Mexican Squash

 I found this new recipe and it is DELICIOUS and simple. 

Mexican Squash

4 yellow squash - sliced and diced
1 medium onion - diced
1 can of Rotel tomatoes (original)
1 cup of cheddar cheese

In a large pan, brown the squash and onions.
Add the Rotel (use the mild for less heat),
cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add cheese and remove from heat.
I like to put mine in the fridge overnight so the
flavors have time to combine. 
Microwave for 30 seconds and enjoy

Camping Kites

When we go camping, I love to decorate our camp site. My grand kids and I were at the lake for a 6 days so I wanted the campsite to have a fun look, so I made kites. I took two jumbo sticks and glued them together. I sewed 3 sides of the kite, adding string, slipped in the sticks and sewed it closed. I made about 10 of them and the kids got to hang them in the trees. They match the garland hanging on the trailer.

I went to my grandson's baseball game and all the ladies had the cutest shirts on so I decided I wanted one too.
So I cut some iron on letters and applied them to a baseball shirt.
I saw a young girl reading my shirt and it took her a minute to understand, hit (the ball) and steal (the base), that's the look I wanna see!!

Easter Candle Holder

The Easter candle holder from Church is brass and was looking pretty bad. I tried a few different cleaners but I had no luck and the Priest was getting pretty frustrated with the looks of it. I finally decided to spray paint an old piece of metal and see how it turned out. My hubby sprayed the metal for me with some Krylon Gold paint and it looked awesome, so I asked Father if he would want me to paint it and he said yes. I brought the holder home and I knew I had to clean it first. I got some Scotchbrite and scrubbed it and it came clean and it looked almost brand new. So I decided just to put some car wax on it to keep it from tarnishing and I took it to Church. Father was very happy with the way it looked and so was I, I just hope the car wax helps it retain the brass look longer, well at least for a year.

Passover with 6th Graders

We were discussing Moses life and the plagues that were brought down upon Egypt. One of the activities was to imitate a Passover meal, so I whipped up a batch of unleavened bread, the kids said it tasted like a tortilla but mine had a bit of honey in them so they were slightly sweetened. We also had apples with a sprinkling of cinnamon on them. We pretended to be dressed for travel, hats, coats and we sat on the edge of our chair. We had unleavened bread because it is faster to make than regular bread. We would have killed a lamb, cooked it and put some of its blood on the door way. Then the youngest child would ask, what are we preparing for, the Father of the house would then tell the story of the Passover. This was fun and I hope the kids liked it.
