The Coffee Maker Saga Continues….

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a great week so far!!!! Mine has been pretty busy! Mom is getting back tomorrow, and we’re all excited about that! Can’t believe that it has already been a week since she left….

Also, since a week can’t go by without something crazy happening, yesterday I broke the coffeepot…….that actually hasn’t kept me from drinking coffee! I learned that in one cycle, the machine brews enough coffee for one mug, so I let it brew, turn it off, and then drain the coffee straight into the mug! hahahaha Whenever someone gets coffee now, I like to say that its “specially made” just for them! 😀 My dad is looking for a replacement pot though, which would probably be a good thing!

So, today’s post is going to be short because I am in the process of moving my blog (maybe). I don’t think that I’ll have my own domain or anything, but I am super interested in the Foodbuzz programs, and unfortunately they do not work with the free version of WordPress. I’m looking in to alternatives today, and I’ll be sure to post on here if I do change my url! I’m also going to try to transfer everything from this blog to the new one, so that all of my recipes and other posts from here will be there, too!

How has your week been so far?

I  might post again later today….we shall see! 😀

Breathe.

Hey! Hope you all have been having a wonderful weekend! What have you been up to? My sister and I hung out at home all morning, and then went with my dad to a Saturday night service at the church in the community! Today, we’re going to hang out some more and go to church later on.

Well, I have officially finished my sophomore year of high school! I honestly can’t believe how fast this year has flown by! In a little over a month, I’ll be heading to Chicago, and by the time I get back, I’ll be starting school again, and our family will receive another mission team from our church in the States!

This weekend, I have really had a great chance to just relax a little bit. This past week I’ve run around like a crazy person trying to get things accomplished, and I believe that I needed to just breathe and relax this weekend. It has been good for me and already I feel re-energized! 😀

I also wanted to share one of my new favorite snacks…..that no one else in the family will eat! 😛 I looove avocados, and in an effort to get some healthy fats in my diet, my mom purchased one for me. I made a spread by combining the avocado, 3/4 c milk (a little bit less, actually), some garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. I then blended everything together and created a yummy, easy avocado spread/dip! 😀

Yummy Green Food! 😛

All for me!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!!

See ya’ tomorrow!

Takin’ Care of Stuff

Heey! I’ve been a bad blogger recently………tests have really been taking up a lot of time! So sorry! I’m finishing my LAST final today, so I should be back to my normal bloggin’ self soon!

So, my mom had to go on a week-long trip to resolve some mission stuff. She’ll be back on Tuesday, so in the meantime, my sister and I are doing a lot of the stuff that she normally does. Like for example, did you know that here you have to sweep and mop every day? Well, you do. And we don’t use dishwashers or drying machines, which means that dishes are handwashed and clothes are hung out to dry. I don’t really mind doing these things, especially since I don’t really have a full workload of school. To me, being productive beats sitting around being bored! 😀 Except for when it comes to cleaning bathrooms……which is my least favorite chore!! What is your least favorite thing to do around the house? 

One thing that I do love to do is cook. I was going to make a soup last night, but the chicken broth that we had was homemade, and wasn’t edible any more, so we created a plan B. Dad ordered a steak from a restaurant up the street, and we had leftover rice, beans and pasta. I also made some biscuits to go with our meal. It was a super-simple and quick recipe, which is great because I had less than 30 minutes to whip them together! 😀

Dinner Biscuits (from Taste of Home)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Half-and-half cream or milk, optional
  • Butter and/or honey

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Combine milk and oil; pour over dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead 5-6 times. Roll out to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-in. biscuit cutter. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Brush tops with cream if desired. Bake at 425° for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter and/or honey. Yield: 6 biscuits.

I actually only ended up with 5 biscuits, but they were delicious and fluffy. Plus, a quick way to round out our meal!

I’ve been loving going to my Wednesday spinning class, however yesterday the teacher couldn’t make it. I ended up spending some quality time on the treadmill…..watching CSI! haha It was the only way I could have possibly stayed on there, and I didn’t have my cardio circuit workout written down with me. Do you have any staple cardio circuits? If so, please share!!!

Well, I should get goin’ on the studying!

See ya’ tomorrow!!!!
