Mikey laughing (among other things)

Leah was bouncing Mikey on her knee and he was laughing, so I grabbed the camera. video

A Long Day

Today we went to Stake Conference in Vicksburg. It isn't that long of a drive. However, after missing a morning nap and being in new surroundings for two hours with constant stimulation it is long enough to take a nice snoozer. I was sitting in the back seat because we were taking an newly ordained Elder home and I couldn't help myself. They were too cute. I love to look at my babies while they are sleeping.

Sweet Potato Enchiladas


Last Sunday both Brian and I were prompted to invite a family over for dinner. After the invite, we found that one of the family members is a vegetarian. So I set out to find a recipe for our family to try since almost all of my meals include meat. I found this recipe for Sweet Potato Enchiladas. It sounded a little different but we are always up to try something new. Come to find out these are really good. We made two pans. One pan with red enchilada sauce and one with green enchilada sauce. In the future we will only make them with the green sauce. We served them with Spanish Rice and black beans. It was so good. I forgot to take a picture of them. Oh well. After dinner we played Star Wars Epic Duels (always a hit).

Anyways, good company and good food. A great night had by all.

Yum Yum Brownie Muffins

I have been trying to eat better but still enjoy the flavors. I got this recipe from my daily Hungry Girl email. It has only two ingredients: pumpkin and chocolate cake mix. It is so easy to make and doesn't taste that bad.

1 box devil’s food cake mix
1 can solid pack pumpkin (15 oz.)


Directions:
Mix the two ingredients together. Don't add anything else that may be mentioned on the box, such as eggs, oil, or water. The mixture will be very thick and you will be tempted to add in other things to make the batter smoother. DO NOT DO THIS AS IT WILL RUIN EVERYTHING! Place batter into muffin tins (or mini muffin tins) lined with paper, or sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Makes 12 regular or 36 mini muffins.

Monday the new Saturday

I am so tired from the weekend that I have declared that Monday will be my do nothing day. I just want to spend the whole day in my jammies. Isn’t that what you are supposed to do on Saturdays? Well, to a certain point in the day and then you have to get ready. Maybe in time for dinner and Family Home Evening…
