Weekly Update #3

This One Goes Backward

Happy Memorial Day!

Today we remember those that gave their lives in service of this country fighting for our freedom and liberty!

Peni Goes Exploring!

Sunday, after service, Xyra and I went for a bike ride. 
Way at the bottom of the hill is a cul de sac and we found some lovely daisies and a field.

Sharing Recipes

Hey, what are you guys up to?

Peni and I are going through our recipes and comparing notes.

Yeah, we found a few duplicates, but overall have collected different recipes.


We both have a great lemon cake recipe.
But Peni has a fabulous caramel corn recipe.
Grace has one for these awesome butter cookies.
You mean Father cookies?
That's a family recipe. Passed down from great gramma G.
Cool! I can't wait to make that one.
Your potato soup mix sound great!
Hey! What's this one?

Um, yeah, that one is a secret.
Oh, ho!

National Devil's Food Cake Day!

Are we set.
You bet! This looks delicious.
I hope so.
Oh, it is delicious!

Happy National Devil's Food Cake day! (giggles)

What have you been doing this past week? How did you celebrate Memorial Day? Do you have any recipes you love to make?

Have a great day!  See you again soon!

Best wishes!



  1. Aww! Grace's recipe box is so cute! It's kind of like the one my mother has. I tried a new recipe this week - banana chips! They ended up a little sticky and thin, but they mostly worked. Being Canadian, I am not really familiar with Memorial Day. Is it like our Remembrance Day on November 11th?

    1. Hi! Thank you for stopping to comment. Yes, our Memorial Day is like your Remembrance Day. As I recall your Remembrance Day is our Veterans' Day.

      The banana chips sound interesting.

  2. Cute. The last photo shows a teal top with a purple ruffle attached. Where does that come from?

    1. Hi! thank you for stopping by and commenting! That outfit is a My Life As from Wal-Mart from a few years back and by few I mean it could be from 2013 or 2014.

  3. I like making strawberry pretzel salad--although I like eating it better than making it! I did try a new icebox cheesecake recipe over Memorial Day weekend, it was yummy!

    1. I have all the ingredients for strawberry pretzel yum, just no place in the fridge for a completed one. :-( Did you see there is a new pineapple version?

      I don't think I've ever meet a cheese cake I didn't like...unless it had coconut.
