re-cap

It's been a fun past couple of days. Chris and I had two date nights last week which was awesome! We went to a couple of our favorites, Shiki and Wood Ranch. Mmmm! Thursday night we had dinner at his parents house and they had his high school pastor over and his family. They are such great people, it was such a joy to meet them and spend some time with them. Last night we went to grandma and grandpas house for dinner, it was a spur of the moment thing and it worked out so well. We had been missing them so it was great to get down there and spend some time with them and hear more of grandpas stories. I didn't get to video any of them this time, I was too into them. The best part was them telling us how they like to flirt with other people. Grandpa said he has ladies that flirt with him all the time but he doesn't flirt back, he just looks. Grandma loves to flirt and apparently has the men all over her- I believe it! They are too funny! I guess when you have been married for 58 years you can do that.
Both Chris and I worked today. He is at his parents house installing TVs and I worked two weddings at church. The first wedding this morning was interesting and I was put to work right away when the brides dress split. The zipper busted and she was hanging out! So glad I learned to sew a few years back (thanks aunt Jamie!). We sewed and pinned her in as best as we could and sent her on down that isle! I love weddings- they are so much work but so fun to watch.
My kiddos are home from Hume! I got to see them as they arrived today! Sounds like they had a blast, I'm on my way to meet my husband and my family for a nice dinner and to hear all the camp stories...
Ciao!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful.

You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe.

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
