Hello!!!!! :-D


My uncle, cousin, and dad left a little while ago to take the hay bales up to my other uncles place. They had about 15 hay bales all stacked up on the trailer! It's loaded down! It's neat to watch them cut, fluff and bale the hay! :-)

Our kittens are growing! I'm going to have to start messing with them pretty soon so that they will be nice and tame! :-D

Here's a scripture.........

Ps 119:11 Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.

There was more cutting of hay today! Also I wrote a little more on one of the two books that I began this year. That's fun! :-D

We had a wonderful supper tonight! Here's the recipe! ;-)

Chicken Pot Pie

1 whole chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans chicken broth
Salt & pepper, to taste
Mixed vegetables

Boil and debone chicken. Place chuncks of chicken in the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan. Mix chicken broth and soup and pour over chicken. Add vegetables.
CRUST: Mix ingredients. Pour this mixture and spread across top. Bake at 350* for approximately 1 hour, or until crust forms on the top and is golden brown.

Baling Hay!

Hello!!! :-)

Yesterday, my uncles, cousin and grandparents came down and brought some equipment to bale hay across the road. We got 3 6/10 in. of rain Wednesday night. PTL!!! We thought that it would dry out enough to go ahead and cut the hay though. They began the process today, and are going to continue for the next few days.

One of my uncles brought a silicone cookware pan. It is kind of weird! :-P You can bend it, fold it around etc. It also feels rubbery or something! But I think that you can turn it upside down and the food will come right out! Some of you may have or have seen this cookware before, but I thought it was pretty interesting!

Todays scripture is............

Col 3:23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men,

...and the recipe is...........

No-Bake Cookies
2 c. sugar

1/2 c. milk
1/2 stick butter
3 T. cocoa
1 t. vanilla
3 c. oats
1/2 c. peanut butter

Mix sugar, milk, butter and cocoa. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Drop onto waxed paper by teaspoons. Let cool.

In Christ,

Some Neat Resources


I just finished reading a book, Sunday, about Samuel Morris. It is a really good book and is based on a true story! The one I read is written by "Kjersti Hoff Baez". Below I quote the story line from the back cover.

Once again, the whip sliced through Kaboo's skin. Held captive by his father's enemies, the young African boy tied to a tree was certain he would die. Only God can perform miracles, and only a miracle could save Kaboo, and in doing so, change the lives of people throughout the world. Kaboo's story is the story of Samuel Morris, an African called to serve God in the United States. His story is an adventure of divine proportions!

This story was very encouraging to me and is a great faith builder! If you have not yet read it I would highly recommend you do! To view the book click here . (We located ours at Mardels.) Some other books in the series are "Corrie Ten Boom" and "
"Pilgrims Progress" just to name a few. Another great resource is "Your Story Hour" and "Patch the Pirate". They have some neat story's on tape! I also enjoy a video and some cassettes we got from "Morning-Time Ministries". (They have some music on them. I am not sure if they have sites or not.)

Well, our kittens seem to be doing well. The mama kitty moved them out of their box though!

We are supposed to get a little bit of a cool front sometime soon. That should be interesting!

Here is the scripture and recipe for today!

Col 3:16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms {and} hymns {and} spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Today's recipe is...................

Wacky Cake (Chocolate)

3 c. flour
6 T. cocoa
2 c. sugar
2 t. soda
1 t. salt

2 c. cold water
3/4 c. oil
2 T. vinegar
2 t. vanilla

Sift together first 5 ingredients. Add last 4 ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased and floured 9 by 13 by 2 inch pan. Bake at 350* for 30 minutes.

Note:This is a moist cake. (Very yummy!) We are not quite sure what kind of frosting you are supposed to put on it, but it is pretty good as is!

Kittens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

Our cat Phoenix had kittens yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She had 8 but one of them did not make it. :-( Phoenix is kind of a gray, tan, black mix with white paws, neck and tummy. She also has long fur. :-)

We got a little rain here today! Praise the Lord! The grass looks so nice and green. We did not get a whole lot but every bit counts!

Well, here's a scripture...

1 Pet 5:7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.

and a recipe. :-) (My mom made it the other day and I really liked it! ) It is called:

Coffee Can Bread

(Now personally, I don't really care for coffee. So if you don't either keep reading because as you will soon find out, all you do is cook the bread in the can to get the neat shape!)

1pkg. dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
1/8 tsp. ginger
3 Tbs. sugar
1 (13 oz.) evap. milk
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. oil
4 c. flour

In large bowl mix yeast, water, ginger and 1 Tbs. sugar. Set aside for about 15 minutes till bubbly. Add rest of ingredients (except flour). Add flour one cup at a time. (First 3 cups can be mixed with mixer.) Pour into 2 (1-lb.) greased coffee cans. Put greased lids on cans. When dough rises and pops lids off cans, place cans in 350* oven for 45 minutes. (Good to Freeze)

In Christ,

A recipe!!!!!!!!!

Hello, Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!

What a pretty sunset there is tonight! ( We don't have a whole lot of trees around our house, so we have a very nice veiw of it!)
Well, earlier today I tried a new recipe, at least new to me :-) It's called "Tea Cakes". (They are kind of like a cookie, only not quite as sweet.) Anyway, I thought I would share it with you! :-)

Tea Cakes
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. Soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup milk
7 cups all purpose flour

Cream butter and sugar well; add eggs,one at a time, then add sifted dry ingredients with the first cup of flour. add milk and enough of the remaining flour to the proper consistency for rolling dough on floured board. Cut in desired shapes, (My little brothers helped me with this part some ! ) :-) place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350* until lightly tanned. (We did 9 minutes, but 10 might be better!)
Store in air tight container.

Note: For extra flavor you could try adding a little almond or lemon flavoring instead of vanilla.
I halfed the recipe this first time.

We had fun with these and I hope you will too! !-)

Chloe :-)
