Quick Note with Some Lovely Links


Daughter returned Monday evening from a front-end-of-spring-break 4-day mission trip to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.  Here’s the whole group {missionary family are the 4 on the left, my girl is the one in the front wearing the “Red” shirt}.  They knocked out some serious work and got to love on the kiddos on Sunday for church.  She will return with a larger group in June that will run a kid’s camp.  Proud of my grown-up booger 🙂

Busy with lots of things lately, like making Birthday supper for this guy – Hubby turned 47 yesterday!! {Picture with my niece, Julia).  Things didn’t work for a family meal yesterday…but Pioneer Woman was nice enough to share this recipe for SPICY DR. PEPPER SHREDDED PORK yesterday.  That kinda food is right up his alley!!  I put it in the crock pot this morning with my onion allergy alterations {no onions or chipotles in adobo, which are made with onions…added chipotle powder, cumin, ancho chile powder & fire roasted tomatoes}.  Mmmm…mmm! Gonna serve it up on multigrain torillas topped with Texas coleslaw . For dessert, I’m gonna try to duplicate the flavors of our favorite Village Inn pie in a cupcake.  I’ll post more on that {and cupcakes in general} later!

That’s ‘bout it for now…gotta get back to cookin’ for my man!!

Have a Beautiful Day {especially if it gets a little Crazy}!

That is a lot of driving for such a short period of time.Can't wait to see y'all tomorrow for the Birthday Gathering. Love, Mom
