We had our Ms. Barbara over for a big family meal on Thursday. We had so much fun...filled w/laughter and reminiscing about the good ol' days. Kristin and I will be posting more pics soon of the great times we've been enjoying!
Today, I finally went and got my IA license switched to TN. How awful is that picture? I do kinda have an excuse...while the DMV lady was taking my picture, I was busy trying to keep Travis from jumping into the picture w/me. But anyway, now I want everyone to post their ugly driver license picture! :) Won't that be FUN! Come on...who's gonna be first? Then, I want Caleb to be the judge and decide who is the winner of the Ugliest Driver License Picture contest.
1 pound ground beef 1 teaspoon Paula Deen's House Seasoning (garlic powder, black pepper, and salt mix) 1 medium onion, chopped 1 cup grated Cheddar 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1/2 cup sour cream 1 cup crushed Ritz crackers 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
2 slices white bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Mix all ingredients together, except the bread slices and Sauce. Shape into a loaf. Line a 1 1/2-quart loaf pan with the bread slices. Place meatloaf on top. Bake loaf for 45 minutes. The bread absorbs the grease and should be discarded after loaf is removed from oven.
Sauce: 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup 1 cup milk 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar 1 bunch fresh parsley leaves, chopped, optional
Heat the soup and milk over medium heat; add the cheese. Add parsley to the sauce, if desired. Pour Sauce over the meatloaf or pass at the table.
I added some cooked crumbled bacon to my uncooked shaped loaf. Also, you might want to saute your onions a bit before putting them into the loaf. We ate this for lunch today...very delicious!
This month's HEDGE meeting was held at the church. The school age children learned about one of our missionary families The Jaggy's located in Indonesia. The children viewed a slide presentation about the country of Indonesia. You can see in the picture below...their lunch consisted of the food the people might eat in Indonesia. Then they all worked on gifts to send the Jaggy's in a care package...the girls decorated a bag for Mrs. Jaggy and the boys painted wooden toys for the three Jaggy children.
At the beginning of the day during the slide presentation and a lecture about our Baptist heritage, Kaleb and Travis were in a class for preschoolers and kindergartners taught by Ms. Lois and Ms. Jean. Excellent class! They learned SO much and were just bursting to tell me ALL about it on the way home! :)
Have you ever been talking to someone and they start to talk all about there new Bible version they just got? Then say to them well I don't like other translations, I believe the King James is the only true Bible. I run into this often and every time they get really defensive and give all kind of excuses why they don't read the King James vs. the others, and they don't really want to hear your view. Any of you have any thing like this?
When you're almost to the top, a camera automatically snaps your picture. Since I am terrified of heights, my picture wasn't anything great to see. :( Kaleb LOVED the ride though...Travis wasn't too crazy about it...and Kevin was fairly okay w/it until Kaleb would rock the chair back and forth! Now this is more my kind of fun...SHOPPING! We also went into Ripley's Mirror Maze...the kids liked that! We ended our wonderful day eating a delicious supper here. These are the last pictures of our fabulous day...hope you enjoyed them!
