Hello Friends and Children of God,
Another week of life has passed. Happy Sunday Afternoon (or whatever time it is when you read this) and blessings to you. Hope you had a good week and are ready for a new one. My week was another rollercoaster week, they are all like that, filled with things that make me laugh, smile, cry, sigh, scream, frown, things that lifted me up and things that brought my spirit down. Through it all though, I have the true joy, gratitude and peace that could only come from God.
Thanks for visiting with me today. Sunday Show ‘n’ Tell is a weekly post where I share with you my week’s most interesting adventures; things seen, done and experienced. It gives me the opportunity to reflect of life’s awesome blessings. Along with these weekly post, I will host a monthly Link-Up where I’d love for you to share your favorite post old or new. I would love for us to grow in friendship each week.
First i’d like to share that I unintentionally stumbled unto a new way to prepare eggs. Maybe you have done it before, but it is new to me. I was preparing breakfast one morning in the egg poacher, but instead of just cracking the eggs straight in the poacher like I usually do, I whipped them a little bit. They fluffed up and cooked into a cute little muffin shape. I realized that by whipping the eggs I caused them to rise up like a muffin.
So I wanted to do it again , this time intentionally. Another morning, I cut up some mushrooms, jalepenos and hotdogs in tiny cubes, fried them up, whip the eggs, mixed in the mushroom fry-up, sprinkled in some grated cheese, a little black pepper and herbs. Sprayed a cupcake pan with cooking spray, turned the oven to 350° and cooked for about 15 minutes (more or less) and voila, the cutest egg muffins.
This made an awesome new way for my family to prepare eggs for breakfast. My family loves eggs, especially me.
This week I also tried a new recipe I saw at a link-up – Super Simple Chocolate Truffles posted by Merissa from littlehouseliving.com. It only needs two ingredients chocolate and cream cheese. They tasted great. Two of my children loved them and I liked them, but one of my children (the picky eater) did not. I think it is a pretty cool recipe though. Simple to prepare and great taste. As you can see, my presentation could use some work.
This week my 8 year old princess prepared breakfast, with a little stove assistance from daddy, this made me very proud. The eggs where excellent. She used just the right amount of seasoning.
We didn’t have that much picture worthy Lego creations from the kids this week. My son did however create Bigfoot’s feet, as he called them.
This weekend we watched two super hero movies – Disney’s Big Hero 6 and Veggietales: League of Incredible Vegetables. Both were very enjoyable and kid-friendly for the most part. Big Hero 6 has some grown-up topics that would be good for discussion like dealing with the death of a loved one, vengence, forgiveness, friendship, teamwork, dishonesty, etc. and the League deals with handling fear and putting your trust in God. Big Hero 6 is worldly, as Veggietales is more biblical. They are both really funny, especially Big Hero 6, which made me laugh my face off at times. What I like about these films is that they didn’t make me regret letting my children watch them. No romance or crude humor, just one reference to gross underwear hygiene habits (Big Hero 6).
I bought a box of green tea this week. I thought I was buying ordinary green tea, but it turns out I bought Bigelow Green Tea with Wild Blueberry & Acai. It was a happy accident. I love this green tea flavor. I’m going to buy it all the time now.
