the afternoon baby bear is feeling better and goes to the movies with a friend. My Praise Band had a Gig Saturday night- Papa forgot the camera- actually he never thought about bringing it! No pictures.

Sunday teen bear came home- he had a good time. He did take his camera and took 3 in the car. No pictures.
Tune in tomorrow- I'll be posting Canada part II pictures and Da'Ole Bear is coming back for 2 football games- one being tomorrow night! Hope you had a good weekend too!

Why is it that food at someone elses house...

...always tastes better? Or at least our kids think so.
Here is my favorite "Sloppy Joe" recipe. I don't even like Sloppy Joes-
but this recipe made me a convert.
1 lb Hamburger
1/4 onion, Chopped
1/4 Bell Pepper, Chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp White Vinegar
2 Tbsp Mustard
2 Tbsp Sugar
3/4 Cup Ketchup

Brown hamburger in skillet, set aside. Saute onions and peppers. Add hamburger and remaining ingredients. Serve on buns. It's yummy and fast.

Guess what- Baby Bear doesn't like them. He likes Snow White's "Sloppy Joe's". And Sneezy, he likes my cakes made from a box to his mothers homemade cakes- she NEVER uses a box. This drives her crazy!

As a side note- Snow White is out braving the elements tonight. Our football team is having their pictures taken and there are LOTS of other teams and Cheerleaders and rain LOTS of rain. Thanks Snow- for letting me stay home in a warm dry house and blog. Check out her blog- she has a new look

Works for me Wednesday

This is my favorite "South Beach" breakfast. When I'm in the "zone" I make them ahead of time, keep them in the refrigerator and warm up a couple each morning.

12 eggs
half of a 4 oz can diced green chiles, with juice (be sure to use Anaheim chiles, not jalapenos)
about 2 cups Four Cheese Mexican Blend (sharp cheddar is good too)
2 T cream, half and half, or milk1 tsp.
Spike Seasoning (optional)salt/pepper to taste

*I don't use muffins liners

Preheat oven to 375. Put 2 muffin liners in each muffin cup (12 muffin size pan) and spray with nonstick spray. In each muffin liner put a very generous pinch of the grated cheese. The muffin cup should be about 2/3 full before you put the egg in. Break eggs into bowl, add milk or cream and beat until egg whites and yolks are well combined. Add spices and green chiles with juice and mix into eggs. Pour egg mixture over cheese so each muffin cup liner is full to the brim. (This usually takes two pourings as the egg mixture settles over the cheese. Be sure they are as full as you can get them, but not running over the side or you will have a cooked-on egg mess.) I like to take a fork and gently "stir" in each muffin cup to get the cheese evenly distributed in the egg. Bake 375 for 35 minutes, or until all muffins are puffed up and the top is starting to brown.

He has seen great fall color.
