Yummy, Healthy lunch!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

Made these for lunch the other day from a recipe I got off my Whole Foods website. They were so good, kind of tasted like eating a healthy candy bar, so I might of loaded up on the chocolate chips a bit much but even the kids loved these. I got the recipe here: Apple Sandwich

I found a new eye cream and soap. Both are amazing. I had to share. Also the products are organic and added plus. Here is the page for both products. I found these products through this new blog I discovered. I'm having a good time looking over all the past posts. Maybe some of you would enjoy this blog too. Other then that not too much going on. Kids are going back to school in Sept. and we are still here in Washington state. There is a possibility of us being stationed at Ft. Polk Louisiana by December, but as usual with the Army we have not gotten any permanent orders yet. We will have to wait and see what the future holds.

Crock Pot Girl

I just ordered this crock pot from Amazon on the a recommendation I got from my new slow cooker cook book called "Slow Cooker Revolution." I was looking for a crock pot that did not boil the food while cooking on high and this seems to be the one. Of course I will give it a good test once I get it and let you all know. In the meantime, while browsing the reviews for this pot, I came across a reviewer who said the facebook page "Crock Pot Girl" was a really neat page. I went over there and WOW, it has a lot of information and recipes. There is also a web site called "Get Crocked" at "" If you are interested go check it out. The crock pot is perfect for summer cooking, especially when you do not want to heat up your kitchen or when a trip to the pool on a summer day is going to make it hard for you to come home and cook dinner on time.

I just got done reading this little book. It was a Christian romance. I really enjoy these short books. I plan on reading many more over the summer. Loved the idea of a girl from a small town moves to a big city then ends up back in the same small town where she finds love at last. I can't resist the happily ever after story. The only thing I wished this book had added was more of a story between the main character and her love interests kids. Other then that it was a nice, quick little read.

Not much new here but it has been sunny so walking to the store every day is something I am enjoying. It is only about a mile round trip but it's better then walking in the rain. On a better note I am reading a good book. It's called The Snow Angel by Glenn Beck. I am totally enjoying this. Usually I get time in the afternoon to sit at my bistro table and dive into a good book and this is the one. I know it's a Christmas read but it is such a good book I just had to read it. It's about hope. books about hope and redemption are always the best Christian reads.

Bad blogger

It terrible that I have neglected my blog for so long, but unlike my hubby's last deployment, we have been using facebook a lot to keep in touch. Well he will be home soon, sometime the end of march so maybe I will get back to blogging a bit. There is always something going on.

Moved from non-renovated quarters to renovated quarters. I am pretty happy with the new look but my favorite part is these glass fronted cabinets. I love them. I will have to give them up once we change duty stations but for now I will enjoy them. On a better note my computer is up and running and Directv guy will be out here tomorrow so I am looking all moved in.

New cookbook

While searching, yet again, for another new crock pot I came across this cookbook. The reviews sounded great. Now I am considering adding this one to my collection. Has anyone else seen this cookbook? I am also considering the Hamilton Beach Premiere Cookware 5-1/2-Quart Slow Cooker which also got great reviews. I love the idea of browning the meat or veggies in the crock itself and then placing it into the base and adding the rest of the ingredients, what could be easier? A chef!

Blueberry muffins and tea

Made some blueberry muffins and had some with tea on Rae Dunn pottery of course
