In the groove.....

Schools out for summer and I'm back to blogging! I am using the summer to relax and most of all enjoy time with my little boy.  That also means doing things I enjoy such as blogging, bargain shopping,gardening,crafting and cooking. Look for this blog to evolve into more about that and some baby stuff mixed in such as info on cloth diapering and life in general. Looking forward to making more blog friends as well.

Cooking crazy

Try this for dinner Pancetta and Leeks!

Run don't walk to the store to get these ingredients, you will be so glad that you did and will love Pioneer Woman for it!

Next up the not so winners but still they turned out ok
Devil Dogs
I made this in a sheet cake version only the cake was so so not bad but not what I was expecting and the frosting was ok but since I don't have a whisk attachment on my mixer I don't think the texture turned out right.

I also made Creamy chicken spaghetti casserole this also was an ok recipe the best part was the spaghetti being cooked in chicken broth. The flavor was great it also reheats well but I didn't really see it being creamy.

Another winner was Martha Stewart's  Spinach bacon and onion dip very yummy and made enough to take to a party, but I ended up reheating it the next day.

Checking In

What a summer it has been! After being told for years we could not get pregnant surprise we are! The due date is in February and we will find out later this month what we are having. So that was our main fun of the summer which has left me exhausted and cranky, but things are getting better. I started back to school 2 weeks ago, and I'm in my last 3 semesters of my program which has me technically a senior. I have gotten my fall decor up and hope to put some photo's up soon. Our final rush to finish our house is on with the impending baby, we just have some trim and a bathroom to do.

Cornbread Salad

This was one I didn't think I'd like but when one of my Police Department officers brought it in I gobbled it up. Thank you so much Jason for sharing this! It's quick and easy and get's great reviews! And yes in the picture I forgot the bacon, I actually made it accidentally without bacon but it was still great.

1 box jiffy cornbread use the box recipe then cool and crumble
1 can diced tomato's drained
1 bunch green onions diced
1 package bacon cooked, drained and crumbled

Mix crumbled cornbread,tomato's,green onions,and green onions together. Then add mayo to it until you get all the cornbread covered. This means about 2 big spoonful's for mine, mix well then chill.
