Breakfast Egg Muffin sandwiches & Sunday

Well our Sunday was a rainy, gloomy, dreary day. Ron (of course!) had a a wonderful message at church today about how "Jesus has the words of Eternal Life". Bible class was a "getting to know you" day of coffee and donuts, and we'll kick off the lessons next week when Ron will have services at West Union at 8:00 am (YUCK!) so he will be around for classes at St. Paul's. YAY!

The rain was a motivator for a nice long nap this afternoon, and then Ron and I went to Adult instruction class at church. A good class, and the last one with this group of people. We've enjoyed having this class with them!

Breakfast meals are definitely a hit around here. Making eggs this "new" way worked beautifully! I've got some in the freezer as well, for one day this week.

Meat, Egg and Cheese "Mc"Muffins

12 English muffins
12 eggs
12 slices cheese
12 Sausage patties

Scramble eggs and add salt and pepper to taste. Add a splash of milk, as desired. Pour onto a cookie sheet with sides. Bake in a 350* oven for 10-12 minutes. Slice with pizza cutter or knift. OR spray a muffin top pan thoroughly with PAM. Fill each hole completely with egg. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until cooked.

Assemble sandwiches without adding cheese. Wrap sandwiches and put them in a larger freezer bag. Label and freeze.

To Serve:Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Microwave on high for one minute. Add a slice of cheese. Microwave on high for 20 seconds.

What a week it has been here at our home! Caleb is doing AWESOME at Cross Country this year. He had two meets, and has earned his FIRST ribbon for coming in 8th in the JV meet...but first for his JV team! He's proud of himself, and glad he chose to run cross country rather than play football this year. I wonder "who's child is this, who WILLINGLY runs 5-6 miles a day?" In my mind, that's insane! But, he loves it, and I'm so glad he's found something that he enjoys. Ron and I are proud of him!

Cameron is playing football, and will have his first game this week. He can't wait! Rachel (6th grade) is pretty much over her middle school jitters and well on her way to sailing through middle school. Ethan was disappointed to discover that his first day of flag football was cancelled today, due to the high school game being played at 1:00 today (after being postponed due to lightening last night).

Ron and I worked at a tournament at the golf course today. Lots of work, but we got to visit with people that we don't often get to socialize with, so it was fun!

Everyone is excited about Sunday School starting tomorrow. Summertime Sunday's are nice and laid back, but we are all ready for that extra time in the Word!

Ham and Scalloped potatoes were on the menu this week and were a huge hit! Peeled, sliced potatoes, cubed ham, cream of chicken soup and sour cream, all layered in the crock pot. EVERYONE wanted seconds of that one :)

My laptop is in the shop AGAIN, due to power supply issues...ugh...hope it is fixed for good this time!

The End of Summer

I always get melancholy over Labor Day weekend. I just love summertime so very much. I love everything about it. Sleeping in, hot sunny summer days, swimming pools, somewhat less hectic schedule, vacation. And I really don't enjoy what is coming up next...the dreaded winter...with all it's ice, snow and cold. me the chills just thinking about it!

Cold season hit our family this past week. I was sick, sick, sick, and Cameron missed 2 days of school already this year! We're both finally on the mend, and praying that no one else in the family gets hit with it! It was a nasty bug!

As I said in my last blog...there wasn't much new and exciting in the kitchen this week. The cinnabon rolls were the extent of the excitement...well...that and the Monkey Bread this morning. That is just a loaf of bread dough (made in the bread machine, of course), broken into little bite sized balls and put in a bundt pan, and layered with a mixture of a package of pudding mix (butterscotch is GREAT!), 1 c. brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or so...mmmmm.

Other than that we had BLT's a couple times this week (thanks to the bags, buckets and boxes of tomatoes that keep mysteriously appearing on our kitchen table). Homemade salsa with nachos. Lunchmeat. BBQ chicken. Nothing exciting, but we ate lots and enjoyed every bite.

Next week looks to be busy with volunteering and subbing, cross country, football, piano and paper routes.

Summer ends, but life goes on.
