Thanksgiving Every Day

unnamed (9)

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching!



Friends and Family.

Turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing.

These are the main things on everyone’s mind currently.

Don’t get me wrong I love all the above also except maybe the cleaning part.

Then comes Thanksgiving day and everyone says what they are thankful for and they eat and laugh and have a grand ol’ time.  Then the day is over and we all go about our business.

But what about being thankful each and every day!  We can’t forget to praise God for ALL the things he provides us weather big or small.

Each day is a blessing and we can’t forget that.  One of my favorite moms to follow is Money Saving Mom.  Crystal Paine has some amazing tips! Check her out here. One of the new things she has been busy creating is a Gratitude Journal.  Now there is a special place to keep track of  those big and little things we are thankful for each day.

As mentioned above, time with family and friends is very important.  Adding a delicious meal to the mix is just one added bonus.  Where do we get all the goodies for the big day.  Click here to find out!

God Bless, Crystal

Spring is HERE!!!

As I mentioned awhile back I am going to become a gardener one way or another.  Since spring is FINALLY here we are in the beginning stages of an amazing garden!

We have two wild asparagus bushes in the ditch out by the road but with six people in our family, (all of which LOVE asparagus) two bushes are not enough.

Last fall my husband built an asparagus patch closer to our house.

Our favorite two ways to make asparagus are: 

Wrap it in bacon and grill it

Spread the asparagus on a baking sheet, rub olive oil on them and sprinkle it with sea salt.  Then throw it in the oven (375-400 degrees) for about 40 minutes flipping it half way through until it is crisp.  Yum, Yum, Yum!!!!

As we wait patiently for God to grace us with our own organic, home grown asparagus I thought I would share with you some recipes I have found that I am very excited to try.
