Monday Morning in the Kitchen: How I Used 40 Pounds of Ground Beef

Blogging rule:  Write when the event is fresh in your mind. 
What I'm doing:  Trying to decipher my handwritten notes and remember what I actually did.  
One of my new favorite mantras:  Brains are not for remembering.  Brains are for thinking. 
My new resolve:  Blog before I forget!

Back in July, I brought home 40 pounds of ground beef from a Zaycon event (in the spirit of full disclosure, that is a referral link).    I mentioned my purchase in a blog post, and I promised to share just how I was going to use that much meat.  My freezer is now well-stocked with plenty of meals!

Ten Things of Thankful: Home Again, Home Again (Jiggety Jig!) Edition

After a wonderful time at Brigham Young University's Education Week, it was time to come back home.  I'm not quite prepared to settle into a fall routine yet, though.  Summer weather in California hangs on, so summer fun must, too.

Ten Things of Thankful: BYU Education Week 2014 Edition

As you may recall, John and I headed to Utah last week.  We rendezvoused there with my brother to retrieve our youngest daughter, who had spent five weeks with his family.  On Sunday, John headed home with youngest daughter (and youngest son, who has a week off between semesters).  I remained in Utah, and have spent the past week at oldest daughter's place while attending Education Week at Brigham Young University.

Ten Things of Thankful: Final (for this Summer) Empty Nest Edition

As of last night, we no longer have an empty nest.  The last five weeks have flown by, because we were having fun.  Not to worry, though, fun will continue; and besides,  it is good to see youngest daughter again!
