Oh my! How did I not know that fried squash blossoms were a thing?
I just happened to search for ways to use squash blossoms the other day as we have several veggies starting to ripen and it seemed such a waste for those big beautiful blossoms to just wither away. That’s when I found out that fried squash blossoms were a thing and I had to give them a try.
It’s been a long while since we’ve posted any recipes but here’s one we tried out this morning… we started it last night because it does take a little prep but the kids thoroughly enjoyed them. Mr. Joey said it ranked in the ‘Top 20’ of his all time favorite breakfasts.
This is the cheese ball recipe that I’ve been looking for… thankfully my Holiday Binder was still in the house and not packed away in the shed. My Holiday Binder has folders for every major holiday and party that we have celebrated and the recipes that we use for those events… such a timesaver! Kids can help with this too!
This can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer for up to a month. Just wrap the cheese ball tightly in plastic, before covering with nuts, and place in the freezer. Allow it to thaw completely in the fridge before covering with nuts and serving.
I had to do my grocery shopping this past weekend and our internet was DOWN! This meant that I needed to physically go into the store and push the buggy down the aisles… pure TORTURE, right? Well, maybe it doesn’t seem that bad but I have been spoiled by the Walmart Grocery Pickup.

Hmmm… have you thought about what you’ll be feeding those hungry learners? If your kids were in public school you may not have had to think much about it before. If you plan to homeschool then you will be feeding them at least three meals a day and maybe a few snacks in between.
This can turn into a chaotic juggling act if you aren’t prepared. How do we prevent meal time chaos in our home? By meal planning. I even plan out snacks sometimes so I don’t forget to include them on my grocery list. Check out this link for some Healthy Snacks to Go.
It might seem like a lot of trouble but when you find a system that works for then it is so easy. It will actually save you time and money in the long run. This is also a helpful thing even if you don’t homeschool.

We were so very excited to try out Hello Fresh. If you haven’t heard of them they offer a subscription plan where you choose your plan and your meals. They will deliver the meals, fresh from the farm to your home, and they provide a tracking service so you will know when to expect the package. You even have the option to skip a week or two, if needed.
You will need the basic kitchen utensils plus a few things like, butter, olive oil, salt and pepper, and sugar. Other than those ingredients they pretty much provide everything right in the cute little bags they deliver.
This is a recipe that I’ve had for a while and I’ve tweaked it a bit here and there to get it to our liking. I’ve actually had it on the menu plan for the past couple of weeks but haven’t been able to make it as we’ve just had some hectic schedules here lately.
You can call the kids in to help with this one. My littles like to tear up the tortillas and sprinkle on the cheese while the girls like helping to stir the meat and bean mixture and spread the sour cream. You can also let them help make a salad to go along with this yummy dish! Continue reading “Quick and Easy Burrito Casserole”→

It’s true, our little house on the pond is a wreck and I don’t know where we will put all of our guests that are coming tomorrow. Anybody else feel the same way right now?
The past couple of weeks have been super crazy. I guess everyone has been trying to fit everything in before the holiday season. Then we had the time change which is always so much fun around here… can you hear the sarcasm?
This is a reblog of one of my favorite holiday recipes…. I love this cake and I am determined to make it this year… I may even make it before Thanksgiving as I really want to enjoy it. It’s kind of hard to enjoy something so yummy when you are stuffed from all that turkey and other goodies from a big dinner.
Maybe this year we will kind of stretch out Thanksgiving a bit and have a few of our favorites throughout the Thanksgiving/Christmas season so we can enjoy them even more.
Below are links to current and past meal plans that we have used here at our house. We do have many of the same meals on a semi regular basis but I try to work in new meals and recipes from time to time. I try to include links to most of the recipes that we use also.
Please feel free to use these plans to make your own meal plans for your family. You can also check out the Keeper of the Home tab for more information and ideas.
